    'The Football' is the nickname given to the briefcase containing the protocol and authorization codes for launching a nuclear offensive that's always carried by one of the president's nearby aides (Wikipedia article HERE). Except for this one. This one's filled with a party. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Microsoft's interactive Holodesk 3-D See-Through Display. Using it, you can manipulate virtual objects with your hands. Unfortunately, you can't actually "feel" the objects, making this 3-D rendering of a titty I just spent the last 30 minutes making in Aut... / Continue →

    Disney princesses: they're all terrible role-models. The Geekologie Writer: he's even worse. Still, I'm not the one on the television in front of thousands of impressionable young children right now. Although I certainly SHOULD be. Hey kids, it's me, the Geekologie Wizard! ... / Continue →

    This is one in a series of long-ass videos of a guy beating all of Super Mario 64 using nothing but his socked feet. He's not physically challenged (mentally, sure) or anything, he just decided to give it a go. Impressive brobro, but I once beat a part of Assassin's Creed wit... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a diver balancing a ten foot shark vertically because apparently you can do that if you have balls big and heavy enough to keep you on the ocean floor. Which this lady clearly does. [The diver] balanced a vertical 10-foot shark thanks to her unusual abili... / Continue →

    Note: Picture completely f***ing ridiculous. Is the next generation XBox coming in 2013? How am I supposed to know -- do I look like a video game insider? "No, you look like shit." EXAAACTL-- wait... Develop reports that chip manufacturers and software middleware firms exp... / Continue →

    *knock knock* Who's there? Hello -- HELLO?! I dunno, I think it's Google but all I can hear is laughing. So MC Hammer is launching his own search engine. Is it gonna suck? Do I really need to answer that? But wait -- it's got deep searching. WTF is a deep search? No clu... / Continue →

    Bro I could see those chops through 20-feet of solid steel -- blindfolded. Researchers at MIT have developed a way to crappily see through walls using amplified radar signals. Amplified radar? That has superpowers written all over it! "Actually it says, WARNING: RADIO FREQU... / Continue →

    Prepare to eat ivory you wonk-eyed pianist! This is Teotronico. Teotronico is a robot that plays a keyboard. I heard he tried out for the Chuck E. Cheese band but they told him he looks like an animatronic sugar skull and to take a hike. Personally, I would have told him ... / Continue →

    Remember Lytro's promise to produce a light-field camera that captures all the light information in a scene so you can choose any focal distance you want on a computer LONG AFTER THE SHOT WAS TAKEN? Well they're selling them now. FOR REALS (or for fakes and they're just gonna... / Continue →

    This is Chewbacca made out of chewing tobacco (and glue and wire and electrical/duct tape). It looks like his proportions are a little off. Also, like a hotdog that fell off the grill onto dirt. But would that stop me from dusting him off, wrapping him in a piece of processe... / Continue →

    This is a video of an alleged 2,000-foot long Hot Wheels track that can keep a car going for the entirety of its length thanks to a small fortune in those little battery-operated car launcher thingies. Of course it could be a hoax (what kind of sick f*** hoaxes a Hot Wheels tr... / Continue →

    After that performance I'm wishing the same. This is the music video for William Shatner's painful as f*** cover of Queen's iconic 'Bohemian Rhapsody', appearing on his 2-disc classic rock cover album 'Seeking Major Tom.' Also appearing on William Shatner's cover album? Brig... / Continue →

    This is a picture of Australian video game show host Stephanie Bendixsen (you're not folding my wiener anywhere!) on a Throne of Games. Get it? Like Game of Thrones except...actually I don't get it either. A tipster told me it would be funny but now I'm starting to wonder. ... / Continue →

    This is a series of worthwhile time-lapse videos of earth taken from aboard the International Space Station. I...still can't believe that thing's actually up there. The sun either. You can't even see the wires holding it up! "Tell me you're joking." Haha, it's fishing line... / Continue →

    Because get-rich-quick schemes have officially hit rock bottom, a man from Northern Ireland was recently arrested after his doodoo-into-gold experiments set his apartment block on fire. Smooth move, Rumpelshitskin. It is thought that as part of the bizarre experiment Moran ... / Continue →

    Tom Boddingham ordered a pair of custom novelty slippers off website Monster Slippers. Tom, who's 6'7" and possibly the son of a Yeti, ordered a size 14.50 for his left foot and 13 for his right because DAMN BRO YOUR FEET ARE A SIZE-AND-A-HALF APART?! Mine are only 1/2, freak... / Continue →

    This is a series of clever wall decals to apply near electric outlets/light switches. They were designed to add a little pizza pizazz to what would normally be considered an eyesore. And speaking of eyesores -- I let my fingernails grow real long, right? Well I think I cut m... / Continue →

    Remember: safety last. This is a video of a guy driving a smashed-to-shit 18-wheeler in Russia. No clue who he drives trucks for but I doubt he's gonna be working there much longer. Get it? Because he's a f***ing goner. BUCKLE YOUR SAFETY BELT, BRO! Hit the jump for the w... / Continue →

    You ever wanted to ride a cloud? Whenever I'm flying through them I always think to myself, "WHAAAAAA, HOLY SHIT HOW AM I DOING THIS?!?!" then I wake up and it all makes sense. But seriously, if I can be real with you for a second: I'm the world's greatest lover and I have t... / Continue →

    This is set of conceptual Zelda character playing cards designed by DeviantARTist Nelde. If they were real I would buy them and play strip poker with them. But they aren't. So instead I'm going to print them out, tape them to regular cards, and start getting naked. "That's ... / Continue →

    Sweet urn-clock bro. So apparently Harrison Ford (best known for his role in the made-for-TV 'Dynasty' movie) is starring in a series of Japanese commercials for Uncharted 3. And this is him playing the game for seven minutes. It's pretty boring. The video, not the game. I... / Continue →

    Now bite that shit like a hoagie. Remember the one-eyed shark baby found in Mexico that you ran to the comments as fast as you could to yell FAKE at? God I wish you'd been carrying scissors. Well it's real. The people I talk to on my cell phone at the bar to not look like s... / Continue →

    This the the Beautiful Mess chair. I know it looks like something treasure hunters hauled up from a shipwreck, but it's not -- it's a chair. It's made out of rubber or something and kind of unravels to form a lounger (picture of transformation after the jump). As awkward as ... / Continue →

    Want you Battlefield 3 experience a little more realistic? JOIN AN ARMY. Not that realistic? Check out this Battlefield 3 simulator system -- the realest you can get without bleeding and using your dying breath to tell a comrade you used to put on your girlfriend's panties a... / Continue →

    Seen here doing their best (and failing) to look cool posing with a giant version of a children's toy, two brobros show off a gas-powered trike designed to look like a Green Machine Big Wheels. I kind of want one. Unfortunately, they cost $75,000 and can only get up to 50MPH. ... / Continue →

    Inb4 Bebop was always may favorite toy too. You think that dead boar (it's not even a warthog!) is happier knowing thousands of Ninja Turtle fans on the internet think he's way cooler looking than just a regular ol' dead boar's head, or do you think he's wishing his dignity ha... / Continue →

    Note: Easier on your peepers full-res version HERE. Can you name them all? I did. Granted I had no clue who half of them were and just started naming them things like Stinky and Roro, but my cat told me those would be good things to call them and he's never wrong. Except wh... / Continue →

    First of all, it's not really a traditional tractor beam. Not that there even IS a traditional tractor beam, because fully functional tractor beams don't exist. It's just not the kind of tractor beam you may have seen in Star Tracks before. And yes, I did use that 'beam me u... / Continue →

    Energy: it's good to have (just not 70 energy drinks worth). Huffing things: it's fun to do. So naturally, huffable caffeine supplements are a no-brainer. Each Aeroshot contains 100mg of finely-powdered caffeine (~a large cup of coffee) and looks enough like a shotgun shell ... / Continue →

    Because, the internet, that's why, Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses is a real website that exists where you can submit a picture of someone with a Ninja Turtle face for a nose. Now I've been looking at mine in the mirror for like ten minutes but I can't decide which turtle to make i... / Continue →

    Sure, we've all seen magic floating superconductors in action (even before yesterday!), but have you ever seen them USED TO MAKE A REAL LIFE HOVERBOARD CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING A HUMAN?! Because this is what that is. "OLD -- already seen it." Wow, you've basically seen everythi... / Continue →

    This is a creepy as f*** 3-D graphics Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth bust created by DeviantARTist TranzorZ3D. As you can, ol' Bottlecaps here would look like a nightmare in real life. God, could you even imagine what it would be like to kiss lips like those? *daydreaming* ... / Continue →

    Your kids: they're great for LARPing practice. Seen here proudly sporting his family crest (which may or may yes be a stylized Bavarian creme donut), 38-year old Fremont Seay was arrested after forcing his 16-year old daughter to mock sword fight with him in their front yard (... / Continue →

    PR2, the electricity-stealing, pool-hustling, beer-fetching, male-pleasuring, cookie-baking, grocery-packing robot can now pick up dog turds. Possible to make you cookies with later. DUM-DUM-DUM! While you can't hear it in the video, Graspy begins its task by declaring in a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a new iPhone 4S getting blasted with 50-caliber armor piercing incediary rounds (just like the title of the article said!). Admittedly, I was impressed with how well the phone stayed together. The hole punched through it almost looks surgical. The scar fro... / Continue →

    Magnets: Now I'M not even sure how they work. Just hit the jump and watch the video, you won't regret it. My brain actually exploded out of my skull halfway through and was all, "finally, I'm free!" which quickly turned to "oh SHIT, look at this dump!" and regretted leaving.... / Continue →

    Desktop worthy full-res picture HERE and interior dash HERE. In 1995 Texas entrepreneur Stephen Wynne bought the rights to the Delorean Motor Company and a warehouse of the manufacturer's original parts. Since then, the company has been repairing old models and making custom ... / Continue →

    Don't lie -- you don't hate the meat packing! A New Yorker is filing for divorce after verifying his wife was cheating on him and not where she said she was by checking her location using the iPhone's new 'Find my Friends' app. Wait -- there's a 'Find my Friends' app?! *runn... / Continue →

    Look at this guy. You wanna look like this guy? Of course not, nobody in their right mind (or even a zombie's!!!!1) would. Even he doesn't want to, but we've all gotta play with the cards we're dealt (or whisper to the dealer you have a gun). This is a $15 beanie with two r... / Continue →

    This are the cartoon depictions of the 15 people you'll see at every geek convention. Are they accurate? I have no idea -- the only convention I've ever been to involved heavy drinking and passing out in a hot car before the doors even opened. And did my friends leave me the... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to watch a video of two turtles duking it out with lightsabers? Today's your lucky day! Just got fired and found out your girlfriend left you? Today's the worst day of your life! But remember: when one door closes, it usually rattles my entire apartment like a f... / Continue →

    This is a custom made Boba Fett viking helmet. It combines Boba's futuristic bounty hunter styling with the traditional horns of a viking helmet. I tried to reach Hägar the Horrible for comment, but his wife Helga wouldn't let me talk to him because she put him in the dogho... / Continue →

    Because who would've guessed naming a group of giant radio telescopes the 'very large array' wouldn't inspire awe and wonder in our nation's youth and make them give a damn about space, the National Science Foundation is holding a contest to rename the Astronomical Alienfinder.... / Continue →

    Because there should be a record player for every budget and the $19,000, $64,000 and $300,000 price-points were already covered, here's a $150,000 option. HAHA, recession. The Onedof One Degree Of Freedom turntable was designed by NASA award winning aerospace engineer Alek... / Continue →

    Because the new iPhone's SIRI personal assistant was practically made for novelty purposes, here she is responding to a bunch of bull$h!t. I honestly don't know who to feel sorrier for: SIRI, or the people taking the time to try to come up with the things to ask her. Kidding,... / Continue →

    This is the most complete dinosaur skeleton found to date, with a whopping 98% of its bones preserved. In comparison, the most complete t-rex ever found is only 80% complete. Well, 75% after the museum discovers the theft. You think I don't spoon a dino bone to sleep every n... / Continue →
