    This is the official highlight reel of the downtown Dubai New Year's fireworks show. It's nuts. You see those firework balls at the bottom? Those are the height of fireworks you'd see at a regular show. But they shot a bunch off the sides of the Burj Khalifa (the world's ta... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a nuclear explosion less than a millisecond after detonation, taken using a magical camera. Well, it's not really magic, I just don't understand how it works so that MAKES it magic. Same goes for magnets and microwaves. It's all little wizards as far as I'm... / Continue →

    Note: Short and worthwhile video is after the jump. Just watch it. This is a video of some guy with a 2,000-watt subwoofer under his computer desk after cranking that shit up to 11 to the Black Eyed Peas' 'Gotta Get Dat BROOM BROOM BROOM' or whatever the f*** this is. It's a... / Continue →

    Whatever you do, be careful where you sit. Get it? Because you might blow your asscheeks off! I mean, if the mines weren't decommissioned. But since they are, all you have to worry about is sitting on one of the spikey bits. Unless you're into that, in which case so am I a... / Continue →

    This is a little informational graphic explaining how grenades work. And don't worry -- you're not the only one who thought there was an explosive genie trapped inside. I'm right here with you. Which reminds me, did I ever tell you about the time a group of ruthless terroris... / Continue →

    I don't know about you, but I shoot to kill. Especially when it comes to protecting my castle (rent-controlled apartment). So I'm gonna have to pass on the Koosh bullets. AND seconds. Really, I'm stuffed. Lightfield has been selling these projectiles to law enforcement a... / Continue →

    Apparently the Burj Dubai (the world's tallest building) can't stop getting hit by lightning. Well what do you expect being a half a mile tall? That's like a 7-foot woman walking around and people not yelling, "that's a huge bitch!" Also, this may or may not be Allah's way o... / Continue →

    Berry Plastics and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers teamed up to develop X-Flex, a wallpaper with woven Kevlar strong enough to prevent bomb blasts from blowing all your shit up. Nice, but is it Big Bad Wolf proof? That mother can huff and puff! X-Flex works so well that t... / Continue →

    Loyal Geekologie Reader Ross made himself a Left 4 Dead pipe bomb cake. He had this to say about his incendiary delectable: I made a Left 4 Dead pipe bomb cake and it sort of looks awful and awesome both at the same time. Truer words have never been written, Ross. Am I right... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone by yesterday's AT-AT boombox, some cat went and made an AT-AT iPod dock. Which is basically an AT-AT toy with an electronic turntable glued to the side and spray painted gold. Neat. Might be just the thing I need to add a little geeky flair to my bedroom. ... / Continue →

    Folks, I've had a lot of really bad ideas in my life. And followed through with most of them. But that's neither here nor there, because one thing I never did was mod an inactive grenade into an MP3 player. Inside, modder Matt stuffed a 2GB Sansa Clip MP3 player. Hey Matt, ... / Continue →
