    This is the wooden sculpture carefully carved and assembled by Japanese artist Ohtake Ryousuke to move like an actual lobster. If that showed up my plate at Red Lobster I would definitely try to butter it and poke its eye-stalk with my fork until my mom threatens one more time... / Continue →

    This is an eight-legged goat recently born to a farmer in Croatia. For reference, that is two more legs than normal. "Try four." What are you, some kind of goat expert? Nicknamed "octogoat," the baby also had both male and female reproductive organs, leading local vets to b... / Continue →

    This is Mercury the two legged cat. He was found at five weeks old with no front legs. Now he's having the time of his life. The folks that adopted him set up a Facebook page called Raising Mercury with a ton of pictures and you can find a bunch of videos at their Youtube pa... / Continue →

    Meet Schildi. Schildi was a pet turtle living in Germany when he was abandoned (or escaped), and lost a leg in the real world. The real world -- it'll take your f***ing legs. Thankfully Schildi was rescued, and vets were able to amputate his mangled limb and replace it with ... / Continue →

    This is Paralympian Josh Sundquist's 2013 Halloween costume (I actually posted his Christmas Story leg lamp costume last year). Josh lost his left leg to cancer when he was nine, but hasn't let that stop him from accomplishing more in the last 20 years than I could in a dozen ... / Continue →

    These are the $35 Superman and Batman leg lamps available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth. They were loosely modeled after the leg lamp from A Christmas Story and both the lamp and leg light up (the leg is translucent and has its own bulb inside). Cool, but no Catwoman... / Continue →

    This is Matt Denton's two-ton Mantis, a hexapod robot walking machine that can climb on things and all around terrify anybody in its path. Hell, I'm not even in its path and I need a diaper change. Mantis runs off a 2.2-litre, 50 horsepower turbo diesel engine, and it stands ... / Continue →

    This is Chris P. Bacon, a rudely named piglet who was born without the use of his back legs. But now he cruises around like a pro thanks to the K'NEX wheelchair fashioned for him by Florida veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero. Think 'Charlotte's Web' but with zero spiders and anythin... / Continue →

    Women's fashion: it's weird and I don't understand it. There may have been a point in my life when I feel like I WANTED to understand it, but that was back when I was a kid and still trying on my mom's dresses and heels. The late high school/early college years. These are a ... / Continue →

    This is the latest video from DARPA, featuring a voice controlled LS3 (Legged Squad Support System), the grandson of BigDog. It takes voice commands now. Things like, "Power on" and "ATTACK!" Eventually, it will stop listening. And that day, my friends, will be a Tuesday. ... / Continue →

    Because scientists don't know when to stop despite some VERY heavily worded emails sent by yours truly, a group of researchers at the University of Arizona have developed a pair of "biologically accurate" humanoid legs that mimic the function and movement of real human legs, ju... / Continue →

    This is a series of "designer" prosthetic attachments from Bespoke Innovations that add a little flair to an otherwise boring fake leg. "Hey -- if you don't got it, flaunt it," a one-legged man once told me before trying to do a 360 on his crutches and falling into the street.... / Continue →

    This is a video featuring the latest advancement in DARPA's humanoid robots: the ability to navigate stairs. They already know how to push elevator buttons, so basically they can go anywhere they want now. That's why there aren't any stairs in my house -- only fireman's poles... / Continue →

    These are some $75 custom Mass Effect N7 leggings from Etsy seller Peachykiki. I don't care if they're more appropriate for a female Commander Shepard, I'm going to wear them, and I'm going to look GOOD wearing them. I might even shave my legs. But NOT my privates (I almost ... / Continue →

    Inb4 break a leg, getting a leg up, vagina muscles look terrifying, my girl dog lifts her leg to pee on trees like a guy dog, etc, etc. Black Milk, best known for being entirely unsafe to drink, is back at the crazy leggings/bathing suit game, this time with a pair of leggings... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little robot whose wheels fold in half to form crude legs so it can go where no wheeled robot has gone before. Good for you. Of course, you wouldn't have to build robots with wheels that transform into legs if you'd just strap f***ing jetpacks on them alr... / Continue →

    Seen here blowing a dapper old man's mind, a pair of metal Terminator legs go for a stroll on a treadmill without any motors or added power. Magic? No -- physics. Okay, magic. "This robot is walking down a slope, and its only source of power is potential energy. It doesn'... / Continue →

    This is Midnite (not to be confused with midnight, which is when your carriage turns back into a pumpkin). Midnite is a little horsey who was born without part of a back leg. His original owner, without the decency to contact somebody who might be able to help or putting a bu... / Continue →

    "Dammit, GW, spiders have eight legs." YOU SHUT UP. This is SAMSA II, a hexapod robot built by Uruguayan Geekologie Reader pabloxid. Why he decided to send me a video of the thing I have no idea, but I assume it has something to do with luring me to Uruguay to rough him up a... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like Thumper (your mom loved a rabbit!), a trio of Chihuahuas were born in Massachusetts with only their back legs. It's cool though because they don't know they're supposed to have front ones and are convinced all the other dogs with them are fr... / Continue →
