    This is a video of Galactic Empire forces taking over the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. No word if Germany forged an alliance with the Empire or if the airport was taken by force. I suspect the worse. "Which is?" Germany has always been a secret part of the Galactic Empire.... / Continue →

    This is a series of 90's cartoon characters imagined as sad-ass drug addicts by artist Paul Ribera. They're all incredibly disturbing. Like walking in on your roommate with his penis in his hand. Because that happened to me. I mean masturbating is normal and all, but not wh... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like something I'd bet you I'll eat off the floor for $1, Pithovirus, a 30,000 year old virus recently dug up from permafrost in Siberia, plots world domination. The virus, which is harmless to humans but deadly to amoebas, is also the largest virus ever foun... / Continue →

    I actually wrote about the development of RoboEarth almost four years ago, but since a lot of you weren't even born yet I thought I'd touch on it again. Touch = beat with a croquet mallet. RoboEarth: basically a real-life "central brain" Skynet that's being tested so robots c... / Continue →

    Remember Cheetah, DARPA's 28-MPH robot that was confined to running tethered on a treadmill? Well now they've ditched the tether and created WildCat, a 16MPH (read: faster than you) running robot that can run free and as long as its on-board motor will allow. Scared yet? You... / Continue →

    This is the Nissan Patrol that's been modded by King of Customs to be driven from the middle of the back seat. Why? No clue, probably just because they could. Is it legal? Again, no clue. I know I'm probably starting to sound like a pretty piss-poor journalist right now, b... / Continue →
