    This is Redditor AlexKingshill's friend and the Super Mario 3 World 1 map blanket he spent 6.5 years (over 800 hours) crocheting. The details are most impressive. That was truly a labor of love. I'll give you $26 for it. That might not sound like a lot, but when you conside... / Continue →

    Peaches: they look like butts (but taste way better). And what better way to reinforce that imagery than putting fancy little panties on them? Originally created by a fruit vendor in Nanjing, China, a box of nine pantied peaches sell for around $80. That's almost $10 apiece.... / Continue →

    This is the very impressively constructed music video for metal band Throne's song 'Tharsis Sleeps.' The whole thing was shot frame-by-frame using individually embroidered scenes. That...sounds time consuming. Thankfully, they used a computerized embroidery machine instead o... / Continue →

    This is a video of a woman in her underwear with tape on her boobies so you can't see her nipples trying on different women's fashion pieces each made from a single piece of cut rectangular fabric. A couple of them actually look pretty good. Okay, one of them looks good. "Th... / Continue →

    You know what's a good idea? Looking both ways before crossing a street. You know what's a terrible idea? Developing a robotic cockroach that can climb up pant legs. *scratching* Great, now I'm gonna think I have phantom bugs on me all day. And, God willing, now you will ... / Continue →

    One time I accidentally crossed the streams with some dude at one of those long trough urinals and I think some of his urine splattered on my hand. You know, just FYI. This is a homemade Ghostbusters pillow proton pack lovingly crafted by Etsy seller JezebelRose. It is not t... / Continue →

    The Snazzy Napper is a real-ass product that, despite the name, isn't really very snazzy (Bedazzle that shit, God!). What it is is a piece of cheap fabric you velcro around your head so you can rest in peace (I'll kill you!) while you travel. Did I mention it has a hole for y... / Continue →

    "The Damned" is a $136 piece of bulletproof fabric that was designed to go in your jacket pocket and protect your heart from being penetrated by a bullet. Clever, Mr. Bond, but I only trust my heart to a full flak jacket (and Lipitor). Per a company spokesperson who obviously... / Continue →

    This handsome little devil (he reminds me of myself when I was that age) is LEGO Timothy, and his mom made him that awesome LEGO-inspired blanket with her own two hands. Good lookin', LEGO Timothy's mom! I am a big lego fan who likes to build things every day. Minifigures are... / Continue →

    I've never cooked anything in my life except crystal meth and I ended up blowing up the trailer, but I have eaten things before. Including, and virtually limited to: cereal and pudding. What can I say, I'm a health nut. Anyway, the Useful Towel is a $22 piece of fabric with ... / Continue →

    This 4-piece luggage ensemble by Dutch designer Erik De Nijs forms a comfortable little sofa when you're not dragging it around the airport. Sure it's all mixy-matchy, but maybe Erik is blind and the woman at the fabric store didn't have the heart to tell him he chose four dif... / Continue →

    I don't even know what to say except WTF, HORF and I would totally tape that to my head like a do-rag. Available for $8 on Etsy, this reusable menstrual pad (I can't believe I'm typing this) is perfect for the Pokémon-loving, environmentally friendly chick with unshaven pits ... / Continue →

    Be honest, every single one of you would rock this handbag. I know I would, and I don't give a dang if it clashes with my live bear chaps or not (all man, baby). Available from evilmadscientist as mini and full-size kits ($20 and $25, respectively) you're still gonna have to ... / Continue →

    The PIMPendo is a Nintendo on pimp juice. I suspect it guzzled an entire goblet full. Then puked. Then drank more. Out of a hooker's mouth. That's nasty. This completely refurbished NES system has been pimpified, including added LEDs which make the innards of the system g... / Continue →

    Allegedly David Steele, a pervert, is selling 30 and 58mm lens filters capable of seeing through many kinds of fabric. I've got the feeling they only work with sheer wet t-shirts and fishnets, but whatever: boobs yo, boobs. Each lens costs $200 and purchase includes a free tr... / Continue →

    Scientists at the University of Zurich have developed a material that never gets wet. Even if you play romantic music and kiss it tenderly. The fabric is constructed of polyester fibers that are covered in a layer of 40-nanometer-wide silicone nanofilaments. These nanofilam... / Continue →

    Star Wars sheets: no man's bed is complete without them. I had Dukes of Hazzard sheets growing up, so I think it's about time for some Star Wars action. Sold by Pottery Barn, the set is expensive, but well worth it. Just imagine: a bottle of wine, some aromatic candles, a wh... / Continue →
