    This is a newly discovered species of slug found on Mount Kaputar in New South Wales, Australia. I thought it looked like a melted AirHead. Or a unicorn turd. Unfortunately, scientists weren't brave enough to poke it with a stick to see if rainbows and happiness shot out so ... / Continue →

    In potentially exciting cloning news, scientists have successfully drawn liquid wooly mammoth blood from a carcass found in Siberia. Fingers crossed by this time next year they're inexpensive enough to hire for a kid's birthday party. About 15,000 years ago, an old female woo... / Continue →

    This is the custom Minecraft themed lawn chair built by Redditor kaptaingunner to be sold at a fundraising event. What kind of fundraiser? No clue, but I just bid a million dollars on it, so hopefully not one for the advancement of robot technology. In my mind it was cancer ... / Continue →

    These are the Bioshock Infinite bird and birdcage pendant replicas sold by Etsy seller leagueofshadows. You can get one or the other for $13. You have to choose though, you can't get both. Just kidding, you can, but in the game you have to choose, so I feel like you should h... / Continue →

    This is a video of Breon Nagy proposing to his girlfriend atop Leeds Castle while wearing Google Glass. It's just the right amount of sweet and sappy to make you get a little choked up when she says, "Of course I will!" *clearing throat* I mean, not that I did personally or ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robot that can anticipate human action by examining changes in its environment and using an algorithm to determine what a human needs next, and acting accordingly. The screencap above though is from when the robot is NOT anticipating human action because i... / Continue →

    This is the cowboy hat made out of an old toaster and pizza pan by DeviantARTist Blue Fox. If you went back in time and wore it in the old west, everybody would think you came from the future. And they would be right, because that's exactly what you just did. Thanks to chi... / Continue →

    This is a shot of some dude's USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D knuckle tattoos. For those of you who can't see and are listening to this via text-to-speech program, the ship was executed in a style that can only be described as 'kinda prison tatt-y'. Hit the jump for four more BON... / Continue →

    This is a 20-minute cut of video games being played in over 70 different movies. Honestly, I skipped around and probably watched about three minutes in total. Think you can beat my high score? Do you like how I tied in the whole video game theme? PRO SKILLS. Aliens don't c... / Continue →

    This is the 15,000-piece, full-scale Terminator T-800 LEGO model built by Martin Latta. I would jump kick that jerk to pieces. He reminds me of one of those anatomical skeletons they used to have in biology class that always I'd fake-hump every time the teacher left the room.... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garbage truck eating an entire Pontiac Grand Am. Of course the car only has donut tires and you can see the gas tank has been removed, so I'm not sure just how 'entire' it actually is. I've got the feeling it didn't have an engine either. Just a hunch. ... / Continue →

    This is the rat/lizard alien that the Mars rover Curiosity recently spotted on the red planet. FULL DISCLOSURE: just a rock. Now the conspiracy theorists would have you believe the government is just trying to cover up the Martian discovery, but those are the same people who ... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap could ever do the dynamic beauty of this woman justice, you just have to watch the video to understand but PROTIP: skip around, her camel toe will try to suck you in a like a tractor beam. This is a video of fitness instructor Joanna Rohrback demonstrating s... / Continue →

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU ALL BOUGHT HIM LAP DANCES?! Note: Slightly larger version HERE. Because cleverly staged wedding photos are all the rage right now, here's a shot of a bride force-choking all her husband's groomsmen taken by artist and photographer Ryan S Burkett. It serv... / Continue →

    This is a decent sized series of Game of Thrones characters reimagined as Magic: The Gathering cards by tumblr-er JermTube. Man, I remember playing Magic in high school. Whenever I'd start losing I'd put the dice in my mouth and swish them around until my opponent forfeited. ... / Continue →

    This is the $35 Tactical BBQ Apron available from ThinkGeek. It looks like riot gear and has all sorts of pouches and straps to hold your barbeque tools. It won't stop a bullet though, so you better not f*** up my burger. You know what happened to the last guy who overcooked... / Continue →

    This is the Mutator, a small plug you insert into your iPhone's headphone jack that, with a twist, completely silences your phone from audio stemming from games, videos, apps, alarms, Siri, etc. etc. You know, because the little switch on the side doesn't work for that (althou... / Continue →

    Full disclosure: I would not be upset if I opened that treasure chest. This is the Pirate Pancake Griddle, it makes flapjacks with a skull & crossbones on them. It's still a Kickstater project but has already reached its funding goal so you can definitely get one for $93 if y... / Continue →

    Keep in mind 'cute' is subjective. Now that I think about it I guess 'chubby' is too but nine out of ten doctors have agreed I'm full-blown obese. This is one of two new species of recently described mini-spiders from China. How small is a mini-spider? Well the little guy a... / Continue →

    This is the Cell Phone Holder Party Cup available from Perpetual Kid for $9. It's a cup with a silly straw that's shaped to hold a touchscreen smartphone. I can't tell if your drink actually passes through the straw around the phone, but it would be a shame if it didn't. It'... / Continue →

    NOTE: Larger version HERE in case you want to print it out and frame it and put it on your desk and pretend like you know these people. This is the best wedding party photo of all time, taken by photographer Quinn Miller. Granted the t-rex had to be Photoshopped in, but it's ... / Continue →

    This is a CG commercial for the $17,000 Linux-powered TrackingPoint XS1 scope, an auto-aiming system that tells you when you'll be successful or not at putting a hole in something. At first I thought it was weird they decided to use those video gamey computer graphics for the ... / Continue →

    This is the JC Penney billboard for a teapot (because teapots are a great choice for billboard advertisements) that, when blurred, kinda sorta looks like a characture Hitler. Of course, if you squint your eyes and shake your head hard enough, you can get anything to look like ... / Continue →

    This is 'The Box', a $2,500 personal gaming/playing with yourself chamber for sale on Craigslist in Ohio. Allegedly it has surround sound, air conditioning/heat plus a 'one-of-a-kind military theme'. You might see other terrifying video game boxes with military themes, but no... / Continue →

    This is the earth cake with different colored interior layers baked inside each other by Rhiannon of Baking Adventures. And for the record, I lied in the title, the cake isn't spherical, it's a hemisphere. That was just me being sensational, and sensation, as I'm sure you're ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Smarter Every Day showing how you can get leafcutter ants to carry little signs for you by peeing on them. The urine, which contains salt, make the little bits of paper desirable for the ants to drag back to their colony and use to grow their fungal food. ... / Continue →

    This is Sun Jifa, a Chinese farmer who lost both his hands and, forced to make the decision between saving for expensive prosthetics from the hospital or using barely functioning cheap ones, decided to make his own. Now he's building and selling them to other amputees at a ten... / Continue →

    This is the $16 'Pistol Style Protective Plastic Case' made for the iPhone 5. It looks like a copper gun. Kind of. Mostly it just looks ridiculous. I must have one. Plus if we order 3 or more we can get them down to $14.50 apiece. It's the kind of iPhone case I imagine t... / Continue →

    This is a video of actor and musician Brad Carter playing the guitar while undergoing brain surgery to repair damage done by Parkinson's. Sorry but brain stuff makes me queasy and I feel myself getting a little lightheaded so I'm going to copy/paste something now. Hopefully n... / Continue →

    Universal Studios has just announced the addition of a Simpson's themed area to its Orlando-based park, complete with real Springfield locations like Duff Brewery Moe's Tavern (both serving real Duff beer), Krusty Burger, Kwik-E-Mart, Cletus' Chicken Shack and The Android's Dun... / Continue →

    I posted about Monkey Lights back in 2009, and now the company's back with a NEW AND IMPROVED version with cooler animations. I want to be able to spell out words with them, and I want the front wheel to say, 'IF YOU CAN READ THIS' and the back one, 'DIE SCUMBAG!'. The new Mo... / Continue →

    You know what your dining room table is missing? Hopefully not a leg. Hopefully it's just missing some $15 - $18 Lord of the Rings salt and pepper shakers. Thankfully, our prayers have been answered. Well maybe yours at least, I prayed for a missile launcher for an arm and ... / Continue →

    Everybody have a nice holiday weekend? Good. These are the $38 Green Grass Flip Flops from Firebox. They're flip flops with fake grass soles so you can get that 'walking on grass' feel all the time, even at the office. Your workplace frown on flip flops? Find a new job, pr... / Continue →
