    I actually just stumbled across this monster while doing research for rideable cats for my last post. I do research! Granted it never shows, but sometimes I will Google something if it tickles my fancy. And rideable cat mounts definitely tickle my fancy. You? You try tickl... / Continue →

    This is the first ever 3-D gif music video, created for 'Tendency', a single from bands Estate and Liquid Pegasus. Personally, I prefer my Pegasuses solid, but that's just me and I don't drink tiger penis tea either thinking it's gonna make my boners bigger. The video featu... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Baja 100 racer Adrian 'The Wildman' Cenni performing a 360-degree barrel roll before a race in Ensenada, Mexico. They call it the world's first 360-barrel roll, but at least a handful of other people (including Rob Dyrdek) have done it before. I dunno... / Continue →

    Because what's the goal of science if not to kill everything, in 2006 researchers dredged up an extremely old quahog clam. Unaware of its age, they immediately froze the poor bastard, only later to calculate it was 400 years old and even LATER to discover i wasn't 400, but 507... / Continue →

    This is the stainless steel handgun that was 3-D printed by the folks at Solid Concepts in Texas (where else?) using a direct metal laser sinistering (DMLS) technique. Impressive. Not impressive enough for me to want to fire, but I've never had a gun explode up in my hands be... / Continue →
