    This is a video of guy getting what's being advertised as the first animated tattoo, despite Little Pete from 'The Adventures of Pete and Pete' having one of a chick in a red dress named Petunia that he could make dance almost 20 years ago. Oh right, AND THEN THERE'S THIS. Per... / Continue →

    Bad-Dragon.com sells fake dragon wieners. Dildos, son -- I'm talking dildos. They have models that range from seadragons to faierie dragons to non-dragons like gryphons, werewolves (for you lonely Twilight fans!) and waterhorses. Obviously, they're all incredibly disturbing ... / Continue →

    This is The Dark Side dubstep by The Eclectic Method featuring scenes from the movies. I watched it several times trying to decide whether or not to post it (meaning I probably shouldn't), but it ended up growing on me. Kind of like a wart, but with less constantly hiding my ... / Continue →

    Seen here in an artist's rendition (mine -- I'm an artist) of exactly what it'll look like when while in orbit, the European Space Agency's Gaia Spacecraft will rock a 106-CCD sensor, 1-billion pixel "camera" that's over three feet wide (like my ass!) in order to create a 3-D m... / Continue →

    I knew there was a reason I love those things so much. I could eat a whole jar in a sitting (and have before). This changes nothing for me really. A lot of people I know swear by Vlasics, but those people are idiots (most of the people I know are) and have obviously never ha... / Continue →

    In other depressing eyewear news, this is a series of pixelated sunglasses from Belarussian designer Dzmitry Samal called 5dpi (dots-per-inch for those of you who have no business being on the internet). I'm not sure how I feel about them, but a hipster coworker of mine just p... / Continue →

    Note: Much larger version HERE in case you're looking for an out-of-this-world (but not solar system) wallpaper. This is allegedly a real picture (although I have my doubts -- NASA) of a massive storm on Saturn that has wrapped around the entire planet and caught up with its t... / Continue →

    Because if there's one thing my life's been missing, it's direction people I went to middle school with, bored out of their f***ing minds and deciding to video-chat me to catch up on the past 18 years. Thankfully, Facebook now has a video-calling option. I swear, I am like, f... / Continue →

    This is a Pokemon cake and 151 original character figurines made for someone's special day. And by special day I mean marriage, just so we're not confused (in my mind you were thinking high school graduation). People were literally FIGHTING over getting their favorite pokemon... / Continue →

    Chocolate: it tastes good but makes you fat. I'm actually in the process of weening myself off a four-Snickers-a-day habit but it's not going so hot (read: yesterday I had six and an Almond Joy). Enter the printer that can build things in 3-D chocolate by building them up lay... / Continue →

    This is allegedly 365 applications of makeup applied to a woman's face over a 9-hour period. The result, which looks like a cross between Kim Kardashian and a burn victim (which would be a great combo in real life by the way) are terrifying, probably even more so to young chil... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Ironettes' recent performance at Japan Expo 2011 in Paris, France (you know, the Japan Expo -- in France). For those of who who aren't familiar with the Ironettes (as seen in Iron Man 2), they're just like the high-kicking Rockettes, except dressed as in... / Continue →

    Super Mario enemies: a lot of times you felt bad killing them because half of them were just happy little turtles THAT DIDN'T EVEN ATTACK. Enter artist Mike Puncekar, who shows you what those 8-bit graphics couldn't: the darker side of Mario's enemies. This is obviously a goo... / Continue →

    F***in' water -- how does it work? This is a video of water doing its thing (being wet? I have no idea) at 7,000 frames per second. It...looks drinkable. The water that comes out of the tap in my apartment? Brown. It's so bad it's actually stained the floor of the bathtub.... / Continue →

    A recent study by scientists who don't give a shit about curing cancer has determined that males with right-hand ring and index fingers of a similar length are more likely to have smaller wieners than males with a difference in lengths. And, as is clearly evident from the pict... / Continue →

    The University of Pennsylvania's GRASP Lab, in an attempt to subdue me so I don't bulldoze their building down, has posted a one minute video of their autonomous quadrocopters crashing into each other and all around failing at robotic life. I found it, dare I say, humorous? "... / Continue →

    Note: Uncensored (and squeezable looking!) buttcheeks after the jump. So yeah, Avatar tattoo guy decided to get some Na'vi (NOT navy) blue stripes flaming out from between his buttcheeks, because that's a good look for a crazy person. Personally, I would have opted for a perm... / Continue →
