This is the $25 Deer Bong, a plastic 16+ ounce, 5-point deer horn replica to bong beer out of. You just fill the horn, then tilt it back and let the good times roll. Or puke. Also that looks like a pretty small hole to pour beer into, I’m not great at pouring beer (or peeing in empties) when I’ve already been drinking. This is starting to seem way more complicated than *stabs key in can, shotguns it* WHOOOO! “Was that a Fanta grape soda?” I’m a roll model, bro. Still, don’t let me stop you from buying one of these for your next Viking themed college party. PROTIP: build a Viking longship and fill it with ice and cold ones. Remember, if you build it he will come. “Erik The Red?!” What? No *peels Fanta label off to reveal Bud Light can* me — I was talking about me.
Keep going for a couple more shots and a couple videos of all the fun to be had while I speculate if those points are hollow and just how hard this thing is gonna be to keep sanitary.

This is a video of a spider breeder discussing the skeleton tarantula (named because the pale markings on its legs look like bones) while opening up the egg sac she nonchalantly stole from a female. Well that doesn’t seem very nice. But just look at all those cute little babies. Now imagine them in your hair. Oh my God they’re in your hair! *girlfriend punches shoulder* Haha, she hates it when I do that. And pretty much everything else. Why are you even with me? Oh riiiiiiiiiight. Right right right. “What did she say?” Because she’s imaginary.

This is a video of a helicopter using an air saw to quickly trim some tree limbs growing near power lines. The 830-pound saw, which consists of ten 2-foot blades spinning at 4,000 RPM on an aluminum shaft, trims in minutes what it could take a land-based crew days to complete. Still, it’s crazy to watch those blades swinging so close to those power lines. Man, remember when we were kids and used to try to fly our kites into power lines to gain superpowers? “I never did that.” And you can’t shoot lightning now either, can you?
Keep going for the whole video.

This is the $6 Make Your Co-Workers Hate You Pen available from Perpetual Kid (like Peter Pan). Available in light blue, navy, green, pink, red, or silver exteriors, the pen has integrated fingernail clippers on the non-writing side. Man, hearing somebody cut their nails someplace they shouldn’t — it sends shivers down my spine, like nails on a chalkboard. It’s weird how so many terrible sounds are fingernail related. I used to go to this bar down the street from my apartment and one day one of the regulars started cutting his fingernails right at a bar table. Then, I kid you not, he took off his Adidas slides and started doing his toenails too! Notice how I said I used to go to this bar? I moved. I miss that place though, I really do.
Keep going for a couple more products shots because I’m not really sure why, you get the point.

This is some home security cam footage of two robotic vacuums who, working next to each other in a split-level living room/kitchen for so long but always denying their feelings, decided the product life cycle is too short to live a sexless existence, so one mounts the other and rides it until morning. “Still a better love story than Twilight.” I thought Twilight was good. The movies at least. I mean maybe not good enough to get a Twilight tattoo unless you’re a crazy person and like the drunkest you’ve ever been, but– “Let me see it.” My girlfriend made me promise not to show it to anyone.
Keep going the video while I Yelp best ass tattoo cover ups, but the eloping starts at 1:10, followed by the discovery of the two lovebirds the following morning.

This is a short video of a dog in a Chuckie costume COMIN’ TO STAB AND KEEL YOU. Oooooor give you all the kissies. Whatever the case, I would die happy. 10/10 best Halloween ever except for the one I made out with a Ninja Turtle.

This is a video of a kid test-riding the wooden roller coaster a team assembled out of stacked desks and 2x4s and plywood in their school’s gymnasium for a school festival. Now I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume this did not take place in the U.S. I’m just saying, the most exciting ride I saw at my niece’s recent school festival was face painting, and I couldn’t even get Spider-Man because apparently all the Barbs and Lindas in the PTA voted against any superhero imagery.
Keep going for the video while I speculate if they’re gonna set off the fireworks inside our outside.

This is a worthwhile video of skateboarder Matt Tomasello performing some crazily inventive tricks, some involving transforming skateboards he developed himself. What a visionary. This is the kind of guy you could just let run your company and if anybody asked what the hell he’s doing you’d shush them and tell them to “let him work his magic.” There’s no question if Matt applied his outside-the-box thinking to other fields we could solve the plastic in the oceans problem and probably already be living on Mars right now. But for now, we’ll have to settle for this bitchin’ video, which I’m cool with since the world is going to end first thing next year anyways. “Y2K20.” It was in it for the long con all along.
Keep going for the video.

Because why not let everybody else parked at the mall know you’ve considered the logistics and profitability of starting your own mobile meth lab, this is the $20 Breaking Bad Sunshade available from What On Earth. The product page says it’s an exclusive but I just took a lap around the internet and and saw the exact same shade available a bunch of other places so it might only be the kind of exclusive me and my most recent ex-girlfriend’s relationship turned out to be.
Keep going for a couple more shots of the shade on various vehicles, two of which are real and not just rendered.

This is a very short video of somebody’s fun-loving grandma helping recreate the Pixar intro for what I can only assume is a low-budget gender-swapped remake of Up by, uh, riding her motorized wheelchair over all the letters and into a wall? That’s not really how I remember it. Regardless, I think we can all agree this grandma definitely looks like she knows some sick secret family recipes, and I want them all.

This is a video of physics, math, astronomy and nature enthusiast Toby ‘Tibees’ teaching a lesson about logarithms in the style of Bob Ross. Was it effective? Well, before I watched the video I didn’t know anything about logarithms since I’ve forgotten all about them since high school, but now, well *turning canvas around* now I’ve painted this beautiful landscape. “Are those penises?” You knew what they were! I really am improving.

This is the Banana Hammock made and sold by hammock and hiking gear manufacturer DutchWare. It comes in three varieties, none of which would even come close to being able to support my fruit:
DutchWare’s signature Chameleon Hammock, an 11′ modular sleeper designed to be lightweight and adaptable to myriad environments, thanks to various layers and components you can add in and remove as needed. ($148)
The Half-Zipped Hammock, whose bugnet has 1 side sewn to the hammock body and the other attached to a separating zipper so you can roll up the bugnet on the sewn side and toggle it in place. ($138)
The Netless Hammock. Pictured above, a simple, single layer made of DutchWare Hexon 1.6 fabric. Best for sitting or snoozing in the backyard. ($80)
Did you know actual banana hammocks exist for preventing your bananas from bruising in the kitchen? I did not before my girlfriend told me, but they do (links to Bed Bath & Beyond DESPITE THEM NOT HONORING MY EXPIRED 20% YOUR ENTIRE ORDER COUPON LAST WEEKEND). Still, I’m sure this hammock will be a real laugh riot right up until the point a bear decides it wants to be a monkey for a day.
Thanks to Ashley G, who agrees if you do see a bear in the woods, never mention Goldilocks.

This is a video of creator of things Matthew David timelapse-assembling his 3-D printed Arcus hand-mounted rubber band gatling gun and demonstrating its firepower. Apparently, “Unlike most rubber band guns, the Arcus uses the energy from the rubber bands being shot out to rotate the barrels and continue the barrage.” Clever. If you’re interested in 3-D printing and assembling your own, the model files and tutorial can be found over at Instructables. If you’re not interested in 3-D printing and assembling your own but still want one, you can put these pantyhose over your head and help me raid Matthew’s workshop. “I’m in, hand ’em over.” Well I have to take them off first!

Note: Some colorful commentary from the guy filming.
This is a short video from West Warwick, Rhode Island shot by a man who was “just going about my day when I meet this guy who starts telling me how awesome his 6×6 is, then attempted to make it up a 40ft hill and fails.” Apparently he’d just bought it too. Just keep spinning and smoking those tires, bro. I actually feel bad, but only for the dog in the backseat that thought it was going to the dog park.

This is a shot (technically two side by side) of cosplayer and IMGURian danpio1309’s Darth Bender costume he wore at Dragon Con 2019, complete with requisite Slave Leela and booze in his chest compartment. Nicely done. And what if I told you that Darth Vader and Bender are actually the same character in different universes?! “There’s no way even you believe that, GW.” Well my mind is saying no, but my heart is saying…happy hour? Jesus, mind, it’s not even 2PM. *mind whispering* Haha, TRUE *turns off monitor, grabs backpack* not having any drink specials has never stopped us before.
Thanks to Linby, who agrees despite what you may think, Darth Bender is probably not the father figure you’d want in your life.

This is a worthwhile video of an insanely tall tower (possible of Babel) built out of Jenga-like blocks being destroyed domino maze style. How this could have even possibly been built without accidentally getting knocked over is beyond me, but I suspect it involved making a deal with the devil. And you know how I feel about making deals with the devil. “You tried to sell your soul to him twice.” It’s like he could see right through the fake mustache!
Keep going for the video, as well as the timeless internet classic ‘clumsy reporter knocks down Jenga tower’ because how could I not?

This is a slow motion, macro video shot by nature photographer Lothar Lenz of hornets flying around and drinking from a puddle and just all around looking like computer graphics and not real at all. I mean are we sure those aren’t just fairies in wasp costumes? Plus a few flies make an appearance. Plus the audio is great for fans of those ASRM videos. “ASMR.” Whatever, my point is, watching this video made hornets seem so fascinating that I almost forgot they only have one purpose in life. “Ruining picnics.” Exactly, they said they were going to bring the beer and potato salad and they didn’t. They’re liars, and OW OW OW OW OW OW.
Keep going for the video.

This is a video of Ron of Cape Cod, Massachusetts cruising around in his custom Chevrolet pickup truck that he mounted the body on backwards (in addition to a ton of other modifications I imagine) to give the appearance of the vehicle speeding around in reverse. The details while I see if I can walk backwards all the way to the bathroom without running into anybody or anything, then use a urinal backwards by peeing between my legs. I like to challenge myself:
“This video is of Ron’s customized Chevrolet pick up truck. He modified the truck by installing the body onto the chassis in reverse, so the truck appears to be driving backwards when it is actually driving forwards. It was a 4-year project and was recently completed. The truck appears completely stock from the exterior. Only when looking at the interior can you see the steering wheel, seat, etc. have been reversed. The truck is registered and insured, and has passed the rigorous MA state safety inspection. Front blinkers now serve as brake lights, headlights serve as reserve lights, and taillights have been modified into headlights. Reactions to the truck are hilarious!”
Well, personal challenge failed — my pants are soaked. “There’s always tomorrow, GW.” True! A new morning, a freshly dried and Febreezed pair of work khakis. But how many days will I hose myself before I achieve greatness? “I’m hoping a lot.” You know what I really need? “I’m already your life coach.” And dangit, you’re the best one ever.
Keep going for the video while I beg Ron to let me ride in the bed for the most exciting trip of my life.

This is a video of Youtuber Human Controller (let me press your buttons!) demonstrating the levitating, self-solving Rubik’s Cube he built (previously: the non-levitating self-solving Rubik’s Cube he built last year, which sort of dances around on the table as it solves itself). Pretty cool. I wish I could levitate. I mean why don’t we have hoverboards and hovercars yet? “Physics.” STUPID LAWS. Newton never should have come up with those things.

This is an old video clip from a surreal episode of the soap opera Days Of Our Lives starring actress Arleen Sorkin playing a dream jester, which was the inspiration for the creation of Harley Quinn in Batman: The Animated Series. Some more info about how it all came to be while I pretend I knew Harley Quinn didn’t exist before Batman: The Animated Series. Pfft, everybody knows that.
(Writer Paul) Dini and Sorkin were college friends, and one day, she gave him a VHS tape of her favorite Days moments — including her jester bit. The tape sat idle for years. But in mid 1991, Dini was sick as a dog and popped the tape into his VCR. He was a budding television writer at the time, cranking out freelance scripts for the as-yet-unaired Batman: The Animated Series. He’d been struggling to come up with a female character to use as a one-off in an episode about Batman’s archnemesis, the Joker.
“I thought, Maybe there should be a girl there,” he said. “And I thought, Should the girl be like a tough street thug? Or like a hench-person or something? And then suddenly the idea of someone funny kind of struck me.” When he saw Sorkin in clown makeup, the pieces fell into place, and he came up with a silly little sidekick. He gave her the comic-book-y name of Harley Quinn, sketched out an idea for her look, and brought the sketch to the cartoon’s lead artist, Bruce Timm.
Fascinating. And, FUN FACT: Sorkin was the voice of Harley Quinn when the character debuted in Batman: The Animated Series. “Did you really not know Harley Quinn debuted in the cartoon?” Haha, of course I did, I mean I write Geekologie don’t I? “Not very well.” BONUS FACT.
Keep going for the weird-ass video.
