Spread the Haterade: Hater App Lets You Share Stuff that You Hate
There’s a long-standing request for ‘Dislike’ buttons to be added on Facebook, but I’m pretty sure that won’t ever happen unless some hackers managed to hack into the social network itself. And it’s understandable. Facebook’s stock already isn’t doing really well at this point, so just imagine the dive it would take if a ‘Dislike’ feature was somehow introduced.

Optimus Prime Nutcracker Will Transform Your Nuts into Rubble
Christmas may be more than 9 months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing early, right? Actually, who says nutcrackers are only good for the holidays anyhow – especially when they look like this?

Neurotic Armageddon Indicator: Alarming Clock

Neurotic Armageddon Indicator: Alarming Clock
It may not look like much, but this digital clock is actually the most depressing and horrifying timepiece I have seen. Made by artist Tom Schofield, the clock doesn’t tell the time.
