    In heartwarming news, the infamous 'world's worst portrait tattoo' has been fixed free of charge by tattoo artist Scott Versago of Empire Ink in Akron, Ohio. Unfortunately, like most things you laugh at on the internet, there was some real sadness behind the story. I got to t... / Continue →

    44-year Darren Baldwin got fired from his temporary job at a UK stress ball factory, so what did he do? What anybody in a warehouse full of stress relievers would -- punched his boss, then produced two knives and began threatening to stab him in front of the other workers. I... / Continue →

    I meant to post this video when it came out late last week but I have a little something my doctor likes to call "a really serious issue" and I forget things sometimes. So I'm sorry if you've already seen this, but not too much because you're usually a jerk to me anyways. Thi... / Continue →

    This is a video of two autonomous quadrocopters that can toss a spear back and forth and balance it on its end. These things are seriously getting out of control. I don't care what the government tries to tell you, there's no legitimate human-interest purpose for spear throwi... / Continue →

    Because kids love experimenting in the dumbest ways, a group of fourth and fifth graders in South Carolina were recently caught smoking and snorting Fun-Dip powder and crushed up Smarties at school to create "smoke". What a bunch of morons. "Says the guy who's snorted salt an... / Continue →

    This is a Freddy Wong video reimagining the final level of Super Mario 3 (the tank and cannonball level) and Bowser confrontation in the first person. It's a sequel to the first level they made and took over 50-days of rendering to complete. For reference, that's 50-days long... / Continue →

    This is a very basic Star Wars family tree designed by ChartGeek and color-coded based on movie appearances/extended universe to to prep not-so-serious-fans for the upcoming films. Not shown: Me and Princess Leia's secret lovechild. "You don't have a love child." Yes I do too... / Continue →

    I generally avoid participating in any sort of Gangnam/Harlem shake style memes because they're usually only mediocre to begin with and start beating a dead horse fast, but this is different. It's a compilation video of Russian troops singing and marching to the SpongeBob Squa... / Continue →

    Caddisfly are a species of moth-like insect that, when in their larval stage, spin a web of silk and attach whatever materials they have around them to it for protection before climbing inside to pupate. So you know what French artist Hubert Duprat gave them? A beret, baguett... / Continue →

    This is a video of Lily the lionhead bunny (a domestic rabbit breed with a mane like a lion). Lily is currently looking for adoption from the North Texas Rabbit Sanctuary and has a special wheelchair she uses because SPOILER: her back legs were amputated because she had a brok... / Continue →

    This is a retired LEGO injection mold that pumped out 120-million six-stud bricks over its lifetime. That's a serious work ethic. LEGO molds these days? They come fresh out of school and expect some cushy job to just be handed to them, then get all pissy when it doesn't happ... / Continue →

    Ever dreamed of eating a Gusher THE SIZE OF A SMUSHED BASEBALL? If you're anything like me you have, because three-quarters of my dreams involve overeating. The other quarter are nightmares involving ghosts and my ass. Take a bunch of Gushers, wrap them in a layer of Fruit R... / Continue →

    Seen here about to kick your ass for making fun of his tastefully decorated guestroom, Youtuber ljameswalters sings 'I Dreamed a Dream' entirely in the voice of Gollum -- and does a damn fine job of it. It's still weird to watch though. Like beautiful but still really awkward... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Slow Mo Guys (sad fact: my friends in high school used to call me Slow-Mo but not in a good way) of soap bubbles being popping and filmed at 18,000 frames per second. To make that a little easier to comprehend, that's 9,000 frames every half second. "... / Continue →

    Time Machine Restoration, a group dedicated to bringing Back to the Future's film-used Time Traveling DeLorean "A" car (the primary one used in the movie) to its former glory, has completed their restoration. And, from the looks of the thing, I think it might actually be able ... / Continue →

    Inspired by Freddie Wong's R/C police chase shot like a real movie, this is another impressive little R/C car chase by Youtuber FinalCutKing through a cardboard city made "entirely out of cardboard, hot glue, and spray paint." Impressive, but I made a girlfriend once out of th... / Continue →

    IT'S F***ING TERRIFYING, THANKS FOR ASKING. God, why am I even friends with these people? First we had a conceptual demonstration of Google's smart-glasses, and now an actual one of what a user would experience wearing the things. Basically they're glasses with a see-through... / Continue →

    Really? Because I could have sworn all my professors were teaching droning. Get it?! Because they just rambled on monotonously all the time! "Well obviously they weren't teaching comedy." GOOD ONE. How's that dickbaggery major working out for you? The pilotless aircra... / Continue →

    This is the very impressive Ghostbusters headquarters recreated in LEGO by LEGO pro Orion Pax (of LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean and Hill Valley fame -- be sure to check out his site for even more of this build and equally impressive others). The detail is out of this world.... / Continue →

    The 3Doodler (not to brag or anything but I've actually been 4doodled before) is a pen that 3-D prints whatever you draw. Think of it as a hot-glue gun except with instantly-hardening plastic. You can dry with the plastic on a flat surface and then peel it off for 2-D objects... / Continue →

    Because quality parenting is a dying art, a 33-year old mother from South Glens Falls, New York, was recently arrested and charged after hiring two strippers for her 16-year old son's bowling alley birthday party. For reference, when the mother was her son's age she was pregna... / Continue →

    These are allegedly some pictures from Redditor NoMoreGFs4Me (aka ForearmOfSteel) of what he came home to after breaking up with his girlfriend. Well, he SAYS breaking up with, but I don't know, it looks like he might have cheated. Hit the jump for a closeup of a hammered dis... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Rated RR shooting watermelons with Crysis 3 inspired exploding arrows. He made a couple different versions, one with the explosive in the arrow's tip, and another one that doesn't explode until the arrow has nearly pierced the melon to its fletching... / Continue →

    In thanks for keeping it creepy news, here's an electric guitar made out of a little mannequin girl. A mannequin girl owner Luthier Lou Reimuller takes the time to dress up in different outfits. I have so many questions. Is she part of the band? Just a groupie? If she had ... / Continue →

    This is a video of 'shark whisperer' Ocean Ramsey (whose mom is rumored to be a mermaid) swimming with a great white shark off the coast of Mexico. At one point she even grabs a hold of its dorsal fin and gets pulled along for a little while. The actions of a sane person? No... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of some of the characters from the original Star Trek series created using characters from Pixar movies and mashed up by artist Phil Postma (with more info on the series and why Sulu is the color he is, etc.) They're mostly really good, just like the sandwich... / Continue →

    You ever wanted to sit atop a throne made out of old keyboards and yell at the internet to do your bidding? Me too, and now at least one man can because Mike DeWolfe just made one. Just don't expect the internet to ever do what you say. You there, lowly interwebs -- bringet... / Continue →

    Nay, get it? Because that's what horses say. Well of course it's not funny if it was never funny to begin with. So apparently there's a Dr. Whooves My Little Pony coming out in August and all the Brony/Whovian combo bros (combros) out there are mad excited about it. Me? Th... / Continue →

    Paintyourpizza.com is a website where you can Microsoft Paint your own pizza and a participating pizza shop will actually make the pizza. There was at least one participating pizza shop in New York when I looked over the weekend, but now there don't seem to be any. Maybe they... / Continue →

    Note: Decent sized version of the finished product HERE, but check out the artist's DeviantART page for a giant one. DeviantARTist Elemental79 remastered this iconic 320x240 Doom screenshot into a 9,600x7,211 resolution version spanning seven Photoshop files. For reference, t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Marionettebots made for a United Arrows fashion store in Japan. Using a Kinect, the marionette robots mimic whatever movements passerbys make. Can you make them touch themselves? Probably, but that would mean YOU'RE touching yourself and risking a visi... / Continue →

    I posted the Flyboard back in 2011 when the company first came on the scene, but now they're back with a fancy commercial. This is that commercial. And it's set to one of the most questionable songs I've heard in recent history and that's saying a lot because my little sister... / Continue →

    So it's President's Day and I'm out celebrating all our fabulous leaders which means I'm actually stuck in the waiting room at the doctor's office where they like me to keep me for at least two hours so if I wasn't sick when I came in the lady with the eyepatch who keeps coughi... / Continue →
