    So today's my birthday. It's my 640th year on this planet as an immortal warlock. I actually wrote all these articles yesterday so I could go out and celebrate my birthday at midnight, so, honestly, there's no telling where I am right now. Was there a guy sleeping on your co... / Continue →

    Today is 3.14, Pi Day -- a celebration of the mathematical constant. If you really want to get down, set an alarm for 1:59PM and then it will be 3.14159. Make sure to blow a noisemaker, then tear your shirt off and yell, "EAT SHIT, SQUARES -- IT AIN'T YOUR DAY!" At least th... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video captured by reader Alex of the Fireworks Festival that takes place every year in Tainan City, Taiwan, on the fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year. The festival celebrates the end of a cholera epidemic that happened over a century ago. The fireworks... / Continue →

    So today is my birthday (I'm nearly 600) and I'm gonna cut out of here early so I can go enjoy the day (but ultimately wind up lost in my own mind trying to figure out where everything went wrong). I'll be back sometime tomorrow, well rested and ready to write. Or bleary eyed... / Continue →

    I swear this is an internet classic that I saw and posted years ago, but after a search I couldn't find it on the site so here it is anyways (or again). This is a video of a bunch of dudes attaching explosives to the ends of giant hammers and then smacking them on the ground. ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of two kids who are (perhaps unknowingly) cosplaying as two Hobbits that are about to wind up on the dinner table of the orcs behind them. The shot is from a school in Spain where Carnival is in full effect right now (among other places) and where I should be ou... / Continue →

    Yes, that's me. Yes, I'm a wizard. No, that's not my DeLorean (you don't need a time machine when you know magic!). This is my 11,000th Geekologie article. It seems like only yesterday I was writing my 10,000th, but time flies when you're in the middle of a lifelong bender.... / Continue →

    Redditor pat_inthehat has an aunt who makes wedding cakes. And this is the Borg Cube one she recently finished for somebody's reception. No word if they had an Enterprise shaped pinata too, but it would be a shame if they didn't. Scanning the comments, several Redditors poin... / Continue →

    I dunno, I kind of like the fireworks "you should never turn your back on." Happy Fourth of July everyone. Not to brag about how patriotic I am or anything, but I went out and celebrated the 3rd of July as well. Today I'm going to a pool party to work on my tan (I'm whitish-... / Continue →

    This is an Alien vs. Predator themed wedding cake created by the Little Cherry Cake Company for a couple who is obviously crazy. There's even an inscription at the bottom of the cake that reads, "You may now decapitate the bride." Ha -- and they say romance is dead. No word ... / Continue →

    With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, what better way to celebrate that making a batch of piñata cookies (links to recipe tutorial) with a pocket of candy on the inside? "I dunno, polishing off a bottle of tequila, then smashing open a real piñata with even MORE tequila ... / Continue →

    I want that beer and I want it now. This is a little video game inspired minigolf course built to celebrate Tom Scott's 10,000th day on earth. Where did he live before that? No clue, but my guess is Reaper controlled territory. Also, I really hope we weren't supposed to bri... / Continue →

    The second season of Game of Thrones returned to boob tubes (and tit-v's) last night and what better way to celebrate the television event THAN WITH A PIZZA PARTY? "I dunno, donning cardboard armor and running around in the front yard poking your friends with a stick?" You, s... / Continue →

    Haaaaaaappy Chinese New Year! This is the year of the dragon, so be sure to get out there and fly around breathing fireballs to your heart's content. Maybe even stockpile a big ol' mound of gold and then just sit on it in a cave. Man, I would totally do that. This is a vide... / Continue →

    Today, May the 4th, is Star Wars Day. Why? Because of the popularity of the pun, "may the fourth be with you." Embarrassing as shit, I know. Kidding, I'm just jealous I didn't come up with it. Or did I? *firing up time machine* "Go back and kill Jar Jar while you're at i... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader (and local news employee) Alex attended Fayetteville, Arkansas's 3rd annual 'Bacon Day', where Nick Hamon (who may or may yes be the lovechild of the Earl of Ham and Lady Bacon) failed to top his BA-K-47 and bacon AT-AT from previous years with this half-assed... / Continue →

    Because today is 3/14 and those are the first three digits of pi, (followed by 32.33 -- repeating of course. jk jk) it's Pi Day and everyone gathers in the streets to sing traditional Irish songs and eat pickled cabbage or whatever. No? Different holiday? Oh. Well I'm not ... / Continue →

    BOOMSHACKALACKA -- this is my seven-thousandth article here on Geekologie. For those of you that aren't good at the maths, that's like a seven with forty 0's after (at least in my mind it is). You know, it seems like only yesterday I was nearing 1,000 posts and convinced I'd ... / Continue →

    This is a Wolverine cake. I know it's kind of hard to tell because the claws are pointed directly at you and made out of aluminum foil, but that's what it is. And there's a different one after the jump with foam claws. Neither one is really the best thing I've ever seen, but... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader Justin Blinder (Aaaaah -- my eyes!) went and baked an augmented reality cake after realizing that, if he didn't augment reality, somebody was gonna have a pretty sad party. Recently being faced with the task of making (or buying) a decorative cake, I decided ... / Continue →
