    Eric Brocklebank, 64, got struck by lightning while manning the barbecue. And what did he have to say about it? Sausages. "It was like an implosion inside my body." "There was so much pressure inside of me and I couldn't see properly. I could just make out the faint outlin... / Continue →

    PR2 is a robot that can hunt down power outlets to recharge its own battery. Why it even exists is beyond me. Thankfully, I just jammed forks into all my electric outlets, so if he tries stealing my power, he's in for a real shock (!). This particular run had our PR2 alpha r... / Continue →

    I don't care what you say, that's probably the best life those barrels could have asked for. God knows I've run over my fair share and dragged them home. NC State student Joseph Carnevale, the artist behind the Traffic Barrel Monster, has been arrested for stealing the barrel... / Continue →

    Skinny Blonde Beer comes from Australia and has a skinny blonde chick on the front of the bottle that, when the temperature gets hot enough, loses her top. And, to give you a demo of this model of modern boobosity, they have the six chicks in the picture above to provide NSFW ... / Continue →

    The Comfort Wipe is an 18" arm extender/wad of toilet paper holder for use when you can't reach your own ass or don't like your digits coming into contact with your butthole (you're doing it wrong!). Interesting. Also, I want to know the "advantages" of being big the hefty du... / Continue →

    That's right, some gang of criminal masterminds operating out of Britain uploaded songs to iTunes and Amazon and then, using 1,500 stolen credit cards, bought $750,000 worth of their own songs, netting them nearly $300,000 in royalties. Six men and three women were arrested ... / Continue →

    Let's face it, you're a badass. And a badass needs something equally bangarang to cover his booboos when he falls and skins his leg or cuts himself with a laserbeam. Enter leather band-aids. A pack of 3 will set you back $18, which is a little steep considering they don't co... / Continue →

    This is a video of some stormchasers in Goshen county, Wyoming driving into a tornado (the good stuff starts around 2:20). I've got to admit, it's a pretty ballsy move -- but I've done it on foot. And yes, I was transported to Oz. Don't believe me? Then where'd I get these... / Continue →

    This conceptual gel remote from Panasonic lays limp when not in use, pulsating with a soft light. But when its sensors detect a hand coming, it stiffens, ready for action! Constructed of a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears cold when off. Once turned on, however, it see... / Continue →

    I don't even have windows in my apartment OR car but that didn't stop me from buying $6,000 worth of Solar Gard Window Films. Because, you know what they say, "Pew makes the world go round". No? "Kill two birds with one laser"? A-ha! "All you need is pew." Amen to that. An... / Continue →

    I've got the feeling it'll look great with a neon pink track suit. Or nothing at all. Which, honestly, is the only way to wear hats. Of course, if you're a BTTF 2 purist you could whip out your shoes, jacket, hoverboard and Delorean and BAM!: dead ringer for Marty McFly. Wh... / Continue →

    Today's shirt.woot is the Monalisaur. I bought one. It cost $10 shipped. I'm going to wear it. Then I'm going to cut a hole where the mouth is and wear it out. Yow yow! I've never made love to a dinosaur-woman hybrid before but I've always wanted to. Although, to my cred... / Continue →

    As we've learned in the past, personal selling takes skills. We've seen people do it right, and we've seen people do it horribly, horribly wrong. This is another example of successful selling. Once while washing a load of towells it got a bit out of balance and it got so out... / Continue →

    This is a four minute video of robots with guns. Some of it is CG, some is real footage, but all of it is a vision of the future. Now watch it and tell me you're cool with it. Because if you can, you're sick. And not 'I've pleasured myself in a cemetery' sick. Even worse. ... / Continue →

    This is a moderately NSFW video showing what life would be like on the Enterprise if it was partially run by scantily clad womens. Although truthfully, Deanna Troi was more than enough sexy lady/Betazoid hybrid for me. Yow yow! And how about when she and Worf were getting it... / Continue →

    Well folks, based on the tips I've been getting, it looks like today might turn into Robot Apocalypse Awareness Day (RAAD -- which is ironic, because this is far from the power of sick). Long story short: it's probably best to empty your bowels now. So, apparently the Israeli... / Continue →

    This is a NSFW video of a tetrad guy watching a Tetris orgy video. Which, if watched without sound, is actually pretty safe for work. But then you don't get to hear all the moaning, which, honestly, is the only reason I stay in seedy hotels in the first place. As a matter of... / Continue →

    You may recall a couple years ago when Mountain Dew came out with a special edition Halo-themed soda called Game Fuel. You may also recall It tasting like shit and the Geekologie Writer suing because it made his penis shrink (it was visible before, I swear). Well now they're ... / Continue →

    This is a Meatwad (of Aqua teen Hunger Force fame) inspired cosplay dress. As you can see, the chick isn't looking too Meatwad-y. More Meatstick-y. AND THE DRESS IS MADE FROM REAL FREAKING MEAT. AAAAAAAAAAH I'M IN LOVE! I considered somehow vacuum-sealing sheets of meat w... / Continue →

    Now I don't want to get into a philosophical debate about the merits of banging a humanoid Cylon, but in Number Six's case, I would. Hell, I'd even do her in puppet form. What do you know -- I'm in luck! Geekologie Reader Brian (of Puppet Palpatine fame) is making a bunch of... / Continue →
