    First there was the real video of Jean-Claude Van Damme doing his famous leg splits between two Volvo trucks driving in reverse, then there was the CG video of Chuck Norris doing the splits between two jets. And here is another CG video of Van Damme answering back with a leg s... / Continue →

    Remember that first-person lightsaber battle? Me neither, but then I watched it again, and now I HALF remember it. Like a dream, if dreams are things I wrote about on Geekologie, which they're not but sometimes I CHOOSE to write about mine anyways. A man chooses, a slave obe... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and some Jedi recruit shot in Darth Vader's first-person perspective. At least until halfway through, then it switches to the Jedi when Vader starts force-choking him out (did they exchange souls?!). It's decent... / Continue →

    Because decorating means different things to different people, Star Wars fan Barry turned his entire 140-square foot living room into a diorama of the Battle of Hoth. There isn't any Photoshop in the pictures but the way, the explosions are actually lights Barry built. You re... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red wasp and some sort of spider GOING AT IT in a battle to the death. Who wins? Definitely not anybody who watches the video, I can tell you that. The wasp -- the wasp wins. It runs circles around the spider stabbing it in the head until it is DEAD. B... / Continue →

    According to recent research, scientists have discovered that Neocapritermes taracua termites indigenous to French Guiana "suicide bomb" their attackers when threatened, releasing a poison toxic enough to kill their would-be overlords. Plus their guts squirt out in the process... / Continue →

    Man, I would stomp through there like Godzilla faster than you could say, "Nooooooo, please don't, I spent a lot of time on that!" This is LEGOmaniac Daniel Z's recreation of the Battle of the Hornburg at Helm's Deep. It, uh, looks pretty legit. Way better than my recreation... / Continue →

    Inb4 dammit Qui-Gon, you're swinging like a f***ing padawan! This is a humorous video ("aim like a drunkard, jump like an idiot") showcasing some of the major lightsaber battles in The Phantom Menace and just how overly-cautious they were executed. Like, a lightsaber never co... / Continue →

    Because themed engagement photos are all the rage these days (you crazy kids!), Geekologie Reader Sean K. and his bride-to-be decided to spice up their photoshoot in the park with a ninja attack. Aaaaaaaand these are those pictures. Because if there's one thing that brings a ... / Continue →

    This is a homemade (you can tell by the beach towel) drinking Battleship setup. If you do the math (which I had a friend do for me on account of the double digits), the loser winds up taking 16 shots. That's a lot. Unless they're playing with beer (which I suspect), then it'... / Continue →

    This is a video of a praying mantis (Idolomantis Diabolica -- the Devil's Flower Mantis) showing off his ninja-ing skills on some dude's thumb. Honestly, I can't even believe this thing exists in real life. Of course I said the same thing about Double-Stuffed Oreos, and yet t... / Continue →

    This is a cute (that's right, I said it!) 16-second video of two cats with lightsabers duking it out Jedi style. They both seem...special. Especially the one in the picture here. I'm not sure if he was born ass-first or what, but there's definitely something wrong with him. ... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen it (and even if you have seen it that doesn't actually change what it is), this is a video of a father and son locked in an epic toy battle, complete with special effects AND sound effects. It's pretty cute and definitely worth a watch. Now I can't... / Continue →

    This is a rap battle between Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. It was surprisingly well made (I don't expect anything to be well made anymore). The only thing I didn't like was Einstein talking so much smack on my man Hawking for his disability. Low blows, especially comi... / Continue →

    This is a short video demonstrating Vecna Robotics' B.E.A.R. (Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot). It was allegedly designed to help carry wounded soldiers off the battlefield, but the video also shows its skill at smashing through doors, breaking car windows, lifting weights... / Continue →

    NOTE: 9-minute video of the thing hacking through raw meat, ice blocks, wood and other shit is after the jump. It's worth watching, but I recommend skipping around. Or prancing -- I won't judge! This is a commercial for Cold Steel's Two Handed Great Sword. It costs $550 an... / Continue →

    I've been trying to avoid posting t-shirts lately because a lot of you think t-shirt articles are lame, but then I realized I'm a man who has to follow his heart ask his mom for a ride to the mall later, and I should do whatever I want. Plus this is a f***ing dino with lasers ... / Continue →

    This is a little graphic of various underachieving AT-AT's that never saw battle on Hoth because, quite frankly, they would have screwed everything up and lost it for the Empire. Which, you'll recall if you've ever seen The Wrath of Khan, is the opposite of what happened. All... / Continue →

    For those of you that don't care about college basketball, here are some superhero brackets created by ESPN so you can feel like you're participating in something. Me? I only participate in pageants and ménage à trois. Back me up, hands. I'll sit on you! Nerd alert! We'v... / Continue →
