    This is a picture of two people with the images of their profiles reversed. It's a terrible misuse of Photoshop and I don't like it. Not one bit. I don't care if the chick has tits on her back, she's giving me nightmares. And, if I play my cards right, a hug. Reversed Prof... / Continue →

    Sure you could argue it's the opposable thumbs or variety of humorously named sexual positions we've invented, but you'd be wrong. We're the only one working hard at making ourselves obsolete. Which, I should note, is different from extinct. I'm looking at you, lemmings. Ki... / Continue →

    Note: Due to harmful levels of black magic, video is after the jump. Do not watch if you are nursing, pregnant or may become pregnant if I do a card trick. This is a little demonstration of the dark arts in the form of an optical illusion. Or, as I like to call them, devil e... / Continue →

    The $20 Mini Donut Factory may look identical to the Mini Cupcake Maker, but the similarities stop there! No, no they don't either. They're the same machine with a different insert. One makes cupcake shapes, the other buttholes. Both will make you fat if used in excess. It... / Continue →

    Analog Tetris is just like the digital version except not as fun. Or portable. Plus lines don't disappear at the bottom when you fill them. It probably shouldn't even be called Tetris. Video games are present in our lives for diversion, just like TV and computer games. But ... / Continue →

    But not really. I'd actually feel cooler wearing Geordi La Forge glasses because at least then people would think they're x-ray specs when I'm staring at their crotch and laughing. Now they just think I'm a creep. Look3D is one of a handful of companies readying "designer" 3... / Continue →

    I think it's like Star Trek holodecks, plus dreams, plus The Matrix, plus shots that make you think "I'm watching a THRILLER." But since it's directed by Christopher Nolan, for now I'll trust it won't make me as angry as that description does. Here's the new trailer: Continue ... / Continue →
