    Sure it may look like a regular Porsche GT3 wearing a tinfoil helmet so aliens can't read its mileage, but it's actually a pedal-powered scale mockup. HOHO! Now I don't know about you, but I'd pedal that sucker around town and holler at all the fly honeys. Things like, "HOLY... / Continue →

    Dogfight as in airplane battle, not dogfight as in I'm a peenerless d-bag who likes watching pitbulls bite each other. Which, fun fact: if I'm ever diagnosed with terminal cancer I'm coming for you. Me making you chew on a gun aside, this is an awesome jet-fighter scene creat... / Continue →

    F*** I'm getting good at titles. Wanna blow some shit up? You should seek therapy. I jest, pyrotechnics are a natural part of man's being. Like electronics and trying to put your wiener in everything that isn't nailed down. And some that are. I'm looking at you, birdhouse... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because that Coke gets sticky and I don't want to ruin your blazer (you look great by the way). This is a video made by the original Mentos and Coke guys featuring a Mentos and Coke powered rocket car. Minus the rockets. And the car. It's more ... / Continue →

    Console font is the brainchild of Dutch graphic designer Varun Vachhar. Now I know what you're thinking, and no, those aren't just a bunch of squiggly lines. That's the alphabet. You know, the thing you would have learned in kindergarten if you weren't too busy gluing your h... / Continue →

    Oh man, how cool would it have been if R2 were actually that big? He wouldn't have had to hang out with that golden wanker C-3 all the time, that's for sure. Carleton's Goodsell Observatory gets turned into R2-D2 by an unknown group of enterprising students -- complete with s... / Continue →

    As a man who's no stranger to hiding in a bathroom stall until the museum of natural history closes and then rubbing his supple, oiled body all over the fossilized remains of some Apatosaurus, I, uh -- is anybody else getting hot? No? Just checking. These are fossils from th... / Continue →

    There are good ideas and there are great ideas. This is a f***ing terrible one. Nuking the oil leak to cover that shit in rubble and seal it off. Plus birth Godzilla! (which, admittedly, I am for) A plan proposed to detonate a nuke to seal off that troublesome oil well is ... / Continue →

    IGN personality and gamer-girl extraordinaire Jessica Chobot recently had her breasts cast and painted in a God of War theme to help raise money for the Keep-A-Breast Foundation (personally, I'd like to see you ladies keep them both). The chestpiece was painted by Sony artist ... / Continue →

    Etsy seller twoeggplants (and a microwave) is selling these super-realistic Game Boy soap bars. They cost $15 apiece, which I think we can all agree is a small price to pay to pretend you're playing Tetris while on the can. Like most of my soap creations, this Game Boy Soap ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because MADD likes it that way. This is a video of a woman leaving the Dallas-Forth Worth International Airport without paying the toll. I don't want to ruin it for you, but suffice it to say she leaves the airport the way you're supposed to: fly... / Continue →

    Let's not kid ourselves: there's nothing funner than dressing up like army men and running around in the woods behind your parent's house. But what do you do when you grow up? You cosplay. It's the (marginally) socially acceptable way to rekindle the joy of youth. Alternati... / Continue →

    Allegedly Warner Bros. is being sued by a German company for taking their proprietary anti-pirating technology and using it without permission. God, and they raised such a stink when I pirated 'Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove'. You outta be ashamed. Per the Hollywood R... / Continue →

    I know we already ran a very informative graphic about prizzono (I spell it differently every time to avoid detection by the man), but here comes another anyway. Specifically, this one is all about internet prongo. I know, I know, you could probably teach the class on interwe... / Continue →

    I'm not even gonna lie: ghosts scare the shit out of me. And I'm not just saying that because they grope me in my sleep, but I did wake up last night to Edward Cullen standing at the foot of my bed. Haha, what do you mean he's a vampire? That bitch was glowin'! Plus rubbin'... / Continue →

  • June 2, 2010
    Note: Video is after the jump because the government implanted a chip (restaurant style tortilla) in my brain that makes me pee myself if I post videos on the front page. This is a printer made out of LEGO blocks, a felt-tip pen and some homebrew electronics. It's seriously i... / Continue →

    Chewbacca I trust, Boba not so much. He seems like the kind of mechanic that'd charge you for a new transmission when he didn't do anything but cut your brakes. Which, fun fact: pedestrians are a poor substitute. Aim for a tree. Not your average mechanics [zanypickle] Than... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because you can and will evacuate your bowls. Seriously, now there's cereal everywhere. I know I promised I'd be the hero of the robotic apocalypse and save humanity and father thousands millions of children, but I'm getting tired of this shit. ... / Continue →

    Yottabytes, best known for being the only bytes named after a Star Wars character, are large. How large? A quadrillion gigabytes large. Huge byte is huge, needs less teeth. As of 2010, no system has yet achieved one yottabyte of storage. In fact, the combined space of all t... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because Dyson isn't paying me anything. What did the balloon say to the Dyson fan? Blow me. Get it? Me neither. This is a balloon obstacle course made entirely out of Dyson's new bladeless fans. Dyson engineers were asked to show how induceme... / Continue →

    Remember Japan's plans to put a humanoid robot on the moon by 2015? Well apparently that's only Phase 1 of their $2 billion master plan, because now they want an entire robotic colony on the moon by 2020. Not if I have anything to do with it! (I don't is the f***ing problem)... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because real men don't cry on the homepage. This is a video of 8-month old Jonathan having his cochlear implant activated and hearing his mother's voice for the first time. It's heartwarming. The burrito I got from a roadside stand last night at... / Continue →
