    Surprisingly Cathartic: Video Animation Of Little People Getting Tossed Around Like Ragdolls
    crowd-dynamics-animation.jpg This is 'I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up', an animation created by Dave Fothergill testing a new crowd dynamics feature that causes characters to flail and struggle after getting knocked down. I don't know about you, but if the Giant Spinning Metal Bar Of Death were a ride at an amusement park, I would ride it. AND keep my hands raised over my head the whole time. At least until they're ripped off. What can I say, I'm a thrill-seeker. I tried pitching a Wal-Mart style Black Friday Trampling ride to Disney but they weren't interested. Your loss, Walt, those tea cups aren't going to keep people visiting forever. Keep going for the video.
  • The Zing Double Down King: KFC Korea's Even More Extreme Version Of The Double Down Sandwich

    The Zing Double Down King: KFC Korea's Even More Extreme Version Of The Double Down Sandwich
    korean-kfc-double-down-sandwich.jpg This is the Zing Double Down King, a wonderfully named sandwich from KFC South Korea that features not only bacon like the Double Down available here in the U.S., but a burger patty as well. Meaning it includes all three major carnivorous food groups: chicken, beef and pork. No word on the nutritional information, but rest assured it will kill you. Shhhhhhh -- can you hear that? "I don't hear anything." Exactly, that's the sound of my heart not beating after I stuff two of these f***ers in my mouth. *BRAP!* That was my death fart. Thanks to JONES, who is already on a plane to North Korea to try one. AHAAHAHAHAH, WRONG KOREA, HOMIE.

    Ouch, My Tongue!: Realistic Cactus Cupcakes
    cacti-cupcakes-1.jpg These are the realistic cacti cupcakes created by baker Alana Jones-Mann. She has a tutorial on her website HERE in case you want to try making some yourself. Granted yours will not look as good, but at least you tried. Here's what I'm going to do: bake some cactus cupcakes and serve them at my next party. I will do the same thing for my party after that. But then the party AFTER THAT ONE, I'll just put actual spikey cacti on the cupcakes then sit back and watch while all three of my friends impale their tongues. It will be my favorite party of all time. Keep going for a couple more shots.

    IKEA Remakes The Shining's Tricycle Scene To Advertise New Late Night Hours
    ikea-the-shining-commercial.jpg This is a commerical from IKEA Singapore advertising their new late-night (open till 11PM) hours with a remake of the iconic tricycle scene from Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'. What's your favorite scene in the movie? Mine's the one with the naked lady in the bath of room 237. Unfortunately, in just a matter of seconds, that scene also quickly becomes my least favorite. I don't do rotting ghost boobs. Keep going for the commercial.
  • Toys R Us Pulls Breaking Bad Action Figures From Shelves After Florida Mom Starts Petition

    Toys R Us Pulls Breaking Bad Action Figures From Shelves After Florida Mom Starts Petition
    breaking-bad-action-figures.jpg Toys R Us has announced it will pull the Walter White and Jesse Pinkman action figures it's stores have been selling after Florida mom Susan Schrivjer started an online petition to have the Breaking Bad figures removed. You know, despite the fact the toys were only sold in the adult action figure section of the store and not alongside Barbie and Transformers. Hey, everybody needs a worthless cause in life. *runs to Twitter to see if anybody's started a 'FloridaMom' satire account yet*
    Schrivjer's petition had picked up plenty of media coverage. Even Walter White himself, actor Bryan Cranston, weighed in, tweeting, " 'Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.' I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest." Using the name Susan Myers on Change.org, Schrivjer had noted the store's "selection of toys for children of all ages." However, she added, "their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values." "Kids mimic their action figures, if you will," she told the station. "Do you want your child in an orange jumpsuit?"
    It's weird FloridaMom took offense to Breaking Bad but doesn't care that the store sells horror movie action figures (but they'll make me want to kill my friends!) and Grand Theft Auto. I suspect the Breaking Bad figures just hit a little too close to home. "Because of the meth?" I bet she or a close friend had a drug problem at some point. This is Florida we're talking about, after all. Which, FUN FACT: no matter where you travel in Florida, you're never further than 8-feet from a bag of meth. Thanks to Derek, but not my roommate Derek, because my roommate Derek is fictional and only lives in the pages of Geekologie. I mean, he used to be real, but I killed him.

    Prizm knows what music you like, and wants to fit the mood
    Our music helps shape our mood. When we’re feeling sad, we listen to somber music, because listening to k-pop just won’t do.
