    This is a 6-oz flask that looks like a hairbrush so you can sneak booze into clubs and sporting events and not have to pay $16 for a drink. I can see it now: *hands bag to security at baseball game* "Excuse me sir, but why do you have a hairbrush in here?" For brushing my h... / Continue →

    This is a series of underwear for ladies (and dudes who wear lady's underwear) featuring hand-sewn animal faces and little ears. They're for sale by Etsy seller knickerocker, who also makes matching crop tops of the same animal faces, which I actually took the time to look thr... / Continue →

    If the internet were that lake, it would be empty except for a handful of rotting fish carcasses. This is a shot of a rainbow reflected in a lake taken by Jennifer Hannux of Northeast Kingdom Photography that makes it appear to be a full circle. When reached for comment, Doub... / Continue →

    1. Go to Youtube. 2. Pause any video (not an ad). 3. Click outside the video pane and type 1980. 4. Piss away the rest of the day till it's time to leave. 5. Holiday weekend. Thanks to ween23, who agrees Easter eggs are the sixth best kind of egg behind deviled, Cadbury Creme,... / Continue →

    This is a video of Tim Janus trying to chug 30 non-alcoholic O'Douls in an hour to see if he can break the legal blood-alcohol limit of 0.08. He fails. After (amazingly) managing to put down 28 beers (336 ounces -- more than 2.5 gallons!) he only blows a 0.02, then pukes hard... / Continue →

    'Welcome to Cobra Island' is a 12-track rap album set in the G.I. Joe universe produced by rhymer Wordburglar (not to be confused with the Hamburglar, who steals hamburgers, or the Turdburglar, who secretly collects dingleberries). You can download the album for free HERE. I ... / Continue →

    This is a series of Game of Thrones house sigil bow ties made by Etsy seller 2Marys. They come in Lannister, Baratheon, Stark, Targaryen and Arryn styles. Which would you wear? I can honestly say I don't think I've ever worn a bow tie. Well that's not entire true, I'm pret... / Continue →

    This is a video of ballerina Amélie Ségarra destroying a piano by dancing on top of it in knife-toed ballerina shoes. Although it's a lot less what you'd think of as dancing and a lot more what you'd think of as angry stabbing and screaming. I'm no therapist, but I sensed som... / Continue →

    This is a series of Vine videos of feline internet stars Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat meeting each other for the first time at the Internet Cat Video Festival in Minneapolis. They really do make a perfectly ridiculous looking match. Wait -- Internet Cat Video Festival? I don't eve... / Continue →

    This is a video from Rated RR of beer kegs being exploded with detonating cord. I'm not gonna lie, it was a little hard to watch all that beer get wasted. Speaking of -- somebody should develop an app that connects people at the bar who can't finish their beer with people wh... / Continue →

    Free to a good home: Salad remnants -- a little lettuce, four cherry tomatoes (all unpierced!), four olives, one partial crouton, grated cheese and ranch. Sorry, but I ate all the crackers. Leftoverswap is an app in development designed to connect people with leftovers with p... / Continue →

    Of all the sets that pass through the LEGO Cuuso website for potential manufacture, I feel like this Jurassic Park one actually stands a decent chance of seeing the light of day (links to voting page). Designed by user senteosan, the set features the iconic Jurassic Park gates... / Continue →

    This is a set of Han Solo frozen in carbonite refrigerator/freezer doors. They're not real though, they've just been Photoshopped, making them barely worth posting but I'm doing it anyways because 1. the internet is drying up in anticipation of the holiday weekend and 2. someb... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Washington documenting a successful human-to-human mind control experiment. It went like this: Rajesh Rao sat in one lab playing a mind-controlled video game using a special headset. Meanwhile, in another lab, Andrea Stocco was wearing a... / Continue →

    This is a shot from a Google Street View car (links to actual Google map) traveling the New Jersey Turnpike that happened to capture a space shuttle flyover in April 2012. Seeing it sent me on a Google Street View treasure hunt to see what other oddities I could spot in the sk... / Continue →

    Because nobody's ever happy with the way things are now, scientists are hard at work trying to create new elements. God willing, these new elements will provide the key to powering the jetpacks of tomorrow so we can all say goodbye to land-based travel and say hello to crashin... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of Mario (who can't mange to keep his hat on) and Luigi performing parkour stunts in real life. It also has some special effects like fireball shooting, turtle stomping, and brick breaking. I know themed parkour videos are getting to be a dime a doz... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap is going to do this beast-ninja justice, just watch the video. This is a video from Russia of a cook whipping up what appear to be some sort of shawarma wrap, all set to the Mortal Kombat theme (which is actually playing in the restaurant/roller skating rink... / Continue →

    I came for an oil-change. *wink* Because the sex boxes they installed in 2010 were too drab, the city of Zurich has installed new sex boxes for people to have sex with prostitutes in, without the fear of children on family road trips watching from the back of their parents' st... / Continue →

    As a sign that God is clearly ready to abandon us to focus his efforts on another inhabited planet (I'm assuming he was smart enough to not put all his eggs in one basket), the Oxford Online Dictionary has announced its latest 65 additions to this embarrassment we call the Engl... / Continue →

    This is a video of World Cup 3, a horse racing video game from Japan. A very UNUSUAL horse racing game from Japan. I didn't really understand it, but that doesn't mean I don't really love it. "If you love it so much then why don't you marry it?" I already asked. "And -- what d... / Continue →

    I'm going to be honest, I didn't know there were OLD glue spitting velvet worms we'd already discovered. And you know what? The world seemed like a better place when I didn't. Now the storm clouds are rolling in and it looks like I'm in for 40 days and 40 nights of rain. "I... / Continue →

    This is a series of Monty Python And The Holy Grail LEGO sets made by Flickr user Rifiröfi. If they were real I would buy them all. But they're not real, so instead I'm going to talk about how I'm going to make them myself, then never actually get around to doing it. It's th... / Continue →

    This is the United States of P0rnhub searches (previously: P0rnMD's data, including different countries). It shows the most popular search term from each state according to the streaming site's data (links to all the data including the top three search terms per state). As yo... / Continue →

    This is a video from (where else?) Japan of a guy in a super-realistic looking raptor costume chasing an unsuspecting victim in an office building. The dude seems genuinely concerned that he's being chased by a dinosaur. And can you blame him? Of course you can, dinosaurs we... / Continue →

    Note: This is only a small portion of the graphic, hit the jump to see the whole mile-long thing. This is an infographic featuring 50 things that somebody believes every geek should know. That person is obviously not me, because I don't give a shit if you know all or none of ... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap is gonna do this guy justice, so just hit the jump and skip around the video, but prepare to have your mind BLOWN OFF THE SHELF, then watch the second video showing the routine slowed down 2x and prepare to have your brain SHATTERED INTO A MILLION PIECES AND ... / Continue →

    Because rich people are running out of things to spend their money on, a company in Japan is offering a toilet-paper-of-the-month style subscription service that delivers $13/roll ass paper to your door every month. I think we can all agree when I say thank goodness there's no... / Continue →

    I apologize for the poor quality pictures but I didn't make them so it's really not my fault I'm just taking the blame because I have BROAD SHOULDERS and could carry the whole world on them provided it was the size and weight of a beach ball. This is a small series of five dif... / Continue →

    Because NASA is getting out of the launching people into space business, the agency has announced it's auctioning off three of its previously used shuttle launchpads. And you and I are going to buy one and turn it into a space themed restaurant. And by restaurant I obviously ... / Continue →

    This is a series of women dressed as internet browsers (previously: fashion sketches of women dressed as internet browsers). Which is your favorite? I like Opera. And I'm not just saying that because I would constantly try to throw things through her hair hoop, but I would a... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Mario Kart's Rainbow Road spotted in real life. It looks way less spacey than I would have imagined. It's actually disappointing. It's real though, and located on Interstate 86 in Idaho. Weird, I never though the exit to Rainbow Road would be in Idaho. Of... / Continue →

    So many more cat videos to watch. NEED ENERGY. Caffeine: it's a drug. It's a drug and people want it inside them. Most people drink coffee or energy drinks, some people use caffeinated soap in the shower, and other people wake and bake because they don't give a shit about c... / Continue →

    This is a news report from the BBC about scientists tracking snail movement using LEDs taped to their shells. The scientists discovered snails were able to move, on average, about one meter an hour, which I feel like is information we probably already knew. I suspect there wa... / Continue →
