    Lunch Bugs are sandwich bags with bugs printed on them to help deter lunch theft. They're basically a variation of the already-existing mold-bags and will run you $7 for a 24-pack. That makes them almost $0.30 apiece, which is a little steep for a bag (I pay $0.99 for snack p... / Continue →

    A man recently had his laptop stolen in Sweden, only to have a zip-drive mailed to his residence a week later that contained all his files and personal data from the machine. Sounds like some serious Robin Hood shit if you ask me. You know, honor amongst thieves. No? That's... / Continue →

    A $20K iPhone case? Pfft, what are we, peasants? A $2.5 million one? Please, I've wiped with nicer cell phone cases just because I didn't feel like waddling out to the hall closet for more TP. The world's most expensive phone with a total construction cost of £5 million ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Batman swooping down out of nowhere to abscond with some poor bastard's tacos right at the moment of drive-thru window handoff. The Caped Crusader reduced to taco theft, I never thought I'd see the day. Coming out of the closet with Robin sure, but stealin... / Continue →

    Roger Ritter is a man. A man who saw two other men diddling each in a bathroom stall stealing iPhones from a Gresham, Oregon AT&T store. So what did he do? He went vigilante justice on their asses. And failed. "I'm not a cowboy, I'm not a hero. I was just doing what I alwa... / Continue →

    I can never see the word "balaclava" without thinking baklava, which is totally different but infinitely more delicious and arguably my favorite dessert. Now I know what you're thinking, "but GW, I don't care what your favorite dessert is". But you know what? It's too f***in... / Continue →

    FOR THE LAST TIME, IT WASN'T ME. I've already been contacted by the authorities and while I may have had some interest in one of the human-operated dinos, I wouldn't be caught dead stealing a ROBOTIC model. I just couldn't do it. Literally, no boner. Staff noticed the 1.5m ... / Continue →

    This is part of a cheat-sheet (worthwhile full version HERE) you're supposed to hang up in your time machine so you can steal everyone's credit for discoveries and inventions of the past. Smaaaart. I definitely just printed one out and taped it to the dash of my time travelin... / Continue →

    Some poor bastard, fed up with his car being broken into, decided to leave this passive aggressive note for the thieves. And not only does he reference Half-Life, THE DUDE KEEPS AN OCARINA IN HIS CAR. ZOMG, do you think he's Link?! Yeah, me neither. Also, to guy's credit,... / Continue →

    Typically I don't post movie posters because that's IWatchStuff's job, but I'm making an exception in this case because DISNEY STOLE GEEKOLOGIE'S TAGLINE. You think you can just change "awesome" to "guinea pigs" (which, incidentally are a synonym for awesome) and get away with... / 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 →
