Yet another lovely albeit slightly nerdy addition to any home or office which also happens to be great blend of form and function all at once. These pixelated hanger will set you back just twenty bucks each.

The Gettysburg Address delivered as a Powerpoint presentation.The Gettysburg Address delivered as a Powerpoint presentation.

Good morning. Just a second while I get this connection to work. Do I press this button here? Function-F7? No, that's not right. Hmmm. Maybe I'll have to reboot. Hold on a minute. Um, my name is Abe Lincoln and I'm your president.

Eleven of the most painfully obvious newspaper articles ever.Eleven of the most painfully obvious newspaper articles ever.

Seriously, you'd think that most of these headlines would have come right out of The Onion - but no, sadly these are all real headlines. My personal favorite: 'Report on reports sees too many reports'. That's some good reporting.

A handy tutorial on how to draw perspective in your next doodle or art project.A handy tutorial on how to draw perspective in your next doodle or art project.

The main thing to remember is that as things get farther away, they look smaller, but the angle at which they fade is what will give your drawings a realistic, three-dimensional effect.

Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.

Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the television shows you may have used to watch. The combination of DuckTales and Rescue Rangers still holds a special place in my heart (although not mentioned on said list). Hey, remember The Jets?

Eleven of the most spot-on song parodies from South Park.Eleven of the most spot-on song parodies from South Park.

'South Park' hit Kanye West hard in their 'Fish Sticks' episode earlier this year... it wasn't quite as hard as they hit Mel Gibson, Jennifer Lopez, Phil Collins or Paris Hilton in the past, but it was close. And this all came before the Kanye/Taylor Swift incident.

World record for Pac-Man recently broken by Ohio resident.World record for Pac-Man recently broken by Ohio resident.

To nail a perfect Pac-Man score, a player must 'eat every dot, bonus prize and blue ghost across all 256 levels.' At that point, a glitch in the original game code results in an unplayable stage, effectively ending the experience with a score of 3,333,360.
