The Dinosaur Versus The Bumble Bee


(Video Link)

The best part is the way the dino's adorably stubby arms keep smacking the poor little bumble bee.

This Rum Tastes A Little Fishy



Sure the Mon Calamari might not actually come from under the sea, but there's no way you can convince me that something that looks like that and has "Calamari" in its name doesn't smell like fish and if it made rum, I'm certain it would rub off.

The Post-It Note Video Game


(Video Link)

It no doubt took a lot of time and effort to create a stop-motion video game out of nothing but Post-It notes, but the animators at prestigious French engineering school École nationale supérieure des mines de Saint-Étienne proved that their dedication to the project was certainly worth the time investment.

What Do You Mean It Won't Fit?


(Video Link)

Poor guy, he just wants to show his new friend where he lives, but either his friend refuses to come inside or his owners refuse to let his friend in. Whatever the reason, it's very frustrating for the little guy.

If Pixar Made The Avengers



Now that Disney owns the rights to Marvel, it only makes sense that they would combine their newest acquisition with an earlier one. If they did, it would almost certainly look very similar to what artist J.M. Walter came up with in this great illustration.

The 5 Worst Animal Mothers Ever



Last week Miss C linked to a story about 9 bad animal mothers, but if you just can't get enough terrible critter parenting, then you might just enjoy this Cracked article with even more wretched mothers. For example, the Tasmanian devil that places its own form of natural selection on its own babies after giving birth to a litter of around 50 pups:
Because there are only four milk spigots, only four pups will survive. Plain and simple. As soon as they're born, there's a race to see who gets one of mommy's feeding nozzles. Whoever makes it there first and can hold on wins.

The rest simply don't survive, but believe it or not, they're only ranked #5 on the list of crummy critter moms.

Well, That's One Solution


(Video Link)

How do you deal with having outside cats when you live in an upstairs apartment? Well, you could teach your cats to just wait outside your lobby for you to get home...or you could train them to grab on tightly to a chair and make a budget kitty elevator. It might not be as practical, but it sure is cooler.

Now This Guy Is A Real Game Master



The best thing about Youtube user 16bitghost's absurdly huge gaming set up is that the 24 console areas still aren't enough for his PS3. Seriously though, how do you even switch between them all on your TV system? I get annoyed just going between the DVD player, cable, Wii and X Box, I can't imagine flipping through all of these options.

The Purrfect Police Officer



Iemon might just be the world's cutest cop. That's because the little kitten was hired more for PR than his detective skills. Even so, he's certainly doing a great job, even if his main duties are laying on the station's front desk. At least this will be one police station short on rats.

For The Truly Lazy Rich



Standing while taking a shower is so tacky. Laying down though, now that is luxurious. If you just can't bear falling behind in the shower style wars, then you'd better get your own Dornbracht Horizontal Shower.

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


(Video Link)

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.

Great Pictures From the Boston Comic Con



I know we post cosplay photos from the San Diego Comic Con every year, but while it may be the biggest comic book convention, it's far from the only one. A few weeks ago, Boston held their yearly convention and the costumes are utterly delightful as you can see in this great gallery over on Geeks Are Sexy.

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.

Your Case Mod Wants to Step Out On the Town
