    Paper Passion is an actual $98 perfume that smells like books. I'm not sure if it makes you smell like new books, old books, or books with boogers between the pages, but who cares, I'd rather smell like any of those than AXE body-spray. I'm an Old Spice guy. "Jesus, how old ... / Continue →

    EDIT: Pint glasses, not shot glasses. Because there's absolutely nothing on the internet today but the heartbreaking story of a disturbed twenty-something who open fired on a theater full of Batman fans (my thoughts and prayers are with you, friends/family/Aurora community), h... / Continue →

    According to experts (or at least people calling themselves experts), the Grum botnet responsible for an estimated 35% of current spam email was brought down this week, making it significantly harder for guys like me to locate sketchy boner pill providers. Thank God I stocked ... / Continue →

    You might wanna get that hand looked at brobro. This is a custom skull-shaped purse made by Etsy seller Griffin Leather. It's the perfect size for toting around your favorite skull of a slain enemy. Also makes a great accessory for witches! Seriously ladies, enough with the... / Continue →

    These are D.HEDRAL underwear for dudes. They provide "angular support" to lift and tighten your butt cheeks. Depending on the your size, the underwear uses a different angle of lift to give you just the right amount of firmness. Me? I don't need no stinkin' underwear to make... / Continue →

    Man, I would stomp through there like Godzilla faster than you could say, "Nooooooo, please don't, I spent a lot of time on that!" This is LEGOmaniac Daniel Z's recreation of the Battle of the Hornburg at Helm's Deep. It, uh, looks pretty legit. Way better than my recreation... / Continue →

    Just saying, if that were me I would have had to censor the whole picture. "Because you're so ugly?" It's so bad I even make my surroundings look unbearable. One time I went to an auction and a Picasso sold for $1. So this dork Jonah Falcon who runs around bragging that he'... / Continue →

    This is an old (1957) government propaganda film showing the five men who volunteered to stand under a "low-yield" (two-kiloton) nuclear warhead detonated 10,000 feet above their heads. The video was created to calm the US populous and prove nuclear war is no big deal. The go... / Continue →

    Oh man, I used to have a buttplug with rainbow streamers coming out the end that made me look like a unicorn. I think my roommate stole it when he moved. You've probably already known about these forever because you're some kind of animal role-player in the bedroom, but you k... / Continue →

    Seen here being closely followed by a security guard to make sure brobro doesn't try to Tusken Raid the laundromat, a man pushes his son in a custom pod-racer baby stroller. It...looks a little front-heavy. Not unlike myself! *mashing man-tits together* I'm joking, I've def... / Continue →

    Because what better way to answer a call than with 650,000-volts to the side of the head, a young inventor is desperately trying to bring the Yellow Jacket iPhone case to market. In case you couldn't tell because you suck at context clues, it's an iPhone case with an integrate... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the sort of thing you hope to find hanging from the ceiling fan (plus a girl in your bed yelling "TURTLE POWER!"), a $35 custom-painted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bra from Etsy seller sceeneshoes stares at you with its googly eyes. Don't the eyeballs ki... / Continue →

    This is a three-minute supercut of my childhood idol Mr. Wizard being rude to children. Except not really, they're just all out of context. Say you walked into the middle of a conversation and all you heard was "the second biggest penis I've ever seen." Like, you don't know ... / Continue →

    This is a 152,455-piece, 677-pound, cross-section, cross-legged, wonk-eyed, 1:2 scale LEGO model of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 airplane engine. That's the same engine that powers Boeing's 787 but NOT choo-choo trains. Choo-choo trains run on the imaginations of children. It's t... / Continue →

    Seen here about to go for the idiot gold, a woman in a grape colored shirt prepares to tackle a Boston subway escalator with her motorized scooter. SPOILER: she does a terrible job. Like, I don't know if it's even possible to do worse. Sure I've seen videos of people in actu... / Continue →

    These are a pair of Toms handpainted with a Dark Knight Rises theme by Sarah Feldman (and designed by her boyfriend Brandon Phillips and photographed by friend Sarah Lang. That makes TWO Sarahs involved!). Personally, I don't like Toms because they always make me feel like a ... / Continue →

    An 18-year old in Taiwan passed away after playing Diablo III for 40 hours straight with no food or rest (just like the title says!). That is just too long. You should take a break at LEAST every 20 hours. You don't jump off the high-dive right after pounding a hotdog, do yo... / Continue →

    Come on bro, you have to admit you look creepy as f***. Please tell me you at least had a shirt on. Steve Mann, the self-proclaimed "father of computer vision systems" (and NOT "the father of a dino baby" like I want to be) was recently assaulted by three McDonalds employees ... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it (I'm slow like a turtle!), this is a video of a kid cosplaying as the spazzy QWOP runner from the iconic Flash game (links to game if this is your first day on the internet). He does GOOD. So good, in fact, I almost felt bad watching it at first... / Continue →

    Continuing with the theme of Batman boners, this is some 3-D street art painted in Madrid to celebrate the European premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. As you can see, the dingaling with the red hat is about to plummet to his death. And does anybody care? F*** NO, PUT SOME DA... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE where you can read all the green doohickies. What are those called? "Words." I don't like them! Also, somebody call Hoarders/My Strange Addiction. These are the contents of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak's backpack. Except this isn't even all of ... / Continue →

    This a smattering of the 600+ cosplay photos Norman Chan from over at Tested.com took during this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. I posted 25 random ones after the jump, but you should really go peruse the entire gallery. I just like, threw a dart at a dartboard and posted wha... / Continue →

    This is a 150-foot Dark Knight Rises ad painted on the side of a building at 315 Park Avenue South in New York City. I dunno, I guess they don't make posters that big. I did have a pretty big Cindy Crawford one on my dorm room wall though. Jk jk, it was SpongeBob. The proce... / Continue →

    This is a video of DARPA's latest alien technology, a sonic fire extinguisher (just kidding, it's actually just two speakers). It puts fires out with sound. Me? I've actually seen a fire MADE with sound before. I'm serious, one time my buddy held a lighter to back of his sw... / Continue →

    These are some social media inspired outfits put together by B for Bel (previously: the superhero fashion collection). Can you tell what makes them inspired from the different social media sites? SPOILER: It's the colors. The colors are what does it. Plus the Pintrest outfi... / Continue →

    This is a taxidermied zombie head gumball machine. I'm not sure where you're supposed to put your quarter, but I think we can all agree 25-cents is a little steep for a single little gumball. They aren't even the big ones! I would only pay a nickel, tops. Plus nibble on tha... / Continue →

    I've never even heard 'Call Me Maybe' before because I'm too cool for-- "YOU LIVE IN A CAVE!" Hey, cool people can live in caves too you know. It's not all just bears and terrorists. This is 'Call Me Maybe' by iCarly Ray Cyrus or whoever performed entirely in lines from the ... / Continue →

    A group of geneticists have successfully evolved a line of fruit flies that can count. Because that's just what we need, counting insects. How about evolving a fly that just drops dead when you yell, "DIE SCUM" at it? Because that would actually be useful. Also useful? Some... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of TMNT action figures painted by John Harmon of Mint Condition Customs to look way better than they do when they originally come out of the packaging (currently available on eBay HERE). There are even some comparison shots after the jump so you can appreciat... / Continue →

    Remember GotWood Workshop's custom stormtrooper head chair? Well they're back with a Vader one. And let me tell you, this guy is gonna be heavy-breathing right down your buttcrack. NOT-SO-FUN FACT: there are people in the world who are into that. Like, that is their THING. ... / Continue →

    Ahahahhahaha, if I had one of those I'd be pretending it was my penis too! This is slingshot aficionado Joerg Sprave's latest slinger of shots, 'Shaka Zulu's Wet Dream'. It shoots traditional Zulu spears with enough force to bury them a couple inches in a solid wood block. D... / Continue →
  • Driven by the murders of his fictional wife and daughter, and by how Ray Stevenson stole his part in the most recent Punisher film, Thomas Jane bitterly returns to the role of comic book vigilante Frank Castle in Dirty Laundry, an unsanctioned ten-minute Punisher short debuted ... / Continue →

    This is a zombie themed popcorn bucket designed by New York ad agency Y&R for Detroit horror convention Motor City Nightmares. The buckets were such a hit they intend to design more and sell them online. "Finally, some decent horror-themed popcorn buckets for movie night" we'... / Continue →

    This is a leg tattoo of Hulk flipping the bird. Plus he has his name tattooed on his knuckles because sometimes he's so busy raging he forgets it. Hey, when I'm partying hard I do the same thing. "Here's your beer, what was the name on your tab?" JAGERMEISTER. Thanks to Gle... / Continue →

    As I think I've mentioned before, I got banned from Comic-Con three years ago and am not allowed to return for another two. So I wasn't there this weekend. I know, as cool as sitting in a GEEKOLOGIE booth wearing dark sunglasses pretending to not be drunk would have been, it ... / Continue →

    This is Rolly. Rolly is clearly a misnomer though because these things would definitely NOT roll. Gumballs yes, and you can bet your ass I'd still eat them off the floor. Rolly is a chewable rubber toothcleaner with little spikes designed to gently scrub your teeth. It's a... / Continue →

    Hey -- you ever wanted to see a guy squirt snake venom into a wine glass of blood so you can see what it does? Well you are IN LUCK, because that's exactly what this is. Don't want to watch the video? Then I'll just tell you what happens: it turns your blood into gelatin. A... / Continue →

    JESUS, STOP CUTTING YOUR THUMBNAIL SO SHORT. This is the Guillotine Ring (aka The Divorce) from Vagabond Jewelry. You have to constantly hold its little chain in your hand because if you let go it'll cut your finger off. No, no it won't. You will bleed though. And bleeding... / Continue →
