    This is a video of the proprietor of Anthill Art pouring molten aluminum down a fire ant mound to cast the shape of its tunnels to later sell on eBay. I can't imagine the ants were too thrilled about it. Apparently a lot of people weren't either, because he had to disable co... / Continue →

    In news that won't excite anyone and will probably make me look like an ass-hat for even posting it (I'm having a great self-esteem day), Budweiser is going to release new 'bowtie' shaped cans of its famous alcoholic water starting next month. I'm gonna buy some, save them for... / Continue →

    This is 'Venus', the aluminum superyacht designed by Steve Jobs over the last few years of his life. It's super, and it's a yacht. Construction was just recently finished, and the boat was christened 'Venus' during a ceremony with Jobs' family present. Admittedly, it does ki... / Continue →

    This is a Wolverine cake. I know it's kind of hard to tell because the claws are pointed directly at you and made out of aluminum foil, but that's what it is. And there's a different one after the jump with foam claws. Neither one is really the best thing I've ever seen, but... / Continue →

    Knight Neversmiles of the Round Beerpong Table here went and made himself a coat of chain mail armor out of pull-tabs from beer cans. Although there may have been some pop-tops in there too, that wouldn't surprise me. Anyway, he did a good job but there's just no way you can ... / Continue →
