    This is a video of professor Nadia Thalmann talking to her look-alike robot. She looks pretty life-like, but her speech and movement leave something to be desired, provided you desire a robot that can pass as human. The robot will serve as a receptionist at Singapore's Nanyan... / Continue →

    This is the world's longest bicycle. It's 117 feet and 5 inches (~36-meters) long, and made for two people. That seems like a waste. Plus it can only go straight. It's frame is based on the same design as the lighting rigs you see at concerts. I don't know why, but the who... / Continue →

    This is Snake Venom from Brewmeister. It's a 67.5% alcohol beer. It also costs £50 (~$80) for a 9-ounce bottle, so it's probably not the most cost effective choice for getting drunk. Which is why I'm gonna stick to drinking hand sanitizer and mouthwash. Please nobody actual... / Continue →

    Wow, with a face like that who could say no? NOTE: Video is entirely NSFW from 1:30 to 3:30 on account of simulated sex acts and dirty talk. I blushed and I'm home alone. Also, don't watch the end either. People are monsters. With the release of Grand Theft Auto V on the X... / Continue →

    WARNING: A lot of dirty words, because dirty words make things seem realer. This is an entirely (and poorly) staged video of a dad running over his deadbeat son's XBox game collection with the lawnmower. The whole thing is cringe-worthy, particularly the very beginning to the... / Continue →

    This is a series of miniature furniture pieces made out of fake human skin by artist Jessica Harrison. Why? No clue, but the loveseat looks like it was made from the skin around an @$$hole. A buttloveseat. I would totally curl up and nap on that. Hit the jump for three mor... / Continue →
