    Note: I'm not sure if this actually counts as drifting or just donuts but I also don't care, so there's that. This is a video of some guy spinning donuts in two BMW E30's at the same time by getting one going, then jumping out, getting in the other, and spinning that one aroun... / Continue →

    The last thing he ever saw coming. In "that's how I want to go too" news, a 51-year old Washington woman (fine, but I want killer to be younger) has been arrested after allegedly drunkenly smothering her boyfriend to death with her big ol' knockers in the back of their mobile ... / Continue →

    Because I've been seriously considering going back to clean up the rest of the trophies in Fallout: New Vegas (and play through all the DLC), here's the Pip-Boy cake Redditor FCDRandy made. Sadness, dead ahead! I know this Pip-Boy cake I made for myself looks like shit, but I... / Continue →

    This is a new license plate from the Mexican state of Coahuila. It features a badass (albeit stoned looking) dino with the phrase "Coahuila: Land of Dinosaurs". According to tipster Ricardo (who lives in Torreon, Coahuila), most people don't like them, which makes about as muc... / Continue →

    Note: Higher res version HERE for people who value their vision. This is the Craigslist ad from Edmonton, Canada of a 31-year old looking for a couple lucky ladies to role play some Star Trek: Next Generation with him. I'm pretty sure it's just a joke post though, because I... / Continue →

    I never crafted the Daedric armor in Skyrim despite having completed all the Daedra quests (and having a ton of Daedra hearts) because I was too busy clomping around in Dwarven armor like some chubby underground troll. I told you I got the platinum trophy though, right? Defin... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday and the internet is drying up drier than the furball I found behind the couch when I was vacuuming (plus it was like, glued to the carpet and I had to loosen it with a bare toe -- thanks for that, Shitty Bill!), here's Gandalf's problem solving flowchart. S... / Continue →

    Just like a Phoenix, but waaaaaay less badass. Hey -- you ever wanted to be a tree? Well now you can (provided you're dead) thanks to the $225 Spiritree, a biodegradable urn that feeds a tree planted in the middle WITH YOUR BURNT-ASS REMAINS. I can't wait to be a mighty oak!... / Continue →

    A prospector in Victoria, Australia, unearthed a 177oz (~11-lb) gold nugget he found using nothing but a metal detector (oh yeah? Well I found gold using nothing but a pan and my own two eyes!). The gold itself is worth just under $300,000 by weight, but the piece will likely ... / Continue →

    Remember the first series of boyfriend achievement badges created by Etsy seller BoyfriendBadges? Well now there's an advanced achievement set for when your relationship gets even seriouser. "Seriouser isn't a word." But you knew what I meant? "Yes." Soooo... "But you're b... / Continue →

    Listen: you just have to watch his thing to believe it. It starts off kind of slow though, so skip to around 1:08 for it to really get going. They do all sorts of crazy tricks like flips, rail-slides, swinging the pogo stick around over their heads mid-jump -- all kinds of cr... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Huffington Post reporter playing a game of Fruit Ninja on a Displair, a motion-controlled display projected onto a cloud of vapor. Obviously, Fruit Ninja was the perfect game to play because it really allows you appreciate the potential applications of a s... / Continue →

    In heartwarming news, the window washers at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, dressed as Superman and Captain America to surprise the sick children there while they worked on the sides of the building. Then they came in for a meet-and-greet and all the kids... / Continue →

    I happen to know finger vibrators have existed for awhile because I remember going to buy vitamins at Target (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) and seeing that Trojan was even selling one. That one wasn't nearly powerful enough for my needs though so I wound up giving it... / Continue →
  • January 17, 2013
    Hey so I puked on my feet in the shower this morning so if I disappear at any point today it's probably because I went to go do it again. Call an ambulance if you don't hear from me but make up a fake name and do NOT let them take me to the hospital because I don't have the mo... / Continue →

    Fired? I would have given him a raise for ingenuity. A software developer was recently fired after his employer discovered he had secretly outsourced his entire job to China for a mere 20% of what he was making. And, since brobro had so much free time on his hands, he also a... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of dudes playing real life Mario Kart thanks to power ups fitted with RFID tags and modified karts that react appropriately (read: crash) when they read a nearby tag. I don't know about you, but count me in. "Put some clothes on first." But I've do... / Continue →

    Excuse me miss, I think you forgot something. "Yes?" A scrunchie! Wrangler, a brand best known for conjuring up images of tight-assed cowboys whenever you think of them, is releasing the world's first line of moisturizing jeans for ladies. Hey -- I like my legs to feel soft... / Continue →

    Note: Picture is actual picture of what they think it would look like. So basically you won't know if you're hyperspacing or just died. In news that shouldn't surprise anyone who's actually hyperspaced before, a group of physics students have calculated what they believe it w... / Continue →

    Remember Matthew Reise's DeLorean hovercraft? Well this is a video of him tooling around in the thing by the Golden Gate Bridge. "The picture you used sucks." I know it does, and I take full responsibility for that. I'm kidding, that was all the cameraman's fault. Rumor ha... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos from Redditor FrancescaO_O of China's recently opened Joyland World, an amusement park based on World of Warcraft. Of course they can't call it World of Warcraft, because that would require licensing rights, and why pay for those if you don't have to... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a man dressed up like Pikachu but also a pimp so everyone's calling him Pimpkachu. I'm calling him so well dressed he doesn't even need to open his eyes to slay other trainers. And I'm calling that blurry woman on the far left IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. Thanks... / Continue →

    What if I told you if you give me a kiss I'll turn into a prince? There is art, then there is art created from frozen cow shit. This is the latter. Siberian Mikhail Bopposov sculpted this serpent out of the dung dropped by his 17 cattle to celebrate the coming Year of the S... / Continue →

    Stealth Wear is a line of counter-surveillance clothing designed by Adam Harvey to help avoid detection by the government or whoever the hell else might be hunting you down. The Illuminati? Probably not, you're not that important. A jilted ex-girlfriend MAYBE, but don't kid ... / Continue →

    This is a map of the United States and Canada (click for the website with a zoomable version) that has a dot for every person living in the two countries during the 2010 and 2011 Censuses. How many dots is that? Try over 60,000. Way over 60,000, because it's 341,817,095. T... / Continue →

    This is the $40 'Cartoon Totoro Lycra Spandex Multicolor Zentai Suit' available from Milanoo. If it hadn't said Totoro in the product title, I probably wouldn't have known it was supposed to be him. And that might have made it better. But let's not kid ourselves, we've alrea... / Continue →

    Because who doesn't want to barreling down a mountain covered in frozen grossness, the Arizona Snowbowl ski resort has just started making artificial snow with waste water from the town's local sewage treatment plant. It's not actually toilet water though, it's just the water ... / Continue →

    This is the very impressive Krang in his mechanical suit outfit made by theRPF user TVsRobLowe for a Halloween costume contest. I really think he captured the lifelessness of Krang's android body perfectly. Also, I have a pair of big red underwear just like those. "Who cares... / Continue →

    The Vaportini is a $35 device used to vaporize alcohol, after which it can be inhaled into the lungs and the effects of intoxication felt much more quickly than traditional oral or buttchugging methods. Obviously, lawmakers are terrified a bunch of kids are going to inhale the... / Continue →

    This is the Buxxxer series of vibrators from new Italian sex toy manufacturer Kokoro (and NOT Totoro, who doesn't want anything to do with your privates). They look like little people. That's weird. They are, from left to right: Clitt, Woody, and Geena. Personally, I would ... / Continue →

    This is a cake made in the form of living video game console BMO from 'Adventure Time'. He's all delicious rainbow cake on the inside. Me? I don't know what I am on the inside but one time I accidentally stabbed myself running with scissors and a green ooze started seeping o... / Continue →

    Mini, get it? Because they're Smurfs and Smurfs are small. Seen here looking even dumber than they did in my mind prior to seeing a picture, three of the four teenage Smurfs that were arrested following a crime spree in Australia are seen on a 7-11's security footage. The Sm... / Continue →

    Because what homeowner doesn't want a bunch of birds living in their roof, this is a line of ceramic birdhouse roof tiles designed by Klaas Kuiken. I think they're a real product you can buy, but they only really work if you already have a ceramic tile roof. They'd look prett... / Continue →

    And all it takes is a skylight, a doll, some tape, and a ladder. Although you don't even need a ladder if you have a pet dragon or can jump onto the roof from the top of a car parked in your driveway (that's what I do). And if you think I didn't just round up all my little si... / Continue →

    This is a cat with a custom Iron Man mask made for him out of a grapefruit. Hopefully he didn't get any citrus in his eyes wearing it though, because that shit hurts. You ever done a tequila hardman before? Where you snort the salt, take the shot, squirt the lime in your eye... / Continue →

    Because what good is the internet if we can't use it to waste government resources and increase taxes, a petition to start construction of a Death Star by 2016 was proposed on the White House's website. And, since the petition garnered nearly 35,000 signatures, the White House... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a flower from Psychotria elata, a small understory tree in tropical forests whose flowers are affectionately known as hooker's lips. Get it? Because they look like bright red lipsticked lips. Just think -- now you can plant a seed and grow your own girlfrie... / Continue →

    This is a full-length remake of the original Toy Story shot scene-by-scene using real toys by Jonason Pauley and Jesse Perrottato over the past two and a half years. That...is some serious commitment. I don't know if I've ever stuck with any personal project that long. Unles... / Continue →

    Parasailing snowmobiling today, paraplegic snowmobiling tomorrow. This is a video of a guy who attached a parasail to his snowmobile so he can take off and fly for short periods of time. That's just a solid idea if you ask me. Also: para-snorkling. Think about it -- just ... / Continue →
