    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone who likes to punish themselves by staring at the sun, our star is beautiful. And I'm not just saying that because without it we wouldn't be here, because I would actually prefer that. This is 'Jewel Box Sun', a video from NASA showing th... / Continue →

    This is a newly discovered species of slug found on Mount Kaputar in New South Wales, Australia. I thought it looked like a melted AirHead. Or a unicorn turd. Unfortunately, scientists weren't brave enough to poke it with a stick to see if rainbows and happiness shot out so ... / Continue →

    According to scientists, a new comet discovered speeding past Saturn may turn out to be one of the brightest in history, possibly even outshining the moon (in brightness, not size) in late 2013/early 2014. Obviously, if that happens, I will find a wolf and laugh in its face wh... / Continue →

    Wicked Lasers, a company best known for selling me the laser I accidentally blinded my little brother with (sorry Geordi!), just released the first in a new series of 'Sith' double-ended dildos laser light sticks in honor of Star Wars Day. The $600 pew-stick packs 1W of power ... / Continue →

    There's a full moon Saturday and it's gonna appear the largest it has in almost 20 years, and won't happen again until 2029. So yeah, probably a good idea to give it a peep just in case shit hits the fan in the meantime (which it WILL). Also, be sure to tell all your friends ... / Continue →

    Hello Kitty Doc Martens not cutting it for you? How about some plush Reeboks? I know, I was *this close* to buying them too before I realized they weren't Pumps. What? Cankles, yo, I need the support! Hit the jump to see black and white ones.... / Continue →

    Spanish prosties hooking on the highway outside of Els Alamus have been ordered to wear reflective safety vests or face up to 40 euro (~$55) fines. But nobody looks sessy in reflective yellow! Police claim the sex workers on the LL-11 road are not being specifically targeted ... / Continue →

    Seen here pretending to be more than two feet off the ground, 13-year old Hibiki Kono made himself a vacuum powered wall-climbing suit so he can escape the asylum and avenge his parents' deaths. Ooooor climb a brick wall while people take pictures. Using a pair of 1,400-watt ... / Continue →

    Remember last week's crazy-ass sun picture and video? Well here come some more shots from the recently launched NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory. Just look at that! Amazing, isn't it? So majestic. So powerful. I mean, that's our sun right there -- tooting flames. God what... / Continue →

    Just to let this chick know that her LED wedding dress doesn't hold a lumen to a REAL LED dress, somebody went and created the GalaxyDress, which is being touted as the world's biggest LED-covered dress. Yay? Hip hop hooray? Ho -- hey -- ho. I'M NAUGHTY BY NATURE! The Gala... / Continue →

    It's a well-known scientific fact that aliens have a light fetish. So these columns of light seen above the town of Sigulda, Latvia can only mean one thing: they're here. Needless to say, there's a cover-up in effect. But experts are agreed there may be a more prosaic explan... / Continue →

    Designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac, now to be known as Jean Charles Van Damme Dem Legos Are Hot, displayed some LEGO inspired outfits at a recent fashion show. If you can't tell, they're making me amorous. Gimme kissey! Haha, now that'll be a nickel. And also, why the hel... / Continue →

    Ooooh, I like that tie. The Immersion Scarf is basically a smaller version of a whatever the hell you'd call this thing. But, instead of being used in conjunction with a computer, it was designed for use with cell phones and portable gaming systems. And no so much for warmth... / Continue →

    The Sony Bravia ZX1 is not only 9.9mm thin, but "40% more efficient per panel inch compared to conventional flat panel technology" and allegedly uses less power than a light bulb. I'm not sure what kind of lightbulb, but probably not the 5-watt nightlight in the bathroom I use... / Continue →

    The SmartSwim UV Intensity Bikini ($99) has little purple beads right between the tits (and other, more boring places) to let you know how intense the UV rays are. Light purple good, dark purple, cancer. I suppose if you don't want to shell out 99 bones you could buy any biki... / Continue →

    Some designers over at Transparent House have come up with a pretty clever way of recycling old cassette tapes. Not as clever as shooting them off your fence from the back porch, but still pretty clever. They're making lamps. That's right, lamps. You know, illumination devi... / Continue →

    IMAGE REMOVED AT REQUEST OF SKY FACTORY Sky Ceilings are probably an old as hell idea. So old. Your mommy probably read you a news story about them when you were a child. Yet, here they are -- weird. Sky Ceilings were designed to mimic daylight and change with the time of da... / Continue →

    Sometimes there's a candle that comes along and changes the way I look at wax-fueled flames forever. And this is one -- The Hotwicks Stripper Candle. The $9 candle smells like strippers. It's a candle and an alibi all in one! You don't smell like a stripper, you just smell lik... / Continue →

    The Brightdoor is green when unlocked, red when locked. Pretty simple, but it's making that girl in the picture glow like the devil. Apparently Lervik Design (the company responsible) first made just handles that lit up. But after realizing you could waste a lot more energy if... / Continue →
