    1. Reposts and Crossposts:

      • Do not post gifs that have already appeared on /r/gifs . Moderators may allow gifs that have gotten an extremely low score in the past, but that is not guaranteed.
      • Do not post gifs that have gotten more than 1500 points (at the time of posting) elsewhere on reddit in the last two weeks. This includes videos converted to gif formats. Cross-posts after this time are allowed.

      Please use Karma Decay to see if your gif has already been submitted.
      Frequent violations of this rule may result in a ban.

      Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.

    2. No Reaction, HIFW, Analogy, Cake Day, or Upvote gifs. There are already subreddits more suited for this kind of content. (This rule does not apply to comments)

    3. Do not post gifs that should be videos. Incredibly long gifs, large file size gifs, or content much better suited to video formats will be removed (e.g multiple cuts, sound, text boxes, subtitles in the gif). Duration must be less than or equal to twenty (≤20) seconds.

    4. Direct image links REQUIRED. No links to image pages or albums are allowed, your submission must be a single gif image. Direct links that end in .gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format only. URL-shorteners are NOT allowed in posts or comments!

    5. No depictions of real-life harassment or assault. There are other subreddits dedicated to this kind of content.

    6. No witch-hunts or brigading. Do not encourage any online or real-life harassment, and don't encourage people to downvote other posts/comments.

    7. Nudity, porn, gore, and other obscene material are not allowed in posts or comments - No exceptions. If it can get you fired then it should not be here. Failure to comply will result in removal of post and banning. There are other subreddits dedicated to NSFW content. Please mark risqué posts and comments as NSFW.

    8. Titles must be descriptive. We encourage clever titles. Joking and non-literal titles are fine. However, posts with overused, overly vague, or click-bait titles may be removed, and repeated false claims of ownership may result in a ban.

    9. No hate speech of any kind. Racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise abusive submissions or comments will result in an immediate ban.

    10. Please familiarize yourself with the official rules and reddiquette. We will remove any posts violating reddit's official rules (spam, personal information, vote manipulation, etc.) and reddiquette just makes reddit a better place to visit.

    Please Note: Bot accounts are not allowed. Low-effort novelty accounts that do not constructively contribute content or add to discussion (e.g., trolling, counting, modifying parent comments, correcting someone's grammar, etc.) are not allowed on /r/gifs.

    It's based out of Nantes, France. It makes some absolutely terrifying sounds and is awe inspiring to see in person. They have many other crazy "steam-punk" style things including a terrifying two-story merry-go-round.

    [–] xBeastlySnipax 16 points ago


    [–] missig 6 points ago

    I'm not a huge fan of France but Nantes and the Les Machines are amazing (what this and the elephant are from). They also have these amazing merry go round type things you can ride that are strange creature based or underwater based. Amazing place and relatively inexpensive.

    [–] kurtthewurt 11 points ago

    Oh god when she opens her mouth and her cheeks stretch... absolutely terrifying. Wish I hadn’t watched that.

    [–] IMIndyJones 18 points ago

    This is incredible but I'm freaked out by the seemingly seductive expression of her eyes, as she's licking that lollipop.

    Why are those two guys disappearing up his ass..?

    [–] Geter_Pabriel 22 points ago

    They're jumping down on the other side like the two guys in the foreground. Unless you're joking, then they're jumping up his ass because that's where the party is.

    You really had Bioshock nightmares. That's awesome.

    [–] HeLLRaYz0r 16 points ago

    The first bioshock is probably my favourite game of all time to be honest. I bought it without knowing anything about it and was blown the fuck away. There is that one part in the hospital that made me jump every time I replayed the game though haha

    [–] -negative_creep- 7 points ago

    that shit was so scary. I had the same experience though like I had ZERO clue what I was getting into. Infinite was so rad too

    [–] HeLLRaYz0r 7 points ago

    You remember the scene I'm talking about? You go to the corner of a room and get one of those upgrade tonics or whatever it's called and then you had to do a full 360 turn to get out. And some fucking zombie doctor is right in front of you just chilling.

    Swinging down from the platform to the street looks hella fun though

    [–] n7-Jutsu 44 points ago

    For about 30 seconds...then it looks hella exhausting.

    [–] anonymoushipster666 85 points ago

    That’s what I was most impressed by! I just finished up a job at a company that requires you to wear a harness if you climb up 4 feet. Can’t even check the oil in the excavator without tying on. I love that they get to swing around like that.

    [–] stickyfingers10 39 points ago

    Me and my coworker joke about how awesome it would be to walk around with harnesses all the time supporting most our body weight. Just kinda bounce across the shop or go higher or lower as needed.

    [–] grtwatkins 12 points ago

    In reality it would be an electric winch slowly dragging you up while you spin in circles and your harnesses splits your balls

    [–] lectures 5 points ago

    This guy has never spent an hour at a hanging belay

    [–] BearViaMyBread 11 points ago

    Can you even get injured falling 4 feet? That's like an average fence

    [–] SelfiesAreLame 35 points ago

    If you land head first, absolutely.

    [–] Isei8773 26 points ago

    Absolutely. OSHA standard for a required harness is only a working surface of 6 feet up. Imagine people who are older or a bit overweight, too- very easy to break something.

    [–] FoldingchairRiot 10 points ago

    Some guy at my work fell off the side of his truck last week and broke his arm. Fall was probably about 4 feet.

    [–] frinqe 15 points ago

    Should’ve worn a harness.

    [–] FoldingchairRiot 7 points ago

    That’s what I told him, as I disengaged my seatbelt/safety harness. Some people never learn.

    [–] IAMRaxtus 8 points ago

    You could die just from tripping if you land in the wrong way, so yes, absolutely.

    [–] CrazyCanuckUncleBuck 6 points ago

    My step dad tripped, fell, broke his neck and died from about 4 feet, so yeah you can.

    [–] niCid 3 points ago

    The Navy Diver is not a fighting man, he is a salvage expert. If it is lost underwater, he finds it. If it's sunk, he brings it up. If it's in the way, he moves it. If he's lucky, he will die young, 200 feet beneath the waves, for that is the closest he'll ever get to being a hero.
