    PROTIP: Fix the date on your camera or remove it. This is the Serenity spacecraft from Firefly that Jacob LaRocca built entirely out of duct tape. It weighs in at 23-pounds and took 27 rolls of tape and 110 hours to complete. That is some serious dedication. I tried to glue... / Continue →

    Post-It's: you write something on them (usually 'KICK ME IN THE ASS HARD') and stick them to things (usually a person's back), simple as that. And now they make them shaped like watches so you can wear them around your wrist like lil reminder bracelets (that string-around-the-... / Continue →

    This is an x-ray of a new species of stingray discovered in the Amazon dubbed the 'pancake' stingray (photo explanation after the jump -- SPOILER: It looks like a giant f***ing pancake). I assume the hunt is still on for a waffle stingray, which is good news because they'll pr... / Continue →

    This is a giant-ass spider web made entirely out of packing tape. Like, nothing else. No glue, no popsicle sticks, no rubber bands, just packing tape. Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he co... / Continue →

    Kidding, there's no such thing as too far when it comes to bacon. Except I'm vegetarian so the closest I ever come is fake bacon which tastes like shit every time I eat i which is often because I'm always hoping the next time it doesn't. But it never fails to disappoint. You... / Continue →

    FINALLY, a tape dispenser that cuts tape with a straight edge. I think I speak for us all when I say IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME. Zig-zag edges are sooooooo 1900's. Also, tops you can't see through. Ahem, ladies. This is the 2000's -- GET WITH THE FUTURE! As you can see, the bla... / Continue →

    I always thought when you were out on the links and had to pee you yelled 'Fore!' and pissed in a bunker or on a tree. Well apparently that's not kosher and you need a UroClub (Putter Pisser sounds better) urine collection device. I'm not so sure what's so discreet about pis... / Continue →
