    What the -- get down from there! This is a short video of a BMW that believes it can fly during a rally race. Thankfully, it doesn't crash into the group of bystanders at the bottom of the hill. I was afraid that was going to happen. It didn't though, so that's a relief. A... / Continue →

    This is a video of GoFast jetpack pilot Nick Macomber flying around the spire of Denver's Four Seasons Hotel, some 565-feet (~172-meters) in the air. That looks like fun. I can only hope we're all traveling by jetpacks before I die. Sure they'll have to bury all powerlines t... / Continue →

    This is the 1982 TRON arcade game joystick that's been modified into a car's gear shifter by If Industries. My buddy Terry would f***ing love this because he loves all things that glow blue. He is kind of special in the derogatory sense. Using a joystick for the TRON arcad... / Continue →

    So apparently there's an Easter egg in Google maps that suggests traveling by dragon if you're trying to get from Brecon Brecons in South Wales to Snowdon in Wales (links to actual map). Amazingly, the trip is estimated to only take 21 minutes by dragon, and a whopping 3.5-hou... / Continue →

    This is a picture and video of Highway N329 in Holland. 500-meters of the highway's exterior lines have been painted with glow-in-dark paint, a corroboration between artist Daan Roosegaarde and Dutch civil engineers. Heck yeah, now paint me some glow-in-the-dark lanes to the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, ... / Continue →

    This is the R/C Bullet, a radio controlled car built by Nic Case, who just set the world record for fastest R/C car when it hit 188.87MPH. For reference, that is infinitely faster than I am running right now (I'm laying on the couch in the break room). There's a video of the ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Corridor Digital imagining what it would look like if Superman had a camera attached to his head. It's mostly lots of flying around avoiding powerlines, although he does stop a robbery in progress. You know, would be cool if Superman really did have a cam... / Continue →

    These are shots of Deadmau5's Ferrari 458 Italia wrapped in a Nyan Cat theme (complete with EPICLULZ! license plate). Apparently he plans on driving it in the Gumball 3000 rally this year if his single-seater BAC Mono isn't built in time. Wow, must be nice having a Ferrari ba... / Continue →

    I meant to post this earlier but I'm stupid and forgetful. "No kidding, you also forgot ugly." You sure know how to make a guy feel special. This is a drone-shot video of the 17-story Verrückt water slide set to open at the Schlitterbahn (literally, Shitbottom) waterpark in ... / Continue →

    This is some dash-cam footage from Russia (where else?) of a guy in a Toyota Camry constantly trying to get in front of and stop another Ruskie in a Nissan MPV, presumably to stab him with the the knife he has. He finally gets the guy to swerve off the road into a ditch, then ... / Continue →

    This is Batman's Tumbler inspired golfcart for sale on eBay. I actually posted about it back in 2010 too (I have a memory like an elephant -- penis too), but now it's for sale. Will you and I be going halvsies? NOPE. It's $17,500, which is a little bit out of my price range... / Continue →

    This is the $15,000 Sportsman WV850 H.O. from Polaris. That's a pretty poor name. I would have called it the Unstoppable Earthf***er or something with STYLE. The all-terrain military inspired vehicle includes unpoppable TerrainArmor™ non-pneumatic tires which can stand up to... / Continue →

    Meet Schildi. Schildi was a pet turtle living in Germany when he was abandoned (or escaped), and lost a leg in the real world. The real world -- it'll take your f***ing legs. Thankfully Schildi was rescued, and vets were able to amputate his mangled limb and replace it with ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a tether car (a little nitro powered car attached by wire to a pivoting stake in the center of the track to take advantage of centrifugal force) getting up to 205MPH. It's not the first time we've seen a tether car breaking 200MPH on Geekologie, it's just th... / Continue →

    Voyager 1, launched this month 36 years ago, has, according to scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, officially entered interstellar space. Me? I just officially entered a wet t-shirt contest, although I'm starting to second-guess my chances of winning considering m... / Continue →

    This is a replica of 'The Homer', the car Homer designed in The Simpsons after being given a job at Powell Motors by his half brother Herb in the season two episode 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou?'. This real-life version was built by Porcubimmer Motors, and while not an exact rep... / Continue →

    Möbius strips: hands down my second favorite kind of strip behind stripteases. This is a video of Andy from The Royal Institution of Great Britain showing off a levitating superconductor riding a Möbius strip made out of 2,000 individual magnets. Whey the hell we can't have ... / Continue →

    This is the homemade Batmobile Redditor aggierogue3 spotted driving near Fort Worth, Texas this week. I don't know about you, but I could barely tell the difference from the one used in the 1989 movie. I like how it has exposed machine guns on the front fender, I bet the cops... / Continue →

    This is Warp Dogs, a small series of Photoshopped pictures by Benjamin Grelle featuring dogs hanging their heads out car windows while traveling at warp speed. Dogs love doing that. Dogs also love sleeping. I also love sleeping. Does that make me a dog? No, but my doctor s... / Continue →
