    If it's anything like Peeps ass, I'm in for a treat! Note: Worthwhile high-res version with four pics HERE. This is the Michelin Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (of Ghostbusters fame, derder!) stuck between a rock and a hard place piece of chocolate and graham cracker. Unfortunate... / Continue →

    This is a video of what appears to be a group of terrorists with a 840 gun paintball rig in the back of a truck that can instantly produce a piece of graffiti in a fraction of a second. It's reminiscent of when the Mythbusters painted the Mona Lisa with paintballs, except with... / Continue →

    Fan Xiaoyan is a 27-year old Chinese artist who creates some of the creepiest shit my eyes have ever had the unfortunate displeasure of witnessing. They basically combine the horror of chrome-plated Decepticons with the frightfulness of nude mannequins. What? The female form... / Continue →

    Lazy Cakes are $3 prepackaged brownies with a bunch of natural herbs and other booboo tasting shit baked in to make you relax. If you can't tell from Lazy Larry the mascot and drug innuendo, they're marketing like weed brownies, except with no weed -- just "natural ingredients... / Continue →

    What I did there: I hope at least some of you can appreciate it. Scientists, in their unending quest to cure cancer determine if the side-show participants at Sea World are plotting a mutiny, are hard at work developing a translator capable of deciphering dolphin-ese. Geez, y... / Continue →

    Hoho -- rock-blocked! Should've brought along a wingman to distract the corona! Yesterday, May 12th, a comet, head-over-heels in love with the sun, decided to move in for a kiss (having learned apparently nothing from his brethren that tried the same last year). Unfortunatel... / Continue →

    You know, I was just stuck in LA traffic the other day mercilessly beating my head on the steering wheel hoping to die when I realized, "you know what this wheel really needs? A desk more buttons." Well, I guess Porsche was listening when designing the wheel for their upcomin... / Continue →

    Yes, that is under-boob. Seen here SITTING ON A F***IN' TANK WITH A CANNON BETWEEN HER LEGS (possibly two!), Chelsea Charms (not to be confused with Lucky Charms, which have way fewer artificial ingredients) shows off her 'world's largest' 164XXX sized mammaries. Pfft,that's n... / Continue →

    In other loosely related 'things with wheels' news, here's a model of a bicycle made entirely out of LEGO bricks that was spotted by LEGOmaniac (and Flickr user) Brickapolis on display at North Carolina's Brickmagic modular plastic block festival. As you can see, it completely... / Continue →

    Remember UNO, the self-balancing motorcycle/Segway hybrid? We posted about it way back in April of '08. Don't be too hard on yourself if you don't remember, that was more than three years ago -- an eternity by butterfly standards. Well the latest incarnation, the UNO 3, is m... / Continue →

    SHAVE THAT NECK HAIR I CAN'T STOP STARING AT IT. Japanese beauty product manufacturers, thoroughly convinced people actually believe something that jiggles can tone and tighten muscles, are back at it, this time with the 'Facial Lift At Once'. WTF is a Facial Lift At Once? I... / Continue →
  • May 12, 2011
    The Mt EverClimb (I see what you did there and I'm not impressed) Continuous Climbing Rope is exactly what it sounds like: an exercise climbing rope with no end. How do you know when you're done? When your hand gets sucked up into the machine and mangled. The piece of shit g... / Continue →

    The whole 'wake up to the smell of bacon' alarm isn't a new concept. As a matter of fact, we posted the Wake n' Bacon wood version almost three years ago. That was before you even finished kindergarten! "Uh, that would make me like eight now." Hoho, and it looks like you've... / Continue →

    WARNING: Videos after the jump will 100% prevent you from ever looking at Batman the same again. Some jerk-off tourist, clearly pissed Batman's grappling hook turned out to be a hairbrush tied to a ball of yarn, decided to beat the shit out of the masked crusader on a street-c... / Continue →

    Because I'll continue getting this tip for days to come if I don't post it, here it is -- a parody of the New York Times article about President Obama announcing that terrorist Osama Bin Laden was killed, except with Darth Vader announcing the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi instead. O... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a chick that got the Half-Life lambda logo cut out (link to way more brutal scarification post) of her leg. At least I think it's a chick. If it's not a chick those are the smoothest man-legs I've ever seen. Besides mine. I went in for a Brazilian wax a... / Continue →

    Note: Trying to follow that tiny-ass picture will only end with you throwing up your arms, yelling 'screw it all!' and watching porn. Click HERE for the full-size, legible version. If you're anything like me, you're a terrible decision maker. And not just because you find it... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to see two industrial robots swinging lightsabers at each other like some sort of futuristic mating ritual? Hey, as long as they both sever each other's arms off, I'm down. Amirite, Luke? High fi-- whoa, since when did you replace your mechanical hand with a hook... / Continue →

    Would also look good with two chest portals I'M JUST SAYIN'. This is a Weighted Companion Cube sweater hand-knit by Tumblr'er Monday. Personally, I like my lady's weighted sweater companions less cubey and more spherical. BOOBS I'M TALKING ABOUT BOOBS. I love them and I'm n... / Continue →

    Don't even pretend like you have hawk Sauron eyes and can read that, click HERE to see the whole thing in its high-res One Ring worthy glory. This is a visualization of the main characters' movements (NOT BOWEL) and battles throughout the Lord of the Rings trilogy as created... / Continue →

    GOD, WHY DO YOU GARBAGE MEN ALWAYS DRIVE BY WITHOUT EMPTYING MY BIN? "Because, that, sir, isn't the bin we're looking for." Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week or at least until management realizes I wasn't booked and don't know shit about comedy. Custom R2-D2 Garbag... / Continue →

    Is that a 'life back' guarantee? That's right folks, ten days to Judgement Day. That's the highest you can count on two hands provided you weren't born with extra digits (I have a half-pinky so I can round-up to eleven!). Apparently some religious zealots have unraveled th... / Continue →

    The University of Pennsylvania's Grasp Lab quadrocopters, of which we've already seen way more than enough to prove that they'll kill us all, are back at it, this time with the ability to follow a leader in some sort of synchronized flying ballet. Swan Lake it is not. Coming ... / Continue →

    This is an artistic video of a girl getting work done on her Alice in Wonderland themed tattoo sleeve shot with a high shutter speed by Christopher Chandroo (who also made the song that's playing, 'Dedicated to the National Trust'). Typically needles make me squeamish (because... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to print it out and masturbate to it or something. You people are sick. Ever wondered what makes an internet troll tick? SPOILER: A heart two sizes too small. "I'm pretty sure that was the Grinch." I'M PRETTY SURE YOU SHOULD ONLY ... / Continue →

    This is a video Geekologie Reader Sam made of what Duck Hunt might look like in real life, shot in the woods behind his parents' house. Personally, I think Duck Hunt in real life would look more like actually hunting live ducks like my uncle does, but what do I know, I'M JUST ... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to see Vincent Van Gogh's (the guy who cut off an ear and sent it to a prossy as a gift before offing himself -- boy, they don't make artists like that anymore!) iconic 'Starry Night' recreated in bacon? WELL TOO F***ING BAD BECAUSE HERE IT IS AND IT CAN'T BE UNSEE... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Richard combined a magnetic-wave reading headset and a fan motor with a pick attached to "strum" a guitar at variable speeds based on how hard he's concentrating. I SAID 'ARE YOU READY TO ROCK'?! *wails on imaginary whammy-bar till it breaks off* the head... / Continue →

    Using the Force -- of persuasion! This is a gallery of a bunch of Star Wars posters in the style of old propaganda war ones. I've seen at least this one and this one before, but the rest were new to me. Well, what do you think? Would they convince you to join a side? Perso... / Continue →

    What do you get when you combine 10-pounds of gummi bears, a love for oldschool video games, and waaaaaay too much free time on your hands? A chubby kid playing Nintendo for 8-hours straight. This video. Or -- OR -- a Mario costume made entirely out of gummi bears. Just lic... / Continue →

    This is a picture of Battlestar Galactica's original 1978 Lieutenant Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) hanging out with the 2004 series' Lieutenant/Captain Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) at Starbucks drinking Starbucks smoking Starbucks Cohibas. Did your brains just esplode? Mine didn't. ... / Continue →

    Bro you should probably get that bump on your lip checked out by a vet. Desmoteplase, an enzyme found in vampire bat saliva that has evolved to quickly thin a victim's blood so they can suck them dry the quickest, may prove a useful weapon in breaking up the brain-damaging blo... / Continue →

    First two robot posts in a row, now two LEGO ones. Looks like it's turning into a 2-for-Tuesday, folks! No -- just a beautiful day in the neighborhood? Then why do I hear screaming and gunshots? *locking door* This is a gallery of this summer's blockbuster movie posters wi... / Continue →

    Sticks & stones will STILL break your bones in LEGO armor I'm just sayin'. This is a very impressive suit of Master Chief armor made entirely out of LEGO pieces (except for the previously made helmet's visor, DERDER) by LEGOmaniac Ben Caulkins (not to be confused with Macaulay... / Continue →

    The world's most useless machine (aka The Ultimate Machine designed by Claude Shannon) is the moniker given to a little robotic box that, when a toggle switch is pushed, opens the top of the box, and, with a little robotic finger, turns the toggle back to the original position.... / Continue →

    Osaka University, which is notorious for undertaking creepy robotic projects, just moved up my shit list, leap-frogging past the guy at my local Subway who can't make a f***in' tuna melt to save his life. "Have you threatened to stab him?" Pfft -- have I threatened to stab hi... / Continue →

    It's not actually modeled after a blue shell from Mario Kart, that's just what it reminds me of. Kind of like how Polo Sport cologne reminds me of freshman year when I'd douse myself with it pretending I was going out to pick up chicks until my roommate left, then stay in and ... / Continue →

    Having a picnic? I'll bring the melon balls. Remember Slingshot Guy? How could you forget, I think I'm developing a non-sexual (okay, MOSTLY non-sexual) man-crush on him. MOVE OVER MIKE ROWE aside, here he is with his latest slinger of shots, the 'slingshot of mass destruct... / Continue →

    Note: Unsurprisingly 'Lord of the Rings' related. Some geek (who probably shat a Hobbit after reading the original article) felt it his One Ring given duty to write The New York Times and set them straight on the utter embarrassment of their sword-confusing ways. I'd be tempt... / Continue →

    Don't tell Mikey but I filled mine with battery acid. Bonzai Dragon Drenchers are $25 pieces of shit water guns. They're filled up via garden hose and then, when squeezed, can shoot water up to 25ft to drench your friends. Whee!!!! Whee? woo. God, whatever happened to spl... / Continue →

    Ever assembled anything from IKEA using the instructions? I haven't, I throw them away like a real man only buy scratch & dent/opened packages to save a buck because I'm cheap. But maybe you have. And, if so, you're probably familiar with the look of these things. Created b... / Continue →

    You gobble those dots, Polly! This is a short video of a cockatiel that can replicate the iconic sound of Pac-Man in the middle of a dot-gobbling spree (not to be confused with a shopping spree, which sounds like a buggy with a bad wheel being pushed as fast as it can). Now b... / Continue →
  • May 9, 2011
    Audio totally related. Because what could possibly go wrong (SPOILER: everything!), scientists have developed a schizophrenic computer in an attempt to prove that the disorder's symptoms are the result of a brain's struggle to process stimuli effectively. My brain? It stru... / Continue →

    No clue where this store is but you better believe I'm doing all my shopping there from here on out. So what if they don't sell toilet paper -- you think I won't wipe with meat on a stick?! Done it before. "You nasty, GW!" *turns around, discreetly pees in blue potion bottl... / Continue →

    'Raspberry Pi' is a $25 computer on a USB drive. It's also delicious, so I'm more than a little miffed I don't have anything but a half gallon of Juicy Juice and a single expired yogurt in the fridge right now. Oh -- what's this?! Moldy cottage cheese. *tastes, begins retch... / Continue →

    Ever wondered what a chick with a tail would look like? Congratulations, you're probably a furry. REPENT NOW BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE. Just kidding, do whatever you want. I'm not here to judge, I'm just here to -- actually, I don't know why I'm here. Or how I even got here. D... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy who made a fully functional replica of Ezio's hidden blade from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. It's activated by a ring worn on the finger and locks into place once extended, but retracts with another twitch of the finger. Obviously, I must have one. ... / Continue →
