    This is a little animated gif of a robot with laser-eyes wielding a missile atop a unicorn trampling a Smurf village. There is nothing okay about that. As a matter of fact, I hate everything about it except the unicorn and the mushrooms. The rest of it can all go to hell and... / Continue →

    The Air Force has been tooting their own horn after recently shooting down a ballistic missile with a plane-mounted laser-pewer. That's cool, but I've been able to do the same thing for years with my eyeballs. OH -- OH -- DON'T MAKE ME TAKE OFF THESE OAKLEYS! The plane uses ... / Continue →

    I have no idea what video game that's supposed to be but I'm sure it's a classic. Miner 2049'er maybe? You've got to admit they look kind of similar if you cross your eyes and shake your head! Whatever it is, artist Brock Davis is responsible. Hit the jump to see his other ... / Continue →

    This is by far the most painful advertisement for exploding projectiles I've ever seen. Apparently Israeli missile-maker Rafael thought it would be a good idea to feature a traditional Bollywood song and dance number to drum up some incendiary business in India. They played t... / Continue →

    The Pentagon is tossing $22 million at developing guided bullet technology that would enable a bullet to change course midflight because it wasn't shot right first in the first place, the wind changed, or the head you were aiming at moved. *closing blinds* Greeeaaaaat. Darpa... / Continue →
