‘Earthquake-Proof’ Bed: My Life Isn’t Worth That $5,600 Aug30

‘Earthquake-Proof’ Bed: My Life Isn...

Because exploiting people’s fear of a crushing death is a great way to sell products, a Japanese furniture manufacturer is introducing this $5,600 earthquake-proof ‘Wood Luck’ bed. It has a specially treated cedar frame that can support up to 65 tons of pressure and keep you alive long enough to starve to death provided the earthquake happens in your sleep. If it happens in the shower you’re f***ed. Man, these people have got it all figured out. Because if the bed turns out to not actually be earthquake-proof guess who’s not gonna be around to complain? My God they must have gone to a good business school. Hit...

Furry Poodle Moth: I...

This is the recently discovered poodle moth photographed by taxonomist Dr Arthur Anker during a recent trip to Venezuela. Poodle moth isn’t its official name though, that’s just what people are calling it until it can be properly classified. *eying picture* I vote for Wampa moth....

Water Wigs: Split-Second Wigs Made For Bald Men With Exploding Water Balloons Aug30

Water Wigs: Split-Second Wigs Made For Bald Men Wi...

This is a series titled ‘Water Wigs’ by photographer Tim Tadder and his cohorts. It features bald men with wigs made from water as a result of thrown water balloons popping on their heads. Neat, but I still want mine made out of chocolate milk. We just finished shooting a new project we call Water Wigs. The concept is simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different. We found a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals. The result a new head of of water hair! We used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right...

This is Smash Mute, a giant $25 mute button to punch when those loud-ass local commercials come on during a football game. Although allegedly in December the FCC will require commercials be the same volume as the programming they so rudely interrupt, so it might become obsolete pretty quick....

This is a growing series of Pokemon reimagined as Tim Burton characters by artist Hat Boy. Is Hat Boy secretly Tim Burton in disguise? No. I mean I guess he COULD be, but he’s probably not. His name’s probably not even Tim. Or Hat Boy. Then who is this man of mystery?! Is it me?...

Oldest Known Insects...

Seen here looking suspiciously like monster tears, these 230-million year old pieces of amber each have an insect inside. One fly, and two mites. *adjusting pants crotch* A man can only hope there’s some dino DNA in there to clone from. The amber droplets, which are only 2-6 millimeters...

Two Planet, Two Star “Tatooine” Solar System Discovered Aug30

Two Planet, Two Star “Tatooine” Solar ...

A new solar system (full disclosure: actually billions of years old) with two planets orbiting twin suns has been discovered. It’s not the first planet discovered to be orbiting two suns, but it is the first system with MULTIPLE planets orbiting twin suns to be found. Outerspace: it’s f***ing nuts out there. Just absolutely bananas. Most stars like our sun are not singletons, but rather come in pairs that orbit each other. Scientists had found planets in these binary systems, so-called circumbinary planets with two suns like Tatooine in the “Star Wars” universe. “Kepler-47 shows us that binary stars can have...
