Just because someone calls it a “challenge” doesn’t mean you have to actually do it.

A boy recently demonstrated his manhood, i.e., stupidity, by popping one of the hottest peppers in the world in his mouth and swallowing it whole.

It’s called a ghost pepper (aka Bhut jolokia) and according to the Scoville Scale which compares various peppers and hot sauces, it’s 208.29 times hotter than a jalapeño.

Pepper expert Scott Roberts told the NY Post that it feels “like the end of the world.”

So this boy’s reaction comes as no big surprise..

He starts crying, screaming like his insides are on fire, spitting into the trash and saying that he is going to die.

Let’s all just decide right now not turn this into any more of a “thing” than it already is.

People have been filming themselves eating these for years and it never turns out well for them.

Here are a few, take this as a warning.

Imagine if you never had pay for bacon ever again… or at least for the next 20 years.

Well now that’s a possibility, thanks to the Hoosier Lottery in Indiana.

They have unveiled a new $2 scratch off game this week called “Bringin’ Home the Bacon,” which is both bacon-scented and gives you the chance to win 20 years worth of the artery-clogging deliciousness.

You can also win up to $10k in cash to pay for all those medical bills from your cardiologist.

The website promoting the new ticket includes a bacon quiz, bacon recipes, a link to Facebookasking you debate Tongs vs Forks, and a “Bacon Cam” where you can watch some strips sizzle in a frying pan.

There are also various events around the state associated with the game (in partnership with Indiana Pork), including one at the Indiana State Far in August.

Now you can gamble with your money and your health.

Thanks ‘Murica!

Introducing the “Marble Tsunami!”

Self-proclaimed “Marble Master” Jelle Bakker has built a giant machine in which over 11 thousand marbles are sent through a winding, jungle-themed maze for no reason whatsoever.

And it’s pretty amazing.

Warning: It’s also very loud, and it goes on like that for about 6 minutes. So make sure to turn your volume down ahead of time.

The whole this is about 33-feet long, 4-feet wide and 6-feet tall.

He started working on it back in April and expects to have it completely fine-tuned by sometime in June. This presumably will include adding some noise-dampening features.

You can also check out more of his contraptions on his YouTube channel.

Looks like we have a new Grumpy Cat on our hands.

YouTuber Onur Armagan tried to impress the Internet this week by showing off his massive whoopee cushion. (Note: It is very impressive.)

But his furry little friend was not as excited about it as he was.

“My cat hates me,” he writes in the caption. “I think she’s secretly been planning my demise since 2011. It’s only a matter of time.”

Nibbles thinks he’s a dog, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Watch as this Rouen duck waits patiently for his best human friend Johnny to come home from school, and as soon as the boy is in sight, he completely loses it.

Johnny also greets him with a few kisses on his bill once all the quacking starts dying down a bit.

It’s only a matter of time before he learns to bark.

His owners explain that Nibbles wears a tiny diaper so that he can go on car rides and spend time in their house.

Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the clips on their YouTube channel.

Here they are going for a walk down the street together set to “Stand By Me.”

And here he is eating Johnny’s homework, just like a dog is supposed to do.

God paid a visit to Maine this week, and it was scary as Hell.

A high school student in Grand Isle recently captured the insane moment that lightning struck the steeple of a church.

Carl Bouley was filming the rain over St. Gerard Catholic Church from his porch across the street when it happened, and his volunteer firefighter father went over afterwards to check on the damages.

The church has has actually been struck before in August of 2007, according to the Maine Sun Journal.

“It kind of scared me a bit,” he told the Journal. “It felt like a small shockwave hit.”

A second camera was able to capture what happened on the ground below at the exact same moment.

Great Scott!

Well, it’s only a matter of time now.

We’ve seen self-flying drones, supercharged drones, robotic hell hounds that can withstand a good kicking and human-like bots that are taking over businesses in Japan.

Pretty soon we will be slaves to these things, which are growing smarter every day.

Researchers at MIT have successfully created “the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously” thanks to new technological developments with its DARPA-funded robotic cheetah.

It uses a built-in laser system called LIDAR to see things in its line of vision and then figures out the best way to go get over it.

For example, imagine a swarm of rebel Amazon drones just dropped a bunch of Kindle Fire tablets on your head putting you out of commission.

If one of these robotic cats happen to come across your lifeless corpse, it could very easily leap over it without any sort of human guidance.

Here’s an explanation of how it works from MIT’s press release:

To get a running jump, the robot plans out its path, much like a human runner: As it detects an approaching obstacle, it estimates that object’s height and distance. The robot gauges the best position from which to jump, and adjusts its stride to land just short of the obstacle, before exerting enough force to push up and over. Based on the obstacle’s height, the robot then applies a certain amount of force to land safely, before resuming its initial pace.

It was able to successfully conquer hurdles up to 18-inches tall while going about 5mph.

Here’s a less threatening video of the cheetah running across some grass, but don’t be deceived by the innocent-looking prance.

The end is neigh.
