VelociRoACH Hits the Ground Running… and Raid Won’t Stop It

TARDIS VW Beetle: Fahrverwhügen
This TARDIS VW Beetle is all timey-whimey and bigger on the… outside. Which is pretty normal. I remember when the 3rd Doctor had a car that he used to drive around in and fight monsters with.

LEGO Taxidermied Insect Collection is All About Bugs and Bricks
Some interests are pretty morbid. For instance, I’ve always wondered just what kind of person would want to become a coroner or an undertaker. It’s just weird to me. The same thing applies to people who collect bugs and display them.

The Ethiopian Caterpillar – Robot Bug of the 19th Century
I’m always mesmerized by the intricate craftsmanship found in antique automatons. I think it’s something about the fact that people could build robotics without any electrical or electronic components that is truly amazing. One of the more incredible automatons to pop onto my radar screen of late is this mechanical caterpillar that dates back to 1820.

Lighting Fixture Puts Fireflies on Your Ceiling

Lighting Fixture Puts Fireflies on Your Ceiling
When I was growing up, one of my favorite memories was that of tiny fireflies buzzing about my backyard in the Summer evenings. But for many years of my adult life, I ended up living places where there were none of the luminescent insects.

Pray That the Mantis Chair Doesn’t Prey on You

Pray That the Mantis Chair Doesn’t Prey on You
It’s no secret that I have this insane and inane fear of insects. Cockroaches, grasshoppers, crickets, preying mantis, you name it, and I’ll scream when I see it. This is all to the annoyance of my dad, who just swats at it or sweeps it out of the way when he sees one. 

Glitchr Turns Website Bugs into Art

Glitchr Turns Website Bugs into Art
To be honest, I no longer use Facebook enough to see any bugs. I basically check in and check out, within 10 or 15 minutes or so each time and never leave an open tab. That being said, just like any website, Facebook has got some bugs.

But the Internet is draining my Anti-Skyrim field, as it’s riddled with all sorts of cool stuff about the game, like this funny glitch that lets your follower wield a powerful giant’s club.

HexBug Larva Robots Ready to Squirm into Your Life
You may or may not know this about me, but I really dislike bugs. Not dragonflies or ladybugs, mind you, just the really creepy crawly type. And while it’s usually the ones with thousands of legs that really freak me out, larvae are about the next worst thing.
