    This is a photo Bill Nye posted to his Instagram of him emulating the Jay-Z photograph in the background. That's pretty much all there is to say except I'm glad Jay-Z and Nas put their feud to rest because I got tired of hating Jay-Z so much in the early 2000's. It took a lot... / Continue →

    This is a zoomable 2-billion pixel photo of Mount Everest. Well, technically this is a screenshot of that photo, but if you go HERE and click on the picture you can pan and zoom the actual image to your coal-black heart's content. The final composite...was assembled from al... / Continue →

    This is a shot from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) aboard the European Space Agency's Mars Express Orbiter, showing Marineris Canyon, the largest and deepest canyon system known to man. But not aliens. Stretching across the equatorial Martian highlands for some 2,... / Continue →

    Moths (AKA ugly butterflies): they're spazzy. They're like the Geekologie Writer of the flying insect world: attracted to bright lights, always running into things, and will probably meet their untimely death from the shock of a bug-zapper. This is a 20-second exposure showin... / Continue →

    Because some people are just f***ing nuts, boat captain and "professional" Loch Ness Monster hunter George Edwards claims this photo he took of a log is irrefutable evidence that Nessie exists. Irrefutable, huh? That...is a pretty bold claim. "Go big or go home," I imagine h... / Continue →

    Note: Full res version HERE and original image prior to the Lunar Orbiter Image Reprocessing Project HERE. This is the photo taken 45-years ago today when Lunar Orbiter 1, tasked with locating a suitable landing zone for the future Apollo missions, turned around and took a pic... / Continue →

    Note: Much larger version HERE in case you're looking for an out-of-this-world (but not solar system) wallpaper. This is allegedly a real picture (although I have my doubts -- NASA) of a massive storm on Saturn that has wrapped around the entire planet and caught up with its t... / Continue →

    This is a series of Photoshopped images from Rabbbittooth (not to be confused with Rabittoot, which are usually accompanied by a couple pellets) that superimposes a Star Trek character's face over an old timey body. That's pretty much it. There are some Star Wars ones after t... / Continue →

    You're not fooling anybody! Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to make it your desktop background. In other 'animals that look like things' news, this is a crab casting a shadow that looks uncannily like the caped crusader (Batman, not the kid that runs around your ne... / Continue →

    Certainly brings new meaning to the term "headshot", amirite?! No? Oh. Seen here looking a lot less ridiculous than he's going to when he has a camera installed in the back of his head, NYU photography professor Wafaa Bilal wants a camera installed in the back of his head. ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a super-massive black hole erupting and spewing all kinds of outerspace shit everywhere. How massive is super-massive? Try six billion times bigger than our sun. I told you that dim bastard was a runt! This is a composite of two images, one taken in rad... / Continue →

    This is a recently declassified photo from 1962 of the only nuke ever detonated in space by humans. But what about aliens? They detonate those things all the f***ing time. I'm talking like fireworks on the 4th of July. I know, I know -- that tie-in was the shit. Why, pray ... / Continue →

    Just like this (because this is a picture of one being filmed is the thing). When I saw this setup, print in Esquire, I assumed they had built a physical crawl, dragged through the camera's field of view to create the effect. Looking closer, though, it's obvious that it was th... / Continue →

    They say a picture's worth a thousand words, and based on the image a reader just sent me, those words are "this is my penis" 250 times. Thanks for that, guy. "Right-click, save as" aside, this is photographic evidence Nintendo designed the N-64 to look like a koala's face wh... / Continue →

    This is a never-before released shot of Albert Einstein's desk the day he died. And you know what they say: a cluttered desk is a sign of genius. Also, laying on the couch with a laptop scorching your privates. Guilty as charged! Einstein's desk [kottke] Thanks to Mary, wh... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery of what the apocalypse of 2012 is going to look like [editor's note to self: remember to come back and change the date to 2015 if the whole 2012 shit is a bust], courtesy of the recent volcanic eruptions in Iceland. Doesn't look like a very good place ... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're thinking, "WTF GW -- another freaking rainbow?!" But it ain't. This is NOT a rainbow. I repeat (for the high and habitual sentence skippers), this is NOT a rainbow. IT'S A MOONBOW, YOUNG'N! What's a moonbow? Beats me, but it better shoot arrows! It... / Continue →

    Don't even act like you wouldn't swim in that creek. You'd probably even contemplate drowning on purpose AND I DON'T BLAME YOU. It's certainly not the worst way to go. Not the best either, but not the worst. These aren't paintings but true photos! Also everything you can se... / Continue →

    This picture is so old colors hadn't even been invented yet. But had balls of steel? Yes they had. Speaking of which: thanks God, now watch me jump this bus with rocket-skates on. How Did They Make Zeppelins? [gizmodo] Thanks to Rick, who built a zeppelin single-handedly a... / Continue →

    Yes, even the crew of the Enterprise take Myspace-style shots of themselves in the bathroom mirror. And you don't see me complaining! What you do see is me gluing these fake elf ears on. "Nanu-nanu!" Hot chick Trekkies DO exist! [albotas]... / Continue →
