    Ronald Page is a man. A man who discovered a casino ATM that allowed him to continually overdraw his account towards chips until he'd managed to rack up over $1.5-million. So what did he do? What any other f***ing idiot would -- lost it all in a gambling binge. Convicted ... / Continue →

    Because what good is a cheat sheet if it's not the length of a school bus, some cheater in Kazakhstan was caught with this 35-footer WITH OVER 25,000 FACTS PRINTED ON IT during a university entrance exam. Obviously, he won't be entering that university and will be forced to jo... / Continue →

    This is a series of books carved into amazing little landscapes by artist and obvious hater of literacy, Guy Laramee. I'm pretty sure I've seen them going around the internet before, but I'm gonna be Frank with you. Kidding, that's my brother. I'll be honest instead: it's Fr... / Continue →

    Remember Tadao Cern's 'Blow Job' photography series of extreme wind-blown faces? Well this is the minute-and-a-half video of the face-blowing in action. Not gonna lie, it's GOOD. Especially how some of the models' eyes keep flapping open when they want them shut. Man, that... / Continue →

    Australian electronics retailer Kogan has started imposing a 6.8% tax on customers still using Internet Explorer 7 on account of "the amount of time required to make web pages appear correctly" with the browser. Of course, if you're actually still using Internet Explorer 7, yo... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for waterproof watches that envisions an underwater bar where everybody wears diving helmets and carries around drinks with super-long straws so they can snake them up to their lips. What fun! Just kidding, what watered-down drinks. Get it? WATERED down... / Continue →

    Some eagle-eyed lunatic noticed that one of the heads on a spike (above) in the 10th episode of the first season of Game of Thrones looked like former President George W. Bush. Personally, I didn't notice it, but I also didn't watch the entire season in slow-motion for the sex... / Continue →

    Seen here hanging out with the shoes of his fallen enemies, a half-ton scrap metal Transformer shows off his wine-storing capabilities. Not bad, Optimus Wino, but let's see how well you store my foot up your ass! HI-YA! Okay, that might need a tetanus shot. Per Craigslist a... / Continue →

    Seen here wearing shoes so pointy my butt is cringing at the very thought of a kick from one, a woman demonstra-- "Dammit GW, that was definitely a fart." IT WAS A CRINGE. You still might want to pull your shirt up over your nose though. This is a video of a woman demonstrat... / Continue →

    These are Jetovators. Jetovators are like the water-jetpacks we've seen in the past, except you ride them like a motorcycle. You know, because some guys like to feel that power between their legs. Personally, I'm happy with the feeling of my penis ping-ponging back and forth... / Continue →

    This is a fully posabe (he even has one of those clear support arms so he even perform wacky shit) Link action figure based on his appearance in Skyward Sword. It'll cost around $50 when it's released this October and is gonna look FANTASTIC on display in my foyer. "I thought... / Continue →

    This is a shot sent to me by Geekologie reader LUCAS R. of a Justice League toy collection sold in his native Argentina. They got one out of four right. I can't say I'm surprised, as I'm sure I could find the same thing here at the local Dollar Store, I just don't go there an... / Continue →

    This is an Alien vs. Predator themed wedding cake created by the Little Cherry Cake Company for a couple who is obviously crazy. There's even an inscription at the bottom of the cake that reads, "You may now decapitate the bride." Ha -- and they say romance is dead. No word ... / Continue →

    This is a Salta brand beer vending machine modded by creative agency Ogilvy to only dispense a beer if it gets hit hard enough from the side (as gauged by the light-up meter on the front). The concept was that rugby fans would be more inclined to buy the beer if there was a...p... / Continue →

    This is a knight's armor hoodie created by Chadwick John Dillon, whose name even sounds kind of medieval. My medieval name? Sir Reacharound the Dragonlayer. "You mean Dragonslayer? I do not. *wink* Chadwick plans on selling the hoodies in his Etsy shop soon, but until the... / Continue →

    This is the $50,000 Barbecue Dining Boat from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer. What do you get for your $50,000? SPOILER: Not your money's worth. It's not even glass-bottomed for ogling mermaids! You might as well be cooking on a paddle boat. Just throw a grill on this par... / Continue →

    This is a Portal themed short called 'High Velocity' in the style of a home video. It...was really well done. Granted not as well-done as my roommate's steak at the restaurant last night, but that thing was BLACK. When he tried cutting it and it just crumbled into coal dust.... / Continue →
  • June 12, 2012
    This is the new cover of DC Comic's Catwoman #52, which is drawing criticism because it looks like she's just an ass with tits and a head. Oh right, I forgot -- because realistic human anatomy has been such a staple in comics lately. What's the big deal? If Catwoman wants to... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of Monkey Orchids (Dracula simia, vampire monkey -- like those creepy f***ers from The Wizard of Oz). They're found in the highest rainforests of Ecuador and Peru and uncannily resemble little monkey faces. Why? Presumably (and this is just a personal... / Continue →

    This is a video of Utah State University's 'Ascending Aggies' demonstrating the latest incarnation of their vacuum-powered wall-climbing gloves. As you'll see from watching, they work pretty damn well. Plus are near silent. Kidding, they sound like a jet taking off on an air... / Continue →

    Certainly brings new meaning to 'cocktail dresses', amirite? No? Nevermind then. Seen here looking terrified at whatever she sees off camera (presumably a dog f***ing a tripod), a model wears a dress made from fermented wine. Mmmm, I bet that smells goooooood. Micro'be' fe... / Continue →

    Okay, so maybe it's actually LEDs and mirrors. This is the homemade Portal "loop" created by Florian Aich using two mirrors backed with colored LEDs and mounted across from each other on opposite walls. He even uses a portal gun to "shoot" the lights on. Man, I remember growi... / Continue →

    This is a Star Trek insignia engagement ring hand-crafted by Etsy selller VaLaJewellery and available for the low, low price of $500. It's so cheap because it's actually a white sapphire in the setting, not a diamond. It's perfect for the Trekkie girl in your life that you th... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D animation called Super Modern Mario Bros. featuring the first level from the original game 'modernized'. It's cute enough to spend a minute watching. Two minutes? I don't know, can't say I would have made it to the end of two minutes without skipping ahead. Of... / Continue →
  • June 11, 2012
    This is small gallery of Nintendo characters (plus Pac-Man) made out of Rubik's Cubes. Allegedly all the cubes were solved into the color combination they needed to be, although I suspect they printed colored stickers and MADE them what they needed to be. Of course that's jus... / Continue →

    Seen here looking fresh to death on the first day of summer school, a guy models Hot Topic's $35 DC Comics Batman Logo Hooded Backpack. Admittedly, I kind of want one. But only to wear arms-free, supported by nothing but my head and neck. "That sounds like a terrible idea." ... / Continue →

    This is gallery of Middle Earth's Moria faithfully recreated to scale in Minecraft. No clue how long it took, how many people it took, or what they could have accomplished if they were doing something more productive, all I know is it's pretty impressive and I couldn't have do... / Continue →

    This is an 8' x almost 3' fabric mural of the entire Legend of Zelda overworld for sale by Etsy seller Packmania. And they're only $40 (plus $15 shipping)! How can they be selling them so cheap? My guess is kill the old man who was hoarding them in his cave. "It's dangerous... / Continue →
