    YOU WILL NEVER BEAT THE NEW CAR SMELL. Because this is the world we live in, a fragrance was created by custom scent developer Air Aroma to embody the smell of an Apple product unboxing. The scent will diffused into the air at the upcoming De Facto Standard art show in Melbou... / Continue →

    This is a series of faux-leather gaming chairs from DreamSeat (pfft -- my dreamseat is the captain's chair of a spaceship) with licensed Marvel character back graphics. Per copy/pasted product description because it's Friday afternoon and I went out drinking last night because... / Continue →

    This a carved wood guitar by Gig Goldstein (Gig -- that's a great rock name!) featuring an impressive alien in the style of H.R. Giger. The guitar took 40-50 hours to complete but would only take a rockstar seconds to set on fire and smash on stage. Back me up, Jimi! "It's al... / Continue →

    This is Don Schwabs sporting his Pikachu Pokemon Card costume at the recent Melbourne Supanova Pop Cultcha Expo. You can tell it's a great costume because you can still wear cargo shorts with it. Thanks to Little Sister, who I promised to protect with my spinning drill arm an... / Continue →

    According to a recent study by scientists at MIT, mice fed yogurt grew more luxuriant fur and larger testicles compared to those who ate normal mouse food or the equivalent of mouse fast-food. Haha, and you all laughed at me for eating Activia to keep me regular! First, the s... / Continue →

    Want a condo with a glass-walled pool balcony? Me neither. I just want one with my own washer and dryer. You'd never guess how many people in my building don't clean the lint-trap after a load of laundry. Unless you guessed all of them -- it's like a pube rainbow in there. ... / Continue →

    First of all, the fact that sex tourism even exists depresses the hell out of me. I'll take a beach and a tropical drink over a prostitute aaaaaaany day. But that's just me, and I'm not a big ball of sadness, desperate to get his dangle-down played with. Enter robotic prosti... / Continue →

    Here's a couple pictures of a giant golden orb spider eating a brown tree snake in some dude's garden in Cairns, Australia. You know, because apparently that's what spiders in Australia do -- they eat f***ing snakes. *cancels Australian leg of Geekologie world tour* "A few t... / Continue →

    This is a line of laser-cut nori (seaweed) sushi wrappers created by Japanese ad agency I&S BBDO (pronounced boobie-do, as in, "her stomach sticks out further than her boobie-do") for Umino Seaweed to help boost business after last year's devastating tsunami. I dig them. I al... / Continue →

    This is a Salvador Dali inspired Star Wars ribcage tattoo conceptualized and inked by DeviantARTist graynd. As you can see, it's got a drippy Jabba and Death Star in the style of the clocks from Dali's 'The Persistence of Memory', and stick-legged AT-AT and AT-ST from 'Les Elep... / Continue →

    Picture related: what almost happened. A Jetstar pilot was forced to abort a landing in Singapore after he forgot to put down the landing gear on time because he was using his cell phone. I...am never flying again. Well, not on a plane anyways. Only with my jetpack. The ca... / Continue →

    Burger King in Japan is currently running a promotion where you can add 15 strips of bacon to a burger for an extra ¥100 (~$1.25). So what did some reporter do? Went ALL IN and ordered 1,050 extra slices, creating this $90 monstrosity. In related news, I assume you could get... / Continue →

    In case you haven't haven't seen it, here's a video of Romanian children Stephan (10), Olga (8) and Cornelia (5) covering Rammstein's classic 'Sonne'. They do a good job. Like, a really good job. And, whether you believe letting your children perform metal songs is okay or n... / Continue →

    The police gave him a free night's stay in the clink! Meet Michael Baker, the 20-year old failure at life who siphoned gas from a Jenkins, Kentucky police cruiser, had his eyebrowless girlfriend take a picture, then posted it to his Facebook. You know, to make it easy as poss... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what Youtube would look like as a dress? I pray to God not, but seek help if you have. Thankfully, designer Victor Faretina has done all the imagining for us normal people, with a conceptual line of fancy-ass dresses inspired by popular websites. Admittedly, Vict... / Continue →

    This is a 6-foot, 10-inch papercraft Samus Aran sculpture made from nothing but paper, glue and patience by skilled paper folder IAmThatOneGuy. Me? IAmNOTThatOneGuy. As a matter of fact, you and I haven't even met before. And if the cops show up I was never here and I DEF... / Continue →

    According to experts, if confirmed, this will be only the second depiction of a female Roman gladiator ever found, but even more impressive than the first considering this one killed whatever the hell she did with only one a single hand and leg. I wouldn't f*** with her if I w... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE for a better view. This is a world map of lightning strikes as measured in lightning flashes per square kilometer per year. And the winner is...the heart of Africa! Congratulations, now we need to find out a way to turn that into usable electricity.... / Continue →

    This is a man wearing a sealed fishbowl over his head and breathing out of some sort of homemade respirator. Why? The same reason men do anything -- to gain the attention of the opposite sex. Just look at those two ladies in the picture. You know what they're thinking? I'm... / Continue →

    Note: NSFW language, just put your headphones in and pretend you're catching up on the news. So it's only mid-April and already we've got a 2012 blooper reel of reporters accidentally saying penis, hooters and boner on-air. Wow, these people might actually suck at their jobs ... / Continue →

    Skulls: we all have them. Some might be thicker than others allowing less room for a brain, but that's okay (I was talking about you!). This is a gallery of elaborate porcelain skulls created by artist Katsuyo Aoki. Now I like collecting the skulls of my enemies as much as t... / Continue →

    This is a fairly worthwhile animated Legend of Zelda musical. The production value and overall quality is high, but if musicals aren't your thing you probably won't like it. "Pfft, musicals are for girls!" No they're not either -- what about Phantom of the Opera? "That's th... / Continue →

    In news that may blow some people's minds (and to commemorate the the 100 year anniversary of the disaster), authorities re-released these photos they believe depict the remains of one unfortunate Titanic passenger who came to rest near the stern. Wow, really hard to believe c... / Continue →

    I want that beer and I want it now. This is a little video game inspired minigolf course built to celebrate Tom Scott's 10,000th day on earth. Where did he live before that? No clue, but my guess is Reaper controlled territory. Also, I really hope we weren't supposed to bri... / Continue →
  • Like the last viral video for Prometheus, this latest video focuses on Michael Fassbender's David, a "cybernetic individual" designed to nearly indistinguishable from mankind. This time, the viral runs like a full promotional video for the David product, freeing Fassbender from... / Continue →

    Well folks, the Space Shuttle Discovery felt the wild blue yonder for the last time today, making a low-altitude flight over Washington DC atop it's special 747 shuttle carrier on the way from Florida to its final resting place at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. ... / Continue →

    This is a 5-second (literally, five seconds) time-lapse video of the sun exploding with a brilliant solar flare yesterday (April 16th). It wasn't a particularly strong one, but it is one of the most impressive NASA's managed to catch on tape. The most impressive thing I've ma... / Continue →

    This is a badass Captain America themed cake made by Tumblr-er LoveandLotsofSugar for her son's 4th birthday. As you can see (and the title I wrote clearly states), it has an American flag interior. Me? I'm all blood and guts on the inside. You? You're full of hot air. "... / Continue →

    This is the Phillips' latest award-winning LED light bulb, a 10-watter that produces the light equivalent (and warm glow) of a 60-watt incandescent and is rated to last 20-years at 4-hours/use a day. Will we even be using light bulbs in 20 years? No, we will not. The world i... / Continue →

    This is an $850 Ghostbuster Proton Pack replica from Viking Props (which, despite the name, sells zero horned helmets or Thor hammers). It's pretty accurate, and even has some light up effects. Even more light effects and some sound ones are available too, but at an extra cos... / Continue →

    This is a $650 bulletproof iPhone case from Japanese manufacturer Marudai that can allegedly stop a .50-caliber round (but only from the rear). Unfortunately there's no PROOF it can stop a .50-caliber round, since they didn't bother making a video. So you're gonna just have t... / Continue →
  • April 17, 2012
    This is a five-minute (read: four minutes too long) video of a guy blowing himself up in a giant inflatable Superman costume. Why is he wearing a mask? Probably to hide his identity from Lex Luther people who might recognize him from his dating profile. Telling a girl you ge... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're thinking, and no, you can't change your astrology sign to be a unicorn (trust me, I asked my tarot reader). This is a shot of the unicorn constellation. While you can't deny it's beauty, if you call something the unicorn constellation I better see som... / Continue →

    This is a teaser demo of CryENGINE 3.4, Crytek's latest gaming engine. So yeah, these are some of the sick graffix you can expect to see in the upcoming Crysis. Unless we're talking about my upcoming personal crisis , in which case it'll probably be a lot more long showers, c... / Continue →

    This is a butt-ass quality video (240p, picture above not related) of a guy beating The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time in 23-minutes thanks to a recently discovered glitch. What the -- why anybody would want to make the game go by any faster is a mystery to me. Man, I want... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a boat that looks like it's hovering in midair. It's not though, it's just an optical illusion caused by magic. And you know what else is caused by magic? "Don't even say it, GW." Boners. It's true -- Gandalf told me! Hit the jump for another exampl... / Continue →

    Dmitri Krioukov, a professor at the University of California, San Diego, managed to use his physics knowledge to successfully argue his way out of a $400 traffic ticket to a judge for (allegedly) failing to stop at a stop sign. I...am gonna have to try that next time. I dunno... / Continue →

    I remember this circulating the internet like six months ago but I'm gonna be honest when I tell you that I drank a lot and forgot about it. Thankfully, the internet is cyclical (and I'm clean now. Okay, clean-er. Fine, DIRTIER THAN EVER) and it's come back around again. Th... / Continue →

    Girl, has anybody told you you've got the starry-est eyes they've ever seen? Well they were making fun of you. Remember Kimberley? She's the girl who got 56 stars tattooed on her face, realized it was a bad idea, then tried to sue the artist by claiming she only asked for th... / Continue →

    Note: Song contains a healthy portion of dirty words. This is a video of a VERY impressive holographic Tupac (move over Jem!) performing at the Coachella music festival over the weekend. Not gonna lie, he looks pretty real. Almost TOO real. "You're suggesting it's really hi... / Continue →

    This is an R2-D2 inspired Technics 1200 turntable. It was a collaboration between Tex Nasty at Remix Turntable Lab and Full Blown Kustoms. Me? I like my kustoms only half blown. Honestly, of all the stupid change George Lucas made to the original movies I'm surprised he did... / Continue →
