    Remember the series of bald guys with breaking water balloon "wigs"? Well here's another series of the same thing, except with bald women. As you can see, this lady here looks suspiciously like a cyborg, so she probably short-circuited right after the picture was taken. Remi... / Continue →

    Come on bro, you have to admit you look creepy as f***. Please tell me you at least had a shirt on. Steve Mann, the self-proclaimed "father of computer vision systems" (and NOT "the father of a dino baby" like I want to be) was recently assaulted by three McDonalds employees ... / Continue →

    Reddit user captaincripple lost his leg in a motorcycle accident and has since had a custom-painted prosthetic made. This is it. It looks half-human, half-robotic, 100% something that would freak me out if I saw fall off. Im 20 years old and a bit over 12 months ago had a ... / Continue →
