I Need One: Cleaning With A Powerful Burning Laser

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of one of Laser Age's 500-watt scrubbing lasers blasting the grime off a baking sheet. Typically I just use dish soap and some elbow grease, but that's only because I don't have a powerful burning laser to do the job for me. Show More Summary

Who Comes Up With This Stuff?: Dinosaurs As Food Treats

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is 'Jurassic Sweet', a mashup by artist Alejo Malia imagining dinosaurs as delicious treats. And here I've thought dinosaurs were sweet enough without a sugary coating. Speaking of -- what do you think dinosaurs smelled like? Because in my mind velociraptors smelled like Axe body spray. Show More Summary

Melting & Recasting Aluminum Cans With A Mini-Foundry

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a how-to video created by Youtuber Grant Thompson - "The King of Random" of how to melt aluminum soda cans, make them into metal biscuits, then recast them into something else (in this case, a sword). Pretty cool. You know what would be even cooler? Melting a soda can with laser vision while AN ENEMY IS DRINKING FROM IT. Show More Summary

Knife Thrower Hits Assistant Twice, Almost Stabs In Face

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video from some Lithuanian talent show of some guy who claims his skill is knife throwing, although I suspect his real talent is killing assistants. When attempting to knife giant playing cards out of his assistant's hands, he manages to hit him with the knives both times (1:17 and 1:30). Show More Summary

Dreams Really Do Come True: A Sailor Moon Wedding

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a series of photos by photographer Shannon Cottrell of the Sailor Moon themed wedding between Michelle Nguyen and her now husband. I don't really know a lot about Sailor Moon because my mom never let me watch it because she was afraid I'd fall in love with a cartoon character (I'd done it before), but I do appreciate the theme.

It's Eating My Son!: Sweet Jaws Themed Baby Bed

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is the Jaws themed baby bed built by sculptor Joseph Reginella for his friends who were expecting a baby. You're gonna need a bigger boat. Pretty awesome. You know what kind of bed I had as a kid? None, I never slept -- I've been awake my whole life. Show More Summary

International Space Station Passing In Front Of The Moon

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is the video captured by astrophotographer (that's somebody who takes pictures of astros) Gadi Eidelheit featuring the International Space Station passing in front of the moon. It's crazy to think there are a group of humans orbiting the earth up there, you know? And even further out there? Aliens. Show More Summary

12-Gauge Shotgun Versus Frozen 5-Pound Gummi Bear

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of a guy blasting one of those 5-pound gummi bears with a.22 rifle, then a 12-gauge shotgun slug, then he freezes the bear in liquid nitrogen and blasts it again with the shotgun. The results were very satisfying. Like a really good bite of dessert. Show More Summary

Wait, Who Invited You?: Beer Pong Dominating Robot

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of Empire Robotic's Versaball robot demonstrating its beer pong skills. Obviously, it's the exact opposite kind of robot you want showing up at your next keg party. Or one with chainsaws or machine guns for arms. If you're...Show More Summary

Crazy Slingshot Guy Turns Four Revolvers Into Fully Automatic Machine Gun

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of everyone's favorite German slingshot connoisseur Joerg Sprave demonstrating the fully automatic machine gun 'Revolverception' he made by mounting four revolvers (technically cap-guns since gun laws are much stricter in Germany) onto a drill-powered spinner. Show More Summary

Tigger?!: Slow Motion Of Tiger Jumping For Meat

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a brief portrait-mode video (that makes two in one day -- get your shit together, people!) from the Glen Afric Farm in South Africa featuring a tiger jumping for a hunk of meat in slow-motion. Pretty beautiful, right? Not soShow More Summary

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is the photo (even less convincing closeup after the jump) allegedly taken by 66-year-old retired electrician John Rodriquez while fishing on the Hillsborough River near Tampa, Florida. He claims he saw Bigfoot (known by Florida natives as the Swamp Ape, Skunk Ape, or I'd Still Hit It) wading through the water as his boat passed. Show More Summary

Neill Blomkamp Would Have Made His 'Alien' Sequel Look Like This

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

Though he already lived the universal dream of shaving Matt Damon's head, Elysium and District 9 director Neill Blomkamp apparently still has at least one other, still unfulfilled sci-fi fantasy. On New Year's Day, Blimkamp revealed on Instagram that he at least previously hoped to direct a follow-up in the Alien franchise. Show More Summary

B Is For Buttcheeks: Human Anatomy Inspired Alphabet

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is the human anatomy inspired alphabet designed by Venezuelan illustrator Laura Facci. At first I was disappointed to see the names of all the body parts didn't start with the letters they represent, but then I remembered the artist is Venezuelan, and they speak Spanish in Venezuela.

Feather Tea: Japanese Cafe Full Of Domesticated Owls

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

Fukuro no Mise is a cafe in Tsukishima, Japan, with a bunch of domesticated owls that patrons can interact with (have sit on own hand/shoulder, take pictures with). It's extremely popular though, so you have to get in line before they open, pay 2,000 (~$17), then come back at your call time and you get to hang out with the owls for an hour. Show More Summary

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a nearly 3-minute supercut of every time Carl Sagan says millions, billions or trillions in the original PBS 'Cosmos' television series. How many times does he say it? I lost count about a minute in, but I imagine it's somewhere in the millions. Show More Summary

Know When To Pick Your Fights: Man Challenges Gaston To Push-Up Contest At Disney World, Loses Miserably

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a portrait mode video (WHEN WILL YOU PEOPLE LEARN?!) of some hot-shot tourist (if there is such a thing) challenging infamous musclebound creeper Gaston to a push-up contest at Disney World. He loses. Although, to his credit, Gaston's pushups are pretty weak -- particularly the one-handed ones. Show More Summary

Gnarly!: ATV Wheels Replaced With Ripsaw Tank Treads

3 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of a 2009 Polaris Sportsman 850 XP that's had the wheels replaced with Howe and Howe's Ripsaw tank treads. My God, what I wouldn't give to run over a pile of my enemies with that thing. The looks on their faces when they see me coming, now that -- that's the sort of thing I daydream about.
