2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is Poland's PL-01 Stealth Tank. It will be "the world's first fully operational stealth tank when it goes into service in 2018" (if you exclude all the other stealth tanks that have already been developed in secret that the government hides from us). Show More Summary

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of Duncan the boxer running on the beach. Duncan was born with severely deformed back legs, so his adoptive family had them amputated. And now he has learned to run with just his front two legs. Cool, but I'd still want some back wheels if I was him. Show More Summary

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a video compilation of Mike Tyson fights with Street Fighter sound effects added. Just like the title says. Could you imagine being on the receiving end of one of those punches?

This is a video of the Carnegie Hall Ensemble Orchestra performing 43 separate cartoon theme songs in five minutes. Just a bit of each song though, not the whole thing. That would have taken way longer. Like me getting dressed this morning. Show More Summary

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is the t-rex chase scene from Jurassic Park recreated entirely out of cardboard, markers, and bad acting by the folks at CineFix. I also embedded a side-by-side comparison with the original so you can see just how closely they nailed it. Show More Summary

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

Because the future is rapidly approaching, doctors are currently conducting human trials on the ability to put critically injured patients in suspended animation in order to buy more time to save them.

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is the arm of 18-year old Norwegian fast food fan Stian Ytterdahl. He got a McDonald's receipt tattooed on it. Why? Because who doesn't love McFlurries? I still can't believe it. I mean, I love fast food as much as the next guyShow More Summary

Hello, 911? I'm Bleeding: iPhone Case With Folding Knife

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

2 weeks agoOdd : Geekologie

This is a side-by-side comparison of a 31-year old Hugh Jackman in Wolverine (2001) vs a 44-year old Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine (2013).
