    Does anybody else think 'areola' when they hear 'aurora'? No -- just me? Must be my medical background. Kidding, total nipple lover. This is a worthwhile two-minute time-lapse of a guy's flight from San Francisco to Paris COMPLETE WITH AURORA BOREALIS. Which, fun fact: isn... / Continue →

    Just the right amount of coverage. The Sleeping Beauty Bra is a $70 bra that's supposed to prevent ladies (and busty men) from waking up with wrinkles between their tits. Thankfully, I don't have a breast wrinkle problem. Balls, absolutely. Which, painful fact: they DO NOT ... / Continue →

    Commenter #1,705 Keith Veilleux and commenter #3,395 dimebag douglas. Congratulations guys, I'll shoot you an email this weekend for your addresses (which I may or may yes use when signing up for grocery store discount cards). Thanks to everyone who entered, I'm sure Tokyofla... / Continue →

    I'm no expert, but that definitely doesn't look like 'HDD Inside'. Some Ruskie, in desperate need for a little extra hard drive space to store all his commie fetish porn, drove all the way to the Russian/Chinese border to pick up a 500GB black-market Samsung. This is what he ... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for the Washington Lottery that asks, "What have you and your friends always wanted to do?" SPOILER: Apparently joust on Segways. F*** I really need to make some new friends. Or any friends for that matter. I had an imaginary one for awhile but he liked... / Continue →

    But can I get one with a lobster print on the front? The SlobStopper is an adult bib designed for in-car use so you don't scald your balls off with hot coffee or stain your dress with milk while eating a bowl of cereal and driving WHICH I'VE SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES. Slobstopper... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger (but still very pixel-y) version HERE. This is a chart of 235 pixelated Star Trek characters by illustrator John Martz. You can get a numbered chart HERE and try to name them all by the 12th, with the two people who can name the most receiving free print... / Continue →

    A suicidal naked man, obviously pissed he had no clean boxers, shot a SWAT robot with an AK-47 after it entered his home to check on him. Well you really can't blame him for that. Authorities said a man with several guns was suicidal and threatening authorities. Instead of ... / Continue →

    Is there any better way to propose than with a Pokeball ring box? That depends on who you ask. If you ask a Pokemon fan, probably not. If you ask my grandpa, he'll probably tell you he can't hear what you're saying and start poking you in the shins with his cane for wearing ... / Continue →

    To verify the ejection system for the F-35 Lightning (first supersonic jet capable of vertical takeoff and landing) is shit-your-flightsuit ready, BAE has been testing the system on a 600MPH rocket sled. What the?! We didn't even have rocket sleds when I was growing up. When ... / Continue →

    A little 75-year old lady brought down the entire internet for millions of users in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan after severing a fiber-optic cable while digging for copper wire to sell as scrap. GOD, GET A JOB GRANDMA! The elderly woman is now facing a prison sentence in ... / Continue →

    This is a demo reel of some of the features included in the new Unreal 3 gaming platform that will be available to developers. It's basically 3:00 of Unreal tooting their own ultra-realistic looking horn. Admittedly, some of the stuff does look pretty unreal. "For the love o... / Continue →

    Unpleated khakis FTW! Seen here looking suspiciously like a vibrator, an employee of Taser International shows off the company's latest creation -- a 50,000-volt taser grenade. Oh, hold on -- I'm being asked to reiterate THAT THIS IS NOT A SEXTOY. Ha! I'll be the judge of t... / Continue →

    I have been itching a lot lately. Seen here looking none too happy about it, a feathered dinosaur RAWRs in annoyance over his lice infestation. You know, it wouldn't kill you to take a mud bath every once in awhile. But it probably would kill you if earth got hit by a giant ... / Continue →

    4.6-billion years in the making (I like to start at the beginning), Geekologie now has Facebook and Twitter buttons on every post so you can share the site's awesomeness while minimizing clicks. "Three clicks and a copy/paste? THAT'S SOME CARPAL TUNNEL KINDA SHIT!" So yeah, ... / Continue →

    Remember that company that was selling perfectly round ice spheres for $8 a pop? Turns out they might have just been cranking them out with this Ice Ball Mold (55mm - 85mm models range from $1,300 - $2,000 -- chintzy marble-sized 30mm mold goes for $200). But now the secret (... / Continue →

    That's right folks, the Commodore 64 is coming back, with updated innards in that classic "are you sure this came from a smoke-free home?" off-white plastic shell. And on the cheap! Think of it as a really cumbersome netbook with no monitor. The new Commodore 64, which will ... / Continue →

    Seen here in an artist's rendition of what it might look like taking off while a golfer simultaneously shoots their way out of a sand trap, the Falcon Heavy (please note: it's never a good idea to include 'heavy', 'cumbersome', 'lumbering', or 'might explode' in the name of a r... / Continue →

    These are three picture tutorials for making your own homemade superhero/villain accessories. This one's Cyclops' laser vision, but there's Magneto's bucket-helmet and Wolverine's claws after the jump. While admittedly impressive, I've always fancied myself more of a Dazzler.... / Continue →

    I'd like to think the 69 in that box was part of the gag too. This is a video of a local Fox news host convincing his cohost (or his host. Or maybe they're both hosts and there is no cohost -- the point is I'm not sexist) that there's a new iPhone/iPad app that allows you to ... / Continue →
  • April 6, 2011
    Seen here looking suspiciously like a whale being eaten by a giant squid, recent research into an Antarctic meteorite discovered in 1969 (beer, sex, sin, wine -- we're the class of '69!) has revealed a new mineral with a unique crystalline structure, wassonite. Great, and righ... / Continue →

    Okay, so I've got two Tokyoflash Kisai Console watches (retail value ~$175) to give away. All you need to do is go to the Tokyoflash website, pick your favorite model, then leave a comment on this post with said model name to be entered (JUST SAYING 'WANT' WILL GET YOU DISQUAL... / Continue →

    Seen here with their human doppelgangers (standing), a group of Geminoid robots telepathically plot the deaths of their caretakers so they can take over their lives and herald the rise of the machines. I don't know about you, but I, for one, do NOT welcome our new robotic over... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile full-res shots HERE for all you junk fetishists. This is the Binary Low Table from BRC Designs. If it looks like a bunch of crappy old computer parts hot-glued to a coffee table, congratulations, your vision's 20/20. If it looks like something you'd actu... / Continue →

    I hate public restrooms. Most guys in stalls don't even bother trying to muffle their farts EVEN WHEN THEY KNOW THEY'RE NOT ALONE. Plus they smell. Plus there's piss all over the floor. Plus dudes get all freaked out if you try to make eye contact and small-talk at a urinal ... / Continue →

    Don't 'moo' at me like you're some sort of classy heifer -- you've got shit on your leg! Because there's less than zero regulations for genetic manipulation in China (make me a superhero already, God), a team of researchers there have spliced human DNA into cow embryos so, whe... / Continue →
  • April 5, 2011
    Note: Full-res version HERE in case you want to try to read cars' license plates (you still can't though is the thing). This is a Hot Wheels ad installation from Bogota, Colombia featuring a fake loopty-loop on an overpass. I'm not sure if it was designed to sell toy cars or ... / Continue →
  • April 5, 2011
    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're convinced if you just zoom in you might spot an alien. This is a shot depicting all 1,235 potential alien planets located by the Kepler space probe to date. The planets are actually just the tiny black dots though, the big balls are th... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO ship in a bottle built by Julia Morley. There's a worthwhile time-lapse video of its construction after the jump, which is pretty impressive. FIRE THE CANNONS! Just kidding, there aren't actually any cannons except in my imagination. Also, buttass-naked merma... / Continue →
  • April 5, 2011
    Note: Picture unrelated but by far one of the least offensive things I saw while searching Google images for something appropriate. I'm f***ing scarred, yo. According to a recent study, the length of a man's taint is directly related to his fertility, with shorter measurement... / Continue →

    I don't typically cover celebrities because that's not my job, but they don't usually wear shit made out of LEGO either. So here's Fergie looking suspiciously like she colored her eyes with Magic Marker at Nickelodeon's 24th Annual Kids' Choice (Pokémon, I Choose You!) Awards... / Continue →

    Here's a couple videos from last weekend's San Francisco WonderCon 2011 showcasing all the cosplayers that attended. The first video is all footage from Friday, the second from Saturday, and the third focuses on a female Green Lantern the cameraman obviously had some sort of u... / Continue →

    Want to make your own Zelda treasure chest complete with 'opening' sound effect? Well now you can, provided you're still in your parents' good graces and one of them agrees to supervise so you don't wind up supergluing your genitals to a kitchen stool again. A list of supplie... / Continue →

    The Povodokus is a conceptual dog leash that makes it look like you're shooting your dog. HAHA -- SO FUNNY. Because there's nothing better than strolling your dog around the neighborhood with something that looks like a gun to get the cops called. "Hello, 911? Remember that... / Continue →
  • April 4, 2011
    This is a sneaky peep of the 1:00 opening credits to the new X-Men anime series. Granted it's no Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opener, but what are you gonna do? SPOILER: Get high and watch DuckTales. Madhouse's X-Men anime finally kicked off in Japan on Friday, making the... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy allegedly beating four Mario games at once (1, 2, 2 Japan aka The Lost Levels and 3) using a single controller input in an 11-minute tool-assisted speed run. I'm not gonna lie, just watching it made my head 'esplode. Ears too. I actually took the tim... / Continue →
  • April 4, 2011
    This is a Cracked cartoon showing a much more realistic version of a Pokemon battle. SPOILER: It's depressing. I had to tell myself not to cry which was all kinds of awkward because everyone at Starbucks started giving me the stink-eye like I was some sort of schizophrenic se... / Continue →
  • April 4, 2011
    You're not fooling anybody! Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to make it your desktop background. In other 'animals that look like things' news, this is a crab casting a shadow that looks uncannily like the caped crusader (Batman, not the kid that runs around your ne... / Continue →
  • April 4, 2011
    Uh, is that Bumblebee hiding in the corner? I put functional in quotations because the boot-jets don't work, it won't stop a single bullet (or rock), and the arc reactor is just a bunch of LEDs. Oh, and the briefcase looks like a homemade bomb. Besides that though, totally l... / Continue →
  • April 4, 2011
    This is an x-ray of a new species of stingray discovered in the Amazon dubbed the 'pancake' stingray (photo explanation after the jump -- SPOILER: It looks like a giant f***ing pancake). I assume the hunt is still on for a waffle stingray, which is good news because they'll pr... / Continue →
  • April 4, 2011
    These are 8-bit pantyhose. Despite breaking out my magnifying glass (this monitor's just a bunch of colored dots!!!!!!11), I can't tell if they're real or not (I think they're black printed on white though). Oooooor they're just Photoshopped. Whichever the case, Mario just p... / Continue →
