    This is a series of coloring book pictures with the characters' skeletons drawn in by artist Chris Panda. I don't think the pictures are actually from coloring books though, I think Chris drew the black ink part too in the STYLE of a coloring book. What I do know is I'll neve... / Continue →

    This a shot of an actual Christmas tree taken by x-ray photographer Nick Veasey. Let's see here...a pair of shoes, a watch, booze, a wrench set, a camera, perfume and a smartphone. Not a bad haul! Me? I'm hoping for a bunch of airplane bottles and lotto scratchers. You kn... / Continue →

    This is a small series of photos of our sun (you and I -- we had a boy together) in the ultraviolet and x-ray spectrums. As you can see, it looks nothing like what it does when you're just staring at it in real life. Then it just looks all orangish-white and your eyes start h... / Continue →

    You know what I want to get into? Taxidermy. Just kidding, but I would get into a bed made of pillows and sleep for like two weeks straight. You know, or a car with a stranger. Candy or not, he's cute! 'oritsunagumono' (translated as 'things folded and connected') is a col... / Continue →

    YOW YOW! Check out the vertebrae on that one! And don't even get me started on the coccyx. Boy what I wouldn't give to be a cast on her, amirite? Calm down, that could be a man for all we know (I've been pretending it is!). The "Eizo: Pin-up Calendar 2010" is really partic... / Continue →

    Casttoos are tattoos for casts. The company makes a number of different standard designs (flames, tribal stuff, etc), but the coolest available is a custom version of your actual brokeback bones. You just email the company a scan of your x-ray, and they send you a waterproof ... / Continue →

    The x-ray umbrella is an umbrella with x-rays all over the damn place. It does NOT allow you to see through a woman's shirt. Unless she's wearing white and it's pouring out, in which case, yes, it does do that. And I've got to tell you: as a guy who's broken his arm twice in... / Continue →

    Flickr user Reintji went and took a bunch of x-rays of video game consoles and controllers, from both today and yesteryear. And also, the future. Just kidding, no future. If time machines existed you'd know it because I'd be writing steamy romance novels about the time I ban... / Continue →

    THEY'RE DINOSAURS! No wonder I was always so drawn to the lumbering giants so much. Admit it -- I'm not the only one who's lighted his saber during the Hoth battle scene, right? Right? AT-AT Walker X-Rayed: It's a Dinosaur! [gizmodo]... / Continue →

    Allegedly David Steele, a pervert, is selling 30 and 58mm lens filters capable of seeing through many kinds of fabric. I've got the feeling they only work with sheer wet t-shirts and fishnets, but whatever: boobs yo, boobs. Each lens costs $200 and purchase includes a free tr... / Continue →
