    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 stunning Calvin & Hobbes time-traveling dinosaur scene that artist and mother Laura Hartrich of Etsy store Tiny Scissor Times embroidered for her son's birthday. It is most impressive. You know, when I was in middle school my mom embroidered my initials into the b... / 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 →

    Want to make your own USB Hub Monster? It doesn't look very hard. You just take a regular hub, add a bunch of USB cables with armature wire taped to them, and then tear up the college graduation gown you keep in the closet but break out every year during graduation and wear t... / Continue →
