    This is a short commercial for the new 2011 Dodge Charger, which advertises the vehicle as the leader of the human resistance against robots. They really should have run that by me first aside, I'll allow it. And not just because I'm hoping to score a free one for posting thi... / Continue →

    Hey Juggernaut -- smell my finger. That's Jabba's @$$hole! Because geeky-ass songs are all the rage these days, here's 'Tonight I'm Frakkin' You', a parody of Enrique Englesias' 'Tonight (I'm F***ing You)', which I've never heard and have no intentions of starting now. Also:... / Continue →

    This is Freddie Wong's take on Mario Kart in real life. It's different from Remi Gallard's versions because, instead of relying on being a jackass, Freddie relies on computer effects. Me? I rely on side effects. 'Don't Mix With Alcohol' my ass -- it's the only way daddy get... / Continue →

    Scientists at Yale University have developed a device capable of absorbing all the energy of an incoming laser, effectively saving your ass from an otherwise deadly robot laser blast. *ordering pew-proof pajamas* Give me a break, they're all I wear! Kidding, kidding -- just ... / Continue →

    Note: I know that screencap looks pretty booboo but I promise the video is actually cool. Hit the jump to watch it. This is a video of a samurai fighting some sort of shadow spirit made out of CG crows or some shit. I'm not really sure, but eventually it takes the form of ... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for a higher-res shot that does the house more justice. This is a sickly amazing LEGO build by Mike Doyle of an abandoned Victorian house that's been crushed by a tree. And speaking of getting crushed by trees: people who have sex with Ents. TIIIIIIIIIIIII... / Continue →

    This is a short fan-made Minecraft movie entitled 'The Last Mindcart' (not to be confused with 'The Last of the Mohicans'). It follows the story of two miners trying to navigate a zombie apocalypse (not to be confused with two ranchers trying to navigate a homosexual relations... / Continue →

    Note: 5-second video after the jump probably NSFW on account of a bra being clapped off and exposing a pair of pastied titties I had to watch three times to make sure weren't mine. The clap-off bra: not as cool as an ogle-and-drool-off bra, but this isn't exactly the future ... / Continue →

    After suggesting the city erect a Robocop statue, Detroit mayor Dave Bing quickly shot the idea down, Tweeting (TWEETING?!) ""There are not any plans to erect a statue to Robocop. Thank you for your suggestion." What the -- and you guys elected this dongle?! But thanks to a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some annoying-ass girl who decides to wedge a little video camera between her buttcheeks and wander around LA (I can recognize The Grove!) to study if men stare at her ass. Which, UNSURPRISING SPOILER: they do. Womens too. Unfortunately, this chick obvious... / Continue →

    Because no video game is complete until somebody proposes in it, a Minecraft proposal was made last week by A BioWare game developer to his BioWare game developer girlfriend. I'm not sure if the virtual ring was the only one presented, but that's pretty smart (and thrifty!) if... / Continue →

    Cigarette magnets: can you think of a better way to let a child know just how crappy their art is? "Um, yeah -- just tell them till they start crying." Damn you're sick. "Or you could throw it in the trash right in front of them." ENOUGH ALREADY, YOU WIN OKAY? Anyway, Ciga... / Continue →

    This is a fan-made commercial by 29-year-old Ben McCambridge (who spent $6K of his own money to create it) for the PS3 called 'Kids'. It shows young children cast in the following roles to demonstrate all the fantasy-fun to be had playing video games: 1. Middle school bully ... / Continue →

    Flashkus USB drives from Art Levedev Studios: they're made out of cardboard. Why the hell you'd make a flashdrive out of cardboard is beyond me, but maybe Mother Nature was really pushing for them as part of her anti-plastic campaign. GET OVER IT LADY -- MILK JUGS WILL NEVER ... / Continue →

    Kito Keyboard flip flops are exactly what they sound like. Unless you thought they sounded like actual keyboards you wear on your feet, in which case, okay, maybe I was wrong. Just kidding, I'm never wrong. Sometimes I do moonlight as a Dr. Wong though, but that's only to sn... / Continue →

    Scalpel! I honestly can't believe these weren't invented earlier but they probably were and I just never heard about them because nobody keeps me in the loop. CARING MEANS SHARING DAMMIT! "Well, if you must know, I think I'm developing a rash on my--" UGH, ENOUGH ABOUT YOU ... / Continue →

    Water goes up and comes back down -- can't explain that. This is a video of a guy who built a functional version of M.C. Escher's iconic eye-bending waterfall. Don't ask me how it works, but I suspect it has something to do with a carefully designed optical illusion (like thi... / Continue →

    HO IS RIGHT, ROBO-SKANK! This is a video of a HOAP-2 humanoid robot learning how to wipe a whiteboard (God, learn how to do your ass first!). Granted it does a pretty crappy(!) job, but the point is that it learned how to do it, it wasn't just programmed. Next up: wiping the... / Continue →

    Note: Obviously that isn't the whole graphic, you need to click RIGHT HERE NOW QUICK DO IT to see the whole thing. Facebook vs. Twitter: there can be only one. Just kidding, there can be more than one. Unless we're talking about bugs in my breakfast cereal, in which case, ye... / Continue →

    This is an animated gif of Leia handing a beer up to Luke after a long flight in his X-wing. I say after because I don't care how much Force you can harness, your ass is gonna crash into an asteroid if you drink too many before getting behind the wheel stick. Isn't that right... / Continue →

    It's a body bag! This is a sleeping bag that looks like an anatomical diagram of the human organs. You know, or a person who had their skin removed by a cannibal. Which, fun fact, look the exact same. Just don't use it when you're camping or you better believe somebody's go... / Continue →

    This is a fake-ass commercial for Super Harmony, an eHarmony knock-off for people who are or want to date superheroes/villains (NOT ugly people). I tried applying, but they were all, "dammit GW, you're more of a demigod than a superhero." And I was all, "I LIKE DUDES IN TIGHT... / Continue →

    Charlie is a 14-year old kitty that had to have the tip of his nose and ears removed due to skin cancer. He's fine now except the animal shelter he's at fears he'll never get adopted because he looks like Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter series. Really? I'm surprised som... / Continue →

    Remember the Street Fighter IV ultra combos video from a couple weeks ago? Pretty awesome, right? Yeah, TOO BAD IT WAS A TOTAL SAUSAGE LUNCHEON. So to make up for all the man-meat, the creators decided to shoot another video featuring ladies bringing the pain to a bunch of ... / Continue →

    This is a Castle Grayskull igloo built in Brooklyn, NY by artist Kilroy III and some of his friends. As you can see, it's pretty f***ing awesome. Well, provided you can get past how it looks like it was designed to fit 400 of Frosty's wieners in its mouth. Other than that th... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery of video game box-art reimagined with God of War's Kratos as the protagonist. They're all part of a user-submitted Photoshop contest from some Hungarian video game blog and surprisingly well conceived. Not unlike my son. JK JK -- total accident. Hit... / Continue →

    Note: Video possibly NSFW depending on how your employer feels about a couple f-bombs. Audio is naturally low though so I say go for it. This is a video of some crazy Ruskie (whose accent alone makes the video worth a watch) demonstrating the effects different caliber bullets... / Continue →

    Why it actually needs to grow a sleeve instead of just having one pre-installed is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with NOVELTY. Which, fun fact: rich people will pay for. Also, their pets back if you kidnap them. Anyway, the Heatswell Coffee Cup from Amron E... / Continue →
