    This is the Barbie doll (right) artist Nicholay Lamm created using 3-D imaging and the Center for Disease Control's average measurements for a 19-year old woman in the United States. As you can see, she's not as tall or skinny as the real Barbie. Personally, I think she looks... / Continue →

    This is a video of serious medical marijuana patients 'Bud Master' and 'Bud Jesus' of The Dank City reviewing Kandy Care's THC infused cotton candy. Or maybe the video was just to enforce stoner stereotypes, it was hard to tell. Hit the jump for a closeup of the product and... / Continue →

    This is the Doctor Who themed engagement shoot for Josh and Laurie of Greenville, South Carolina. It was shot by Davey Morgan Photography, and the TARDIS was built by Laurie's dad after Josh, who is such of a big fan of the 10th Doctor (David Tennant), decided he wanted to dre... / Continue →

    This is a video of an alleged streaker breaking onto the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course set up on the Las Vegas strip and successfully running through most of it before being tackled by security. Now I'm not saying the show was in on this, but it totally was. I'm not ... / Continue →

    This is the $150 Tron: Legacy inspired bicycling skinsuit available from Podium Racing (of Pee-wee Herman skinsuit fame). Unfortunately, it doesn't actually light up, so unless you invest in some of those flashing bike lights you're going to look like a ninja pedaling around a... / Continue →

    FOX commissioned a campaign for 'Dexter' from creative agency Cakehead Loves (of Resident Evil butcher shop fame) to celebrate the show's last season, which starts airing this Sunday. So Cakehead Loves got together with Annabel of the Conjurer's Kitchen (and realistic chocolat... / Continue →

    Because some people are willing to stop at nothing to sneak a couple shots into a concert, SmuggleYourBooze is selling these tampon flasks. They're basically 1-shot vials that you slide into the provided sleeves so they pass as tampons when security is rooting through your pur... / Continue →

    This is a video of parkour pro James Kingston leaping from rooftop to rooftop and performing a bunch of other death-defying feats of running and jumping around Cambridge, UK. I got a little sweaty watching it, and not just because it's hot as hell here and my A/C stopped worki... / Continue →

    Universal Orlando has announced they're building a 'Cabin In The Woods' themed attraction for its annual Halloween Horror Nights. I think you should take me. Then buy me a cotton candy afterwards and pet my head and tell me it was all fake so I'll stop crying. We are buildin... / Continue →

    These are the conceptual 3-D printed 'Cortex' casts envisioned by designer Jake Evill (not to be confused with the Jake EVIL, who wants to see us all dead). They're awesome because if you break your arm a frienemy can't draw a penis on your cast. I've had to be casted up thre... / Continue →

    A computer technician in China has been arrested after unknowingly projecting a banned pornographic movie onto a giant video billboard near the Jilin railway station while he was supposed to be fixing the laptop. AHAHHAHAHHAHHAHA, I would have done the exact same thing. Xin J... / Continue →

    This is the Mario riding Yoshi balloon costume posted by Redditor Psypher108. Is that him wearing it? No clue. Is it one of his friends? Not sure. Did he just find the picture on the internet? More than likely. And speaking of finding pictures on the internet -- have you... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of Youtuber AmputeeOT fashioning herself a prosthetic leg out of LEGO bricks. It's a LEGO leg! It really got me thinking -- it's amazing how most of us go out of my way to AVOID stepping on LEGO bricks, and here she is PURPOSEFULLY doing it. That r... / Continue →

    An unmanned Russian Proton-M heavy rocket carrying three GPS related satellites exploded shortly after launch this morning and crashed in a giant ball of hellfire nearby. The whole thing was caught on a live Russian news feed (video after the jump), where things seemed to go s... / Continue →

    Because the 4th of July is right around the corner (literally, I saw it poke its head around and scream 'FREEDOM AND BEER!') here's a video of a guy shooting off a bunch of different fireworks in slow motion 'bullet time' while the camera pans around him. Man, I love fireworks... / Continue →

    This is a replica of 'The Homer', the car Homer designed in The Simpsons after being given a job at Powell Motors by his half brother Herb in the season two episode 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou?'. This real-life version was built by Porcubimmer Motors, and while not an exact rep... / Continue →

    This is a video of pro golfer Rory McIlroy doing battle against the Golf Laboratory Computer Controlled Hitting Machine in an accuracy challenge. The robot is a surprisingly good golfer. Plus insulter, which made it pretty obvious the thing was actually getting its lines from... / Continue →

    This is a video of a brick oven full of 2,538 ping pong balls being lit. The flame burns so hard and tall because ping pong balls are made out of celluloid, a highly flammable plastic. Mmmm, I love the smell of burning ping pong balls in the morning. Smells like...burning pl... / Continue →

    ThinkGeek is selling these $20 ceramic zombie garden gnomes and zombie fighters. They made the perfect temporary addition to your lawn before some neighborhood teens steal them and smash them in the street a block away. Personally, I'm just going to sign up for a pottery clas... / Continue →

    Möbius strips: hands down my second favorite kind of strip behind stripteases. This is a video of Andy from The Royal Institution of Great Britain showing off a levitating superconductor riding a Möbius strip made out of 2,000 individual magnets. Whey the hell we can't have ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE, because art was meant to be enjoyed and not just squinted at. This is the Michalangelo's 'The Creation of Adam' (part of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling fresco) reimagined by DeviantARTist PurpleKecleon with 'Adventure Time' characters (which is appropr... / Continue →

    A group of kids in Australia knocked over this 100,000-piece LEGO Erickson Air-Crane built by Ryan McNaught. The $25,000 copter was on display at the Cairns Central Shopping Centre when the little jerks pushed it off its display table. Thankfully, authorities have already ide... / Continue →

    This is a series of Star Wars inspired booze bottles posted by Redditor ElderCunningham. I think we can all agree they're just the thing the liquor industry needs to better market their products to children. Or is that frowned upon? Well I'd drink them. No lie, a couple wee... / Continue →
