    It may look real, but that's actually a 65,000 piece LEGO shuttle complete with launch pad and naked alien sluts, minus the naked alien sluts. It took two guys over 1,590 hours to complete and even has flashing lights and sound effects to simulate a launch. Part of the "Nasu ... / Continue →

    Peter Rogers is a hardcore dude. First he insults some guy's girlfriend's mother, and then, in the resulting bar fight, gets his hand cut off with a samurai sword but continues to punch his attacker in the face with his bloody stump. Wow, Mr Rogers (I really loved your littl... / Continue →

    Baconhenge is what the ancients ate for breakfast before battling the shit out of each other with rocks and tree branches. Also, sacrificing virgins to the potato gods and dancing around with gourds on their junk (trust me, I mistakenly sat in on an anthropology class when I w... / Continue →

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you thought yesterday's fire-breathing robot-baby was bad, you're in for a real treat. Adam, a robot scientist, has officially "discovered new scientific knowledge independently of a human operator." Run for the hills folks, and I'm ... / Continue →

    You heard right, 31-year old Utrecht-based designer Sander Reijgers modifies track jackets with parts from blow-up dolls to make them mad sexy. It's about time! I customize existing tracksuit tops with parts of the blow-up dolls: the head, the breasts, the vagina, the anus. ... / Continue →

    As you may recall, ThinkGeek cruelly offered a tauntaun sleeping bag as an April Fool's joke, just to break your heart. Well, because of the overwhelming demand for such a product, Thinkgeek has decided to look into actually having them made. ATTN Tauntaun Fanatics! Due to... / Continue →

    We already featured a Lamborghini elevator garage a while ago, now here comes one with a Porsche. Apparently London's rich are going apeshit over these things, and buying them faster than Cardock can build them. The £40,000 (~$59,000) parking spots can be hidden beneath a ... / Continue →

    Well, this is the part of the day when I toot my own horn because nobody else will touch it, no matter how much money or free ShamWow I offer. So, the cakewrecks blog (a personal favorite of mine) quoted me in a post about nose cakes yesterday. I'm "that guy from Geekologie".... / Continue →

    A group of angry villagers in Broughton, England chased off a Google Street View car because they feared an invasion of privacy and increased crime in the area. "I was upstairs when I spotted the camera car driving down the lane," resident Paul Jacobs told The Times of London.... / Continue →

    South Africa's Legends Golf & Safari Resort has a very special hole 19 -- a par 3 with a teebox that sits 1,400 feet above the green. The 630-yard hole requires a helicopter to reach the tee and a ball takes nearly 30 seconds to drop to the green below (provided you don't whif... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Jen went and made a Tribble cage out of an old CRT monitor. For those of you who don't know, Tribbles are those adorable furry bastards from the Star Trek series. And as you can see, Jen did a great job making a wonderful little home for one. Good looking. ... / Continue →

    The Hotelicopter is allegedly real, although I have some serious doubts (especially if you go to THIS PAGE and see how they're hocking some renderings as real "test flight" pictures). That, and we're two days to April 1st. Still, it might be (but it's totally not). Experie... / Continue →

    When I'm right, I'm right. And I was right. This is what death looks like. Sculptor Kenji Yanobe's Giant Torayan robot, a 7.2-meter (24-ft) tall mechanical baby that sings, dances and spits fire, was sighted in Tokyo's Roppongi district last night. The fire-breathing robot s... / Continue →

    Remember the crazy full-screen Tetris game we posted a couple weeks ago? Well apparently after a while of playing it starts giving you 8-block straight pieces, and you can use these to drop a monster 2,560 point super-tetris (octris). WHEE DOGGIES! It took the person that ma... / Continue →

    That's right folks, bacon lube. Goes perfect when your lady (or man) is wearing a bacon bra and you're scarfing a meat-ship in bed (double entendre, count it!). Ah, heaven. As many of you know, we're huge bacon lovers here at J&D's. We now make Bacon Salt, Baconnaise and B... / Continue →

    Remember Peekaru, the $80 vest that makes it look like a young mutant is bursting forth from your bosom? Yeah, well the folks over at Emptees have a huge gallery of Photoshopped versions. I've included a few of my favorites after the jump, so check them out. Then hit the lin... / Continue →

    This is another anatomical rendering by Jason Freeney of Sackboy's innards. As you can see, there are guts under that zipper. Of course, I already knew that because I got all stabby on him once when he wouldn't give me his wallet. Yeah, and all the king's horses and all the ... / Continue →

    Snap -- you just got double entendre'd, son! Moving on. The Health Control Game Timer shuts down your Nintendo DS if you've been playing for too long. How long is too long? Apparently 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes. The device also features a distance sensor that will flash a... / Continue →

    Well folks, the apocalypse is upon us. Google has foolishly unleashed the world's first "artificial intelligence tasked-array system" (death-bot) upon the world. CADIE (Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity) is going to kill us all, and, even worse, delete a... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video is NSFW at the end. This is a foreign commercial for the Shii, a Wii for her. It's wrong on every level and the games are all super-sexist. Which I 100% don't approve of, except for the cooking and cleaning ones, which seemed alright. Oh, and the last one. But b... / Continue →

    Nope, not April Fools either. Real boxes of "hand-picked" trash from the streets of New York City are available for $50 from greedy garbage tycoon Justin Gignac. You can also get limited edition boxes from Yankee Stadium or New Year's Eve for $100. I sell garbage. I scou... / Continue →

    This is a rare sneak-peek into Qualcomm's normally top-secret R&D Department. I thought it was both informative and awesome, especially the bit at the end with the junior engineer. After watching, I think we can all agree that Qualcomm is, in fact, the future of wireless com... / Continue →

    Squeeze Bacon and a Tauntaun sleeping bag, it's about freaking time! This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and glowing lightsaber zipper pull. Use the lightsaber zipper pull to illustrate how Han Solo saved Luke S... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for the Xbox's latest 'Guitar Hero' style game, 'Alpine Legend'. Designed for two players, one yodels while the other plays a monster skin-horn (aka alphorn). Obviously, this is some April 1st trickery so feel free to send the video to your friends and th... / Continue →

    This is a zombie cake loyal Geekologie Reader Carol made for her boyfriend. It really made me hope that, somewhere out there, a woman is honing her baking skills and waiting to meet me. Of course, I'm not holding my breath. But I am holding my penis hopes up. Per Carol: Ap... / Continue →

    No, it's not unprotected sex, it's a video showing how an infected AIDS cell spreads the disease to other, healthy cells. It's the first time the process has ever been caught on video, and scientists hope the information will help in the search for a cure. The study was made ... / Continue →

    This guy apparently, because he raps all the flight information to the passengers. Personally, I think the title is debatable. I mean, for one: he's not me. And for two: I heard NWA does it better. *SWISH* Youtube Thanks to Curtis and Jcon, who tried to start a rapping ta... / Continue →

    Somebody went and made a crochet Spock Sackboy (Spackboy) in celebration of the upcoming Star Trek movie. Also, I guess they like Little Big Planet. Which makes sense because of, you know, the, uh, transitive property? I don't know, I failed my college proofs class. And not... / Continue →

    Haha, but that didn't stop me from playing all the way to level 3! Well, if there is a level 3. They kind of all looked the same. Messy. Once the gameplay kicks in, gravity switches off, and Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde, the power pills and dots all get to floating around the... / Continue →

    A group of students, celebrating the end of a school course, decided to steal a life-size triceratops replica from the Dinosaur Museum in Dorchester, England. Unfortunately, they didn't get very far before being stopped by the man. Which is a shame, because I would have bough... / Continue →

    This is a questionable commercial for the Shick Quattro For Women TrimStyle with Bikini Trimmer. I'm outraged it was allowed to air because my six-year old just asked me about "those transforming bushes". You know what I told him? Decepticons. Youtube Thanks to "Captain ... / Continue →

    First of all, Vince Shlomi, the ShamWow guy, is 44 years old. In the infomercials he doesn't look a day over a very douchey 25. Secondly, a $1,000 hooker tried biting his tongue off during a sexual encounter at a South Beach hotel and Vince was forced to ShamPow her in the fa... / Continue →
