Take that Volvo: Hyundai Comes Out with Their Own Stunt Commercial

Apparently as a response to Volvo’s commercial featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme straddling a pair of semi trucks Hyundai has come out with their own advertisement featuring brave stunt-people doing things that you shouldn’t try at home. Here they’re demonstrating the new car’s ability to drive by itself. So they start out with drivers who then …

Moderately Useful: Multitool Belt Buckle

How do you keep your pants up? If you’re like me then the real question if how do you ever get your pants up? Keeping them up has never really been an issue. But I wear a belt anyhow, really makes those cut-offs look more professional.  I don’t, however, wear a belt with a fancy …

Free the Beard: All Your Favorite Characters with Beards

If you haven’t noticed yet, because you never go outside and this is your first time on the Internet, beards are very in right now. Why do you think I grew such a handsome beard? “You’re clean-shaven.” I know, I’m a bearded liar. Vanja Mrgan has imagined what different famous characters would look like with …

Want: Never Ending Slinky

Every true geek wants just a few simply things in life, a decent bookshelf, a nice computer, and a perpetual motion machine to power the world and impress their friends. This doesn’t qualify as any of those but it is closets to the last so I’m going to tentatively put it in that category.  We …

Demon Motorcycle Enslaves China

Let’s see who that title draws in. I don’t think this bike has actually enslaved anyone, yet, but t has gained a following of thousands of cats and red-headed children. I’m not really sure what all that means, I just report what the voice in my head tell me to. “Are you psychotic?” I don’t …

Want: Laser-Guided Tactical Neck Tie

Still can’t think of what to get dad for Father’s Day? How about a laser-guided tactical neck tie? He’ll love it. He may even put you back in the will, but I’m not making any promises after what you did. It’s a good thing he didn’t just beat you to death right then and there. …

This Watermelon Bites Back: Beautiful Alligator Carved from Watermelon

  Who are these people and why do they get all the talent where it comes to fruit and vegetable carving? I can’t even carve a decent pumpkin without one of those stupid patterns that never turn out how I hope. I think it’s probably a patience thing. I don’t have the patience to wait …

Want: Sneaky Hidden Swimming Pool

I’ve seen a couple of variations of hidden swimming pools over the years but I think this one wins. Look at the image above and see if you can spot the pool. If you think you can let me just tell you, you’re wrong. You may see the edge of the pool, I’ll give you …

Fatality: 7-Year-Old Black Belt

Until I saw this video I’ve never had any fear that any number of first graders posed me any real threat. Now I see the error in my hubris. If 7-year-old Mahiro came after me in a dark alley or a well-lit gymnasium I’m pretty sure she could tear out my still beating heart, show …

Want: Functioning Titan Sword

Once in a while you come across an idea that eats at you until you are finally able to carry it to fruition. I built a tiny cabinet out of yard sticks last weekend for example. The results were bad enough that I’ll either have to try the whole mess again or just give up. …
