    I never owned a Tamagotchi keychain pet in the 90's because I'm not a girl and I was born with absolutely zero nurturing instincts. But maybe you did have one. And maybe now you want to rekindle that feeling of a new pet dying every day and piss away your phone battery at the... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Dildomaker from designer Francesco Morackini. It's like a giant pencil sharpener except it shapes things into peens. Definitely not the kind of thing you're gonna want to carry around in a purse. Truthfully, I'm not sure if a device like that would eve... / Continue →

    This is a video of a large wooden table that can expand into an even larger wooden table with a couple latch pulls and a twist. The Fletcher Capstan Table is made by Fletcher Burwell-Taylor Ltd and ranges in price from $50,000-$70,000. *spitting up tacos* Did that just say $... / Continue →

    ...is that an iPad next to the crapper? Because what good is a bathroom if it doesn't have some half-assed theme, this is a lightsaber plunger and Millennium Falcon toilet lid. Now some people are arguing whether or not the toilet lid is real or just Photoshopped, but those p... / Continue →

    In news that just makes me want to throw my hands up and tell the lord to take me now, scientists have created "zombie" cells in the laboratory that can outperform living ones. I don't even know what that means but I just taped a knife to a mop handle to fend off whatever hell... / Continue →

    Because everybody loves candy and Valentine's Day is right around the corner, here are some Eye of Sauron, Death Star, and galaxy lollipops (not to be confused with these planet ones) from Etsy seller designerlollipop. "Um, GW? Valentine's Day was yesterday." Oh really? Tha... / Continue →

    The Last Barfighter is an arcade game designed for Big Boss Brewing Company by the McKinney Ten Percent ad agency. It's a two-player fighting game that takes place in a biker bar (great place for fights btw) and rewards the winner with a cup full of beer. God I love playing g... / Continue →

    In apocalyptic news, a meteor exploded above Russia this morning, injuring hundreds, and sending at least one blogger thousands of miles away into the makeshift survival bunker he built in the hallway closet. I'm not gonna lie, there's little more than coats and a vacuum clea... / Continue →

    This is a picture created by Redditor boredboarder8 of the moon with a to-scale United States superimposed over it to give you a concept of its size. That is, if you can imagine how big the United States is. Which, given the fact you just poked yourself in the eye with a drin... / Continue →

    Because decorating means different things to different people, Star Wars fan Barry turned his entire 140-square foot living room into a diorama of the Battle of Hoth. There isn't any Photoshop in the pictures but the way, the explosions are actually lights Barry built. You re... / Continue →

    Wow, you folks are on THE WRONG DAMN SIDE OF THE FENCE. Remember when Filipino villagers captured that massive saltwater crocodile back in 2011? Then they named it Lolong and it went on display at an animal park in Bunawan, where the animal was captured? Well now the 21-foot... / Continue →

    Hell yeah, Mexican Coke! I'm gonna get one of you with lunch. 31-year old New Zealander Natasha Harris died in 2010, and this week the coroner released his report, citing Natasha's two gallon/day Coca-Cola habit as a contributing factor to her death. Wait -- TWO GALLONS A DA... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple Super Mario World levels (plus the overworld) recreated as a LEGO stop motion. The video quality isn't the best (or even second or third place), but the effort is impressive. Besides, since when did it take being the best to make it on Geekologie? ... / Continue →

    This is the Astronaut duvet cover from Snurk Bedding. It has an astronaut printed right in the middle of it. Plus it comes with a pillowcase with an astronaut helmet on it. Apparently they're designed for kids though so they're only gonna make them for teensy beds. Which is... / Continue →

    This is a video of marine biologist Roger Hanlon chasing an octopus when it gets all super sneaky and camouflages itself in some plant growth. Then Roger gets too close and it flicks on its BACK OFF ME warning colors before inking him and swimming away. Then there's a bunch m... / Continue →

    There are some insane sun pictures taken by greeting card designer/self-proclaimed space cowboy (interesting combo) Alan Friedman IN HIS OWN BACKYARD. In my backyard? *peeking out curtains* My roommate passed out in his boxers. Oh -- here comes company! (It's a raccoon) Us... / Continue →

    This is Pont de Singe, an installation art piece by Olivier Grossetête. It consists of a little bridge being suspended over a pond by helium balloons. It's not actually functional though, you'd wind up in the drink if you tried to cross it. Unless -- UNLESS -- you're a cat. ... / Continue →

    This is a shot from Ukrainian photographer Igor Ryabovr of an arachnid belonging to the Thomisidae family of crab spiders that has a scary screaming face on its back. Already terrified of spiders and can't handle that? Just pretend its the face of some cheap blow-up sex doll. ... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Darth Vader meditation chamber fireplace designed by Dave Delisle. It can be opened and closed to adjust the room temperature or kept closed when not in use. Of course it can't REALLY do anything because it's just a computer rendering and not a real thi... / Continue →

    Note: Video might be NSFW because I think I saw a blurry nip on my third go-through. The Intimacy 2.0 Dress from Daan Roosegaarde turns transparent when the wearer's heartbeat increases. So technically not just when you're aroused, but also when you're running to catch the bu... / Continue →

    Note: Contains spoilers because it's the entire movie told in 60-seconds. Don't be a dummy. This is a 60-second live-action short of Wreck-It Ralph. I never saw the movie so I have no idea if it's accurate. Also, I didn't watch this video because I didn't see the original a... / Continue →

    Totoro: everybody wishes they had a neighbor like him. My neighbors? Nobody would wish that upon themselves. A new couple moved in next door and they always like to have headboard-to-wall-banging sex right when I'm trying to go to bed. It's funny and sad though because it o... / Continue →

    Relax: none of those things on top are dongs (I think). This is the Chromodoris reticulata species of sea slug. While it's generally accepted that all sea slugs have unusual sex practices, this species is particularly interesting to scientists because it can shed, regrow, and... / Continue →

    This is a video from reader Beau in his record-breaking attempt to customize the most expensive Starbucks coffee drink (previously it was this $26.30 one set by another reader. Also, why is this a Geekologie trend? I didn't sign up for this) . The 52-ounce (which, for the re... / Continue →

    This is a shot of two kids who are (perhaps unknowingly) cosplaying as two Hobbits that are about to wind up on the dinner table of the orcs behind them. The shot is from a school in Spain where Carnival is in full effect right now (among other places) and where I should be ou... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garden hose that was left out in freezing temperatures overnight while coiled up. The next morning its owner uncoiled it, turned on the water, and SURPRISE: got a free pile of cylindrical ice cubes. That's weird because when I did the same thing growing u... / Continue →

    Want to attach LEGO minifigs to your coffee cup? Superglue them. Ooooor buy this $20 Build-On Brick Cup from ThinkGeek. The mug can be used to attach LEGO, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, and K'NEX Bricks but isn't an official product from any of those companies, it just HAP... / Continue →

    IMAGES REMOVED BY REQUEST OF OWNER Because why work for your own nut when you can steal somebody else's, these are six pictures captured by photographer Andre Morozov documenting the battle between two squirrels over the same peanut in Ontario's Royal Botanical Garden. Who wins... / Continue →

    Remember when Kia and DC Entertainment got together to customize a car for each member of the Justice League? Well here's the Optima Hybrid Superman one. It, uh, it's really something. I'm just having a hard time believing Superman would drive a Kia. "Of course he would." ... / Continue →

    A hacker in Montana (apparently they exist) is being blamed for compromising the local emergency alert system and broadcasting on KRTV and the CW that there have been reports of undead bodies rising from the grave. They weren't though, it was just a hoax. Or -- or -- DID it a... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a red-hot ball of nickel quickly melting its way through a block of ice from the same guy who brought us the red-hot nickel in a cup of water video. The sound effects aren't as rad (but are still pretty cool) in this one, but it's awesome to watch... / Continue →

    This is Tonik, a "human-faced" poodle/shih-tzu mix looking for adoption. Tonik was at a kill shelter in Kentucky before being rescued by the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group ('Homeward Bound' -- I cried) and is currently waiting to find his forever home (after being photogr... / Continue →

    This is a video of heavily decorated competitive eater Takeru Kobeyashi eating an entire 12" Domino's pizza in a minute at some bro-infested Superbowl party. Not bad, Takeru, but just a cheese pizza? I could have done with the same but with mushrooms and black olives. True s... / Continue →

    Yay, now let's fill the oceans with concrete and put a stop to this madness. I wrote about flying squid way back in 2010, but now they're back in the news after marine biologists have confirmed that the squids are actually flying (up to 30m/98-feet!) when they leap out of the ... / Continue →
  • February 11, 2013
    This is a video of the Ultra Ever-Dry hydrophobic (water repelling) and oleophobic (oil repelling) spray being tested on a variety of surfaces and with different liquids. I know the screencap I used sucks pretty hard, but the video is actually worth a view. That is, if you li... / Continue →

    Because there's a first time for everything, adult film actress Coco Brown (whose films I'm sure we're all familiar with even though we'll pretend we've never seen anything raunchier than the dry-humping they show on Cinemax) plans to be the first adult film star in space. Unf... / Continue →

    Milk up front, coffee in the rear. This is Trina. Trina and her husband are both addicted to buttchugging coffee. Hey Trina -- how do you like your coffee? "Up the butt." Cool, I'm probably gonna skip lunch today. Please read this entire quote: "I started the whole debac... / Continue →

    This is a series of animal sculptures created by Polish artist Marta Klonowska using pieces of shattered glass. I bet her hands look like she ran them through a paper shredder. Almost all of her sculptures are based on animals found in baroque and romantic paintings by such... / Continue →

    This is Chris P. Bacon, a rudely named piglet who was born without the use of his back legs. But now he cruises around like a pro thanks to the K'NEX wheelchair fashioned for him by Florida veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero. Think 'Charlotte's Web' but with zero spiders and anythin... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Hobbit Hole litter box designed by If Industries. Alternatively, get some Hobbit action figures and use it as a Hobbit Hole playset! You have to choose one or the other though, it can't be a litter box that doubles as an action figure playset, that's gr... / Continue →
