This week, we’re taking a break from posting videos of a hydraulic press destroying something. But to satisfy our need to see something being crushed, we bring you hippos devouring watermelons. There’s something oddly satisfying watching these lumbering giants eat whole watermelons in one
Whatever you do, try not to stare too long at the rotating objects. You might just go into a trance. We’re not strangers to this kind of act, but this guy’s isolations of his props, including 8 ring, triple hoop, yin yang, puyo pop ring, and buugeng eightyring are on another level.
We’re not sure if Rcbif was working hard or hardly working, because he had time to build a useless contraption only people who are bored af would think of building.

The folks at Vat19 wanted to introduce their Giant Jenga in a dramatic fashion — by setting it ablaze. Watch as they light their set on fire and play a game with the help of a fire retardant goo on their hands. We hope this goes without saying, but please don’t try this at home.
One thing is for sure, the folks at Hydraulic Press Channel have no shortage of items to test against their machinery. In their latest episode, a bowling pin and a bowling ball feel the pressure. The pin simply got crushed, but what happened to the ball was totally unexpected.
According to Animal Danger, hippos are one the most aggressive animals out there and continues to be a danger to those who live in Africa so we’re not sure what kind of magic pool this hippo in a Japanese zoo is swimming in because it’s anything but threatening.
Ben Tardif’s Marble Mountain may have taken him more than three years to create, but we say it’s 1,095 plus days well spent. This kinetic sculpture sends marbles on an endless loop through 25 different environments with winding roads, tiny staircases and ski ramps.
