    Did I really get drunk at lunch and spend the last two hours asleep on the john? You know I did! And since my brain never recovered from the nap (plus my legs fell asleep and I beat my face on the towel bar standing up), here's a little burlesque cosplay action to end the wee... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the CoServ Electric headquarters in Corinth, Texas where some early-morning condensation has revealed an alien hideout. Why aliens would decide to set up shop there is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with recharging their spaceships. At any r... / Continue →

    This pulsating 'umbilical' iPhone charger was designed by Mio I-zawa as an experiment in just how disgusting a person can make a cell phone charger. Nice try, Mio, but a REAL disgusting charger would ooze pus and smell like an orc's o-ring (they wipe with dead animals). Oh I'... / Continue →

    Unhear It is a website that plays random-ass remixes to help get the song that's stuck in your head unstuck. Granted it's just replacing it with another, but still. Maybe it'll be better than ♫ the song that never ends -- yes it goes on and on my friend, some people staa... / Continue →

    I dunno, that looks less like a street and more like stepping in a bunch of penguin shit just waiting to happen. Cute 'lil fellas though. Anyway, Google Street Views of Antarctica: it's happened. Next up: the moon. I get to drive the rover! " But GW -- haven't you been dri... / Continue →

    This is an old-ass video of the magic that happens when you drop a gummi bear into potassium chlorate. Now we could talk about the science behind the magic but then it would become all science-y and less magical and I prefer magic (although I have played Yu-Gi-Oh). Also, I'm s... / Continue →

    This is a sculpture of actor Kevin Bacon made out of bacon. Personally, I think it looks more like Conan O'Bacon, but what do I know besides everything including the secrets to time travel AND blemish free skin? Did I mention Kevin Baconface here is for sale on eBay? Because... / Continue →

    Facebook just announced they're jacking up the maximum size of photos you can upload from 720 pixels to 2048. What does this mean? It means your photos can now be 8x as large. Geez, it's not rocket surgery. I had to get my mom to sign me into AOL this morning and even I und... / Continue →

    If you haven't heard already, Las Vegas is a dangerous place. And not just because you can lose your life savings and contract something from a prosty in the same weekend, but that shit happened to a couple of my friends and now I won't drink after them. Except alcohol. That... / Continue →

    I know it looks Photoshopped to high hell, but this is an actual photograph of a plane trying its damnedest to eclipse the moon. It reminds me of the scene in the original Batman when the Batwing eclipses the moon, except less badass because that one formed the Bat-signal and ... / Continue →

    Carved leaf art is exactly what it sounds like: actual leaves carved into art. Or -- OR -- actual art carved into leaves. Either way, my hands are far too shaky to ever attempt anything like this. And that's not just my drinking problem talking, although of course it is beca... / Continue →

    Note: Higher-res shot HERE. What do you do if you grew up during the Great Depression and were always too poor to own a Radio Flyer? Wait till you're like a hundred and then build one out of a truck! But does it always have to be towed? Fred Keller and Judy Foster worked on... / Continue →

    Haha, who just shaved their dog's genitals and gave him a bath in-between posts? This guy! Taking a clue from the guy who built a fully functional calculator in Little Big Planet, Youtube user theinternetftw is in the process of building an entire 16-bit computer in Minecraft... / Continue →

    Note: Jump probably NSFW due to fake alien-vaj. To coincide with the release of Hustler's Avatar pr0n parody, Fleshlight is making an "alien" version of their famous male sex-toy. "Honey -- I think the blue flashlight in the tool chest next to your Neytiri poster is out of ba... / Continue →

    Listen bro, nothing's 100%. There are only two things in life that are given and that's regret and depression. Because one time I studied for an exam so hard I KNEW I was gonna get a 100%. You know what I got? A f***ing 0. I kept snoozing my alarm and never left the dorm. ... / Continue →

    Some company called Fiberglass Freaks (I'm more of an Asbestos Freak myself) is manufacturing officially licensed replicas of the 1966 Batmobile Adam West used to drive when he wasn't too busy pretending to climb building exteriors. And all for $150K! Move over, that Ferrari ... / Continue →

    Iran a mile in under six minutes once, I'm just sayin'. And I didn't need no flying boat with guns to do it either, just a handful of amphetamines. Kidding, I would have had a heart attack. And not the good kind where all your organs wear cowboy & Indian costumes and duke it... / Continue →

    Remember when Hustler announced they were making a 3-D parody of Avatar and it was gonna be the company's most costly production to date? Well it looks like the number to beat was $200, because this thing looks like a giant Na'vi turd. And not a golden one like that goose in ... / Continue →

    The BOND (Built of Notorious Deterrents) bike was designed and crafted by Yannick Read to help bring awareness to green transportation and sell bicycle insurance at the same time. It has several features that would make even 007 consider going green except not really because w... / Continue →

    Because the entire Monkey Island franchise will always hold a very special place in my heart (right next to Cool Ranch Doritos and watching people hurt themselves), I have a soft spot for Guybrush Threepwood. So yeah, it was just announced he'll be an unlockable character in T... / Continue →

    Seen here about to send some wood blocks to meet their maker, Raytheon's XOS exoskeletal suit has been upgraded (XOS 2, baby!), and now requires 50% less energy to operate than the original. Other improvement? It's lighter and faster. *yawn* Pretty weak improvements. I woul... / Continue →

    Nintendogs is a Nintendo DS game intended for children whose parents won't get them a real dog. Unfortunately, the game is NOT intended for children who have friends who have real dogs that will bite your lip off if they hear your DS barking. And you wonder why I'm afraid to ... / Continue →

    Because George Lucas' dingleberrydom knows no bounds, it was just announced the entire Star Wars hexlogy will be stereoed into 3-D and look worse than that picture I used. Sonofabitch. There are few movies that lend themselves more perfectly to 3D; from the Death Star trench ... / Continue →

    This is a Wolverine cake. I know it's kind of hard to tell because the claws are pointed directly at you and made out of aluminum foil, but that's what it is. And there's a different one after the jump with foam claws. Neither one is really the best thing I've ever seen, but... / Continue →

    Gimme is a panhandling robot designed and built by artist Chris Eckert. Basically he follows you around with that googly eye of his and shakes his money-cup at you until you 1) make a donation or 2) kick him over, douse him in gasoline and watch that ass burn its way back to S... / Continue →

    Remember the guy who couldn't even build a fireplace in Minecraft without burning his entire house down? Hey McFly, YOU BOJO -- THOSE BOARDS DON'T WORK ON WATER! Well some other guy went and spent over a year making a 1:1 scale model of the Starship Enterprise. There's a vid... / Continue →

    I always pinned Kirby for one of those fatties that can't even find his dork in the shower. Little did I know! Also, I love the artists that design things like this and then pretend they didn't know. Kind of like the Disney animators who sneak a phallus in every chance they ... / Continue →

    DeviantARTist Kalapusa, best known for his Piranha Plant garden sculpture, is back at it, this time with a lifelike Pac-Man sculpture. As you can see, Pac isn't nearly as adorable when rendered in more than 8-bits, which is exactly why you should never make love to Ms. Pac-Man... / Continue →

    We've already seen ninja-star and joystick coathooks, so why not $15 knife coathooks? Yes, why not knives? "Because they promote violence?" Um, no, stop being stupid. I'm not even allowed near safety-scissors and I'm still one of the most violent people I know. Seriously, ... / Continue →

    Note: Two super high-res shots HERE (full back) and HERE (closeup). I know some of you don't care because you can't appreciate the finer more permanent things in life, but I'm obsessed with Avatar tattoo guy (you Albertans must really be proud!). And not just because of his e... / Continue →

    Note: Probably NSFW video is after the jump because I don't want any crying robot babies popping out and slopping on the front page. This is a video of a robotic vagina giving birth complete with the most terrifying sounds I've ever heard in my 29 years of existence (not even ... / Continue →

    Sorry folks, I already submitted my application and I'm just waiting for the callback. However -- I will consider you for my cabinet if you can provide me with warm, clean urine on an as-needed basis. *reading article* Wait a minute -- they already chose somebody?! But I hav... / Continue →

    So the U.S. government wants all modern methods of communication wire-tap compliant so they can win both the wars on terror AND teens trying to buy weed. Oh -- looks like it's time to break out the ol' flint and blanket, folks. I'M TALKIN' SMOKE SIGNALS, YO! The Obama admini... / Continue →

    This is some World of Warcraft player's giant Horde (horde? you're not hording anything but chips and soda!) inspired tattoo. It's kind of hard wrapping your head around the idea that there might actually be some real-life badasses out there playing Warcraft, but that's becau... / Continue →

    I'm not saying I've never eaten a mouse before but that's because I have and I'm not proud about it. But I would still cry myself to sleep every night if I was making a sandwich and found a dead one at the bottom of the loaf. But it happened, oh, it happened. Just not to me,... / Continue →

    If there's one thing you should never let a robot near, it's your genitals. Followed by your head. Your children are third. But this post is all about #2. And I'm not talkin' dookie, although I may have let a little slip pretending I was in that chair. Panasonic's hair-was... / Continue →

    Metroids, best known for attaching themselves to your head and trying to suck your life-force out like an ex, are apparently real. Finally, an excuse to call Samus that doesn't involve "peepin' that sessy ass". Four thousand feet beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean, wate... / Continue →

    Some guy went and built a giant R2-D2 model that you can climb in and drive around. Why? Because it's awesome and gave him an excuse to hide in the garage away from the wife and kids for a bit. There's a video of him cruising around the driveway after the jump, which is wort... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader and photographer Douglas Saunders decided to see what would happen if he took a picture with his iPhone 4 through the eyepiece of his uncle's telescope. This is the resulting image. Pretty impressive, huh? I thought so. So impressive, in fact, I was inspir... / Continue →

    Chris Haines (not to be confused with pedo-buster Chris Hansen) designed this 'Turn Me On' power switch. It turns lights on and off not by the flick of a finger, but by the blow of an ear. How erotic! Now I know what you're thinking, "but GW -- wouldn't it be easier to find ... / Continue →

    Proving that you should never dip your pen in company ink, Jim Heselden died over the weekend after riding a Segway off a cliff and into a river. Jim had purchased the Segway company from inventor Dean Kamen last year. I suspect very foul play. Police said a witness had repo... / Continue →

    Aaaaand we're back. You know what I love about Mondays? Not a single f***ing thing. But that's neither here nor back in bed where I belong, according to the 1993 piece of shit futuristic classic Demolition Man, the last murder in Los Angeles took place this past Saturday, Se... / Continue →
