    This is a video of a creepy-as-f*** dancing robot. Except it doesn't really dance as much as it just stands there waving its arms around like it's trying to guide a plane into its terminal but having a seizure at the same time. It's fairly seductive. But no worries, I'm not... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy proposing to his Mario-loving girlfriend. He decked out his living room to resemble the Mushroom Kingdom, and even had her knock the engagement ring "out" of a question block with her head. Good lookin', guys -- you've just given hope to thousands of ... / Continue →

    Lunch Bugs are sandwich bags with bugs printed on them to help deter lunch theft. They're basically a variation of the already-existing mold-bags and will run you $7 for a 24-pack. That makes them almost $0.30 apiece, which is a little steep for a bag (I pay $0.99 for snack p... / Continue →

    Because variety is the spice of life (sometimes I have a hotdog AND cheeseburger for lunch), 7-11 is launching a dual-chambered Slurpee cup in June so you can suck two flavors at once. But that's not all! There will also be straws available with a valve inside so you have the... / Continue →

    Picture sadly unrelated: it was a regular-ass controller. A Florida man was arrested after attempting to rob a convenience store by pretending the Playstation controller in his pocket was a gun. *facepalm* You didn't even have the wherewithal to use A NES Zapper?! He was ar... / Continue →

    Kidding, I'm pretty sure the future of pen technology is writing with lasers. Could you imagine signing your name with a laser-pen? I can, and not just because I've practiced with my penis in the snow, but I have and I can do it in block letters AND cursive. So yeah, spirali... / Continue →

    Nice Stark mug. Remember Volkswagen's Superbowl commercial featuring the lil Vader who couldn't harness The Force that captivated audiences and stole our hearts? Well this is a Marvel parody advertising the new Thor movie that, from what I've seen so far, may or may yes suck ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-size version HERE. I did Photoshop the image to include all the interesting products on one page, but I didn't add any that weren't actually there. So basically people that bought a Miley Cyrus love doll are exactly like you. Pfft, the Dragon Age strategy guide -... / Continue →

    The invisible chair isn't actually invisible, you can still see the metal armature and, more than likely, the polyurethane film that you actually sit on. Still, I would get one and put a potted cactus underneath it for shock value. Then, after my friends (LOL!) have come over... / Continue →

    According to the Terminator franchise, specifically The Sarah Conner Chronicles (which I see no reason not to believe), Skynet went live last night, April 19th, 2011, at 8:11 PM, and Judgement Day will proceed tomorrow (April 21st). Wow, what an awesome 4/20 this turned out to... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a video of a crashed UFO and dead alien from somewhere in Russia. "Why would an alien want to visit Russia?" Exactly. You should really consider a career in unsolved mysteries. "Really?!" F*** no, you're way too good at what you do now. "Pretending to ... / Continue →

    This is a guy erasing CD's by stripping the reflective aluminum layer off with high current electricity. It's officially my new favorite way to destroy sensitive material on disc. Definitely beats bending them until they shatter! Using them as clay plastic pigeons for shotgu... / Continue →

    It doesn't actually pack punches -- it packs little crossbow bolts. It may still pack lunches though, or it may steal other peoples' out of the fridge in the breakroom. I know I'm not about to confront a little crossbow about a missing 6" tuna-melt! The very impressive firea... / Continue →
