    This is the giant dobsonfly, the current record holder for largest flying aquatic insect. They can measure almost 8.5-inches across. For reference, that is 8-inches entirely too large for my liking. Large enough to cover the face of a human adult, this scary-looking insect i... / Continue →

    This is the 114-foot LEGO tower built in Budapest, Hungary. It beats the previous record holder (that was built by a bunch of schoolchildren) by a little over a foot. What I don't understand is why did they only beat the record by a foot? If I set out to build the world's ta... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of a giant supercell storm in Wyoming. What the hell is a supercell? Well, contrary to what my dick of a roommate tried to convince me, it's not a new efficient battery. He's a filthy liar, so I threw one of his shoes over the balcony while he was in the... / Continue →

    This is a visual comparison of fantasy dragon sizes as compiled by The Daily Dot. As you can see, George R.R. Martin's dragons take the cake. Still, I would have liked to see Falcor, Trogdor and Puff the Magic Dragon on the chart. Man, if I was friends with Puff I would have... / Continue →

    This is an informative video about the largest creatures to ever live on earth, by type (ie. largest arthropod, largest land mammal -- both seen above, largest flying creature, etc.). Did you know the largest arthropod was an 2.5 meter (8.5-foot) millipede-looking beast that w... / Continue →

    A new (but still long dead) t-rex like dinosaur species has been discovered in Utah, leading paleontologists to believe that large, bipedal carnivorous dinos were much more widely distributed than previously thought. Which is great news because no matter where my time machine ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 1:15 scale R/C Airbus A380 taking to the skies at a recent R/C plane show. You know, that seems like it would be a fun thing to attend on a weekend. You know what I attend on weekends? Community service. And not the cool kind like I created a community ... / Continue →

    Apparently the Batmobile monster truck has been out crushing cars since the mid 2000's, but I didn't know about it because the last time I went to a monster truck rally I was twelve. Aaaaaand popped an awkward boner watching Carzilla eat a station wagon and have always been af... / Continue →

    This is a couple seconds of that giant squid video that's supposed to come out later this month. This clip was aired on some morning news program, where Miami correspondent Doug Herpaderp had this to say: "Of course, after yesterday's news of the baby giant squid and this one,... / Continue →

    This is gallery of Middle Earth's Moria faithfully recreated to scale in Minecraft. No clue how long it took, how many people it took, or what they could have accomplished if they were doing something more productive, all I know is it's pretty impressive and I couldn't have do... / Continue →

    This is Claude. Claude is a 15-pound Monster Tasmanian Crab recently caught off the shores of (you'll never guess!) Tasmania that was on his way to an industrial-size steamer before being bought by a British Aquarium for £3,000 (~$4,800). Claude's shell is 15-inches across a... / Continue →

    This is a vest with an integrated 8-inch subwoofer. You know, because carrying a boombox around on your shoulder apparently isn't cool enough anymore. *rambles on about the good old days until you get bored and leave so I can finally strip down to the flesh and drink in peace... / Continue →

    This is an 8-foot, 180-lb Venerator Class Star Destroyer made entirely out of 43,000 LEGO pieces by LEGO-maniac Iomedes. It...would look great in my bedroom. And by bedroom I mean my actual bed because there's noway in hell it would fit anywhere else. "Pfft, you're just sayi... / Continue →

    There's a full moon Saturday and it's gonna appear the largest it has in almost 20 years, and won't happen again until 2029. So yeah, probably a good idea to give it a peep just in case shit hits the fan in the meantime (which it WILL). Also, be sure to tell all your friends ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the world's largest skateboard. How big is the world's largest skateboard? Bigger than a breadbox, smaller than the planet. That should give you a pretty good idea. Did I ever tell you I broke my arm trying to ollie over the recycling bin in my driveway? ... / Continue →

    Panasonic just announced their upcoming line of "ultra-large" (read: f***ing huge) 3-D plasma televisions. They're gonna come in 85, 103 and 152-inch flavors, which I find more than a little annoying considering I just sprung for a 151-incher last year. Typical! The Osaka fi... / Continue →

    Yottabytes, best known for being the only bytes named after a Star Wars character, are large. How large? A quadrillion gigabytes large. Huge byte is huge, needs less teeth. As of 2010, no system has yet achieved one yottabyte of storage. In fact, the combined space of all t... / Continue →

    At first I was gonna warn about the inherent damage to your eyes and neck sitting so close to such a large screen will do, but I've got to admit: chick does look healthy. Or methy, whatever. Hardcore Gaming Girl is Taking it a Bit Far! [walyou] Thanks to Liquid Tension, who ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a 10-foot great white shark that was almost bitten in half by what is believed to be a 20-foot great white -- just five feet short of Jaws and only seven short of my penis. 'It certainly opened up my eyes. I mean the shark that was caught is a substantial ... / Continue →
