    So -- anybody get Raptured? My roommate actually disappeared but so did my wallet and there's vomit in the hallway so I assume he's just on a bender. Still, can't say I'd miss him if he were gone for good. This is a picture of Animal as Wolverine and Beaker as Cyclops by Dev... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're convinced there's some fine-print that might save your ass (there isn't though is the thing). This is a handy-dandy flowchart to determine whether or not you're going to be raptured tomorrow. SPOILER: no. Well -- what was your offen... / Continue →

    This is an amazing looking series of digital paintings by artist Dave Rapoza of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters (sans the actual four turtles). They're amazing. David even has time-lapse videos on his website of him painting some of them, along with a bunch of other Nin... / Continue →

    SPOILER ALERT: Last six minutes of Smallville. Ever wanted to hear a guy go completely f***ing nuts watching the series finale of Smallville? Even if you don't know it yet, you do. This is the kind of shit I live for (plus nipples and beer). Dude's like the double rainbow g... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res (1600 x 1200) version HERE in case you're convinced there's a stray shadow faux pas somewhere you could spot if the image were just larger. This is a for-really-real picture taken by Frans Lanting in Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. Like, it hasn't been Photosho... / Continue →

    Small-blocks, get it? Like the engines, yo! This is the trailer for the upcoming sequel to Cars (cleverly entitled Cars 2), made in LEGO blocks by Patrick Boivin for Disney and Pixar. The original Cars (which came out in 2006) has the distinct honor of being the last movie I... / Continue →

    I wasn't allowed to watch Inception (NOT Conception, which is how you were accidentally made) because my mom said it would be far too complicated for me to understand and might make me unstable, but I did like the previews they showed on TV. I'm also into skin-care commercials... / Continue →

    Fett there be light! Get it?! Because I'm afraid of the Dark Side. This is stained glass lamp (not a smoking pipe) of Boba Fett's helmet made by DeviantARTist mclanesmemories (Michael McLane). Personally, I think it's amazing, but I'm also a sucker for stained glass. You k... / Continue →

    Where was I in '72? Not even born yet, let alone staring at a bunch of jungle bush! Playboy has just announced the roll-out (like Transformers! NOT like fruit snacks -- those roll up. Plus some gush!) of iPlayboy, a subscription service optimized for iPad viewing that grants... / Continue →

    I'm sure this is all bullshit but it's fun to think about anyways. Unless you're locked in a house with a guy who grows pot for a living and he's talking nonstop about wack-ass government conspiracies, then it gets less fun and more "I've got to get the f*** out of here!" Tha... / Continue →

    Luke Skywalker's can't even do that! Seen here looking suspiciously like it was put on wrong, 24-year old Austrian amputee Patrick Nolastname shows off his new bionic hand. Patrick lost function of his left hand (that's my good one!) after being electrocuted on the job (NOT i... / Continue →

    There not actually being an 'art' in 'barista' (unless you scramble the letters) aside, I just thought it sounded good. Kind of like hearing somebody say your name. "Dragonlord." Mmmm, music to my ears. This is a bunch of coffee froth art from Freemont Coffee Company and is... / Continue →

    No need for Force chokes, Vade -- they'll die on their own. Ever wanted to see an ultra-enthusiastic Darth Vader playing a trombone salsa routine to a roomful of uninterested senior citizens? Today's your lucky day! Stormtrooper Mime: *How was it?* Trombone Vader: Dude it'... / Continue →

    Researchers at The University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology have taught robots how to develop their own language. That way, when they're about to deal the finishing blow to an injured human, they can ask if you want the laser beam in your beep boop or g... / Continue →

    I'm mixing two different space-related news stories together for this post. Think of it as combining ingredients to bake something, except, instead of a cake, we wind up with a jumbled mess of WTF. Tasty! First, a "nearby" habitable planet: A red dwarf star 20 light-years a... / Continue →

    Note: Long-ass screencap of all his searches to date HERE. These are allegedly the search queries of an 81-year old grandpa whose elder-disrespecting son has convinced Twitter is a search engine. It has highly questionable written all over it considering 1. gramps only makes ... / Continue →

    The Center for Disease Control has officially developed a plan in the case of a zombie outbreak, and I'm going to be honest here: it blows. HARD. Listen to them and you're gonna be zombie fodder quicker than you can say "OMG, I think this smelly chick wants to kiss me!" List... / Continue →

    I've never seen any Eye of Sauron cosplay before, and now I can see why: that shit's not easy to pull off. Thankfully, Captain Flameface here was up to the challenge. Not gonna lie, I thought he was the Cowardly Lion at first. Also, Saruman looks like she's ten, tops. UPDAT... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader and graphic designer extraordinaire Natalie Al-Tahhan went and created 10 minimalistic Pokémon designs as part of a series she calls 'Essence of Pokémon'. Admittedly, I've never actually smelled a Pokémon before, but I have made the mistake of sniffing my ... / Continue →

    This is probably the best Mentos in Coke video that exists. I've spent countless hours minutes watching other ones, and now I'm wishing I hadn't. I know the screencap I used looks like broski's about to bottle-cap his eyeballs out, but it's even better than that. Okay, not b... / Continue →

    Note: Another bonus shot of the shuttle launch taken from earth that may or may yes look exactly like somebody trying to nuke a cloud. This is a picture of Endeavor's last blast-off taken by Stephanie Gordon during a flight bound for Palm Beach, Florida. Now I know what you'r... / Continue →

    Having trouble with the paparazzi? I can tell, your "I'm kind of a big deal" t-shirt gave it away. Kidding, but it is giving way to your stomach and your belly button's staring at me. I said make it stop! Anyway, paparazzi censor-bar sunglasses: now you'll never be able to ... / Continue →

    Seen here unsuccessfully trying to throw a hadouken (stop stealing moves!), Link dances his way to Zelda's heart in the original Japanese commercial for A Link to the Past. But that's not what I came here to talk about (although I did still embed the video after the jump if yo... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE in case you're a firm believer in there being such a thing as too small. Hey -- f*** you, all my ex's! This is a whole bunch (65) of lil Star Wars characters drawn by artist mikeydoodles. Me? GWpiddles. Mikey plans on doing at least 100... / Continue →

    This video was sent to me by Geekologie Reader Trevor, who works for Janimation, the company behind the project. It features the company's latest and greatest in motion-capture and facial animation technology. It's some fairly serious eye candy. And by eye candy I mean eeril... / Continue →

    Aarguably the most appropriate skeleton for a closet. Get it?! Because it's knit like a sweater you bonehead! *swish* This is an allegedly complete skeleton (I say allegedly because I didn't see a boner bone. "Boners aren't actually bones." *mind-explodes*) hand-knit by ar... / Continue →

    Note: Video audio is VERY NSFW on account of "motherf'er'" over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. This is a video of a new father after learning how to get his child's toy telephone to say 'motherf'er'. Based on the fact that he took the time to vid... / Continue →

    This is a Pikachu/Cthulhu hybrid. I'm calling it Pikathulhu, but you can call it whatever the hell you want. "I'm calling it butt-ass ugly." That's fine, I just wouldn't say it to his face. "I'm not scared!" Ha, this coming from the guy who won't even make a phone call wit... / Continue →

    Wait -- so there's no heaven, or it's just not wheelchair accessible? Stephen Hawking, in a tireless effort to bring the church down on him like the great thinkers that have come before him (I hope you have nitrous boost on that wheelchair!), first proclaimed there is no God (... / Continue →

    This is Luna. "The sharp dresser?" No, that's Mr. T Fred Nikgohar, the CEO of RoboDynamics, the company responsible for Luna. Luna is the dog. Jk jk, it's the ridiculous looking robot. The dog looks more like a Brownie or Sandy. But that's not what I came to talk about, I... / Continue →

    Mainstream media, clearly underestimating the perverted nature of the general populace (or is it just the internet? "It's just you." Oh.), ran with an Associated Press story covering the weekend box office with the news lede "Thor hammers Bridesmaids". Which, fun fact, he ac... / Continue →

    Well done. Get it?! Like meat, yo! This is a meat smoker ("just like you, GW!") designed and built to look like R2-D2 by Philip Wise (you're smart -- how do magnets work?). The droid was constructed out of an old 55-gallon drum and comes with everything you need to smoke a ... / Continue →

    Because morbidly obese is the new phat, Oreo has announced they'll be rolling out (just like your stomach's gonna be!) a new line of Triple Double sandwich cookies this summer. WTF is a triple double? Nothing you'll ever perform on the basketball court after pounding a box, t... / Continue →

    This is a fake-ass video of a whole bunch of those Chuck E Cheese ball pit balls allegedly floating around in mid-air thanks to a giant electromagnetic and some iffy electronics stuffed inside each one. You can send it to your friends telling them it's real if you want, but it... / Continue →

    Sorry, silver body paint sold separately. I'm sure bra holsters have existed forever. It just seems like something somebody would have invented a long time ago. Probably a dude. I can see it now: "Mmmm, titties and guns -- I need to make that happen." Anyway, the Flashbang... / Continue →

    Graphic artist Lishoffs (aka Fabian Gzlez) is at it again, this time combining the characters in the English alphabet with the characters in classic video games. As you can see, A is for absolutely no idea, B is for beats me and C is for clue: I haven't got one. Just kiddin... / Continue →

    He poisoned my bananas, I saw him! This is a video of a PR2 robot that's been programmed to scan and bag groceries. Except he doesn't so much bag them as toss them around haphazardly after spending a minute or two staring at each one (GOD, IT'S APRICOT FACIAL SCRUB -- PUT IT ... / Continue →

    [PICTURE REMOVED] Note: The artist asked me to remove the pictures because you're all a bunch of shameful shit-talkers whose parents are embarrassed of. You can still see them by visiting his DeviantART (link after jump). This is a series of digital paintings of Disney princes... / Continue →
