    The Air Force has been tooting their own horn after recently shooting down a ballistic missile with a plane-mounted laser-pewer. That's cool, but I've been able to do the same thing for years with my eyeballs. OH -- OH -- DON'T MAKE ME TAKE OFF THESE OAKLEYS! The plane uses ... / Continue →

    I've known about the Triceracopter for awhile because it was available last year, but I didn't want to tell you about it while I attempted to secure it for myself. Unfortunately even my most threatening phone calls didn't work, so here it is. Now maybe you can help me steal i... / Continue →

    I told myself a while ago I wouldn't post any Awkward (NSFW) Family Photos but, like everything I tell myself, it turned out to be a lie. Depressing, I know. It's like the time I promised myself I'd stop being the world's greatest lover, and now look at me -- still going str... / Continue →

    As a man who has never, and probably will never, see a woman's personals, I can't say one way or the other if the G-Point (instead of spot, get it?) mouse actually does look like a female's nether-region when viewed from above. I do know it looks like a futuristic pool float f... / Continue →

    This is a Google Street View shot from Finland of a guy playing shake the dice by himself in his backyard. I think there might be a better shot of it out there somewhere (why would you want that?) but it looks like it's already been removed from Google Maps. I think this is t... / Continue →

    OMG Laser Guns Pew Pew Pew is a website featuring a space squirrel with a laser gun. When you click he shoots a laser beam and makes a noise. I can't say it's a genuine "pew", but I still give it a B for better than the sound of a car alarm. Also, you may be wondering if OMG... / Continue →

    I know that was probably false advertising, but I'm a jerk and you already knew that. Dickery aside, allegedly the drawing came first and the cosplayers decided to re-enact it. Chest-ily. Which, I think we can all agree, is the best way to reenact anything. *ahem* General L... / Continue →

    This is a conceptual Red Bull motorcycle as designed by Barrend Massow Hemmes. Riding it makes you look like you're boning a giant red bull from behind, which, I suspect, is the reason the internal combustion engine was invented in the first place. Is there anything sexier? ... / Continue →
