    65-year old grandmother Carol Howarth of Wales was shocked to find a massive swarm of bees following her car. And I would be too. Allegedly the bee's queen had gotten trapped in Carol's trunk and the bees were swarming to come rescue her. Sounds like a Disney movie to me. I... / Continue →

    This is the CoyoteVest, a vest for dogs up to 20 pounds that was designed to help prevent attacks from predators (i.e. coyotes). I have a small dog and there are coyote warning signs up around my neighborhood but I've never actually seen one in real life because they know bett... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a centipede protecting its young by curling up around them. I don't know about you, but I would definitely feel safe with those dagger legs wrapped around me. This is the exact same reason why I always sleep with an unsheathed ninja sword at night. "To prot... / Continue →

    These are real Star Wars condoms (previously: these conceptual ones) you can order from Graphic Armor, a company that specializes in custom condom printing and not knight's armor painted with butts and penises like I imagined in my mind. So like, the actual condom you put on y... / Continue →

    The Battelle DroneDefender is a rifle designed to take over radio control of drones so you can bring them to the ground and stomp them. I just blasted myself in the nuts with one and now the doctor says I can't have kids for another 600 years which is actually fine with me bec... / Continue →

    This is the chainmail wine bottle sleeve available from ThinkGeek ($25). It keeps your wine bottle safe from sword and arrow attacks. It does not keep your wine bottle safe from being opened and drank though, which is why I'm a little bit tipsy right now. *hiccup* Hey. Hey.... / Continue →

    Because garages are for people who drive cars they're embarrassed about/minivans, this is the GazeBox, a gazebo to show off your fancy car. They come in a variety of sizes and panel options (including camo in case you want to make finding your car in the morning extra hard on ... / Continue →

    This is a series of conceptual motorcycle helmets imagined by digital designer Jyo John Mullor (previously: these other unrelated novelty motorcycle helmets including butt and booby). They look like real human heads. Will a cop pull you over for not wearing a helmet? Probabl... / Continue →

    This is a video taken off the coast of Australia of a spider crab colony migrating in a giant pyramid (technically just a big lump) formation to better defend themselves against predators. If I was one of those crabs I would want to be the one in the very bottom middle. And I ... / Continue →

    These are several videos of Philadelphia University student Gordon Jackson (who can almost do the splits) testing the homemade Batsuit he built out of Kevlar, Kydex padding (not to be confused with Kotex padding, which is mostly cotton) and impact-resistant foam that is punch, ... / Continue →

    This is the Bandai Batmobile iPhone 6 Crazy Case (~$50). It looks like the Batmobile from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie. The headlights and taillights light up plus -- PLUS -- the jet engine in the back actually projects the Bat Signal! How cool is that?! Very cool is the ... / Continue →

    This is the Darth Vader inspired medieval leather armor made by Prince Armory (of Joker and Batman and Aquaman medieval armor fame). His face kind of reminds me of an alien. Not a real alien, but like, a Hollywood movie alien. A FAKE ALIEN. The real ones -- at least the one... / Continue →

    These are the sets of Pikachu and Hello Kitty samurai armor built by DeviantARTist Andihandro. As far as samurai armor goes, they're not that intimidating looking. Which means they could probably only be worn by the most fearsome samurai. It's like, you don't have to look th... / Continue →

    These are believed to be the oldest pants in the world, recently excavated from a tomb in China. They belonged to a nomadic herder, who likely wore them for riding horseback. When I'm riding horseback? Full knight's armor and a flaming lance. With straight-fitting legs and ... / Continue →

    In case you somehow missed it because you've been internet celibate for the past 24 hours, this is a video of a family's cat that rushes to scare off a dog that's trying to eat a boy on a bicycle. That is a good cat. My cat? My cat would not lift a paw if it saw me being att... / Continue →

    These are the intricate leather armor corsets made by Andrew Kanounov. If I were a lady I would kill for one. Hell, I'm not a lady and I'd still rock one around the house pretending to be Xena Warrior Princess while my roommate is at work. Will I be swinging a sword? At lea... / Continue →

    Well, the football season is over and the Redskins lost -- AGAIN. We came close though. "You only won three games." I'm not even sure if we should be considered a professional team anymore. Maybe a couple years of arena football and we can come back. This is a series of fo... / Continue →

    This is G2 Research's new R.I.P. Ammunition, a bullet that releases eight pieces of shrapnel upon entering its target. For the record, I would not like to be shot with it. Cupid's arrow? Absolutely. I'm lonely, hit me already you fat baby. After separation the tines travel ... / Continue →

    This is the Joker themed leather suit of armor and mask made by Prince Armory (of Batman and Aquaman armor fame). It looks amazing. I think Facebook commenter Christopher R. really hit the nail on the head when he said, "I would like to be buried in this, even if it meant sti... / Continue →
