    This is a small (but growing) series of Nintendo game characters (games for Nintendo, not all made by Nintendo) as traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock prints by Geekologie reader Ezra's illustrator friend Jed Henry. This is Samus here, but there's a Link and Mega Man after ... / Continue →

    Why it took so long for somebody to finally combine cupcakes and sausages is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with a lot of people calling themselves foodies but not really being foodies. People always like to lie about themselves to sound more interesting. Me?... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO Star Wars toy display with some holographic video effects. Do they have them at Toys R Us? No clue, I got banned from the nearest one for bicycle jousting in the store. Dammit, I was gonna buy something! No I wasn't. I was gonna peg my friend with a dodgebal... / Continue →

    Seen here shooting straight for the nuts, a robot designed to create and climb creases in fabric crawls up a man's pant leg. Don't worry though, I'm sure the robot's inventors created the thing out of necessity and not just for no reason. Its creators say that Clothbot could ... / Continue →

    This is a video of an old man opening a beer bottle with a chainsaw. I swear I've seen a video of this trick before, but whatever, this guy revs his chainsaw way more earning him +5 showmanship. You know what else chainsaws are great at opening? Legs. Haha, there's a bone i... / Continue →

    I lied in the title. It's not actually a t-rex, it's a Tyrannosaurus bataar, a slightly smaller relative of the t-rex (read: Geekologie Writer size *wink*). And now it's up for auction with a minimum bid of $875,000. You and I: we're going to buy it. No, no we're not. We'r... / Continue →

    Seen here about to find out the hard way he's not an alligator wisperer, some idiot in North Carolina prepares to get his arm bitten by an alligator on the side of a road. "The most exciting thing to happen all year" the local headlines read. Hit the jump for a news report in... / Continue →

    Seen here making the researcher in the background jealous he didn't get a beverage, a paralyzed woman uses a mind-controlled robotic arm to drink her morning coffee. If I were her? I would have made the arm punch itself in the elbow until it broke. I DON'T NEED YOUR HELP, TE... / Continue →

    This is a series of portraits by photographer Tadao Cern dirtily called Blow Job, showing people's faces being brutalized by high winds. God, they're all just so...gummy. I just couldn't do it. I'd be too afraid of my eyeballs getting blown out and then flapping around behin... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a burnt steak and a half-eaten pickle, two of the seven beach rocks a 43-year old woman was carrying when her shorts caught fire await analysis to determine what caused them to spontaneously combust. I blame Poseidon. And I'm not just sayin... / Continue →

    In a heartbreaking new discovery, scientists studying the fossilized remains of a pliosaurus (a marine reptile, not actually a traditional dino) found evidence of a degenerative bone condition similar to modern arthritis. Wow -- first arthritis, then mass extinction? *shaking... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of deviantARTist Katy-Angel doing probably the best job I've seen cosplaying as everyone's favorite gladiatorial circus ringleader, Mad Moxxi. Sadly, as much as I loved Borderlands, I couldn't bring myself to grind all the way through Mad Moxxi's Under... / Continue →

    This is the Horizontal Shower from luxury bathroomer Dornbracht. You just lay on the stone pedestal like you're about to be sacrificed for a plentiful harvest, then let the six water jets soak your body, flooding your ass with cleanliness and washing away any rogue buttcrumbs ... / Continue →

    This is a small series of art deco style travel posters by artist Dave Ault advertising some of the cities superheroes work in/are from. I don't know about you, but I'd visit Gotham City. But only if The Joker was around and throwing a gala ball I could attend. That guy -- h... / Continue →

    Icelandic Parliament member Árni Johnsen nearly died in a car accident in 2010 but was saved by a family of elves living in a 30-ton boulder nearby. So, to thank them, he's agreed to move their boulder onto his property where they can live their lives in luxury and not off the... / Continue →

    Seen here moments before child services were called, two LEGO parents grossly neglect 22 of their 24 bundles of joy crying hysteria. And now custom LEGO printer Citizen Brick is selling the orphaned minifigs for a scant $1 apiece. But seriously, somebody should have told that... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Youtube user 16bitghost's (AKA Pete's) extensive home gaming setup. As you can see, he has pretty much every console ever including some that only existed on the city of Atlantis before Poseidon sank it because its citizens started worshiping science instead ... / Continue →

    This is an easy-to-understand chart depicting how common birthdays are in the US based on data from 1973-1999. *sobbing* My parents said I was special -- it looks like half the f***ing country was born August 12th! So yeah, basically if you were born in July-September you are... / Continue →

    This is a video of a mad scientist (although he looks sort of happy in a "never learned how to smile" kinda way) showing off his homemade Tesla coil rifle. It's a battery operated Tesla coil in the form factor of a rifle. Could you take down Thor with it? Not a chance. Cou... / Continue →

    This is a 5-hour, 35-minute speedrun through Diablo 3 performed by a friend of Geekologie reader Newborn (and you can already type? Your parents must be so proud!) and three other players. Have no intentions of ever playing the game? Just take the rest of the afternoon off a... / Continue →

    Note: Full-size version HERE. This is a mock-up Justice League of America movie poster created by DeviantARTist daniel-morpheus in the style of the 1997 JLA Gallery cover by Frank Quitely, featuring some of the actors who have played the various characters in previous films an... / Continue →

    This is a video of an aspiring father/son astronaut team testing the computer-controlled booster separation of their homemade rocket. They decided to use six grams of black powder to force the two tubes apart, which, based on the explosive result, may have just been a number p... / Continue →

    Want to travel back in time and go to prom because you never did? You're a waste of a time traveler. But for those of us with serious time-traveling aspirations comes this line of DeLorean brand bicycles. Just add a bike basket, toss a flux capacitor in there, and you'll be ... / Continue →

    What better way to celebrate the demonic released Diablo 3 than with these LEGO recreations of the nine circles of hell by sculptor Mihai Mihu? "I dunno, maybe chugging Redbull and vodkas and actually PLAYING the game while blasting heavy metal?" You know what? You're alrigh... / Continue →

    BOWTIE SOLD SEPARATELY. This is a Dr. Who themed TARDIS corset. You cinch it up real good in the back, and it makes you look slimer. "Like the Ghostbuster's pet?" YOU KNOW I MEANT SLIMMER. Etsy seller Corsetwonderland is selling the thing for $225, so if you want it, go an... / Continue →

    Because what fun is sitting back and enjoying a game, Korean gamer Yoshichan beat Diablo 3 in 12 hours and 29 minutes with "368 Lifetime Kills, 412 Elite Kills and 168,481 gold as a Barbarian on normal difficulty". Since then, at least two other groups of Korean and Chinese ga... / Continue →

    This is a video from the helmet-cam of Marcelo Gutierrez as he barrels down the stairs of Monserrate Mountain in Bogata, Columbia as part of the RedBull Devotos de Monserrate 2012 race. It kind of made me motion-sick to watch. Motion-sick AND feel like a sissy. Because there... / Continue →

    According to scientists who've spent way too much time in the dark studying cave art and not nearly enough time looking at privates, this is the world's oldest known artistic etching. One of a vagina. Personally, I don't see it, and that's saying a lot because I can usually f... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone who's worn an eyepatch for a week straight pretending to be a pirate, doctors in Australia are now claiming a haircut that covers one of your eyes makes that eye lazy because it doesn't do anything but stare at your stupid hair all day lon... / Continue →

    Man, if there's one thing I love it's destruction. Sometimes I build a whole bunch of those crappy little birdhouse kits just so I can smash them to pieces with a hammer. It's a sickness -- one I have zero interest in curing. This is a time-lapse video of Youtuber Flippycat ... / Continue →

    In "things you'll wish were real when you're 85" news comes this Imperial Walker walker for old people who need a little support getting around. Me? I need a lot of support. So much I have to go to groups for the stuff. Man, I have got PROBLEMS. "No f***ing kidding you do.... / Continue →

    This is MIT grad student Charles Guan and his Chibikart, a 26MPH electric go-cart inspired by the ones from everyone's favorite N64 drinking game, Mario Kart. Now I'm not sure what 26MPH feels like when you're that close to the ground with nothing between your face and a wall ... / Continue →

    Get down from there! Who do think you are, Jesus? Want a flatscreen television that rises from a secret nook inside an aquarium? Of course you do, you're the world's richest person living in a 350-square foot apartment that just doesn't have room for both aquarium AND televi... / Continue →

    This is an actual whiskey flavored lube from the gluttons over at Epic Meal Time. Apparently they're convinced whiskey is a desirable smell to have smeared all over your privates. SPOILER: It's not. Unless you're in a relationship with another manly dude (I'm thinking a gay ... / Continue →

    This is a medley of Zelda songs being performed by Geekologie Reader Falcor T. Luckdragon and his two man ensemble Frontier Ruckus on the banjo and musical saw, with some melodica (the little keyboard you blow into) action towards the end. Now granted I didn't recognize any of... / Continue →

    In incredibly old news (my favorite kind!), the giant stone heads on Easter Island have bodies. I'm sure a lot of you already knew that, because, like me, you had a subscription to National Geographic back when it was still socially acceptable to buy the magazine for the exoti... / Continue →

    George Lucas owns a big chunk of land in Marin County, California and has been trying to build a 300,000-square foot, 350 employee production studio on it for several decades. Unfortunately for him, his rich neighbors and members of the homeowner's association have been all, "... / Continue →

    This is Glass Gem Corn. It's a corn varietal with different colored kernels. I would have called it Rainbow Corn myself, but that's just me and I'm way better at naming things than some people. *ahem* Adam and Eve! The corn may look like candy, but there's no way it tastes... / Continue →

    This is the men's public restroom in the Celestial Heights residential building in Hong Kong. They managed to (legally) pack eight urinals into a 2.5-square meter (~27-square foot) bathroom. Could you actually pee without seeing another man's dangle? Not a chance, not even i... / Continue →

    This is a series of DeviantART user nazzara's Pokemon inspired eye makeup. I posted a bunch after the jump, but she's done like a couple hundred of them so be sure to check out her page to see them all. Me? If I saw a girl wearing makeup like this at the mall I'd try to capt... / Continue →

    Seen here teleporting their thoughts to one another with a glance the way only identical twins can, Camille and Kennerly perform an electrifying version of the The Game of Thrones theme. Electrifying, get it? Because they're electric harps. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna... / Continue →
