    This is a video of the Ultra Ever-Dry hydrophobic (water repelling) and oleophobic (oil repelling) spray being tested on a variety of surfaces and with different liquids. I know the screencap I used sucks pretty hard, but the video is actually worth a view. That is, if you li... / Continue →

    This is a rarely seen Deepstaria enigmatica jellyfish spotted some 5,000-feet below the ocean's surface by an unmanned sub inspecting a deep-sea drill off the coast of the UK. You've just gotta watch it to appreciate how freaky it is. It looks kinda like...there's a leak in t... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy eating Funyuns and watching a car engine explode during an oil change, all set to Jon Bon Jovi's 'Blaze of Glory'. I read the Youtube comments looking for an explanation, and the consensus is that the explosion wasn't caused by the oil change, but some... / Continue →

    Baconlube, originally speculated to be an April Fool's joke, is now a real $12 bacon-flavored product to smear on your wiener or whatever. Just be careful bedding a hungry girl, or you might pull back a stump. Get it? Because you were licking it off each other's fingers as s... / Continue →

    Shell, a company best known for bending me over at the pump and not giving a shit who sees my exposed ass as they drive by (stop rubbernecking, pervs!), plans to build the world's largest sea vessel, weighing in at over 600,000 metric tons and standing floating almost 500 meter... / Continue →

    Ever wondered how a hummingbird pushes the air around while flying? Me neither. I've always been preoccupied with where my next drink is coming from and whether or not if you jump right before a plummeting elevator hits the ground if you'll survive. SPOILER: Nope (R.I.P. Dav... / Continue →

    FPS as in frames per second, not first person shooter. That wouldn't even make sense, Captain Crazy. Hit the jump to watch the video, it's only 12-seconds long. Then, we'll all gather around the concession stand at the movie theater and complain about how unimpressive it loo... / Continue →

    Oh I'd ride it alright, I'd ride it all. night. long. No, no I wouldn't either. I hate driving after dark and motorcycles make me nervous enough as it is. I would lay with it under a big blue tarp in my parents' driveway though. Built by sculptor Jud Turner, the 'Mortalcy... / Continue →

    It's not actually water, it's mineral oil. Did you know you can submerge computer components in mineral oil (except spinning drives) for liquid cooling? Because you can do that. What you can't do is take a bath with a power supply. Well not a normal person anyway. It's wha... / Continue →

    BP recently admitted to Photoshopping a picture of their Houston-based oil spill command center to make it seem like the workers there don't just play Minesweeper and make dead sea turtle jokes all day. Little did they know. You can't fool the American public. ROFLOL! BP ac... / Continue →

    So some scientists believe that the BP oil spill may be creating a buildup of methane capable of exploding and causing a mass extinction not unlike the Late Paleocene Thermal Maximum that went down 55 million years ago and (arguably) the Permian extinction event from 251 millio... / Continue →

    Note: This picture is small and I had to crop it click HERE to see the sadness in depressing high-resolution. This is a shot of a wave crashing in Orange Beach, Alabama. As you can see, it looks like absolute crap, which really got me thinking: there's probably a lot of whale... / Continue →

    Robots, uncaring how they destroy humanity just as long as they do, have resorted to sabotage in an attempt to pollute the world's oceans and kill off all our mermaids. Not Ariel! Earlier this morning, an undersea robot accidentally bumped into a venting system, which forced ... / Continue →

    Why anybody (except this person) would pay $33 for a 3-liter can of Hello Kitty motor oil is beyond me. Actually, why Hello Kitty motor oil exists in the first place is beyond me. I mean, Hello Kitty fanatics that change their own oil? There can't be more than two one of t... / Continue →

    it's official: Mario is dead and it's all BP's fault. Somebody call Bowser and tell him he can keep the Princess, nobody's coming for her. There, there, Toad, it'll all be okay. No, no it won't either. Which is exactly why I don't feel bad doing this *takes a bite out of To... / Continue →

    There are good ideas and there are great ideas. This is a f***ing terrible one. Nuking the oil leak to cover that shit in rubble and seal it off. Plus birth Godzilla! (which, admittedly, I am for) A plan proposed to detonate a nuke to seal off that troublesome oil well is ... / Continue →

    If it just had a chocolate milk dispenser too I'd move in today. And I'm not just saying that because I live in a van without one and can only make motor oil milk, but Optimus Prime does beg to drink my piss jugs. Picture [imgur] via This car has everything we need [digg] Th... / Continue →

    Castrol, best known for keeping my ride lubed (double entendre!), went and created a robot to kick the everliving shit out of a soccer ball? Why? Cause they're a bunch of jerks. Is there no end to the effort a company will expend on a promotional stunt? Deemed unsafe for tra... / Continue →

    This is a little funny cartoon. Funny in a sad way. Like watching an old lady with a flowery hat on trying to open the door to the thrift store even though the sign clearly states, "Closed on Sundays". The Chive Thanks to Captain_O!, who drives an electric car because elect... / Continue →
