    This is an easy-to-understand chart depicting how common birthdays are in the US based on data from 1973-1999. *sobbing* My parents said I was special -- it looks like half the f***ing country was born August 12th! So yeah, basically if you were born in July-September you are... / Continue →

    Sure I SHOULD be able to read the time even without solving the equations, but that wouldn't be giving the booze enough credit. One time I set the kitchen on fire because I couldn't figure out how long to put a 5-minute meal in the microwave (I opted for 2 hours). Joking, I p... / Continue →

    This is vintage ad for the classiest watch ever made. And that's saying a lot, because I've seen a handpainted one where the minute hand was a phallus. Regardless, every thirty seconds the thing blinks "it's time to f***" and is apparently "a subtle way to break the ice" and ... / Continue →

    Haha, how many of you actually tried? I did, and I didn't even screw up once. I mean, not to brag or anything but: TOY BOAT, TOY BOAT, TOY BOYT, TOY BOYT, TWOY BOYT!! Awh, shit. Do-over? Totally minimal block of wood with digital numbers floating across the surface. These... / Continue →

    The Doomsday Clock, which I'd like to think looks a little more official than that piece of shit in the picture, has been set back a minute, to 6-minutes till midnight. I suspect it's some sort of governmental diversion. The Doomsday Clock has been set back 1 minute for the f... / Continue →

    I like this clock. I can't exactly say why but I think it's because it costs $2,338 and is definitely something my son team of highly skilled artisans could recreate for a fraction of the cost, ultimately saving you, the sucker, a bundle. one of our favorite wall clocks, the ... / Continue →

    This conceptual Alessi laser watch by designer Andy Kurovets projects the time onto your wrist with lasers. Pfft, what's the matter with Indiglo technology? That shit's hot! But if you do opt for lasers, just make sure you buy the right powered battery or that bitch might bu... / Continue →

    This is a little video montage of notable special effects from movies in the past 100 years all packed into a five minute clip. And as you'll see, we haven't come very far. I want to be able to feeeeeel the movies. I read Brave New World in high school! Also, almost half of... / Continue →

    This is a video produced by Columbia University explaining the Big Bang in terms even a sped like myself can understand. I thought it was pretty interesting, especially the notion that nothing, not even time, existed before the Big Bang. That blew my mind. Or should I say Bi... / Continue →

    I've been thinking for years how badly the world needs a $30 LEGO clock radio, so why it took so long to finally make one is beyond me. Also, quantum physics, I don't those either. The LEGO Clock Radio is ten times the size of an original LEGO brick with knobs that work as vo... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of the center of the Milky Way Galaxy rising over Texas from 9:20 PM to 6:43 AM on April 21-22, 2009, during a star party. Now I have no idea what a star party is, but if it's anything like the last bachelor party I went to, I want in. We could eve... / Continue →

    Denis Guidon's 'Ora ilLegale' clock makes switching between daylight saving time and regular time easy -- you just tilt the timepiece back and forth on its two bases. Pretty clever. Although, personally, I don't keep clocks around the house because I don't adhere to a regular... / Continue →
