    Samsung had a 14" laptop prototype on display at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show with a transparent OLED display. That means you can see the screen AND your legs at the same time. Maybe even your penis! Kidding, kidding, it's not a giant magnifying glass. Oooooh, emas... / Continue →

    Because there's nothing more enjoyable than watching jackasses hurt themselves attempting feats of stupid, this is a compilation of the best (and most painful) fails of 2009. It's chock full of future Darwin Award recipients, and I wouldn't be surprised if half these jokers do... / Continue →

    The cleavage caddy may look like a breast-shaped CD holder for your car's sun visor, but it's not. No, it's a purse a woman (or moobed gentleman -- hopefully with a monocle) stows between their breasts (look at me using the proper nomenclature!) and bra. An insert for your br... / Continue →

    Youtube user TotemX went and made a flipbook starring Super Mario Jesus. Basically SMJ jumps off the cross and proceeds to stomp the hell(!) out of some goombas, tear Bowser in half, and then punt the princess like a football. Which....I'm not entirely sure is what the real ... / Continue →

    The man on the left is Professor Henry Markram. Based on this picture alone he's clearly a mad scientist. Don't believe me? Read this captain crazy shit: Professor Henry Markram, a doctor-turned-computer engineer, announced that his team would create the world's first arti... / Continue →

    Paste Magazine writer Kate Keifer went and compiled a list of 20 life lessons she learned from playing the New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Most are things I learned in grade school, but there were some gems in there (no there wasn't, don't expect any). 1. Never trust a flying tu... / Continue →

    This is a picture of Peter Ammentorp as a Na'vi. He made the transformation using Photoshop (I still prefer makeup). As you can see, he did a pretty good job. Don't get me wrong, I'd still bow and arrow the shit out of him and then try syncing with his dead body, but....I ca... / Continue →

    Oh man, I love David Attenborough. And I know a certain lil girl who loves Jane Goodall. And now they're BOTH featured in the latest Symphony of Science, 'The Unbroken Thread'. This is a good one. Especially Jane Goodall's part when she says, "there isn't a sharp line divid... / Continue →

    Somebody went and made 100 cupcakes, each decorated to resemble a game. Some are , some are video games, analog games, but none of them are the Game. The one you just lost. This is only 25 though, so either hit the jump to see the other 75 or click THIS BIGASS BUTTON TO SEE ... / Continue →

    Remember the story about the 16-year old boy and 42-year old cougar hyena that met playing World of Warcraft and decided to bump warlocks in real life? Well the woman was arrested at the airport in Texas after returning from visiting the boy in Canada. And her nipples were st... / Continue →

    I may still be on the Fire Temple in Zelda: Spirit Tracks, but has that stopped me for popping a preemptive booty boner about a new Zelda for the Wii coming out in late 2010? These hips gym shorts don't lie! Satoru Iwata has confirmed to Japanese newspaper, the Asahi Shimbun, ... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video moderately NSFW due to some foul language at the end (hum while you're watching it). This is a College Humor video of a support group for people who have been PWN'D. It was funny. So funny I watched it twice. The second time I slapped my knee. And that's as clo... / Continue →

    Fabrice Bellard, a computer scientist from Somwhere, Doesitreallymatter, recently calculated pi to a staggering 2.7 trillion digits. That's a lot of digits! I don't even have that many in my cell phone and I entered every number in the phonebook (I'm super popular). Fabrice ... / Continue →

    Now I've known about Booty Pop panties for awhile now because I have the imitation Fredrick's of Hollywood ones, but apparently they're making their rounds on the internet again. Because, let's face it: we all want that ultimate, shapely, lifted booty. Unfortunately, this boo... / Continue →

    Today only at Teefury (shirt will not be available for sale after today) $9 plus $2 shipping takes home (well, technically, ships) this Mario inspired t-shirt. As you can see, Mario can't plumb to save his life. Get it? Because he's dead -- he drowned. I swear, where's your... / Continue →

    I remember seeing this in the Skymall catalog the last time I was on a plane (suck it, boat!) and telling myself to remember to post it. That was months ago. Those little airplane bottles played a trick on me! With his characteristically big feet, our more than two-foot-tall... / Continue →

    Let's face it, at one time or another we've all wanted to get stabby on a coworker. Sometimes the feeling is fleeting, but usually it's something we think about doing constantly and doodle pictures of. Enter the $20 Campco TacPen (the Tac stands for tactical, not taco, which ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy beating two pens against a table and a glass in tune with the music from Super Mario Bros. Now I know I already said that in the title, but I wanted to reiterate it without the 'N Sync joke because, truthfully, I'm really shamed I ever made it. Som... / Continue →

    I don't see movies in the theater because I'm afraid to leave my bedroom, so I haven't seen Avatar and I don't know what the dream of Pandora is. But if it's anything like The Heart of the Ocean from Titanic then old wrinkly Rose had it the whole time! So yeah, there's a foru... / Continue →

    The Sharker, despite its name, has no interest in pulling your top down and exposing your breasts in public. No, it's cool just being a monocoque motorbike and feeling the occasional butt on its supple leather seat. While most cars switched to monocoque construction (a techni... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little boy opening up an XBox 360 on Christmas. Except, instead of a console in the box, it's a pair of pajamas. Then the boy proceeds to cry while his dad laughs at him hysterically. Maybe next year they'll run over your dog! Peor Papa en la Historia!!... / Continue →

    I've always been fairly certain the g-spot was invented by women to make me feel inept, and now I have proof. You hear that, women? You don't know your body, science knows your body! "Women may argue that having a G-spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtuall... / Continue →

    That title I came up with made me think of Shredder and the Ninja Turtles. Did anybody else get that feeling? It felt like a tingle. And I'm not talking about Tingle the map-seller in the Zelda series. Although I do know what he feels like too because he touched my butt onc... / Continue →

    I'm sure many of you will never forgive me for comparing Olivia Munn to an orc, but I honestly don't care because I have convictions, damnit. Mostly for traffic violations, but there's an arson one too. Street cred! Anyway, this is a movie trailer for 'Thelma and Loise II: A... / Continue →

    So the military has a new laser rifle that can blind enemies from 2.5 miles. That's pretty far. For reference, that's half the distance between one road sign and another one 5 miles away. The weapon--which is technically a "long-range visual deterrent laser device for hail-a... / Continue →

    Somebody with way too much time on their hands recently had a one-sided Pokemon battle with a girl on Omegle. It's moderately humorous, but there are a fair amount of words to read if you're not into that. And if you're not into that, you're probably not reading this. Dick. ... / Continue →

    Anticlown loyalist Jonah Ray recently had the opportunity to create some LEGO porno scenes for work. And here I thought blogging was the best job ever. Little did I know, little did I know. Hit the jump for two more, including one showing how AIDS was invented.... / Continue →

    Superherofhype forum member Masterle247 went and made himself a War Machine costume in anticipation of the new Iron Man 2 movie. It's super impressive. And it would be even more impressive if he hadn't posed in front of Talbots at the mall. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure all t... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video NSFW due to yelled profanity (you haven't bought earphones yet?). This is a video of an online gamer transferring his skills to the realm of board games. Specifically, Monopoly. It's dead-on accurate, and pretty much highlights all the reasons I don't play online... / Continue →

    You like how I worked both pants AND shirt into the title? I know, it's like I stuffed a whole outfit into that bitch. And let me tell you: they don't teach you that kind of word wizardry at Hogwarts. OR blogging school. Which, ZOMG, I'm totally gonna open. Anyway, this is... / Continue →

    Just look at the way she's admiring his glasses and seductively licking her finger. That's true love if I've ever seen it (and I've seen a turtle hump a sneaker). On Tuesday evening, 16-year-old Andrew Kane nonchalantly asked his mother and father if they would drive him from... / Continue →

    There are two kinds of pranks in the world: mediocre ones, and the ones that they come up with in Japan. This particular video showcases the Japanese variety. Basically there's a fake foam floor and when you walk on it you fall into a pool of hot water. Water that's hot enou... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Wes recently had a birthday. And on that birthday he had a cow, E-I-E-I....am going to cut myself for typing that. Psyche, that shit was hot. Anyway, Wes's friend Leah made him a badass ninja birthday cake. Or it could be a brownie. Whatever the case, thi... / Continue →

    Despite what you may have learned in school, a petabyte isn't a byte that lures children into its van with free candy. That's a pedabyte. No, a petabyte is 1 million gigabytes (1,000 terabytes), and this is a graphic depicting how large that is (you have to hit the jump to se... / Continue →

    This is a Millennium Falcon guitar that was spotted by intrepid Geekologie Reader Isaac. Except it's not really a functional guitar, it's just a guitar neck glued to a Millennium Falcon toy. Still, I suppose it COULD be a real Millennium Falcon guitar if you glued a pickup to... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos showing a guy stopping to pick up some hooks somewhere in Europe. They come to us courtesy of Google Street View, which sees everything. Now, where the hell is this? Scantily clad hookers standing on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere? ... / Continue →
