    Mmmm, secret ingredients! Pakistan-produced 'Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge' candy bars were recently found to contain more than twice the PPM (parts per million) of lead tolerated by the FDA. Pfft, can you ever really have too much lead? (I pop fishing weights like candy, just ... / Continue →

    #2 like pencils, not #2 like you're gonna go in your jammies when I jump out of your closet tonight. Which I am going to do. You know, or get drunk and pass out on the bus again. I think somebody licked my face last time! Steamy public transportation romance aside, I want n... / Continue →

    What you're looking at is the grave an ancient Roman gladiator. Now I know it may look like he was buried in the world's crappiest paper airplane, but it's actually a lead sarcophagus. And not the kind that makes your pee smell funny. That's asparagus. And Honey Smacks. Fo... / Continue →

    Some girl was on her way to Jerusalem to see where Jesus grew up and hang out with some friends but got the 3rd degree (like burns!) from Israel border security, who ultimately decided the only way in was with three bullets in her Mac. *pew pew pew* goes border security! I we... / Continue →

    A million FPS, is that even possible? Because that's crazy if it is (also, black magical). I'll probably never do anything a million times, let alone in a single second. But regardless, this is a 10:00 video of bullets doing their thing in super slow-motion. There's some pr... / Continue →

    The x-ray umbrella is an umbrella with x-rays all over the damn place. It does NOT allow you to see through a woman's shirt. Unless she's wearing white and it's pouring out, in which case, yes, it does do that. And I've got to tell you: as a guy who's broken his arm twice in... / 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 →

    This robotic fish, which looks like it was made out of precious jewels, isn't, but was actually created to detect pollutants in the earth's oceans. The 1.5 meter long robotic fish each requires about $30,000 to make. Their purpose is to head out into the open water, take in ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a woman who ate a bunch of lead-based paint chips filming a rainbow that appeared in her sprinkler. She's convinced it's a government conspiracy and they're pumping something into our water/oxygen supply to run tests on us. Needless to say, I think she's on... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful stained glass gallery of geekdom. That's Vader there, modeled after a drawing by a 6-year old (seriously). After the jump you'll find all kinds of goodness like Link, Mega Man, Einstein, Pyramid Head from Silent Hill, the electromagnetic spectrum, Spider M... / Continue →

    Reebok has released a line of limited edition Voltron inspired shoes. If you don't know who Voltron is then I don't know if we can be friends anymore. The Voltron Lion Force Pack is a line of shoes "whose colorways correspond to one of the five Voltron robots." Three of them ar... / Continue →
