    This is a photographic series by Malaysian photographer Zahir Batin of clone trooper toys doing their thing in real life. It's reminiscent of this photo series of how stormtroopers spend their day off. If I was a clone trooper, you know what I would do in my spare time? Kill... / Continue →

    This is 'The Dark Side Of The Covers', a series by Flickr user Harvezt imagining what the opposite side of an album cover might look like. Sort of like, a shot taken from the OTHER SIDE of the subject. Does that make sense? I suck at explaining things. Just go look at all t... / Continue →

    This is a series of children's medical helmets painted by artist Paula Strawn to look cooler than the plain white they come in. They almost make me wish I had to wear a medical helmet. I don't though. "Then what's that on your head?" Oh this? This is a CRASH helmet. "And ... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the Caterpillar P5000 Power Loader costume from the original Aliens movie that father Carsten Riewe built for him and his daughter (previously: this one). It took him 100 hours to complete. That's a lot of time hanging out in the garage. Me? I love ... / Continue →

    Meet drummer Jason Barnes. Jason lost part of his right arm in an accident, so Georgia Tech professor Gil Weinberg built him robotic prosthesis so he could still drum his face off and become a rock star. Hell, I haven't even heard him play yet and I'd still throw my bra at hi... / Continue →

    Remember that Barbie doll artist Nickolay Lamm made using the Center for Disease Control's actual average measurements for a 19-year old girl? Well now he's back with a crowdfunding project to manufacture a line of realistic bodied Lammily dolls. Annnnnnnd he already met doub... / Continue →

    This is a video of a crow (a member of the Corvus genus, which includes ravens) solving a complex 8-step puzzle in order to grab himself a treat. Apparently members of the Corvus genus are particularly smart, which I already knew because of that Edgar Allen Poe poem where the ... / Continue →

    This is the $3,500 Medieval Castle Murphy bed made and sold by Etsy shop TinyTownStudios (who also make a bunch of cool pirate treehouses). The drawbridge lowers to reveal a bed. Unfortunately, it's only a single size bed, which is weird because you have a MEDIEVAL CASTLE IN ... / Continue →

    Well, the football season is over and the Redskins lost -- AGAIN. We came close though. "You only won three games." I'm not even sure if we should be considered a professional team anymore. Maybe a couple years of arena football and we can come back. This is a series of fo... / Continue →

    This Sunday The Simpsons will pay tribute to retiring Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki with a brief sequence of Homer drunkenly stumbling past some of Studio Ghibli's most famous works. Have you ever seen Grave of the Fireflies? It wasn't directed by Miyazaki but it's definit... / Continue →

    These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most... / Continue →

    This is Paralympian Josh Sundquist's 2013 Halloween costume (I actually posted his Christmas Story leg lamp costume last year). Josh lost his left leg to cancer when he was nine, but hasn't let that stop him from accomplishing more in the last 20 years than I could in a dozen ... / Continue →

    This is Sebastian Bieniek's series 'Doubleface', featuring a girl who draws creepy looking faces on the side of her own. Could you imagine showing up for a first date with this girl? I mean, how could you not fall in love at first sight? She's the total package -- hair, eyes... / Continue →

    As part of its 11th series of blind-bagged minifigs, LEGO has introduced a female scientist. Apparently it's a big deal because female minifigs in the sciences have been fairly limited in the past and included little more than an astronaut and surgeon. The scientist comes com... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little puffer fish making an underwater crop (technically sand) circle. Presumably to attract a mate. Admittedly, I'm not even that into fish but I'd still take him on a date based on his artistry alone. What do you say, little guy -- me, you, a nice coz... / Continue →

    This picture looks like four different photos, right? Well it's not, it's actually just one carefully constructed scene created and photographed by artist Bela Borsodi. How about that! I wouldn't have believed it either if there wasn't a shot from a different perspective and... / Continue →

    This is Sun Jifa, a Chinese farmer who lost both his hands and, forced to make the decision between saving for expensive prosthetics from the hospital or using barely functioning cheap ones, decided to make his own. Now he's building and selling them to other amputees at a ten... / Continue →
