    The crazies in Canada have created a $1 million coin. The coin weighs 220.5 pounds and is 21 inches in diameter. The hand crafted coins will be produced in extremely limited quantities, and at 99.999% purity, the gold in the coin is actually worth more than twice its $1 million... / Continue →

    This guy used MS Paint to recreate the Mona Lisa. It's compressed down to under 5 minutes but the original took 2 hours and 30 minutes. If you've ever used MS Paint you know how crazy this is. Especially if your computer is like mine, meaning a cardboard box with "computer" wri... / Continue →

    This is a new viral ad from Samsung showing insects getting hit in the face with pies and stuff. I can't tell if it's real but I'm really hoping it is. Only because insects getting hit in the face with pies is number two on my list of all time greatest things. I won't tell you ... / Continue →

    Did somebody order keyboard waffles? No? Well you should've told me that before I made them. And by made them I mean look at a picture of them. Uh, what? Source... / Continue →

    Instructables has a little tutorial on how to make your own toaster art. Basically just cut out aluminum or stainless steel designs and attach it to your toaster. Ta daa! Or try my method: take a permanent marker and draw on your bread. It doesn't taste as good, but it, well, a... / Continue →

    This tubular clock uses words to describe time instead of numbers, similar to the Verbarius clock. Time is displayed on the Tubular Time Clock in phrases such as "quarter past four" and "five minutes past six" instead of the pedestrian "4:15" and "6:05." The clock mounts to a... / Continue →

    A local diver from Juno Beach captured video of this unidentified sea serpent that's over seven feet long. They're calling it a Nemertean Worm, although they can't officially identify it or even what family it belongs to. For now, the Smithsonian is calling it "undescribed." A... / Continue →

    This changing cupboard is built out of turning advertising signs so the surface design is constantly changing. It looks cool as hell, but having this thing in my house would freak me out. Almost as much as the komodo dragon I keep chained in my kitchen. Why do I even have tha... / Continue →

    Apparently there's a virtual dog-walking arcade game in Japan where you, uh, walk on a treadmill and pretend to walk a dog. Sounds almost as awesome as my virtual getting-raped-by-a-giant-tentacle-monster arcade game. They're both huge hits in Japan, but only one involves getti... / Continue →

    digg_url = 'http://geekologie.com/2007/05/the_pessimists_mug.php';Looks like somebody took this idea, and decided to translate it to English and turn it into a mug. The Pessimist's Mug is exactly what it looks like. Uh, unless you thought it was a beaker. Because that's what I... / Continue →

    Our sibling site I Watch Stuff! got their hands on the first shot of Iron Man's suit from the new movie. And it. Looks. Epic. Head on over for the full body shot. Or head over here *points to bedroom* for my full body shot. Source... / Continue →

    If you're pretty serious about your mods and still play your NES, this tutorial is for you. I won't get into the technical stuff, but after some heavy work you'll end up with your very own wireless NES controller. Or a bird house, depending on how good you are at following dire... / Continue →

    Aluratek has created a 10.5" digital picture frame that also plays video. It has 256 MB of flash storage and displays pictures as well as plays MP3s. They're calling it a Digital Lifestyle Device, but I'm pretty sure it's really just a tiny TV. That doesn't play TV. So worse th... / Continue →

    It's about time somebody started reenacting classic Star Wars scenes using those R2-D2 mailboxes. I tried to do a few myself, but I mostly just ended up peeing in them. Source... / Continue →

    Most people like to use paper for their printing needs, but not me. I like to use toast. Good old fashioned toast. Thankfully, these guys have created the world's first toaster printer by mounting a hot air gun to a computer controlled system. Totally unnecessary? Or the most n... / Continue →

    It was a good movie, but who exactly is the market for this doll? Besides me, of course. I already ordered 80. Gajillion. Because really, if you're going to own one 40-year-old Virgin doll you might as well own 80 gajillion.... / Continue →

    The SENZ Umbrella is an aerodynamic umbrella which the manufacturer claims can withstand storms up to wind force 10. I'm not even sure what that means, but if there's one thing I've always said about my umbrellas, it's that I wish they were more aerodynamic. And also made out o... / Continue →

    KJ Global has created a mouse only 5mm thick called the Slim G4. It does everything a basic mouse should do, but also includes a neat storage device for the wire within the mouse. Although this thing is so thin, you'd end up accidentally using your credit card as a mouse and no... / Continue →
