    This is a BMW X6 with heat-sensitive paint that reveals The Hulk when doused with hot water (previously: this car treated with the same style of paint). Pretty cool, right? Unfortunately, cars usually don't get doused with hot water that often. I guess pee would work too. H... / Continue →

    This is a $12 ThinkGeek coffee mug with a heart on it that turns red when there's hot liquid inside and black when there's not. No word what color it turns if filled with unicorn tears, but my guess is a rainbow. And speaking of unicorn tears... *stirring cat knuckles, drago... / Continue →

    First of all, thank you all for the kind birthday wishes. I just went through and read them all and that was some seriously sweet shit you all said (I'm so eloquent). I almost cried, but then I wrestled a bear (and won) so that I wouldn't. But seriously -- thanks, I had the... / Continue →

    This is a short film called Pac-Man: The Movie. It's told from the ghosts perspective, by four people running around in colored trash bags. I thought it was pretty cute. Not baby bunny cute, mind you, but definitely cuter than unidentifiable roadkill. Youtube Thanks to N... / Continue →
