    Is there anything worse than the sound of a crying baby? That was meant to be rhetorical. This is a video of a baby that can allegedly be soothed from a fit every time by playing the Star Wars theme. I have zero interest in testing it, so I'll just have to take their word fo... / Continue →

    This is a (currently wholesale only) inflatable unicorn horn for cats from Archie McPhee. It makes your cat look like a unicorn. No, no it doesn't. It makes them look like an angry cat with a wavy peen on its head. Still, they'll love wearing it. At least for the five seco... / Continue →

    This is a copy of Breakbot's new album 'By Your Side', pressed in dark chocolate. It's a real record you can buy at the Colette store in Paris and is advertised to play 3-5 times before your turntable's needle wears the chocolate out. Then you eat it. But not if you're a dog... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Toyota Land Cruiser that gets struck by lightning while driving down the street. Amazingly, it didn't explode like they do in my dreams. No word what the driver did to deserve the wrath of God, but my guess is tailgating. God hates tailgaters. He loves ... / Continue →

    I don't care what anybody says, I liked the first Dead Island. I had a lot of fun slicing through those undead f***ers with my electrified machete. Sure the gameplay didn't have anything to do with the cinematic trailer they made for it, but that didn't really get my panties ... / Continue →

    This is a neon sign featuring two ghostbusters proton-packing Slimer. It looks like almost an exact replica of the animated gif version posted in this article last year. The sign adorns the Mexican restaurant Touché Hombre in Melbourne, Australia and the zapping action is ani... / Continue →

    This is a video of Keo the dolphin (NOT Echo) giving birth to a baby. Do you know what a baby dolphin is called? Whatever the mother chooses to name it. "That was dumb." Fine, they're called calves. The first two minutes is just Keo swimming around with an extra tail hangi... / Continue →

    This is a video of Plymouth University professor Roy Lowry placing a bottle of sealed liquid nitrogen in a trashcan, then covering the bottle with 1,500 ping-pong balls. What happens next? Nothing I ever got to witness in any of my lame-ass science classes, I can tell you tha... / Continue →

    This is a video of Valve employees unboxing and playing with the spot-on Portal turret replica sent to them from Weta Workshop. It even has motion-tracking capabilities so it can aim at you wherever you go. It doesn't shoot anything though, just has some light-up gun effects ... / Continue →

    This is the 1:1 scale Alien chestburster plushie from ThinkGeek. They measure 48" long, cost $25, and have an internal wire running their entire length so you can pose them. Now if I were a regular blog I would probably stop here. But since I'm so handsome and INTERNET VALUE... / Continue →

    This is the Cereal Light by designer ideaka (aka Chris Haines). It looks like a glowing bowl of cereal and turns on and off with a touch of the spoon. Neat! This is just a prototype though, but Chris' website says they're going into production, so they may be available soon.... / Continue →

    This is a video of a girl with pink hair (for all you colorblinders out there!) impersonating a bunch of emoticons in real life. Does she do a good job? I'll leave that up to you to decide. But if you twisted my arm to weigh in I'd probably change the subject real quick to a... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robotic monkey mounted to a shopping cart that cries and sprays water everywhere and makes what can only be described as the worst sound you'll hear all day. You know, there should be laws against stuff like this. If I'm not allowed to pee on the sidewalk ... / Continue →

    This is the first level of Super Mario Bros. 3-D printed as a Möbius strip by Shapeways seller joabaldwin to forever doom Mario into repeating the same stage over and over until the end of time. For those of you who don't know what a Möbius strip is, you should feel shame. No... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a video of a group of Korean engineering students seeing sexy girls (Waveya) dance in real life for the first time. They...really get into it. So much so two guys run off holding hands to presumably make out in a corner around the 0:55 mark. Hey -- lips are... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy with balls so big they rival the Death Star standing a scant 30-meters (~100-feet) from the VERY active lava lake inside a volcano. No word if he ever saw Anakin's arm or legs float by. Geoff Mackley, Bradley Ambrose, Nathan Berg, after an epic strugg... / Continue →

    This is a collaboration piece between Vincent Van Gogh and DeviantARTist SirNosh featuring Pac-Man and some ghosts running amok in Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'. Now I'm not saying throwing some video game characters into classic paintings would be a great way to get kids interest... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber MrLaduj1 testing the durability of a Durex condom by blowing one up with Coke and Mentos. Who knew condoms could stretch so far? I did. *wink* Get it? Because my pecker's so giant. That's a lie though, I got it stuck inside a thimble once and ha... / Continue →

    Remember the first "Mr. Wizard's a dick" supercut? WELL HERE'S ANOTHER ONE. This one features what is arguably the the best Mr. Wizard line of all time though: "You know you can do this at home yourself -- you don't need to come over to my house to do it." I tell my friends... / Continue →

    I'm joking, there's no way Satan could be upset right now. With the world in turmoil, that ass-hat is probably popping fresh charcoals into his butthole with the biggest happiness-eating grin you could imagine right now. I say we nuke the bottom of the ocean and try to flood ... / Continue →
