    Want to rent a room on Craigslist? This is how you do it. Of course, it's not as successful as the last ad I placed looking for a roommate. Granted, I mentioned I was the Geekologie Writer, but I had over 4,000 replies. At least two of which I'm convinced weren't guys that ... / Continue →

    This is a $8 pot holder that's shaped like a pot leaf. It's a pun, get it? I don't but I'm gonna pretend like I do to seem hip to you younger cats. I'm a cool daddy-o, I jive. Now let's buy a lid and smoke the marijuanas! Product Site via This Pot Holder Will Prevent Burn... / Continue →

    CodeOrgan is a website where you can enter any website's URL, and, using a complicated algorithm, it turns the website's code into "music". Obviously, Geekologie is the most beautiful website you will ever hear, but you can try it with any other one you want. And the songs wi... / Continue →

    This is a cartoon of Batman responding to the Bat Signal. Apparently he's a soccer (football) fan. Who knew? I always pinned him as more of a yacht racing kind of superhero. Or is that Thomas Crown? Steal me a Picasso! Even The Dark Knight deserves an evening off [ramblin... / Continue →

    Honestly, I didn't know what a stick-bomb was until I watched this video. Then I was disappointed, but only because I was hoping for explosives. Everything's better with explosives. And I'm not just talking about birthdays! Kinetic artist Tim Fort used 2250 tongue depressors... / Continue →

    John Coker undoubtedly ate crayons (and Play-Doh) as a child. And when he grew up, he decided to make an 8-pack of giant Crayola crayon rockets and shoot them into the wild blue yonder. Sadly, only four of the eight rockets took to the sky. It's okay, John, a 50% success rat... / Continue →

    These are some mock-ups of what Zelda themed Magic: The Gathering cards might look like, as created by ZeldaInformer forum member Subrosia. Unfortunately, they're not real. Which is a shame because had they been I might have played for longer instead of giving up and clothes-... / Continue →

    PleaseRobMe.com is a website that lists people who have recently left their homes and announced their location on Twitter. So you can go rob them. Or go spread rose petals all over their porch if you're not into the whole robbery thing. The website was created to make an imp... / Continue →

    I have absolutely no idea what the hell I just watched, but I have the feeling it's the reason the internet was invented. Bonus black-suit Spidey after the jump. Just lookin' out for you, loverboy. Hit it for the other vid. You know you wanna.... / Continue →

    I know, two hat posts in a row, what can I say -- it must be your lucky day. Besides the one you met me. Which, you better not have washed your hand after we shook! :( But you said you wouldn't. Anyway, the TV hat is a $20 hat that has a clear pocket you put your iPod in a... / Continue →

    Looking to make a statement? A shiny statement that'll probably blind me while I'm trying to drive? Don't think I won't crash into you. I will crash into you. And you won't get a penny of my insurance money. Namely because I don't have any. Haha, what do you mean that's i... / Continue →

    From the 'There's No Way F***ing Way This is Actually A Real Product, Please God Tell Me This Is A Fake Commercial' department comes the Hug E Gram, by far the biggest piece of shit I've seen in recent history (and I stepped in Bigfoot scat hiking over the weekend). The pate... / Continue →

    The Litter Robot is a $330 mechanical litterbox that your cat will ignore and begin shitting behind the couch instead. I just ordered two (one for me, one for the dog). Basically the whole damn thing rotates and sifts the litter, depositing waste in a pan below the unit. It'... / Continue →

    I don't really keep up with women's fashion ever since my petition for toplessness was shot down in Congress, but I do know that plants are good. They like, photosynthesize and stuff and that's good for us because of something to do with nitrous oxide. Ha, did I say nitrous? ... / Continue →

    NOTE: Best viewed at Youtube in 720p. This is a video of the recent Atlas V liftoff and subsequent sonic boom. The cool thing though is you can actually see the shockwaves when the rocket goes supersonic. The whole thing is worth a watch, but the money shot starts at 1:50 (a... / Continue →

    Apparently a school in Pennsylvania issued students laptops and then used them to spy on the children while they were used at home, hoping to score some insight into the child's extracurricular lives lewd webcam shows. According to the filings in Blake J Robbins v Lower Merion... / Continue →

    We've all known about the line of Adidas Star Wars merchandise for awhile, but who knew they were gonna drop such a fresh Vader track jacket? Not me, and I know pretty much everything (I'm a college professor in every subject). The $100 abdomen candy even comes WITH A DETACHA... / Continue →

    ShadyURL is a simple website. You go, enter another website's URL, and, just like magic (it might actually BE magic), it creates a highly questionable URL that links to the same site. It's really a great way to get fired or put on a government watch list if that's what you're... / Continue →

    This just in: the new viewing module added to the International Space Station is actually a refurbished TIE fighter cockpit. You heard it here first. Also, I'm the world's greatest lover and have a body that could make Adonis cry tears of pure abs. What -- you already heard ... / Continue →

    The Wasabi Fire Detector alerts you to the danger of fire with the smell of delicious condimentation. Provided you can smell it over all the smoke. And remembered to replace the batteries after you took them out that time you accidentally burnt a bag of popcorn. Actually, th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy taking an 1,100 pound kick square in the nuts. By an MMA fighter. For science. Or, I dunno, maybe he gets off on that. Who am I to judge? I'm just a man who once stopped a runaway 18-wheeler by laying his penis across the highway. My heroics aside... / Continue →

    This is a mashup picture of Dexter from Dexter's Lab and Dexter from that show Dexter about the serial killer. I've seen a shit-ton of Dexter's Lab but only one episode of Dexter because he reminds me too much of myself and that makes me nervous because I don't want to kill an... / Continue →

    That's right, Star Wars fans, Hasbro is releasing a whole bunch of new Star Wars toys this year, including this 24" AT-AT. It'll set you back around $100. Unless you steal it. Then, depending on whether you use a weapon and have any prior convictions, it could cost upwards o... / Continue →

    This is a video of some sort of Russian-made chassis that turns your car into a treaded vehicle. I'm not sure how it connects or if you have to take the wheels off, but I do know I want one. Just not as bad as I want a kit that turns my car into a monster truck. 20's? Pleee... / Continue →

    Tired of clutching a dog-eared copy of New Moon to your bosom to fall asleep at night? Well fear not, pathetic, because now you can buy $35 homemade Twilight character "manllows". For all the twilight [sic] crazed lonely women in the world, Jacob Black is finally here to be w... / Continue →

    This is a MacBook sleeve that looks like a newspaper. That way you won't get robbed unless somebody is stealing old newspapers, WHICH HAPPENS. Alternatively, wrap your laptop in newsprint. The protective carrier comes in four different foreign language models and will set yo... / Continue →

    This is a Jabba the Hutt cake made for somebody's birthday. I would eat it, despite all the diseases he's undoubtedly carrying BECAUSE I'M A RISK TAKER. This is my birthday cake this year -- Jabba the Hutt. A friend of the family kindly made this for us and I think she did a ... / Continue →

    Want a badass dragon tattoo but worried what your mom will think? Fear not, because now you can get a square instead, and, when you video-chat your special lady-friend on the interwebs, BOOM, IT'S A FLYING DRAGON! You are so hardcore! Of course, not as hardcore as I am becau... / Continue →

    Um, yeah, shoes designed to look like the podiatric lovechild of a Lamborghini police car and stiletto heels. That's something. Something I'll pay you $200 to wear and Riverdance on my nuts. We live in an explosive time for fashion. Bright lights, low brow, express yourself.... / Continue →

    The undeniable pinnacle of computer peripherals, the Fast Fingers keyboard is a $20 example of the opposite of that. It does allow you to choose between a standard QWERTY keyboard layout and an alphabetically ordered one though. But is that all? NO SIR, BECAUSE IF YOU ORDER ... / Continue →

    This is a short documentary about the Na'vi people of Hometree, Wisconsin. In case you couldn't tell, it's a parody and probably incredibly offensive to you real Na'vi. So yeah, shame on them for poking fun you. And, in your defense, it wasn't particularly funny, and I regre... / Continue →

    This is all over the news right now but I don't really understand why because I've known about gliding-lizards (not to mention Komodos) forever. Sure I was an amateur herpetologist growing up and have never had a girl in my bedroom, but one time two of my sister's friends stoo... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure these $50 Supine Reading Glasses have been around for awhile because I remember using them to look up girls' skirts while breakdancing, but here they are, just in case you didn't know they existed. Think of them as periscopes. Really dorky-ass periscopes you w... / Continue →

    Been praying night and day for an RC Millennium Falcon roflcopter thingy? Well God must love you, my friend, because that shit's coming this fall. For $50. From Hasbro -- and here comes my left blow, cause I'm the E-A-Z-Y-G and this is the season to let the real muthaf***in'... / Continue →

    This is a picture of four womens bodypainted (NSFW) as comic book characters. They are, from left to right: The Green Lanterness, Lightning Bug, your dad and Token Stripper. Haha, do I know my superheroines or what? I do. Also, how many fingers you're holding up. Four. Do... / Continue →

    This is a video of a flashmob lightsaber fight that took place over the weekend at a mall in Britain. Now I'm not saying I would have screamed and soiled my pants had I been in the midst of all that, but I would have robbed the nearest jewelry store and blamed it on Luke Light... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a total eclipse (unfortunately, not of the heart) showing the sun playing hide and seek behind the moon (very worthwhile high-res shot HERE). If you look close enough, you can even see an alien in the bottom left corner. Keep looking. This stunning solar ec... / Continue →

    This is a group of Cheesy Bacon Turtles after sunning themselves in the oven. They look pretty disgusting but I'm sure like they taste like a little salmonella-y slice of heaven. Just don't tell the Ninja Turtles I said that (I still owe Michelangelo for the last bag we split... / Continue →

    Apparently a bunch of labs are working on a device that can sanitize your hands with plasma gas so you stop shaking my hand with penis-palm after using the bathroom. Ha, like you'd even use it! You make me sick. The idea of plasma gas may have you thinking twice about sticki... / Continue →

    The Workaholic Pillow Book isn't so much a book as a bound pillow. A $62 bound pillow. Still, if your boss is stupid enough to think you're reading when you're actually asleep at your desk, I want your job. You have a designated parking spot, right? Well I think I just back... / Continue →

    No matter how many times I hear it, the German language never ceases to amaze me. Of course, most Germans would probably say the same thing about me because my language sounds so unusual. You see, I only speak the language of love. Gooch tickle boobie rub. My amorous gramma... / Continue →

    The latest rage in Taiwanese gang weaponry? Shotgun revolvers. F*** all that noise! Seriously, I imagine they're pretty loud. Home made handgun revolvers using standard 12 gauge shotgun shells are becoming increasingly popular with Taiwanese gang members, and this one was c... / Continue →

    Remember playing Operation growing up? Yeah, it gave me heart murmurs, especially when I'd just replaced the 'D' batteries. BZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!. Anyway, this is a new version, cleverly branded with Iron Man. Nice, but I'm passing. You see, I don't play Operation anymore, only D... / Continue →

    Haha, how many of you actually tried? I did, and I didn't even screw up once. I mean, not to brag or anything but: TOY BOAT, TOY BOAT, TOY BOYT, TOY BOYT, TWOY BOYT!! Awh, shit. Do-over? Totally minimal block of wood with digital numbers floating across the surface. These... / Continue →

    I took the liberty of off-centering the map a little so in case your boss walks by you're not blatantly staring at a giant man-hammer in the middle of your screen. Not that you wouldn't be anyways because you're a pervert, but you're not getting fired on my watch. Dammit, I n... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to float around the world in a pyramidal airship filled with enough hydrogen to burst into flames and OH THE HUMANITY! Towering kite-shaped airships could herald a new era of luxury transport following the introduction of the Aircruise concept. Standing 30 metres t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Toronto Raptor's mascot eating a cheerleader during the halftime show. Unfortunately, the mascot is one of those goofy inflatable suits and not an actual raptor, making it infinitely less cool than I had imagined before watching. Or buying this one-way ... / Continue →

    This is a group of Palestinian Na'vi protesting a separation barrier Israel has in place. I actually have no idea what a separation barrier is. Unless it's anything like a restraining order, in which case DAMNIT JULIE YOU KNOW I WALK MY DOG ON THAT STREET. The demonstrators ... / Continue →

    Aha! I always knew there was a connection between the Super Mario and Chrono Trigger universes, and this proves it. It also proves I'm the world's handsomest blogger and have a brain that would make Einstein's turn in its jar of formaldehyde. So, yeah, dip your joint in that... / Continue →

    T-Shirt Wars is a stop-motion video made by lovers duo Rhett&Link. It took 222 shirts to create plus two sperm and quite possibly one in vitro fertilization because Rhett there kind of strikes me as a test-tube baby. Not that there's anything wrong with that (I was born in a ... / Continue →

    February 14th: A day invented by Hallmark to ensure I'll never live up to my girlfriend's expectations (it's true, Mayan calendars skip straight from Feb. 13 to Feb. 15). I hope you're having a good one and spending it with the one you love. Or at least looking at pictures of... / Continue →
