    James Howells of Wales is sad. Really sad. You see, James threw away a hard drive containing the 7,500 Bitcoins he purchased back in 2009. Now those Bitcoins are worth $7.5-million. If I were James I would be on top of a bridge right now. "Suicide?" Worse -- stuck in traf... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robotic trashcan on wheels that moves to catch everything you throw at it. That way you score a basket every time and don't feel like such a CLUMSY LOSER. Sure it would be way cheaper to roll your office chair over there and pick it up, but who wants to b... / Continue →

    Because I cannot tell a lie, I did (shamefully) watch 15-minutes of MTV's 'Jersey Shore' one time before setting the television on fire and getting kicked out of the bar (where's my show, MTV?). Anyway, if you haven't ever seen an episode, keep it up. But this is a video from... / Continue →
