    This is the gingerbread Barad-dûr with light-up Eye of Sauron built by two Finnish engineering and computer science students. It took over 13.5-pounds of gingerbread to complete, but only one really high friend to eat half of when they had their backs turned. Keep going for a... / Continue →

    This is an already funded Kickstarter campaign for two (one raw, one painted) Krampus themed beer steins. $48 gets you the raw style when they ship next May, and $60 the painted version. I'm having a hard time deciding which one I want, which is why I just did Eeny, Meeny, Mi... / Continue →

    This is a video of music teacher (hence the giant instruments) Tom BetGeorge's Christmas lights display. Tom says he has about 12,500 channels running 100,000 lights, and this year they're all synced to Star Wars songs (there's even a lightsaber battle). I wonder how many peo... / Continue →

    This is a sampling of the dinosaur Menorahs sold by Etsy shop The Vanilla Studio. They're made from spraypainted plastic dinosaur toys, some putty, and candle holders. They cost $85 apiece though, making it far more economical to create your own. I just made one by taping a ... / Continue →

    This is the $20 Mitten Flask. It's a pair of mittens with a 3-ounce (5-ounces too small) flexible flask hidden inside the palm of the left-hand mitten, with a bite-valve at the thumb. That sucks because 1. I'm left-handed and would prefer the flask be in the right mitten, whi... / Continue →

    This is the Cthulhu Christmas wreath created by Maika Keuben (of Cthulhu Christmas tree fame). It's the perfect wreath to let carolers know they've come to the wrong house to sing at. But by the time they realize it, it will be too late, and the tar and feathers will already ... / Continue →

    Remember world-class performance artist Sara X's Mozart inspired breast dance? Well now she's back for the holidays with a titillating performance of Jingle Bells. I think we can all agree, it's just about as perfect as a video can be without being the trailer for that new Ju... / Continue →

    This is the Blown Glass Solar System Ornament Set. It includes the sun (not shown) and all nine planets (high-five, Pluto!). Unfortunately, the set costs $375, which is significantly out of my ornament budget this year. I can barely afford to string popcorn together. Beside... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Nut Hammer. It's exactly what it sounds like unless you thought it was some sort of S&M sex toy, in which case my balls just snuck back inside me like Homer Simpson disappearing into that bush even thinking about it. Same goes for a nut tenderizer. You just p... / Continue →

    So, you got invited to a friend's ugly Christmas sweater party. Ask if you can bring a plus one (I'm trying to meet new people). Then order one of these Ugly Christmas Suits from Shinesty and be the talk of the party. And not just because you brought a stranger who's rifflin... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little pumpkin with a superconductor jammed up its keister levitating on a magnetic track. REAL TALK: I'd let a scientist jam a superconductor up my keister if they told me I'd be able to levitate on a magnetic track. Hell, I'd let them put one up there i... / Continue →

    Because tomorrow is Halloween, here's a prank video featuring a flying radio controlled Grim Reaper terrifying the shit out of people. Honestly, I can't believe people were actually that scared. If it's your time, it's your time -- you can't escape death. I would have just t... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it, this is a prank video utilizing a legless man to play a dissembled chainsaw massacre victim. It is f***ed up. I feel like these Youtube pranksters have really gotten out of hand lately. I mean, somebody's going to have a heart attack eventuall... / Continue →
