    PROTIP: Don't expect too many Jennifer O'Donnells to be waking you up. The Wakie app is a free app for all major mobile platforms that allows you to set an alarm within the app, then be woken up to the call from a stranger at that time. Your phone never actually rings, the ap... / Continue →

    This is artist Rebekah Stieg Knuth's custom Boba Fett wrapped Hyundai Veloster. That way she can tell her Veloster from all the other Velosters in the mall parking lot. You know how I locate my car in a crowded parking lot? Look for the nicest car I can find, then hot-wire i... / Continue →

    This is a video of music teacher (hence the giant instruments) Tom BetGeorge's Christmas lights display. Tom says he has about 12,500 channels running 100,000 lights, and this year they're all synced to Star Wars songs (there's even a lightsaber battle). I wonder how many peo... / Continue →

    This is a sampling of the dinosaur Menorahs sold by Etsy shop The Vanilla Studio. They're made from spraypainted plastic dinosaur toys, some putty, and candle holders. They cost $85 apiece though, making it far more economical to create your own. I just made one by taping a ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of an unknown goosebumpy woman who got a tattoo from an unknown artist of LEGO Superman holding up the side of one of her breasts. Is LEGO Hulk lifting the other one? No clue. Also, not to sound too nitpicky or anything, but that boob doesn't really look big e... / Continue →

    Because people are always inventing new and exciting ways to die, this is motorcyclist Julien Dupont riding his bike down the tracks (technically the walkway between the tracks) of the Montaña Rusa at the Feria de Chapultep amusement park in Mexico City. Unsurprisingly, Red Bu... / Continue →

    Because what good is a blank canvas if you aren't going to paint it with a bunch of cartoon characters, 60-year old grandfather and prison warden Michael Baxter currently has 203 Simpsons character tattoos, the highlight being this entire back piece. That is some serious dedic... / Continue →

    This is the Cthulhu Christmas wreath created by Maika Keuben (of Cthulhu Christmas tree fame). It's the perfect wreath to let carolers know they've come to the wrong house to sing at. But by the time they realize it, it will be too late, and the tar and feathers will already ... / Continue →

    This is the old CRT television cabinet that Redditor matttheman11 turned into an aquarium that looks like Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld (full step-by-step plans of the build HERE). The fish that live in the aquarium are even named after the four major cast members, plus Newm... / Continue →

    Because most major pizza chains have given up on trying to make quality pizza and instead been focusing their efforts on inventing new shitty novelty pies that nobody will try more than once, this is the Doritos Crunchy Crust Pizza available from Pizza Hut Australia. It's a pi... / Continue →

    Because who hasn't dreamed of smelling like whiskey all the time, the Heriot Watt University's School of Textiles and Design teamed up with Harris Tweed and Johnny Walker to develop a fabric that permanently smells like Johnny Walker Black. Alternatively, pour a shot on yourse... / Continue →

    Because apparently some people weren't aware the Sriracha bubble has already burst (not unlike the bacon bubble of the late 2000's), Rogue Brewery has just introduced Sriracha Stout. I will pass. Out. I will pass out after drinking 14 Sierra Nevadas instead. ROGUE Srirach... / Continue →

    This is the $40 fallen AT-AT lawn ornament being sold by ThinkGeek. It would look perfect covered with a light dusting of snow, invisible after a heavy snowstorm, and entirely out of place in the summer. You might want to keep that in mind when you're making your purchasing d... / Continue →

    Note: I moved this post up from last year for relevance, originally posted December 2013. This is the Cthulhu inspired Christmas dinner made by Texan Rusty Eulberg and his wife. It consists of a bacon layered turkey (although way more bacon definitely wouldn't hurt anything... / Continue →

    What do you say -- sleep between my buns? Remember that pizza bedding set? Well now there's a cheeseburger version (available HERE for around $80). I'll tell you what: instead of big spoon/little spoon, I'll pretend to be a pickle and you pretend to be a jalapeno. Then we'l... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO strip club set being sold by Citizen Brick. It costs $275 *spit-take* and includes over 80 custom printed elements including hologram foil stamped mirrors and 4 stripper minifigs. Plus it has some LED lighting to give it that authentic nudie bar feel. Still,... / Continue →

    This is the hole-through-the-bicep optical illusion tattoo inked by Paul O'Rourke of Allstar Ink in Limerick, Ireland. No word if that's a leprechaun in the picture, but I have my suspicions. Seems pretty small for a bicep, doesn't it? So this is either a leprechaun or the w... / Continue →

    This is the Tetris Stackable LED Desk Lamp available from ThinkGeek ($40). You can stack the pieces however you want, and they light up when they make contact with the pieces below. And in case you were worried, yes, it is an OFFICIALLY LICENSED Tetris product. Personally, I... / Continue →

    This is the 'Upside Down Truck' built by mechanic Rick Sullivan. The truck, which took Rick six months and $6,000 to build, is actually a 1991 Ford Ranger with a 1995 Ford F-150 body placed on top, upside-down. Impressive work. I just wish the video didn't feature so many ot... / Continue →

    Because who hasn't dreamed of pretending they're banging Headmistress McGonagall or Snape at Hogwarts, this is the Harry Potter themed suite at the Georgian House Hotel in London. It costs £249 (~$400) a night, which is a small price to pay for getting to put on your robe and ... / Continue →
