    I'm serious -- don't tell my granpda. He doesn't even know what an iPad is but he'll want to know, then you'll get sucked into a half hour conversation that will probably end with him falling asleep mid-sentence. This is the iRock (really?), a $1,300 rocking chair that genera... / Continue →

    Seen here staring at an empty table like old people are so good at, a researcher wears the Age-Man suit, a suit designed to make the wearer feel 75+ years old (Note: not the first one we've seen). The concept is that by allowing health care professionals to wear the thing, the... / Continue →

    I see your bra! This is a video of 80-year old Laverne (my God what a sexy name) freaking the f*** out before a tandem skydiving jump and accidentally slipping out of her harness. Thankfully, her partner was a TOTAL PRO and managed to hold on and get her to the ground in one,... / Continue →

    Seen here about to get creamed by a bus because they're too f***ing slow, a couple demonstrate their AGNES (Age Gain Now Empathy System) suits, which make them move and feel like crotchety 75-year olds. *waving cane* Kids these days, I...just shat myself again. When you put ... / Continue →

    Note: Long-ass screencap of all his searches to date HERE. These are allegedly the search queries of an 81-year old grandpa whose elder-disrespecting son has convinced Twitter is a search engine. It has highly questionable written all over it considering 1. gramps only makes ... / Continue →

    Seen here using a remarkably small font for a 400-year old, Ivy Bean, the world's oldest Twitter user, has passed away. Her tweets, and old-lady aroma, will be missed. From the two-story care home where she lived in the northern English city of Bradford, 104-year-old Ivy Bean... / Continue →

    In the best news I've heard since screwing dinos helps prevent wrinkles, drinking alcohol may help battle rheumatoid arthritis. Did you hear that, gramps? I said, "TAKE ME TO THE LIQUOR STORE!" Moderate drinking has been linked to a variety of health benefits, including a re... / Continue →

    Is there anything sexier than a grandma strip-dancin'? Yes, every single thing in the world including being compacted to death in the back of a garbage truck. But for the six of you out there that are into crimes against nature, there's the $115 Cushion-Grip Security Pole Mob... / Continue →

    Note: Video (actually just audio) is after the jump because we respect our elders here on the front page. This is an audio recording of somebody's grandma calling tech support asking how to remove the playable Pac-Man demo that Google put on its homepage for a day celebrating ... / Continue →

    A 67-year old man backed his Mercedes (you're too old to drive!) through the wall of a parking garage on the 7th floor. That's higher than six! But nowhere near as high as my roommate (he just tried walking through the screen door again). 'The driver got his foot stuck under ... / Continue →

    The bed ladder isn't what you use to climb into your roommate's bunk to cuddle at night. It's what you use to get out of bed if you're older than sin or disabled. The $15 ladder attaches to any bed (with posts or legs) and makes sitting up a breeze provided you have arm muscl... / Continue →

    I don't know if you could tell by the title but I was implying that I would tear that robotic bastard limb from limb right there in aisle four between the baby food and Maxi-Pads. Ain't no robot handling these eggs! The robotic assistant -- an advanced version of the Robovie-... / Continue →

    If there's one thing old people love it's soft food. If there's another it's stuff with giant-ass buttons so they can push the right one with their shaky, arthritic fingers. Aaaaaand I've officially depressed myself. Good times. Anyway, this is a cell phone for old people a... / Continue →

    This is a video of the infamous WoW freakout kid arguing with his grandmother, who's been sent over to watch him and his brother for the weekend. Now I really wanted to believe that these videos are real, but this one's the nail in the coffin for being fake. And not just beca... / Continue →

    The Veda International Robot Research and Development Centre (in Japan, of course) is hard at work developing a wheelchair for all the aging fogies in the country. And this is it, the Rodem. It's being touted as the wheelchair of the future. Pfft, I'll believe it when my gra... / Continue →
