    Send a ball, that's how. Or nothing. Honestly, I'd prefer nothing. At least you won't piss my mailman off (he already f***s up all my packages). Send a Ball, the online store that lets you create personalized inflatable balls for any occasion, made its ABC Shark Tank debu... / Continue →

    Finally, after years of watching me struggle with those impossible-to-open packets, Heinz has decided to take my advice and invest in new condiment applicators. Impressive, but I suggested spray cans. Named (and trademarked) the Dip & Squeeze, the new packet-y things offer bo... / Continue →

    NOTE: Song is arguably NSFW due to language like balls and the f word. This is a pretty funny rap song about Super Mario Land for the Game Boy. It's particularly worth watching if you ever played the game. I had it and I'm proud to announce that not only did I beat it, I smok... / Continue →

    Remember when Pluto was a planet? Me neither, I drink too much. And, I don't know if we can really trust anything NASA tells us anymore, but these are allegedly the most detailed images of Pluto ever taken. As you can see, we still have a long ways to go. NASA today release... / Continue →

    Somebody went and made it look as if the iconic Statue of Liberty scene in Planet of the Apes appears in Google Maps (larger version HERE). Cute. Fun fact: did you know a time-traveling simian from Planet of the Apes is responsible for AIDS? It's true or my name isn't Dick D... / Continue →

    This is a "reveal" trailer for the new Sonic the Hedgehog coming to XBox Live because it shows a solid two seconds of gameplay footage. Aaaand it looks just like the old games. So that's cool. I get down with the oldschool. Also, OPP. Yeah you know me! Official Site and... / Continue →

    I always wanted one of those split-heart necklaces that you and your BFF were each supposed to wear half of, but I never got the chance. You see, I've never had a BFF. Or for that matter, even an F. I was raised by a powerful sorcerer. I had an owl. I thought he was my fri... / Continue →

    A Hello Kitty chainsaw (high-res pic HERE): it was only a matter of time. Makes a great addition to you to Hello Kitty AR-15. But not your family. You don't want that thing suckling your teat for six months. F*** your nipples up. Hello Kitty Chainsaw [hellokittyhell] Than... / Continue →

    This is a little (well, large actually) informational graphic explaining who uses the interwebs and some other stuff about this bitchin' series of tubes. There's nothing particularly shocking about the stats except for the fact that US broadband speed sucks big ol' fossilized ... / Continue →

    That Sheldon, so funny with his science-y jibber jabber and social awkwardness. Except in this clip, since you don't know when to chuckle because there isn't a laugh track. You can compare the clip to the laugh tracked version (after the jump) and appreciate just what having ... / Continue →

    Granted a LEGO wallet isn't the worst thing (cellmate) to make your ass hurt, but still. I can barely stand my wallet and it's genuine pillowdragon leather (softest material known to wizard). I don't want a bunch of dots printed on my buttcheeks, yo! Still, if you're a lady ... / Continue →

    Brain Freeze ice cube trays aren't just cleverly named, they're -- yes, that's all they are. $8 takes home the piece of molded rubber and another couple bucks brings home some food coloring. Mix all that shit together with some tap water, say a magic prayer, and you've got yo... / Continue →

    I hate to start wild speculation, and I'm by no means one of those foil-hat asshats (industrial-grade aluminum all the way, baby), but this is a picture of an alien spacecraft. Per NASA cover up: ...what Hubble saw indicates that P/2010 A2 is unlike any object ever seen befo... / Continue →

    Sure Retro Thursday isn't even a real segment on Geekologie but you never know, I might run with it. And by "it" I mean your bike. Of course if I was smart I would ride with it, but I'm not. This is a Japanese commercial from 1978 for Hagoromo canned tuna featuring one-off t... / Continue →

    Remember the post about Lollyphile's Maple Bacon Lollipops from many moons ago? Well just when you thought there wasn't any room for improvement, room was cleared because NOW EACH SUCKER COMES JAM-PACKED WITH THE CAFFEINE EQUIVALENT OF TWO CUPS OF COFFEE! I'm sweating and it ... / Continue →

    Because I love watching all the fanboys pop Apple boners and then yelling, "QUICK -- EVERBODY LOOK!" while pointing and laughing, this is allegedly an iPhone 4G prototype sitting atop an iPad prototype. As you can see, it looks like a blurry iPhone. Possibly with a black beze... / Continue →

    This is a video of little birds playing guitar as part of some wack-ass French (of course) art exhibit. For his installation in The Curve, Boursier-Mougenot creates a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments... / Continue →

    Monopoly, everybody's favorite game before the advent of video game consoles, will now be available in a round model to celebrate the game's 75th anniversary. Because circles, as you may know, are the perfect shape. Which is why boobs are kind of round. True story (I'm gonn... / Continue →

    Because Japan never ceases to amaze me, 'Crying Girls' is a soon-to-be-released DVD of, well, girls crying. Because some people are into that. And those people should be put on a watch list. It may not be The Crying Game but "Crying Girl" (Nakigao, in Japanese) from Amuse So... / Continue →

    A bunch of French Canadians (you sound so funny!) decided to cover their friend in $37 of raw bacon and film it with the hopes of being featured on Geekologie. And, because I'm basically a super handsome 'Make a Wish' foundation, here it is. Per babelfish translation: We had... / Continue →

    The SEGA Zone is basically a giant turd in a box with the SEGA name slapped on it. You can count on your grandmother buying you one for Christmas instead of a Wii. The Sega Zone is a weird little console that comes preloaded with 50 games, including 20 classic Genesis games. ... / Continue →

    That's right folks, gang members are taking to popular social networking sites to brag about crimes, issue threats to rival gangs, and score bitches/drugs/skrilla. Basically everything Facebook and Twitter were invented for. When a gang member was released from jail soon afte... / Continue →

    A-ha! It's really true too, once you see him he's nearly impossible to un-see. Thankfully, I have a little secret: booze. Higher proof the better. Okay, now pour it in your eyes. Can't see him anymore, can you? Good. How many fingers am I holding up? If you answered, "n... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're thinking, "But I don't remember buying an underwater plane". And that's because I'm talking about Virgin Group, Richard Branson's company, not virgin, you. You're poor, remember? Guests on Necker Island, a retreat in the British Virgin Islands, will be... / Continue →

    This is a picture depicting the Ninja Turtles as imagined by various famous artists. It's pretty cute. That's right, cute. I can call things cute because I'm secure enough in my masculinity to do that. Also, tape my penis between my buttcheeks and wear women's underwear. ... / Continue →

    The Gear Ring from Kinekt has functional gears in the middle that allow the bezel to rotate. And that's pretty much it. No lasers or anything. They're available in US sizes 9-12 for $165, and may need to be oiled from time to time. Not unlike the Tin Man! Who, fun fact: is... / Continue →

    This Wi-Fi detecting car decal tips tailgaters off to available wireless connections. It was made by cutting the illuminated panel out of one of these shirts and sticking it to the car's window. Which you've got to admit: for such a hardcore Apple fanboy (see license plate) i... / Continue →

    So a bunch of jerky scientists who should all be hung (like outlaws, not horses) for treason against humanity have created robots that evolve. And, get this: they've evolved the ability to hunt. Awesome, WE'RE ALL DEAD. The robots were controlled by a neural network that mut... / Continue →

    This is a simple stop-motion movie made using a webcam and 6,561 little black-and-white printed cards. It's fairly awesome but nowhere near as awesome as jumping a pile of burning leaves on a BMX. Which I've done before. Followers of the Touhou game franchise would recogniz... / Continue →

    Because Japan has infinitely cooler (and 10x perverted) everything, it was only a matter of time before they beat us to the invention of breasted mouse pads. I don't know where you get them, and I don't know why you would get them, all I know is I did get them. Which, fun fac... / Continue →

    That's right, would-be astronauts, you can forget about NASA ever sending you to the moon strapped to a giant rocket, cause that shit ain't happening. Your only chance now is lassoing a moonicorn and barebacking that bitch to outerspace. Obama wants to end NASA's moon program... / Continue →
