    This is the world map tattoo that backpacker Bill Passman got on his back in 2010. He has the countries colored in as he visits them all. What's that little country north of Australia and east of China. "A mole." Never heard of it. I'd like to get a similar tattoo, but I'd... / Continue →

    Note: Screencap above is the singer in the middle with a microphone. Watch the video at full screen in HD. Also, be sure to watch at work so your coworkers think you're a crazy person staring at a static screen. This is the music video for Young Rival's 'Black Is Good'. It'... / Continue →

    Lucy Luckayanko wanted something to make her feel unique. So what did she do? Remember humans are like snowflakes and no two are exactly alike? No, she dropped $3,000 to get a tiny platinum heart implanted in the optic membrane of one of her eyes. I could have blown glitte... / Continue →

    Did you really have to circle it? Because who doesn't want some all-seeing Eye of Sauron constantly tracking their pecker, Mark Wilson of Fast Company Design has discovered the XBox One's new Kinect sensor was powerful enough to see his penis. Which, judging from that picture... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a cloud shaped like perfect little waves. Apparently the shape was caused by Kelvin-Helmholtz instability and not an air wizard like you probably thought. An air wizard! You're a crazy person. Let me guess -- you probably think ocean waves are caused by wat... / Continue →

    Because what good is a Hello Kitty obsession if you can't put the cat right in your eyeball, apparently Hello Kitty contacts are a real thing. You can either get one big face that takes up your whole eyeball, or a ring of little faces that go around the pupil. Me? I'm going ... / Continue →

    And by 'It's uncanny' I mean whoever looked at this photo of Mercury taken by NASA's Messenger probe and thought "HOLY SHIT, IT'S HAN SOLO IN CARBONITE!" is clearly a crazy person. Obviously it's Luke falling after he dove off that antennae tower following his first fight wit... / Continue →

    This is a map created by Josh Stevens displaying the 3,313 North American Bigfoot sightings collected by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization in the last 92-years. It's crazy to think that behind every single one of those little purplish dots there's either a liar, crazy... / Continue →

    This is a shot from a Google Street View car (links to actual Google map) traveling the New Jersey Turnpike that happened to capture a space shuttle flyover in April 2012. Seeing it sent me on a Google Street View treasure hunt to see what other oddities I could spot in the sk... / Continue →

    This is a brief video showing an anti-child abuse ad created by the Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk Foundation in Spain. At an adult's glance, it looks like a normal child's face, but when viewed at an upward angle because you're a kid under 4-foot 5-inches tall, it re... / Continue →

    Note: It's an optical illusion, not an animated GIF. You can't print animated gifs on paper. This is a video of a cat spazzing out on the optical illusion seen above. So now we know -- yes, cats CAN see optical illusions. And laser beams. Unfortunately mine can't seem to s... / Continue →

    This is the Imperial Star Destroyer shaped cloud spotted by Redditor EltaninAntenna hovering over Helsinki, Finland. Allegedly it's real, so unless Daisy rises from the grave and argues otherwise in the comments, we'll all have to assume it hasn't been Photoshopped. Or nobody... / Continue →

    IT'S F***ING TERRIFYING, THANKS FOR ASKING. God, why am I even friends with these people? First we had a conceptual demonstration of Google's smart-glasses, and now an actual one of what a user would experience wearing the things. Basically they're glasses with a see-through... / Continue →

    Seen here looking nothing like the alien spacecraft that comes to beam me up for my annual enema, the UFO spotted by amateur Kentucky astronomer Allen Epling is seen hovering in the sky. I think it might just be a plastic bag. According to CBS affiliate WYMT-TV, Epling, pictu... / Continue →

    Because George Lucas believes that absolutely everything should be available with a Star Wars theme, here's a line of glasses from Japanese eyewear manufacturer Aigen. They're available in Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and Darth Vader designs and cost $500 wit... / Continue →

    These are Redditor Philawesomeraptor's girlfriend's eyeball stitches. She recently got a cornea transplant after suffering from a degenerative eye disease, and this is the result. Admittedly, it's kind of beautifully terrifying. Of course, if I had a degenerative eye disease... / Continue →

    Tomorrow afternoon (USA time) Venus will cross transit the sun and be visible from earth for several hours. Just make sure to use the old 'poke a hole in a piece of cardboard' trick and watch the shadow on the ground so you don't go blind. Save that for masturbating. Becau... / Continue →

    This is a conceptual video demo of Google's augmented reality glasses ('Project Glass'), which they hope to begin testing in the coming months. Think of them as like a see-through smart phone taped to your eyeball. You know, or augmented reality glasses if you're good at wrap... / Continue →

    This is a seeing eye robot developed by Japanese ball-bearings giant NSK, who actually wants to see the robo-dog hit production lines by 2020. *eying calendar* I'd...work on something I could monetize a little quicker. With this third iteration, unveiled late last month, NSK... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res version of the solar prominence HERE. Because bounty hunters were getting too close for comfort, Bigfoot has packed his furry ass up and moved to the sun. Aaaaaaand this is the evidence. You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well this one... / Continue →
