    OMGWTF4THOFJULYBBQ! These are a couple videos to get your Canada Day/4th of July holiday weekend kicked off right. The first couple are slow-motion videos of fireworks going off shot with a Phantom at 2,000 frames-per-second. The last one is a guy shooting off fireworks that... / Continue →

    Um, all soda cans are spray cans if you shake them first. Because tilting a can back/not poking your eyes out with a straw takes skill and dexterity that today's youth are lacking, soda is now available in spray-cans. Think spray-cheese, but then think soda. Then think both ... / Continue →

    Hey -- this rainbow tastes like pet fur and dust bunnies! What happens when you let seven Roombas (each with a different colored LED strapped to its head) loose in a room for a late-night cleaning sesh? This. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY. The creators, IBR Algorithm Group, e... / Continue →

    Remember last week's Dark Tower/Eye of Sauron LEGO build? Well it turns out it traveled with friends to the 2011 Brickcon. These are them, starting with an absolutely massive (like me) Minas Tirith. I posted a couple more pictures after the jump, but you'll have to check out... / Continue →

    Pissed Japan stole back the honor of housing the world's fastest supercomputer, China answered back this Thursday (apples to oranges style) by opening the world's longest sea-bridge, at a staggering 26.4 miles. That...sounds like a terrible f***ing place to run out of gas. Th... / Continue →

    Seen here doing a rad-to-the-power-of-sick gutter stomp or some shit, a kid rides a BMX bike while attached to a rope swing. And this is an hour of that, cut down to 5:30, because, let's not kid ourselves, a whole hour would almost be too good to be true. Admittedly, BMX bike... / Continue →

    Seen here beckoning your wiener to an untimely dismemberment, robotic dental patient Showa Hanako 2 (Showa Hanako 1 here) opens wide for the camera. Now quick -- toss a stick of dynamite in there and duck behind the x-ray shield! ...this humanoid was originally developed last... / Continue →

    Seen here serenading gravel, a water-boatman celebrates being the world's loudest animal (NOT largest testicled) in relation to body size. How do they do it? The same way you would if you could -- strumming their wieners. *performs Dueling Banjos with a bro* Scientists from... / Continue →

    Note: Uncensored pictures after the jump cannot be unseen. I wasn't going to post this because 1. I eat a lot of sushi and 2. it's f***ing disgusting and is gonna give me nightmares FO SHO, but I'm getting the tip so much I figured I might as well. Standards: mine are incredi... / Continue →

    This is The Matrix 'lobby scene' with the music and sound effects replaced with those made by some guy's mouth and a multi-track recording. It's...something. Something that made me make a strange face while I was watching it. Get it?! I was air-fellating, it was weird! Hit... / Continue →

    Presumably using GPS location data, Augmented Reality Cinema is an upcoming smartphone app that allows a user to watch the scenes from a movie that were shot at their current location. And, God willing, get hit by a bus in the process. Because if there's one thing the world n... / Continue →

    Hammacher Schlemmer, purveyors of the finest everything you don't need, are selling a 20-foot animatronic Triceratops because, okay, I do actually f***ing need that. "RAWR!" *nipples harden into thumbtacks* Featured at The Field Museum of Natural History, this is the motion-... / Continue →

    You know what the problem with a lot of movies coming out is? THEY BLOW. They were poorly written, grossly over-marketed, and suck nards. Not because they aren't watched in seats that move. But has that stopped D-Box (D-Bag's cardboard older brother) from developing 'kineti... / Continue →

    There are special effects, and then there are special effects by visual effects artist Martin Gamal. His special effects are so special their mom makes them wear a bike helmet at all times. "Jesus, even in the bathtub?!" Ha -- especially in the bathtub. Hit the jump for 12... / Continue →

    This is an informational graphic based on the faults of the zombie brain and how to exploit them to survive the inevitable apocalypse. Apparently there's actual science behind it but that's debatable seeing how scientists don't even have a zombie's brain to study. Walt Disney... / Continue →

    So apparently somebody started a rumor that the Navy SEALs that stormed Osama Bin Laden's compound were rocking night-vision contact lenses. Personally, I don't believe it. And not just because I know who started the rumor, but I do and he's a dirty liar PLUS I'VE SEEN HIM EA... / Continue →

    Note: Search 'avatar tattoo' in the sidebar to see the progression. The last time we checked in with Iggy the Avatar superfan he was at tattoo # 8, but that was way back in 2010. Since then he's gotten #'s 9 and 10 (the faces flanking his shank-zones), planned # 11 (a giant f... / Continue →

    After recently being named Europe's least green auto manufacturer (despite their new autopilot feature) and opposing new CO2 emission cuts, Volkswagen recently got their lil' Vader Superbowl commercial spoofed by Greenpeace in an effort to bring the company's Mother Nature hati... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure I knew cymbals actually had some motion to them when struck, but nothing like this. This is like...the motion of the ocean. My stomach wouldn't even move that much if you punched me as hard as you could. Yes, yes it would. No lie: I got into a fight in eight... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the cross between an alien vagina and my monitor about to be covered in pre-chewed breakfast burrito, the robotic armpit designed by Kevin Grennan (who is clearly a sicko to the nth degree) shows off its first pubes. Why make a robotic armpit? GOOD F***... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like something I'd kill in a video game, a woman displays the DareDroid 2.0, an interactive dress that rewards 'Truth or Dare' participants with cocktails for "legitimate" answers and poison for "illegitimate" ones. Fine, I was lying about the poison thing. ... / Continue →

    This is a Coke billboard in the Philippines touting the company's greenliness. How earth-friendly is Coke besides the billboard? I have no clue. Probably not very. Whenever I have to guess about something like this I always err on the side of "companies really don't give a ... / Continue →

    This is a battle between a sulfuric-acid based drain cleanser and a wet sponge. SPOILER: The sponge loses (although technically the acid is actually reacting with the water). I know you might be a fan of rooting for the underdog, but in this case the underdog gets its ass bur... / Continue →

    Would you drop $50 a month to see as many movies in theaters as you wanted? MoviePass is hoping you will! Me? I don't like going to the movies. Something about sitting in the dark with a bunch of strangers makes me uneasy. I'm always afraid the person behind me is gonna st... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what an old 56k modem sounds like slowed down 700%? Jesus, you really need to stop wondering about such weird shit, you're scaring me. But, because curiosity killed the cat and I'm hoping it'll do the same to you, here it is anyway. It sounds like...the aliens ar... / Continue →

    This is a series of famous cameos carved from the cream in Oreos by artist Judith G. Klauser. Sure some might argue they're a waste of perfectly good Oreos, but I would eat them anyway. And that includes off the floor. "Dammit GW, you're nasty." I EAT MY GIRLFRIEND'S HAIR O... / Continue →

    The manufacturers of cable boxes/DVR's and cable companies hate the environment so much they don't care how much electricity their shittily designed garbage boxes waste. Or, let's be honest, how well they work. You know how many times I've missed Gossip Girl because their stu... / Continue →

    Because this is what happens. Plus you ruin a perfectly good backup condom. Or, in your case, balloon animal. "Whatever bro, I used to date a chick and one time we were getting so hot and heavy at Makeout Point we ended up using a Doritos bag." That...is not something I'd b... / Continue →

    The Sense-Roid is a mannequin fitted with sensors connected to a tactile feedback vest worn by a user. That way when you dry-hump the thing you receive the same sensations it does. Creepy as shit! The system is composed of a lay figure with tactile sensors to detect the user... / Continue →

    Ever wish you could move your fingers involuntarily? Hell no, that's how people wind up stabbing themselves (alternatively, running with scissors -- it's a no-no, kids). But did that stop researchers at the University of Tokyo from packing the technology into a wristband? It... / Continue →

    Note: Picture only moderately related -- my patented optical invisibility cloak. Researchers at Duke University have developed an acoustic 'invisibility' cloak that can effectively hide an object from sound-based detection systems. The cloak holds promise for the future of s... / Continue →

    This is a short 30-second commercial for Hardees/Carl's Jr. explaining why robots have no place in food production. And if you think it doesn't somehow involve laser-shooting eyeballs, you're wrong. Now I haven't been to Hardees in a long time but I'm about to run out right n... / Continue →

    Minecraft player Mike520 (who's an hour late to the stoner party) has gone and created a 10+ hour playable Zelda adventure in the world of Minecraft. It's called Zelda Adventure and features 8 dungeons, 20 different functional weapons, cinematic cutscenes, shops, collectables,... / Continue →

    Kidding -- she's clearly adulterated. Ah yes, the ol' Myspace mirror shot. I've taken those before. SHIRTLESS. Oh I'm sorry -- am I making you too wet? "Only with vomit." Mmmmmm, rub it into your beard. This is crusty skankasaurus taking a Myspace mirror shot WITH AN ... / Continue →

    This is a giant-ass Millennium Falcon beanbag chairbed. I would sleep on it. But I'd also eat on it, because I'm a disgusting fatbody. True story: when I was doing my quarterly bed laundry this weekend I found a turkey drumstick, half a piece of pizza (sans crust), two Fruit... / Continue →

    This is a little chart of 19 famous hands from sci-fi franchises. Unfortunately, it was only available in t-shirt form for one day last Friday by shirt-a-day purveyor RipT (seriously T -- we miss you, bro). Can you name them all? I named eleven. Granted I named them things ... / Continue →

    Seen here reminding us why it's always a good idea to wear like six condoms, a violent child rages out and threatens to stab his own knee after playing violent video games. You know, or maybe he's posing because somebody told him to. Whatever the case, his face is pissing me ... / Continue →

    This is a Mystery Science Theater 3,000 headboard. Or, more specifically, a piece of particle board that's been cut to look like the back of Mike, Crow and Tom Servo's heads, then spraypainted black and bolted to a bed. Good lookin'. The only problem is this: why are they fac... / Continue →

    Cars 2 just came out this weekend and it was unsurprisingly number one at the box office. Number two at the box office? Never -- I don't trust public restrooms! Butt worms aside, this is series of other famous cars as Cars cars. Obviously (unless you've never seen the movie... / Continue →

    Do or do not, there is no dry humping. You wanna know how to make nipples not look so good? Let 'em sit out in the sun until they dry up like craisins Add Yoda titty-tassels. I jest, all nips are fine in my book provided they're on a lady and there's less than three of th... / Continue →

    Seen here WITH HIS SPINE ON THE WRONG F***ING SIDE OF HIS BODY, a 31-year old man (if you can call him that) was recently spied by police dangling from a 30-ft rooftop playing Batman. Theeeeeeen promptly arrested. No word if Robin came up with bail. [Batman] was taken into c... / Continue →

    This is a song/music video created by editing sounds and scenes from Ocarina of Time into a seizurey can-can. It...made my eyes and ears hurt. But in a good way like when a firework explodes in your face. Hit the jump and prepare to be WTF'd. ... / Continue →

    But where's Robin gonna sit? "ON MY FACE!" You're nasty, Bat! Seen here with so much future-tech nailed on it's hard to believe it's not a prop from The Dark Knight Rises, 74-year old great grampa Brian Vannlooks (yeah -- looks ridiculous driving that thing!) shows off his h... / Continue →
