    One call to Commissioner Gordon and I'll have your badges! So apparently Batman (not this little turd) got pulled over in Silver Spring, Maryland (more of my old stomping grounds!) this week for not having a license plate on the back of his surrogate Lamborghini Batmobile, onl... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a toilet plunger with no stick, a robotic jellyfish developed by Virginia Tech (not again!) and the University of Texas at Dallas plots its next stinging of an unsuspecting beach goer. "Hey GW -- if you get stung I'd pee on it for you." I k... / Continue →

    You ever tried to steal somebody's briefcase before? It's not that hard if you have one that looks identical. If you don't have one that looks identical, things get trickier. You may need to fill a gym-sock full of pennies and brain them from behind. Enter the Super Safe Su... / Continue →

    In much, MUCH sadder food news, here's what a pizza cooked for 13 hours looks like. I assume it was cooked at low heat because I have definitely forgotten about pizzas in the oven before and eventually they DO catch fire. That's how you know they're done! *burns roof of mout... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Batmobiles drag racing. Specifically, one from the 1960's television series and one from the original 1989 Tim Burton movie. Although, truthfully, I don't think they actually raced, based on the camera work it looks staged. Also, there's almost eight m... / Continue →

    This is a vom-inducing video from a camera that's been attached to a jump rope. Although I don't think it's actually a jump rope, I think it's more rigid than that and just rotates around the handles. Also, it's not a straight-cut video -- every time the rope passes under the... / Continue →

    This is a video of a blue laser playing the Portal theme 'Still Alive' while etching the Aperture Science logo into a sheet of metal. It...is pretty cool. Granted not as cool as a guy in a raptor costume playing the Jurassic Park theme on my washboard abs with a sledgehammer,... / Continue →
