    This is Lizzy Rae performing For Today Makes A Birthday Cake, a metal song that doubles as a birthday cake recipe (previously: her shepherd's pie recipe song which I made and was pretty decent). I was so inspired I tried to write a country song about my mom's meatloaf recipe b... / Continue →

    This is the giant rocket firework wheel Colin Furze built to celebrate his 2,000,000th Youtube subscriber. Congratulations. I had a Youtube channel once but it got banned for copyright violations, despite the fact I filmed all those videos off MY television. I PAID FOR THAT ... / Continue →

    It's not actually a billion, it's just a lot. I'm not really good with numbers over a thousand. Or letters past N. That tail end of the alphabet can be tricky. Any letters hanging around Q, V and Z aren't to be trusted in my book. Keep going for the video, but skip to 1:20... / Continue →

    So today's my birthday. It's my 640th year on this planet as an immortal warlock. I actually wrote all these articles yesterday so I could go out and celebrate my birthday at midnight, so, honestly, there's no telling where I am right now. Was there a guy sleeping on your co... / Continue →

    So today is my birthday (I'm nearly 600) and I'm gonna cut out of here early so I can go enjoy the day (but ultimately wind up lost in my own mind trying to figure out where everything went wrong). I'll be back sometime tomorrow, well rested and ready to write. Or bleary eyed... / Continue →

    I swear this is an internet classic that I saw and posted years ago, but after a search I couldn't find it on the site so here it is anyways (or again). This is a video of a bunch of dudes attaching explosives to the ends of giant hammers and then smacking them on the ground. ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of two kids who are (perhaps unknowingly) cosplaying as two Hobbits that are about to wind up on the dinner table of the orcs behind them. The shot is from a school in Spain where Carnival is in full effect right now (among other places) and where I should be ou... / Continue →

    Yes, that's me. Yes, I'm a wizard. No, that's not my DeLorean (you don't need a time machine when you know magic!). This is my 11,000th Geekologie article. It seems like only yesterday I was writing my 10,000th, but time flies when you're in the middle of a lifelong bender.... / Continue →
