    Shotgun! Ever wanted to see four Hummers get sucked out the back of an airplane in the dead of night over Iraq? Relax bro, I've got you covered. Unless it's your privates cause your swim trunks ripped or a bar fight, in which case we've never met and you don't even look fami... / Continue →

    This is a video of TRON guy Jay Maynards (as in, *kick* OOOOH MAYNARDS!) "performing" on 'America's Got Talent', a freakshow where three questionably talented judges gauge the talent of a bunch of weirdos. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! Unfortunately for the Matrix or whatever, TRON guy pe... / Continue →

    PR2, the creepy-as-f*** looking robot that comes with both male-pleasure and grocery bagging capabilities, is back at it, this time adding and mixing chocolate chip cookie ingredients. The video is sped up 20x though, and it still takes him 4-minutes, meaning it'd take over an... / Continue →

    The Eatensil is exactly what it sounds like. "An edible pencil?!" Okaaaaaaaay, maybe not. They really should have called it the Chopsitckpizzacuttersporknifewoodenthingybottleopener, which, I think we can all agree, really rolls off the tongue. Also, marbles when your mom p... / Continue →

    This is a small series of conceptual neon signs by Twitterer/Tumblr'r Mr Whaite. Personally, I think the AT-AT one would look great in my rumpus room. Ha, rumpus room -- like I have a rumpus room! I live in a studio -- my kitchen and bathroom are practically the same. G... / Continue →

    DOOOOOOOOOOOO IT! 3-D illusion artist Erik Johansson (not to be confused with Edward Mueller or Julian Beever, who do the same thing) painted this illusion in Stockholm at Sergels torg. It's called 'Mind your step', and appears (from a single angle anyway) to be...A PIT OF DE... / Continue →

    After a concerned citizen (read: nutjob) presented Leicester City with a Freedom of Information request concerning its emergency plan for a zombie attack, city council officials were forced to admit there wasn't one. *mind explodes* Ms Wyeth [head of information governance] s... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole graphic, you'll have the jump to see it all. My wiener? A hop, skip AND the jump. So apparently global internet use is expected to quadruple by 2015 (if we can make it that long!), to one zettabyte a year. "How big is that compared to a breadbox?"... / Continue →

    Hoverbikes: they're right up there with hoverboards for things I need yet don't exist despite being promised we'd have this sort of technology by the year 2000. You're lettin' me down, science! Thankfully, Australian Chris Malloy has taking matters (AND HIS LIFE) into his own... / Continue →

    I'mma wipe this wet floor up WITH MY FACE. Note: Flash video embedded after jump directly from The Sun because they suck star-sized balls (sun tie-in -- count it!) when it comes to annoying copyright claims over their "exclusive" videos. You don't own London's CCTV system! ... / Continue →

    "Here's to nipples...without 'em boobs would have no point." Pumping, get it?! Me neither, I thought it had something to do with breasts. Give me a break, I don't even know how nipples work. So, remember China's plan to splice the human breast milk genome into cow embryos a... / Continue →

    Facebook, which can't even manage to function properly because of all the other worthless bullshit they've added to the site, has decided to drop another turd on the pile, this time in the form of 'Tag Suggestions', facial recognition software that, after your face has been ide... / Continue →

    Haha -- I'm about to erase the f*** outta Monday! Meytrapone, a drug traditionally used recreationally to diagnose adrenal insufficiency, is now showing promise as a negative memory "forgetter" when taken soon after a negative event. Ugh, BUT I WANT TO ERASE IT ALL. "Metyrap... / Continue →

    Seen here spying on a lady changing before coming though the window and chasing her up the stairs, a spherical reconnaissance drone developed by the Japanese military is put through its paces. For now the ball is remote controlled, but an autonomous flight system is currently ... / Continue →

    These ghost ants, which we will now only refer to as Christmas light ants, have clear abdomens and turn the color of whatever they eat. Which, in the wild, is probably a green or brown. BORING! I say we bring some rainbow cake and glowsticks to our next picnic. Also, maybe ... / Continue →

    Seen here trying to win an invisible limbo contest, an Argentinian jet pilot flies an FMA IA 63 Pampa (I would've called it the Puma) straight into a group of people. I'm genuinely surprised nobody got sucked into an engine, it was that close. Because one time I got sucked in... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Stefan Petit spent six-months faithfully recreating some 43 of the in-game posters from Bioshock. These are them. I want them. ALL. Plus a Big Daddy. Or, what the gay community might describe as a 'bear'. "GRRAAAWR!" OMG -- yes, YESSSSSS! This was a ... / Continue →

    I was originally gonna Photoshop some comic book panels onto a mortar board for the picture, but I'm pressed for time today so just imagine that in your head for a second before continuing. I did a pretty good job, right? Thanks. Dundee University (which, before you ask, y... / Continue →

    NEEDS MORE RETINA DISPLAY. Steve Jobs, best known for starting Jobs.com or whatever, has unveiled a new corporate headquarters for his company in Cupertino, CA that looks suspiciously like the One Ring. What? I can ready Elvish! It reads, "I faked my own death." I KNEW IT!... / Continue →

    Is this the future of airport security screening? I dunno, but I'd hate to be in the terrorist line! "Um, honey -- we've got like twenty yellow-liners on our flight." Instead of a single screening procedure applied to all fliers, the group envisions that passengers would b... / Continue →

    This is the best beer commercial ever (SET TO THE NIGHT RIDER THEME!) coming to us all the way from Hahn Brewery, Australia. It features an overview of their brewing process from beginning to end, which, from what I could gather, is almost identical to the preparation of my fa... / Continue →

    Aaaaaaaand we're back. Sorry for the late start folks, but there was a problem with the publishing system that yelling and chugging beers just couldn't solve. This is a video of some chick getting 152 of her Facebook friends' profile pictures tattooed around her arm. Why? I... / Continue →

    Faced with the problem of long charge times for electric vehicles vs. the immediacy of pumping gas, lab-coated, taped-glasses scientists at MIT have developed an electric power "goo" that can be pumped into electric cars for an immediate charge. Me? Two boner pills and a beer... / Continue →

    Today at E3 Nintendo announced the 2012 release of its next generation console, the Wii U (great job knocking the 'an even worse name than I expected' ball out of the park, guys). The system will boast controllers with 6.2" high-res touchscreens (and a gyroscope, accelerometer... / Continue →

    You know how they say people look like their dogs? That's because most people are ugly (alternatively: pugly). I don't look anything like my dog. I look like something Michelangelo would have carved out of marble with a diamond dong, and she looks like she's licking her vaj ... / Continue →

    I've never seen or read any of the Harry Potters because I'm against the portrayal of fake wizardry, but a friend told me this was "absolutely f***in' hysterical", so here it is. I actually bothered doing the research (which is rare) to understand the joke and now I just feel ... / Continue →

    Got a cool $2.5M lying around? GIVE IT TO ME, I'LL DO ANYTHING (including, and virtually limited to: stab you for it). Oooooor you could squander it on a $2.5M custom Pirates of the Caribbean home theater from Elite Home Theater Seating (who also designed the Batcave one). G... / Continue →

    Members of the media at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which is happening right down the street and I should be attending except for the fact I've been ban-hammered from the LA Convention Center for reasons I can't discuss until the trial is over (geez, find another venue!)... / Continue →

    This is a lil robot that looks like a beer can until it sprouts tripod legs and starts dancing around on the table (NOT like a sessy table dance -- if you're hoping for a sessy table dance don't even bother watching because you're gonna be disappointed). I assume it opted to d... / Continue →

    ♫ Butterfly in the sky, Jabba is twice as high ♫ Note: High-res version HERE in case you're in the market for the world's crappiest wallpaper. We've already seen Yoda, so it was only a matter of time before somebody got high enough to spot Jabba in cumulus (or is that st... / Continue →

    These are functional light switches made with arcade buttons (NOT belly buttons, which I would never use even if it meant stumbling around in the dark and stubbing all my toes off). Etsy seller AlephDesign is selling them for $30, but you do get to choose the colors. PINK AND... / Continue →

    WARNING: Spider. This is a sick-ass CG animation (called 'Loom') of a moth getting stuck in a spider's web and the resulting pandemonium. Then we take a trip inside the spider to see how silk is made. That part was kind of grody. Like how on one hand butts can be super sessy... / Continue →

    David Martines is a nutjob who claims to have found a secret Martian base while using Google Earth to scan the red planet. You can go take a look yourself at coordinates 49'19.73"N 29 33'06.53"W if you're interested. I was going to, but then I realized Google Earth isn't brow... / Continue →

    TOO LATE WARNING: NOT UNSEEABLE. I don't like that. It's giving me the heeby-jeebies. "You mean a boner?" No, I mean the heeby-jeebies. My penis is actually crying right now. Get it? I PEED MY PANTS. Hit the jump for a couple more in case you really REALLY hate your eyeb... / Continue →

    I actually have no clue WTF is going on here, but I approve of every last bit of it. Cool Guy of the Day [geeks.thedailywh.at] Thanks to Mark, who agrees the picture could use some more stormtrooper. ... / Continue →

    Because if there's one thing that can help prevent pregnancy, it's definitely novelty underwear. Suck it, condoms! A company called WWYMD (what would your mother do? Not buy me novelty underwear, that's for sure!) is selling women's underoos with messages like "dream on", "z... / Continue →

    Darth Vader, being the deadbeat dad that he is, decided to go to Disneyland to check out the revamped Star Tours ride and didn't bother bringing Luke or Leia. This is a video of his trip, which was made with the help of Geekologie Reader and stormtrooper TK-745 (not to be conf... / Continue →

    You know what this antimatter trap needs? More tinfoil. Antimatter: I have no idea what it is. I thought it was something you told a frienemy to hurt their feelings. But apparently it has something to do with particles. And now CERN has successfully trapped some for 1,00... / Continue →

    Seen here laying down some fresh beats, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak believes we've already lost the war on robotics and humans will be little more more than robots' pets (read: sex slaves) in the future. Wonderful, wonderful news. *chugging the Kool-Aid* "We're already c... / Continue →
