We’ve seen dinosaur lamps before, but these are a little more realistic than previous versions. I mean, I don’t see any feathers or whatever the hell the current theory is, but I’m pretty sure they didn’t look like this. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

rick and morty transcript

The transcript you are about to hear is real. Their names are Rick and Morty, and they aren’t innocent—especially Rick. Rick is guilty as hell.

Yes, you may recognize this extremely bizarre and vulgar court transcript from a real case in Georgia as it recently went viral. The team behind Rick and Morty threw together a recreation for Comic-Con because, well, the universe clearly could not go on without it.

For the love of God don’t watch this at work. Watch it when you’re alone and can properly handle it. It’s extremely NSFW, and the tears that will be streaming down your face aren’t going to help you get that promotion. [click to continue…]

There are, it seems, people out there who may need to be reminded of what an augmented reality game is – it’s a game that takes place in a virtual space overlayed within our real, physical world. That’s how Pokémon Go works, stashing free-range Pokémon, PokéStops and Gyms into locations within our world without them being, y’know, real.

This was apparently not a distinction that two Pokémon Go players near Isla Vista were aware of when they saw an object floating in the ocean that shared the same coloring as the standard Poké Balls used in the franchise. They swam out, collected the thing, only to discover it was a research buoy used to track kelp. Whoops!

The mix-up was shared by a member of the Marine Science Institute at UC Santa Barbara on the edhat Santa Barbara website, where the report included a plea to “Please stop taking our drifters from the ocean!” and a couple of hastily Photoshopped but thematically relevant pictures, which we’ve included for you below. Aren’t we nice. [click to continue…]


If you’ve ever looked at a Batman action figure and thought to yourself, “It’s good, but I wish it were, like, 50% more sinewy,” then Square-Enix’s Play Arts Kai Two-Face mashup has you covered.

Announced at San Diego Comic-Con as part of an upcoming range of Batman figures that mashes the Dark Knight with members of his rogues gallery, this particular entry fuses him with Two-Face, who prior to the horrific accident that turned him into a duality-based criminal was, of course, better known by the name of One-Face (It’s a fact. Don’t question it).

Anyway, the figure is gorgeous, if expensive. It’s priced at 21,384 yen, or roughly two-hundred American dollars, so you have to really know you want it. Of course, if you’re on the fence you could always flip a coin. Check out more photos of the thing below. [click to continue…]

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like if Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy decided to give Pokémon Go a try, this video is probably about as close as you’re going to get. YouTuber Joerg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel has made many crazy weapons in the past, but this time he’s built a Poké Ball Launcher specifically designed to… well, I won’t ruin it for you. Suffice to say, it’s a highly entertaining bit of video, even if it does take a minute or so to get going. Watch it below. [click to continue…]
