    This is a glass collaboration piece from Elbo Glass and Glass Munky. It's a pipe that looks like a microscope. You just put the sample (weed) you want to study (smoke) into the bowl, add a little fire, and TA-DA -- you're experimenting. WITH DRUGS. Be careful folks, marijua... / Continue →

    This is an hour and a half documentary from the Animal Planet that none of you are going to watch, highlighting evidence that mermaids are real. Namely, a recording of mermaids talking to dolphins, as well as the body of one recovered from the stomach of a great white. I'd be... / Continue →

    This is a set of $30 "Police Box" door decals meant to resemble Dr. Who's TARDIS. Please note: THEY DO NOT MAKE YOUR DOOR BLUE. They're just the four stickers. You're gonna have to paint it yourself if you want a more authentic look. Alternatively, rip your front door off t... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it, this is a VERY WORTWHILE video of an autotuned Mr. Rogers doing his thing. If you spent your youth watching Mr. Rogers, you'll appreciate how awesome it is. If you didn't spend your youth watching Mr. Rogers, you're probably some lawless f*ck-u... / Continue →

    This is the ZipFlyer, an 87MPH zipline with "a vertical drop of almost 2,000 feet (600 meters) and a distance of almost 6,000 feet (1.8 kilometers)." According to the company responsible, that makes it the steepest and longest in the world although THIS ONE gets up to 100MPH, ... / Continue →

    This are the Hairy Panties from Tarty Farts Nutty Tarts. They have a big ol' bush printed on the crotch. Actually, it's not THAT big -- I've seen bigger, but I also lived through the 70's. "No, you didn't." Fine, but I've seen some, how can I put this delicately -- HARDCORE... / Continue →

    Man. Man oh man oh man. This is a video of Dan Chen's 'Last Moments Robot', a robot designed to comfort a person as their final bars of life-force flow out of them. You know, because that's not the saddest thing I've ever heard. WARNING: crippling depression follows. Once ... / Continue →

    Okay so it doesn't actually change everything, that was a lie. I didn't get drunk last night. That...was also a lie. I'm the world's greatest lover. Now that -- that's just the God's honest truth and you can ask my girlfriend about last night if you don't believe me. "He p... / Continue →

    This is the RinserBrush, a toothbrush from Amron Experimental that turns your faucet into a water fountain provided you have decent water pressure and not the sad trickle I get in my apartment. Do you know how hard it is to shower in this dump? SPOILER: Impossible (I only hav... / Continue →

    A group of American and Italian scientists recently painted a robotic fish to resemble a pregnant female zebra fish, then placed it in a tank of real zebra fish. Those fish all swam right up to it because fish are stupid. And I'm not just saying that because mine used to jump... / Continue →

    This is a Star Wars themed LEGO build of MC Escher's iconic 'House of Stairs'. I can only look at it in five-second increments though or I get all dizzy and discombobulated. Which way is up? Which way is down? Is this vom on my shirt fresh or from last night? Will I be jud... / Continue →

    This is a video of TheHumanTim performing a rock version of the theme from LaVar Burton's Reading Rainbow. Not gonna lie, it could have used some Geekologie Writer vocals. *clearing throat* ♫ Butterfly in the sky I can go twice as high Take a look It's in a book A Reading R... / Continue →

    This is a ceiling fan created by artist Raphaele Iaennello using a 1/6 scale Hughes MD 500 helicopter mounted upside down to the ceiling. Obviously, it's far cooler than my ceiling fan, which isn't a ceiling fan at all, but a box fan in my apartment window that I sometimes tal... / Continue →

    On the left, a picture of port Ohara in Isumi City, Japan last week. On the right, a picture of the port this week, with bonus 200 tons of dead sardines washed ashore. Now I'm not saying Spongebob didn't make Poseidon's Crabby Patty the way he likes it, but you know how he ge... / Continue →

    This is a flux capacitor chest tattoo. I'm not sure how brobro plans on getting up to 88MPH, but if it involves a vehicle I probably would have made that the time machine instead of my body. This seems dangerous. What happens if you fall asleep on an airplane and wake up in ... / Continue →

    Yaaaar -- set sail for smores! That...is a nice setup. To the right of the ship you can even see some swords for roasting hot dogs/marshmallows/squirrels. So yeah, this pirate ship fire pit: you want it, I want it, let's go steal it. Then we can alternate ownership on weeke... / Continue →

    Tactus Technology has developed a user interface for smart phones/other touchscreen devices that can instantly create physically raised buttons based on the current screen. That way it's easier to text/navigate. Plus some people just like touching buttons! Hey, what's this ... / Continue →

    This is a small series (three pics) of superhero symbols created on a woman's lips by photographer Jonathan Knowles and makeup artist Celine Nonon. From what I read, I'm pretty sure they're real and not Photochopped. Also, there was no model listed, but presumably it's one of... / Continue →

    Dutch company Mars One has announced its intentions to start a Martian colony in 2023 with the arrival of its first inhabitants, four astronauts who have agreed to live the rest of their lives there. Every two years after that an additional two astronauts will be sent to grow ... / Continue →

    Because you missed it, here are several shots from NASA's Solar Dynamics Laboratory telescope highlighting Venus' transit of the sun yesterday afternoon/evening. "Where were you when Venus transited the sun in 2012?" people will ask in the future. And how -- how will you resp... / Continue →

    This is a video of some colored water droplets quickly rolling their asses off a paper surface covered with a superhydrophobic powder. Superhydrophobics man, I don't GET them. Like, if two dudes want to kiss each other, that's their business. If deciding who can make out wit... / Continue →

    This is a rap about The Game of Thrones from Dominik Omega and The Arcitype using a remixed version of the theme song. It's really good. Of course if you don't like rap music you probably won't like it, so no need to leave a comment if that's the case. Otherwise you're gonna... / Continue →

    WriteWithImages is a website that turns text into images using the first Google Image search result for each word typed. Unfortunately, "the" always gets you that creepy 'Art of the Devil II' movie poster. Which is EXACTLY why I just changed the filename for the picture I use... / Continue →

    Fantasy and speculative fiction author Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday at the age of 91. Best known for his dystopian classic Farheinheit 451, Ray never obtained a driver's license in his life. I admire him for that. Especially if he still drove anyways. Despite the nume... / Continue →

    I got this tip both advertising the video as a fan-film AND as an actual teaser trailer for an upcoming high definition Wii U release of Majora's Mask. I'm gonna say it's just a fan-made trailer though, that way I don't feel pressured to buy a Wii U. It's kinda sad when the o... / Continue →

    Scientists recently unearthed two 16th century vampire skeletons in Bulgaria that were buried with iron stakes through their hearts. Why the medieval vampire hunters didn't use garlic marinaded steaks is beyond me, but I suspect it's because I'm dumb and have the brain of a di... / Continue →

    This is HBO's official $30,000 (plus $1,800 shipping) replica of the Iron Throne from the Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, it's made out of fiberglass and not real swords. BOOOOOOOOOO! *rushing castle with a pitchfork* On the show, the Iron Throne was constructed by Aegon I T... / Continue →

    Dammit -- next time tweak your nips before taking a pic! This is a picture of Geekologie reader Wesley's fresh Stephen Hawking chest tattoo that he so lovingly dropped on Geekologie's Facebook page. Now I know what you're thinking, "That guy has a naked lady riding a dinosau... / Continue →

    This is a how-to guide to comics for beginners made by two of my good friends (and you thought I didn't have any!). In the video, Comic Book Girl 19 (I know her real name but I won't tell you because then she'll tell you mine and I'll be f***ed. Oooooor just way more popular)... / Continue →

    This is a series of soon to be released limited edition Reeboks based on various characters from the Marvel universe. Unfortunately, they decided against making a Dr. Strange pair, so I'll be saving my money. I only wear flip-flops anyways. Flip-flops and penny loafers. Exc... / Continue →

    Seen here talking shit on an R5-D4 droid thanks to my sick Microsoft Paint skills, a parakeet does its best R2-D2 impression. My best R2-D2 impression? BEEP BOOP BZZZ ZIPPY ZIPPY. "That was terrible." Yeah, most parents don't want to pay me after performing at their kid's b... / Continue →

    Note: Guy with gun at 2:00. Monopolizing on the recent outbreaks of undead, this is a video of a guy chasing the hell out of people pretending to be a brain-eating zombie. He gets them pretty good. Now I'm not saying I would have shot the dude, but I wouldn't have because I'... / Continue →

    Bananas, get it? Because people slip on them and hurt themselves. Just kidding, that's not why, but I've already forgotten what I was talking about. If you eat too many of them they'll give you runny stools? No clue. Man, I got DRUNK last night. This is a bunch of differen... / Continue →

    This is a video of the homemade Gir (from Invader Zim) robot Geekologie reader Dorothy's boyfriend (now fiance) made to propose to her. This isn't the actual proposal though, just Gir showing off his animations. Also, who knew Cinnamon Toast Crunch was called Croque Cannelle ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jorge Sprave demonstrating his latest and greatest way to accidentally kill/maim yourself, the throwing-knife shooting slingshot. Because why waste all your precious arm-power throwing throwing knives when you can shoot throwing knives? Not to mention it f... / Continue →

    Tomorrow afternoon (USA time) Venus will cross transit the sun and be visible from earth for several hours. Just make sure to use the old 'poke a hole in a piece of cardboard' trick and watch the shadow on the ground so you don't go blind. Save that for masturbating. Becau... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy dancing to Michael Jackson while making cotton candy. He...is a pro. I thought the guy who always makes my burritos at the local Taco Bell was good at what he does, but he never dances. This guy dances. It's mesmerizing. And if you think I'm joking... / Continue →

    This is a short video of the Game of Thrones theme being performed on squeaky toys. And, for the record, yes, it will drive your dogs f***ing crazy. Einstein just ran around in circles whimpering while Chloe stood up on her back paws and grabbed one of the speakers off the de... / Continue →

    These are some Zelda, Pokemon and Portal themed gasmasks from DeviantARTist TwoHornsUnited. Me? I have a new German-issued gasmask just in case shit hits the fan. "Be prepared," my dad always told me. Also, "Stop riding your bike inside the house." Why on earth you'd need ... / Continue →

    Remember the first set of Game of Thrones pizzas? Well the same guys who made those celebrated the season finale with another set of deadly deliciousness, this time creating the Bolton, Stannis Baratheon, Greyjoy and Tyrell sigils. God, I just wanna stack them all in a big pi... / Continue →

    This is a trippy video of some guy doing yo-yo tricks with a motion-tracked yo-yo so it's always the focus. You'll just have to watch it to see what I'm talking about, I'm terrible at explaining things. "Like the time you tried to say babies come from women's butts?" I SAW A... / Continue →

    Because what better way to start a Monday than with some weird/depressing news, Dutch artist Bart Jansen had his cat Orville (after the Wright brother) taxidermied and turned into a flying quadrocopter after it was hit by a car. You know, because that's how you show respect fo... / Continue →
