    I've been trying to avoid iPad related material because, damnit, I just don't care. What do I look like, a tech blogger? Please. Anyway, I am posting this video of Pee-Wee Herman with an iPad because, well, I didn't know he still made videos. Just don't expect too much in t... / Continue →

    I don't know about you, but I shoot to kill. Especially when it comes to protecting my castle (rent-controlled apartment). So I'm gonna have to pass on the Koosh bullets. AND seconds. Really, I'm stuffed. Lightfield has been selling these projectiles to law enforcement a... / Continue →

    This is a smattering of Pokémon characters drawn in a traditional Japanese style (high-res shot of more HERE). The artist took the time to recreate all 151 original monsters though, so you'll have to hit the link at the bottom if you gotta see 'em all. See what I did there? ... / Continue →

    This is a rap about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the stress it puts on a relationship. Which is exactly why I don't play it. Also, I don't know if it was just me or what, but the bass sounded like complete ass. Not a sexy, shapely tush either, I'm talking about a super f... / Continue →

    Alright this is probably the last personal ad I'll be posting because, damnit, I can't play cupid all the time. But, since I posted a guy's ad earlier this week, here comes a girl's in response BECAUSE I'M NOT SEXIST. Sex-y, yes, sex-ist, no. So, any of you male readers in t... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery by College Humor's Jeff Rubin of Mario suits that Nintendo mistakenly left out of the games. Geez, way to drop the ball, Nintendo. Also, the soap. Haha -- gimme that butt! Hit the jump for several more.... / Continue →

    Finally, a piece of office equipment that quickly and efficiently turns used printer paper into rolls of toilet paper. That's right, The White Goat -- wait, The White Goat? WTF kind of name is that? Because goats can eat tin cans? Just pop in about 40 sheets of paper, and... / Continue →

    You know that saying, "more than a mouthful's a waste"? Yeah, me neither. And apparently neither does Australia. The country has decided to ban smaller looking breasts from adult content because of pedo-y concerns. The ban (RC) on small breasted women in adult publications ... / Continue →

    Looking for that perfect Valentine's gift that says, well, whatever the hell you chose to pre-record? Well you're in luck, thanks to the $6 'Red Recording Rose'! And, if there's one thing I know about women, it's how much they love plastic novelty roses that talk when you pus... / Continue →

    NOTE: F-bomb at 0:24 so turn down the volume there but still listen cause it's funny. This is a news report on how to report the news. It's 100% accurate and will blow your mind wide open like a knowledge bomb just went off inside your skull. Which -- are you getting all thi... / Continue →

    Did you know Super Mario 3 was actually just a play? I did, because I'm observant. Yeah, CSI wanted me to join their team but I turned them down because I don't do dead bodies. Figuratively or literally. Sure I poked a run-over opossum with a stick once BUT ONLY CAUSE HE WA... / Continue →

    Hot on the heels of yesterday's 'No More Hiding Dungeon Master's Guides In You B-Hole' story comes these giant inflatable D20 dice. Each 17-inch die takes only a minute to inflate, and even less to deflate with a pocketknife. $12 get's the ball die rolling. And, since it is ... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is a picture of the internet (high-res version HERE). Only thing is, I freaking live in the internet and it doesn't look all that familiar. I mean, where are all the naked ladies? Everybody knows the internet is at least 40% naked ladies. AND men. I just shy... / Continue →

    Sure the picture isn't actually D&D, but you work with what you're given, homey. Anyway, Kevin T. Singer (and boy does he sing in the shower, let me tell you), a 33 year-old serving a life sentence for first-degree intentional homicide, recently lost a federal lawsuit to allow ... / Continue →

    Unicorn shaped key covers: genius. As if my pockets could even contain any more magic! Once upon a time single-horned ponies were pretty hard to find and could only be caught by unethical means. Now you can snag our UniKeys Unicorn Key Caps merely by paying the modest price, ... / Continue →

    Link. Link. LINK! Nooooooooooooooo!! Somebody fetch this little guy a fairy, STAT! Damnit Tink, what the hell good are you gonna do? But while you're here -- dust me so I can fly my ass out of here. I don't need to be standing around with a pocketful of rupees when Zelda... / Continue →

    PETA wants spring-predicting groundhog Punxsutawney Phil replaced with by a robotic version. I can see it now: Well, did he see his shadow? I don't know, but he did kill 14,000 bystanders. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it's unfair to keep the animal in ... / Continue →

    J.D. Salinger, best known as the reclusive writer of 'The Catcher In The Rye' and being one of my favorite authors, has passed away at 91. I took the liberty of including some of my favorite quotes from Catcher here, but I highly highly HIGHLY encourage you all to take the tim... / Continue →

    People can tell by your social awkwardness, you don't need a certificate. Also, isn't selling $1 virgin diplomas to people who "feel like a virgin, or want to be a virgin again" encouraging deception? And deception, as we all know, is the mantra of the Decepticons. Don't get... / Continue →

    Castrol, best known for keeping my ride lubed (double entendre!), went and created a robot to kick the everliving shit out of a soccer ball? Why? Cause they're a bunch of jerks. Is there no end to the effort a company will expend on a promotional stunt? Deemed unsafe for tra... / Continue →

    These are two dueling dinos as imagined by deviantARTist IsisMasshiro. As you might be able to tell, it looks less like an epic dino-fight and more like a moderate catfight. Which, true story, two women got into at the bar last weekend. Now I'm not saying I was encouraging t... / Continue →

    Generally isn't a good idea. UNLESS YOU'RE TRYING TO MEET THE AWESOMEST WOMEN IN THE WORLD! Now I know what you're thinking, and no, this isn't me. I don't live in Alaska and I've been petitioning Craigslist for 'Man Seeking Dino' listings for years now (bigots!). So, which... / Continue →

    China recently decided to change the name of the famous 'Southern Sky Column' in Zhangjiajie, Hunan province to 'Avatar Hallelujah Mountain' in order to honor James Cameron's blue kitteh blockbuster garner some tourism. Clever, China, clever. Avatar has become the most popula... / Continue →

    This is Mario's class schedule for his current semester at Nintendo University. As you can see, he's taking some pretty cakewalk courses and should probably just skip them to get high in the dorm and talk to girls on AIM trying to score dates. Haha, do I know college or what?... / Continue →

    This is a shot of one of the light-bikes from the new 'Tron Legacy'. I'm gonna go ahead and lay claim to it. There, it's mine now. Created by toymaker Spin Master to help promote the movie (which doesn't come out for another 11 months, by the way), it looks pretty awesome.... / Continue →

    This short dino ballet animation is arguably the most erotic thing I've seen since that time I watched myself lick an actual fossilized t-rex bone in the mirror (I ran my tongue up and down all slow and seductively while winking at myself). Speaking of which, where is that bon... / Continue →

    Finally, we can all sleep at night having seen Apple's new tablet, the iPad. That's right, iPad (after taking a hint from the old Mad TV sketch). The first-gen tablet is 0.5 inches thin, 1.5 lbs, and has a 9.7" multi-touch screen. It will be powered by Apple's own 1GHz A4 ch... / Continue →

    This is part of a chart comparing the traits of various vampires. As you can see, there's little to no consistency between vampire franchises. This is the appearances chart, but if you go to Wikipedia they also have comparisons of weaknesses, supernatural powers, reproduction... / Continue →

    For those of you that don't watch the BBC's Top Gear, you're missing out. And for those of you that do -- let me know when so I can come over and pound some brewhahas and subsequently puke and pass out in your laundry room. Yeah, I'm an awesome guest. BBC Top Gear's enigmati... / Continue →

    This is a taxidermied mouse with a flash drive wedged up its ass. It reminds me spying days when I made off with a bunch of top secret files from the Pentagon. Except that wasn't a flash drive, it was a stack of 5¼-inch floppies. And let me tell you: based on the way I was... / Continue →

    Radical is the opposite of what I was thinking. A cowbot riding a velociraptor around like a common horse? It's enough to make me sick to my stomach. Speaking of which: mixing soymilk and OJ doesn't make an Orange Julius. But it does make you throw up in your mouth a little... / Continue →

    This is today's woot.shirt. It's Admiral Ackbar stuck in a Chinese finger trap. Unfortunately, they already sold out of the first run of (3,000) tees before I woke up this morning. But fear not, the shirt will most definitely be available again next week during The Reckoning... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery from College Humor that reimagines video games named what people say the most while playing them. They're pretty accurate. But, for your reading pleasure, I've compiled a list of some of my personal faves. 1. MOOOOOOOM -- I Need Another Juice Box! 2.... / Continue →

    This is a child dressed as a helmet-less Darth Vader. Why any parent would subject their child to this sort of cruelty is beyond me. One look at himself in the mirror and that poor bastard is scarred for life. So creepy. I think I speak for us all when I say closing your ey... / Continue →

    LG's Serie 1 Retro Classic TV doesn't just look like an old CRT television, it is an old CRT television. Except they're new. Old technology, new product. It's confusing, I know! The set features a 14-inch diagonal screen, complete with rabbit-ear antennae and chrome legs. I... / Continue →

    Looks like the larger of the two just had a fairly significant meal as well. Just sayin', give it a couple hours and she'll only be a 246 pounder. Also, I highly don't recommend it but if you look hard enough I think you can make out their vaginas. So, yeah -- have fun with ... / Continue →

    This is a little compilation of Zelda medleys from The Ocarina of Time being played by Joe Marvelly. Mostly on the guitar and Stylophone, but there's a little drum action thrown in for good measure. And speaking of good measures: did you know each box of Raisin Bran is packed... / Continue →

    So Apple's gonna announce their tablet tomorrow. That's exciting. And these are allegedly a couple leaked pictures of the thing a whole day early. Boners all around! And, because I love you, I'll post real pictures tomorrow if you're like following this sort of thing. But,... / Continue →

    Similar in concept to the steering wheel desk, the $15 Performance Book Caddy is chock-full of design win. You just mount it to your bike's handlebars, and, within minutes, crash into the back of a parked car and break bones. Fun! Trying to find time to catch up on your read... / Continue →

    I'm not familiar with South Korean girl band Wonder Girls, but, to my credit, I stopped listening to new music in the 90's. But maybe you have. Maybe you shake your ass to it before bed at night with just your underwear on. That's cool. Regardless, this is a video of a bunc... / Continue →

    I'm not really sure if the Sharky Tea Infuser is a real product or just conceptual, but you have to admit: it's a great idea. Or, it would be if it looked like a human body with a bite out of it instead of a shark fin. Oh, and your tea was always blood red. Yep, yep, yep, gr... / Continue →

    I know I reported last year that July 21st, 1984 was the date of the first US robot killing, but, well, maybe that was wrong. Or maybe this one's wrong. But whatever the case, I'm always right. Always. 1979: A 25-year-old Ford Motor assembly line worker is killed on the job... / Continue →

    The BBC will be airing the appropriately titled 'Chimpcam' on BBC Two at 2000GMT on Wednesday January, 27th, during the 'Natural World' show. It was shot entirely by chimps at the Edinburgh Zoo toting video cameras around their enclosures. Amazingly, none of them made sex vid... / Continue →

    Upset that devil worshiping is traditionally a boys-only game? Well fret not, ladies, cause now there's a Ouija board just for you! It's pink! Girls love pink! Plus shoes! It has always been mysterious. It has always been mystifying. And now the OUIJA Board is just for y... / Continue →

    Any minute now I expect the Four Unicornmen of the Apocalypse to come riding out of that hole on a rainbow and start royally f***ing this world up. Just sayin', an apocalyptic portal just opened in in Porto, Portugal -- grammatical coincidence OR SURE SIGN OF IMPENDING DOOM?! ... / Continue →

    Now I'm not saying you should go out and rob a bank, but I am saying I have a birthday coming up in seven months and money is always the right size. Interpret as you will (at least get a payday loan, cheapskate). Made by Sugarcoatidli3z, the same creator as this Pikachu ski m... / Continue →

    Slow down when you read the titles, it's not what it sounds like. This a reproduction of Pee-wee's Clockey, from the hit children's (and high 20-something's) television show 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse'. I want the talking chair! *wikipedia-ing* Chairry! I want Chairry! Have the... / Continue →

    What in the hell is that? I mean, besides the most dangerous looking shark-inspired edged weapon I've ever seen? Good God. I'd hate to trip and fall on that. Or you. Cause then it'd probably look like we were doing it. Awkward. HEY -- I felt that! You thrusted. Shark K... / Continue →

    This is a screenshot of the International Jurassic Park Erotic Fan-Fiction Writer's Association website. The site itself looks like it was made by a 6th grader for a middle school computer class, but don't let the look fool you: it's jam-packed with some of the steamiest sex s... / Continue →
