    I remember seeing this video (the original Japanese commercial for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past) a long time ago, and you're probably gonna yell at me because you sent it to me years ago, but you know what? I'm not gonna let it get to me. You can't make me feel bad.... / Continue →

    Sure the Superbowl has come and gone, but the Saints beat the shit out of the Colts, did they not? WHO DAT?! It's me, silly -- the GW! That masterpiece of culinary greatness (and bacon) is called the Bacon Lombardi Trophy, or Bacombardi Trophy for short, and thanks to a grea... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy carving the original Big Daddy prototype out of wood. With a chainsaw. Which brings up an interesting question: how do you carve Subject Delta out of a tree? Shave away everything that doesn't look like a Big Daddy. HAHA! God I slay me. Youtube T... / Continue →

    This is 15-year old Sven Junga's (awesome name!) Stargate diorama, including a LEGO Daedalus from Stargate Atlantis. It is most impressive, as are the other LEGO models in his Flickr gallery. And he's only 15. I was still wearing Velcro shoes and licking the bus window! Hit... / Continue →

    Helicopters are loud as shit and a lot of times I have to cover my ears with my hands on the helipad waiting for my pilot to bring the bird down. It gets annoying, especially when you've got two briefcases full of gold bullion handcuffed to your wrists, WHICH I ALWAYS DO. Hel... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video AFTER THE JUMP is NSFW due to thong. I told you it was a special bonus -- AND I DON'T LIE! This is a video of Robin Williams on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' talking about getting "OWNED" by 10 year-olds playing Call of Duty and naming his daughter after Princess... / Continue →

    Lara Croft (seen here) is best known for raiding tombs and being the relic hunting alter-ego of Angelina Jolie. And now, the town of her origin is honoring her with a road, Lara Croft Way. Hey, that's cool, but I've had a road named after me for years. GW Parkway, anybody? ... / Continue →

    Tinysaurs are little dinosaur models created by artist Kelly Farrell. They're cute as hell and you better believe I'm gonna catch 'em all. Then lacquer them and carry them around in my pocket. ZOMG -- I hope they nibble holes in my underwear! Each one is laser cut out of oa... / Continue →

    This is a stunning 30,000 piece LEGO replica of the Star Wars Droid Control Ship. It took builder Paul Yperman two years and a small fortune in LEGO bricks to construct. However, it did not take a pyrotechnics license. Boooooooooooooooo!! FIREWORKS SHIP NEEDS MORE FIREWORKS... / Continue →

    NASA, in a covert attempt to mine Martian cheese, wants to send scientists to the moon in the form of avatars, just like in the movie by the same! (Avatar, not Martian cheese -- although that shit has blockbuster written all over it too). NASA can put humanoids on the Moon in... / Continue →

    Solid Alliance's 'Crazy Earphones' are just that: f***ing crazy. They come in styles like "mushroom", "katana through your head", "arrow through your head" and "extra ears" and will set you back around $22 a set. But what's $22 for a pair of poor quality ear-buds that'll make... / Continue →

    Want to learn more about Google? Then peep the rest of this informational graphic, son, it's all about that search bitch! Say, who knew Google did more than run a query page and drive around taking pictures? I mean besides me because I basically built their business model ou... / Continue →

    Robot Unicorn Attack is a Flash game from Adult Swim in which you control a robot unicorn in a quest to make its dreams come true (collect fairies and charge through giant stars?). It's highly addictive, and not just because of the soundtrack, although I dare you to come up wi... / Continue →

    Super hi-res shot HERE. This is an "untooned" version of Buzz Lightyear by CG artist Raoni Nery. Well, what do you think -- is this what Buzz would look like if he were real? Your guess is as good as mine. Except not at all because I'm a notoriously good guesser. Just sayi... / Continue →

    I love LEGO. I LOOOOVE dinosaurs. But I hate, I hate, I HATE Peter Pan robots. So I dunno how I feel about ol' Robo-Rex here. Sure he's got a pretty mouth, but he's also a robot. I've got a sneaking suspicion the moment you think you're safe and your dorm roommate is aslee... / Continue →
  • February 25, 2010
    NOTE: You might want to stop watching at 1:20 before she turns around. This is a chick with ass for days playing some racing game on XBox 360. First one to name the game in the comments obviously missed the point of this post. Also, you think she shakes her ass around for th... / Continue →

    Honey, have you seen my lightsaber USB drive? Haha, what do you mean it's in your panty drawer? These USB lightsabers come in red and green, light up when you plug them in and will set you back $20 for 1GB of storage. Amazingly, they're actual Lucasfilm licensed products fro... / Continue →

    Full-size version of the whole poster HERE, or hit the jump to see it in stunning 450px quality. Robots: they suck and they're going to kill us all. And this informational graphic proves it. I think. Granted I didn't bother reading it, but that's because I already know ever... / Continue →

    Larger, legible version of the poster HERE. Ever since its infancy, piracy has always been awesome. There's treasure, tropical locales, wenches, weapons, cool costumes -- all that good stuff. Plus, NO ANNOYING UNSKIPPABLE DVD SCENES. Suck it, the man. YAAAAARR!! -- CAPTAIN... / Continue →

    'The Poetry of Reality' is the latest in the Symphony of Science series (other four videos HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) and features an all star cast of brainiacs. Including, and virtually limited to: Michael Shermer, Jacob Bronowski, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Daw... / Continue →

    NOTE: Jump is NSFW due to glass-cutting nipplery. This is a little series of modeling shots taken by Model Mayhem user iFeminine (link is NSFW!). It's LEGO minifigs mining for milk. Or...something. All I know is there are nipples, a cannon and an octopus involved, arguably ... / Continue →

    Are you richer than God? Are you considering the purchase of an Aston Martin Rapide? If so, please hire me -- I'll do anything. Sexual favors excluded. Sexual flavors, okay. Mmmm, this tastes like lube! The AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder heralds the second generation of the re... / Continue →

    The Ouroborus Domino Machine was created by Karl Lautman and knocks over and picks up dominoes all by itself -- with magic! It's really therapeutic to see. Like watching two children beat each other in the head with plastic bats. But with less cheering and betting. Ouroboru... / Continue →
  • February 25, 2010
    Because gaming is everyone's favorite extracurricular activity, Jostens has decided to include a "gamer" option on their class rings. That's cool -- if you don't mind getting beat up by all the football players. Kidding, they game too! Don't you? Don't you, you stupid meath... / Continue →

    This $40 backpack from Hot Topic (I know, I secretly love that place too!) holds shit and makes you look like a ninja turtle. What more could you ask for from a bookbag? Jesus, it's not gonna do your math homework. This backpack is in the shape of a half-shell and includes f... / Continue →
  • February 24, 2010
    NOTE: Video is NSFW due to anime nudity at 0:25, 0:52, 1:25, 2:39 and 3:25 -- so skip those parts. Or don't, God, you hate your job anyway. This is a cover and music video of The Vapors' classic, 'Turning Japanese' as performed by Kirsten Dunst. I thought you might be into i... / Continue →
  • February 24, 2010
    There's an eBay auction going on right now for a code that'll allow you to beta test the new Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty. Hey, that's cool. You know, I beta-tested something once. It was a goldfish. It did not survive. Fish joke! This auction is for a piece of paper th... / Continue →
  • February 24, 2010
    The logo has a subliminal character included! It's Pac-Man! Well, Pac-Man AFTER I BROKE HIS YELLOW-ASS JAW FOR EATING MY CHERRIES. I called them first, jerk! Oh, the Missus called -- she said you should eat out. I assume she meant literally, like at a restaurant, because I... / Continue →
  • February 24, 2010
    This is a $16 elemental bacon shirt. It spells 'BaCoN' through the clever placement of three periodic elements: barium, cobalt and nitrogen. And I think we can all agree: bacon would be a lot less popular if it actually were barium, cobolt and nitrogen. And not just because ... / Continue →
  • February 24, 2010
    Sure Halloween is still eight months away, but is that gonna stop you from buying a War Machine costume and trying to seduce industrial robots at the Toyota factory? Probably not. Which is exactly why you should seek professional help. Namely, me with a baseball bat. Hold s... / Continue →

    This is an Google Maps aerial shot of the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), AKA "The Boneyard", a 2,600 acre facility that serves as the final resting place for over 4,200 US aircraft (I'm gonna go steal a Warthog!). Located in Tucson, Arizona, on the... / Continue →

    This is a video of a pigeon named Henry riding the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) and exiting at his desired stop. Allegedly it's a fairly common occurrence, as Henry has pigeon and dove bitches all over Toronto. Play on, playa! (Shit on me and I'll kill you) Youtube Tha... / Continue →

    Ole Miss (The University of Mississippi) has decided to ditch its old racist slave-owning mascot Col. Rebel in exchange for something a little more PC. And now there's a student movement to elect the honorable Admiral Ackbar (quite the rebel himself) as the new figurehead of t... / Continue →

    Click HERE to view the full chart. The latest in information graphics, this one's all about your favorite subject: comics sweater puppets. Say, did you know the average female nipple is 3/8" long when erect? I didn't. Cause I've definitely seen some outliers! I'm looking a... / Continue →

    This is a slab of bacon. In cake form. I know, I thought it was eel too. Anyway, I'm gonna have to admit I'd have a hard time driving that into me. Mostly because there's no steering wheel or pedals! *zing!* How about airline food, amirite? First time I've ever had to us... / Continue →
  • February 23, 2010
    This is College Humor's take on those 'Windows 7 Was My Idea' commercials. My take is fast-forward the DVR, but that's just me and I'm pretty much an advertising expert. Microsoft: hire me, I'll hook you up. And not just with good drugs either ALTHOUGH I DO KNOW PEOPLE IF TH... / Continue →

    Casttoos are tattoos for casts. The company makes a number of different standard designs (flames, tribal stuff, etc), but the coolest available is a custom version of your actual brokeback bones. You just email the company a scan of your x-ray, and they send you a waterproof ... / Continue →

    A copy of Action Comics #1, best known for featuring the first appearance of Superman, recently sold for a staggering $1 million at auction. That's one rich old virgin! Kidding -- kidding -- hookers count. They said it couldn't be done. They said that no comic book--no matte... / Continue →

    This is a video of an OU physics professor freezing and shattering a laptop with liquid nitrogen to remind students not to bring them to class. It was pretty effective. Not as effective as the time Mr. Wizard shattered a giant bouncy ball with liquid nitrogen, but this guy is... / Continue →
  • February 23, 2010
    Let's face it, golf courses aren't as safe as they used to be. So I'll be damned if I'm cruising around the links in an unprotected buggy. Thankfully, now there's the $45K Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart (Atac). *thwack* Fore! GO GO GO!! It weighs just under half a tonne, has ... / Continue →
  • February 23, 2010
    I know for a fact I used to eat Nintendo Cereal System growing up because I still have some Link bits stuck to the roof of my mouth. But had I known I could pawn unopened boxes of the deliciousness on eBay in 2010 for $200, I might have stockpiled the stuff (or at least saved ... / Continue →
  • February 23, 2010
    Granted we've seen LEGO Mindstorm sets people have built to solve Rubik's Cubes in the past, but never anything that moves with the speed and dexterity as CubeStorm CubeStorm Cubestorm. Whoa, nice echo effect. Kidding, I'm hiding in the closet (my mom's trying to drag me to a... / Continue →
  • February 23, 2010
    The Dalai Lama has joined Twitter. Or, more than likely, somebody officially representing the Dalai Lama is updating Twitter on his behalf. Still, that's more impressive than some other religious figures. *ahem* Benedict. Anyway, now I'm just going to copy/paste the best Da... / Continue →

    Looking for the perfect garden sculpture to accentuate your backyard? Well look no further, my dino-loving friends, because TOSCANO Designs has you covered, thanks to this Jurassic-Sized T-Rex Statue. "GW, DIIIIIIIINNER TIME!" CAN'T YOU SEE I'M BUSY, GOD! At 22 feet long an... / Continue →

    This is 'Crawler Town', a rolling LEGO city built by Flickr user and skilled LEGOlier Dave DeGobbi. And, like Rome, it wasn't built in a day. OR SO THE HISTORY BOOKS SAY. They also don't mention alien subcontractors, but I have my doubts. Crawler town roams the barren was... / Continue →
  • February 22, 2010
    NOTE: Dirty word at 0:50. This is a six minute video about Chat Roulette that Geekologie Readers Alex & Brett made after being inspired by my hard-hitting journalism on the same subject. I thought the most interesting part was the fact that a cute girl that doesn't say or do ... / Continue →

    The $60 All-In-One chair is the very legitimate lovechild of a portable cooler and folding beach chair. I don't know about it truly being "all-in-one" because it doesn't look motorized and I don't see an iPod dock or speakers, but maybe they're hidden in the arm rests or somet... / Continue →
  • February 22, 2010
    How many people do you think it would take to set the record for most people dressed as Star Trek characters in the same place at once? I guessed 1,000 because I figured that a lot of people cosplayed at Trekkie conventions and what have you, but apparently not, or at least th... / Continue →

    This is an adorable little video of what baking cookies would be like if it were anything similar to running Photoshop. Unfortunately, it's not. Which is how I managed to burn my old house down. Kidding, KIDDING -- I was hoping to catch the ex-wife while she was sleeping. S... / Continue →

    Who's Your Daddy (that's easy, I am) Real Bacon Homemade Potato Chips ($5) are exactly what they sound like: deliciousness incarnate. Bet you can't eat just one (bag) you glutton you. We start with the best quality potatoes and add a proprietary blend of some extra-bacony goo... / Continue →
  • February 22, 2010
    Poopsenders.com is a service that allows you to send bags of animal feces to people you don't like. I assume it was created by a zoo employee because it's not just cow dung that's available, you can also opt for elephant and gorilla scat in quart and gallon sizes ($13-$24). I... / Continue →

    NOTE: Full-res shot HERE because you can't see a damn thing in this one. Don't even lie, your eyes aren't that good. The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the ocean and extends at least 7 miles below sea level. That's deep. So deep nothing but my penis can reach the bot... / Continue →

    As many of you may know, I'm a master of the crane game (picture proof of some of my winnings after the jump -- even the bullwhip), so I have no interest in Robo Catcher. Robo Catcher is an arcade prize game in which you control a little robot. The goal is to pick up a (crump... / Continue →

    NOTE: Full-res pic HERE. Sure we've already seen some zombified Disney princesses, but what about the dudes? Yes, what about the dudes? To answer that question, here's a group of mixed nuts. Well, what do you think? I think Cinderella and Belle might actually BE zombies, t... / Continue →

    This is a Triforce latte (liquid courage, power and wisdom) that deviantARTist Monk Drew made his brother for his birthday. Now I'm not saying a coffee-drink is a pretty weak-ass present, but my brother did get me Carl Sagan's Cosmos on DVD for Christmas. Just sayin' -- WHAT ... / Continue →

    Borg cupcakes: that's what these are. Now I don't know too much about the Borgs except they've always scared the everliving crap out of me (literally, ask the popcorn sweeper in theater 11 after the 4:20 showing of First Contact back in '96), but it looks like two of them have... / Continue →

    I've Chatrouletted long enough to know nothing good is gonna come out of it. That was six seconds. Just long enough to try to take a reasonable screenshot while I was writing a post about it, seeing a man's penis, and marking the website as unsafe in my internet browser. Any... / Continue →

    This is an interview with Nathan Sharratt, who went and made a ridiculously amazing Big Sister costume (not to be confused with Harrison Krix's Big Daddy getup) from Bioshock 2. It is most impressive and I can say without a doubt that I wouldn't want to meet that in a dark Rap... / Continue →
