I’m not afraid to admit that I once with through a short phase in my life when I was really into disco music. I was a child and those were the only dance moves I knew. You may think you hate disco music, but you have to admit, at minimum, your leg starts bouncing or your head starts bobbing when Rick James, KC & The Sunshine Band, or the Bee Gees come on the radio.

Kids say the darndest things…so much so that there was a whole TV show made about it. Kids never really quite understand exactly what adults do for a living, so it’s really fun to hear about the little things they pick up on and then watch them try to put the pieces together.Read More
We’ve written about couple interesting demolitions recently, such as a Plano, TX water tower and a historic Detroit hotel, but, even though both of those were completed with no problems, demolitions don’t always go so smoothly. The videos below highlight some of the worst demolitions ever caught on tape and most of them are pretty hilarious.Read More
How do you give a hammer some swag? You let your personal swag absorb into the hammer by not just placing the hammer in your tool belt, but by nonchalantly tossing it into the air and catching it with your tool belt, like Jimmy Brennan Pedro does in the video below.Read More
The video below shows a Scottish construction worker cleverly trying to land a hard hat on his head by creating a catapult with a piece of lumber. It doesn't go very well.Read More
