    This is the definitive zombie apocalypse survival shotgun. To the untrained eye, it might just look like a shotgun. To the slightly trained eye it might look like a Mossberg 500 Pump-Action Shotgun. But to somebody with f***in' laser-vision, this is the shit you want in your... / Continue →

    This is a 12-minute video of a guy racing his mom around the Laguna Seca raceway in his 2006 Corvette Z06. It's a good time. Especially if your idea of a good time is elderly women screaming their faces off, which is exactly why I never miss a Tom Jones concert. I HAVE SEEN ... / Continue →

    Excuse me if I'm writing this while I puke in my shoes but I mean, c'mon, a guy can only take so much. Chick looks like she's wearing my shower drain around her neck. The human hair necklace...is made by artist Kerry Howley who wants to "make discarded hair attractive again.... / Continue →

    This is a brief clip from the Fox 5 San Diego morning news (the same studio from this April Fools' prank) of a guy opening the show with one of those water-powered jetpacks. Unfortunately, he opted to not take the training course prior to operation and ends up crashing into th... / Continue →

    Casey Putsch built a Batmobile powered by a turbine engine from a naval helicopter (allegedly the only tubine-powered Batmobile to date so I don't know what this is) because he's a firm believer IN GOING BIG OR NOT GOING AT ALL. Hey, I'm with you bro. *finishing off second 20... / Continue →

    Seriously, just watch it, if only for a couple seconds. This is a video of guitar strings being plucked shot from inside the guitar with an iPhone 4. Apparently the timing of the iPhone's camera shutter makes the strings' oscillations look all CRAXY AS F***. Craxy is the n... / Continue →

    Mike Duke, who might have the simplest name ever, modded his late-model Mercury Cougar (which I used to own back in 2001 before sliding it off an icy road, wrapping it around a couple trees and winding up in the ICU for 11 days) into a Bugatti Veyron. Basically by fabricating ... / Continue →

    This is a public service announcement starring The Big Bang Theory's Penny (Kaley Cuoco) reminding women there are other sexy cosplay options to wear to parties/conventions besides slave Leia. It's not particularly good, but neither was the guy working the drive-thru window at... / Continue →

    Make up your f***ing mind -- is this or is this not the droid you're looking for?! Starwars superfan Len Komanak went and built himself a giant cardboard R2-D2 out of a whole bunch of large appliance boxes (where'd you get those -- I'm always looking for those things!). Hey, ... / Continue →

    Jello wrestling: it's what bros do. Sure I could have gone with two girls Jello wrestling but then 1. I'd get called sexist and 2. your coworkers wouldn't think you were reading a gay fraternity sports site, and what's the fun in that? Now, I assume most of you know this, but... / Continue →

    These are grains of sand magnified 250x. I have no clue if representative of typical grains of sand like you'd find stuck to a dog turd at the beach, or if they had to pick through a bunch on a magic beach to find some really good ones. In reality, most sand probably looks pr... / Continue →

    Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab enabled an artificial intelligence system to read the instruction manual for the simulation game 'Civilization' so that it could play the game better. Aaaaaaaand now it does (with a jump in win-rate from 46%... / Continue →

    This is a massive gallery of geeky swimsuits and dresses from Black Milk (previous collection HERE). If you can look past the "in desperate need of cheeseburgers and asses" models (and it's easy cause they're f***ing rails!), the designs are actually pretty sweet. Swimsuits a... / Continue →

    Niko Alm is an Austrian 'Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster' member who's spent the last three years battling his government for the right to wear a "religious" spaghetti strainer on his head in his driver's license photo. Why you'd do that I have no clue, but now I want o... / Continue →

    Time for my closeup! I swear, actors: so vain. This is a video created by giving a gorilla a video camera in a special Kong-proof box. It's very similar in style to the BBC's Chimpcam series, except instead of chimps it's gorillas. I swear, somebody comes up with one good i... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it (and even if you have seen it that doesn't actually change what it is), this is a video of a father and son locked in an epic toy battle, complete with special effects AND sound effects. It's pretty cute and definitely worth a watch. Now I can't... / Continue →

    I've never seen 'Up'. I heard it was depressing in the beginning and I have a problem watching depressing stuff because I get down easily. Then stay there. Truthfully, I've never been able to pick myself back up after watching Atreyu lose Artax to the Swamp of Sadness in 'Th... / Continue →

    I AM THE GREAT ORK MA, BOW DOWN BEFORE MY SULTRY GAZE. This is a Harry Potter corn maze in York, England (hence the y'ORK MA'ze) made to celebrate the release of the final film in the series. Some people celebrate by dressing up as their favorite character and going to see a ... / Continue →

    I can't think "diorama" without thinking "diarrhea", but that's probably just the 7-11 breakfast burrito talking. *BRAP!* Okay now that definitely was. "What'd it say?" Ha, what'd it say -- you're sick. It said, "I'mma set a new record for the GW Mouth to Ass marathon." B... / Continue →

    Seen here looking way too much like a gaping b-hole to not be made out of a pig's rectum (just like hotdogs!), a robotic mouth (NOT armpit) developed at Kagawa University in (you'll never guess!) Japan belts out a ditty for the camera. It's the latest incarnation of this same ... / Continue →

    According to a couple physicists who should lay off the ganja and drink more beer and buy me a round while they're at it, a space-time invisibility cloak could be developed that would allow a user to hide entire events from the eyes and cameras of onlookers. Haha -- I've batti... / Continue →

    *scratching beak* "F***ing forcefields." This is a picture of some woman's home window after an owl flew into it. Rest easy though, the owl's apparently okay. Read: it wasn't found dead by the water hose. But it was late delivering a letter to a certain lightning-scarred w... / Continue →

    This is a 4-minute video of a massive, multi-room sized Rube Goldberg machine that culminates in the taking of a man's portrait (God, just ask a stranger!). I couldn't really find a screencap that would do the machine justice, so it's best if you just watch the video and see f... / Continue →

    SPOILER: Burnt Hogwarts. Because everyone's beating their wienerly wands into a frenzy about the final Harry Potter film being released this week, here's the Charm City (of 'Ace of Cakes' fame) commissioned Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry cake made for the NYC premi... / Continue →

    Note: Video is NSFW -- I just shot myself in the leg language. Seen here showing everyone online how things are done at the NO.K. Corral, Wyatt Derp blasts himself in the leg dueling a paper target. To his credit though, that target did kill a man earlier the same day, so Doc... / Continue →

    ...was Cuba big into feature-length horror movies PRIOR to the sixties? I probably didn't do the best screen-capping job, but the preview really is worth a watch. 'Juan of the Dead' (actually 'Juan de los Muertos') is a comedic zombie apocalypse movie that takes place in Cuba... / Continue →

    No clue, but it definitely helps me get lost as f*** and have to open my map every ten seconds to make sure I'm going the right way. *ahem* Fallout: New Vegas! According to an iffy study by the Groningen Mental Enhancement Department (WTF?) in the Netherlands, smoking the ma... / Continue →

    This is the (epic?) lightsaber battle between Obi Okeydokey, Qui Jong Ill and Darth Maurader or whatever from 'Star Wars: Episode One' with all the sound effects replaced with a dude (the same one who did 'The Matrix' one) making them with his mouth, aka "an acapella multitrac... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy beating Super Mario Bros. with a total score of 600. Which, from what I gathered by skipping around the 8:30 video, is 100 points for each flag level you HAVE to complete while warp-piping your way to Bowser (five, and with no bonus time left on the cl... / Continue →

    This is a public aquarium made entirely out of ice and frozen fish in (SURPRISE!) Japan. Neat idea, but I can see the exact same thing walking through the frozen food isle of the Korean market down the street. All kinda shit be starin' at ya! The Kori no Suizokukan, or the "... / Continue →

    This is a video of Saruman singing the TROLOLO song (which will now be sung in my cubicle for the rest of the day) from atop Orthanc while an audience of do-gooders watch from below. They...aren't very impressed. Me, yes, but I'm tone-deaf. Also, colorblind. I think I'm gra... / Continue →

    This is a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 covered in a Star Wars themed vinyl wrap for the Goldrush Rally 3 from Denver to Los Angeles. IT IS NON-PERMANENT. So if you want to complain about ruining a lambo you can only complain about ruining one TEMPORARILY. However, it does ha... / Continue →
