    British man John Bitmead spent over 1,000 hours and £4,000 (~$6,500) building a street-legal version of a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe car. Why? I'm not sure, apparently he doesn't share the same dream as you and I. "Which is?" A Flintstones-mobile! Allegedly the gas-powered ca... / Continue →

    This is some dash-cam footage from (where else?) Russia of a Subaru that loses control while passing another car on an icy road and does a 360-degree spin before landing perfectly in the lane and driving off like nothing happened. Which makes me wonder -- was the spin really u... / Continue →

    You know what separates the men from the boys? Pubic hair. I'm serious, I think that's it. This is a video of Garret MacNamara risking getting deep-sixed by a 90-footer to set a record for the largest wave surfed, breaking Mike Parsons' 2008 record of 77-feet. Impressive, G... / Continue →

    Inb4 "that looks like a [some animal]'s penis". This is a video demonstration of Norway's new Naval Strike (Magic) Missile. The shakiness made me kinda woozy, but it's worth checking out if you've got the stomach. Me? I've got that B-U-T-T-Z. *booty poppin'* The video fol... / Continue →

    This is a life-size WALL-E model made entirely out of scrap metal. If we were in a fight, I would definitely be going for that Adam's apple. Oooooooor in the opposite direction as fast as I can (I'm a sissy-boy). SCRAP-E here is for sale if you're interested (I know you're n... / Continue →

    Ladies: they wear makeup. Some guys too but that's between me and my eyebrow pencil. Enter makeup handguns from Dutch designer Ted Noten (NOT Nugent). They don't pack heat, but they do pack a bunch of overpriced garbage. Plus -- PLUS -- you might get shot just because you w... / Continue →

    DOOOOOOOOOOOO IT! 3-D illusion artist Erik Johansson (not to be confused with Edward Mueller or Julian Beever, who do the same thing) painted this illusion in Stockholm at Sergels torg. It's called 'Mind your step', and appears (from a single angle anyway) to be...A PIT OF DE... / Continue →

    Give it to me straight -- is it a love doll or not? Did anybody see the new Pirates movie over the weekend? I honestly meant to. Well, at least before the 3rd one came out and gobbled so much Kraken peen. I guess you could say I jumped ship on the franchise after that turd.... / Continue →

    Remember the guy that built the machete-shooting slingshot? This is him. It's not a twin or just a brother that looks similar, it's actually the same guy. And now he's back with a steel ball-shooting slingshot Gatling gun. It looks pretty fierce. Granted not as fierce as t... / Continue →

    This is a picture of someone who's been vacuum-packed. Sounds freaky deaky, I know. And that's because it is freaky deaky. Apparently people like the way it feels. See? Those frozen chicken cutlets don't have it so bad after all! There's a video of a human vacuum-packing ... / Continue →

    And not just because you're grandma doesn't own a quadricycle, but it's probably best she not do any pedaling considering her crystalline hips and all. So, yeah, the BigDog Quadricycle: a bike that won't hesitate to tear your balls to shreds and ride over them if you ever get ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy about to set his parents' living room ablaze with his homemade flamethrowing trombone (don't be jealous, Lady GaGa!). And yes, from now on he will be known as the flameboner. Also, the guy in the marching band that set all the baton twirlers on fir... / Continue →

    This is a video of a man throwing a giant brick into a running washing machine. Can you guess what happens? If you answered, "it eats the brick and turns into a monster", congratulations, you might be five. Just watch the video. Then write a letter to Consumer Reports calli... / Continue →

    This is an Optimus Prime statue spotted at the site of the 2008 Beijing Olympics aquatic center. He stands life-size and was built entirely out of 10,108 scrap car parts. How tall is life-size? Try 32-feet. Sure you could argue that's not Optimus' actual height, but then I'... / Continue →

    Jeff King and Chad Knight went and turned an iPad into a skateboard. But will it shred? You're gonna have to watch to find out! Or just keep reading. No, no it will not. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because MADD likes it that way. This is a video of a woman leaving the Dallas-Forth Worth International Airport without paying the toll. I don't want to ruin it for you, but suffice it to say she leaves the airport the way you're supposed to: fly... / Continue →

    Some guy went and built a full-scale functional replica of Batman's Batpod (great linking, GW!) from The Dark Knight and is selling the thing on eBay starting at a cool $100K. I want it. Like, badly. So badly I'm even considering selling an organ. *STAB* One of yours. Th... / Continue →

    I'm taking credit for the double entendre in the title even though I didn't mean to do it. Sometimes stuff like that just happens WHEN YOU'RE A LEVEL 80 BLOGGER! The Geekologie Writer uses Words of Awesomeness. It's super effective! Anyway, this is a short video of a little... / Continue →

    Not to be a doubting GW or anything, but if you're gonna claim something's real, how about some photos instead of renderings? Hell, even a mediocre Photoshop job would help. Also, a deep tissue massage (I'll swear anything is real if you can make the pain go away). Is it p... / Continue →
