    In a case of art (programs) imitating life, here's the real adobe photo shop. Get it? Because it's an adobe photo shop. Now let's head in there and get some old-timey pictures made. I get to be the whore in the bathtub with a shotgun! Adobe Photo Shop Spotted [techeblog] ... / Continue →

    If there's one thing I can't stand it's being awake. Last night I dreamed I went to a Korean karaoke bar that also had a giant buffet set up on pool tables. I kept going for the miniature hotdogs on hamburger buns but none of them were vegetarian. Any idea what that means? ... / Continue →

    Always wanted a tiger or panda bear but were worried they'd maul the faces off everyone in the neighborhood? That's because they would. Thankfully, now you can have your dog dyed to look like one. Because why stop at just chopping off their balls? Hit the jump for several m... / Continue →

    This is an English couple caught mid-dry coitus by a Google Street View car despite the fact they insist they were only kissing. Uh, I don't know you do it across the pond, but that's not how I kiss. Yes, yes it is too -- my uncle taught me! The couple--Eddie Bateman and his... / Continue →

    This is a paper shredding coffee table. It's called the Papervore but it looks more like an Anythingthat'llfitinthatslitavore if you ask me. Unsurprisingly, it's a real-ass product and will set you back a ridiculous $1,950 if you don't have the taste and decency to make your ... / Continue →

    What you're looking at is the MotoCzysz E1pc, the world's fastest electric motorcycle. Also, worst named. MotoCzysz E1pc, really? Sounds like a retarded computer hacker. Even though it looks like multiple rows of batteries with two wheels on either side, it's the most advan... / Continue →

    Stationary that looks like email icons: I swear, what will they think of next? And don't say, "stationary that looks like Microsoft Office icons" or I'll probably shit myself and die. Designed by Brigada Creativa, this collection of stationary is sure to confuse any recipient... / Continue →

    Hang up your thinking caps, inventors, because you'll never top bacon pancakes and they were invented decades ago. Possibly by Aunt Jemima herself, who may or may not be related to George Washington Carver. Get it? Because they were both black ahead of their time. F*** I lov... / Continue →

    Note: Trailer is after the jump because there should never be a video featuring a guy about to get his nuts sawed in half on the front page. Wait, that's not true. Hot on the heels of the 'WTF was that?' Mortal Kombat movie trailer or whatever the hell it was comes this previ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because I couldn't live with myself if anybody accidentally put an eye out on the front page. Jack Streat went and built himself a fully functional Lee Enfield sniper rifle out of LEGO Technics. And by 'fully functional' I mean the thing can accu... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because guy beats the shit out of his computer and I don't want your computer to get scared and think you're gonna do the same. This is a video of some girl deleting her boyfriend's favorite World of Warcraft avatar and then secretly filming his r... / Continue →

    Sorry for the late start today folks, the internet was booboo when I woke up and instead of going to Starbucks I decided to yell at pedestrians from my balcony. Seems to have done the trick! Ever made love on the back of a dead alien before? I have. Ripley never had it so g... / Continue →

    Oh God, the GW has gone and waded past the buoys marking the shallow end and is posting pictures of bushes again -- and not the good kind. Oh ye of little faith, you know I wouldn't do that to you (yes, yes I 100% would and not feel bad about it either). You see, that ain't n... / Continue →

    I don't know why this story is just now making its way around the internet since I remember reading it back in '07 when it came out and forgetting to post it because I drink too much, but whatever. We all have our demons. Mine's booze. Little Hans Jørgen Olsen? His happene... / Continue →

    This is an Australian wind farm that, when viewed from above, looks suspiciously like a bunch of USB cables. What's up with that?! Now I'm not saying this proves my conspiracy theory about the Australian government being infiltrated by aliens so they can use the continent as ... / Continue →

    Note: Video's after the jump because Mario's a little shy after putting on a couple extra pounds. This is a stop-motion video of a Post-It note Mario running around a school. Or maybe it's a hospital. Either way, it's somewhere I don't want to be. Like work. F*** I hate th... / Continue →

  • June 9, 2010
    Note: Video is after the jump because even I peed a little and I'm exposed this this sort of thing everyday. Autonomous drones that can assemble themselves into a flying mothership. Crap. Seriously -- I think something just squeaked by but I'm afraid to look. For those of y... / Continue →

    In big tobacco's attempt to appeal to our (well, your) children without the use of a hip, anthropomorphic camel with a shlong the size of a fire hose, here's some LEGO cigarettes. Impressive, but could you imagine actually smoking those? I can, but only because I used to huff... / Continue →

    This is a really crappy superhero (read: superfailro) action figure picked up at some toy show. He's a combination of at least four popular crime-fighters. Basically he's got Spiderman's body, painted like Superman's, but with Batman's cape (dyed red), Iron Man's arc-reactor ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump for fear of accidentally FATALITY-ING your ass all over the front page. This is a video making its way around the interwebs that appears to be an 8-minute trailer for an upcoming Mortal Kombat movie. Oooooor it may be some viral marketing for a n... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a UFO spotted above Australia over the weekend. No word on if it actually contained aliens, but that's because the only people who saw it aren't talking and their butts hurt. Some described it as a "lollipop-type swirl". Others say it hovered for a while ... / Continue →

    At first I was gonna ask for all the original He-Man action figures, but now all I want is an anti-robot laser. Suck it, two front teeth! (You should have watched where that mule was kicking anyways) If you own an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), here's piece of advice: don't ... / Continue →
