    Back in 2008, Pittsburghers Aaron and Christine Boring (*yawn*) began the process of suing Google for invasion of privacy after a Google Street View car trespassed 1,000 feet up their private drive (marked 'NO TRESPASSING') to take pictures. Finally, a settlement has been reac... / Continue →

    Remember the XM-25 Smartgun we've reported on in the past? Of course not, you can't even remember where you parked your car at the mall. BY MACY'S NOT BLOOMINGDALES YOU DINGALING. Anyway, the XM-25 is officially in the hands of troops in Afghanistan and shoots grenades that ... / Continue →

    WARNING: Picture after the jump is graphic on account of one of the bloodiest ears I've ever seen. "Eh, I've seen bloodier." Good for you. A Texas man was unseriously injured after his Motorola Droid exploded in his ear after ending a call. TOLD YA'LL YOU CAN'T TRUST THOSE ... / Continue →

    The Balloon Bench from Japanese design firm h220430(?!?!) may look like a bench being floated away by balloons, but it's just an illusion. Also, the tooth fairy isn't so much a fairy as a goblin that tries to impregnate you with demon babies while you sleep. Which is exactly ... / Continue →

    Note: Please don't squint and damage your eyes -- God knows they've already suffered enough from all the masturbating. Click HERE to see a high-res version. This is the (Subjective) Timeline of the Best Gifts Ever. I guess it's not really Christmas-specific like I mentioned ... / Continue →

    Perfect for the 6-year old boozehound in your life. (We all know one) Adult Bev. Co. is releasing a line of alcoholic beverages based on the shit you loved to drink as a kid. WHAT, NO TANG?! Kidding, I never drank Tang growing up, but I did try tinkle once. YES MY OWN, SICKO... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Tom D sent me a link on behalf of his friend, Adam Watson, who's currently working on a Dr. Seuss/Star Wars mashup project. Basically, they're Star Wars characters in the style of Dr. Seuss. I think they're pretty spot on if you ask me. And speaking of spot... / Continue →

    This is a nativity made entirely out of meat. Okay, and some hash browns and pretzel sticks. I particularly love how all the wise men are wearing tin-foil helmets. Star of Bethlehem: miraculous sign or alien spacecraft. Only baby Jesus knows for sure, and he's not talking. ... / Continue →

    Personally, I hot-glue my ladyfriend hot-glues magnets to the back of beer bottle caps to stick things (grocery lists, dino doodles, photobooth pictures, etc.) to the fridge. I dunno, something about being ultra-classy. Plus it goes with my alcohol motif. But maybe your kitc... / Continue →

    Can you say YOUR armed forces' supercomputer was built entirely out of gaming consoles by the same company who invented the Walkman? I think not! Enter the Air Force's 1,760 Playstation 3 supercomputer, allegedly the 33rd largest supercomputer IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.* Yes, t... / Continue →

    SPOILER: it's on earth, in a poisonous lake here in California. Wait, what?! BOOOOOOOOO!! I was hoping for some of those bug-eyed bastards with the glowing fingers and androgynous nether-regions. You know -- some sessy-ass aliens. In a surprising revelation, NASA scientist... / Continue →

    I hate needles. Needles and robots can both go jump into a volcano as far as I'm concerned. Preferably one that leads straight to hell. But NOT a beach, because I stepped on a needle at the beach once and -- joking, that was a jellyfish. Still hurt though. Not as bad as th... / Continue →

    Why so serious, Luke? Geekologie Reader Dave made these paper snowflakes (Boba Fett & clone trooper version after the jump) with his children to use as Christmas decorations. You can make some yourself if you'd like -- you don't even need kids! But you will need scissors, so... / Continue →

    This is a picture from San Jose, California somebody snapped of real-life Mario and Luigi walking down the street. As you can see, it looks like Mario wants to shove a red-shell up the photographer's ass. Luigi? He's probably ordering a pizza. Or sexy-talkin' Peach. "Remem... / Continue →

    Remember ThinkGeek's fake 'Canned Unicorn Meat' April Fools' product? Well it turns out they made it into a real product (that consists of a dismembered stuffed-animal unicorn in a can), and German customs isn't too thrilled people are trying to import it. Per an email receiv... / Continue →

    Allegedly some guy's girlfriend played with some other dude's wiener and he was all "not cool!" and they broke up. So what did he do? Logged into her Netflix account and rated movies until all her suggestions were about infidelity. Boy, you sure got her good! Sitting at the... / Continue →

    So apparently they're going to build a full-scale replica of Noah's Ark outside of Cincinnati. How big is full scale? HUUUUUUUUUGE. I think. But apparently still not big enough to accommodate any dinosaurs. It's enough to make a man question his faith. Answers In Genesis,... / Continue →

    Let's not kid ourselves: any urn without a really badass looking dragon on top is creepy. And an urn that looks like your ugly mug is just about as creepy as they come. Obviously, the only thing worse would be genitalia-shaped urns, which I can't believe I just wrote. I bet ... / Continue →

    I can't count how may hours of my youth were spent having checker wars with plastic army men. And not just because I'm a bad counter, but I did give the bartender $17 for a $62 tab last night. Ha, not tip, in total. Apparently I'm not welcome back there. Anyway, these are p... / Continue →

    Did anybody else know there was a bed in that thing? Because I didn't. Of course, you could write a small pamphlet about all the the things I don't know. Sike! They'd all fit on one side of a Post-It. Anyway, some talented craftsman is selling the Tardis pull-out bed he ma... / Continue →

    Note: Check the filename if you're really having trouble. Also, never attempt the hidden-picture on the back of a Highlights. I bet Han shot first after all! Get it? Because he's a selfish lover! Greedo Was A... [buzzfeed]... / Continue →

    Note: Video of the cycle's maiden voyages after the jump. Remember the replica Light Cycles that Parker Brothers Choppers (not to be confused with the makers of Monopoly, Clue and Sorry!) were selling commissions for on eBay? Well the first couple have been made, and there's ... / Continue →

    Sadly, cell phone jammers are illegal in the U.S. because this country believes in allowing the loudest, most annoying people to talk freely on their cell phones wherever they want -- usually right next to you. Which reminds me: I was at Target the other day stocking up on Mag... / Continue →

    But it was just an old horror movie set! But did that stop police from spending 8-hours overtime investigating the scene before realizing it was fake? You can bet your rubber severed leg and Karo-syrup blood it didn't! Firefighters who responded to a hotel blaze stumbled upo... / Continue →

    Smokey the Bear isn't laughing. This is a video from a Youtube user dalemclmm testing REI's Storm Proof Matches. Tests include: burial, stomping and water-dousing, then all three at once. I'm not really surprised the matches survive considering they're sulfur-coated (versus ... / Continue →

    I can't tell if this is better or worse than the World of Warcraft players that also bought fleshlights but -- just kidding, this is way worse. So to recap: playing WoW and using a fake vajayjay > playing CoD and sitting in your own homemade fudge. Unless you're actively plea... / Continue →

    "Come heeeeeere, little Anakin". Geez, no wonder he Vaded out, amirite? I assume this is some kind of knock-off novelty product from overseas based on C3's come hither look. You know, and the fact his peen is a roll of tape. But who knows, with George Lucas being the mone... / Continue →

    This is a College Humor produced song and music video entitled 'Cosplay With My Heart'. It's supposed to be a parody of some song by Bruno Mars, who I just had to do some research to discover isn't the super-flamboyant judge from Dancing with the Stars. Hey, you learn somethi... / Continue →

    If you haven't heard about this already, you can go to Google Translate and create your own fresh beats to rap over, record, and then use to seal a record deal. God knows you have more talent than most of the asshats on the radio -- and you're practically talentless! Instruct... / Continue →

    Warms the heart, doesn't it? It really does. I love how they're not even standing on the ground, but in chairs and on the table. Safety first, you know? Oh, and for all you 3 to 7-year old Geekologie readers out there, these are NOT the girls you're gonna want to date in te... / Continue →

    I honestly didn't know Teva still made sandals. I thought that fad had come and gone years ago. *ahem* You're next, teen paranormal romance! Vampire sex. You girls oughta be ashamed. Teva sandals are no longer for granola-crunching outdoors types. Now the fashion-conscious... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. Brazilian designer/illustrator Maicon Costa (aka Maicon MCN) sent me this alphabet poster he created using nothing but video game related graphics (not to be confused with this hand-drawn version). Now, not to toot my own trombone or anything, but I... / Continue →

    See what I did there with his name? I managed to smash "ice" onto the end. That's the kind of stuff they don't teach you in blogging college, folks. Nope, that's the kind of literary mastery you can only gain from years of sticking made-up words into crossword puzzles. You ... / Continue →

    Where they belong. *closes eyes and imagines the Terminator falling into that vat of molten steel at the end of Judgement Day* MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Love that feeling. So yeah, this is a WALL-E and EVE cake made by Charm City Cakes. You could argue it's untimely because the... / Continue →

    In a recent act of actually doing something useful instead of trying to kill us all with robots/determine which animal has the biggest balls, scientists have taken a step towards the proverbial fountain of youth. Which may or may yes involve genetic manipulation. I'm gonna be... / Continue →

    Looking for that perfect gift idea for the Back to the Future fan in your life? How about a 1/18 stainless steel scale model of the DeLorean time machine with a 500GB hard drive stuffed up its trunk? "YES, THAT'S PERFECT!" How about $250? "Hell no, I don't love anybody that... / Continue →

    So you're making out all hot and heavy with a lady you easily brought home from the bar when she takes off her shirt to reveal a Poké-Bra. What do you do? Dive in there like Ash and see what kind of monsters she's hiding behind that thing, or run screaming because you've bee... / Continue →

    This is a video from the BBC's Bang Goes the Theory in which the host Jem (not to be confused with his sister, Scout) visits the Solar Furnace Research Facility in Southern France and uses solar energy stolen from this spaz to set (instantaneous) fire to a wood plank, melt stee... / Continue →

    Some idiot moron from Spain is claiming she owns the sun and is trying to toot her own horn about it like she's some kind of genius and I didn't lay claim to the fireball when I was like six. Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in Sep... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what kind of Hogwarts student your other favorite TV/movie characters would have been? Me neither. I was so confused a couple weeks ago when half my friends' Facebook pictures turned into Gryffindore and Ravenclaw emblems. I just assumed they'd all joined gangs o... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the lovechild of a simian and the lesser GW, some kid went and made himself an XBox controller pipe. I assume this image was captured as he snuck out of his basement abode for a hit right before his mommy called him to Thanksgiving dinner so he'd be suff... / Continue →

    If you haven't seen this video already, it consists of a guy named Snubby J (not to be confused with Stumpy P) playing his homemade PVC pipe organ thingy (similar to the ones the Blue Man Group uses) for a college talent show. I can only assume floor-sitter Scowly McAngryface'... / Continue →
