    Note: Worthwhile larger version HERE. This is the portrait of famed animator Hayao Miyazaki created by DeviantARTist C3nmt using Miyazaki's movie characters. I'm actually playing through Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's PS3 game 'Ni No Kuni' right now, and it's like living in one ... / Continue →

    Note: Very worthwhile higher-res version HERE in case you were hopping to spot a nude sunbather in the park. This is a 3-D composite shot of New York's Central Park and the surrounding buildings stitched together by photographer Sergey Semonov using a bunch of panoramic pictur... / Continue →

    This is a self portrait taken by the Mars Rover Curiosity with Mount Sharp in the background. Presumably it's a mirror shot because I don't see the arm it used to take the pic. Fine, it's actually a composite of 55 different images. You just had to ruin all the fun, didn't y... / Continue →

    This is one of Bill Nye's highschool yearbook photos (Bill Nye the Science Adolescent). I'm not sure what year it was, but he was already wearing bow ties. Good lord, I didn't even learn how to tie my own shoes until college. Thanks to Karsten, who can't even imagine how man... / 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-size version HERE to get all your wands fluttering. This is a composite shot of all the chapter illustrations from the entire Harry Potter series, lovingly collected by Redditor ajcfood. I dunno, it might contain spoilers if you look too close, so don't do that if ... / Continue →

    Apparently this is the first picture ever uploaded to the internet. Surprisingly it's not a cat, tit, or man's peenor. Hey -- I'm as shocked as you are. Apparently the internet was born much maturer than it is now and has been digressing ever since. Think Benjamin Button, b... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the shadow cast by a single atom, captured by scientists for the first time. How did they do it? Science. Ooooooooor drew straws and the shortest had to sell their soul to the devil. Not worth it, bro! To get this to work, an atom of Ytterbium was cool... / Continue →

    [IMAGE REMOVED] Follow the links to see the photo. Or don't, I'm not your mom. Ever wanted to see a picture of a bee trailing abdominal tissue after stinging a person's arm and losing its stinger? Me neither, yet here we are. Funny how the little twists and turns in life hav... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a loving couple cuddling and playing Diablo 3 simultaneously. I like how the girl gets the desktop and dude gets a crappy laptop on an ironing board. That's a great metaphor for relationships. Man, sometimes my girlfriend even makes me sit at the kid's t... / Continue →

    This is a mysterious picture that just cropped up from China featuring a couple Apple fanboys cosplaying as a Mac cyborg and fungal-bearded Steve Jobs. Plus Amelia Earhart is trying to sneak by on the right. One thing's for certain -- this dynamic duo wants to make it clear t... / Continue →

    I can't tell you how many hours I've spent looking at that top picture thinking to myself, "oh man, at least I'm not THAT guy." Little did I know. You see, a little piece of Uberdork McNewportsmoker lives inside each and every one of us. I'm just praying I didn't get part of... / Continue →

    Nice try NASA, but I know the moon when I see it! Note: High-res version HERE in case you want to look for aliens. That's right folks, this is the first close-up (close-up being relative) photo of Mercury sent back to NASA from the MESSENGER (because Mercury was messenger to ... / Continue →

    Because scientists don't really have anything better to do than look at pictures of things and conjecture what other things they look like (do clouds next!), a group has recently discovered Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's likeness in a brain blood vessel. Remind me again how ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res version HERE in case you want to print it out poster-size and tack it to the ceiling above your bunkbed. Remember the recently released line of geeky swimwear by Black Milk? Well here's a picture of the R2-D2 model spotted in the wild. Oooooooor on some chick ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the CoServ Electric headquarters in Corinth, Texas where some early-morning condensation has revealed an alien hideout. Why aliens would decide to set up shop there is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with recharging their spaceships. At any r... / Continue →

    I know it looks Photoshopped to high hell, but this is an actual photograph of a plane trying its damnedest to eclipse the moon. It reminds me of the scene in the original Batman when the Batwing eclipses the moon, except less badass because that one formed the Bat-signal and ... / Continue →

    This is a long-exposure shot of an aurora borealis by Ole Christian Salomonsen in Tromsø, Norway. Personally, I think it looks like a giant alien woman in a loose-fitting robe shying away from the camera, but that might just be the weed talking. Ooooor because she's embarras... / Continue →

    Note: There are 156 new species. Obviously, this isn't all of them. Hit the jump to see the entire graphic. Plus bonus video! As many of you probably know, I'm not allowed to play Pokemons anymore on account of them making me worship earth spirits and set my grandparents' h... / Continue →

    Han Ziwen, seen here being carried out of the Beijing Apple store like he just won the big game, was officially the first person in China to purchase an iPad. And, in case you can't read between the shoulder straps, his shirt reads, "I BUY IPAD #1". Mine? "Fruit Freak". Not... / Continue →
