    Ninety cows busting serious ass in a cow shed in Germany caused the shed to explode after a static discharge ignited the methane gas, starting a fire that damaged the roof and caused one cow to require treatment for a burn. When reached for comment, every single cow vehemently... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Not on your lunch break. Seen here looking how I felt after Thanksgiving, a dead sperm whale's stomach explodes as some poor bastard pokes it with a knife. The explosion was caused by the build-up of gases in the stomach after the whale died (of natural causes). Can ... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Indiana of a semi truck that was forced off the interstate by a merging car (LEARN HOW TO F***ING DRIVE) and had no other choice but to CATCH SOME SERIOUS AIR AND EXPLODE. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured or I probably wouldn't be posting thi... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D printed replica of a remote mine from the Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye 007. It has magnets in the back so it can be stuck to metal surfaces and it has light-up LEDs and a beeper when activated. Man, GoldenEye on the N64 really brings back memories. Mostly of h... / Continue →

    This is a 1,000 popsicle stick stickbomb going off. I swear I posted another one on Geekologie before, but I couldn't find it (UPDATE: Found it. More sticks, but less powerful). Anyway, this thing is crazy -- it looks like a frenzied snake when it's going off. Geez, who kne... / Continue →

    This is a series of time-lapse videos created by stitching together 14-years of high-res Hubble Space Telescope images to show the movement of stellar jets from young stars over that period. What's a stellar jet? I'm partial to the SR-71 Blackbird! Fine, FINE -- some actual ... / Continue →
