    This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, ... / Continue →

    This is a mesmerizing 15-minute video of an artist manipulating sand on a spinning surface to hypnotize your brain and make you do things you normally wouldn't. In my case, it was eat a healthy lunch. I'm kidding, I had half a box of Girl Scout Cookies and the Snickers bar I ... / Continue →

    These are two pictures taken from the Hubble Space Telescope showing what astronomers believe to be a previously unseen kind of space object. It's described as 'a rotating asteroid with six comet-like tails'. I describe it as a spaceship. One that's going to come rescue me t... / Continue →

    I've used tons of terrible screencaps on Geekologie, and this one is certainly no exception. I had the choice of either using one of the CD just spinning, or after the explosion, and I chose neither of those and went with a really blurry one from during the ACTUAL explosion. ... / Continue →

    Note: It's an optical illusion, not an animated GIF. You can't print animated gifs on paper. This is a video of a cat spazzing out on the optical illusion seen above. So now we know -- yes, cats CAN see optical illusions. And laser beams. Unfortunately mine can't seem to s... / Continue →

    Want your wedding band to serve as a constant reminder of your love for your spouse AND how bitchin' Stargate was? Well WeddingBandDesign has you covered, homey. The ring with the black blocks can actually spin in the setting, just like a real Stargate! "There's no such thin... / Continue →

    This is a ceiling fan somebody removed the blades from, then drilled three skateboard decks to use as replacements. I'm not sure if they used some sort of industrial ceiling fan, but I thought manufacturers generally tried to make fan blades as light as possible. Skateboard d... / Continue →

    This is a video of a girl in her dorm room (I miss bunk-beds!) freestyle pole-dancing (I prefer to think of it as pole-exercising so it doesn't have such a strippy connotation) to Portal 2's ending credits jam, 'Want You Gone'. That's it -- a girl dancing to a song from a vide... / Continue →

    This is 'Seeing in Circles', a video made by Oscar Lhermitte by attaching a digital camera to an electric drill /buffer and spinning the shit out of it. I'm not sure if this confirms that art is in fact dead, but it definitely made me feel pretty pukey. Also: the cereal I had... / Continue →

    I know the screencap is kind of blurry, but those are guns in the air. Also, THE LEAST COOL PLACE I CAN THINK OF TO PERFORM YOUR METAL GEAR SOLID GUNSPINNING ROUTINE. "Hey mom -- don't come in the living room for the next five minutes." God, go outside and stand in front of ... / Continue →

    Go to Google, type in 'do a barrel roll'. The page barrel rolls. This isn't rocket surgery, folks. Google and Google (this one should auto-roll for you) Thanks to Tarkin, Boogie Jon and bb, who don't use Google for anything but reading the autofill responses when they're bo... / Continue →

    This is a guy erasing CD's by stripping the reflective aluminum layer off with high current electricity. It's officially my new favorite way to destroy sensitive material on disc. Definitely beats bending them until they shatter! Using them as clay plastic pigeons for shotgu... / Continue →

    Stare at the center of the spinner for 30-seconds and then immediately look away from your monitor at your hand. What'd you see? Because I saw my fingers going all nitrous "WAH WAH WAH" on me, and then vomit coming out from under my nose. After that, my eyes got watery. MAG... / Continue →
