    This is a series of pictures created by Redditor nite4awk featuring real-life photographs with Calvin & Hobbs superimposed in. They're beautiful. I can still remember the first Calvin & Hobbes book I got -- it was 'Yukon Ho!' back in the early 90's. Man, those were the days.... / Continue →

    This is a video of ink drops being dropped into water shot at 4k resolution (4,096 × 2,304). I included a diagram after the jump so you can appreciate how big 4k is versus 1080. Sadly, your monitor won't be able to play the video in its native resolution, but if you click the... / Continue →

    This is a fancy wooden NES controller coffee table built by the folks at the Bohemian Workbench (who previously built this one). It's made with a bunch of exotic woods, is Wii compatible, comes with a zapper, and costs $7,200. *coughing up blood* That's a lot of money. "Wai... / Continue →

    This is a real, single photograph of 28 climbers hanging on and around 'Ago del Torrone' in the Alps between Switzerland and Italy. It took over five hours of climbing in freezing temperatures to make the shot a reality, and, obviously, everyone involved is a certifiable crazy... / Continue →

    Note: Seriously, just watch it. Sound effects are fake though. Listen: I know I posted a Curiosity landing video earlier, but that thing looked like watching TV through a slow-moving ceiling fan compared to this one. THIS is a proper 30fps high definition version lovingly cr... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a leopard in South Africa that's suspected of having erythrism, a genetic mutation believed to cause an excess of red pigments, or a deficit of dark ones. "So it's a ginger?" Yeah, it prefers the term strawberry. Erythrism is very unusual in carnivores, a... / Continue →

    Because some of us need constant reminders that the earth is actually a beautiful place and not just a breeding ground for miserable, greedy assholes, here's a short video taken from the International Space Station passing over a very stormy Africa, with the Milky Way serving a... / Continue →

    This is a series of worthwhile time-lapse videos of earth taken from aboard the International Space Station. I...still can't believe that thing's actually up there. The sun either. You can't even see the wires holding it up! "Tell me you're joking." Haha, it's fishing line... / Continue →

    This is a short video (WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN EVEN SHORTER -- skip to 1:30 for the good stuff to start) created from a series of HDR time-lapse photographs by Patryk Kizny called 'The Chapel'. The star of the film is, get this -- an old chapel. One that's falling apart in Pola... / Continue →

    Note: Full-size version HERE and a version with an overlay showing some of the details of the shot HERE. This is a photo depicting a single 24-hour time period over Athens (Greece, NOT Georgia) stitched together from a buttload of shots taken by Chris Kotsiopoulos and render... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the NGC 4452 disk galaxy (which will now be affectionately known as the 'flat-ass' or 'eat a cheeseburger' galaxy) taken by the Hubble Space Telescope from the side. That's why it looks like the way it does. Cause otherwise it would look like a disk. D... / Continue →

    Carved leaf art is exactly what it sounds like: actual leaves carved into art. Or -- OR -- actual art carved into leaves. Either way, my hands are far too shaky to ever attempt anything like this. And that's not just my drinking problem talking, although of course it is beca... / Continue →

    This is a long-exposure shot of an aurora borealis by Ole Christian Salomonsen in Tromsø, Norway. Personally, I think it looks like a giant alien woman in a loose-fitting robe shying away from the camera, but that might just be the weed talking. Ooooor because she's embarras... / Continue →

    This is a series of photographs taken of alcoholic beverages under a microscope. This is tequila, but there are several more of my favorites after the jump. Now I don't know about you, but I'd drink every single one of them. And eat the microscope slides. This one tastes li... / Continue →

    This is a 648 megapixel composite (higher-res version HERE) of the Milky Way created by physicist (and all around badass) Axel Mellinger. Good lookin', Axel. Physicist Axel Mellinger spent nearly two years traveling 26,000 miles across South Africa, Texas and Michigan. What... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of the center of the Milky Way Galaxy rising over Texas from 9:20 PM to 6:43 AM on April 21-22, 2009, during a star party. Now I have no idea what a star party is, but if it's anything like the last bachelor party I went to, I want in. We could eve... / Continue →

    This is a photo of the space shuttle Atlantis and Hubble Space Telescope silhouetted against the sun. It really made me think about stuff. You know, like outerspace and all that. I'm really deep. The exceptionally gifted astrophotographer Thierry Legault captured this stunn... / Continue →

    Jenni Källberg, aka Pixelninja, aka the hottie that made and posed in the two Samus Aran suits, aka my future wife, aka my future ex-wife, is back at it -- this time with a Princess Peach cosplay costume. As you can see, it looks great, and so does Jenni (who is half Swedish ... / Continue →

    In a turn of events that shocked no one, Bigfoot left a message for reporters in the woods claiming the recent pictures of a creature in a freezer, are, in fact, not him. The message, spelled out with carefully arranged arm-length turds, read "that totally wasn't me". Turns... / Continue →

    I love aquariums, they're so relaxing. I used to have one in my bedroom until the sound of it started making me piss the bed. However that may be worth it to have the beauty of an Adana Aqua Forest Aquariums bedside. They're amazing. However due the incredible plantlife con... / Continue →
