Poop should not be a trend. Nevertheless turd toys were everywhere at Toy Fair this year. But it wasn’t all fecal fare. Boogers, farts, and pimples were all the subject of toys appropriate for kids too. As toymakers can’t seem to stop pushing the limits, we set to find the grossest toys we could.
Science isn’t always telescopes and new species. Some research, like the kind that helps forensics experts better understand crime scenes, requires experiments you might find just a little, well, morbid.
The oceans’s deepest point is Challenger Deep, a chasm almost 11000 meters (36,200 feet) below the surface. Few fish species can stand this dark, hostile environment—but scientists have identified one that flourishes.
The new guy at work invites you over to his house. You feel uneasy. Sure, he’s a hard worker, a fast typer, and his intense focus quickly made him an indispensable coworker. But his scarred face seems to betray some violent past. His measured speech seems manufactured. Still, you can’t remember the last new friend you…
Late last week, strange sponge-like clumps began washing ashore in northern France. By the weekend, thousands of the foamy yellow balls were seen along nearly 20 miles of the coastline. Local authorities aren’t sure where the unsightly stuff is coming from, and an investigation is currently underway.
Lots of species do some wild sex stuff. The purple stone crab is no exception: Females have seminal receptacles, a special organ that just holds and stores sperm for later.
A 27-year-old man had been suffering frequent headaches and had been falling over frequently for around three years. But when he had a seizure, he headed to the emergency department. They took an MRI and found THIS.
For all I know, Uber’s food delivery service UberEats is a perfectly fine method of ordering food. But the stomach-turning product that a Canadian couple claims showed up at their door instead of pizza ensures that I’ll be thinking twice about placing an order.
Do you have hobbies? Maybe cycling or carpentry or something low key? Well, this guy has a cooler hobby than you.
In February, Gizmodo reported that many Discord users were facing abuse and were given no clear recourse. Among the issues endemic to the voice- and text-chat platform was the anonymous and unsolicited dissemination of child pornography, a problem which seems to have only gotten worse.
A company producing ready-to-eat chicken is recalling 933,272 pounds of its ostensibly schoolhouse cafeteria-bound product. That’s equal to 26.5 million McNuggets, based on prior Gizmodo calculations. That is so much chicken.
Exactly one year ago today Ryan Collins—one of the hackers involved in the celebrity iCloud nude photo leaks known as “the Fappening”—was charged with violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Today, more alleged intimate photos of actresses are being circulated online, and this time Emma Watson and Amanda…
The internet is a vast place and somewhere, in its vastness, someone is trying to sell “vintage milk.”
Usually, the only thing I can tell from another person’s breath is whether they’re drunk (or the last time they’ve brushed their teeth). But an international team of scientists has created a system that can diagnose disease solely from the chemicals you exhale. A disease fingerprint for your breath. A breathprint of…
We already know that waxing any part of your body is extremely unpleasant. But the point is further driven home when you watch The Slow Mo Guys wax their own legs at 28,000 frames per second through the lens of a Phantom V2511 slo-mo camera. Living with hairy legs doesn’t seem so awful in comparison.
In his most recent upload, Schnooleheletteletto pushes a potted plant to the left—with varying degrees of force—3,000 times over the course of 77 minutes. This is a classic Schnoo troll, one that bears more resemblance to an art project than the sort of disingenuous mockery we usually associate the word with.
Raw fish is an art form, and unlike those novellas that sent me to the ER, it’s meant to be eaten. But listen closely as the video’s terrible foley ruins any appetite you were about to work up.
It’s no secret that tech companies sometimes breed a frathouse office culture. Palantir—the Peter Thiel-cofounded data firm, for example—is no stranger to beer pong, drunken injuries, or merciless pranks. But debauchery must have its limits. No one would be stupid enough to throw a stripper party in their own office,…
McDonald’s food is already pretty unappealing, but as a lifetime of internet consumption has taught me, the moral bottom is limitless. Here are the most repulsive secondary preparations for food ostensibly cooked by a 53-year-old clown.
