    This is a video from the Crazy Russian Hacker demonstrating what happens when you stick coins in a block of dry ice. What happens? They shiver. WHY do they shiver? BECAUSE THEY'RE COLD, WHY ELSE WOULD THEY. Just kidding, because science. Or is it magic? Allegedly it's sci... / Continue →

    This is the ice sculpture created by a Jeep parked at a hospital in Greenville, North Carolina. "I'd hit it." We all know you would, Optimus. "Hey! I don't go around banging just anything." Ahahahhahahhaha, seriously?! Be honest -- how many lemons have you had sex with? ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Ann Got's cat (which will now affectionately be known as the Kool-Aid Cat) blasting through a snowbank to return home after a snowstorm in one of those places that got a bunch of snow recently. So probably not southern California. The look on that ... / Continue →

    Note: Article was originally posted January 3, 2008, but because the internet is cyclical the story is going around again so I edited it and moved it to the front page. Seen here looking suspiciously like Jake from Adventure Time in tank form, Yuki-taro is a Japanese robot t... / Continue →

    This is a short video of some folks going off the Ski and Snowboard Bungee Ramp at the Tignes Ski Resort in France's Northern Alps. From what I could tell, the bungee cords actually slide on two cables parallel to the jump, so you continue bouncing further and further down the... / Continue →

    This is a very short dashcam video of a TIE Fighter crashed on a snowy highway in Germany. Unfortunately, it looks like both pilots survived the accident. Will one of them prove to be the stormtrooper that finally laser-blasts old Luke Skywalker in the face and puts an end to... / Continue →

    This is the Giant Ice Cream Scoop available from Hammacher Schlemmer. It costs $60 *spit-takes rainbow sprinkles* and scoops out a whole pint. Alternatively, buy Ben & Jerry's. That's what I do. I don't even need a spoon, I just peel back the paper as I eat my way down. Do... / Continue →

    For the past couple years Anthony Herrera has designed a new series of do-it-yourself Star Wars paper snowflakes for you to cut and out and decorate your home/office/cubicle (previous posts with a ton of other designs HERE and HERE). And these are this year's batch, including ... / Continue →

    Group hug! This is the R/C car disguised as a penguin that researchers in Antarctica are using to infiltrate emperor penguin colonies to study the birds without alarming them. It looks like its working. That or all the baby penguins have just always dreamed of having a robot... / Continue →

    The fossilized remains of a previously unknown species of giant penguin have been found in Antarctica. Palaeeudyptes klekowskii ("Colossus Penguin") stood almost seven feet tall, and weighed around 250 pounds. For reference, my roommate is 5'4" and almost 300. Plus just a t... / Continue →

    This is a giant hole in the Lower Ruth Glacier in Alaska photographed by National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey. Apparently there's only a layer of transparent ice covering the potential 1,000-foot drop to hell frozen over. I would have jumped up and down on it harder th... / Continue →

    Police are looking for a young couple who stole a replica of a hatchling duck-bill dinosaur (Edmontosaurus) from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences earlier this week. As seen in this surveillance footage, the dickbag in the stupid shorts jumps a glass barrier and ya... / Continue →

    This are two photos taken by Coloradan Cathy Hartt earlier this May. By the way, a Coloradan is somebody from Colorado (just in case you failed geography and thought people from Colorado were called mountain folk -- those are West Virginians). Anyway, Cathy took these picture... / Continue →

    This is the $350 eCool cooler. What does the e stand for? Environmental? No clue. Who cares anyways. The cooler, which is buried about 4-feet underground, can hold up to 24 cans which can be loaded or extracted via hand-crank. How cold the drinks get depends on the tempera... / Continue →

    This is 'The Arousal', a champagne flavored ice cream that packs 25mg (the lowest dose pill) of Viagra in each scoop. Make yourself a sundae and rock a week-long boner! The ice cream was developed by Charlie Harry Francis of Lick Me I'm Delicious (of $225/scoop glow-in-the-da... / Continue →

    This is the soon to be released pasta flavored ice cream bar from Japan based Gari-Gari Kun. What's it gonna taste like? ASS. I'm kidding, I already said it's going to taste like pasta -- can't you read? If so, how about a bed time story? One with lots of sex and violence ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of ice boulders washing up in Glen Arbor on Lake Michigan. When reached for comment, the Ice Witch had this to say, "Want to rub my nipples?" Nice try lady, but you're not turning me into an ice sculpture. The giant ice balls form in just-below-freezin... / Continue →

    This is what it looks like to shoot boiling water out of a Super Soaker in -41°C (-41.8°F) temperatures. I'm sorry, but that is just too f***ing cold. Any of you live in places that get that cold? Here's what I want you to do. Look outside. What do you see? "Snow." Anyth... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / Continue →
