    This is a video of a girl performing the Super Mario theme on a sheng, an ancient Chinese instrument that dates back as far as 1100 BC. It sounds like it was MADE to perform the theme. It wasn't though, because the Super Mario theme didn't exist until 1985. That's a 3,085 ye... / Continue →

    This is the Big Lebowski rug made by Etsy seller OldTymeNotions. I would have a hard time putting my feet on that. My lips, no problem. You want it, I want it, it costs $800 so neither one of us is going to get it. You like how I haven't made a 'tying the room together' ref... / Continue →

    This is the lion sculpture made entirely out of old shredded tires spotted (or possibly just stolen somewhere else off the internet) by Redditor m1keyth. I think it's somewhere in the UK, but it could be in the park by my apartment but I wouldn't know because I never leave. I... / Continue →

    This is a shot of earth as seen from the Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn some 900-million miles away. OH SHIT IS THAT AN ALIEN SPACESHIP POINTED AT US? Earth rarely shows up in Cassini's images because from the spacecraft's perspective, our planet is usually too close to... / Continue →

    This is the Star Trek Into Darkness movie poster eye makeup painted by makeup artist Sahily. It kind of reminds me of a Borg eye. You know what I want painted on my eyelids? I want to write 'LOVE YOU' like that one chick (links to picture of her) in Indiana Jones' Archaeolog... / Continue →

    Because there are Hobbit fans out there with more money than they know what to do with, Weta Workshop is releasing $9,900 replicas of the Orcrist 'goblin cleaver' of Thorin Oakenshield. A lot of money, I know, but from the product description it sounds worth every penny. Or... / Continue →

    This is cosplayer Sasha Trabane sporting a TARDIS dress with the TARDIS interior cleverly painted by Andy Coyle in between the pleats. Is that the correct terminology -- pleats? Despite what I may have lead you to believe in the past, I'm not actually an expert on women's fas... / Continue →

    This is 'Venus', the aluminum superyacht designed by Steve Jobs over the last few years of his life. It's super, and it's a yacht. Construction was just recently finished, and the boat was christened 'Venus' during a ceremony with Jobs' family present. Admittedly, it does ki... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for the full-res version, HERE for a worthwhile closeup, HERE for another, equally amazing example. Iridescent rainbow clouds: do they rain gold coins? No, not even the ones with chocolate inside. Disappointing, I know. Also: my life. God, can you tell I'm... / Continue →
