    This is a painting that appears to change perspective depending on the angle it's viewed from. How does it work? SPOILER: It's not flat. It's actually made up of two flat topped pyramids. Just like the creepy eyeball pyramid on the back of a dollar bill! Clearly, this is s... / Continue →

    So somebody realized the 2014 World Cup Brazil logo looks like a facepalming Captain Picard. You think the person who designed it was inspired by The Next Generation? That answer is no unless you're a crazy person. Come on, I believe in gnomes and fairies and even I can reco... / Continue →

    This is a video of what happens inside a dishwasher when you turn it on. SPOILER: it uses water to wash dishes. It was weird watching the middle spray nozzle looking like a sad boner at the beginning though. Like, it was trying SO HARD to get up but just couldn't. Reminds m... / Continue →

    A-ha's 1985 music video for 'Take on Me' is one of the best ever made. Granted I don't really keep up with current music videos, but in my mind they're all CG and ass shaking. "What's wrong with ass shaking?" There is nothing wrong with ass shaking. This is the Doctor Who 5... / Continue →

    In news that's sure to set the computing world ablaze (or not at all), Bill Gates has confessed that the control-alt-delete keyboard combination was a mistake and the fault of a keyboard designer who refused to add a one-button equivalent. How enthralling! If I was any more ... / Continue →

    According to a recent experiment conducted by high school math teacher Dan Anderson and his students (arguably the most trustworthy kind of experiment), Double Stuf Oreos are actually only 1.86x stuffed, and Mega Stufs 2.68x stuffed. I don't really have a problem with the Mega... / Continue →

    In recent years there have been some pretty defamatory claims that the t-rex was just a scavenger and didn't hunt other live dinos. But now, thanks to a t-rex tooth found lodged in the tailbone of a duck-billed dinosaur that clearly lived for some time after the encounter, pal... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a Melbourne, Australia fireworks show viewed in reverse. No screepcap can really do it justice though, so I suggest you at least watch a little bit of it. A lot of the fireworks reminded me of those little shooting stars you see in your vision af... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a hair under a microscope, scientists have managed to capture an image of DNA's double helix structure for the first time, officially ending the era of me being able to claim DNA is actually shaped like little rainbows. Truly a sad day. The... / Continue →

    This is a series of anamorphic illusions. Basically they're photo-realistic prints that, when viewed from just the right angle, look like what they're supposed to. But if you move them, you see just how distorted the actual image is. Be careful though, you might get a headac... / Continue →

    Mimas, left, Tethys, right. Remember when scientists discovered a Pac-Man hiding in Saturn's moon Mimas when viewing the satellite with a thermal imaging camera? Well look out world, because Saturn's moon Tethys has one too. My moon? My moon has a scar that looks like a flow... / Continue →

    I was never good at math and I'm still not now. 5 x 5 = 30. Okay that time I actually got it right, normally I don't though. And now researchers have discovered that anxiety about doing mathematics causes a brain response similar to one when experiencing bodily harm. DO YOU... / Continue →

    Illustrations by Nate Carroll As any t-rex could tell you, the best triceratops meat is in the neck beneath the frill. And now paleontologists believe they've discovered just how the beasts tore the heads off their prey to get at it. The steps they took (as illustrated above)... / Continue →

    Using long-wavelength observations, the Keck II telescope in Hawaii was recently able to see through the methane gas cloud surrounding Uranus and provide the best images of the planet to date. It really is surrounded by a gas cloud by the way -- that wasn't a euphemism for but... / Continue →

    In outerspace news, the Curiosity Rover just beamed back some pictures to earth that scientists are saying provide proof-positive evidence that flowing water once existed on the red planet. Cool, now maybe if we time traveled back a billion years we could drink it. Scientis... / Continue →

    Moths (AKA ugly butterflies): they're spazzy. They're like the Geekologie Writer of the flying insect world: attracted to bright lights, always running into things, and will probably meet their untimely death from the shock of a bug-zapper. This is a 20-second exposure showin... / Continue →

    This is the Clopen Shelf from Torafu Architects. It might just look like a plain old shelf, BUT IT CONTAINS A HIDDEN DRAWER FOR VALUABLES. Don't own any valuables? Welcome to the club. The drawer is only 23mm (~0.9 of an inch) tall though, so you can forget about stashing a... / Continue →

    I dunno, I thought it was pretty common knowledge that a cat who's allowed outside will get into any and all the trouble it possibly can. I guess some cat owners just have a hard time accepting their precious little Mittens or Missy is out there running around killing things, ... / Continue →

    These are Bum Bag Drink Coolers, koozies that look like brown paper bags but are actually made from waterproof and tear-free Tyvek. You'll be the belle of the ball under the bridge! Man, I've brown-bagged it before. I'm not proud. Or ashamed. It's just one of those things ... / Continue →

    Sometime on Wednesday, while I'm BBQ-ing my corn on the cob loving face off, scientists working with CERN's Large Hadron Collider are excepted to announce the existence of the Higgs Boson particle and NOT that the collider is pregnant having a girl (although Optimus Prime has b... / Continue →
