    Ninety cows busting serious ass in a cow shed in Germany caused the shed to explode after a static discharge ignited the methane gas, starting a fire that damaged the roof and caused one cow to require treatment for a burn. When reached for comment, every single cow vehemently... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Not on your lunch break. Seen here looking how I felt after Thanksgiving, a dead sperm whale's stomach explodes as some poor bastard pokes it with a knife. The explosion was caused by the build-up of gases in the stomach after the whale died (of natural causes). Can ... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Indiana of a semi truck that was forced off the interstate by a merging car (LEARN HOW TO F***ING DRIVE) and had no other choice but to CATCH SOME SERIOUS AIR AND EXPLODE. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured or I probably wouldn't be posting thi... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D printed replica of a remote mine from the Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye 007. It has magnets in the back so it can be stuck to metal surfaces and it has light-up LEDs and a beeper when activated. Man, GoldenEye on the N64 really brings back memories. Mostly of h... / Continue →

    I've used tons of terrible screencaps on Geekologie, and this one is certainly no exception. I had the choice of either using one of the CD just spinning, or after the explosion, and I chose neither of those and went with a really blurry one from during the ACTUAL explosion. ... / Continue →

    Meet Ricardo Fuentes of Mexico City. Ricardo recently pulled several of his coworkers to safety after a methane explosion at the state-run Pemex oil headquarters killed 37 others. When reached for comment why he was unable to save more lives, Ricardo had this to say, "I'm not... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a nuclear explosion less than a millisecond after detonation, taken using a magical camera. Well, it's not really magic, I just don't understand how it works so that MAKES it magic. Same goes for magnets and microwaves. It's all little wizards as far as I'm... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a $3-million, 328-foot wind turbine in North Ayrshire, Scotland trying to cope with hurricane winds. Obviously, it coped poorly. Like me in high school getting called a dork all the time. Which brings up an important topic: bullying. Listen up kids, I w... / Continue →

    This is a 1,000 popsicle stick stickbomb going off. I swear I posted another one on Geekologie before, but I couldn't find it (UPDATE: Found it. More sticks, but less powerful). Anyway, this thing is crazy -- it looks like a frenzied snake when it's going off. Geez, who kne... / Continue →

    This is a series of time-lapse videos created by stitching together 14-years of high-res Hubble Space Telescope images to show the movement of stellar jets from young stars over that period. What's a stellar jet? I'm partial to the SR-71 Blackbird! Fine, FINE -- some actual ... / Continue →

    This is the remote-controlled Digger D-3 "flail tank". It's the latest and greatest (read: explosive-proof) of Digger mine-detonators, which have been around since WWII. Basically, it's steered around on the battlefield like a giant R/C car tank while it wails on the ground ... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what the blast from a tank looks like in slow-motion? Well rest easy, Admiral Inquisitive, because that's exactly what this is. Unless I embedded the wrong video, in which case it might be one of me with a grocery bag over my head ranting about trolls and how I wa... / Continue →

    Pouring gas in a Super Soaker and adding a flame to the nozzle isn't actually a new idea by any means, but it's still fun to watch. Especially when it was lovingly constructed by Geekologie Readers. *sniff* Sorry, I'm getting a little choked up. You guys just make me so damn... / Continue →

    The Indian Space Research Organisation really is based in Bangalore, I wasn't being funny. Ever actually. One time I thought I was being funny but it turns out everybody was laughing because my pants were torn in the back and my b-hole was peepin'. True story :( Here's a f... / Continue →

    WARNING: Picture after the jump is graphic on account of one of the bloodiest ears I've ever seen. "Eh, I've seen bloodier." Good for you. A Texas man was unseriously injured after his Motorola Droid exploded in his ear after ending a call. TOLD YA'LL YOU CAN'T TRUST THOSE ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a tower demolition gone wrong at the Mad River Power Plant in Ohio. Oh boy, if that river was mad before it must be really fuming now. Rage, little river, RAAAAAAAAAGE!! The planned demolition of the Ohio Edison tower in Ohio in the US went wrong aft... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the sun's most violent eruption in 15 years (possibly because that comet didn't agree with him), which happened just a few days ago on April 12th and 13th. Amazingly, we all didn't die. Well at least I didn't, I haven't actually left the apartment since M... / Continue →

    Finally, hand grenade oil lamps. Available with gold, silver and natural finishes, each grenade will set you back $65 ($55 for natural), and possibly on fire. Alternatively, go to an army surplus store and buy a decommissioned grenade for $5-$10 and make your own. But do not... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what an exploded Nintendo DSi XL would look like? Me neither. But here it is anyway, so you might as well take a look so you have something to talk about during your lunch break. Me? I'm gonna stand by the soda machine and brag about my penis. The usual. Video... / Continue →

    Pacman, no longer content with just eating his enemies, is now equipped to blow the shit out of them. And I'm not talking about in a gas station bathroom either, although you have to admit he does have a pretty mouth. Uncle Sam Sticks It to The Terrorists with the Pacman Gr... / Continue →
