    I know, the screencaps I so lovingly slapped together wound up looking like shit and offer little to no explanation of what's going on. That was my bad. Basically, photographers took a whole bunch of cameras, mounted them on a long horizontal platform, then had them all snap ... / Continue →

    Anatoly Moskvina, a 45-year old Russian man who can fluently speak 13 languages and considered by many an all around genius, was discovered to be sharing his apartment with the skeletal remains of 26 women he dug up and dressed like dolls. He was busted after his parents came ... / Continue →

    This is a kid posing with his homemade Wolverine claws. He says he made them for $5 out of nothing but a couple old pairs of thrift store ice skates, a couple nails, a couple bolts, and access to an acetylene torch and bench grinder. Really -- and for only $5?! You sure you ... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it, this is a video of a shitty high school science teacher dropping a goldfish in liquid nitrogen, then returning it to water where it "reanimates" itself. The goldfish survived due to the Leidenfrost Effect, which allowed this REAL scientist to di... / Continue →

    This is a picture of Flickr user clickflashwhirr (links to all her portraits), who's taken a picture of herself in the exact same position for over 500 days. Then, artist/possible stalker Tiemen Rapati took those photos and combined them into a single one by "[counting] the in... / Continue →

    The Lumi Nube is a conceptual pillow with integrated strips of LED tape that light up so you can...I dunno, do whatever the hell you'd do with a glowing pillow. "OMG, I'm gonna have my girlfriend sit on t--" Stop it right there, pervert. I don't even wanna hear what kind of ... / Continue →

    Let's take another one -- this time with less eagle hands. An international team of mock astronauts emerged from their windowless trailer "spaceship" yesterday after being locked away for 520-days during a simulated flight to Mars and back. Damn, a spaceship with wood panelin... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a girl on a surfboard watching whales feed off the coast of Santa Cruz, California when she almost becomes a snack herself. Wonderful news, really *adds whales to 'list to things to be afraid of in the ocean' between Spongebob's friend Patrick and fish... / Continue →

    Jetpacks: in the future our kids will fly them to school. Well, your kids anyways -- I'm not having any. You see, despite how bottom-of-the-barrel-roll dumb I might be, I'm still smart enough to know that, while there's no question I'd make the world's greatest father, I'd ma... / Continue →

    Go to Google, type in 'do a barrel roll'. The page barrel rolls. This isn't rocket surgery, folks. Google and Google (this one should auto-roll for you) Thanks to Tarkin, Boogie Jon and bb, who don't use Google for anything but reading the autofill responses when they're bo... / Continue →

    This is a video of a kid's mom refusing to buy him more Pokemon cards at Toys R Us, and the kid losing his Pokemind in the middle of the store. At first I thought it was fake because why would you be film yourself talking at the checkout of a toy store, then I realized the kid... / Continue →

    I have brown eyes. And they're romantic as f***. Men and women have actually gotten lost in these peepers for days. Kidding, they're like gazing into two twin @$$holes. And now a California doctor claims he could turn them blue with a quick 20-second cosmetic laser surgery.... / Continue →

    This is a robotic spider developed by the Fraunhofer Institute *adds to shit list* and designed to locate gas leaks *brap!* or provide recon in radiated areas unsafe for humans. Unsafe for humans?! There's nothing too unsafe for a human if you're paying enough. One time I s... / Continue →

    Napolean Dynamite deleted scenes. This is a video of a girl with a jian sword and her brother/lover from the same mother with a butterfly knife (plus sweet haircut!) "dancing" while their grandma sips a Budweiser and watches her grandchildren almost stab the butterball of a fa... / Continue →

    Lights -- camera -- plastic! This is series of photographs by 21-year old artist Alex Eylar who faithfully recreated scenes from 15 different movies using LEGO blocks and minifigs. Which movies? I'm not gonna tell you. Just kidding: Harry Potter, The Shining, James Bond, Th... / Continue →

    This is a 16-foot Burmese python found in the Florida everglades that had recently eaten an 80-pound deer before being discovered and killed by the good ol' boys in the picture. The Burmese python is a non-native (it's name was a hint!) invasive species in Florida originally e... / Continue →

    Seen here looking exactly like the kind of person you'd expect to shoot a neighbor after accusing them of telepathic threats, 53-year old batshit stupid Michael Selleneil stares down a police department camera for trying to steal his soul. The suspect insisted to investigators... / Continue →

    Facedrink is an unfortunately real $3 energy drink that claims to provide "social" energy. WTF is social energy? SPOILER: Regular energy, dumbf*** with the Facedrink in your hand! Plus it gives you cancer.* Regardless, I just ordered a case with the hopes of meeting some ne... / Continue →

    Ezio Auditore called -- he said you better forward the schematics to da Vinci for him. This is a professional looking wrist-mounted crossbow entirely homemade by A+ shop student Patrick Priebe. Entirely homemade by the Geekologie Writer? This lasagna. "I can see the Stouffe... / Continue →

    Smog: the breakfast of broken dreams. This is the trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5, hot off the press. It looks pretty promising and takes place here in (a fictional) Los Angeles, so chances are high Rockstar will make me a non-playable character. Now listen, because this is i... / Continue →

    This is a rap song and music video about The Legend of Zelda called 'I'm Questing'. It's...actually not that bad. They could have found a better looking Link though. Me, I'm talking about me. I'm actually a dead ringer for the Link from the original game. "As wide as you a... / Continue →

    This is a conceptual chalkboard eraser that sucks in the dust from the board and makes new pieces of chalk with it. No clue how much dust it takes to actually create a fresh stick, but my guess is at least twice what it'd collect in a lifetime. As you erase the board, the Cha... / Continue →

    Inb4 cash for gonads. India, in an attempt to halt the country's exploding population, is offering cars, motorcycles, cash, televisions and blenders to men willing to have vasectomies. No word if the men receiving blenders will have to perform the operation themselves. The... / Continue →

    This is a tree knot that looks like a ninja turtle face. Somewhere in the woods right now Shredder is trying to set a pile of pine needles on fire with a magnifying glass and Smokey the Bear is all, "AAAAAAAH, WHAT'RE YOU DOING?!" Me? I'm regretting a lot of the decisions I m... / Continue →

    BO is right -- slap some Old Spice up in them pits! Seen here looking eerily human, Boston Dynamics' bipedal humanoid robot PETMAN has been upgraded with arms (capable of pushups!) and a smoother gait. Well thank God! If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a goofy-walking ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking exactly how I'd imagine the homemade guillotine constructed by a homeless man in the woods would look like, the bum-built guillotine responsible for severing its maker's arm pauses for a photo op. *holding up camera* Over here, over here -- by the deer skull... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Monta lives out in the boonies and doesn't decorate his house for Halloween because nobody would see it (plus houses out in the sticks are usually scary enough). So what did he do? Constructed a mechanical monster that hides in the trunk of his car and opens... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie Reader Owain's killer robot Halloween costume. He's particularly proud of it because he found a way to still drink while wearing a mask. Clever, Owain. I mean I'm still gonna kill you, but clever. Picture... / Continue →

    These is a robotic Venus flytrap. It attracts and traps flies using technology and NOT yellow sticky tape (although that does work too and I do let my nephew pick the flies out and play with them). You know the saying, "you can't kill flies with a spear?" Well that's a lie, ... / Continue →
