tim burton sale

To celebrate Tim Burton’s 58th birthday, ThinkGeek is running a big sale with up to 60% on over 50 “curious” items. Items that include everything from digital wizard hoodies to Flux Capacitor USB car chargers. Oddly, there aren’t any Burton-themed items on this list. No NBX teapots or Edward Scissorhands office supplies. Nothing. They do have an electronic cat tail though, which has a Halloween-y vibe I guess.

Hey, it’s a sale on nerdy stuff—I’ll take it. Make sure to grab your favorites before they sell out.

This past Wednesday, a tornado touched down in Kokomo, Indiana, and promptly flattened a Starbucks. Though damage was extensive, the authorities didn’t report any injuries at the coffee shop. As you’ll see in the video below, that was a bona fide miracle. [click to continue…]


We are, as a species, making great strides in global pizza deployment. Domino’s has already unveiled a robotic pizza delivery tank and a specialized delivery vehicle. The Xavier University in Ohio even has a pizza vending machine to allow their (mutant?) students to get hot ‘n’ fresh pizza quickly. Now Domino’s in New Zealand has announced that they will soon be completing deliveries with flying drones, thanks to a partnership with drone-focused delivery firm Flirtey. They made their announcement by completing a test delivery of a piping hot pizza in Auckland using a drone built with the help of 3D printing. [click to continue…]

For his latest stunt, daredevil Cemre Candar thought it would be a good idea to take a bath in a tub filled with the equivalent of 1,250 bottles of hot sauce. He was wrong.

As you’ll see in the video below, he went so far as to consume hot peppers and dunk his head in the mixture. The result was overwhelming misery. It’s like watching someone get pepper sprayed on Cops—if the entire show was dedicated to pepper spraying one guy. [click to continue…]
