When two competing construction companies in China tried to settle a dispute over a job, instead of being civil, they opted for the “let’s take things outside” route…
While that might sound pretty harmless too, things escalated quickly…because they were using their bulldozers instead of their fists.
The result is pretty much what would happen if the Transformers fought while staying in vehicle form. Luckily, no one was hurt, so we can all sit back and enjoy the hell out of this clash of industrial titans.
This is pretty much how I used to play with my Tonka trucks as a kid…only these bulldozers are REAL here.
According to Vox, China’s construction industry has been experiencing extremely low growth for the past few years, so it’s understandable that tensions would be high between builders. But should you really be destroying your own equipment during a recession? Not that I’m complaining — that was supremely awesome to watch!

A bucket list staple for intrepid travelers, Hawaii’s Haiku Stairs attract hundreds of adventurers every year.
This hiking trail on the island of O’ahu is made up of almost 4,000 steps, and it provides climbers with unbeatable views from atop the Ko’olau mountain range. The only catch? Sadly, it’s been illegal to use the trail since 1987, and a storm rendered the stairs totally unsafe in 2015.
And if you know anything whatsoever about humans, you know that plenty of people go right ahead and ignore all of that nonsense on a daily basis.
In fact, one search on Yelp yields hundreds of reviews written by daredevils who decided to climb the Haiku Stairs anyway.
One such daredevil built a swing alongside the trail because that doesn’t sound like a terrible idea at all.
As you might imagine, young people have taken it upon themselves to say, “You know what? I’m going to swing on it because who even values human life, am I right?”
Ah, youths. They’re so artistic and definitely not stupid at all.
Needless to say, authorities were nice and angry when they realized that they’d most likely been duped by teens with some rope and a wooden plank. Here’s some news coverage read by adults with functioning brains.
I’m willing to bet any amount of money that the people behind this swing set it up for Instagram.
After all, if you don’t constantly provide total strangers with proof of your life experiences, they didn’t even happen! Science. To learn more about this story of pure, unadulterated stupidity, check this out.

There are a few good reasons why we should heed people’s warnings when it comes to eating raw meat.
Nobody wants to get sick, so most of us follow that suggestion pretty well…except for when it comes to eating meals like sushi, which we consider to be safe. But after the completely disgusting experience that this lady had after eating raw fish, I’m pretty sure she’ll be skipping that takeout favorite from now on.
When a woman in Nanao, Japan, went to the hospital two hours after eating uncooked salmon, she was very sick and in a lot of pain. When the doctor put a camera down her throat and into her stomach, he discovered eleven horrifying roundworm larvae inside. And when you watch the doctor remove one wriggling larva, I’m betting you’ll overcook your meat from now on to avoid this horror.
They’re so disgusting. I can’t take this.
Well, that’s an image I’ll never be able to get out of my head. Anyone hungry for some sushi? I didn’t think so.

Cue music… Just kidding.
1. YouTuber Joseph Costello went out to Venice Beach to ask people to dance in front of a camera. He tells them that he’ll add music in later, but he never does, resulting in an awkward two-minute video.
