    Because who has the patience for a human waiter to walk your food out to you (what is this, the 1900's? I had sex with a hologram before work this morning), the C One Espresso Cafe in New Zealand will start delivering sliders and fries in pneumatic tubes, straight to your tabl... / Continue →

    The water's brown -- I should taste it. Note: My internet went out so now I'm at the library which I hate doing because this is way less a place of learning and way more a place where bums sleep during the day before going out at night to be creepy. Because apparently real fr... / Continue →

    This is a photo of a pike that died trying to swallow a zander fish almost as big as it is. Like a middle school cafeteria lady once told me after I couldn't finish all the lasagna I'd asked for, "Your eyes must be bigger than your stomach." Oh yeah? If my eyes are really bi... / Continue →

    This is the preserved foot of a Moa, a large flightless bird native to New Zealand that went extinct around 1500. It looks like a dinosaur foot. That's what I like so much about it. If I had to pick the one thing that I like the most about this foot it's that it looks like a... / Continue →

    Because it was only a matter of time with all the Middle Earth mania sweeping the country, New Zealand has just opened a Hobbit themed Green Dragon pub near Matamata. I bet it'll be successful. Hell, I'd drink there. "And get kicked out." That's what you think! 86 me, I da... / Continue →

    Because The Lord of the Rings officially put New Zealand on the map (it was seriously just ocean before), everyone in the country is popping an insane amount of boners over the release of The Hobbit. And to prove their raging fandom, here's a video of a New Zealand weatherman ... / Continue →

    Hey, lady on the left -- you picked THE WRONG F***ING FLIGHT. As a cross-promotion for the Hobbit movie coming out and tourism to New Zealand where it was filmed, Weta Workshop teamed up with Air New Zealand to produce this Hobbit themed airplane safety video to show before ta... / Continue →

    The New Zealand mint is set to release sets of The Hobbit themed coins and stamps to celebrate...I dunno, making money off all the fans who will buy them. Suckers! The gold coins cost $3,700 ($11,000 for the three coin set), the silver 8 coin set costs $890, and the doodoo br... / Continue →

    Starting to smoke pot regularly before you're 18 may be linked to a permanent decrease in adult IQ, according to a recent study performed in New Zealand. Truthfully, you probably shouldn't be REGULARLY smoking too much reefer before you graduate high school anyways. What are ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of brobros drifting their trikes/Big Wheels down steep hills in New Zealand. Sometimes with traffic coming. Plus the dude in the front doesn't even wear shoes or a helmet, so you know he doesn't give two dicks about living. A hard-ass we call guys ... / Continue →

    Remember Zelda violin girl? Well she's back, this time with a Lord of the Rings medley shot in the hills of New Zealand overlooking the ocean. She's not as animated as she was last time, but still very, VERY animated. Like, more than any Pixar movie. Hit the jump for high p... / Continue →

    Because you're a commenter on the internet, I should probably already assume you're an expert on everything and have known the giant weta of New Zealand is the world's heaviest insect for quite some time. "It's true, we used to catch them on family vacation." YOU ARE A DIRTY ... / Continue →

    Note: VERY worthwhile video of the dragon-action after the jump. Did you know there was a 'How to Drain Your Dragon' stage show? I did not. Usually I just pee on the floor while trying to crane my neck to see over the urinal divider and compare myself to the guy next to me. ... / Continue →

    'Big Trouble In Little China' screencaps: never not appropriate. So apparently New Zealand (NOT Polish) truck driver Steven McCormack fell between the cabin and trailer of his rig during an inspection, landing on the nozzle of a compressed air hose, which subsequently pierced ... / Continue →

    New Zealand has a military?! After persistent freedom of information requests, the New Zealand military has decided to release more than 2,000 pages of previously confidential files documenting alien/UFO sightings. Mostly by crazy people. An example: A man who in 1995 met t... / Continue →

    Yelling, as you may well know, is a great way to get your point across. And capitalization is yelling's written equivalent. Don't believe me? LET'S TAKE THIS OUTSIDE! An accountant in NZ has been awarded $17,000 NZD for unfair dismissal after her boss fired her without warn... / Continue →

    An ad agency in New Zealand made a series of billboards that remind drivers to slow down and "drive to the conditions" during the rainy season. The billboards, which feature a young person's face, start bleeding whenever it rains. "The advertising agency that came up with t... / Continue →

    This is a set of print ads run by a New Zealand cable channel advertising its upcoming showing of Aliens vs. Predator. As you can see (if Geekologie hasn't burnt out your retinas yet) they feature an Alien vs. Predator playing together civilly. This one is chess, but hit the ... / Continue →
