Magic doesn’t always work, and this is a pretty good example of it. An illusionist who competed on “Poland’s Got Talent” with a magic trick, screwed up big time when his “magic” trick didn’t work. In the video, magician Marcin Połoniewicz places a nail into one of four paper bags. He then mixes the bags up and slams his hand down onto one of them and is not injured.

But when TV host Marzena Rogalska is tasked with doing the same, she is not so lucky. She tragically impales her hand with a nail and as a result screams through the TV studio. She was later brought to the hospital, where she was treated. Watch the video below. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016

They do not mess around in China! Footage of a beggar in China, who pretended to be disabled has gone viral. In the footage a random passer-by can be seen walking up to the beggar, and then quickly takes off the beggars trousers.

It takes a little while to finally take off the trousers, but then you can clearly see that the amputee has legs. A miracle? Hardly! The beggar then attempts to roll away. Watch the video below. Was it fair or should he just have left him alone? Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016 .

Youtuber styropyro has built a portable laser bazooka that produces an insane 200-watt beam of light. For reference, a standard laser pointer is 0.005W, while a laboratory laser is 0.5W — meaning it can still damage your eyes even if you’re only staring at the spot of light on the wall.

The device was built by gathering scrap parts and broken electronics on eBay, according to its creator. A direct hit to the eyes would be 33 million more times intense than staring into the sun. So what ever you do, never look at it. Watch the video below. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/Styropyro

You can do that now, if you decided to use the Skyslide, a glass tube on the outside of the U.S. Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles. It just opened on June the 25th and people can use the slide which is 1,000 feet above the ground on the side of the tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi. The 360-degree glass slide looks terrifying. Would you use it? Watch the video below to have a closer look. Make sure you aren’t scared of heights. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016.

Back in 2007 the car company Skoda, created a 1:1 model of their Fabia model made from cake, for a television advert. In total, it took a team of eight people a week to mould the car, and three days to pour the rice crispies. In order to “bake” the car the following items were needed: 10 kg white chocolate chunks, 3 kg orange peel strips, 1 kg Angeliques, 12.5 kg raspberry jam, 100 kg wheat flour, 100 kg caster sugar, 20 kg glacier cherries, 30 kg brown almonds, 20 kg raisins, 25 kg dried apricots, 5 kg cacao powder, 180 fresh eggs, 42 kg chocolate fudge, 180 kg orange sugar paste, 90 kg brown sugar paste, 40 kg black sugar paste, 50 kg white sugar paste, 200 kg cake margarine sun cup, 270 kg icing sugar atlas, and 40 kg mil calets.

The idea was to give the car cake to local charities after the shoot for the ad. However, it is impossible due to the effect of studio lights on the cake over several days. It would have posed a health and safety risk if eaten. Now that is what you can call a big cake! Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016.

If you think you have seen it all then think again. Due to a spontaneous gust of wind these two planes took off and cruised off into the sunset without a pilot. These planes are designed to take off and land on very short distances (STOL) and therefore they are very light. I wonder how far they flew? Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016.
