    Press the bulge. Apparently these little rubber underwears from Bandai are all the rage for smartphone owners in Japan because Japan is Japan and I'm tired of trying to understand. They come in a variety of styles and are sold randomly in plastic capsule machines for 200 yen ... / Continue →

    This is a small series of superhero logos reimagined as neon signs by DeviantARTist 3ftdeep (which, for the record, is way too shallow to bury a body). They're not real. I don't see any reason why they couldn't be made real, but these are just renderings. My feelings for you... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Not on your lunch break. Seen here looking how I felt after Thanksgiving, a dead sperm whale's stomach explodes as some poor bastard pokes it with a knife. The explosion was caused by the build-up of gases in the stomach after the whale died (of natural causes). Can ... / Continue →
