    This is 'Grey Knights', a trailer for 'The Lord Inquisitor', an unofficial Warhammer 40,000 movie that animator Erasmus Brosda has spent the last four years creating. I will watch it. I will watch it, and I will make popcorn. I'm kidding, I don't like popcorn. "Who doesn't ... / Continue →

    This the coffee table that Redditor fightingcrime's father carved into a Risk board. The amazing thing is that when you're not playing risk IT FUNCTIONS AS A NORMAL COFFEE TABLE. "That is not amazing." You live a joyless life. Thanks to BBQ, who loves how that guy has eno... / Continue →

    Two video game medley posts in a row -- things are getting pretty wild in here! I'm joking, I'm so sick and medicated I couldn't get a boner if it was the only thing I had to do to win a lotto jackpot. This is a video of two first-named Joe Jeremiah playing a 9-minute set of ... / Continue →

    This is a video of everybody's favorite nature documentary host David Attenborough narrating a women's Olympic curling match. You know, David Attenborough might actually have my favorite voice of all time. It's so relaxing. Like, if he read me a bedtime story before I KNOW I... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE just in case you have one of those home phones with the giant number buttons made for grandparents. This is a flowchart made by the folks at Silver Oak Online Casino (who surprisingly don't just suggest you only play online poker) of how to pick the p... / Continue →

    This is the robotic air hockey player built by Jose Julio using 3-D printed parts. If I saw this at the arcade I would jam its coin slot with washers then rip one of the guns from Time Crisis loose and smash its brains out. Then beat all the pinball high scores. The robot us... / Continue →

    This is Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise imagined as LEGO mechas controlled by minifigs hidden inside (pictures after the jump) by Flickr user Stormbringer. Good job. Way better than I could have done. I'm only good at three things: bad writing and even worse counting. Kee... / Continue →

    This is the $150,000 Intimidator from McDermott Handcrafted Cues. It started life as an 82-pound piece of solid stainless steel, and 1,862 man hours later, became...this thing. This thing I wouldn't want to see anybody swinging that in a bar fight. Not unless they're on my s... / Continue →

    This is the $13 Star Wars Lightsaber Thumb Wrestling Kit. It comes with two thumb-mounted lightsabers and a book with a bunch of different arenas to do battle in. Unfortunately, I have giant's hands so there's no way my thumbs would fit through those holes. Penis, yes, which... / Continue →

    This is a Harry Potter inspired engagement ring available from Etsy seller houseonhudson. It looks like a golden snitch and is made from silver with a 5mm golden topaz stone as the centerpiece. And since silver isn't gold or platinum and topazes aren't diamonds, it's only $16... / Continue →

    'Send Me To Heaven' is a real Android app (Apple denied it) that measures how high you throw your phone in the air. It's like a game. A game where the equipment costs $400 and breaks every time you don't win. Basically, the best kind of game. S.M.T.H. (Send Me To Heaven) is... / Continue →
