    This is one in a series of vintage ads for current websites as imagined by Brazilian advertising agency Moma. Mmmm, I can almost smell the old magazines. the ads were designed for an upcoming media seminar with the overall theme of "what's new today, is old tomorrow", so they... / Continue →

    This is a love note some girl wrote a boy confessing her feelings for him through the use of a literary device known as the Tetris simile. I was about to tear her apart for claiming that's about to be a Tetris in the picture when there are clearly pieces missing, but then I re... / Continue →

    This is an excerpt from a bathroom book printed like ten years ago that states that Avatar will probably never make it to the big screen. Hoho, little did they know. That said, I never actually got around to seeing it. Does that make me cooler than you? No. But it does mak... / Continue →

    Relax, they're bad guys, bro. They work for Bowser. They're not even worth burying. God, if I beat myself up every time I stomped an enemy I'd be in the ICU all the f***ing time. And not just because I like the pudding, but I did contact the food distributor and they won't ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of the keyboard throwing portion of the Soviet Special Olympics. Now I don't want to ruin it for you, but suffice it to say contestant number three gets disqualified. And not for doping either, although you and I both know he was on the vodkas. I don't ... / Continue →

    This is an informational graphic all about South Park. Except this is by no means the whole thing so you need to hit the jump to see it in its entirety. It's like if my penis was a Geekologie article there's no way I could post it on the front page without it crushing all the... / Continue →

    That's right, a jet-powered school bus that tops out at 367MPH. Wow, just imagine what they could have done with the short bus I used to ride. I can see it now: "Liftoff in 3...2...DAMMIT GW -- STOP LICKING THE SEAT AND PUT YOUR HELMET BACK ON!" Indy Boys Inc, an Indianapoli... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for the probably NSFW shot of the part of a wiener that connects to the body. What is that even called, the trunk? Apparently a British man trying to sell his 1996 MG MFT on eBay accidentally uploaded a risque picture meant for his Craigslist man-seeking-anyt... / Continue →

    Remember the washing machine that failed to clean a brick? Well here it is again with a face. Not so funny now, is it? Yes, yes it is too. As a matter of fact, it's even funnier. Unfortunately, all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put the washer back toget... / Continue →

    I lay in bed all day with a laptop burning my genitals so I don't have a neck-craning problem when it comes to viewing my monitor. No, what I have is a giant gut in the way which is why I've learned to read the screen upside-down and backwards using the sex-mirror I double-sid... / Continue →

    Note: Video after the jump is VERY NSFW due to language and subtitles. Also, it may spoil the end of LOST if you haven't seen it (the smoke monster kills everybody). This is a rap song by duo Sidecar entitled 'You F***ed It Up', which basically consists of two whinny twinks c... / Continue →

    Seen here dropping like a billion kids off in the deep-end of the pool, whale sharks are mysterious leviathans of the sea. And now, thanks to one man's quest to collect their doodie, some questions might finally get answered. LOLWUT?! Georgia Aquarium zoologist Alistair Dove... / Continue →

    Ed Fries (possibly of Mickey D's Fry Guys) went and made a playable version of Halo 2600, a throwback to what it would have been like to play Halo on the Atari 2600. Honestly, I couldn't tell the difference between this version and the one for the XBox, but maybe some of you h... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a video of every lightsaber ignition/retraction from all the Star Wars films (including the shitty ones). I say allegedly because I have no idea if it actually is and God knows I'm not going to spend the time to find out. Research: I don't do it. Now exper... / Continue →

    This is a little cartoon by Sean Bieri proving that some zombies are about more than just eating brains -- some actually use theirs. Except for that poor schmuck on the end. That's like a zombie GW. Except zombie GW would probably be snacking on a turd thinking it was brains... / Continue →

    Apparently there's a new Sims game coming out that's entirely based in medieval times. That's pretty much all the information I have right now except I'm gonna be a powerful wizard with a dragon mount that I can and will use to torch your whole f***ing castle and kidnap the pr... / Continue →

    According to Dr. Kristen Gates, all we need to do is attach a giant drag-causing balloon to the defunct spacejunk, then sit back and watch it burn as it slowly enters the earth's atmosphere. Interesting concept Doctor, but I suggest we keep exploring our options until we come ... / Continue →

    This is a video of X2 (who looks suspiciously like the illegitimate buttchild of Johnny 5 and WALL-E), an AUTONOMOUS robot built from a LEGO Mindstorms NXT set that can climb and descend stairs on it's own. We aren't even safe upstairs anymore! Do I have your attention now? ... / Continue →

    Okay so maybe Antarctica isn't the desolate wasteland I've always imagined it to be. Yes, yes it is too and there's nothing you can say that'll change my mind. But in the water, well, that's a whole nother can of worms tentacles. A research expedition to Antarctica to study ... / Continue →

    How cute is that? This is right up there with mini-Mega Man, Chun Lil' and, shit, even that six-pound horse. I don't care if you're the gotdamn Grinch, you've gotta admit this makes your heart at least a half-size bigger. Now put those antlers back on your dog and steal me s... / Continue →

    Well, not actually run over them like Bigfoot or Grave Digger would, but it can drive over them. Although that's not actually the purpose. The purpose is so that cars can drive under, thus eliminating bus-stop related traffic jams. Instead of spending millions to widen roads... / Continue →

    Note: High-res shot HERE in case you're a concerned dermatologist. Seen here proving symmetrically-sized tattoos are for backhairless pussies, Avatar tattoo guy just got finished getting Neytiri #6 (lower right). Per some comments he's posted on the Avatar fan board: lol and... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res shot HERE. I love toes. Like, I have a toe fetish. Feet are f***ing disgusting, but some sexy-ass painted toenails? Mmmm mmmm MMMM! One time I even licked my girlfriend's toes so feverishly all her nails grew ingrown. True story. No, not it's not either. ... / Continue →

    This is a pen that looks like a penis. It's supposed to be particularly ergonomic or something, but I don't buy it. What I do buy are pens that don't look like wieners. This BioErgonomic pen is shaped to better fit in the hands. The squatter base helps it rests between the f... / Continue →

    What do you get when you take 500 30-shot fireworks and set them all off at the same time? Haha, besides an opportunity to call 911? Yes -- this video. It takes a little while to get going, but when it does, oh boy, when it does. Almost makes me want to tape a bunch to the ... / Continue →

    Welcome to Cubicle Funland, the happiest place on earth to work. Don't feel like making the trek to the bathroom? Just pee in the ballpit -- your kids do it! Speaking of which: did I ever tell you when I was a kid I used to play treasure hunter and dive to the bottom of the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple kids using their webcam's mirror effect to make Transformer shadow puppets. Minus the shadows. Granted it sounds stupid as hell but they actually do a surprisingly good job and I think I made out at least two recognizable faces. Plus a pig's head.... / Continue →

    This is a Starship Enterprise car emblem in the style of the 'Jesus Fish', 'Darwin Walking Fish', 'Dino Eating the Jesus Fish' and 'Sci-Fi' car emblems. They cost $8 from ThinkGeek and look great on a Prius. But that's it. Don't bother buying one if you drive anything else, ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a man throwing a giant brick into a running washing machine. Can you guess what happens? If you answered, "it eats the brick and turns into a monster", congratulations, you might be five. Just watch the video. Then write a letter to Consumer Reports calli... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger image HERE. These are some impressive looking Star Wars cupcakes by Flickr user lclllc. They kind of have a LEGO vibe to them but maybe that's just me. Also just me: a birthday on the 12th. Kidding, I'm sure there's at least two of us. But that's not ... / Continue →

    Most people don't wear watches anymore because they use their cell phone to tell time, but what happens when Skynet brings down the entire telecommunication system? You're gonna be running around with your head between your legs wondering why everything smells like butthole, t... / Continue →

    This is a well-made faux trailer for Oregon Trail, the movie. For those of you that don't know, Oregon Trail was an awesome educational computer game made back in the mid-70's with graphics that rival Crysis and a storyline that could make Final Fantasies VII and X take turns(... / Continue →

    Pfft, and you thought your helicopter was fast. YOUR HELICOPTER IS SLOW. My Neon goes faster than your helicopter! Just kidding, I drive an Explorer. And it's twice as fast. Plus has torpedoes and razor-blade hubcaps. The Sikorsky X2 isn't even a finished vehicle yet and ... / Continue →

    Luxury water shouldn't exist. As far as I'm concerned, there should only be two grades of water: frugal (that's brown and might make you sick), and plain. We don't need anything higher than that besides beer. The luxury bottled water comes in five colors which represent di... / Continue →

    Despite my dapper Bond-like online persona, but I'm not really a very classy guy. Shocking, I know. I eat off the floor up to a minute after something's been dropped, I rarely change out of the same clothes I slept in (often in the back of my car), and I pee on the street mor... / Continue →

    This is 'The Birds and the Beedrills', a Pokémon themed rap song that uses 151 monsters as sexual euphemisms. It's actually surprisingly good and jam-packed with meaningful lyrics. Provided, "playing with those Jigglypuffs, trying Veno-nat to Squirtle" is meaningful. Which,... / Continue →

    According to a recent study, the Triceratops isn't actually a unique dinosaur species, just a juvenile version of a Torosaurus. Did anybody else's world just get turned upside down? To put things in perspective, this is like thinking you've had sex with a supermodel, only to ... / Continue →

    Seen here putting everything they've learned from Tekken to good use, a group of gamers fought off a couple masked robbers from PC Gamerz gaming cafe in Kaneohe, Hawaii over the weekend. And thankfully for us, the whole altercation was caught on tape. Geek fight! Best quote ... / Continue →

    Geez, could you have made it any creepier looking? Maybe if it had a bunch of bloody hooks tearing at its flesh or something. God that would be so hot aside, this is Telenoid R1, a humanoid robot that "recreates the physical presence of a remote user." The Telenoid R1 robot ... / Continue →

    I wish I'd been this clever in high school. Unfortunately for my early love life, I was not. If only I had a time machine I could go back in time and pass Leslie Labia a cute note like this instead of the one I did. God, the embarrassment. It read, "Mrs. Martin, I shat my p... / Continue →

    This is a box of Streetfighter condoms. Except there's no way they're actually a licensed product and not just a bunch of worn ankle socks in a box. Regardless, this guy uses them exclusively. Fresh from an Asian country that has no respect for intellectual property laws (si... / Continue →

    According to 'Lisa's Wedding', the 19th episode of The Simpson's sixth season (originally aired 15 years ago on March 19th, 1995), Lisa got married today. Granted it was just a fortune-telling daydream, but I still thought it was worth mentioning. It really got me thinking, y... / Continue →
