    Francois Knorreck spent ten years and $20,000 to create this "Snaefell", a motorcycle with a sidecar made from an actual car. It looks pretty damn sleek. Not as sleek as my mane, but I use women's haircare products. Also, hygiene producst. What? I can have a cycle too! Hi... / Continue →

    The world's largest alarm clock is actually the sun, but I'll look past that for the sake of this scary bitch, who's convinced he's made the largest. Now I don't want to ruin the video for you, but there is absolutely no way he originally designed that as an alarm. The World'... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery of Master Chief's high school senior portraits. As you will see, he was one dapper young lad. And probably the star of the football team. Which means, more than likely, he dated all the cheerleaders and made fun of people like me. Yeah, Master Chief... / Continue →

    In an ironic twist, an emotionless robot has been programmed to physically display emotions using it's face and body. It is one of the scariest looking robobastards I've seen and IT DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT ITS ACTIONS MEAN. It's like asking a robot if it knows what love is. Y... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure this is every five-year old boy's first invention. Of course, few have the technical know-how to make it happen. And even fewer are allowed to play with power tools. But grownup Ray Bavetta kept the dream alive and slapped a 3.7HP model airplane engine on a ... / Continue →

    The Kush is a $55 (PLUS S&H!) piece of molded plastic women put between their breasts before bed to "gently support and cushion the weight of a woman's breasts". $55, really? For $10 I'll come over and slip my own, much more natural breast supporter between those puppies. Ob... / Continue →
