    The universe: you thought it ended with a wall that just went on forever, right? Me too. But apparently that's not the case. Apparently it's like a bubble with-- "wait, like a bubble in my bong?" *rolling eyes* Sure, it's like a bubble in your bong. But, instead of being ... / Continue →

    56-year old British comedic actor Rowan Atkinson, best known for playing the lovable passive-aggressive goofus (like me!) 'Mr. Bean', recently crashed his McLaren F1 (1 of 64 made -- AND THE SECOND TIME HE'S DONE IT) in Cambridge, England and is currently recovering from a mino... / Continue →

    Need a shaving razor that can fit in your wallet? No, you don't. Not unless you want to threaten to cut your server when they bring the bill with the hopes of scoring a free sundae. *eyes belly shaking head* The blades come off and are stowed on the backside of the mirror ... / Continue →

    This is a video from some POS 'reality' wedding show that I'll vehemently deny l'd ever watch (despite the fact that like 20% of my DVR is Bridezillas I can't bring myself to delete because I might want to watch them again), featuring a creepy ring-bearing Gollum. Some show ba... / Continue →

    You know what the problem with coffee is? You can't inject it. Also, apparently some people complain about not being able to smell their coffee while they're drinking it with a lid, denying them part of the sensory sensation. You know, because taste and smell are connected (... / Continue →

    This is a stop-motion animation of a friendly battle between Ryu and Ken complete with special AND sound effects. What a minute -- friendly battle? There's no such thing as a friendly battle! IT IS IS KILL OR BE KILLED. Or, okay, run and hide, but that's generally frowned u... / Continue →

    Note: Skip to 1:15 unless you've never seen regular-ass looking clouds before. Although, truthfully, I'm pretty sure I did see a pig and Daffy Duck at the very beginning. This is a video of clouds passing by before a storm in New Brunswick, Canada that somebody decided to fil... / Continue →

    According to some scientists, this is photographic evidence of flowing wa-wa on Mars. How they can assume it's water and not acidic martian urine is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do WITH NOT ADHERING TO THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD. Great, you're gonna make us look li... / Continue →

    Run For Your Lives is a 5K zombie obstacle course starting in Baltimore this fall. They plan on rolling more out across the country if it's successful. If it's unsuccessful, they will probably plan on not renewing the runforyourlives.com domain name and pretending nothing nev... / Continue →

    This is a steampunk Samus Aran arm cannon made by DeviantARTist Skinz-N-Hydes (NOT Skinz-N-Shirtz, which is how you play kickball). Whether you're into steampunk stuff or not, you've got to admit it would suck to sit on bare-assed. "No it wouldn't." Haha, I know. Hit the ... / Continue →

    Because LEGO figures like to go on space adventures too, NASA and LEGO have teamed up to send this trio of minifigs to Jupiter aboard the Juno spacecraft, which launches tomorrow. Also aboard the Juno spacecraft: one VERY special stowaway. Get it? I'm a sped and I want off t... / Continue →

    There are iPhone cases, and then there are iPhone cases. Then, there are these fake hand iPhone cases from Strapya World. They make it look like you're holding a severed hand when talking on the phone. But that's not even the best part -- the best part is the price! Only $64... / Continue →

    Were the cigarettes and fruit punch part of the experiment? 31-year old Sweden native Richard Handl (NOT Dick Grip) was arrested recently after trying to set up a nuclear reactor in his (clearly well-equipped) kitchen lab. Did you hear that, meth? There's a new illegal lab i... / Continue →

    Two moons, or one moon and a Deathstar? Go ahead and get all the "that's no moon" out of your systems now. "That's no moon." Are we good? Awesome. According to a new theory proposed by scientists, prior to 4.4 billion years ago, earth may have had two moons. Hey, you know... / Continue →

    Sweet staff bro. Seen here moments before raiding the novelty t-shirt kiosk behind them, Lord N-64 of Cartridge and the Duke of Super Nintendonia pose for a photo op. Pretty clever, guys. Unfortunately, nowhere near as clever as my Baron von Wii armor. *struttin' that ass i... / Continue →

    Meet Miles Morales, the new Ultimate Spiderman after Peter Packer (not changing it) met his demise at the hands of Green Goblin back in June (really -- the f***ing goblin got you?!). Miles is a nerdy highschooler of black and Latino descent and NOT dino and dragon descent like... / Continue →

    Because of all the vampire shit going around, blood (NOT SNOT) is like sooooooo in right now. And what better way to cash in on the venous craze than a line of blood-inspired fingernail polishes? "I can think of a lot of things." Oh, right, RON POPEIL, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! ... / Continue →

    This is an old SEGA Out-Run arcade game that's been mounted to a golf cart and programmed with custom software that, using two hood-mounted webcams, turns real-world roads and obstacles into in-game roads and obstacles. Better buckle up! Jk jk, it's a golf cart -- what's the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Vilnius (the capital of Lithuania) mayor Arturas Zuokas crushing an illegally parked Mercedes in a tank. Except that's not really a tank because tanks have treads (but not all things with treads are tanks!). That right there is what we call an urban assaul... / Continue →
  • August 3, 2011
    Remember Monday's 'Internet Explorer Users are Dumb-Dumbs' study? Well, unshockingly to anybody who's familiar with the internet, is was faked. Also, 2-Pac's death. Hey, it's cool, Pac -- I ain't mad at cha. A number of media organisations, including the BBC, reported on th... / Continue →

    This is a custom-painted Angry Birds bra from Etsy seller SceeneSchoes. She'll paint you one in sizes 34A to 38DD for $35, although you and I both know 34A's should really get a discount. That's price-gouging! You should be price-groping. Get it? Because that's what you do... / Continue →

    This is a Nokia viral ad for their N8 phone featuring the world's largest stop-motion animation, which was made on a beach using a crane (that's a real boat in the picture). It's a follow-up to their world's smallest stop-motion animation and NOT a follow up to the job intervi... / Continue →

    Batman: Arkham City -- everyone's got a bat-boner about it. And rightfully so, the first game was the shit minus that 'combat challenges' part which made me ragequit and scream at my television for like a week straight. And here are all the alternative Batman costumes, each o... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Daniel Knox-Hewson, 23, and his broski Kelvin Borbidge, 22, recently changed their names. But not to Daggerteeth Dragonslayer and Gryphondick Castlecrasher like normal people, oh no, this superduo went all out. Daniel is now Emperor Spiderman Gandalf Wolveri... / Continue →

    This is small chart of the various ailments the Winnie the Pooh characters suffer from and the prescriptions they're on. As you can see, they're pretty accurate. Me? I'm sort of a Pooh-Piglet-Eeyore-Tigger combo, which is why I take the weed. "Dammit GW, you sound like ston... / Continue →

    Sweet rocks bro. This is an 8-minute video of Euclideon CEO Bruce Robert Dell (NOT Bruce Wayne Acer) explaining his company's 'Unlimited Detail Real-Time Rendering Technology', that's allegedly 100,000x more detailed than current polygon-based computer graphics. According to ... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole graphic, it's not even a fraction of it. Well, technically it is a fraction of it, but only like 18% (ignoring scaling). I'm not a dork, you're a dork. Click HERE for the whole damn thing. Looking: it's the best way to learn something. There's no... / Continue →

    Because all the ASPCA needs is an influx of boring old dogs that can't glow in the dark, South Korean scientists have successfully bred a beagle that glows under UV light. A hellhound, if you will. A glow-in-the-dark beagle if you won't. Also, this isn't really new news, bec... / Continue →

    This is a couple shots of Geekologie Reader El Gostro's homemade Pokéball themed herb grinder. It's for cooking. Jk jk, it's for grinding marijuana. But probably not the good stuff because then you'd want one with a keif screen to prevent all those trichromes from going to ... / Continue →

    This is a Wiimote-controlled fire-breathing robot pony being put through its paces (turning head, breathing fire) at the recent Detroit Maker's Faire by its two mohawk'd creators. The pink one clearly stealing the other's thunder aside, there is absolutely no reason why anybod... / Continue →

    Connect the dots -- la la la la! Connect the dots: like word searches and mazes, they've always been difficult for me (who the f*** is supposed to remember what comes after 59 anyway? That's why God invented calculators!). So you can imagine my sense of unease when I saw thi... / Continue →

    These are actual photographs of water droplets falling in front of a print of MC Escher's iconic 'Relativity'. There's a shot of the reddit photographer Smsilton's setup after the jump if you want to see how it was made, which, amazingly, didn't involve trapping a wizard in an... / Continue →

    $9 Soylent Green crackers: not made with people, but with a made with people pricetag. That's a little questionable. But they are packed with spinach and "high energy plankton", so you can at least get your Popeye on knowing you're doing The Krusty Krab a service. Soylent Gr... / Continue →

    Diablo II, a game best known for being "too satanic for my impressionable young mind" to be allowed to play EVEN THOUGH I WAS IN COLLEGE, came out in 2000. And now, *counting on fingers* 11 years later, some details have been released on the followup, cleverly titled Diablo II... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a series of equations that, when entered into a graphing program, form the Bat-symbol. I have no clue if it's accurate or not since I spent the entirety of high school math classes playing Drug Dealer on a TI-83, but I'll take their word for it. Plus I remem... / Continue →

    Needs more loogie moat. Castles: they're cool and I want to live in one. Hair castles: not cool, I don't want to live in one, and I think I just spit up a little. But did that stop Agustina Woodgate from creating this 4-foot, 3,000-brick hair castle? Unfortunately, no. *tw... / Continue →

    You know what sucks about canoeing? Trying to get in one and tipping over. Well, that, and you have to paddle, which takes work. Besides that it's okay I guess but I'd still prefer a motorboat any day. *mashing tits together* Well? I SAID GET YOUR FACE IN HERE! The Adhoc... / Continue →

    I bet it's a portal to Atlantis! Is this the sonar image of a crasehd 60-foot UFO, 285-feet deep at the bottom of the Botnia Gulf? HELL NO IT'S NOT, DUMMY. And take that foil hat off, you look ridiculous. Swedish sea treasure hunters have found something extraordinary: A ... / Continue →

    Foxconn, the electronics manufacturer best known for making Apple's iPhones and iPads (but who also manufactures electronics for Acer, Amazon, Asus, Intel, Cisco, HP, Dell, Nintendo, Nokia, Microsoft and Sony), plans to "hire" over a million robots in the next three years to re... / Continue →

    See what I did there with the whole 'out of this world' thing? Well it's a lie, the shoes are actually here on earth. I just did that for dramatic effect. Also, that little flourish with my cape. Yes, I wear a cape now. These are custom Starcraft sneakers made by footwear ... / Continue →

    I still use AOL. Internet Explorer users: apparently they're not as smart as Firefox users. And Opera users, well, none of you are Opera users. Opera singers either. Except, okay, maybe the fat woman in the back with the viking helmet. AptiQuant, a "psychometric consulting... / Continue →
