    This is a video of some real life Pac-Man action. The video was created by Remi Gaillard (of real-life Mario Kart fame), who I assume is France's Jackass. Although I did like like the part where he tried to eat the woman's golf ball. Through a garden hose! Which, at least a... / Continue →

    The Abisko Washbasin from Eumar isn't even a basin. It's a freaking waterslide. A waterslide sink that drains onto the floor. How hilarious would it be if some bar installed this thing and forgot to put in the drain? Or even better -- you clogged it with a bunch of paper to... / Continue →

    Converse All-Stars aren't really my thing, but I would make an exception and rock the hell out of these mama-jammas. Inspired by The Secret of Monkey Island, the shoes were hand-painted by a Spanish fan with scenes from the game (the opening and an insult swordfight). Awesome... / Continue →

    Japanese erotic game maker Teatime's latest perversion comes in the form of Tech48, a platform which allows players to look at the in-game characters using head-tracking technology via webcam. What does this mean to the lay-pervert? More realistic upskirt action. Wow, using ... / Continue →

    This is the Super Mario Bros. theme being played using the step motors of a laser cutter. It sounds just like you think it would (read: PEWLESS). Still, it's kinda cool. Not as cool as a cold one, but *glug glug glug* my God that's delicious. Now, what were we just talking ... / Continue →

    The Legway was the original inspiration for Gob Bluth's preferred method of transportation, the Segway. As you can see, it's made out of copper piping, wood, and a heaping portion of leg muscle. It's actually a variation of the Universe Cycle, with handlebars. I'd love to s... / Continue →

    LOLTATZ is like LOLCATZ but instead of cute animals there's a bunch of questionable tattoos. Obviously some people don't recognize a Metroid when they see one, but that's okay. I posted a bunch of my favorites after the jump, which you should definitely look at because most o... / Continue →

    This is a video of an 8-bit water slide in real life. I honestly have no idea what that even means, but it's a pretty cute stop-motion movie. Geez, what the hell did you expect folks -- it's Friday and I'm running on fumes. Paint fumes! *SNOOORT* OHMIGOD, YES -- DO ME IN TH... / Continue →

    That's right folks, the four men (Peter Sunde, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Fredrik Neij and Carl Lundstrom) most intimately linked to The Pirate Bay, a torrent-tracking portal I know absolutely nothing about and have never visited except to take this screenshot, have been found gu... / Continue →

    Strathclyde Police, Scotland's largest police force, says eight of its officers (and two of its civilian staff) listed Jedi as their official religion on voluntary diversity forms, making them the least feared police force ever. The details were obtained in a Freedom of Info... / Continue →

    Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When They Roar is a little Flash game you can play online (not to be confused with Jetpack Brontosaurus). Basically you're a robotic dinosaur that flies around shooting laser beams out of its mouth to destroy little balls and planes and a spinn... / Continue →

    We've already featured a gin and tonic fog room before, but that was part of an art installation, and this is an actual London bar, where you can go get all tyrannosaurus-wrecked on gin-vapors, then fish & chip it up and puke on the Underground. Good times. Plus, the use of a... / Continue →

    This is a viral ad for Samsung's new I8910 camera phone. I found the guy in the video annoying but I would do his girlfriend. Twice. Once with the lights on. OUR CHALLENGE: GUESS HOW WE DID THIS. This clip was shot on an I8910 HD phone, a new camera phone just released by S... / Continue →

    THEY'RE DINOSAURS! No wonder I was always so drawn to the lumbering giants so much. Admit it -- I'm not the only one who's lighted his saber during the Hoth battle scene, right? Right? AT-AT Walker X-Rayed: It's a Dinosaur! [gizmodo]... / Continue →

    The Triforce is a shot made of equal parts dark rum, banana liqueur, and Goldschläger. It sounds delicious (minus the combination of rum, banana and cinnamon), and I'm going to drink them until I start seeing fairies. You know, like Julia Roberts in Hook. But way nakeder. ... / Continue →

    I'm sure this sort of thing has been done before (OLD!) but that doesn't make the feat any less impressive. Or fun to watch. Which is why I'm posting it. I DON'T NEED YOUR PERMISSION! Well, what do you say, can I? Haha, I meant touch your boobs! At first I photographed ... / Continue →

    Some guy went and built a thermal lance (cutting torch) that runs on pure oxygen and the fat from bacon (well, prosciutto). As you can see from the picture, the 5,000°F grease-flame is hot enough to burn through a pan, and straight to our hearts. *swoon* A thermal lance, ty... / Continue →

    The LED watch was designed by Hironao Tsuboi and appears to just be a metal band. But it's actually hiding a deep, dark secret: it once ran over a bum and didn't stop! Or, LEDs. Push a button, BOOM: the time. Don't push the button, BOOM: no time. Push my buttons, BOOM: fis... / Continue →

    I know what you're thinking, and no, the PediSedate isn't an unmarked van and bandanna soaked in chloroform. It's a Game Boy hooked up to a nitrous oxide tank! Designed to distract kids while you gas them at the doctor's/dentist's office, it might just be the best invention e... / Continue →

    This is the second in a series of highly questionable commercials (tulips on the mound -- WTF?!) for the Shick Quattro For Women TrimStyle with Bikini Trimmer. Which, if you couldn't tell by the name, is a beaver cleaver. Now I'm not going to go into the racial stereotypes pr... / Continue →

    Tetris furniture: it just makes sense. Furniture is blocky, tetrads are blocky, BOOM-SHACKA-SHAKE'N'BAKE -- Tetris furniture. It's tetradical! Except -- why does that long block have five squares? Artists Diego Silvério and Helder Filipov have created a beautiful furniture... / Continue →

    Well earlier this week we saw the best dinosaur costume ever, and now, the best tattoo. I really love the realism. And by realism I mean how the guy is obviously sitting on one of the dinosaur's spines -- because that's how I ride. This Is A Very Good Tattoo [holytaco] Than... / Continue →

    A six-year old found a bunch of nudey pictures on the PSP his mother purchased for him from Walmart and got all upset about it and cried to his mommy. Tamatha said she found a memory card inside the PSP containing hundreds of pornographic pictures. She claimed it's not hers an... / Continue →

    The Cloud is a levitating sofa that floats thanks to magnets and, I suspect, a tiny wizard. Unfortunately, it's only conceptual. Which, for those of you who don't know what conceptual is, means really soft. You should buy one. Cloud is a sofa concept designed for ultra comf... / Continue →

    NOTE: NSFW VIDEO IS NSFW DUE TO LANGUAGE FAKE!!!! This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong. This is exactly like that time I visited Geekologie and read the comments, then put a gun in my mouth and cried. We Didn't Start T... / Continue →

    Well, we ended yesterday with the BA-K-47, and now we're kicking Wednesday off right with a hamburger (technically a cheeseburger) cake. In case you couldn't tell, or your mommy is reading this to you while you eat your oatmeal, a hamburger cake is a cake made to look like a h... / Continue →

    The BA-K-47 is a full size replica of an AK-47 made out of bacon (and wire). Quick, put it in my mouth and pull the trigger! Mmmm, lardy! We had our first annual Bacon Day this past Saturday. As a huge fan of bacon, and all the great bacon blogs out there, I decided it was t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Isao Machii, who is billed as a modern-day Samurai, showing off his skills with the blade. It's a long video, so I'll direct you to the good parts. 1:45: Cuts the top half of a mushroom's cap off. Sent shivers down my pants. 3:30: Horizontally cuts a b... / Continue →

    That's right, son, spotted for the first time since like the year -5 billion: God's hand! The image, taken by NASA's space-based Chandra Observatory telescope, shows an X-ray nebula 150 light years across. NASA says the display is caused by a young and powerful pulsar, known... / Continue →

    The Grass Wheel was created by David Gallaugher, Kevin James, and Jacob Jebailey of the Dalhousie School of Architecture, and provides a comfortable, shoe-free mode of eco-transportation in the concrete jungle (grass-sandals guys, just saying). And I think we can all agree, it... / Continue →

    The Human Regenerator is a $553,400 piece of monkey shit that's supposed to make you live longer or something. Personally, I think it looks suspiciously like Superman's tanning bed of solitude. The Human Regenerator is a Quantum-Pulse-Device that imitates and generates the ce... / Continue →

    Apparently some guy was huffing pinecones when he accidentally snorted a bud into his lungs, where it grew into a little tree. Please note: man was not actually snorting pinecones, I just made that up for the sake of providing you with the highest quality investigative journal... / Continue →

    This is by far one of the coolest videos I've seen in awhile. In it, the Mythbusters attempt to fuse metal and pancake a compact car using a rocket-sled traveling at 650MPH. The results are....amazing. And why I don't drive. With a license. Youtube Thanks to snipmint, w... / Continue →

    This is probably older than the topical gel I found in the back of my medicine cabinet while hunting for my Valtrex multi-vitamins, but that doesn't affect the cuteness. As you can see, it's a cat dressed up as Link. Making him the coolest cat ever (besides your own, I'm sure... / Continue →

    Dripping candle is dripping. But seriously, I've been looking for a way to spice up the ol' love life, and my hand doesn't go numb anymore. So I've been thinking about ordering a hooker. I guess what I'm getting at is this: as a natural-born pyromaniac, is bring a flame into... / Continue →

    NOTE: VIDEO IS CLEAN VERSION. UNCENSORED ONE AFTER THE JUMP. If you haven't seen this already it's the latest video from The Lonely Island's album Incredibad. This particular ditty is called 'Like A Boss' and it's all about a normal day in a boss's life. It's pretty much wh... / Continue →

    I say almost because there's no such thing as a cute robot. They're all just disgusting machines, only interested in the demise of the human race and reproducing like rabbits with their rusty metal phalli. But still, Tweenbots are the closest a robot has ever come to almost b... / Continue →

    Lippi Selk'bags cost $125-$150 and look like wearable sleeping bags. Because that's what they are -- sleeping bags that you wear. Any of you lovely ladies interested in sharing one with me? Awesome -- I get it on weekends! Lippi's Selk'bag is made for mobility, comfort ... / Continue →

    My God what I wouldn't give to be that guy. Best costume ever? You be the judge.* *Unless you answered "no", in which case, you seriously suck at judging. Picture [izismile] Thanks to Spikey DaPikey, who knew how inherently sexy this was as soon as he saw it. Spikey, we s... / Continue →

    Parishioners at a Protestant church in Vasteras, Sweden, kicked off Easter yesterday with the unveiling of a 6-foot tall, 30,000 piece LEGO Jesus. *eyeballing own 6", 18-piece LEGO Jesus* Nice, guys, way to 1-up me. It took the 40 volunteers about 18 months to put all the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a two-year old playing Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and pulling off Zangief's Double German Suplex simply by mashing all the buttons. Which, ironically, is how I play. My two year old son's first time in front of the joystick, playing against another ... / Continue →

    The Bulbdial clock is like a sundial except, instead of the sun, it uses little LEDs to cast shadows from the timepiece's center spoke. Impressively, it casts three different shadows to correspond to the hours, minutes and seconds. It achieves this feat by having three tiers ... / Continue →

    And in celebrity-related undead news, Woody Harrelson beat up a photographer and blamed it on the fact he thought the dude was a zombie. Good lookin', Woody. Harrelson, who is being sued by another TMZ photographer for an alleged assault in 2006, did not deny his involvemen... / Continue →

    Omegle is a free chat service that connects you to a one-on-one conversation with a complete stranger. And as you can see from my screencap, most people are idiots. Still, there is some fun to be had if you're bored. And by 'fun' I mean I put on my robe and wizard hat. Ladie... / Continue →
