    This is a short video of the new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer cut into a Parks and Rec opening sequence (complete with theme song). I like the Parks and Rec theme song, it makes me smile. Everything else? Everything else makes me scowl or vomit. I have a bad attitude. J... / Continue →

    This is a viral ad for DHL shipping that involves pranking the other major shipping companies by using them to send giant chilled boxes with heat-reactive printing that reads 'DHL IS FASTER' when warm. Sure, clever prank, but still -- poor sportsmanship. I didn't know the shi... / Continue →

    Remember the Razor Crazy Cart we were all stoked about until we heard the weight limit is 140-pounds and I'm at least 60-pounds (that I'm willing to admit) over that? Well now Razor is releasing an XL version that is strong enough to support weights up to 250-lbs at breakneck ... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Check your volume, sometimes it sounds like a robot yelling as it gets stabbed. This is a video of a dot matrix printer playing 'Eye of The Tiger'. In my opinion, 'Eye of the Tiger' is one of the best pump-up songs of all time. Also, 'You're the Best' from the Karate... / Continue →

    This is the Robocup coffee mug available from Firebox ($22). Obviously it's the original Robocop and not the reboot version because the new one looks like Batman f***ed one of the Daft Punk robots. How is the reboot anyways? Anybody seen it? I was going to but ended up goin... / Continue →

    These are shots of the Goleta, California home of a man who dropped $35,000 renovating the house to better suit his 18 cats. I mean, cool, but if I'm dropping $35,000 on home renovations for cats you better believe it's to build them their own apartment in the back yard. Cust... / Continue →

    This is a video of acrobat Kai Hou pulling off a bunch of stunts I didn't know were humanly possible. And to think I can't even pull off a back-flip off the diving board. I'm a f***ing beast at pencils though. Keep going for the worthwhile video and wish you'd run away to jo... / Continue →

    Note: This is only the beginning of the process, the rest is after the jump. This is a pictorial of the process Scottish forensic scientist Nigel used to recreate the face of a Crystal Head Vodka bottle. Is it really what his face would look like? No clue. Because when I wa... / Continue →

    These are Cannadoms, weed flavored pecker jackets. They cost €1.50 (~$2) apiece, and I'm not sure I trust my birth control to a weed-related company. What if they got high and forgot to manufacture tips on them all? Maybe they're just chronic flavored penis sleeves. Plus wh... / Continue →
