Silly Gecko, Even You Can't Stick to Teflon


(Video Link)

Geckos are known for their sticky feet and Teflon is known for its non-stick surface? Put the two together and who will win? Unsurprisingly, the gecko loses, but at least he gives it the old college try.

The Most Imaginitive Playground Around



From Easter Island statues to  crashed plane to climbable lighthouses,these playgrounds by Monstrum are some of the coolest I've ever seen. In fact, it kind of makes me want to go to Denmark just so I can go play inside the belly of a whale or climb on the webs dangling under a spider's belly.

Now That's A Tasty Rug



They might not have pizza curtains like you've seen in that commercial yet, but you can get a pizza rug at least. While it's not really edible, the upside is that it's not going to rot or leak grease all over your carpet.

This Octopus Needed a New Home

You probably already knew that octopuses are smart and are known to use tools, but did you know that they also enjoy mobile homes in the form of tin cans? Just lugging this thing around seems beyond tiring, but he certainly seems reluctant to give up his can.

So That's Where Orcs Come From



The Lord of the Rings may quickly discuss how orcs were created, but somehow this makes much more sense. Take one pudgy-faced cat, squish it's head good and bam! You've got an orc.

Dramatic Lamb


(Video Link)

While the creator of this video says the lamb is making that face because it's shocked, the whole thing just seems way too much like Dramatic Chipmunk minus the audio. If someone was so inclined to remix this one, it would work great with the music as well.

Excuse Me Sir, But Your Trash Can Just Doesn't Fit In



Yes, this is the most epic Mario-themed bathroom ever created. No, I still don't recommend trying to crawl through any of the pipes in this house to go looking for extra lives and gold coins. All you will find is a terrible smell and tons of bacteria.

Oh, and just joking about the trash can, it just happens to be sitting in a bad part of the room for the theme to work. As it turns out, the rest of the room is decorated with Donkey Kong and Pac Man, you can see more pictures over at the link.

11 Cool Gadgets to Help Geeks Lose Weight



Let's be honest, many of us are interested in losing weight, but it just seems so tedious. The trick is to find something that works with your lifestyle so you can maintain your interest. That's why Weighthacker's list of gadgets to help geeks lose weight is so useful for those of us with an interest in technology. From smartphone tools to laptop desks, there are some great ideas on there.

Of course, like any good list of gadgets, many of them are pretty darn expensive, so be prepared to shell out a lot of cash if you actually want to own everything listed there. Personally, if they could just find a way to get David Tennant in his role as The Doctor to travel through space and time with you while you worked out, I'd have 0% body fat by now.

Because Drinking and Gaming Are A Great Combo



If you're a geek who loves both alcohol and gaming, then you'll certainly love Arkeg. The system is pretty sweet as it comes with 69 games, a 5 lb CO2 tank, a 24" hi-def LCD, a sweet sound sound system and, of course, a nice big cabinet to store the keg of your choice. On the other hand, for almost $4000, a few six packs and an X Box could be just as good.

Dark Shadows Really Was Dark…Once

If you enjoy Being Human, The Vampire Diaries or any other supernatural dramas, then you owe a debt of gratitude to Dark Shadows. That’s because it was the first show to bring supernatural elements into a drama format. Of course, if all you know about the series are the previews from the new movie, then you might be shocked to hear that it’s a drama at all. Since the new movie doesn’t seem like a great place to learn about this groundbreaking series, let’s take a look at the show and how it finally got mashed into the Tim Burton film coming out tomorrow. For those interested in catching the series, don't worry, this is a spoiler free zone. Image via mediafury [Flickr]

It Didn’t Start Out So Dark

These days, the show is famous for its supernatural storylines, but nothing of that nature was present when the show was first pitched. It all started in 1965, when Dan Curtis had a dream about a mysterious young woman on a train. He pitched the idea to ABC, where it was quickly greenlit. Art Wallace was hired to create a story from Curtis’ dream and he came up with a tale about a young orphan, Victoria Winters, trying to discover her past in the strange town of Collinsport, Maine.

When the show premiered, it did fairly poorly both due to its use of mostly unknown actors and its long, drawn out storylines. Even as the show was struggling though, it was still innovative, being one of the first soaps to incorporate flashbacks and parallel time lines. Six months into the show, things started to become more interesting when ghosts were introduced into the story. While it’s not all that rare for shows to use the supernatural these days, at the time, it was unprecedented and the show quickly increased in notoriety.
