    This is DeviantARTist Nyima-chan cosplaying as a Stargate. Pretty clever. The yellow chevrons around the gate even light up. That's a nice touch. Maybe for next Halloween I'll be a worm hole. Specifically: Earthworm Jim's anus. Everyone will ask what I'm supposed to be, a... / Continue →

    This is a zombie dog costume. It's kind of morbid looking. They cost $16-$20 depending on the size and, based on the Amazon reviews, are incredibly poorly made and not worth the money. Still, I like the little brain hat. You know who it reminds me of? Rex from Fallout: New... / Continue →

    I knew instantly it wasn't a spider though because spiders have twelve legs and this one only has four. "GW? Spiders only have eight legs." Then what the f*** did I just smash with a rolled up newspaper?! I'd look at the carcass in the trash but REAL TALK: I ordered Chinese... / Continue →

    A Russian chatbot named Eugene Goostman has successfully become the first program to beat the Turing Test and convince more than 30% of the humans it chatted with that it was human as well. I would have never fallen for that. Hello. "Hello." IT'S A ROBOT -- IT'S A F***ING R... / Continue →

    Allegedly the orchid mantis is the first known species of predator to lure prey pretending to be a flower (not hiding in the flower like some spiders do). Apparently they're so convincing they're more likely to be visited by insects than actual flowers. That's something you m... / Continue →
