    To celebrate the 25th anniversary of handheld console, The Fine Brothers gave a bunch of kids Game Boys and asked them what they thought of them. SPOILER: Not impressed. So not impressed some of them can't even understand how people could have possibly enjoyed playing with th... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a trendy hairstyle in Japan that makes your head look like a tomato. Like, this seriously isn't the only chick who's ever gotten it. There's even a NAME for it. Names make things real. *turns off lights in bathroom* Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary! ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some high school Pokemon trainer asking a girl out to prom during lunch. He made up a poem that goes, "Charmeleon is red, Squirtle is blue, prom is coming up, and I choose you." Amazingly, she accepts his invitation instead of laughing in his face and getti... / Continue →

    Don't worry, I just punched myself in the neck for that whole 'you glow girl' thing. I deserved it. And probably much worse. Because we live in the future, and the future shines like the lens flare in a new Star Trek movie, Mattel is releasing a $50(!) Barbie with an interac... / Continue →

    Because kids love experimenting in the dumbest ways, a group of fourth and fifth graders in South Carolina were recently caught smoking and snorting Fun-Dip powder and crushed up Smarties at school to create "smoke". What a bunch of morons. "Says the guy who's snorted salt an... / Continue →

    This is a retired LEGO injection mold that pumped out 120-million six-stud bricks over its lifetime. That's a serious work ethic. LEGO molds these days? They come fresh out of school and expect some cushy job to just be handed to them, then get all pissy when it doesn't happ... / Continue →

    The Vaportini is a $35 device used to vaporize alcohol, after which it can be inhaled into the lungs and the effects of intoxication felt much more quickly than traditional oral or buttchugging methods. Obviously, lawmakers are terrified a bunch of kids are going to inhale the... / Continue →

    A 16-year old girl and her 15-year old BFF (and future cellmate) used prescription sleeping pills to lace the milkshakes of the 16-year old's parents so they would fall asleep and the girls could use the internet after their 10PM 'no internet use' curfew. Presumably to webcam ... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone who's worn an eyepatch for a week straight pretending to be a pirate, doctors in Australia are now claiming a haircut that covers one of your eyes makes that eye lazy because it doesn't do anything but stare at your stupid hair all day lon... / Continue →

    OMG we're so embarrassed -- let's eat our hands! This is a video of some guy (he says he's a student but I suspect he's a prowler) traveling around a highschool asking some reaaaaaaaally basic trivia questions and all the kids getting them wrong. It's depressing. The though... / Continue →

    I can see your shitter bro -- close the bathroom door next time! This is a painful to watch staged video of a guy showing his daughter a LP record (a yellow see-thru one for some reason) for the first time in her 13 years of constantly texting existence. It...is cringe-worth... / Continue →

    This is a shot of some Reddit user's uncle's homemade Star Trek mailbox. It's solar powered so it lights up at night to attract highschoolers with bats. I mean, I'd like to THINK they wouldn't smash it, but they would smash it. And if he rebuilt it, they would smash it again... / Continue →

    Children: they like to hurt each other. I remember having rock fights when I was a kid, but that was back in the stone ages (rock joke!). Now kids have electronics, and, FINALLY, a realistic-looking and functional taser toy. That's right, it actually shocks. Some children m... / Continue →

    Note: Full-size shot HERE in case you're looking for a new wallpaper. So apparently a revamped Thundercats is coming back to television, and let me tell you: Lion-O looks like some sort of confused emo-anime caricature of his former self. Battle Cat will never let you ride hi... / Continue →

    This is a proposed warning to print in the front of science textbooks to remind children to take their educations seriously. Because, let's not kid ourselves -- nobody wants to be left out of the dino rodeo. Me most of all. Unfortunately, like learning to tie my own shoes or... / Continue →

    This is a little video of a group of French [edit: French-Canadian] kids being handed pieces of old technology from the past 30 years and trying to determine what the hell they are. Objects include a Game Boy, old Coleco Vision cartridge, 8-track player, record player, floppy ... / Continue →

    Word Lens is a $5 iPhone app that provides a streaming translation of whatever you're pointing your phone at (i.e. road signs, menus, etc). It's pretty much the technology of the future because, let's not kid ourselves, no child born after 2000 will bother learning any languag... / Continue →

    This is horribly crappy camera-phone video of a teacher going nuts on some high school students and eventually throwing chairs, including one through a window. You don't actually see too much on account of the camera-phoner sucking 200% at life AND videography, but you can cer... / Continue →
