    Researchers at the University of Virgina (dammit, Wahoos!) have built a robot that mimics the swimming movement of a manta ray. Why? No GOOD reason, I can tell you that right now. Also, who killed Kennedy. Two words: the Russians. "Nope." Space aliens? "Now you're just g... / Continue →

    This is a man wearing a sealed fishbowl over his head and breathing out of some sort of homemade respirator. Why? The same reason men do anything -- to gain the attention of the opposite sex. Just look at those two ladies in the picture. You know what they're thinking? I'm... / Continue →

    Note: Consider this a sort of retroactive 'picture is graphic' warning. I just...wow. I mean, shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Brobro better pray the faux toughguy look is enough to keep him out of a fight, because he takes one punch to the face and he's losing both of those f***ing ... / Continue →

    This is a conceptual chalkboard eraser that sucks in the dust from the board and makes new pieces of chalk with it. No clue how much dust it takes to actually create a fresh stick, but my guess is at least twice what it'd collect in a lifetime. As you erase the board, the Cha... / Continue →

    This is a boat made out of a freestanding hammock. Why you'd want to do that is beyond me, but I also used to have a friend that would microwave beer because he liked it warm, so I've basically stopped asking questions. Still, if Rambo there in the pic is any indication of ho... / Continue →

    Seen here learning the first lesson of BASE jumping (you actually have to jump) the hard way, Paraswift the robot falls from the side of a building. Hopefully to its death (but I'll settle for a maiming). The Paraswift uses a low pressure vortex that lets it stick to a smooth... / Continue →

    This is a video of some nimrod drifting his (possibly kit) Cobra around a load-bearing pole in his basement. Or...something. I actually don't know what I just watched. What I do know is I was hoping it would end in carbon monoxide poisoning. Hit the jump for your RDA of bur... / Continue →

    Um, all soda cans are spray cans if you shake them first. Because tilting a can back/not poking your eyes out with a straw takes skill and dexterity that today's youth are lacking, soda is now available in spray-cans. Think spray-cheese, but then think soda. Then think both ... / Continue →

    Everbloom, a Night Elf Restoration Druid playing on World of Warcraft's Feathermoon server, managed to top out their stats at level 85 with only one quest AND NOT A SINGLE KILL. WoW. Get it?! Me neither, I think I took triple my meds this morning! All the player did do to r... / Continue →

    A mile? That's not even scraping the sky anymore -- that's an open-palm grope! Because building a tower taller your neighbor's is making a comeback in proving your superiority (God, whatever happened to a good ol' fashioned pissing contest?!), Saudi Arabia plans on building... / Continue →

    Well folks, don't bother marking your calendars, because February 10, 2012 is the date you can go stuff another $16 in George Lucas' moneygrubbing pocket to see Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3-D. If you're lucky, maybe on the way to the local cineplex you'll have ... / Continue →

    West Coast Customs teamed up with Monster Cables (WTF?!) to produce a TRON-themed Audi R8 because -- well -- I don't know why. Something about poor decision making and overpriced wires. The car itself is an Audi R8, a car whose electric version has graced the digital page... / Continue →

    Suckle that teat much longer and you're gonna inhale a nipple! Because knowing when to stop doesn't exist in the American business model, Mattel is releasing a series of 'Angry Birds' themed games later this year. This is 'Angry Birds: Knock on Wood', a $15 plastic playset in... / Continue →

    This is a $279 carbon fiber toilet seat. If you actually need a carbon fiber toilet seat I'd go ahead and add "shed some serious lb's" to your list of new year's resolutions. Of course, if you just want one because you're rich and already have everything else, I can and will... / Continue →

    This is a sad video of two guys racing across the country from San Francisco to New York entirely in Google Street View (presumably because neither has a license). How long does it take? Try 90 hours and 104,000 clicks. Thank God they sped up the video, amirite?! I'm not, I... / Continue →

    Because finding a rich person with class is like finding a bum with clean underwear that toots diamond dust, there are now ATMs that dispense gold bars. Abu Dhabi's top hotel is upping the ante in the race for Gulf glitz: adding a gold-dispensing machine. The ATM-style kiosk... / Continue →

    As a man who has never, and probably will never, see a woman's personals, I can't say one way or the other if the G-Point (instead of spot, get it?) mouse actually does look like a female's nether-region when viewed from above. I do know it looks like a futuristic pool float f... / Continue →

    Blood Energy Potion is a $6 energy drink (availableJanuary 2010) that was made to look -- and have the same nutritional value -- of real blood. That's pretty gross. "The fruit punch flavor packs 4 hours of energy along with iron, protein, and electrolytes. Not only does Blo... / Continue →

    Some idiot moron, in an effort to become the world's biggest failure at life, used 662,258 text messages on his iPhone in a month. Plus the jerkbag got the 12,301 page itemized bill sent to him, so he doesn't even care about trees. I did the math, and it comes out to sending ... / Continue →
