    This is a collection of cross stitch embroidered microbes and viruses designed and needled by Alicia Watkins (links to her Etsy store where they're all available). Great, now I'm convinced I have something. Probably the measles. Psyche -- I was vaccinated as a kid! See, I c... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is a guide for how to crap like a real samurai. I have no clue if it's accurate, if they even used stand-up toilets, or anything else. I just like pretending I'm a warrior and figured some of you do too, so I'd post it. Although I always thought crapping like ... / Continue →

    Please, no Japanese pianist jokes, this is an upscale club we're running. This is a video of Japanese pianist Yoshiki performing against a holographic version of himself. It kind of reminded me of Dueling Banjos from Deliverance, but with infinitely less inbred rednecks tryin... / Continue →

    These are the R2-D2 swim trunks available from everybody's favorite store in the mall next to an Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Hot Topic. They're on sale for $22.13. For some reason in their online store they're in the girl's section, but that's definitely a dude in the picture. A... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    This is Youtuber COOP3RDRUMM3R covering Ellie Goulding's 'Burn' (appropriate) with flaming drumsticks. He warns everyone not to try it themselves, but I've already got my drumsticks soaking in kerosene. I'm gonna sprinkle my symbols with gunpowder too for EXTRA EFFECT. I wan... / Continue →

    This is the mecha smartphone holder ($90) made and sold by Etsy shop MechWorld. It looks like it's made out of a bunch of cabinet door hinges and other hardware. It also looks like it would be a real treat to accidentally step on in the middle of the night. "But why would it... / Continue →

    Because Florida will never stop being Florida, a woman set fire to her boyfriend's car after he refused to buy her a McFlurry from McDonalds. No McFlurry?! I would have stapled his balls to the seat and burned his house to the ground too. "Next thing you know, she says 'I'm ... / Continue →

    This is a video of sushi chef Hironori Ikeno preparing his special -- tiny slices of fish atop single grains of rice. There is no way I could get one of those in my mouth without losing it first. And if it did make it to my face, I'd probably accidentally vacuum it up my nose... / Continue →

    Prehistoric earth was black and white? Mindblowing! The only chicken from hell I want is in nugget form and they better be SPICY. This thing looks like a naked man crouched in a chicken costume. I outlined him for you here. See? Meet Anzu wyliei, a recently discovered spec... / Continue →

    This is a video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson discussing Sir Isaac Newton that's been slowed down to give him the appearance of being higher than a space kite. That's pretty much me all the time, except I'm not stoned, my brain just works slow. Plus all the nerves in my face melted ... / Continue →

    Hey guys I am having some personal health problems, so bear with me. This is the Doctor Who TARDIS LEGO set currently up for voting on the LEGO Cuuso website. Of all the sets I've seen on the site recently, I feel like this one might actually stand a chance. Whovians are pre... / Continue →

    This is the Lorica, a new suit of high-tech armor designed by the Australia based company Unified Weapons Master. The suit is packed with sensors so combatants can beat the shit out of each other with weapons without doing any serious damage. Weird, I thought doing damage was... / Continue →

    This is 'If They Could Transform', a series of digital paintings by artist Darren Rawlings imagining famous pop culture vehicles as Transformers. Which one is your favorite? I liked them all equally. Except for the Ninja Turtle's Party Wagon, ECTO-1, KITT from Knight Rider, ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the London Central Fellowship Band of the Salvation Army performing at a church when a trombone player hits a sneeze-sharp and blasts mucous right into his instrument. It sounded like a baby elephant farting. Or at least what I IMAGINE a baby elephant farti... / Continue →

    Note: Video is NSFW on account of a decent, albeit incredibly small by GW standards pecker. Also, I don't know how long the video is going to last so if it's gone already just search Youtube for 'Denver news penis' or something. I don't know, get creative. In news that made ... / Continue →

    This is a video of drummer Tyler Williams of the Beau Hodges Band demoing a bunch of Firepixel flamethrowers that respond to different drum beats via attached MIDI controllers. Cool, but I want voice activated flamethrowers. IN MY CAR. Each FirePixel is capable of 256 differe... / Continue →

    This is a mesmerizing 15-minute video of an artist manipulating sand on a spinning surface to hypnotize your brain and make you do things you normally wouldn't. In my case, it was eat a healthy lunch. I'm kidding, I had half a box of Girl Scout Cookies and the Snickers bar I ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the lovechild of Legion from Mass Effect and some shitty 80's rocker, the lead guitarist from robotic band Z-Machines prepares to shred...everybody in the audience's faces off. And not in a good way either -- in a BAD way. Like, it will wear those faces... / Continue →

    This is designer Mieke Meijer's Object Élevé, a staircase that doubles triples (quadruples? I suck at numbers) as a desk, shelving and tables. Interesting idea. You know what be even more interesting? A staircase that doubles as a treefort. How cool would that be? Also, t... / Continue →

    So they're remaking the arcade classic Gauntlet. This is one of the very few reboots I don't actually have a problem with. That is a RARITY. Like finding a diamond at the beach. Obviously, since I have the most experience with spells I will be playing as the wizard. The ga... / Continue →

    This is a video from Corridor Digital imagining what it would look like if Superman had a camera attached to his head. It's mostly lots of flying around avoiding powerlines, although he does stop a robbery in progress. You know, would be cool if Superman really did have a cam... / Continue →

    This is a stop-motion Simpsons opening made in LEGO with characters from the LEGO movie. Which I still haven't gotten around to seeing yet. You know why? Because I suck at being out in public. It's one of the things I am worst at. I am also pretty terrible at golf and anyt... / Continue →

    This is a naked lady bodypainted and posed to look like a rainbow macaw by artist Johannes Stoetter. Can you see her? I have never been so attracted to a bird before. That's not true. You know those dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets? Those things are amazing. I have a separa... / Continue →

    Note: Some NSFW language. I cannot tell you how many times I've almost died. I'd say it's in the thousands. I'm starting to wonder if I'm immortal, but none of my friends are brave enough to run me through with a pirate cutlass to find out. Maybe one of them will grow some ... / Continue →

    Earthquake! We're having an earthquake! Venice drum circle turns violent?? That's terrible news. So there was a 4.4-magnitude earthquake in Los Angeles this morning. It woke me up. I thought somebody had driven a truck into the side of my apartment building. I kept waitin... / Continue →

    This is a series of 90's cartoon characters imagined as sad-ass drug addicts by artist Paul Ribera. They're all incredibly disturbing. Like walking in on your roommate with his penis in his hand. Because that happened to me. I mean masturbating is normal and all, but not wh... / Continue →

    P0rnBurger is a website chronicling a man's journey to cook one magnificent burger a week, and take a picture of it. Then eat it. Eventually, it will make its way to the bottom of a toilet bowl, but the website doesn't document that part of the adventure. And I'm okay with ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version right HERE. This is the Batman comic book sleeve tattooed by Ian Hopkins of Ian Ink Tattoo in Southampton, England. It took forty hours to complete. My tattoo? My tattoo took five minutes. "It says penis in cursive." That's not cursive, it's calligrap... / Continue →
