Tastes like chicken


Canned Dragon Meat is a can of delicious, pre-cooked dragon meat containing a stuffed severed dragon’s head. Dragon Meat is currently available to purchase at ThinkGeek (who also sells Canned Unicorn Meat).

Fans of Radiant Farms’ Unicorn Meat are probably looking at this product and thinking, “Wait a minute, ThinkGeek! Isn’t Radiant Farms in Ireland and don’t the nuns believe in nonviolence and wait until the unicorns die of natural causes before processing them?” To that, we say two things: 1) You are a little obsessed with us. and 2) You are right..

But you’re also wrong. You see, Unicorns and Dragons require vastly different resources for their care. Also, if they lived next to each other, the Dragons would just eat the unicorns anyways, and there’d be none left for people to eat. FURTHERMORE, the nuns at Radiant Farms lead a tortured life. Think about it: they start out all-loving and kind and raising Unicorns and letting them die of old age. But year after year of watching such beauty die weighs on their souls. They become evil and cruel and despondent and angry and bitter. It’s then that they’re relocated to the Dragon Rendering plants of Scotland and . . . well, you know the rest.

Michael Jackson Patented Shoes To Perform His Gravity-Defying Lean

In 1993, Michael Jackson, along with Michael L. Bush and Dennis Tompkins, filed for a patent on the “anti-gravity” shoes they invented. These special shoes had a triangular groove in the heels that caught onto a bolt sticking out of the stage floor which allowed Jackson and his dancers to lean forward beyond the center of gravity. The King of Pop used this gravity defying illusion to wow audiences in live performances of the song “Smooth Criminal.”

Golf Cart Hovercraft


If you’re willing to drop the requisite $58,000, you can cruise the fairway (not to mention the rough and water obstacles) in a BW1 of your very own. It comes complete with a 65-hp twin-cylinder Hirth engine and promises enough power to reach 45 mph.
Powered by a 65-hp twin-cylinder Hirth engine, its nine-blade axial-flow ducted fan propels the craft up to 45 mph and 9″ off the ground without harming grass, allowing immediate crossing of a pond or stream to follow-up a cross-water shot. The fan’s streamlined design minimizes noise, speeds up an 18-hole outing, and conveys four passengers beneath a lift-up roof and two golf bags in an open rear compartment. Motorcycle-style handlebars steer the craft, controlling its patented fly-by-wire reverse thrust system, which provides braking and backwards hovering up to 25 mph – the only hovercraft in the world to do so.”

Demonstration of the Powered Jacket MK3 Electromechanical Exoskeleton

In this bizarre video, a Japanese schoolgirl demonstrates an electromechanical exoskeleton as a hideously disfigured host, “Scarface Santaro,” explains the many features of device, the Powered Jacket MK3. According to the manufacturer Sagawa Electronics, the aluminum and carbon fiber exoskeleton is over 7 feet tall, weighs 55 pounds and will be produced in a limited run of five examples. The company has also released a manga series about the Powered Jacket. Given the satirical nature of the video, and the lack of information on the Powered Jacket MK3, it’s unclear if the product is actually destined for production. That being said, Sagawa Electronics claims the exoskeleton will be publicly demonstrated at Wonder Festival 2013 in Chiba City, Japan at the end of July.

ThinkGeek has released a gory collection of Zombie Apocalypse Garden Gnomes into the wild to satisfy the hunger of zombie fans worldwide. You can choose from either a gun wielding survivor gnome or being-eating zombie gnome. They are available to purchase online.

That’s why you prepare for the more logically inevitable with Zombie Apocalypse Garden Gnomes. Birds, rodents, Fluffies, Spots, and the occasional raccoon can still spread the infectious zombie disease, but with armed garden gnomes, your yard will be a safe zone.

ChinaSMACK is reporting that a user on China’s microblogging site Sina Weibo has invented “hairy stockings” as a way for young girls to fend off perverts. It’s hard to tell if these are real or imagined but given that some people in China have been putting dogs in pantyhose, these might just be the former.

Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out.
