    This is a video of two enema bags in an airplane doing a nosedive so the dog in the back experiences weightlessness. I can't tell if he liked it or not, but my guess is no. Dogs, as a rule, like their feet on the ground and their tongues on their privates. And can you blame ... / Continue →

    Remember artist Andrew Zubko's rendition of 'Batman Stabbing A Shark With A Lightsaber'? I know, it belongs in a museum! Well Andrew was asked to create a cover for The Portland Mercury using reader submitted elements, and this is the result: 'An Arguably Pregnant Betty White... / Continue →

    NOTE: Immensely homoerotic commercial is after the jump. I've been watching it on repeat. Remember the Shake Weight, the only piece of exercise equipment than can guarantee you'll be able to milk a bull 4x faster with only six minutes of use a day? Well originally it was only ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the sun's most violent eruption in 15 years (possibly because that comet didn't agree with him), which happened just a few days ago on April 12th and 13th. Amazingly, we all didn't die. Well at least I didn't, I haven't actually left the apartment since M... / Continue →

    Apparently there's a growing trend in Japan of guys wearing girl's skirts. And, more than likely, Pokémon panties. Oh did I say Pokémon? Because I meant Hello Kitty. Skirts are not only for girls any more in Japan. There are also boys that wear "Skirts" in trendy cities s... / Continue →

    This is a screenshot Geekologie Reader (and all around handsome devil) Beau sent me from his iPod Touch of what is arguably the best written and hardest hitting piece of journalism USA Today has ever produced. Amirite or amirite? jkl;kjl;;lkjjkl;jkl; Flickr Thanks Beau, and... / Continue →

    I don't know what it is about this guy, but I really wanna throw a handful of change at him. Except not actual change, just a handful of washers. Then while Luke Panhandler there is scurrying around picking them up I'll steal his lightsaber. Well, provided he hasn't already ... / Continue →
  • April 16, 2010
    This is a sculpture of Sauron as imagined by artist Bob Basset. Which, yikes. You remember how scary that mother looked in all the Lord of the Ring movies? I don't, my mom had to cover my eyes every time they showed him because she said it was too scary for me. Also, wheneve... / Continue →

    For those of you who haven't heard because you live under rocks or in the middle of haystacks, Adobe dropped a new version of Photoshop earlier this week. And one of the big features it's hocking is a new "content-aware" filter that lets you select and delete objects out of a ... / Continue →

    Because rollerbladez aren't cool anymore but some people still can't shake the feeling they need wheels strapped to their feet, inventor MICHAEEEEEL JEEEEEENKINS! invented Chariot Skates. What are Chariot Skates? F***ing ridiculous looking for one. Costing up to $11,000 for ... / Continue →
  • April 16, 2010
    Remember Star Wars Uncut, the online project in which 473 people recreated 15-second clips from Star Wars: A New Hope with cardboard costumes and/or LEGO and the world's shittiest CGI? Well the project has been completed, and there's a five minute trailer after the jump. And ... / Continue →

    I've been trying to avoid posting t-shirts lately because a lot of you think t-shirt articles are lame, but then I realized I'm a man who has to follow his heart ask his mom for a ride to the mall later, and I should do whatever I want. Plus this is a f***ing dino with lasers ... / Continue →

    This is a streaming webcam Duke Farms set up and pointed at a bald eagle's nest somewhere in central New Jersey. It counts as your daily dose of nature so feel free to not go outside until Sunday. I've been watching it for almost 20 minutes now and the two babies just lie the... / Continue →
  • April 15, 2010
    This is a little graphic that uses Zelda and some satanic property of algebra to allegedly prove that pirates = ninjas. I don't know what to make of it. I'm still kinda reeling from having my whole world turned upside-down. I feel like everything I thought I knew has been fl... / Continue →
  • April 15, 2010
    NOTE: Video is after the jump because it's just too explosive for the front page. Also, some dude yells "SHIT!" when the thing goes off so be sure to turn your speakers up loud enough for your boss to hear. This is a video of some idiot sitting in a chair atop an airbag his f... / Continue →

    Plus it takes pictures if you use a digital camera and import them from iTunes. And video chat if you use an actual computer. Problem Solving of the Day: How to print from an iPad [thedailywh.at] Thanks to Georgie Porky and seth, who are both holding out for iPuds. Oh yeah?... / Continue →

    ROFLROFLOL! I see what you did there. Of course, it would have been funnier if Wonder Woman was the one missing. Get it? Because she's a woman. And women, as you may well know, are notoriously poor drivers but will sometimes flash their hooters if you honk your horn enough... / Continue →

    Because the world would cease turning if everybody didn't find a way to cash in on the Iron Man franchise, RTC23 (that's a brand?!) is now selling Iron Man branded televisions. Tempting, but I'm holding out for a Batman model. Billed as the "Ultimate Comic Fan's TV" each set ... / Continue →

    Sandwich cakes are cakes that look like sandwiches thanks to Fred's Cakewich baking pan. The silicon batter receptacle costs $23 and is probably a waste of money if you have any knife skills whatsoever. Unfortunately, you and I both know your mommy doesn't let you play with k... / Continue →

    Want to survive the apocalypse? I don't. I want to be the first one to go. But if you're hellbent on crawling out of a bunker 20 years from now and trying to mate with freaky, mutant animals, have at it. Hey, it only costs $10 million to buy into the Vivos apocalyptic bunke... / Continue →

    With the $2,600 Little Tykes Young Explorer work station, that's how. It's basically a glorified cubicle, for kids. Because childhoods are overrated anyways. Furniture features: * Flat desk area * Left and Right built-in mouse pads * Bench seat that fits tw... / Continue →

    This is some stationery designed for 13th Street, an NBC-Universal owned crime and horror channel. It's done up in a very tasteful zombie motif, like you'd expect from your grandmother's kitchen wallpaper. You can't really appreciate it this small though, so you're gonna need... / Continue →
  • April 14, 2010
    NOTE: Video is after the jump because it's too shy to hang out on the front page with all you perverts staring at it. This is a video of a cat testing out the new iPad. And from the look of things, he really seems to be enjoying himself. But is that enough to make the iPad w... / Continue →
  • April 14, 2010
    Apparently over 7,500 online shoppers unknowingly signed their souls over to British video game retailer Gamestation because nobody takes the time to read the terms and conditions of a sale. WELL NO SHIT! I don't even take the time to reread Geekologie articles I've written. ... / Continue →

    SolarBeat is little website that shows the planets in our solar system orbiting the sun and making a little "ding!" every time they complete a circuit. You can mess with the tempo to alter the music, and if you speed it up all the way and sit around for like 40 years you can f... / Continue →

    Pixeltop forum member labsmansid, best known for taking this picture of the International Space Station silhouetted against the sun, took this picture of the International Space Station silhouetted against the sun (high-res shot HERE). It's similar to these earlier pics of the... / Continue →
  • April 14, 2010
    Note: Worthwhile video is after the jump because we just finished playing hopscotch. This is a viral Samsung ad for their new line of 3-D televisions voiced by a man who may or may not be Dave Attell. It explores what a bunch of artistic masterpieces actually look like in 3-D... / Continue →

    Note: Click THIS PIRATE-PINK BUTTON to see the whole graphic. Always wanted to learn more about music piracy but were afraid to Google "downloading music illegally" for fear the RIAA would track your query and then beat your gotdamn door down and drag you off to prison? Jesus... / Continue →

    Some 24-year old chick in Britain fell off her Wii Balance Board and has become a sex addict as a result of the tumble. Hello, city council? This is the president speaking. I want you to repave all the sidewalks with Wii Balance Boards, pronto. It seems that, courtesy of th... / Continue →

    Remember when you used to play dress-up as a kid? You'd raid your mom's closet for a skirt and high heels, then smear makeup all over your face and whore yourself out to all the stuffed animals in your bedroom. Good times -- no? Me neither then. That would have just been we... / Continue →

    OMG -- A UNICENTAURUS-REX! Plus it looks like he's made out of chocolate. Mmmm, mmmm, MMMM! And I, for one, am not even ashamed to admit I would ride that bitch like a Big Wheels: furiously. And straight into the neighbor's pool. Believe [todaysbigthing] Thanks to Priby, ... / Continue →
  • April 13, 2010
    Note: Video is AFTER the jump. Not before. Videos can't time travel, silly! This is a video of some guy who doesn't like stray dogs running around in front of his house. So what does he do? He goes on TV and acts like a nutcase, scaring the hell out of his wife in the proc... / Continue →

    I don't want a fancy bottle, that only drives the price of the booze up. I'm fine with plastic. As a matter of fact, one time I bought a gallon of moonshine at a gas station in Virginia that came in a re-capped milk jug. It tasted like Satan's urine but got me so crunk my vi... / Continue →
  • April 13, 2010
    Mr. Mallon used a pinhole camera sitting in his backyard to record the sun's path from June to December of last year. This is the resulting image (in negative form). Looks like, uh, I don't know what it looks like. BESIDES THE MUTHERF***ING MATRIX! You'll never take me aliv... / Continue →
  • April 13, 2010
    Bottoms Up shot glasses from design firm Fred read "DRINK" when upside-up, "DRUNK" when upside-down, and are just a bunch of squiggly lines when you're actually shitfaced. Of course, if you're actually letting a shot glass tell you how drunk you are you're probably tripping to... / Continue →

    Ever wonder if you could grow plants between the pages of a comic book? Well the answer is yes. You could do the same thing with a porno magazine too if you really wanted, although I don't even know if those exist anymore since the internet was invented. Two Kindles probably... / Continue →
  • April 13, 2010
    I love books. Mostly children's and comic books, although I have perused one of the coffee table variety because all the magazines at the doctor's office sucked. But the problem with books is this: where do you put them? Do you just stack them on the floor and use them as a ... / Continue →

    Honda, in their unending quest to weaken the human population to the point where we can't even run when they release the robots, has developed the U3-X, a personal mobility device that will allow our legs to atrophy even quicker. Nice try, Honda, but I'm writing this post from... / Continue →

    As legend has it, Saint Bernards used to carry little casks of booze while performing rescue missions in the Alps. The idea was that, when they finally came across an individual in distress, the person could booze it up, providing them with the energy and false sense of warmth... / Continue →

    One day, in the not too distant future, there won't be any more animals. I'm talking none, not even hotdogs. So one zoo is taking a proactive approach to extinction education. Namely, LEGO animals. Wait, WTF? Opened yesterday, the Philadelphia Zoo's Lego-made exhibit, call... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a man. A man in love. With Brenda. Not sure what he's gonna do if they don't work out, but I'd suggest finding another Brenda. Or Brendan. Hey -- 150 n's can't be that expensive. This Guy Loves Brenda [buzzfeed]... / Continue →

    You can never have enough gold, amirite? I am. Or pillows. They just feel so soft on my face! I've heard a woman's breasts would too, but I am neither able to confirm nor deny that at this time. Overweight men's, yes. So supple. Zhek Kromtor's "Frankenstein" setup lets him... / Continue →

    Remember standing cat? Well here he is in a Zorro costume with Tonto accompaniment on the Mexican guitar (vihuela), making him by far the cutest thing I've ever seen. You hear that, puppy suckling a pig after being orphaned by its own mother?! That's right, hand over the gol... / Continue →

    I didn't even know these things were called penny-farthings. I thought they were called those goofy-ass looking bicycles with one monster-giant wheel and one little bitch one. Of course, that's understandable given my natural Shakespearean tendencies and way with worlds. Wor... / Continue →
  • April 12, 2010
    This is a cigarette and booze coffee (internet research, baby!) combo pack spotted somewhere in Japan. You get two packs of cigarettes and 12oz of coffee for 640 yen (~$7). Who the hell's gonna smoke 40 cigarettes to one cup of coffee is beyond me, but I'm gonna go out on a l... / Continue →

    Happens to me all the time. Almost as often as impotence spoils my love life. Just sayin', you ever had to tape popsicle sticks to your pecker just to seem aroused? LOLWUT?! Tell me you're joking. Where's That F*cking Lego Piece? [gizmodo]... / Continue →

    Finally, hand grenade oil lamps. Available with gold, silver and natural finishes, each grenade will set you back $65 ($55 for natural), and possibly on fire. Alternatively, go to an army surplus store and buy a decommissioned grenade for $5-$10 and make your own. But do not... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a picture of the sun eating a comet. Of course, it could be a picture from inside a birth canal for all I know. WHICH IS EVERYTHING. Yep yep yep -- that's a vagina if I've ever seen one (I haven't is the thing). The destruction of a comet as it approached ... / Continue →
  • April 12, 2010
    Well folks, the guys over at This Is Freaking Ridiculous have done it again. As you longer-term readers may recall, last year they created the BA-K-47 to celebrate Bacon Day (uh, isn't that every day?), and this year, a Bacon AT-AT. STOMP ME IN THE MOUTH! I needed a follow u... / Continue →

    This is a little NES themed stop-motion video made using Perler beads. It's not gonna blow your socks or o-ring out (thank God), but it is cute and worth a watch. Plus somebody actually spent some serious time and effort making it. And no, it wasn't me. I did try making a s... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for a full-size version of the image for the full effect. This is a stereoscopic shot of the moon. So if you cross your eyes like you would a Magic Eye picture, you should be able to see our natural satellite in 3-D. Oooooor get frustrated and Hulk-smash you... / Continue →
