    And he used himself as bait! Just kidding, that only works with sharks and the Kraken. This is the 12-pound, estimated 60-70 year old lobster caught by biologist Forrest Galante off the coast of Anacapa Island, California. Damn, could you imagine-- "Eating the tail of that ... / Continue →

    In news that's sure to give Michelangelo a raging green boner (PROTIP: try not to look at it), Stoned Oven Gourmet Pizza in Los Angeles is now selling cannabis infused frozen pizzas through dispensaries (although people have been making weed pizzas themselves forever). Cool, b... / Continue →

    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 →

    Because we were determined to be number one at something, the US is the largest p0rn hoster in the world, accounting for 60% of all the boobs and penises on the internet -- some 428-million pages worth. That...is a lot of privates. And I've probably only seen a quarter of the... / 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 →
