Cordyceps Fungus

The Cordyceps fungus treats its insect hosts not unlike the Xenomorphs treat their hosts in the Alien films. Cordyceps however, at least has the decency to kill its host before bursting forth from its body.

If I ever lose the use of my legs in a freak accident involving a massive mechanized farming implement, I want a wheelchair just like this one.

Family Guy vs. Street Fighter
categories: Geeky, Videos

M.U.G.E.N is a 2D fighting game engine apparently made of magic and powered by dreams. How else can one explain this video of Peter Griffin fighting Sakura?

If Spider-Man had a car…

I bet it would be a lot faster than this thing, but I’m sure the concept would be the same.

Donation Alarm Clock
categories: Crazy, Geeky

The SnÅ«zNLÅ«z alarm clock utilizes a rather ingenious method to wake you up in the morning – the fear of separating you from your hard earned money by giving it to an organization that you hate! Every time you hit the snooze button, a donation will be made from your bank account to the hated organization of your choosing.

The Cadbury Easter Creme Egg Conspiracy

I hope that despite corporate America’s attempt to swindle us out of the joy of Easter, that you have all had a great holiday weekend none the less. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, watch this video and see what those Cadbury bastards have done to our Easter Creme Eggs. Way to make baby Jesus cry Cadbury!

Whooooooooooosh

Over in France they’ve succeeded in getting a train to travel as fast as a modern airliner, while the speed of our trains over here in North America suggests we’ve regressed from powering them with coal, to powering them with excrement. Yes, the fireman stokes the engine by shovelling in cow manure.

How Police Interrogation Works
categories: Geeky

It’s not that I think a vast majority of you guys are one drink away from a lifetime in the clink and I want to help you avoid it. (I don’t.) It’s more that every time I watch The First 48, someone ends up incriminating themselves. So read, learn and stay out of jail. And remember, the best thing to do to avoid a police interrogation is to ask for a lawyer… or you know, not kill people and eat their organs.

Rock a Real Guitar Hero Guitar
categories: Geeky

Being a real life guitar god/rocket surgeon, I don’t need to spend hours a week playing either of the Guitar Hero games. For those of you who aren’t nearly as gifted as I am, you might want to consider creating a wireless controller out of a real guitar. At least then you’ll be able to experience what it is like to really rock… if only for a fleeting moment.

I’m Batman
categories: Geeky, Videos

Well, maybe I’m not. But quadruple the speed of this thing, shrink it down, and attach some kind of gunpowder propelled hook to it, and I will be!
