    Note: Please, try to keep the metal metal band jokes to a minimum. This is a video of the robotic band Compressorhead practicing in the garage of some human they likely killed. Unfortunately (or is it?), as somebody pointed out in the video's comments, you can really only hea... / Continue →

    41-year old New Yorker Daniel is a huge Star Trek fan. He's also been battling leukemia for the last three years and only has weeks to live due to an aggressive tumor. *fighting back tears* And, just like a knight in shining armor wearing a jetpack, one of Daniel's friends p... / Continue →

    This is a Solid Snake balloon animal sculpture. You might argue he's not actually a balloon ANIMAL, but you'd be wrong, because he's a snake. Also, I'm not sure what the hell that guy from the carnival is doing there but he let goat-boy escape again there's going to be hell t... / Continue →

    This is a pair of single spiral high heel (that's kind of similar to this thing) from designer Julian Hakes. It looks like something you'd see in a cheesy futuristic movie. It's not though, it's a real shoe and you can buy them in a bunch of different colors for around $205. ... / Continue →

    In news that provides some hope that one day we might actually get off this hellbound planet to go f*** up another one, a research team led by astronomer Jonathan Swift is now estimating the Milky Way galaxy contains somewhere between 100 and 200-billion alien planets, at least... / Continue →

    This is a series of US bank notes defaced (technically refaced) with Justice League characters by artist Aslan (like the lion) Malik. Although I'm pretty sure he didn't actually draw ON the bills, it was all done INSIDE A COMPUTER. Think TRON, but with like, a shit-ton more g... / Continue →

    These are a pair of Batman symbol wall bookshelves crafted by Etsy Seller Fahmi Sani of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He was selling them in his shop a week ago for around $285, but he got such a response that he's pulled them from his store while he fulfills his current orders. An... / Continue →

    A 16-year old girl and her 15-year old BFF (and future cellmate) used prescription sleeping pills to lace the milkshakes of the 16-year old's parents so they would fall asleep and the girls could use the internet after their 10PM 'no internet use' curfew. Presumably to webcam ... / Continue →

    This is a $50 detachable lockpicking set etched out of a titanium business card (similar to the one this guy made a long time ago) so you can carry the power to break and enter around in your wallet. Me? I carry the power to break and enter around IN MY SHOE. *kicking door* ... / Continue →

    Scientists at the Keck Institute for Space Studies are cooking up a plan to capture an asteroid and place it in our moon's orbit so it can have a little satellite of its own. Cute! Basically the idea is to send a specially designed spacecraft to go bag a tiny asteroid (like, ... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a Melbourne, Australia fireworks show viewed in reverse. No screepcap can really do it justice though, so I suggest you at least watch a little bit of it. A lot of the fireworks reminded me of those little shooting stars you see in your vision af... / Continue →

    This is the hybrid face shot Redditor morphinapg made by morphing the faces of Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale together to create the "perfect" face of Batman. You may have noticed I put perfect in quotation marks. That's because it lo... / Continue →

    This is a $35 one-piece Stay Puft Marshmallow Man pajama suit. Cute, but it looks a little tight for me. Especially around the...you know. "Cuffs?" Come on! I was trying to fake like I have a big peen. Thanks to Linny, who agrees you wear that thing to bed and you stand a... / Continue →

    As I'm sure you all heartbreakingly recall, Hostess went out of business, taking Twinkies with them. So what's an overweight glutton to do for their prepackaged sponge-cake fix? Enter Little Debbie's Cloud Cakes, a Twinkie knockoff ready to fill the market (and your mouth!) w... / Continue →

    My clothes are on the floor -- get it? Because he's made of hangers. Plus we just did the nasty so my pants are in a ball by the side of the bed and I'm laying here naked trying to smoke one of those 'It's a Boy' bubblegum cigars. Oh, now my lover's trying to eat my good bus... / Continue →

    This is a video of a handful of batsuit gliders flying around like lunatics narrowly avoiding death. I encourage you all to live 2013 the same way these nutjobs dive off mountains pretending they're flying squirrels: with gusto. Like a wise old man at the bar once told me, 'Y... / Continue →

    These are two dinosaur skeleton LEGO sets designed by Geekologie reader jazlecraz that are up for support on the LEGO CUUSO website (where if they reach 10,000 supporters LEGO will review the sets for manufacture). How LEGO hasn't already made sets like these is beyond me. Ki... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the moment before a big shark eats the smaller shark Redditor Mancubus1 was in the process of reeling in. I know that feeling, and it sucks. Because one time I had a mermaid on the line but then this merman came along and threw a trident at me and I was all,... / Continue →

    This is a video of a R/C plane that looks like Superman flying around over the beach. It's not a new concept, because we've seen several of those superhero planes before, this one just looks like Superman. "Who cares?" Not me, I'm been too busy prepping my apocalypse bunker.... / Continue →
