    Sure it may LOOK like a giant blue dildo with legs, but looks can be deceiving. Except in this case, because that's a walking shlong if I've ever seen one (and I have -- lots). The inflatable Ant-Roach robot was designed to carry passengers on the ride of a miserable lifetime... / Continue →
  • Remember the first time you saw Toy Story? How you went in thinking it was a saccharine tale of plastic figures, but by the end you were crying because it turned out this "toy story" wasn't about toys at all; IT WAS ABOUT FRIENDSHIP. Well, prepare to feel that all again, but in... / Continue →

    So we've already seen Burton's line of Star Wars snowboards, and here comes the perfect accessory: an R2-D2 crash helmet. Would I get shot out a cannon wearing one? Yes. Would I get shot out of a car wearing one? No, because I always buckle up. BOOM -- holiday safety PSA o... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video from the BBC of a brinicle doing its thing. A brinicle is formed when brine (extra salty water -- both denser and colder than the sea water around it) makes its way through the ice above and falls to the ocean floor, creating a frozen hollow "sheath"... / Continue →

    Troll skulls: they really tie a room together. This is a video of a guy who collected 1,000 troll skulls in Skyrim and then dumped them all over his house so he has to wade through them on the way to the kitchen. You know, I actually did something similar in Fallout 3 except,... / Continue →

    Wait -- IT'S 2011?! Thanks bionic contact! Because the University of Washington obviously doesn't take threats written on bar napkins and addressed to "you Terminator loving pencil-peens" seriously, they've decided to proceed with their bionic contact experiments and have suc... / Continue →

    Seen here playing with himself in more ways than one, a man contemplates his next move on Hammacher Schlemmer's $300 Vertical Chess Set. In case you couldn't tell, it's a wall-mounted chess set. Sure you could probably make a table-top version out of a heavily modified Connec... / Continue →

    I mean, awesome if it's true, I just know I've been on the steady downhill since I was six. I'm talking below the x-axis downhill. But maybe it's because I'm not so much a nerd or regular person, but something else entirely. "A loser with no future?" *tapping finger to nose... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus trying to carry a crab from one tidal pool to another at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach, California. He's not really the best land-walker I've ever seen, but he is trying to carry a crab half the time, and it's not easy struttin' that... / Continue →

    I dunno, those look like little Pac-Man ghosts to me. A group of Swedish scientists have allegedly produced real-life photons from "virtual" ones. How do we know they're not lying? We don't. That's why I say we raid their lab, steal all their notes, and ask questions later.... / Continue →

    This is a series of Facebook status updates chronicling some poor f***er's Elder Scrolls: Skyrim marathon gone horribly, horribly wrong (hit the jump for the entire series). It's fake but funny. I've seen similar things done in the past, but without such a bloody ending. Sur... / Continue →
  • Asked to record an audio commentary as a bonus feature for a DVD release of Total Recall, star and former state official Arnold Schwarzenegger apparently interpreted this request as a solicitation for him to watch the film and simply describe what is happening on screen and whe... / Continue →

    This is a paper wine bottle. It was designed to help reduce the energy use associated with shipping wine because, I don't know if you've ever been beat in the head with one in a really fancy bar fight before, but those glass bottles are heavy. I'll f***ing kill you, Mr. Monop... / Continue →
  • Hollywood is always on the lookout for new, young talent that can make cheap things look expensive--like how rhinestones do with sweatshirts. Thus, Spanish comic book artist-turned-director Jesús Orellana has been building a name for himself for an stylish, action-filled, ten-m... / Continue →

    Because 900-year old Jedi masters can't survive on Dagobah swamp stew and dragonlizard dicks alone, here's Yoda in a Japanese advertisement for Nissin Cup Noodles. I'm not really sure what the relationship between Yoda and ramen is supposed to be, but my guess is a sexual one.... / Continue →

    This is the world's lightest material. Dandelion seeds. "I think it's the other thing." Oh, right. Some sort of hollow metallic lattice. How light is light? Try over 100x lighter than Styrofoam. WTF KIND OF SORCERY IS THIS?! The material is a micro-lattice in structure... / Continue →
