    Maddie Chambers went and built herself a super impressive looking Bag End hobbit hole dollhouse. It's amazing. I posted a couple more pictures after the jump, but Maddie has between two and three billion on her website which you should go check out to see the whole thing. My... / Continue →

    The U.S. Special Forces is all set to test the new XM-25 Individual Airburst 'Smart Gun' this summer. And you all know what that means: I actually have no idea what that means. The gun fires a 25-millimeter "smart round" that can be detonated at pre-programmed distance, sprea... / Continue →

    Humans and neanderthals GOT IT ON. I'm talking GOT IT ON LIKE DONKEY KONG. Kidding, it was totally more like Galaga, but still. Neanderthals mated with some modern humans after all and left their imprint in the human genome, a team of biologists has reported in the first det... / Continue →

    There's nothing worse than buying a case of beer and getting it home (or to the backseat of a friend's waiting car) only to discover the beers inside are warm (or filled with concrete). That's why I always dig for a case in the back. But for those of you that don't have Einst... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a cloud taken by Michael Longergan. It's a Yoda face-shaped cloud. Granted you could argue it's just a cloud shaped cloud, but you would lose. May the cumulus be with you [badastronomy] Thanks to Phil, who's so good at astronomy Pluto comes when he calls... / Continue →

    That's right folks, Lord Jesus Christ has returned, and some WOMAN has already run him over with a car. Typical. Police say a Pittsfield woman has been cited for running down a man named Lord Jesus Christ as he crossed a street in Northampton on Tuesday. Christ was in a mar... / Continue →

    Kidding, there's no such thing as too far when it comes to bacon. Except I'm vegetarian so the closest I ever come is fake bacon which tastes like shit every time I eat i which is often because I'm always hoping the next time it doesn't. But it never fails to disappoint. You... / Continue →

    Always thought you'd make a good Han Solo? You're the only one. It's true, your mom thought you should audition for Jar Jar. But now you can fulfill your dreams anyway with JibJab's 'Star Wars: Starring You'. You just go to the website, upload some pictures of you and your ... / Continue →

    Note: Added a video of Stabby McKillhumans after the jump. A group of sick German scientists have taken it upon themselves to study robot-inflicted injuries to humans. They're not good. Plus they hurt. Boom, study over! The tests involved a robot arm weighing 14kg and a 1.... / Continue →

    They're my kind of people. You can hit the jump to see the ass-packed uncensored shot if you want. And also to explain to me why there's a bear playing between the preacher's legs. What's that? Oh, right. Why there's a cub playing between the preacher's legs. *zing!* Hi... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for the high-res version so you can see all the parts. You know you're curious about the anus, don't even lie! Ever wonder what a Golfish cracker looks like on the inside? Well now you know. And knowing is half the battle something I often wish I didn't. T... / Continue →

    For realz. On their heads. The species is only a few millimetres wide and scientists say it looks like a flying saucer with a cluster of gonads, or sex organs, on top. "It's absolutely different from every other jellyfish that's ever been known," Dr Gershwin said. "So we no... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video is after the jump. I'm serious -- I don't care how super your sperm are, they aren't powerful enough to make the video appear on the front page. A Star Wars themed baby announcement video: can you think of a better way to tell your friends and family you're pregna... / Continue →

    That Street Fighter short I mentioned a couple days ago? Here's the full thing, friends. It's three minutes of basically what we all thought Street Fighter 3 would be like back when Street Fighter 2 came out and Mortal Kombat-esque video capture seemed like it was going to be t... / Continue →

    Find yourself perpetually drunk? You might have a drinking problem. Kidding, I'm sure you're fine. But if you ever have trouble getting your key in the door (typically I'd use that as a metaphor for sex-bangin', but not in this case) then you may wanna check this key slut ou... / Continue →

    So apparently 2K Sports was running a contest in which the first person to pitch a perfect 9-innings in MLB 2K10 would win a cool $1 million (sorry, no prizes for yelling FIRST! in the comments). And some guy did it within 24-hours of the game's release. Impressive, but I did... / Continue →
  • May 6, 2010
    NOTE: 9-minute video of the thing hacking through raw meat, ice blocks, wood and other shit is after the jump. It's worth watching, but I recommend skipping around. Or prancing -- I won't judge! This is a commercial for Cold Steel's Two Handed Great Sword. It costs $550 an... / Continue →

    NOTE: These two panels don't make any sense by themselves so you have to click HERE to see the whole comic. Otherwise you won't get it. Not that you will anyways, but you should at least give yourself a fighting chance. Pfft, you can get around that. All you need to do is t... / Continue →

    Did you know it was hamburger month? Neither did I. But apparently White Castle has licensed burger-scented candles to celebrate the occasion. That's cool. Granted not as cool as the fact I live just a hop, skip and jump from the In-N-Out on Sunset Blvd., but SUCK IT I EAT ... / Continue →

    Don't worry, I've already reprimanded myself for the title. You ever belted yourself in the mirror before? It builds character. Plus welts on your buttcheeks. So, how's your keyboard lookin'? (Great segue, GW. Thanks, I thought so) If your keyboard looks like shit or you... / Continue →

    It would look like this. You have to hit the jump to see the rest of what happens though. Or don't. I didn't make it so I don't really care if you see it or not. You'll just be missing out when I mention it in a future post and you have no idea what I'm talking about. And ... / Continue →

    Well folks, it's Cinco de Mayo. And you know what that means: I've been drinking margaritas since eight AM and don't know what my name is anymore. Kidding, it's Juanito. Anyways, before I forget -- these are some Star Wars themed Mexican Lotería (kind of similar to bingo) c... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video is after the jump dammit. I always thought the whole John Connor bit was a bunch of bullshit. And you know what? I was right for once in my Godforsaken life. This is the video evidence proving what Terminators are REALLY sent back for. Which SPOILER ALERT: is... / Continue →

    This is a mashup of the cast of Futurama as Southpark children by deviantARTist MooseCake. Good job. Although truthfully I don't watch either show anymore. You see, I lost my TV privileges for playing with myself during a dinosaur special on the Discovery Channel. I swear I... / Continue →

    DeviantARTist YourRain went and made a Resident Evil themed cake to celebrate her birthday and graduation. What'd you graduate from, zombie boot camp? I'm not very good at making cakes, but I love how this turned out. =) (And it was actually pretty tasty!) I made it for my... / Continue →
  • May 5, 2010
    NOTE: Hit the jump for the video. And I encourage you to make a noise when you do it and tell the rest of us what it sounded like in the comments. The one I made sounded like one of those slide-y doors on Star Trek. If you're a longer short-time reader of Geekologie and not ... / Continue →

    Wow, what an absolute COINCIDENCE the the FAREWELL columns just so happen to spell 'PENIS'. I mean, what are the chances? Reminds me of my senior quote in the high school yearbook. It spelled, "SCHOOLS FOR FOOLS EAT MY GRUNDLE" if you read down the left column. Can you beli... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video is after the jump and NSFW due to some prison language. This is a ten-minute video compilation of WTF moments in television and movie history from across the globe. It's scary as hell, I'm not gonna lie. You've probably seen at least some of the videos, but there... / Continue →

    The Rain Drum (why didn't you call it the Drumbrella?!) is a conceptual umbrella designed by Dong Min Park to provide a little musical accompaniment to a walk through the rain. You see (or hear!), each section of the umbrella is supposed to make a different drum sound (snare, ... / Continue →

    In a case of life imitating art (in this case, comic book art), a man dressed as Spiderman stopped a would-be thief from stealing a $160 comic on Free Comic Book Day this last Sunday. He was aided in his crime-fighting by two Jedi knights and The Flash. Not even kidding. Ade... / Continue →

    This is a laser suit created by Wei-Chieh Shih, who may or may not have made the similar looking one Rihanna wore during the American Movie Awards last year. Or maybe Wei-Chieh just stole the idea. Or maybe whoever created the one for Rihanna stole the idea from the guy who m... / Continue →

    A group of scientists from around the world have successfully recreated woolly mammoth blood, reigniting the Geekologie Writer's hopes of some steamy dino lovin' in the not-too-distant future. You know, it's amazing what scientists can accomplish when they're not busy perving ... / Continue →

    Stephen Hawking, best known for once beating me in a battle of the brains by an incredibly narrow margin (I dominated him in an arm-wrestling rematch), has taken to explaining how humans might be able to time travel into the future. It sounds difficult. Plus expensive (read: ... / Continue →

    Can't decide what kind of tattoo to get? Just go for a collage like this piece by tattoo artist Carly Shephard. Alternatively, drink till you black out at the bar across the street from the tattoo parlor and see whose name you wake up with inked across your genitals. I don't... / Continue →

    May 4th is Star Wars Day, so yeah, Happy Star Wars Day. You're supposed to run around telling everyone, "May the 4th be with you" because it's a Star Wars related pun, but I'm just gonna start drinking after breakfast instead. And since tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo I probably wo... / Continue →

    This is another conceptual USB-powered microwave. I have no idea if the thing is even feasible because I don't understand anything about electricity except sticking a butter knife in a power outlet didn't give me "the most epic boner" like my friend said it would AND I TRIED T... / Continue →

    Vivid Entertainment is releasing a parody of the original 1960's Batman series in pr0n form. I figured it was gonna be a gay piece focusing on Batman and Robin's obvious homosexual relationship, but apparently not. I'm not buying it. Literally AND figuratively. Holy porn pa... / Continue →

    I know, I can't read the word bust without thinking about my face buried in one either. I guess it's a curse. Like F***ING @$$HOLE, except it won't get you kicked out of a fancy restaurant for yelling it at your waiter. But enough about my lunch experience, this is a Termina... / Continue →

    UPDATE: Okay so apparently I already posted this a while ago. What -- I've been drinkling, okay?! Allegedly this is a picture of God reaching for a fiery burrito. I believe it too because that does look like a hand and that does look like a burrito. Great, now I'm hungry.... / Continue →

    This is a robot that balances itself on top of a ball. Impressive, but I've seen a clown at the circus do the same thing while juggling. Plus I winged a handful of peanuts at him. Dr. Masaaki Kumagai, director of the Robot Development Engineering Laboratory at Tohoku Gakuin ... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie Reader Michael's sweet Portal tattoos. Now I know what you're thinking, and no, that's not his gooch. Those are his legs. I think. Walking home, a crowd of youths behind me were trying to figure out they meant. They finally decided they meant I loved cake... / Continue →

    I have no idea where this is posted but it looks like the least fun place on earth. Like Disney Land if after you paid admittance they kneed you in the crotch, stole your wallet, kicked you out of the park and made you slash your own tires. Which -- actually that does sound f... / Continue →
