    This is a video of some happy-go-lucky forest spirit playing Zelda's Lost Woods theme on an accordion while riding a unicycle through the woods. Just like the title says. If you read the title and thought this was going to be a gallery of hot cosplay chicks, congratulations, ... / Continue →

    This is a video of two humpback whales off the coast of central California coming up to feed when they almost swallow two divers. Could you imagine being swallowed by a whale? Man, that would certainly be a story to tell IN THE BIBLE. Back me up, Jonah! "I spent three days ... / Continue →

    Because Santa has been looking for an excuse to buy a boat, the North Pole is melting and now a shallow lake sitting atop a sheet of ice. No word if it's deep enough to drown a naughty elf in, but I bet I could do it. *holding underwater* MY BIKE'S WHEEL CAME OFF, YOU LITTLE... / Continue →

    Picture related: frozen light. Zing! NOW COME TEAR MY HEART OUT NO MERCY STYLE. German researchers have successfully "frozen" light for an entire minute, which apparently means great things for the future of "light-based quantum memory" and other things my brain refuses to b... / Continue →

    The Norwegian town of Rjukan sits in a deep valley that receives no direct sunlight for 82 days of the year. So what did the town do? Pack up their bags, burn the village to ashes, and move somewhere else? NOPE. Installed three 300-foot mirrors to aim a single beam of light... / Continue →

    This is a series of animated beer labels made by Trevor Carmick of Beer Labels In Motion. Mesmerizing, aren't they? If actual beer bottles did this I wouldn't even want to talk to other people while I drank, just stare at my bottle. Jk jk, I already hate talking to other peo... / Continue →

    This is the $26 'Splash Red Chopping Board'. It looks like a cartoon pool of blood. Or maybe a paint spill. I don't know, what do you see? Dripping tomatoes? "THE BLOOD OF MY ENEMIES RUNNING OVER THE CHOPPING BLOCK." Okay this was actually a Rorschach test and you failed,... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it already (and because it's Friday -- YES, YES, YES!), this is a video of a traffic reporter at local news station ABC 12 drawing a penis on the monitor during her segment. Just look at that smile -- you can tell she's proud of her handiwork. And ... / Continue →

    In 'Great, now if my girlfriend reads this I'm going to have to learn how to hack Sonic the Hedgehog or risk getting turned down' news, Redditor Equinn0xX hacked a Contra cartridge to propose to his girlfriend. Curse you, Game Genie! This is how I did it. In short, I bought C... / Continue →

    This is The Pixel Painter, a cute/sweet/heartwarming documentary about Hal Lasko, a 97-year old retired graphic designer who's partially blind and spends up to 10-hours a day creating beautiful art pieces in Microsoft Paint, pixel by pixel. When I retire? I'm not creating an... / Continue →

    These are the $25 Building Block Slippers available from ThinkGeek. Why aren't they LEGO slippers? Because why pay for licensing rights when you don't have to? That's like throwing money into the fountain at the mall. None of my wishes are gonna come true, and afterwards I w... / Continue →

    This is an infographic about intelligence and alcohol consumption. Basically smarter people are more likely to drink more. Unless you're me, in which case you're more likely to be dumb and drink more. I can can barely tie my own shoes but I can make a case of beer disappear l... / Continue →

    This is the $65 WorkEZ Executive laptop desk. WorkEZ, really? People are still naming shit like that? It can function as a traditional laptop mount, a TV dinner style stand, AND EVEN BE USED UPSIDE DOWN. I can't imagine typing upside down being comfortable though. No, I'm ... / Continue →

    I actually posted a video of RHex back in 2008 (last video on the page), and apparently he's been quietly practicing his parkour for the last five years because now he's back and jumpier than ever. He moves like one of the freaky deaky insects out of my dreams. And not one of... / Continue →

    The last time we checked in with Australian billionaire Clive Palmer his dinosaur park sounded like a pipe dream (albeit the sexiest pipe dream), but now the regional council has voted and the park is currently under construction. Unfortunately, there was no mention of the act... / Continue →

    This is the half-scale replica of Vader's TIE Fighter built by a group of Germans for Star Wars Celebration Europe. It took over 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build. And can you think of any better use for 1,000 man hours and $20,000? Because I can't. You think with 2,000 ... / Continue →

    In solid decision making news, a man in Australia was recently caught driving with a set of vice grips instead of a steering wheel. Where did the steering wheel go? No clue, but after 286,000 kilometers pieces are bound to start falling off. Police in Australia said that a w... / Continue →

    This is the result of a £28 (~$43) Happy Ride Vibrating Bike Seat (links to NSFW adult toy website). The seat cover vibrates against your privates while you ride, making exercising way more enjoyable. You know, it's a shame God didn't make exercising feel better on your priv... / Continue →

    This is a video of various well-dressed cosplayers spotted at Comic-Con set to some song called 'One In A Million'. Volume is optional, but not encouraged. I just took my last pain pills then fell down the stairs trying to catch the ice cream man before he passed my street. ... / Continue →

    This is a line of wetsuits that have been designed to confuse a shark's vision so they won't take a bite out of you. The first two are designed to make a diver 'invisible' to sharks in the water, while the third was designed to make you look like an old-timey prison inmate and... / Continue →

    This is a shot of earth as seen from the Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn some 900-million miles away. OH SHIT IS THAT AN ALIEN SPACESHIP POINTED AT US? Earth rarely shows up in Cassini's images because from the spacecraft's perspective, our planet is usually too close to... / Continue →

    Some bro in Germany sealed his BMW to make the interior waterproof then filled it up with what appears to be swamp water and drove his buddies around in the thing until he got pulled over for driving a pool. Did I mention they'd been drinking? I'm as shocked as you are. Per ... / Continue →

    I am alive and managed to keep my arm but I am on drugs and they make it hard to write to the point where most of the time I'm just staring at the pores on the back of my hands, so bear with me. This is the $100 Sharkini, a bathing suit that makes it look like you're being att... / Continue →

    I got bit by some gnarly spider last night and the skin is starting to deteriorate so I'm heading to the doctor, presumably to have my arm chopped off. In the meantime, here's a link to Norman Chan's annual Comic-Con gallery, with a whopping 864 images. So go check that out a... / Continue →
