    Whatever you do, be careful where you sit. Get it? Because you might blow your asscheeks off! I mean, if the mines weren't decommissioned. But since they are, all you have to worry about is sitting on one of the spikey bits. Unless you're into that, in which case so am I a... / Continue →

    In an unprecedented subbing fail, a British nuclear sub recently crashed into a French one. I've got the feeling somebody swerved out of their lane (read: the Frenchies, they're suckers for red wine). Officials said the low-speed crash did not damage the vessels' nuclear re... / Continue →

    Many of you may remember the Rinspeed sQuba car posted a few months ago. It's a zero emission vehicle that runs off a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and can dive underwater. All we had back then were a couple of concept art pics, but now there's a video! Sure it's a ridicu... / Continue →
