    Researchers at the University of Virgina (dammit, Wahoos!) have built a robot that mimics the swimming movement of a manta ray. Why? No GOOD reason, I can tell you that right now. Also, who killed Kennedy. Two words: the Russians. "Nope." Space aliens? "Now you're just g... / Continue →

    This is a man wearing a sealed fishbowl over his head and breathing out of some sort of homemade respirator. Why? The same reason men do anything -- to gain the attention of the opposite sex. Just look at those two ladies in the picture. You know what they're thinking? I'm... / Continue →

    Note: Consider this a sort of retroactive 'picture is graphic' warning. I just...wow. I mean, shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Brobro better pray the faux toughguy look is enough to keep him out of a fight, because he takes one punch to the face and he's losing both of those f***ing ... / Continue →

    Everbloom, a Night Elf Restoration Druid playing on World of Warcraft's Feathermoon server, managed to top out their stats at level 85 with only one quest AND NOT A SINGLE KILL. WoW. Get it?! Me neither, I think I took triple my meds this morning! All the player did do to r... / Continue →

    A mile? That's not even scraping the sky anymore -- that's an open-palm grope! Because building a tower taller your neighbor's is making a comeback in proving your superiority (God, whatever happened to a good ol' fashioned pissing contest?!), Saudi Arabia plans on building... / Continue →
