    This is the 700-year old bronze ring unearthed in Bulgaria (two Bulgaria posts in a row, wild!) that archaeologists suspect was used for covert political murders using some form of liquid poison inside. How James Bond-y. "It's a unique ring," [archaeologist Bonnie] Petrunova ... / Continue →

    This is the Lygodium Spider Moth (Siamusotima aranea). The species was originally discovered in Thailand in 2005, but only recently described by entomologists. Did I mention it evolved with spider leg markings on its wings to fool predators? Because it has those, it totally ... / Continue →

    Pocketbands are rubber bracelets with a small hidden pocket on the inside for storing money, keys, and drugs. They're currently a Kickstarter campaign created by Devin Eisner but have already been funded and the bracelets will go into production this month. Granted they're no ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like the Batamaran (see what I did there? I combined bat and catamaran) I drew for part of my Bat-fan fiction (I'm doing it again!) graphic novel, Juliet Marine's 'Ghost' stealth boat makes an appearance off the coast of New England. It floats o... / Continue →

    Looks like a normal coloring book page, right? Something a parent might reluctantly hang on the refrigerator while mentally reminding themselves to take it down before any guests can see it? WRONG! It's been dosed with drugs. *tears open mail licking everything* Back in Fe... / Continue →

    The Electronic Spy Camera Shirt from ThinkGeek costs $40 and has a little spycam hidden in the image (ironically, in the camera!) on the front. It takes far-from-stunning 640 x 480px pictures, but only in bright light, making a bow-tie camera far more practical (not to mention... / Continue →

    The $13 Bev-Cam may look like a crappy digital camera, but it's actually a 5oz flask for hiding booze. Get inside me you delicious megapixels, make me warm! Heading out for a night of clubbing? Tired of paying over inflated prices for watered down weak drinks? We have the per... / Continue →

    This is a MacBook sleeve that looks like a newspaper. That way you won't get robbed unless somebody is stealing old newspapers, WHICH HAPPENS. Alternatively, wrap your laptop in newsprint. The protective carrier comes in four different foreign language models and will set yo... / Continue →

    Want an 8x zoom lens for your DSi because you're secretly a spy? Me neither. Want an 8x zoom lens for your DSi because you're in love with the receptionist at the free clinic and you want to candidly take pictures of her? You've got problems. But if you've also got $25 you ... / Continue →

    Geekologie loyalist Mark went and made an iPhone out of Placticine modeling clay. Now I know what you're thinking, and I agree -- JUST LIKE THE REAL THING! Granted, people have already made iPhones out of all sorts of stuff, but, quite frankly, those people don't read Geekolo... / Continue →

    So apparently cats can exploit their caretakers to get what they want through the use of a special purr. I can't say I'm surprised, that's a picture of two of my old cats there (rest in peace, guys). One minute they were purring -- and the next I was teaching them how to read... / Continue →

    You just freeze a mint flavored Mento in an ice cube and then make a drink for a friend (read: enemy). Any artificially sweetened soda should work, but preferably something darker so the frozen Mento isn't so obvious. Then, a few minutes later when the Mento is exposed to the... / Continue →

    This is a real package of Avery shipping labels and, as you can see, they've been sending packages to Tyler Durden. It's not Photohaxored either because you can see another picture at their official product site. So, apparently somebody at Avery has a sense of humor (and a bo... / Continue →

    Mike Libby is a Maine-based artist who glues old watch parts on dead bugs to create steampunk looking insects. Which actually seem pretty cool until you realize that this is what robots will really look like in a few years. True story: one time I let a beetle crawl into my ea... / Continue →

    I've known about powdered alcohol for a while now because I remember reading an article about powdered wine being available to campers (also great for water into wine tricks!). *HORF* Just kidding, I'd totally drink it. But now it's hitting the mainstream, and soon you'll se... / Continue →

    A man, Dan we'll call him, because that's his name (or is it? Allegedly it is), visited a Washington Mutual ATM to get some money. Pretty normal story so far, right? Did I mention he was wearing a dinosaur costume? He wasn't -- but you're right, that would have added a sexy ... / Continue →

    Remember the cell phone gun that Italian police found in a raid on the mafia? Turns out they're mad popular in Europe. And, I've got to tell ya, I'd almost be fooled if it looked like a Blackberry and not a phone from the 90's -- the 1890's (note to self: fact check 19th cent... / Continue →

    A Turkish man, who may or may not be a fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, but who I am dubbing Solid Turkish Snake anyways, escaped German prison in a cardboard box. The man hid in the box at the end of a shift of his prison job of making stationery and was carried out by a... / Continue →

    Most of you daily readers out there that aren't brainwashed every night will recall yesterday's ninja cat post. And, as testament to my L337 unbiased reporting, here comes a ninja dog for all you canine lovers. This little guy could certainly teach these two ninjects a thing ... / Continue →

    Sorry for the late start today folks. You see, my girlfriend and I got in a fight last night over how I like my eggs cooked, and she, in a fit of rage, broke my interwebs. But I've pieced them back together and am ready to roll. So let's do this! Here's a video of a ninja c... / Continue →
