    And the dentist always thought I was crazy for yanking the lead vest off at the last second before an x-ray. I'll show him -- with my radiation-shooting peen! "You're...dribbling pee down your leg." You just wait. *straining* Okay I think I might be dehydrated. Doctors ... / Continue →

    The bathroom: it's a sacred place. If our body are temples, then the bathroom is like a janitor's closet: stocked with everything you need to keep it clean and take out the trash. Public restrooms? Those are a whole different story. Those are awful places where you hover ov... / Continue →

    Because humankind is notorious for its short-sightedness (moles too), we've shot so much shit into orbit that it's all starting to crash into each other and, soon, you won't even be able to shake a stick at heaven without hitting some broken-off piece of a satellite. Wonderful... / Continue →

    Police in Vancouver, British Columbia impounded 13 exotic sports cars after their drivers decided to race them to dinner on the highway at speeds in excess of 120MPH. No word on what restaurant they were going to, but that shit must be f***in' goooooooood. What the racers, wh... / Continue →

    Don't get me wrong, I love some painstakingly realistic character cosplay, but the clever costumes -- they're the ones that really get me. Spotted by Agent M at Fan Expo Canada, this is a dude dressed as the XBox 360 version of Call of Doodles: Black Ops. Obviously, he nailed... / Continue →

    We've seen other wingsuit flights here on Geekologie, but this is by far my favorite. The real-life batman's name is Jeb Corliss (and possibly soon to be Lifeliss), and he hits a staggering 122MPH in the video plus pops some f***ing balloons like 10-feet off the ground. The v... / Continue →

    I have no idea what Neo-Victorian means but if it's anything Neo-Nazism THEN I WILL NOT TOLERATE IT. This is a fully functional old-timey cell phone assembled from what used to be a poorly named Sagem X-5m. Now? Now it's like a vocal-callgulator or something. I dunno, I've ... / Continue →

    Damn bro those fangs are GREEN -- it's called Crest, it comes in a tube. Because science has basically devolved into trying ANYTHING, researchers at Stanford University have discovered that injecting old mice with the blood of young mice has a rejuvenating effect on the old-ti... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy shooting at his boss with an AK-47 to demonstrate the structural integrity of the bulletproof glass their company sells. It's...pretty sketchy. I'm not sure what would've happened if he'd kept firing instead of only putting three bullets in the gla... / Continue →

    This is a series of time-lapse videos created by stitching together 14-years of high-res Hubble Space Telescope images to show the movement of stellar jets from young stars over that period. What's a stellar jet? I'm partial to the SR-71 Blackbird! Fine, FINE -- some actual ... / Continue →

    Because people here on earth are pretty much tired of it, Dominos Pizza has announced they want to open a store on the moon. What the -- but the exchange rate for moon-bucks is astronomical! Astronomical, see what I did there? That's just one of many services I can provide. ... / Continue →

    That's right folks, it's officially Girl Scout Cookie season! And you know what that means don't you? If you guessed, "The Geekologie Writer is gonna awkwardly approach a table of young girls outside the grocery store and ask 'how much for everything except for the shitty low... / Continue →

    I'mma eat your face, Chief! In other busty news (a wise boob man once told me, "you can never get enough bust"), this is a giant Master Chief cake created by Mike's Amazing Cakes. How the hell they managed to make such a gravity-defying cake is beyond me, but I suspect it inv... / Continue →

    DeviantARTist artanis-one created this series of real-life realistic (well, despite being all gray) Futurama busts because...actually, I don't know why. Why do people do anything? I'll tell you: because either 1. they think it's cool and are hoping other people will think it'... / Continue →

    You just have to watch it to appreciate it, but this is a video of an F-16 R/C plane with a little video camera mounted where the pilot's head would be that's flown by a person on the ground wearing a video helmet who can also move the camera around because the helmet has a gyr... / Continue →

    "...he was here a minute ago." When you go how do you want your body finished off? I used to want to be shot out of a cannon but now I'm thinking I wanna be fed to sharks to kick off Shark Week one year. Pretty cool, right? "Whatever, just as long as you're dead." Damn y... / Continue →

    Remember that impressive Fallout fan-film from a couple months ago. I do. Does that make me special? No. Spending four years in a lead-painted crib made me special. *trying to lick ear* Well the short was so successful they deciding to turn it into a web series. And the ... / Continue →

    Russia just approved a 62-mile high-speed railway tunnel that will connect Soviet Russia and Alaska. Why? I have no idea, but if premium vodka prices mysteriously bottom out here in the U.S., well, I'd be okay with that. The Russian government has given the go-ahead on an ... / Continue →

    You might have won this round, but as soon as I figure out how to disguise a horse as a human and train it to not shit while we make our way through the queue line then IT. IS. ON. That's right, I'm going for the polo. No, no I'm not. But I will eat six hotdogs and try to v... / Continue →

    George 'Dicksforbrains' Lucas, everybody! Because George Lucas refuses to admit that, unlike wine, he's actually getting way way way shittier with age, he's decided to continue tweaking the original Star Wars trilogy for its release on Blu-Ray. What's he up to now? Read the ... / Continue →

    China is considering temporarily capturing an asteroid in earth's orbit and then mining it for all it's valuable metals. Me? I say we invent hoverboards first, THEN start mining asteroids. That way, when the asteroid does wind up destroying earth, we can at least all die hap... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like the Batamaran (see what I did there? I combined bat and catamaran) I drew for part of my Bat-fan fiction (I'm doing it again!) graphic novel, Juliet Marine's 'Ghost' stealth boat makes an appearance off the coast of New England. It floats o... / Continue →

    This is a video from Cornell University of two artificial intelligence systems talking to each other. They're nonsensical and rude, even to their own kind. Plus they pronounce Cleverbot "Cleverbutt", which gave me a serious case of the giggles. And by giggles I mean runs, be... / Continue →

    Remember Mr. Slingshot? He is like, soooooo into slingshots. I heard he likes them so much he wants to marry them. I know, it's that serious. Me? I'm married to the lord. Or is that nuns? I dunno, but one of them used to let us drink the Ocean Spray cran-grape juice out ... / Continue →

    So I'm pretty sure James Bond tried to assassinate me last night by poisoning my Indian delivery (restaurant will remain nameless pending investigation). I'm practically immortal though so I'm still alive but I do feel like a half dozen buttholes sewn together. This is a spac... / Continue →
