    UPDATE: Presumably satire. FAKE HAIR, DON'T CARE. Pubic hair, do care -- especially if it's in my fast food. This is a North Korean news report claiming the country made it to the World Cup final against Portugal (because why not lie about everything) after defeating Japan 7... / Continue →

    This is a fake video from HUVrTech featuring Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Tony Hawk and a handful of other celebrities (including Terrell Owens and Moby) lying about riding a real hoverboard. The CG is decent, but the whole thing is impossible to believe. Plus they made the... / Continue →

    Wow, great job on the thighs. This is the 16-foot All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) replica for sale on eBay for £9,800 (~$15,700). The seller advertises it as life-size, but the Star Wars wiki I just checked (I did research for once!) says an AT-ST should stand 8.6-meters (... / Continue →

    Note: This is only a small portion of the graphic, hit the jump to see the whole mile-long thing. This is an infographic featuring 50 things that somebody believes every geek should know. That person is obviously not me, because I don't give a shit if you know all or none of ... / Continue →

    According to a recent experiment conducted by high school math teacher Dan Anderson and his students (arguably the most trustworthy kind of experiment), Double Stuf Oreos are actually only 1.86x stuffed, and Mega Stufs 2.68x stuffed. I don't really have a problem with the Mega... / Continue →

    Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act inquiry filed by Jeffrey Richelson in 2005, the US government has finally gotten around to declassifying documents about Area 51 and its purpose. Obviously, because this is the government we're talking about, they're all filthy lies. Acc... / Continue →

    These are several shots from the People's Park in Luohe, Henan province, China, of the dogs the park uses as permanent stand-ins for the exotic species they claim to keep. Their African Lion is actually a Tibetan mastiff (above), and their wolf and leopard displays are filled ... / Continue →

    This is an old (1957) government propaganda film showing the five men who volunteered to stand under a "low-yield" (two-kiloton) nuclear warhead detonated 10,000 feet above their heads. The video was created to calm the US populous and prove nuclear war is no big deal. The go... / Continue →

    This is a Portal cake that looks like it's falling through a portal thanks to a clever cut and some custom light-up cake plates. You have to admit, it's a pretty smart way to salvage a cake that's fallen on the floor. Me? I would have just slapped another layer of icing on i... / Continue →

    Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov takes insane macro pictures of LIVE ants by spending hours and hours playing with them and posing them to get the perfect shot. I...can't even believe half of them are real. Of course I have zero experience posing ants and have only burnt th... / Continue →

    A man in the Washington, DC area has successfully robbed four banks after slipping tellers a note that says he'll detonate a nuclear weapon if they don't hand over the cash. I dunno, if I were the teller I think I would have at least asked to see it first. No word if the tell... / Continue →

    Because Monster Cables was monopolizing the ridiculously overpriced and under-performing cable market, here's AudioQuest's entry: a 3.3-foot, $1,096 HDMI connector. That's $332/foot! What makes it so special? It's made entirely out of urethras No f***ing clue. Oh, wait: Th... / Continue →

    In other hover-news, this is the $100 Levitron Revolution. It can levitate any object that fits on its hoverdisk and weighs less than 12-ounces. How? Magic magnets WIZAAAAAARDZ! According to the manufacturers, "The Levitron automatically compensates for changes in weight by... / Continue →

    The US government, best known for doing everything in its power keep the general populace in the dark about anything of interest, has issued a statement claiming no knowledge of aliens or any coverups related to extraterrestrial life. Oh, real cool gubment -- LYING STRAIGHT TO... / Continue →

    Last week, a group of "scientists" (and I use the term as loosely as I wear my pants when I want my buttcrack to be peepin' for the ladies) met in Moscow with a mission: to set off and get drunk in the woods for a week away from their wives find the abominable snowman/yeti. An... / Continue →

    Note: Larger picture HERE in case you want to build a similar command center in your apocalyptic bunker. First of all, I'm pretty sure this is all fake/a publicity stunt. But did that stop CBS Los Angeles from running with the story? F*** no. And is it gonna stop me? Nothi... / Continue →

    I'll believe it when it cuts through a glass giant. Astronomers are claiming they've found a planet made entirely of diamond. Interesting, but if you really wanted to capture the public's attention you should have said it was made out of chili cheese fries and has a milkshake... / Continue →

    This is an optical illusion being performed by an overturned trash can casting a shadow on a checkered picnic blanket, making it a far superior magician than you could ever be. That's pretty much all I have to say about this. Kidding, I actually have a grande finale planned. ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res (1600 x 1200) version HERE in case you're convinced there's a stray shadow faux pas somewhere you could spot if the image were just larger. This is a for-really-real picture taken by Frans Lanting in Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. Like, it hasn't been Photosho... / Continue →

    This is a fake-ass video of a whole bunch of those Chuck E Cheese ball pit balls allegedly floating around in mid-air thanks to a giant electromagnetic and some iffy electronics stuffed inside each one. You can send it to your friends telling them it's real if you want, but it... / Continue →
