    BOOM -- faceful of privates! Diesel is selling these $34 (A PAIR!) boxer briefs with designs from DC Comics superheroes (plus the Joker, who they actually call a hero). They all suck (except the Batman ones, which I must have) and the designs hardly look worth the money it co... / Continue →

    Picture sufficiently related: bones. I've broken my left (good) arm twice doing things (unspeakable ones!) I shouldn't have, and now I've got a plate and a bunch of screws and shit in there that set off the metal detector at the airport and get me pulled aside for a groping (w... / Continue →

    'Find His P0rn' is a website you can visit on your boyfriend/husband/roommate/son's computer that will, wait for it -- FIND HIS P0RN. That way you can confront him about whatever disturbing fetish videos you found and have the awkwardest conversation of your sure-to-be-short-l... / Continue →

    This is a newly discovered species of Yeti (NOT Batman) crab. It's similar to the other hairy-armed Yeti crabs except this one grows edible bacteria on its arms by methodically waving them around in front of deep sea methane vents. And speaking of deep sea methane vents: blue... / Continue →

    This is Traxxas' new 1/7-scale electric XO-1, the first ready-to-run (no assembly required) R/C car capable of doing a real (not scale) 100MPH fresh out of the box. But you're gonna need an actual raceway to drive the thing, because a Wal-Mart parking lot isn't gonna cut it at... / Continue →

    This is a picture of an AT-ST treehouse some kids' Star Wars loving father built them so they'd have a place to hide nudey magazines and play with fire. Except there's not really much tree left so it's actually more of a stumphouse. Like something a badger would live in. "Ba... / Continue →

    These are a couple animated gif comic book covers created by Kerry Callen. Because if there's one thing comic books have been missing, it's fragrance samples animated covers. Follow the link to Kerry's site for Justice League and Batman ones. Kerry's Website via Animated C... / Continue →

    Jason Giddings' Kickstarter project to develop multi-touch glass keyboards and mice has been fully funded and he expects to have them to market as early as April of next year. You can still donate $250 for a keyboard , $150 for a mouse or $350 for both though. Or you can just... / Continue →

    No, I don't wanna wrestle. This is a rendering of a "lifelike" Doctor Zoidberg created by artist Jared Krichevsky. If the doctor would actually look like this in real life is anybody's guess, but you back over him with my truck and I'll start melting butter in the bathtub jus... / Continue →

    Because you're a commenter on the internet, I should probably already assume you're an expert on everything and have known the giant weta of New Zealand is the world's heaviest insect for quite some time. "It's true, we used to catch them on family vacation." YOU ARE A DIRTY ... / Continue →

    This is a series of minimalistic X-Men posters by artist Nicholas Hyde. These and a bunch of other geeky/pop-culture posters (you can see Harry Potter and LOTR after the jump) are available for sale over at Nicholas' Etsy store if you're interested. My love? My love is not f... / Continue →

    North pole, we have a problem. This is a video of some clumsy-ass Santa impersonator attempting to rappel down to his throne at a Florida mall when his fake beard gets caught on his harness, tearing it and his Santa hat off and ruining Christmas for countless children. All th... / Continue →

    Remember the dipshit who drove the Bugatti into a Texas lagoon to "avoid hitting a pelican" except we all know there wasn't one because brobro never would've guessed in a million years some other idiot that thought he was driving a Lamborghini was filming the whole scene? Well... / Continue →

    This is a short animation of a re-imagined Super Mario Bros. player select screen in gritty 3-D with an environmental twist by digital artist Jonathan Fletcher. Obviously, I would play the hell out of that if it were real. Also, have nightmares. "Nightmares or wet dreams?" ... / Continue →

    This is a fake Zombie Attack Barbie designed by Sarah Anne Langton to encourage young girls to hone their undead survival skills. Because if there's one thing that won't save you from a zombie uprising, it's just being pretty. As you can see, she comes with a beret, one-piece... / Continue →

    Similar but slightly different than the other versions of airless tires we've seen, Bridgestone is hard at work trying to bring an airless, puncture-proof tire to market. Aaaaaaaand this is what they've got so far. Puke green rims FTW! The idea is similar to Michelin's Tweel... / Continue →

    As a guy who spends 10+ hours a day with a laptop resting on his already unimpressive genitals, this is pretty serious news. Kidding, I can't have children. Get it? Women just find me so unattractive! I touched a titty one time but it was a friend of my older sister and I t... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a teaser-trailer for a Bioshock fan-film coming out summer of 2013. At first I wasn't that impressed at all because, f***, it's just a guy playing dead on a beach with a big daddy doll, but there's a single second of ultra-fast clips at the end. That...pique... / Continue →

    This is a video of Geekologie Reader Simon spending a lot of time and effort to build a 12-pound warhammer for a friend's birthday, making him a far better friend than any of mine. "Because you don't have any?" GOOD ONE, DINGLEBERRY. Did you come up with that one all by your... / Continue →

    This is a "life-size" (~5'8" if she were standing upright) mural of Samus Aran made from painted Nintendo game cartridges from different systems. It was originally commissioned by used-game retailer JJGames, but now they're selling it on eBay. Presumably because they realized... / Continue →

    Your mannequin: he needs an ass and a belt. This is a backpack with two integrated 4-quart beverage containers and really long straws. The mannequin in the picture? He filled his with tea. I'm gonna fill mine with milk and cookies. No, no I'm not. I'm gonna fill one side ... / Continue →

    Because LEGO and Christmas go together like stirring peas & corn into instant mashed potatoes (aka shitter's pie), a 33-ft LEGO Christmas tree was erected in London's St Pancras (the patron saint of internal organs) station. And this is it. It's tall and plastic. Me? I'm sh... / Continue →

    These are two videos from Skyrim. The first is the tastefully decorated home of an in-game serial killer, with body parts artfully strewn about the place. The second is 100 different ways to die in the game, a lot of which look suspiciously like running the kill command when ... / Continue →

    Researchers at Dartmouth College have developed a metric to apply to altered images to address how much Photoshopping a picture has undergone, in an effort to provide more truth in advertising and prevent unhealthy body image issues. Hey, I'm 5'4", 240-lbs and cool with that. ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of QBO the robot seeing himself in a mirror, then learning to recognize himself. Because if there's one thing the world needs, it's vain robots. Ugh, you probably think this song is about you, don't you, QBO? Haha, IT IS! *cranks volume* ♫ I don't wan... / Continue →

    This is a video of two buttholes in C5 and C6 Corvettes trying to race each other off the line at a red light in Texas over the Thanksgiving holiday. SPOILER: It ends with a crash. But it begins and middles with a guy chewing his gum so f***ing loud you'd swear he's trying to... / Continue →

    This is a clip from what might be my new favorite television show of a trio of accordionists playing the Super Mario Bros. theme in Bulgaria. I know -- they have Super Mario Bros. in Bulgaria, I'm as shocked as you are. Hit the jump and get your beep-boop-beep-boo-boo-bee-boo... / Continue →

    Worst sex explanation ever. This is an hour-and-a-half interview between Stephen Colbert and famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. There's a lot of knowledge to be gained from watching it, so I suggest you make a pair of secret computer-viewing glasses tonight and come ba... / Continue →

    This is a video of a pair of magic computer-viewing glasses made by removing the polarized film from an LCD computer monitor and applying it to a regular pair of spectacles. That way only you can see your monitor. Ooooooor get fired for staring at a blank screen eight hours a... / Continue →

    Because what good is science if you can't use it to kill a whole lot of people, evil doctors have successfully genetically modified the avian flu to be much, much deadlier. *coughing* OH GOD I HAVE IT, DON'T I?! I have been peeing a lot of blood... Inside a Dutch medical fa... / Continue →

    I'm not sure if Little Rooster is supposed to be a euphemism for a little peener, but it IS a vibrator we're talking about so yes it absolutely is. The Little Rooster is a real alarm clock for ladies that you go to bed wearing inside your underwear with its little vibrating en... / Continue →

    A mom in Australia is asking the internet for help after a two-year addiction to World of Warcraft has turned her "normal" sports-loving son into a school-skipping, hole-in-the-wall punching rage machine that she's afraid to even stand up to because he's bigger than her. *whip... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robotic starfish developed by scientits (not changing it) at Harvard. It's powered by pneumatics and can squeeze under a door, crawl up the a leg of a bed, and be hugging your face before you finally wake from that dream where all your teeth fall out and y... / Continue →

    This is Portal's credits theme 'Still Alive' being performed on a quartet of old 3.5" floppy drives. Why? Because that's all old floppy drives are good for anymore. Well, that, and selling door to door at an old folks' home as Blu-Ray players. Yes, yes I am your grandson. ... / Continue →

    This is a giant triforce sculpture carved out of the side of a mountain snow (I just looked for the first time). It was created by the two beer-swigging goons in the picture, both of whom look suspiciously like guys I went to high school with that made fun of me for playing Ma... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like my worst nightmare, a rowdy crowd gathers outside a Wal-Mart on Black Friday, ready and willing to trample a fellow bargain hunter to death over $5 Blu-Rays. Enter an undisclosed lady who pepper-sprayed a group of shoppers to get a leg-up on an XBox deal... / Continue →

    Seen here staring at his peen instead of the screen, a man demonstrates a London bar's new urinal-based video game system while Beatrix Kiddo watches from above with a katana sword. Please Beatrix -- please don't kill my bill! He's little and couldn't hurt anyone! The featur... / Continue →

    You know how many mornings I've woken up and had zero clue what I did the night before? Every single one. But now allegedly sober people are claiming to be sending text messages in their sleep. Wow, can't say I'm surprised. Or good looking. :/ Dr Cunnington described slee... / Continue →
