    Seen here looking suspiciously like a robot turd, an unknown metallic sphere crashed to the ground in a remote area of Namibia, stirring a 'The Gods Must Be Crazy' moment for the locals. Well, at least in my mind it did. When the ball came down it caused a crater 12 inches ... / Continue →

    This is why poor people can't have nice things. David Derp Dopp won this 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP-640 in a convenience store's "Joe Shmo to Lambo" contest. Theeeeeeen crashed it in a field six hours later. Because that's what you do with things you win: destroy them. ... / Continue →

    Because humans shouldn't be the only ones that get to share ultrasound pictures (your baby looks like a bean!) with their friends, somebody created a Facebook-y website for robots where they can share whatever sadness is going on in their pathetic existences. Sounds familiar! ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of some Reddit user's uncle's homemade Star Trek mailbox. It's solar powered so it lights up at night to attract highschoolers with bats. I mean, I'd like to THINK they wouldn't smash it, but they would smash it. And if he rebuilt it, they would smash it again... / Continue →
