  • From the Department of WTF comes the do-it-yourself instructions for a handgun-shaped Bluetooth handset, the iGiveUp.

  • Everyone knows about the leaning tower of Pisa. Apparently, it's a tourist thing to take your picture either pushing it or holding it up. But what if you take random pictures of people posing for these shots? You get some silly pictures.

  • The third installment of the animated adventures of Simon and his cat: TV Dinner.

  • The Japanese have a novel method of building demolition. Instead of imploding them (while more spectacular), they produce less pollution and recycle more materials by using huge jacks. Disassemble a floor, then lower the building, and repeat. It's called daruma-otoshi.

  • Crazy pizza combinations around the world.

  • When it comes to dirty cars, the most expressive most of us get is writing "wash me" in the dust. But not Scott Wade. He's the dirty car artist.

  • These days everyone looks at real estate on the web. So it's important to take good pictures of a property. Or so you'd think. Check out some questionable pictures at It's Lovely! I'll take it!

  • High heel shoes for babies? Yes.
