Diet Coke and Mentos Bellagio Fountain
categories: Geeky, Videos

If you add a roll of Mentos to a bottle of Coca-Cola, you get a very large stream of pop shooting out of the top. If you do it 101 times in a synchronized fashion, you get an impressive recreation of the giant fountain at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The broken laptop I sold on ebay
categories: Funny, Geeky

Amir Massoud Tofangsazan allegedly sold his broken laptop on eBay, neglecting to inform the buyer that it was broken. Unfortunately for him, the buyer found many embarrassing pictures of, and apparently taken by, Amir on the laptop’s still functioning hard drive, and of course he posted them on the internet for everyone to see.

Swarm the dot com
categories: Geeky

Swarm is a new way to ‘browse’ the web. It is a graphical map of hundreds of websites, all connecting to each other. It updates itself every second with where people are going and coming from. Not surprisingly, ‘coming from’ is usually Google, and ‘going to’ is porn, but some interesting things turn up from time to time.

Rube Goldberg, eat your heart out
categories: Geeky, Videos

This video, which comes to us all the way from Japan, has about eight thousand different Rube Goldberg machines in it, and all you Rube Goldberg fans will be in Rube Goldberg heaven! Rube Goldberg. It also has an awesome Japanese jingle. Does anyone know what they’re saying and what it means?

Happy Memorial Day
categories: Geeky

For any non-Americans who are wondering what exactly Memorial Day is, it is a day that we take off work to celebrate… memorialness. And sleeping in. And not updating websites. And memorial-ity…ish…ness.

Shave Everywhere
categories: Funny, Geeky

I can only assume that sometime within the next couple of weeks the lawyers at Philips Norelco (who have obviously been out of town for a while) are going to come back to work, check out the new online ad campaign for the Philips Bodygroom, laugh, cry, fire every employee in the company, and finally take down this crazy ad. So watch it while you can.

Cartoon Character Skeletons
categories: Art, Geeky

Michael Paulus has rendered the skeletal systems of some popular cartoon characters as he imagines “they might resemble if one truly had eye sockets half the size of its head, or fingerless-hands, or feet comprising 60% of its body mass.”

Before you click the link, leave a guess of whose skeleton that is in the comments!

Ten highest-radiation cell phones
categories: Geeky

Nice to know that Motorola doesn’t occupy the top 9 spots on this list. Oh wait, they do! But don’t worry, I’m sure all this radiation information doesn’t really mean anything. Except that you’ve got a deadly cancer phone.

Bloody Finger Mail
categories: Geeky

Why write an email when you can send a message written in blood? Bloody Finger Mail has quickly become my number one form of correspondence. Love letters, job applications, you name it!

JCBSONG
categories: Geeky, Music, Videos

This is a really cool animated music video for JCBSONG by Nizlopi (whomever that is). You can’t go wrong with something that includes a backhoe, Optimus Prime and the A-Team! The song’s pretty catchy too.

Do Cockroaches Dream of Electric Sheep?
categories: Geeky, Videos

Either the cockroach in this video is controlling a robot, and thereby ushering in humanity’s inevitable enslavement to insect overlords, or it is thinking “What the hell am I doing on this ping pong ball?” Either way, it should be killed.

Octopus Camouflage
categories: Geeky, Videos

Cooler than cats and cuter than puppies, it’s everyone’s favorite pet the octopus. Witness here it’s awesome camouflaging abilities; guaranteed to be the coolest thing you’ll see all day. Believe it, or he’ll squirt you with ink!

Rat out your dormmate, earn $50
categories: Geeky

The University of Colorado administration, apparently fed up with giant 420 (pot for you squares) gatherings every year, took photographs of many of the participants and is offering $50 for their identification. And if you know the girl in the picture you should have sex with her and then turn her in. Oh yeah, you like that don’t you, you dirty girl.

Army Gangs
categories: Geeky

“In a storage yard in Taji, about 18 miles north of Baghdad, dozens of tanks were vandalized with painted gang symbols…” Yeah that’s right, street gang members are joining the U.S. army and they’re tagging tanks. Somehow I can’t think of anything more ridiculous right now.
