    They look f***in' delicious. These freaky-ass 'Transylvanian Naked Neck Chickens' (yes, really) are chickens with a genetic mutation that gives them turkey-like necks. Or did one bang a giraffe? I'm on to you, Old MacFrankenstein! The scientists said the effects of the gene... / Continue →

    This $22 bicycle beer holder comfortably keeps a 6-pack of beer bottles right below your nuts. No word what to do if you're more of a 18-pack a day kinda guy, but my guess is get a basket. Alternatively, buy six-packs of cans, which come with their own plastic bike-mounts. O... / Continue →

    This is a homemade lamp designed by Anonymity Blaze by replacing an old floor lamp's panels with ones that've been stenciled/sketched with a bunch of pictures of geeky-ass thangs. COULD'VE USED A DINO I'M JUST SAYIN'. So, today's crafty post. I had this floor lamp that I lo... / Continue →

    This is a line of $32 Pac-Man dresses from 80'sTees. Why they didn't bother making a Ms. Pac-Man version is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with BLATANT SEXISM. Proud Don Draper would be proud. Also, what's up with the model? I feel like ol' Demoneyes McSoul... / Continue →

    Space: I've lived there. It was pretty cool. Never been to Saturn though, although I did regretfully visit Uranus once. Fine, TWICE. Just kidding -- your butt's mad nasty! This is a video fly-by of Saturn created from photos taken by the Cassini space probe. I watched it ... / Continue →

    Note: Viagra'd version HERE. This is a map of the world according to dangle-down dimensions. There's actually an interactive version HERE, where if you click around it'll give you a country's actual average in both centimeters and inches despite you typically measuring in mil... / Continue →

    This is a Freddie Wong video of what the first level of Super Mario Bros. looks like to Mario. AKA FRIST PERSON (not changing it). I was a little disappointed Mario didn't opt to go down a pipe when he had the chance (stop cutting corners!) because I've always been curious ab... / Continue →

    There's a full moon Saturday and it's gonna appear the largest it has in almost 20 years, and won't happen again until 2029. So yeah, probably a good idea to give it a peep just in case shit hits the fan in the meantime (which it WILL). Also, be sure to tell all your friends ... / Continue →

    The Ab-hancer is an (fl)ab-enhancing product from the same a-holes who brought us the Ass-istant and Tricep-tional fat-shapers (I'm grasping at straws here folks. Literally -- I'm drunk and there's like five of them in this giant green cocktail). I'm not even sure this is a r... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like some sort of Pagan sun talisman, a shock-wave generator may prove to be the future of engines, pushing traditional internal-combustion joints to the wayside. Ooooooor being all bullshit. Oooooor having its patent rights bought up by engine ... / Continue →

    In other facts & figures news, Star Trek fanpage Subspace Comminque recently conducted a survey of 5,041 Trek-lovers to determine just now nuts they are about Tribble-based foreplay or whatever else ungodly things they're into. What do you mean you're setting your phaser to 'm... / Continue →

    A recent study conducted by Birmingham Science City has revealed that an alarming number of British folks believe science-fiction technologies actually exist today. The highlights (or lowlights depending on how you feel about the future of society): • More than a fifth of a... / Continue →

    "Dammit, GW, spiders have eight legs." YOU SHUT UP. This is SAMSA II, a hexapod robot built by Uruguayan Geekologie Reader pabloxid. Why he decided to send me a video of the thing I have no idea, but I assume it has something to do with luring me to Uruguay to rough him up a... / Continue →

    Fat sound in a little suit. The Blackbird Rider (who the hell rides Blackbirds -- what are you, a forest nymph?!) is a 3-pound acoustic travel (3/4 size) guitar made entirely out of carbon fiber (NOT Millennium Falcon) and designed for 1. super portability and 2. as much sound... / Continue →

    Note: Video possibly NSFW due to some pirate-talk. Keep the speakers on low and you should be gravy. Me? I'm a country biscuit. I won't tell you what sequel because that would ruin the surprise, but I f***ing love ruining surprising so I'll just tell you: 'Transformers'. J... / Continue →

    I learned they make it harder for me to sleep at night. Note: Slightly larger version HERE but you still won't be able to read the ultra-fine print. This is an infographic summarizing the weaponry used in some of the most well-known zombie movies of the past few decades. Bas... / Continue →

    Pepsi, in a race to beat Coke in the battle of earth-friendlier, which, while certainly respectable, sounds like the most boring fight ever, has announced they've found a way to produce plastic-like bottles entirely out of vegetable matter (NOT squirrels). But can you eat them... / Continue →

    Note: This is only a wee-bit of it, you've got to hit the jump to see the whole thing. You probably can't tell just by reading this, but I actually duct-taped a baseball bat sticking out from the kitchen table at crotch-level and ran into it headlong at full speed for includ... / Continue →

    They really tie the room together. Literally! Because you all felt obligated to trash this guy's Portal mirror despite your own, non-existent Portal mirrors being infinitely shittier, a couple decided to improve the design to include some colored rope-lighting. These are the... / Continue →

    I meant to post this earlier this week but it got buried in my inbox under a plethora of 'add 6-inches to your d*ck' spam (which, for the record, yes, would make me all of 8-inches). Ha, who knew you're not supposed to use your primary email when signing up for shifty websites. ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a cadaver with candy corns for teeth and M.U.S.C.L.E. Men in its weave, some dude decided to get a Hello Kitty tattoo smack-dab in the middle of his forehead. Why? Your guess is as good as mine, but I'm leaning towards 'why not?', which is ... / Continue →

    This is a College Humor original about a guy who hacked his XBox Kinect to be self aware. It's every bit as frightening as you might expect and I believe offers a real glimpse of the future. Ooooooor that movie 'Eagle Eye' with Shay LeBouff (not changing it), which I've seen ... / Continue →

    There are boots that look like hooves for all you Mr. Tumnus cosplayers out there. Which, I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm one of. What about you guys, let's get a show of hands. QUICK -- TRANQ-DART THESE FREAKS! A carbon-fibre hoof and up to 5,000 individual horse hairs make ... / Continue →

    Worst. lunch. ever. The LunchCommunicator is a lunchbox with an integrated video camera that automatically starts recording to capture both your parent making your lunch (so you know they're not trying to poison you), as well as you eating it (so they know you ate the poison... / Continue →

    OMG SOMEBODY GET THAT ROBOT A BEER BEFORE HE KILLS US ALL. I had to look up what a toque was because I thought it was when you smoke the marijuanas but that made zero sense in this context. Nope, turns out it's a brimless hat most commonly known for being the tall white ones ... / Continue →
  • March 15, 2011
    This is 'Mario', a recent movie short by Joe Nicolosi shown at SXSW that reimagines Mario in real life (specifically, as an indie-movie). Granted that's not the most original concept, but the execution is top-notch (not to confused with side-notch, which is when you poke an ex... / Continue →

    Do you see what happens, Lambi?...THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, LAMBI! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU F*** A STRANGER IN THE ASS! So apparently March 15, besides being Space-Bat Day, is also World Consumer Rights Day. News to me. Not exciting news, mind you. On 15 March 1963, Presid... / Continue →

    Two years ago today -- on Sunday, March 15, 2009, a free-tailed bat with a broken wing clung to the Space Shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank before liftoff. Unbeknownst to him, he was about to be granted one last chance at flight. And fly he did -- with over 37-million h... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy sealing a Kahlua bottle (The Dude -- is that you?!), putting it in a microwave, CLAMPING THE DOOR OF THE MICROWAVE SHUT SO IT DOESN'T BLOW OFF SO EASY, and setting the microwave's timer to 'total f***ing destruction'. Admittedly, it did a lot more dama... / Continue →

    Note: Full picture after the jump, which, while everything IS covered, may be considered NSFW depending on how your employer feels about fine art. YOU CAN'T FIRE ME FOR BEING CULTURED. There's magical, and then there's naked lady unicorn mask on the beach magical. Or is tha... / Continue →

    This is a Star Wars themed home theater in a 10,000 square foot mansion in Honolulu. It's not to be confused with THIS Star Wars themed home theater that looks like two buttholes sewn together in comparison. It does look similar in quality to THIS Star Trek home theater thoug... / Continue →

    I've got that same hat! This is a beer saddle for your dog. It holds four cans or bottles. I don't know about you, but I could really go for a warm beer covered in dog hair right now. The saddle fits most larger breeds (and crush most smaller breeds) and is currently on cle... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of steampunk insects made out of old ammunition and pocket-watch parts by Tom Hardwidge. As you can see, they're pretty good looking. Unless you hate steampunk stuff, in which case they're probably pretty bad looking. Whatever side of the fence you yell ove... / Continue →

    Because today is 3/14 and those are the first three digits of pi, (followed by 32.33 -- repeating of course. jk jk) it's Pi Day and everyone gathers in the streets to sing traditional Irish songs and eat pickled cabbage or whatever. No? Different holiday? Oh. Well I'm not ... / Continue →

    Angry vaj to the face! This is two-hour Youtube video called 'Pixelated Blood' that features over 500 finishing-moves from some of the crappiest fighting games to ever exist. Except Primal Rage, Primal Rage was the shit. Plus I'm filled with it. *headbutts barista into capp... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like Thumper (your mom loved a rabbit!), a trio of Chihuahuas were born in Massachusetts with only their back legs. It's cool though because they don't know they're supposed to have front ones and are convinced all the other dogs with them are fr... / Continue →

    Katamari Damacy, the game where you roll over thing to collect them and grow bigger and bigger can now be played on any website, thanks to a clever bit of code. Contra? Not yet, BUT I'M WORKING ON IT. How does it work? Short version: css transforms (for things stuck to the... / Continue →

    You see that picture? That's a needle at the bottom. I know, I thought it was a knight's jousting lance at first too and was all, "PFFT, THAT CAMERA AIN'T SO SMALL!" But no, it's a needle. Which you and I both know is like double the circumference of your protractor. What?... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy showing off the unorthodox wiring job for a garage door opener at a house for sale in Everett, Washington. I don't want to ruin it for you, but it doesn't look up to code. Like, anybody's definition of code. This wouldn't even fly in my neighborhood ... / Continue →

    Picture moderately related. Ross Hurst, 28, of Scottsdale, Pennsylvania was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after leaving his 4-year old son at home alone sleeping while he went out to play ninja by himself at 1:30 in the morning. Dammit Ross, you know you sho... / Continue →

    Note: Low-res shots are after the jump but there's some much more worthwhile high-res shots HERE, HERE and HERE in cause you want to use your Bat-Goggles to scan the scene for semen stains. This is the Eden Hotel's Batman suite in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. It costs $50 per 3-ho... / Continue →

    This is a video "sneak peek" of the new Nickelodeon TMNT cartoon. I put sneak peek in quotations because 1. it's pretty shitty and 2. I didn't want you to think it was a sneak pee, which is what I do in the alleyway between bars. Also, sometimes in my sleep which is actually ... / Continue →
