One man’s attempt to own every VHS copy of Speed that currently exists has turned into The World Speed Project. The idea was born out of something called the The Jerry Collection in which a guy in LA tried to own every VHS copy of Jerry Maguire.

I don’t want to spend money on this. If a copy’s more than $4, I’ll just steal it. But that’s not going to make me stop. That’d be the same as somebody saying like, “It’s impossible to make the world a good place, so I’m not going to try.” If the idea is awesome, I’m just going to devote myself to it regardless.

The man behind this, Ryan Beitz, already has 550 copies of the movie, many of which he’s storing in a van he plans to turn into a replica of the bus. If you’re so inclined, you can even send your copy of Speed to Beitz and help him with his mission.

Have you ever wondered what Harry Potter would look like as 1980′s cyber punk anime? Well, wonder no more because the crazed minds at Nacho Punch have created this brief video to show you. It not only pokes fun at Harry Potter, turning Hogsmeade into a whole new kind of town, but spoofs anime, too. Enjoy a little time in a world that J.K. Rowling never imagined.

It’s something special when a guy can use the most mundane of everyday objects to effectively explain something as complex as fluid dynamics. That’s exactly what Destin does in his Smarter Every Day series, and in this video he uses a minivan, a balloon, and his adorable kids in his demonstration.

It seems like a simple question. Which direction will the balloon tethered to the floor of the minivan move when Destin accelerates? You likely have an answer in your head and that answer is likely wrong. Watch as Destin explains the science behind it all in the video after the break…

This beautiful work-in-progress art is the brainchild of James Hance. We’ve featured work by James Hance in the past with everything from Winnie the Pooh/Star Wars mashups to Doctor Who to Adventure Time. Now he’s put Princess Leia with Indiana Jones. I don’t think that counts as cheating on Han, does it?

Every wonder how many video games have been made in the history of video games? Pastebin user Data_Baser is going to have your answer once he finishes compiling what promises to be an impossibly huge list. He’s been working with the help of folks over on 4chan to create the list and plans to include console, PC, mobile and browser-based games. He’s using regular expression to search the internet so he gets everything, but the list is still far from complete, even though it’s pushing 50,000 entries.

Check out the list after the break…

This proposed Lego Ice Palace from Disney’s Frozen is currently up for voting on Lego Cuusoo. It’s a beautiful rendition of the palace that user Fohzen made when his daughter asked if there was one and he realized it didn’t exist.

This is intended to fill a big void out there in what I feel is lacking a bit-the larger set/collectible girl Lego market. Let’s face it though, both my boys and millions around the globe want an Ice Palace too!

Not only did he make a fantastic and very icy-looking palace, but he’s got minifigs too. There’s Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and the Snow Monster. He said he also has plans to make Sven and Kristoff if the project goes beyond the 10,000 votes needed for consideration and eventually gets approved for production.

It’d be a whole different ballgame with Pokémon in the league. Micah Coles has redesigned the logos of NBA teams to include different Pokémon characters. You’ve got to admit, some of these look at least as good if not better than their real world counterparts.

This giant mecha was recently erected in Tokyo, Japan as part of a promotion for the new Patlabor movies. The life-sized AV-98 Ingram was first spotted in Yokohama but has now made its way to Tokyo’s Kichijoji. Just imagine seeing that suddenly standing on the corner as you turn onto the road.
