    Sorry folks, I am dealing with something. This is The President, a 3,200-year old giant Sequoia that lives in the Sierra Nevadas (also a great beer) in California. And he's never moved -- 3,200 years in the exact same spot! Me? I'd get restless. The tree stands 247-feet ta... / Continue →

    Dammit dog, what part of 'Cheese!' don't you understand? This is the 5.5-meter (~18-foot) giant oarfish a snorkeler spotted just offshore Catalina Island in California. It was dead. Giant Oarfish normally frequent depths as deep as a kilometer (~2/3 of a mile) and are only s... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful quadrocopter tour of Bodie, California. In the late 1800's and early 1900's Bodie was a prosperous gold-mining town. By the 1940's it was a ghost town. Will business ever pick back up? It's unlikely. Will my mom ever remember to pick me back up from sch... / Continue →

    Sorry folks, I was having a little laptop trouble this morning so I had to break it over my knee and go buy a new one. THERE WAS NO OTHER OPTION. In hindsight I kind of regret not backing it up first though. This is a video of a dolphin stampede captured by Dolphin Safaris i... / Continue →

    A southern California police department recently issued a public safety notice warning citizens to be on the lookout for any child-loving bears in the area. NOBODY GETS BETWEEN ME AND FREE CANDY! At one convention of IT enthusiasts the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Departm... / Continue →

    Geekologists, I'm leaving today to drive 2,100 miles cross country to Los Angeles, which I will be calling home until it chews me up and spits me out and tries to urinates on me before I roundhouse kick it in the pecker (I may be down, but I'm never out). That's my actual set... / Continue →

    Alright this is probably the last personal ad I'll be posting because, damnit, I can't play cupid all the time. But, since I posted a guy's ad earlier this week, here comes a girl's in response BECAUSE I'M NOT SEXIST. Sex-y, yes, sex-ist, no. So, any of you male readers in t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Galactic Empire invading San Francisco. There's the Death Star, Star Destroyer, some AT-ATs, and a bunch of other vehicles. While it's not the best CG I've ever seen, I still felt it was worth a viewing. I especially liked the part at the end where the t... / Continue →

    Terry Childs, 43, is acting like one and refuses to give up the password he created that is effectively blocking all access to San Francisco's new multimillion-dollar network. Why did he do it? Possibly because he was on the verge of canning. Childs has worked for the city f... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a 5 million piece LEGO boulder being rolled down a hill in San Francisco. I find it hard to believe it's solid and 5 million pieces because it seems pretty light. But who knows, stranger things have happened (my penis once fell off in the shower after I scru... / Continue →

    Some guy in California modded his Honda del Sol into Luke's X-Wing Fighter from Star Wars: A New Hope. As you can see it's got R2 in the trunk, some nice graphics work (burns, Rebel insignia), and laser blasters on the car doors. I swear if you squint your eyes, shake your he... / Continue →

    We posted another drug vending machine a little while ago, and now there's one made specifically for marijuana -- all thanks to Vincent Mehdizadeh, a Los Angeles medical-cannabis dispensary owner. The heavily armored machines dispense your medication in 1/8 and 1/4 ounce envel... / Continue →
