    Meet drummer Jason Barnes. Jason lost part of his right arm in an accident, so Georgia Tech professor Gil Weinberg built him robotic prosthesis so he could still drum his face off and become a rock star. Hell, I haven't even heard him play yet and I'd still throw my bra at hi... / Continue →

    These are the photos from a battle between a python and a crocodile near Lake Moondarra in western Queensland, Australia. Apparently the battle went on for hours, with the python eventually choking the crocodile out, then swallowing it. For the record, that is not how I want ... / Continue →

    This is the 'mirror fence' designed and installed by artist Alyson Shotz. It's a picket fence made with mirrored surfaces to blend into the environment and become less obtrusive. Me? I prefer obtrusive fences. My house is surrounded by a 14-foot electrified security fence t... / Continue →

    These are the chocolate chip shot glasses designed by New York City pastry chef Dominique Ansel. If his name sounds familiar, it's because Dominique is also responsible for the super-popular cronut. If his name didn't sound familiar at all, welcome to the club. Figuring th... / Continue →

    Seen here looking dapper as hell, 13-year old Jamie Edwards poses in front of his nuclear fusion set-up that was successfully able to collide two hydrogen atoms into a helium atom without leveling the school. This makes Jamie the younger nuclear fushion-er on the planet, and a... / Continue →

    This is a fake trailer for Paperboy 3: The Hard Way, a grindhouse style version of the Paperboy video game. It was weird. But I'm a sucker for videos that look copies of crappy VHS tapes, so I'm posting it. I'm also posting a Craigslist ad for a new roommate. It's going to ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like something I'd bet you I'll eat off the floor for $1, Pithovirus, a 30,000 year old virus recently dug up from permafrost in Siberia, plots world domination. The virus, which is harmless to humans but deadly to amoebas, is also the largest virus ever foun... / Continue →

    Remember that Barbie doll artist Nickolay Lamm made using the Center for Disease Control's actual average measurements for a 19-year old girl? Well now he's back with a crowdfunding project to manufacture a line of realistic bodied Lammily dolls. Annnnnnnd he already met doub... / Continue →

    If you haven't seen it already, this is a video of a dolphin stampede and humpback whale migration caught by aerial drone cameras operated by Captain Dave's Whale and Dolphin Safari. Apparently Captain Dave sunk one drone after flying it into the boat's antenna. Captain Ron n... / Continue →

    This is the interior of Seinfeld's apartment made for touring with an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Practicing coming through the door like Kramer?!" What? No. I was going to say having virtual sex on Jerry's couch and kitchen co... / Continue →

    These are a handful of shots (and a video) taken by photographer Rocio Preciado of 12-year old Chewbacca the dachshund playing with his friends Han Solo and Darth Vader. Wait -- Darth Vader? Darth Vader doesn't have friends. If anything, Darth Vader only has frenemies who ar... / Continue →

    I swear this has existed in other forms before (maybe in New York?), but Airpnp is an internet app that connects people who need to use the bathroom with people who are willing to let strangers use their bathrooms for a fee. Fine, but if anybody pisses in my bathtub or smears ... / Continue →

    In news that brings back terrifying memories of Large Marge, Pee-wee Herman's tricked-out bike from Pee-wee's Big Adventure is currently for sale on eBay. I am going to buy it. I am going to buy it, then fly it to the moon like in E.T. "They didn't actually fly TO the moon i... / Continue →

    What percentage of Americans do you think know what a dongle is? Because my guess is 85% think it's what boy kindergartners call their pee-pee. This is the soon to be released Wake Up And Smell The Bacon smartphone dongle from Oscar Mayer. It plugs into a phone and syncs wit... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anybody whose friends ask them to come fix their computer before trying turning it off and on again, a recent technology based email survey revealed a healthy percentage of Americans are dumb as shit when it comes to computers. Plus obese. 77% ... / Continue →

    This is the Little Tikes Coze Couple that was transformed into a mini Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Redditor tabres for his nephew (previously: this Ecto-1 pushcart). Lucky kid. When I was growing up my uncle didn't build me anything, he would just squeeze my leg right above the kne... / Continue →

    These are the Hanaga Tap Nose Outlets from design firm ekoD Works. They turn any horizontal plug into a nose-shaped vertical plug and come in black, white and pink. They also cost $35 apiece, which sent me into a coughing/near-puking fit when I first read it. That's a lot of... / Continue →

    This is a video from R/C Helicopter stunt crew HeliGraphix of a ~125-pound woman (plus equipment) being lifted off the ground by two heavy-duty modified Gaui X7 "Megatron" R/C copters. I thought it was fake at first, but apparently it's real. So that's pretty cool. Now someb... / Continue →

    Two video game medley posts in a row -- things are getting pretty wild in here! I'm joking, I'm so sick and medicated I couldn't get a boner if it was the only thing I had to do to win a lotto jackpot. This is a video of two first-named Joe Jeremiah playing a 9-minute set of ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Bottle Boys (of Little Mermaid theme fame) performing a medley of video game themes (Pong, Pac-Man, Tetris, Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic The Hedgehog, Pokemon, World of Warcraft and Angry Birds) entirely on bottles. They do an amazing jo... / Continue →

    This is the HAV304, the world's largest aircraft (provided you consider blimps aircraft). It's 300-feet long, 113 feet wide and 85 feet tall. It can stay aloft (on helium) for three weeks traveling at speeds up to 100MPH and potentially cover 50,000 miles. For reference, I p... / Continue →

    This is a very brief video of a sugar glider (a variety of gliding possum) that divebombs its owner whenever he snaps his fingers. Nice WWF championship wrestling belt, btw. Is that Macho Man Randy Savage's? Also, I'm pretty sure that's a bow and arrow hanging from the smoke... / Continue →

    This is a fake video from HUVrTech featuring Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Tony Hawk and a handful of other celebrities (including Terrell Owens and Moby) lying about riding a real hoverboard. The CG is decent, but the whole thing is impossible to believe. Plus they made the... / Continue →

    This is 'Father to Son', the announcement trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight due out later this year (for PS4, XBox One and PC). Awesome, but I still need to play Arkham Origins first. Or do I? "Meh." What does that mean? "It's okay." So should I, or shouldn't I --- you kn... / Continue →

    This is the Batman versus Terminator animated short created by Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond. Some background while I cough my f***ing lungs out into the sink. I swear I hocked up something this morning that was like, alive. I tried to scoop it up in a paper cup but it ... / Continue →

    This is a video of The Harp Twins (Camille and Kennerly Kitt) performing Hedwig's Theme on dual harps. Plus they do some magic and frolic through the woods a little bit. You know, they both kind of remind me of girls from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Remember the little bl... / Continue →

    It's not really a game, it's just a little replica of the Jurassic Park computer system Dennis Nedry set up (access the site HERE). Three attempts using the 'access' command results in a lockout and Nedry dressed as Elvis reminding you that you didn't use the magic word. Usin... / Continue →

    These are the conceptual Justice League Redbull cans imagined by New York based art director Diego Fonseca. I would drink all of them. The Batman and Aquaman ones? Those I would chug. Speaking of, is an Aquaman movie officially in the works now or what? Because I feel like ... / Continue →

    Him? Own a Master Sword replica? I don't believe it. So you might have noticed I didn't write yesterday because I am deathly ill but I am trying to write today but my brain feels like the Jello that somebody's already squished between the gaps in their teeth a couple times, ... / Continue →
