    Mommy, are those bees wrestling? This is a rare video of a queen bee and drone caught mating midflight. The drone dies during the process though, which is how I want to go out too. Fun fact: when I asked my parents about the birds and the bees my dad told me one builds nests... / Continue →

    This is an estimated 1-in-50-million-specimen bi-colored blue and red lobster caught in Newfoundland (previously, a 1-in-30-million spotted calico lobster). That's pretty rare. Even rarer than my roommate being able to sleep through a whole night without waking himself up far... / Continue →

    This is a solid gold 2x4 LEGO brick for sale. Apparently they were awarded to employees and business partners of the company back in the late 70's and early 80's when I was just an ugly baby with a big head who crapped himself all the time. This brick is 25.65g of 14K gold (0... / Continue →

    This is Iceberg, an all-white killer whale recently spotted with the rest of his pod off the coast of Russia. How nobody harpooned him to mount and display in their trophy room is beyond me. Jk jk, I cried during Free Willy too. And speaking of freeing willy *going for zipp... / Continue →

    First of all, whoever started calling this thing a unicorn obviously failed Mythical Creatures 101 because, and I'm sure you know this, UNICORNS HAVE A UNI-CORN. This, if anything, is a duocorn, which are far less rare (I've even seen them dead on the side of the road). One... / Continue →

    This isn't geeky, but it is awesome, if only in a freakish, sad kind of way. Dede Koswara, 37, is known as the 'Tree Man of Java' because he looks like a tree (those are his actual feet at the bottom of the picture). He has an extremely rare immune deficiency that prevents his... / Continue →
