    This is a video of Lottie the African Grey impersonating Sean Connery's version of James Bond. Plus whistles a little bit of the James Bond theme. Then sort of clicks and squeaks and coos and whatever the hell else because it's a bird and birds make weird noises. I have a fr... / Continue →

    This is a video of Pierce Brosnan and Jimmy Fallon playing Goldeneye on Nintendo 64. They both suck horribly. I could easily take them both, even if they played as Oddjob and I set my health bonus to -10 (any shot fatal). You know how many hours I logged in high school playi... / Continue →

    This is a pool built by Agor Engineering that has a wooden floor that can be raised and lowered hydraulically (previously: these concrete ones). You can adjust the height too, so if you just want to sit in tit-deep water and sip cocktails, you can do that. Or you can make it... / Continue →

    Two researchers recently read Ian Fleming's 14 original James Bond stories to study Bond's drinking habits. What they found was that 007 could very well be on his way to an early, alcohol-related death. You know, provided an evil villain doesn't get him first. Because I woul... / Continue →

    This is the 700-year old bronze ring unearthed in Bulgaria (two Bulgaria posts in a row, wild!) that archaeologists suspect was used for covert political murders using some form of liquid poison inside. How James Bond-y. "It's a unique ring," [archaeologist Bonnie] Petrunova ... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D printed replica of a remote mine from the Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye 007. It has magnets in the back so it can be stuck to metal surfaces and it has light-up LEDs and a beeper when activated. Man, GoldenEye on the N64 really brings back memories. Mostly of h... / Continue →

    I swear I saw this or something like it years ago but that could just be my brain playing tricks on me because when you have a brain that operates this poorly, a lot of weird thing happen. I put a box of cereal in the refrigerator this morning -- it's getting bad. This a shot... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of AUTONOMOUS quadrocopters from University of Pennsylvania's GRASP Lab playing the iconic James Bond theme. It takes them a while to get going, but by the end, oh boy -- by the end it still sucks pretty hard. Flying robot quadrotors perform the Jam... / Continue →

    Apparently Hidden Water Pools have been around for a couple years but the last time I went to the novelty pool store was never so I'm sure you can understand how I might have missed them. Basically they're pools with a giant pneumatic bottom that is slowly raised to become a p... / Continue →

    Oh God, the GW has gone and waded past the buoys marking the shallow end and is posting pictures of bushes again -- and not the good kind. Oh ye of little faith, you know I wouldn't do that to you (yes, yes I 100% would and not feel bad about it either). You see, that ain't n... / Continue →

    The Sap Cap is no ordinary headwear. Oh no, the baseball hat actually has a pocket of "unique impact material that is 110% the density of lead and will not rust" sewn into the back. Granted it's no Oddjob razor hat, but may do in a pinch (also: your clumsy ass would probably ... / Continue →
