    I get the NES lunchbox and 'A Game of Thrones', but what's up with the Q-tip? This is the lunchbox redditor Masennus made after his Nintendo stopped working and isn't the first NES lunchbox we've seen on Geekologie, just the better one. I love how a sandwich fits perfectly in... / Continue →

    This is the aftermath of an attempt to blend a couple house keys in a Blendtec brand blender. Now I know Tom the D-Bag Blend King would have you believe the thing can blend a f***ing tank, but if it can't handle a couple measly keys, I don't know. Sounds like you're about to ... / Continue →

    Chewbacca I trust, Boba not so much. He seems like the kind of mechanic that'd charge you for a new transmission when he didn't do anything but cut your brakes. Which, fun fact: pedestrians are a poor substitute. Aim for a tree. Not your average mechanics [zanypickle] Than... / Continue →

    In an attempt to convince consumers to always upgrade when they release an updated version of a product, Sony sneakily worked some malicious code into old-style PS3's, rendering them bunk. Thanks a lot, jerks. Kidding, that's not what happened, please don't sue me. But it to... / Continue →

    Casttoos are tattoos for casts. The company makes a number of different standard designs (flames, tribal stuff, etc), but the coolest available is a custom version of your actual brokeback bones. You just email the company a scan of your x-ray, and they send you a waterproof ... / Continue →

    This is a series of slings that lets the rest of the world know how you went and broke your arm. And as a guy who's broken his thumb once and arm twice, I've got to admit: it's never stopped me from still doing dumb shit all the time. High-five for never learning lessons! Bu... / Continue →

    This could be older than dino bones (but NOWHERE NEAR as sexy) for all I know, I just thought it was humorous because I pretty much see this message all the time and it makes me want to put my fist through the computer screen. Which I don't hesitate to do. Seriously, I'm alre... / Continue →

    French modder skadrums71 went and busted up a Super Nintendo and modded it Frankenstein style into an undead console. Amazingly, it still works. Per my tipster's translation: Of course it works! it would have been non-sense to mod it!! we can plug in and out the cartridge w... / Continue →

    Apparently some 16-year old girl dove into traffic because she dropped her iPod in the street and had already blasted her remaining brains out at level 11 volume. The girl was walking across the street on Tuesday when she dropped her iPod. She went back to grab it in moving ... / Continue →

    Impressive, but I would have gone with a triple gainer with a twist. Twisted ankle. I'm so clumsy! Now somebody bring me an ice pack, I threw a hip out humping a dinosaur pillow last night -- AND this morning. I AM A LOVEMAKING MACHINE! Physics WIN [current] Thanks to And... / Continue →

    Apparently now that the LHC has Google doing its bidding, it's taking it easy and won't become operational anytime soon. Unless September is considered soon, in which case, shit, I won't live to see the finale of LOST. The Large Hadron Collider could be switched back on in Se... / Continue →

    NOTE: VIDEO IS SLIGHTLY NSFW, DUE TO LANGUAGE. This video is so full of win I don't even know where to start. But I'll try. First of all, beating the shit out of a TV with a baseball bat is just awesome. Also, humping it against the wall is cool too. And to make matters ev... / Continue →

    Knock-offs: they look like the real thing, but are bought out of the back of a skeezy guy's van for a quarter of the price and either break or explode within a week of purchase. Then, to make matters worse, the bastard isn't set up on the same street corner when you go to retu... / Continue →
