    Apparently Hidden Water Pools have been around for a couple years but the last time I went to the novelty pool store was never so I'm sure you can understand how I might have missed them. Basically they're pools with a giant pneumatic bottom that is slowly raised to become a p... / Continue →

    Picture related: future clothes. Scientists have developed a method of inexpensively creating cotton fabrics that clean and deodorize themselves when exposed to sunlight. That way, the next time somebody asks when was the last time you washed your jeans you can say honestly s... / Continue →

    Picture related: same color sabers. 33-year old (young?) David Allen Canterbury was arrested Wednesday night after somebody called 911 because he was swinging two blue lightsabers at customers in an Oregon Toys R Us. Wait...you can get arrested for that? Been there, done tha... / Continue →

    Her sari was made out of a fancy napkin, (not) true story. Man, I know you're not supposed to stare but this photo is FREAKING ME OUT. How would you like to see that burst out of a cupboard and parachute to the ground with a Doritos bag? I would NOT. Yes, yes I would. Mee... / Continue →

    The title says it all. I just didn't want to leave this part blank. Actually, I DID want to leave it blank because that would be a first for me but then I chickened out like a giant sissyboy. I swear, I can't do anything write. "That's the wrong right." SEE? I should prob... / Continue →

    In other LEGO news, the company has acquired the rights to sell Lord of the Rings playsets starting next June to help compensate for the inevitable losses from their LEGO for girls sets. But fear not, I will buy said LEGO sets for girls and dump them all in a Toys For Tots bin... / Continue →

    Want to cut your own Star Wars snowflakes to hang from the ceiling for Christmas? Of course you do, you are INTO this. Thankfully, Anthony Herrera has you covered, with printable patterns to make all the designs above (but come on, nobody's gonna make C-3PO). I actually have... / Continue →

    In 'WTF took so long?' news, the FCC has announced that starting next December, television commercials can be no louder than the shows they follow. LIFE INSURANCE, BONER PILLS, CHOLESTROL MEDS!! (I watch a lot of old westerns) After making its way through Capitol Hill, the Co... / Continue →

    LEGO, realizing they dun goofed targeting their entire product line to boys, is releasing a line of playsets in 2012 targeted specifically to little ladies. It's called 'Friends', which is a terrible name but I can look past that because I just saw a guy pushing an ice cream c... / Continue →

    Because sometimes people actually follow through with the ideas they come up with when they're high out of their f***ing minds, Etsy seller EBPearce is selling these beetles dressed up as characters from Jurassic Park. Unfortunately, there wasn't one in a velociraptor costume.... / Continue →

    Note: Uncensored shot after the jump. This is a pig born with two snouts and one eyeball in China. News agencies are calling him the Cyclops Pig, but locals will be calling him ready to eat in just a couple months. That...is a face only a mother could love. Back me up, Char... / Continue →

    This is the Pyro Board, a tabletop filled with flammable gas and soundwaves being pumped through it. Depending on the frequency, the table makes different flame patterns. No word if playing death metal with produce a pentagram and burn your house to the ground, but if I hear ... / Continue →

    Just check out this hot little number. Pretty schmexy right? WRONG! She needs to eat a damn cheeseburger is what she needs to do. Well, that, AND NOT BE A DUDE. Haha -- and you were looking at him! That makes you at least half gay right now. Andrej Pejic, a man with no ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some idiot trying to run over his girlfriend in a truck after she ducks into a gas station for safety. He misses her, but manages to hit the owner after plowing though the entire store. But the excitement doesn't stop there, oh no! Captain Roadkill then ge... / Continue →

    This is a bust (like taytays!) created by artist Ryan Renders of Darth Vader and Skeletor's lovechild. Now I'm not sure who was the top and who was the bottom in the relationship, but Skeletor doesn't wear anything but a hood and a loincloth -- you do the math. "Yeah but Vade... / Continue →

    Because themed engagement photos are all the rage these days (you crazy kids!), Geekologie Reader Sean K. and his bride-to-be decided to spice up their photoshoot in the park with a ninja attack. Aaaaaaaand these are those pictures. Because if there's one thing that brings a ... / Continue →

    Because the government doesn't want you to run me over on my walk to the bar, the National Transportation Safety Board is encouraging all states to adopt stricter bans on the use of cell phones while driving. And while they're at it they should do something about the guy I saw... / Continue →

    This is a video of Mika explaining Star Wars: A New Hope. Mika is Japanese and practices her English by watching and explaining movies. If you like this one, there's a bunch more, including The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Avatar, Inception, Spiderman and The Matr... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bearded dragon playing Ant Crusher on a smart phone with his tongue. He...is good. It's kind of sad though because he always licks his lips after eating an ant except it never tastes like ant, it tastes like his owner doesn't wash his hands after going to... / Continue →

    Sound Perfume glasses are a pair of not-cool-at-all looking spectacles with an integrated speaker and perfume dispenser that help you remember somebody by providing them with a unique sound and smell. LEMME BREAK IT DOWN FOR YA: You choose a smell and sound to represent yours... / Continue →

    This is a small series of superheroine public service announcements reminding you ladies to regularly check your breasts for breast cancer. And I couldn't agree more. Boobs are one of nature's most precious gifts, and it brings a tear to my eye even thinking about losing a si... / Continue →

    This is the Anliker McLaren SLR 999 Red Gold Dream. It started as a Mercedes SLR McLaren, but apparently after you do so much gaudy shit to something you get to rename it. You and I will now refer to it as the USS Boobooprise. It was created under the watchful retarded eye o... / Continue →

    I thought the whole one ring quote in the title was kind of appropriate because it's finger art. And where do you wear rings? "I've got one stuck on my penis and I'm freaking out!" HA -- been there, done that. Just think about Gollum until you're limp then slip it off. The... / Continue →
  • As the trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens, already the eponymous team is being betrayed. Like a mom angry that she keeps stepping on your little plastic men, the U.S. President (or, more likely, Arnold Vosloo's evil Disguise Man) has ordered the elimination of all G.I. Joe... / Continue →

    This is the $90 Click Keypad watch. It was made to look like the number pad of a computer keyboard and tells the time by blinking the corresponding numbers in order. Plus you can actually click the keys if you want to pretend like you're hacking an ATM or something to impress... / Continue →

    Louis Armstrong: hands down one of my favorite musicians of all time. Granted he didn't actually write 'What A Wonderful World', but he is the best to perform it (with Israel Kamakawiwoʻole's coming in a very close second). You ever spent a night drinking and listening to old... / Continue →

    Imagine if you could just take a nap and learn something in the process (and not just how good sleeping feels). Kind of like passing out with your head in a textbook but then NOT failing the shit out of the test the next day. Well scientists are exploring the possibility thro... / Continue →

    According to entirely untrustworthy sources, scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider are close to proving the existence of the Higgs Boson, aka 'God' particle, the elusive bit of matter responsible for providing objects with mass. Alternatively, they might be even closer to... / Continue →

    This is a terrible, butt-ass quality video of two kids duking it out in taekwondo set to the Mortal Kombat movie theme. It...will probably be the best thing you see all day. Plus Sub Zero there in the blue keeps throwing this reverse kick at Scorpion that will blow your f***i... / Continue →

    Seen here giving the camera their best serious but cool, MIT researchers Andreas Velten and Ramesh Raskar pose in front of a Coke bottle filled with highlighter fluid or something. I don't know, physics and I don't always get along. That's how I'm able to levitate. Just kidd... / Continue →

    This is a replica of the helmet worn by Dovahkiin in Skyrim except made out of popcorn bacon. Because that's what people do: make things out of bacon, then post pictures of them online. You know what the problem with a bacon helmet is though? Dragons LOOOOOOVE bacon. It's g... / Continue →

    A group of scientists recently cataloged 208 previously unknown species in the Mekong River region of southeast Asia, and among them, this "psychedelic" gecko. Apparently it's only psychedelic looking though, but if you think for one second I'm not flying to Vietnam with the h... / Continue →
  • Men in Black 3's production was reportedly plagued by long shooting delays, repeated script problems, and the difficulties of parking Will Smith's wacky, novelty-sized trailer, but you won't see any of those issues making it to the screen in the sequel's first trailer. Rather, ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a $3-million, 328-foot wind turbine in North Ayrshire, Scotland trying to cope with hurricane winds. Obviously, it coped poorly. Like me in high school getting called a dork all the time. Which brings up an important topic: bullying. Listen up kids, I w... / Continue →

    A new anti-riot laser rifle capable of producing a 3-meter (~10-ft) wall of temporarily-blinding light is set to be tested by British police forces in the coming months. If successful, rioting will become a thing of the past. Just kidding, but anarchy will require specialized... / Continue →

    This is an escalator spotted in Tel Aviv, Israel with the Star Wars opening crawl from the original movie painted on it. Why? No clue, but the one next to it has some space bubbles and stars on it, so that's something. Granted not something as cool as someone's shoelaces get... / Continue →

    This is a series of punkified Disney princesses. Who knew a couple tattoos, piercings and a band t-shirt would make such a change? I didn't even recognize half of them because I don't watch Disney cartoons they look so different. Except Areola here, I'd recognize her anywher... / Continue →

    These are a couple videos from Geekologie Reader/Skyrim lover Benjamin S. of a mod he created that allows the PC version of the game to accept dragon shout commands through a microphone. The first video is of him briefly talking about the mod and demonstrating it, the second, ... / Continue →

    Being added to the long list of ways I don't want to go, a New Jersey man died earlier this year after a back-alley peen enhancement injection from somebody with zero medical practice went horribly, horribly wrong. I know, I'm as shocked as you are. God, go buy some over-the-... / Continue →

    Seen here trying to concentrate while Superman is in the background being all, "RAWR, behold my magnificent tits!", Togepi the cockatiel sings the Super Mario Bros. theme song. I'm not sure if the bird's caretaker actually taught the bird the song or just played enough Mario t... / Continue →

    Seen here looking way too too pretty to be cooking meth at Wal-Mart the wrong way, 45-year old Elizabeth Elisha Halfmoon (cool name!) was arrested after spending 6-hours in a Tulsa, Oklahoma Wal-Mart trying to inconspicuously cook crystal meth. Thrifty! "When I saw her she h... / Continue →

    Spike TV held their 9th annual Video Game Awards on Saturday and this is the list of winners (after the jump). You may agree or disagree, but there aren't any real surprises. What were you expecting? It's a list of f***ing video game awards, not the government's UFO files. ... / Continue →
