    This is the progression of photos (GIF of them after the jump) documenting the moment two girls in bed taking selfies realize they're not alone. It brought me great joy. I don't know why people freak out about spiders so much. Where do you think the bites you wake up in the ... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos of various species of spiders that camouflage themselves as bird droppings to avoid predation (either by themselves or with some carefully crafted webbing). Would you dress up like bird shit to avoid getting eaten? I would. I'd even make sure I smel... / Continue →

    This is a short video of an octopus that's caught by a fisherman and, when it's tossed onto the boat's deck, instantly turns white to try to hide from the humans. Unfortunately, human eyes are harder to trick than some ocean predators, and I imagine this guy ended up as somebo... / Continue →

    These are the smiley face screws created by Studio Yumakano and the Komuro Manufacturing Company in East Osaka, Japan. They require a special smiley face screwdriver to screw into something. They're supposed to make everyone who sees them happy. Not a bad idea, but you know ... / Continue →

    This is a pool built by Agor Engineering that has a wooden floor that can be raised and lowered hydraulically (previously: these concrete ones). You can adjust the height too, so if you just want to sit in tit-deep water and sip cocktails, you can do that. Or you can make it... / Continue →

    Alternatively, paint a refrigerator box. This is the cardboard stand-up TARDIS available for $225 pre-order from Urban Collector. That's a lot of money for cardboard. It's for people who don't have the carpentry skills to go to Home Depot and build one out of wood. Still, t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Nick Santonastasso (who was born with Hanhart Syndrome and only has one limb -- an arm) dressed up as a zombie and scaring Norman Reedus, who thinks he's doing a Walking Dead interview in a hotel room. He definitely gets scared, but not as much as I would ha... / Continue →

    Because apparently the US government cares what sort of enchanted armor your level 90 blood elf warlock is wearing, recently leaked documents indicate the National Security Agency actively spies on massive multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft and Second Life. No wor... / Continue →

    This is a parody commercial featuring a fan-made Dr. Who themed Guess Who game created by Karen Kavett. It plays just like the regular game, except with more questions like "Are they one of my top three favorite Doctors?" and "Have they ever seen the inside of a TARDIS?" Pers... / Continue →

    Peekaboo! Because nobody should ever sleep again, a woman in China recently had a spider removed from her ear that had snuck in there while she was napping and took up residence for five days. No clue what it was eating, but my guess is wax. Or lice. Fortunately for the w... / Continue →

    Because those forest green camo shorts don't hide you on the street as well as you'd like to imagine, a North Carolina company is now designing site-specific camouflage using satellite imagery and drone/ground recon. ZOMG -- tell me you can make me look like a women's sauna. ... / Continue →

    Seen here spying on a lady changing before coming though the window and chasing her up the stairs, a spherical reconnaissance drone developed by the Japanese military is put through its paces. For now the ball is remote controlled, but an autonomous flight system is currently ... / Continue →

    These ghost ants, which we will now only refer to as Christmas light ants, have clear abdomens and turn the color of whatever they eat. Which, in the wild, is probably a green or brown. BORING! I say we bring some rainbow cake and glowsticks to our next picnic. Also, maybe ... / Continue →
