    This is a proposed warning to print in the front of science textbooks to remind children to take their educations seriously. Because, let's not kid ourselves -- nobody wants to be left out of the dino rodeo. Me most of all. Unfortunately, like learning to tie my own shoes or... / Continue →

    Fake Science is a little website of old science textbook illustrations with accompanying make-believe facts. It's pretty awesome, although still in its infancy so there isn't a whole lot of content yet (only two pages). I posted a handful of my favorites after the jump, but i... / Continue →

    This is a video of a gamer girl (A gamer girl, not THE gamer girl) testing the durability of NES cartridges by freezing them, putting them in the washing machine, dropping them off buildings, drilling them, fireworking them and running them over with cars. How do the games fai... / Continue →

    Oh man, I love David Attenborough. And I know a certain lil girl who loves Jane Goodall. And now they're BOTH featured in the latest Symphony of Science, 'The Unbroken Thread'. This is a good one. Especially Jane Goodall's part when she says, "there isn't a sharp line divid... / Continue →

    According to Fox News, arguably the hardest hitting news organization besides Geekologie and any other news organization, these are the most obvious scientific discoveries of 2009. They are (in no particular order): *High Heels Lead to Foot Pain (And Extra Height) *Men Much M... / Continue →

    This is a 9-second video of an evil mad scientist pouring liquid nitrogen in his mouth and blowing out vapor. Why? Because he's mad, yo! Even worse than that tea-loving mother with the big hat. Though it may look like this scientist is actually drinking the liquid nitrogen,... / Continue →

    Spit Balls are a $ 5 toy from Edmund Scientific that grow to 200x their original size and sound like something that I don't want to touch. Still, for the sake of science, I'd put them in my mouth. The wonder of polymers makes these slimy spit balls possible. Easy to make and ... / Continue →

    Science is amazing. And I'm not just saying that because it's my only hope of cloning dinosaurs or inventing a time machine. Yes I am. But still, the Leidenfrost Effect is cool too. The Leidenfrost effect is a phenomenon in which a liquid, in near contact with a mass signif... / Continue →

    That's right young'n, the periodic table finally gave birth to element 112, temporarily named 'Ununbium', until it's official name 'Geekologium' can be verified by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), who I may or may not be holding at gunpoint. I SAI... / Continue →

    This is a video of an experiment called 'Puppy Pulling Power' that helps determine which breed of dog women respond to most. Basically some guy attached a digital camera to a dog's collar that takes a picture every time it detects a smile. Or breasts. Quite possibly breasts.... / Continue →

    This is probably the coolest telling of Little Red Riding Hood I've ever seen not including the one where Red was a busty college co-ed and the wolf was just a guy with a monster dong and bear costume (low budget). But he still ate her alright! The grandmother too. *HORFITY ... / Continue →

    The latest in a line of geeky periodic tables comes the Periodic Table of XBox Games from Blackwalt (possibly of LOST fame). Full size version HERE and description of all "elements" HERE. Good looking. I hope you can appreciate it as much as I do. And also, this cake. P.S.... / Continue →

    Mercury Thiocyanate used to be made into "Pharoah's Serpent" fireworks similar to the "black snake" tablets you light and watch grow into a crusty snake. Unfortunately, it produces mercury vapors during the process so now the tablets are made out of a much safer sodium bicarbo... / Continue →

    Wow, what a periodic weekend! First yesterday's table of typefaces, and now one of video game characters! WOO WOO! Hit THIS to see the thing in its entirety. So, what do you think? Personally, I think it's questionable as hell. It looks like they just threw characters int... / Continue →

    Apparently now that the LHC has Google doing its bidding, it's taking it easy and won't become operational anytime soon. Unless September is considered soon, in which case, shit, I won't live to see the finale of LOST. The Large Hadron Collider could be switched back on in Se... / Continue →

    I swear, I never get tired of watching non-Newtonian fluid fun. In this case, another 2:1 cornstarch to water concoction (aka oobleck) on a speaker. I really liked it when some of the pieces started diving out of the pool. Screw this sausage pool party, I'm outta heeeeeeeeee... / Continue →

    This is a duvet cover that a loving woman made for her chemistry major boyfriend. I think this is the first time I've ever typed duvet. Secretly, I liked it. You may or may not have seen a post I did back in the fall when I was in the planning stages of making a quilt for my... / Continue →

    A Yoshimoto Cube is actually two separate cubes nested together. The technical terminology for the change is "the transformation of two stellated rhombic dodecahedrons from a cube". Honestly, I just like listening to this guy's voice. It's soothing, like a homicidal maniac's... / Continue →
