    According to a recent study published by space-scientists (astronomists? I've been drinking), our sun is the most perfectly spherical naturally occurring object in the known universe. And here I've been all along thinking it was pool balls. STUPID STUPID STUPID. Science, de... / Continue →

    4? Crank that thing up to at least 12! We all sweat. I'm talking about us dudes, not you ladies. Ladies don't sweat. Or smell. And they DEFINITELY don't use the bathroom. I assume women's restrooms are just all sinks and perfume. This is an armpit microwaver that nukes ... / Continue →

    Picture related: shouldn't be behind the wheel. 24-year old Justin A. Clark was recently arrested for a DUI and blew a solid 0.627. For reference, 0.08 is the typical legal limit in the states, and most people involuntarily pass out with a blood alcohol content between 0.3 - ... / Continue →

    Researchers at Harvard University have developed a squishy octopus-like robot that can have different colored dyes pumped through its skin to change colors, then remain motionless until you walk by and HELLO, FACEHUGGER. The machine was made from silicon-based polymers, and ... / Continue →

    This is a 1.8-million LEGO block build of a futuristic version of Japan's skyline. Over 5,000 children gathered at six different centers across the country to participate in the project, and all the buildings were brought to Tokyo and connected into a giant map of Japan. Pret... / Continue →

    This is a LOST themed nursery designed by some parents as some sort of sick social experiment for their currently unborn child. Oooooor maybe they just liked the show. And so did I! How bout that? I still wish they would've tied up the loose ends a little better though. Li... / Continue →

    This is the cinematic made to advertise the latest Warcraft expansion, 'Mists of Pandaria'. I'm pretty sure all you hardcore World of Warcrafters (WoWzers?) have already seen it, but it's worth a watch even for your non-players. Me? I'm the opposite of a player. One time at... / Continue →

    This is a video of a lil spider chasing a laser beam because nobody had the heart to tell it its probably the most hated form of life on earth and not a cat (I would have). No word if they splattered its guts all over the wall when they were done filming, but let's just assume... / Continue →

    Because eBay is run by a bunch of Muggles, the online auction giant has decided to ban the sale of magic potions, curses, spells, and anything else cool that might be worth buying. Fingers crossed cat jewelry is still a go (for my sister's sake). Effective August 30, eBay's 2... / Continue →

    This is a custom wooden Game of Thrones themed RISK set made by artist Fay Helfer. Hopefully it'll spur Parker Brothers to make an officially licensed version, because I would play that. I'd also brandish a sword at the table and drink mulled wine. Or wine coolers, I don't c... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO lenticular (NOT testicular) created by Arthur Gugick featuring Batman when viewed from one side, and the Joker when viewed from the other. Head-on it kind of looks like Two-Face. "Wow -- solid Batman universe tie-in, GW." Thank you, I had to put my thinking c... / Continue →

    Thank God for that rug tying the room together. Because I'm always looking for excuses to get the cops called to my apartment, PIXERS has released a line of 'bloody splashes' wall murals. They come in over 60 different styles and can be ordered in just about any size and shap... / Continue →

    Note: Actual drink will not have stars and galaxies in it. Want to make a drink that glows under blacklight to impress all the ladies that won't show up to your next college party? Well you're in luck thanks to this recipe for an Aurora, a cocktail jungle-juice variation that... / Continue →

    This is a video of an American Staffordshire Terrier named Tret The Superdog who was trained in the art of parkour by his caretaker in the Ukraine. He is really good. Way better than I could ever do and I actually have fingers for gripping. At least I think that's what they'... / Continue →

    This is Mad Catz's $300 S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 gaming keyboard. It has more bells and whistles than a bell and whistle factory and is definitely nicer than my laptop's keyboard, but only because my F and M keys are broken and I have to copy/paste them out of a Notepad document wheneve... / Continue →

    Picture only moderately related: different brobro. A fifteen year old in Ohio was recently hospitalized after playing Modern Warfare 3 for "AT LEAST" four days straight. His mom (if you can even call her that after letting her kid play video games for four days straight) says... / Continue →

    These are some classic Donkey Kong inspired wall shelves designed by Igor Chak (of Space Invaders couch fame). They're just conceptual though, but if you're handy I imagine you could build them yourself. If you're not handy I imagine you could cut all your fingers off. Ooooo... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. This is a TARDIS DeLorean (TarDeLorean) Photoshopped together by artist Pacta for a DeLorean themed photo-manipulation contest. If it were real, I would totally drive it. But since it's not, I'm limited to sitting on the couch IMAGINING I'm driving... / Continue →

    Now make Harley Quinn pole-dancing on a toilet brush. This is a custom Batman toilet paper holder made by Redditor conrick. He stands 31-inches tall and only dispenses the good stuff. None of that newsprint toilet paper you can still read the headlines on. I dunno though, I... / Continue →

    This is a video of astronaut Don Pettit (of playing with water in space fame) yo-yoing aboard the International Space Station. He looks like Steve Jobs, but talks like he has a head-cold. Man, I wish I was in space. But not really though because I freak out in confined space... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone familiar with old Japanese monster movies, mutant butterflies have been found to be breeding near the site of Japan's 2011 Fukushima power plant disaster. The butterflies are said to have the strength of ten men and an insatiable appetite... / Continue →

    Because we can never have enough words, Merriam-Webster has announced the 100 new additions to its dictionary with the hopes people still buy dictionaries and the one you've had your entire life doesn't cut it anymore because it doesn't contain words like man-tits or blog. The... / Continue →

    Picture unrelated: he actually bought that beer. Because even bears know how to party harder than most of my friends (thanks for the birthday party, jerks!), a family of black bears recently TORE THE WALL OFF A CABIN to gain access, chugged over 100 beers and ate all the food... / Continue →

    Denis Medri (of rockabilly/1950's Batman and steampunk Spiderman characters fame) is back at it, this time with the cast of Star Wars reimagined as characters from a 1980's high school movie. He did well. I especially liked Han, Chewie, C-3PO and R2. Oooh -- and Obi Won and ... / Continue →

    This is a pair of $20 plastic Wolverine claw toys. They're pretty cheesewhizzy, but I still want them. I've been looking for something that says, "Don't mess with me" when I'm out jogging at night. Apparently the fanny-pack isn't cutting it. "And you feel like something ... / Continue →

    Remember last year's "lifelike" rendering of Dr. Zoidberg as imagined by creature designer Jared Krichovsky? Well he's back with more characters, this time giving the realistic treatment to Morbo, Nibbler, Lrrr and Kif. Once again, amazing job. The guy my landlord sent to re... / Continue →

    Because what good is a houseplant if it can't be used to change the channel real quick from the adult movie you were watching when your roommate comes home unexpected, scientists at Disney Research in Pittsburgh have developed a system that turns plants into gesture-based contr... / Continue →

    Remember the conceptual Dr. Who TARDIS ring from jeweler Pathetic Peripatetic? Well now it's a real ring he'll actually make you. Not cheap though -- no, not cheap. No word if he's willing to use pieces of broken marbles instead of gems to help keep the cost down. Pathetic ... / Continue →

    This is the footage of a group of Pacific white-sided dolphins Mark Peters captured after dragging a GoPro camera behind his boat while tuna fishing. Dolphins, man, they're like...smarter than all my close friends. ISN'T THAT RIGHT, DUMMIES? "I don't think they read Geekolog... / Continue →

    Cleanliness is next to godliness. I think that's an ancient proverb or something but I just remember it from that one Smashing Pumpkins song. You ever bathed with a Zora before? Me neither, but I would be willing to. Same goes for a Goron. These are a series of Zelda soaps... / Continue →

    Note: Not my cake but that would have been cool. So I had a birthday yesterday and it was a huge success provided success is measured in near-death experiences (which it is). August 13th is always International Left Hander's Day so I'm celebrating that today because I'm a sou... / Continue →
