    Jenni Källberg, aka cosplayer Pixelninja, is back at it, this time with Samus' Gravity Suit from Metroid: Other M. As you can see admit to yourself unless you're a jealous female, she's done an amazing job once again. But if you ARE a jealous female: you could have done bett... / Continue →

    I typically try to avoid peepin' at knobs but I have been known to glance over a urinal divider if I hear an unusually powerful stream. Curiosity aside, this is a doorknob that allows you to see what's on the other side. Which, SPOILER!: your brother masturbating. Hideyuki N... / Continue →

    The TurBaconEpid is a myocardial infarction on a flowery platter. It consists of BLAAAAAHH! -- oh my God I'm so sorry *wiping chin* -- a 20lb pig stuffed with an 8lb turkey, 6lb duck, 4lb chicken (not from can), a cornish hen and quail, bacon croissant stuffing and ten pounds ... / Continue →

    Don't feel bad, turkey, you're not the first one to court a bottle of bourbon, believe me. I was *this close* to marrying one before the EPT came back negative. So yeah, I'm thankful for that. Other things I'm thankful for (in no particular order): The internet Di... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Graeme Taylor aboard a high-speed train using a high-speed camera, replayed in slow motion (just like the title says!). The result is pretty spectacular. It's like Max Payne/Matrix "bullet-time". So watch it and enjoy. Then, get all comatose on tu... / Continue →

    Inspired by anatomy expert (and friend to Geekologie) Jason Freeny and his work, artist/toy-modder Donald "Kodykoala" Kennedy went and created an anatomical cross section of Mega Man. This is it. The one-of-a-kind laser-blastered boy stands 6" tall and is currently for sale o... / Continue →

    Graphic artist Mathijs Sterrenburg (whose favorite video game is Legend of Zelda, FTW!) went and created 120 different variations of the power-up mushroom from the Super Mario franchise. These are them (well, 30 of them, the rest are after the jump). Damn -- how cool would it... / Continue →

    Despite no mention of Back to the Future, Nike is releasing these limited-edition DeLorean Nike Dunks the same year as the movie's 25th anniversary. Coincidence? I don't think so. Made in a sweatshop? Are we NOT gonna need roads where we're going? Influenced by the DMC-12â... / Continue →

    Looks perfectly normal to me. It was funny because Geekologie Reader Chris sent me a link to the actual Street View (HERE, currently unavailable) last week, but the image was already blurred so I had no clue what I was looking at. Then I stumble across this picture today and... / Continue →

    Ever had a boilmaker? I have -- I drank them exclusively one night. I got home and shat on the back of my feet while I was puking. Enter the 'Shot in the Pint' drinking glasses ($20/two). They have a shot glass on one end, and a pint glass on the other. Per product descri... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what a racetrack large enough to have 1,200 Hot Wheels running around at the same time would look like? This. Also, please please please start wondering bigger. I dunno, about naked women or something, you're depressing me. Wondering about giant Hot Wheels track... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, full-res shot RIGHT HERE, YO. This is a picture from Germany of a woman who just gave birth caught by a Google Street View vehicle. Only problem is, it's allegedly a fake. Per a German Gizmodo reader allegedly in the know: I am German and have to tell you it's... / Continue →

    This is a little chart sizing up Lord Vader vs. Lord Voldemort in the battle of dark lords. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE, WHO WILL WIN? SPOILER: Voldemort. WTF? Vader Vs. Voldemort [buzzfeed] Thanks to Erica93, who could whip both their monkey asses and still have time to beat up ... / Continue →

    These emoticon body parts (the boobs of which we will now only refer to as emoticans) were spotted in South Korea advertising a plastic surgeon's many body-altering options (most of which I have absolutely no clue WTF they are). And, since we're on the topic of female bodies, ... / Continue →

    This is the seventh installment in the auto-tuned Symphony of Science series, entitled A Wave of Reason. It's not my favorite in the series, but it's still far better than anything you'd see on MTV. Also, absolutely anything else, including whatever's on Lifetime. And that's... / Continue →

    Harry Potter laser tag wands not your cup of tea? What the f*** are you doing drinking tea in the first place? IT'S TAKING UP VALUABLE STOMACH REAL ESTATE WHERE YOU COULD FIT BOOZE. Anyway, how about a voice-activated Harry Potter wand flashlight? No? Not digging this one ... / Continue →

    Because actually placing calls is soooooo 90's, the FCC is working out the logistics of being able to text 911 during an emergency. What could possible go wrong? Tweeting emergencies, that's what. Several U.S. government agencies have for some time been considering how to pl... / Continue →

    This is a picture of part of the Carina Nebula that bears a striking resemblance to one of my favorite hand gestures to use while driving. And no, not the one where you pretend you're shooting everyone around you with lil' laser blasters, although that is a close second. *pew... / Continue →

    This is a bunch of superheroes minimalized to their bare identification necessities. Can you name them all? I couldn't. I'm still convinced half of them are breakfast cereal mascots. I SEE YOU, COUNT CHOCULA! You too, Quaker Oat-man. Illustrator Fabian Gonzalez strips com... / Continue →

    Trying to visit pr0n sites late at night without your girlfriend waking up? HA -- GIRLFRIEND! Good one, GW. But maybe you need to silence your hunt-and-pecking cubicle-mate before they drive you to stabbing them with a letter opener (I say do it anyways). Enter the $36 Than... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Ferrari F-1 roller coaster in Abu Dhabi. It does 0 to 62 in two seconds and tops out at 150MPH. Impressive, Ferrari roller coaster, but I've gone faster. On a bike. Sure it was in a dream and the bike also flew like the one in E.T., but I'll be damned... / Continue →

    Yeah, you tell 'em, Ottowa Sun! Way to put those under-the-bridge goblins in their...does that say great deals on 2010 and 2011 Subarus?! To the dealership -- test drive, TEST DRIVE! Which, fun fact: I've actually gotten in two accidents test driving cars in the past. Three... / Continue →

    We've seen laser-printed beef jerky business cards, but how about some raw-ass meat? YOW YOW! That Thanksgiving honey-baked ham never had it so good. Get it? Because it was raised inhumanely and then slaughtered! But shedding light on the ham-hocking industry isn't the pur... / Continue →

    Have I ever told you I used to rest my head against the microwave whenever I was cooking something in it growing up? I did? Oh. Well I have trouble forming new memories now. But I do remember the time I dragged an extension cord out to the middle of the backyard and hooked ... / Continue →

    The $55 Snow Toolbelt from skate/snowboard clothing manufacturer 686 was designed for men of winter who don't want to carry around a pocketful of screwdrivers for fear of falling and puncturing a lung. Which is a very real possibility. It feature 8, 10 and 11mm wrenches, a bo... / Continue →

    Micheal is a man. A man with no arms, but a love for firearms. Which -- I'm not gonna lie: that's a pretty cruel one, God. Squeezing the trigger of the pistol with the toes on his left foot and aiming with his steadying right foot, he warns: 'Tell them: "If they want to come... / Continue →

    Look at the picture. What do you see? No, they're not whale sperm. Although I did hear the heads on those things are like the size of tennis balls. Okay, so I didn't so much hear that as just make it up, but I do want you to spread it around for me anyway, okay? Also, this... / Continue →

    This video is from 2006 and has over a million views, so you've probably already seen it. I hadn't though, and since it's Sunday, I'm entitled to do whatever I damn well please. Including, and not just limited to, drinking at 9AM. Breakfast never tasted so good! Anyway, thi... / Continue →
