    Stephen Hawking, best known for inventing science from the confines of a motorized wheelchair, apparently likes to go to sex clubs. It's not really groundbreaking news, as there have been reports of him visiting nudey bars in England for the past decade, but a full-blown SEX c... / Continue →

    Let's face it: everyone, deep down in their coal-black hearts, is a furry. Except -- EXCEPT -- for me an all the normal f***ing people who are actually scalies/featheries. CAW, CAW! This is a pair of homemade animatronic cat ears similar to the Neurowear ones except these o... / Continue →

    This is a video of a girl playing an original Pokemon love song on the ukelele. If you like Pokemon, you'll probably enjoy it. If you're indifferent to Pokemon, you might think it's okay or "not bad". But if you hate Pokemon YOU NEED TO GET A GOT-DAMN LIFE AND STOP HATING ON... / Continue →

    Because what CAN'T iPhones sell, police in China recently confiscated 681 stoves that had been illegally branded with the Apple phone's logo. Haha -- that, uh, that's illegal? *blocking door to iPhone toaster warehouse* Hit the jump for some more shots of the million dol... / Continue →

    Because sometimes I like to get in touch with my feminine side (read: slip into one of my girlfriend's thongs and sass around in front of the bathroom mirror telling myself I'm a pretty lady), I can appreciate things like this. Also, the freedom your buttcheeks experience in a... / Continue →

    Inb4 don't try to talk me out of it! Seen here in the spacious (albeit untidy) interior of his double-wide, a man prepares to shoot himself point-blank in the stomach to test a bulletproof vest. No word what would have happened if the test had failed, but my guess is made thi... / Continue →

    This is the $250 OPMOD Battle Mug, a 24-ounce beer receptacle milled out of a solid 13.5-lb block of aluminum that comes equipped with military-spec rails so you can attach all kinds of scopes and laser sights. "Yeah but why?" WHY?! To make sure you don't miss your mouth, du... / Continue →

    Paleontologists at Drexel University have developed a means of scanning fossilized dinos, then printing accurate reproductions of their bones to assemble into accurately-moving robotic dinosaurs. No word if they plan on adding skin to them, but I'm not into the bony look. Am ... / Continue →

    Because WHY THE F*** SHOULD CATS be the only ones having a good time chasing laser pointers, this puffer fish decided to give it a go. And he likes it! Just kidding, he thinks it's food and winds up with nothing but a mouthful of sand every time. Speaking of which -- rememb... / Continue →

    This is a Twilight themed engagement shoot by K&K Photography. I'm not really sure what makes it 'Twilight' themed besides 1. being in the woods 2. their outfits and 3. the brooding, uninterested looks on their faces, but I guess that's all it takes. Oh -- and lots of shadows... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of Richard "8-bit Builder" Clinton building a Link computer case inspired by the SNES classic 'A Link to the Past'. Now I don't know about you, but I, for one, would be stoked to have that sitting on my desk. A grown man in a diaper demanding I span... / Continue →

    Because SOMEBODY had to do SOMETHING with all those unwanted AOL CDs, Australian artist Sean Avery decided to put them to good use creating little animal sculptures (custom ones available on his website for ~$320-$850). Good lookin', Sean. Some artists work in paint, some in ... / Continue →

    This is the Tongue Drive System developed by researchers at Georgia Tech. Using a tongue piercing with a magnetic tip and retainer with magnetic sensors, the device is able to track tongue movement, which is then translated into on-screen action. *trying to tongue a piece of ... / Continue →

    The Lord of the Rings Project is a massive family tree created by Swedish student Emil Johansson to highlight all the familial connections between characters in the series. It contains over 800 characters and can even be modified to display only dwarves, hobbits, muggles, etc.... / Continue →

    27-year old Meredith Lowell had a plan. A plan of hiring a hitman on Facebook to stab somebody to death wearing fur at a public library, then she'd swoop in and immediately start passing out animal rights propaganda. Unsurprisingly, it didn't work. No word if she's ever hear... / Continue →

    Because why shouldn't robotic fish lead all the live ones into the mouths of sharks to inflate the price of sushi, scientists at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University have developed a little robotic fish that real ones find so convincing they're willing to follow it ... / Continue →

    Remember CERN's claim that they found neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light? Weeeeeell now they want to renege, blaming a faulty fiber-optic cable and timing gear for the erroneous results. Jesus -- and we're supposed to trust these people to NOT tear open a blac... / Continue →

    Look out, Naga Viper chilli, there's a new hottest pepper in town -- the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Pepper. How hot is it? *touches butt, makes 'tsssssssss' sound* Even hotter than that if you can believe it. "That was ice-cold." But I've been working out! The team plante... / Continue →

    A 345-piece comic book collection discovered when Michael Rorrer was cleaning the house of his recently deceased aunt was discovered to contain 44 of the top 100 golden-age comics including Action Comics #1 (Superman's first appearance), Detective Comics #27 (Batman's first app... / Continue →

    This is a ceiling lamp made by deviantARTist Kilh to resemble a barnacle from Half-Life. You know, the giant gaping mouths that would suck you up with their tongues then polish you off with their teats teeth. I'm not sure what the 1950's housewife in the poster is saying to h... / Continue →

    This is a picture of some brobro who got Zelda's crest shaved into the back of his head. It's not me, I swear -- my ears aren't pierced and I don't wear a gold chain. I do have that Last Supper print and a straw hat, but the similarities stop there. Besides, I'm not into the... / Continue →

    This is a peek at Hasbro's (OMG -- I has bros too!) upcoming 'My First Transformer' toy line. It was designed for young children and people like me who would try to eat and subsequently choke on the wheels of a regular Transformer. My first Transformer? My first transformer ... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap can do the trailer justice, just watch it. Borderlands -- hands down one of my favorite first-person shooters. I've been a little skeptical about the sequel still having the same apocalyptic old-western feel to it and not turning into an all-out militaristi... / Continue →

    From DeviantARTist Azmal (the same leather-worker who brought us the suit of lion armor) comes this Dark KNIGHT inspired getup. I would wear it. I would wear it, and I would charge neighborhood kids $1 apiece to throw dirt clumps at me. Then I would take all those dollars an... / Continue →

    Remember the 1995 post-apocalyptic classic, Waterworld? That was a good movie. It had everything a movie needs to be a winner: Kevin Costner, and modified jet skis. I might even watch it again tonight. But enough about my titillating evening plans, scientists have confirmed... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a little girl cosplaying as a cyclops at the recent Wonder Festival in Tokyo. At first I thought she was just a mannequin, but there's a full shot of her after the jump, and, yep, it's an actual little girl in a mask. Unlike someone I know. You hear that, P... / Continue →

    Seen here with 1990's Vanilla Ice cheesin' it up in the background, this is a video of Batman IRL yelling at people in Toronto. I almost didn't post it because the filmmakers said their initial intention was to make a 'Shit Batman Says' video and every single one of those vide... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like an artist's rendering instead of an actual photo, two stems of Sylene stenophylla bloom after the seeds laid dormant in an ice age squirrel's burrow for some 30,000 years. That...is a long time. Way longer than any of my seeds have stayed v... / Continue →

    NUKEMAP is a Google Maps application created by Alex Wellerstein (who may or may yes live in a fallout bunker) to visualize the area affected if a nuclear bomb was dropped in your neighborhood. You just choose the size of the atomic bomb you want to drop (or a historical prese... / Continue →

    Seen here trying to look at both of us at the same time, this is a video containing "pretty much every denial" of Lieutenant Worf throughout Star Trek: The Next Generation. How he never goes Planet Express on everyone (get it? like going postal but in the future!) and kills th... / Continue →

    This is a series of ceramic 'Transportation Plates' from designer Boguslaw Sliwinski. I dunno, they seem more like half transportation and half CONSTRUCTION plates to me, but what do I know? I know my name isn't Boguslaw, so I'm pretty confident I'm in the right here. As you... / Continue →

    This is a Volkswagen bus AT-AT spotted by long time tech journalist Jack Schofield. Or maybe he didn't actually take the picture, maybe he just posted it on his Twitter to make people THINK he took the picture. I've done that before. "The one of the boobs?" Haha, yeah -- th... / Continue →

    You may have already seen this if you watch the commercials between The Walking Dead or visited the internet yesterday, but zombies scare me and I was at the doctor's office all day getting probed the whole time trying to figure out out where my superhuman strength and unnatura... / Continue →

    This is a custom Decepticon engagement ring setting created by DeviantARTist TheBoog17. Because if there's one thing that should symbolize a lasting marriage, it's deception. No word if it transforms and rolls out into a slap bracelet, but that would make it infinitely cooler... / Continue →

    Inb4 what's a dong lut? Note: Spending President's Day at doctor's appointments, back tomorrow FULL BLAST. I've actually known about Don Glut's dinosaur museum for awhile but wasn't willing to share because, well, now that io9.com CAN'T KEEP A SECRET, his server are forever c... / Continue →
