    Because it's Friday and we all started drinking at lunch (we did all start drinking at lunch, right?), here's an Angry Birds wrecking ball spotted in the wild by Redditor bmorschwack. I don't know about you, but come Monday morning I'm gonna be praying I see that thing outside... / Continue →

    This is the 'Autobot E' USS Enterprise Transformer hacked together from existing toy parts by reader and DeviantARTist Unicron9 (who knows how to write a hell of an email by the way). It looks like the Enterprise, but can also transform into "a majestic alien look with a mix o... / Continue →

    This is a video of French Youtuber ioduremetallique demonstrating the remote controlled robot he built to steal soda cans out of vending machines. The design is pretty impressive and all, but I question dude's morals. Also, the cost vs. benefit analysis of building a robot to... / Continue →

    This is a series of homemade Star Wars themed sex toys available from Etsy seller Geek Kink. Mostly whips, canes and paddles with various Star Wars emblems on them. Star Wars not your thing? No worries, because they also have lines of Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, and video game... / Continue →

    In promising unemployment news, the ancient ruins of Stonehenge are seeking their first general manager. Job responsibilities presumably include sleeping in late, making sure nothing has fallen over, and leaving work early. What is Stonehenge anyways? I always imagined they'... / Continue →

    In further proof I picked the wrong f***ing major, the University of Victoria in British Columbia is offering a 'Science of Batman' course that explores the human body and it's adaptability though the life of Batman. No word if losing both parents at a young age is a prerequis... / Continue →

    These is a group of human wrecks cosplaying as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, presumably by wrapping themselves in -- what the hell is that, colored packing tape? I'm pretty sure Michelangelo is a dude, I think the middle two are chicks, and Donatello is a tossup. Knowing ... / Continue →

    This is the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (the 42), Lord of the Rings (One Ring script) and Dr. Who (Time Lord seal) tattoo on the back of Redditor s_jove. I like the call it 'The Doctor's Guide to Middle Earth' tattoo, but that's just me and I'm great at coming up with name... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Stan Lee posing with a bunch of lady cosplayers at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con and the shadow of Thor's hammer making it look like he pissed himself. He didn't though, so it's all good. Or -- OR -- is Thor just covering for him? I'm joking, ther... / Continue →

    This is a small series of Batman villains as they might have appeared in 1940's mugshots, all digitally painted by Canadian artist Jason Mark. I swear, people were such sharp dressers back in the day. Like, guys didn't leave the house without a suit on. Now? Now it's all sw... / Continue →

    Seen here practicing for the circus, Richie Trimble provides us with a first-person view of what it's like to ride his nearly 15-foot "Stoopidtall Bike'. The bike measures 12-feet to the pedals and 14.5 to the seat. That's high. Almost as high as you'd have to be to think a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Chris Weir giving us a tour of the Batcave themed theater he spent $150,000 and two and half years building in his basement. You might not wish he was your dad, but you at least wish he was your best friend's dad. Naturally, he has about 2,000 comic books, ... / Continue →

    Remember that picture of the TARDIS refrigerator with no other information? Well it turns out it was made by artist/engineers B.E.Johnson & Joy Alyssa Day and they'll make one to fit your fridge for the low, low price of $185. Plus it doesn't come with the Christmas lights in... / Continue →

    This is the music video for DJ A-Trak & Tommy Trash's song 'Tuna Melt', featuring an impressive 3:30 domino maze/Rube Goldberg machine, although it was clearly shot in sections. Still, I liked it. A LOT. More than I like my roommate, which is little to none and I actually da... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole graphic, you have to hit the jump to see the whole thing because it's long like you are and would totally destroy the front page with its raw sexual energy. This is an infographic guesstimating the cost of being Iron Man in the Iron Man 3 movie. Is ... / Continue →

    And it's perfect for gaming! Homme Mystere (literally 'mystery man' and not 'mysterious homo' like you imagined) is a line of lingerie designed specifically for dudes. Because, you know, sometimes a man likes to feel sexy too. Why should women get all the lace and frills and... / Continue →

    Note: The Geekologie Writer does not condone cheating (on tests OR lovers) and managed to make his way through high school, undergrad, and a master's degree and he's dumb as shit so come on, if he can do it, so can you. Sure I failed the hell out of some tests, but you know wh... / Continue →

    These are Invisiplug wood grain surge protectors. They're designed to blend into wood grain flooring and not be such an eyesore. They make the perfect ironic statement for that hipster living room that's all tile. Still, even if you do have wood grain floors that actually ma... / Continue →

    And I would've done the same. NASA, best known for crumpling up my astronaut application and crushing a young man's dreams, apparently took the time out of the Spirit and Opportunity rovers' busy schedules of searching for alien life and taking pictures of dust to draw this gi... / Continue →

    This is the impressive 4-ton steampunk train barbeque grill built by Ryazan Deulino. The barbeque features three separate cooking bays and a brick-lined furnace (all of which make great hide & seek hiding places). Man, this thing looks perfect for grilling up some of my famou... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery (plus video) of the Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Fists Terminator Captain Tancred costume created by Daniel Høgh and Justina Šniukštaitė of Roses and Boltshells, their cosplay prop manufacturing business. The outfit is predominately foam, so the wearer is ... / Continue →

    Triangle Tree is releasing spicy, sweet and plain Edible Spoons, a line of dog treat looking spoons that can be eaten after your meal, preventing the earth-unfriendly disposal of plastic spoons like I just don't put them in the dishwasher and reuse them. Haha, what do you mea... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a Swiss Airbus A340 landing at the Zurich airport in heavy fog. Which, as far as fog goes, is probably airplane pilots' least favorite kind. Me? It's my favorite because it makes sneaking around the neighborhood playing ninja assassin easier. Thanks... / Continue →

    This is the ceiling fan modded into a much sweeter HELICOPTER ceiling fan by Redditor ScumbagJanitorGuy for his son. It just goes to show, you can't always judge a book by their username. Scumbag later plans on painting the ceiling to look like the sky. Awesome! The only th... / Continue →

    These are Daniel Resnic's 'Origami' condom designs. Despite what the name might imply, the condoms are actually latex-free silicon, which is a good thing because no folded paper crane on your pecker is gonna prevent your girlfriend from getting pregnant. The Origami Male Co... / Continue →

    This is a box of Aperture Laboratories brand cake mix. Apparently it comes with everything you need to make the cake in the picture, except the cherries. Of course a bunch of people on Amazon gave it 1-star for being a lie (LOLOL -- you guys!), so who knows. I think it's just... / Continue →

    This is the 'Cobra' iPhone 4 and 5 speaker booster made by Vinnie Veen (although it may be a take on the trumpet iPhone speakers made by Christopher Lock of HeartlessMachine. I don't know -- sometimes people come up with the same idea without it necessarily being ripped off. ... / Continue →

    This is the ninja-shaped leaf that Redditor freeaccount found out in the wild, along with an artist's rendition of what the ninja would look like in real life. Now before you go running off to the comments to leave a 'Wow, must be a slow news day', I want you to think about th... / Continue →

    My Knitted Boyfriend is a knitted bodysuit by Noortje de Keijzer that looks like a cartoon man that can be worn by a real man. Don't have a real man? Stuff this one full of pillows and socks and commit to the sadness. Presumably the bodysuit was made for women that love ever... / Continue →

    This is a video of Redditor Aussie50 tossing some piece of heavy machinery into a front-load washer and watching it shake itself to pieces on the spin cycle. It will never top the anthropomorphic dryer eating a brick video, although this one is pretty action-packed. It's a sh... / Continue →

    Condom giant Durex has developed underwear (and a bra) that will vibrate when your partner rubs their finger around on an iPhone app. They're called Fundawear, and were designed to allow lovers to 'touch each other over the internet'. For the record, I don't want anybody touc... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Wisconsin of the Game of Thrones theme being performed by Lyle Anderson on the campus's bell tower carillon (which includes footage of Lyle actually playing them). It's beautiful. Something about church bells ringing always gets me. Mak... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature is completely out of her f***ing mind, decapitated rattlesnakes can still strike and cripple/kill their enemies up to an hour after being decapitated. They can't fly though, so now would be a good time to start saving for that jetpack. Rattlesnake venom ... / Continue →
