    Could you tell I was just on the road for 2.5 hours? Haha, I didn't think so! Wait, you could?! The short, unfunny posts gave it all away? Dammit. Now I feel like a maroon. I'm ugly too? Wow, talk about adding insult to injury! Somebody's coma-drinkin' tonight. So scie... / Continue →

    Okay, so it's not really beer-cooled (unlike myself). Of course that wouldn't work anyway because I would drink your computer. But enough about my chemical dependencies, seen here doing his best Red Stripe "hooray beer!" impression, Ben Lzicar went and built himself a compute... / Continue →

    Listen: I love puking in my mouth, having it spill out into the hand covering my mouth, then into the other hand at my chin, and ultimately onto the bedroom carpet and bathroom floor as much as the next normal person. That is to say, a lot. But I don't need any bacon-flavored... / Continue →

    Certainly brings new meaning to the term "headshot", amirite?! No? Oh. Seen here looking a lot less ridiculous than he's going to when he has a camera installed in the back of his head, NYU photography professor Wafaa Bilal wants a camera installed in the back of his head. ... / Continue →

    Do I even need to write anything? Just look at the pictures and figure it out, yo. I dunno -- lasers and shit, man. Alien technology. The prototype uses an ultra-short high-intensity burst of laser light to illuminate a scene. The light particles scatter and reflect off a... / Continue →

    This is the entire script for the original Star Wars (aka "the first one", aka "A New Hope") colored to resemble Darth Vader's evil (but still very handsome) visage (in a similar style to this Godfather version). It was created by Geekologie reader David Johns, easily placing ... / Continue →

    Nine-year-old Ming Li is just like any other little Chinese girl. Except she has to walk to school uphill both ways and still got run over and her hand cut off by a tractor. At the time, her arm was in such poor shape reattaching the hand was an impossibility. Thankfully, qu... / Continue →

    Wanna play laser tag but feel like toting a plastic laser gun around will get you disqualified from the LARPing competition? Fear not, Lord Laserpews, because now you can play laser tag with Harry Potter wands. ABRACADABLASTERS! *GW casts copy/paste product features* Duel... / Continue →

    Note: I don't think the video's fake, it just looks like it's being hand-filmed because somebody's taping a TV screen of security-cam footage. In soviet Russia Poland, cars park you. How many Poles does it take to park a car? Apparently more than one. Which, fun fact: I di... / Continue →

    Alternatively, "Luke, I am your fonter." God I hate myself for that. And, well, pretty much everything else I've ever done. Anyway, because some Geekologie Readers have to go home and give themselves glitterstim enemas if I don't meet their daily quota of Star Wars posts, he... / Continue →

    The 'Sand Glass' stoplight concept by Thanva Tivawong counts down the sands of time until your light turns green so you know precisely when to neutral-drop your (roommate's) car and make a speedy getaway, leaving all the blue-hairs in your (roommate's) Civic's dust to squawk ab... / Continue →

    This is a video of an alleged gamer girl eating a "Triple Meat Log" corndog made out of three XL hotdogs wrapped in cheese, wrapped in 18 slices of bacon, wrapped in ground beef, lathered in yellow cornmeal and deep-fried and served with bacon-grease mayo for a grand total of 5... / Continue →

    If you haven't heard, 17-year old Fei Lam made some connections at Foxconn (Apple's Chinese iPhone manufacturer), and was able to buy a bunch of the yet-unreleased white iPhone 4 faceplates/backplates off them. Fei has been selling them on his website whiteiphonefournow.com fo... / Continue →

    Apparently stupid parents are getting their stupid children pet owls so they can be more like Harry Potter. Dammit Harry, why couldn't you have had a hamster?! In the story, owls are messengers and the child wizard has his own snowy owl named Hedwig, who has a fan base all he... / Continue →

    Remember Israel's robotic snake army? Well now when you cut them they just turn into more, littler robotic snakes. Which is exactly why we'll have to burn them. Instead of being built like a normal snake with a head at one end and a tail at the other, each segment of this sn... / Continue →

    Musk deer aren't new. As a matter of fact, I heard Methuselah once killed one with a rock and presented your mother with the pelt while trying to woo her. Oh snap, your momma's oooooold! Just kidding, I'm sure she's a spry 'lil lady. Unless you don't like her, in which we s... / Continue →

    One of the bigger question marks on my personal Will-It-Be-Shitty? superhero movie board has been Martin Campbell's adaptation of Green Lantern. Up until this trailer, I wasn't too convinced either way, and now that I've watched it a couple times... I'm still not that convinced... / Continue →

    I didn't even know Batman had a van. Ooooor a blow-up Robin love doll for when he's crime-fighting out of town. So yeah, double-whammy. Anyway, this is a BatVan modded by some crazy Japanese fanboy. Although custom vans are just a bad memory in America, they are still hugel... / Continue →

    Remember yesterday's biggest Harry Potter fan? Well here's the world's biggest Twilight fan. Can you see her? SHE'S THE ONE WEARING A F***ING WEDDING DRESS STANDING NEXT TO A WEREWOLF WITH A TUXEDO DRAWN ON. Seriously, this video is so full of sadness I don't know where to ... / Continue →

    This is a dress designed by Charlie Bucket that consists of 600 feet of looping sippy straws filled with glow-stick fluid. DAMMIT CHARLIE, WHY DIDN'T YOU MAKE IT OUT OF CHOCOLATE?! You have a whole damn factory. The dress is connected to a computer-controlled backpack pump t... / Continue →

    This is a 1:00 commercial for kitchen sinks or something made by Alex Roman entirely with computer graphics. I know you want to believe it's real, but it's not, just like the SPOILER ALERT!: tooth fairy. Under-the-bed goblins are real though, and they will grope you in your ... / Continue →

    Bill Nye is the bee's knees. He's interesting and he knows science. What he doesn't know is pain or proper medical procedures, which is why he got up and finished his speech after fainting on stage during a presentation at USC last night. GOD, WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME -- I... / Continue →

    Two British blokes decided to don their highly impressive Iron Man/War Machine costumes and take a jaunt around jolly ol' London. No word if they had fish & chips. 32-year-old John Bekkensten, from Norway, is an established sculptor for the movie industry, with works featured... / Continue →

    This is a vision of the future captured by famed horror photographer Joshua Hoffine (who also created THESE images). Needless to say, it'll be haunting my dreams (including the day variety) for months to come. GAAAH!! Sorry -- must have dozed off for a sec. Per the man hims... / Continue →

    This is a wearable LEGO Master Chief helmet designed and built by Ben Caulkins (no relation to Macaulay -- that he'll admit). It looks infinitely better than the cheap rubber version I picked up from the bargain bin at Carl's Costume Basement. Which, un-fun fact: is an actual... / Continue →

    What better way to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus than with a million-dollar advent calendar designed by Porsche? Singing Christmas carols and spreading good cheer? Don't make me laugh. Standing two meters tall and rendered from brushed aluminum, the "calendar" looks more... / Continue →

    I've given up on ever being skinny again. My skinny jeans stopped fitting six years ago. The last time I wore them was on my hand to wipe up the vomit on my bathroom floor after I overdid it at an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast (you can't tempt me like that!). Enter the $... / Continue →

    Note: 3:00 of insane fanboydom after the jump. This is a video of some 20-something crackpot wizard trying to win Moviefone's 'Biggest Harry Potter Fan' contest. Dude even changed his name to Harry Potter. I'm not gonna lie, he sounds like a shoe-in. Also, a sock-out, becau... / Continue →

    Bubble tents: for admiring the great outdoors without actually having to be out of doors. Hey, that reminds me of something. Oh right -- WINDOWS. Launched this year, the structures can be now be hired out at sites across France for around £400 pounds (~$635) a night. Once... / Continue →

    Would they look like this? Probably. Would I still eat some of the littler pieces? Absolutely. Created by LEGO master Andrew Becraft, these modified LEGO vehicles are just what the minifigs of LEGOland need to help stave off the zombies. You know, or they could go with a s... / Continue →

    So yeah, after years of holding out, the owners of the Beatles catalog have finally agreed to its release on iTunes. What does this mean? It means you can buy Beatles songs and albums on iTunes now. Jesus, this ain't rocket Scientology. What it is is nine years late. Indiv... / Continue →

    This is allegedly the world's smallest legible computer font, as designed by computer science professor Ken Perlin. I couldn't read a word of it. What is that, some kind of political manifesto? *whispering* Hoho -- the Declaration of Independence, I knew that. Sing along b... / Continue →

    Bob Mewse used to be 300 pounds. Now he's 200 pounds. All thanks to seeing a picture of himself on Google Street View, being thoroughly disgusted, and deciding to do something about it (and actually doing that thing -- that's the key). Me? I'm so fat I can't reach my belly ... / Continue →

    Hey ladies, wanna know what men find sexy? Naked womens. Followed by World of Warcraft elves, meat and heavy machinery. Don't want them ogling a bikini calender every time they go out to the garage to be manly? Enter the $55 (wait, what?!) 2011 Bauforum24 Heavy Equipment Ca... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a Russian Wolverine going to get his nails did (what, no pedi?!). Can you guess what happens? If you guessed, "his claws come out and he cuts the nail technician's arms off", you're wrong, but you did guess what I was hoping for. And for that you des... / Continue →

    The Critter Gitter is a ridiculous monster truck thing made for hunting zombies/everything else. Mostly everything else. But is that gonna stop me from hot-wiring one and plowing through groups of the undead once the apocalypse begins? It will not. It's called the Critter G... / Continue →

    A $30 remote that doubles as a pillow: terrible idea. A $30 remote that triples as a car and microwave: pure genius. Unfortunately, this isn't about genius, this is about crappy novelty products even your parents won't hesitate to re-gift. Never again will you have to ask, "... / Continue →

    The $200 Ion Twin Video Camera is a POS video camera that records both the action in front of AND behind the camera at the same time. But I can't stand your face! For every action there is a reaction. But capturing said reaction when you're videoing stuff is impossible becaus... / Continue →

    Note: Picture is unrelated. Just like my girlfriend and I. Will glowing trees replace streetlights? I doubt it. Still, you never know. If you'd asked me ten years ago if we'd have hover cars by now I'd have been all, "oh hell to the yes we will!" But look around -- what d... / Continue →

    Okay so that's not an actual award. Still, the Motorola Droid Pro come preloaded with the most painful default ringtone your eardrums could imagine. I've embedded the thing below, so hit play and give it a listen. Then, right before you stab yourself in the ears with a pen, ... / Continue →

    Because destroying expensive electronics is the new white (or is it black?), here's somebody grilling (literally) an Android, Windows Phone 7 and iPhone 4. Any idea who lasts the longest? I'll tell you if you really want to know. Just kidding, sitting through shit you don't ... / Continue →

    Note: Picture only moderately related on account of all the LEGO blocks. Looking to get your LEGO collection started with a bang? Homemade fireworks. Then look no further than eBay, my friend. They've got everything on there. I even bought a car off eBay once. It was legit... / Continue →
