    This is a set of 3-D printed thorn dice designed by Shapeways user ceramicwombat. You can get plastic versions for as low as $27, but that makes you a cheap-ass. Just save up the $82 and get a decent metal set or don't get any at all. Just think about how badass your next Du... / Continue →

    This is a video from Cornell University of two artificial intelligence systems talking to each other. They're nonsensical and rude, even to their own kind. Plus they pronounce Cleverbot "Cleverbutt", which gave me a serious case of the giggles. And by giggles I mean runs, be... / Continue →

    Hot on the heels of yesterday's 'No More Hiding Dungeon Master's Guides In You B-Hole' story comes these giant inflatable D20 dice. Each 17-inch die takes only a minute to inflate, and even less to deflate with a pocketknife. $12 get's the ball die rolling. And, since it is ... / Continue →

    This is a super short video of a Contra commando playing Duck Hunt. And in case you can't watch videos at work, I'll spoil it for you: the ducks lose. But if you want to watch the ducks win, you should watch that youth hockey themed movie starring Emilio Estevez. OMG HE WAS ... / Continue →

    Since there's no hockey on some Canadian mathematicians have shifted their efforts to creating a mathematical model for surviving the zombie uprising. And you said nothing good ever came out of Canada! That guy, right there -- he's the one that said it. GET HIM, CANUCKS! A... / Continue →

    Be honest, every single one of you would rock this handbag. I know I would, and I don't give a dang if it clashes with my live bear chaps or not (all man, baby). Available from evilmadscientist as mini and full-size kits ($20 and $25, respectively) you're still gonna have to ... / Continue →
