    Not real people though. They're just molds of real people. It's not like their actual bones are in there. Maybe some teeth and toenails, sure, but no bones. British artist Jason de Caires Taylor's Mexican installation and reef conservation project is for a fine cause. Taylo... / Continue →

    Note: The I'm not spoiling it video is after the jump. If you haven't seen this yet you should watch it. I can't really say anything without ruining it except it all starts as a routine traffic stop (for driving with an odd number of headlights under two) in Russia [insert "i... / Continue →

    Remember the rad to the power of sick steampunk Iron Man costume that took first place at NYCC's Marvel costume contest? Well it turns out the tricky little SOB behind the suit just repainted a Tin Man costume. I HOPE YOU GET TETANUS. The suit was originally a steampunk Tin ... / Continue →

    Note: Must-see video is after the jump. To celebrate the 600-year anniversary of the Old Town Square astrological clock tower in the center of Prague, the city commissioned a video-mapping (other examples of video mapping HERE and HERE) stunt spectacular lightshow to blow your... / Continue →

    Whatever you do, be careful where you sit. Get it? Because you might blow your asscheeks off! I mean, if the mines weren't decommissioned. But since they are, all you have to worry about is sitting on one of the spikey bits. Unless you're into that, in which case so am I a... / Continue →

    A $20K iPhone case? Pfft, what are we, peasants? A $2.5 million one? Please, I've wiped with nicer cell phone cases just because I didn't feel like waddling out to the hall closet for more TP. The world's most expensive phone with a total construction cost of £5 million ... / Continue →

    The internet is a funny place. Kidding, it's mostly depressing. And not "you caught yourself laughing at a little fat girl for falling off her bike" depressing, like actually depressing. Like if I took the time to read all the Geekologie comments I'd probably put both my han... / Continue →

    This is a sweet-ass treehouse that I would live in even if it meant fighting off legions of robotic bears in the dead of night. We'll just have to add night-vision to the laser turrets, no biggie. It looks like 50% Ewok village, 50% that giant stick-ball thing they were tryin... / Continue →

    Note: No matter how many times you try clicking the picture, nothing's going to happen. Hit the jump to watch the video. "GW, that has got the be the most boring-ass screencap of all time". Come on, it looks like Hoth! "Your face looks like a Wampa". Ouch, you're being rea... / Continue →

    This is picture of hipster-ized Harry Potter and friends by deviantARTist MARiKaArt. I'm really feeling Bella's sweater. Huh? Oh, this isn't Twilight? Sorry, sometimes I get my multi-billion dollar franchises confused. Now, what do you say we head down to McDonalds for som... / Continue →

    This is a two-minute video of some dingaling crawling on top of a NYC subway at the 80th Street/Hudson Street station (I'm observant) and riding it to the next one. I have no idea why, but I think it's to promote his rap career because at the end he does mention, "the name is ... / Continue →

    Listen, I love LEGO as much as the next guy who's tried eating a bowl of them with milk (successfully I might add), but I'm on the fence about this LEGO Wiimote. Like, literally -- I've got a fencepost trying to sneak its way right between my buttcheeks. I'm kind of diggin' i... / Continue →

    Note: Videos are after the jump. Use those little arms of yours and push the button. I happen to know how t-rex's walk (bow-legged) because I've traveled back in time and had sex with dozens thousands of them, but this is a pretty accurate representation. They also like to w... / Continue →

    Some jerk went and drilled holes through the shells of his pet turtles so that he could attach wire handles to them and pick them up easier. But turtles don't even like being coddled! Master Splinter, yes. "They do have nerves in their shells, so it would have been painful f... / Continue →

    And if it wasn't for your face getting in the way it might actually be cool. Who are you, Clark Kent's little brother that ate too many kryptonite paint chips growing up? Also, those are some small-ass nipples. I wish I had little nipples like that. Mine are so big they tak... / Continue →

    Man, scientists be all kinds of pissin' me off lately. I may have to start siding with the Juggalos on this one. Thing is, I really don't know how magnets work. I always thought there were tiny wizards in there. Anyway, a group of Slovenian "scientists" are ignorning Asimov... / Continue →

    And it probably used to battle that South America/Africa T-rex. Plus guard Greenland's treasure-trove. Kidding, there is no treasure in Greenland. Actually, there isn't much of anything in Greenland except Yetis and cold. No, I suspect this dragon is guarding something much... / Continue →

    Proving that real vampires aren't attractive and that Edward Cullen character is just a guy who spends waaaay too much time in the makeup aisle at Target, come these two real-life vampires. Apparently they had some deal worked out with a homeless guy to occasionally suck his b... / Continue →

    Apparently Batman (who's a known fast-food thief) robbed a McDonalds in San Francisco last night. Why San Francisco? Because he and Robin retired there to ride rainbows to their hearts' content. But apparently the dong-loving duo have fallen on hard times. Double entendre, ... / Continue →

    The Conversacube is a make-believe product that prevents stagnant conversation on a date by providing constant suggestions of things to say to the troll your mom set you up with. "Your eyes, they're just so....far apart." Lauren McCarthy's idea seems harmless enough - a gadge... / Continue →

    In case you haven't seen it splattered all over the news because you don't believe mainstream media (and you shouldn't), here's one of the rescue capsules that's currently being used to pull the 33 trapped Chilean miners from the darkness almost 1/2 mile below. Did I mention i... / Continue →

    Can't decide which superhero you want on your cake? No problem -- just slap a bunch on there! Just don't slap Hulk's ass, because he can and will get angry ON YOUR FACE. Robin? Not so much. "Holy tweaked nips, Batman -- you could cut glass with those things!" "I know, ... / Continue →

    The Pseudomorph dress is the brainchild of Dutch fashionista (damn yeah I use words like that!) Anouk Wipprecht. As the dress is worn, it colors itself with dripping ink. How exactly does it work? Well let me tell you copy/paste something. *ahem* Today was a sad night. I ... / Continue →

    They should really teach the elements song in school. Then maybe today's youth wouldn't be so stupid. No lie, I asked a kid at the mall yesterday to go in and buy me a novelty shirt from Hot Topik what his favorite element was, and you know what he said? Plastic. F***ing pl... / Continue →

    Darren Suchon is a 42-year old man. An unemployed 42-year old man who likes lying around all day playing Playstation (who doesn't?!). Unfortunately, his live-in girlfriend (wait -- WHAT?!) wasn't so keen on the idea and took his console away from him. RUH-ROH! Colleen Fra... / Continue →

    Stare at the center of the spinner for 30-seconds and then immediately look away from your monitor at your hand. What'd you see? Because I saw my fingers going all nitrous "WAH WAH WAH" on me, and then vomit coming out from under my nose. After that, my eyes got watery. MAG... / Continue →

    This is the steampunk Iron Man that won Marvel's costume contest at the recent New York Comic Con. I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty damn impressive. Plus sessy. You ever made love to a Victorian-age superhero before? I haven't, but I did make out with somebody's grandma once... / Continue →

    Living in LA, I'm no stranger to the homeless. Like, literally -- they're my kind of people: crazy as f*** and willing to piss on anything. That said, dude you got a Dell! I would have opted for a refrigerator box, but hey, to each their own. One time I traded a clove to a ... / Continue →

    An $18 plush Mario backpack: arguably the best deal I've posted on Geekologie in awhile (not including the time I offered up a kidney for a mouthful of a beer). Take home this cute Super Mario Bros. Mario Plush Backpack today! The backpack features Mario in classic attire. Mar... / Continue →

    Aural fetish "scientists" at the University of South Hampton claim they've developed a biometric ear scanner than can identify individuals with almost perfect accuracy. I'm skeptical, but still cutting both my ears off tonight. Suck it, Van Gogh -- GO BIG OR GO HOME! Biometr... / Continue →

    In reality, everything is edible, it might just be your last meal. Plutonium? You CAN put it in your mouth. Spiders too, except they probably WON'T kill you. But they will lay eggs in your tonsils! Haha -- have fun dreaming about that one tonight! Anyway, oven-baked edibl... / Continue →

    Virgin Galactic, best known for making me chuckle every time I hear it because I'm seven and refuse to grow up (I buy black market fairy dust from this geezer named Tootles), successfully tested their suborbital spaceship over the weekend. Just not in space. Baby steps, yo! ... / Continue →

    Apparently a DC cop responding to a call managed to make his way through the closed set of Transformers 3 and ended up taking Bumblebee to Plow Town during an unscripted scene of auto-eroticism. Woopsie. While the movie was filming a car chase scene on 3rd Street and Maryland... / Continue →

    Inflatable tanks were used in both world wars so this isn't exactly new news but I'm posting it anyway with the hopes Russia sends me some free vodka for the good publicity. So, yeah -- Russia has ordered a boatload of blow-up army vehicles at a cost of almost $3,200 per piece... / Continue →

    Note: Viagra-sized version of the chart HERE. This is a chart showing women's preferences of various sized wieners. Basically you want to fall into the red-hot or sessy-magenta zones, which is a shame because I'm way off the chart in the upper right. Like, a mile off. As a ... / Continue →

    Some loving mother made her daughter a pink "fairy princess" Darth Vader costume to wear in this year's Dragon*Con parade. Good looking, mom. It's nice to know not every mother these days is cool sending their young daughter out the door in a golden bikini. Just sayin', not ... / Continue →

    This is horribly crappy camera-phone video of a teacher going nuts on some high school students and eventually throwing chairs, including one through a window. You don't actually see too much on account of the camera-phoner sucking 200% at life AND videography, but you can cer... / Continue →

    Google, a company best known for originally being named Booble, has been secretly developing self-driving vehicles behind our backs. Also, testing them on the roads of California without warning. Pull over, you're under arres....WTF!? Google announced Sunday that it has deve... / Continue →

    Remember the scene (that I so lovingly screencapped) from Willy Wonka where Wonka shows those ungrateful little turds the gum that has a three-course meal packed inside? Well apparently a non-nutritive version of the gum is on it's way. Damn girl, your breath be kickin'. *s... / Continue →

    So yesterday at 10:10 it was 10:10, 10/10/10. I meant to celebrate but I started playing Peggle and forgot when it was getting close both times. Moving on: Carrie Fischer admitted to snorting the cocaines while filming on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back. Pfft, some princess... / Continue →
