    This is a little graphic depicting God of War III's nutritional facts as imagined by Gary Hodges. And, as expected, it's pretty much everything you need to grow up strong and healthy. Suck it, Flintstones vitamins! Just kidding -- you know how you can't open a Tic-Tac box wi... / Continue →

    The Clicker is a universal remote with a bottle opener attached. I don't know how expensive they are but I do know much it would cost to duct tape a regular bottle opener to my existing remote, so free is kind of my price point right now. And free, as you may know, is what th... / Continue →

    Before a major news outlet misspelled Large Hadron Collider. Thankfully, it was the Telegraph and not a really respectable news source like Geekologie. Because boy would I have been red in the face! No, no I wouldn't have been. I would have worn that shit like a badge. A b... / Continue →

    Catman, get it? It's a take on Batman, but with cat instead of bat because, I don't know if you could tell or not, but that's a cat in the picture. I know, I know, the mask threw me off too. rVm41[izit] Thanks to Rob, who once put a Robin mask on a blue jay but then it flew... / Continue →

    I don't know, but it doesn't sound good. I better finish my rocket double-time before this thing goes and swallows up the solar system. WHO'S COMING WITH ME? I have room for three. Plus snacks. Operators of the world's largest atom smasher on Friday ramped up their massive... / Continue →

    Dammit Bruce, that's not how you hold a lightsaber. You're likely to cut your own Bat-peen off stabbing around like that. I'm serious, one time I was swinging around a rope bone for my dog like that and walloped myself in the change purse. I managed to waddle to the bathroom... / Continue →

    For those of you not familiar with the WWF, it's all fake. It's basically two musclebound douchebags dancing around in choreographed homoeroticdom. Don't get me wrong, I still love it, it's just not real like all the mullets want to believe. the World Wide Fund For Nature foc... / Continue →

    This is a little informational graphic explaining how grenades work. And don't worry -- you're not the only one who thought there was an explosive genie trapped inside. I'm right here with you. Which reminds me, did I ever tell you about the time a group of ruthless terroris... / Continue →

    If you're anything like me you drink out of your hands or directly from a container because you don't have any glasses. I know, I know, we're classy. But for those of you that prefer to look ridiculous, there's the $7 Trunk Sipper, a straw that makes you look like an elephant... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Edward J, being the intrepid lil' experimenter that he is, mixed-and-matched the president's faces on currency notes because he wanted to know what Honest Abe would look like without an honest beard. Kissable, that's how. A while ago I was having a slow day ... / Continue →

    Artist and Geekologie Reader Eric Tryon went and made himself a skeletal bicycle. It's fully functional and the arms and head move whenever you make a turn. Plus, it looks like you're humping a demon skeleton, so ghosts won't mess with you. Hit the jump for a closeup.... / Continue →

    There's a new lip gloss in town, ladies. And it lets men know when you're feeling, how should I say -- corndoggy. The Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Lip Gloss was invented in California. A spokesman for makers Too Faced said: "The colours change depending on your emotional... / Continue →

    BAM, a Death Star watermelon. Or is it a watermelon Death Star? Whatever the case, I know I'm not the only one eying that laser. Now I'm not saying I want to have sex with it, but I'm not saying I don't either because I'm playing it cool. Trust me, superlasers don't go for ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the F35-B, the first supersonic jet capable of vertical take off and landing PLUS HOVER! Sure it's probably existed forever in top secretness, but I get the feeling the government has just now gotten around to declassifying the thing. Now give us the alien ... / Continue →

    This is a girl bodypainted (link NSFW) in a Mass Effect getup (link NSFW). That's all I know, but, honestly, I don't even need to know that to have a good time. Just a bartender and a sword swallower. Hit the jump for the uncensored, arguably NSFW version.... / Continue →

    Little Joseph is a little creepy ass porcelain candle holder. As the candle melts it drips wax onto his face because, I don't know if you knew this about him, but little Joseph has been a very, VERY bad boy. Was that not creepy as shit? I was trying to be, I swear. £69.00 ... / Continue →

    This is being billed as the most accurate flyby of Mars. Which, Jesus, you know things are shitty when the most accurate flyby of Mars is entirely CG. The flyby uses 3D data gathered from HiRISE, the 0.5-meter reflecting telescope on board NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. ... / Continue →

    Many of you are probably thinking I only posted this because I needed something I could just toss up quick and dirty to keep you entertained while I unload a shit-ton of boxes. Well those people are 100% correct and should consider careers in child psychology. jmi3i [izit] ... / Continue →

    Raise your hand if you like outerspace. Everyone? Good. I think outerspace is cool because it's so big. Also, because of the potential for alien sex. And on March 19th, 'Hubble 3D' the movie is dropping in select IMAXs Theaters. I want nachos! ...Through the power of IMA... / Continue →

    So I got in an accident this morning ON MY WAY TO RETURN THE F***ING UHAUL TRAILER. 2,100 miles and the pooch gets screwed in the last ten blocks. Story of my life. And not the fun kind your mommy reads to you before bed. These are custom XBox 360 coffins for when your belo... / Continue →

    Further evidence that no franchise will ever die--they will only hibernate, mutate, and return when you least expect it--here's a peek you can sneak of the newly pluralized Predator movie, Predators. This times things take an unexpected turn when "cold-blooded killers - mercena... / Continue →

    Brazilian LEGOlier Mauricio Vollu went and made this impressive dino skeleton entirely out of LEGO blocks. It's not the first LEGO dino we've ever seen, but it is the boniest. And speaking of which -- did I ever tell you I know the girl with the world's pointiest elbows? I m... / Continue →

    This is the world's smallest scale model of the USS Enterprise. It's tiny. Like, smaller than your penis tiny. Invisible to the naked eye. Or, let's be honest, even the clothed eyes. You poor bastard. Measuring just 8.8-micrometers long, this 1-billionth scale model of th... / Continue →

    The Dew Quiver iPod Shoulder Strap looks like a messenger bag's shoulder strap BUT THERE'S NO BAG ATTACHED! All the stuff it totes it totes INSIDE ITSELF. Just like a kangaroo! Except more like a hollow shoulder strap. Alright, in all seriousness, this thing is the fanny... / Continue →

    This is a video of a man silently destroying the shit out of his laptop at an HP store in China because it wasn't living up to his expectations. Damn, guy, if I quietly destroyed everything that didn't live up to my expectations I, uh, wouldn't have lost my voice so often. Th... / Continue →

    This is a take on C.M. Coolidge's famous dogs playing poker paintings. Except, instead of dogs, it's a bunch of wolverines! Except, instead of wolverine animals, it's a bunch of the superhero! You know, the one with the, uh, aluminumtanium claws. Huh? OF COURSE I'M QUALIFI... / Continue →

    First of all, D-cast like Dreamcast, not D-bag. Secondly, Power Stone II is by far one of the best games ever created, including 'doctor'. Sure you might not get to touch a boob under the guise of early cancer detection, but you weren't going to get to anyways. I do want you... / Continue →

    Well folks, for those of you that don't keep track of things, it's March (and you probably can't find your car keys). Like mid-March. I know, I thought it was still January too. But it isn't. It's March 14th, which -- 3.14 -- Pi Day! And in five years it'll be 3.14.15. Wha... / Continue →
