    So this is a sneak peak of the wooden star of Gris Grimly and Mark Gustafson's future stop-motion release of Pinocchio (produced by The Jim Henson Company and Guillermo Del Toro). Not gonna lie, he looks scary as shit. I'm 29 and I'd probably cry in the theater if I saw that ... / Continue →

    Because there aren't enough trolls on the internet already, some of the dumber Facebook users are actually forced to troll themselves from time to time (read: all the time, always). Thankfully, for those of us that aren't ashamed to laugh at humanity's spiraling downfall, 'Lit... / Continue →

    Because there's no greater joy in life than the smile of a child someone else's misfortune, this is a video of a guy building a 13,000 piece domino pyramid, and having it collapse on him as it nears completion. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!! It's the simple things, you know? This would h... / Continue →

    This is a Volkswagen Golf print ad that appeared in South African copies of Auto Trader magazine that's actually edible. It was accompanied by the line 'Eat the Road. Seriously, Eat It' and was made from "glutinous rice flour, water, salt, propylene glycol, FD&C colour, glyce... / Continue →

    That's right -- 12.5 million. Or just one sent to the right guy *wink*. But now researchers are convinced there's a way to drastically reduce (NOT add 4+ inches to) the amount of spam by convincing a few key banks to sever business ties with known spam-a-lama-ding-dongs. A n... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy proposing to his girlfriend in World of Warcraft, but not before pretending he's about to break up with her. It's really like a fairy tale if you think about it. Don Juan Dungeonraider here clearly has a way with the women. I wonder if he teaches cla... / Continue →

    The Big Bad Wolf laughs at your plastic walls! I know I said LEGO in the headline, but they're actually DUPLO (LEGO's harder to swallow chubby lil sister). I only name-dropped LEGO because I knew it would draw you into this riveting article. Pretty titillating so far, amirit... / Continue →

    This Japanese Emergency toilet may look like a man squatting in a trash bag in front of other people, but that's just because that's exactly what's happening. But -- BUT -- inside that privacy bag (which should also come with a masquerade mask IMHO) is another, smaller bag con... / Continue →

    So apparently Chinese prisoners are being used by prison bosses and guards as free labor to mine the shit out of World of Warcraft gold and other virtual commodities and aren't even allowed to level up their characters. Now that's harsh. "Prison bosses made more money forci... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy recreating all the sounds from three rounds of Street Fighter II by mouth and making some of the most ridiculous faces I've ever seen in six of my lives (I'm a cat). Unfortunately, it's all *meow* Ken vs. Blanka, so if you were hoping to hear any ot... / Continue →

    Two researchers are developing an algorithm designed specifically to 'de-pixelize' 8-bit (and 16-bit) video game graphics in real-time into smoother, more flowing ones. This. changes. everything. No, no it doesn't -- but it does change the amount of time I'll spend playing ... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile higher-res version HERE because justice is a dish best served...larger? *pounding cheeseburgers* This is a scene from Pac-Man recreated with lights and lasers and an open camera shutter by photographer Michael Bosanko. Pretty cute, right? Pac-Man is all, "I'... / Continue →

    If there's one thing that feels good it's sleeping on the man's dime and not getting fired for it. And while some lock their office doors and play audio of themselves on the phone or opt to sleep in the trunk of their car, I'm more of a traditionalist: passed out on the handic... / Continue →

    The FPSRussia guy is back, this time shooting a rooty tooty fresh'n fruity fully automatic 40mm machine gun. On a 1-to-10 scale of pews, this thing is like a 14. Which, not to brag or anything, is the same age I saw my first tit. Sure it was scrambled on Cinemax and I'm pret... / Continue →
