    This is a massive gallery of geeky swimsuits and dresses from Black Milk (previous collection HERE). If you can look past the "in desperate need of cheeseburgers and asses" models (and it's easy cause they're f***ing rails!), the designs are actually pretty sweet. Swimsuits a... / Continue →

    Seen here in an artist's rendition (mine -- I'm an artist) of exactly what it'll look like when while in orbit, the European Space Agency's Gaia Spacecraft will rock a 106-CCD sensor, 1-billion pixel "camera" that's over three feet wide (like my ass!) in order to create a 3-D m... / Continue →
