This clip features the real life story of the famous plumber’s addiction to those little magic mushrooms… The video, by P0YKPAC is a sad, sad tale, but the (mildly NSFW) clip is really quite funny. Mario’s struggles with the “stuff” lead him down a path of self destruction and it all ends with tragic consequences.

It’s Super Mario in Toast Form

It’s Super Mario in Toast Form
I’ve been dying for an excuse to feature one of my favorite artists, Dan Goodsell on my blog, but his whimsical paintings never seemed quite appropriate for Technabob. Today, Dan gave me just enough of an excuse by when he jumped into the video gaming world.

Can’t Afford Bluetooth? Try This Cell Phone Accessory.

Can’t Afford Bluetooth? Try This Cell Phone Accessory.
Personally, I can’t stand those people who walk down the street with their Bluetooth headsets on, talking into space. But if you’re one of those people who just can’t possibly be bothered by holding your cell phone in your hand, have I got an invention for you. Consisting of a pair of giant rubber bands (in case you break one,) the kit lets you fasten your mobile phone to the side of your head, thus freeing your hands for whatever important tasks you need them for.
