Video: It's always fun to see things that aren't supposed to be real, come alive. Breathing life into inanimate objects and giving them their own personality spins your brain sideways. This video by turns a woman's nails into their own little monsters.

Have you ever seen the toenails of your grandfather and thought he might be a troll? Those yellow, misshapen and brittle nails tend to make small children cringe, and in response, he wears knee high black socks with sandals.

If, for whatever reason, you've decided that simply biting your fingernails isn't the best way to keep them short, you'll want to invest in a nice trimmer. But not some giant monstrosity that requires a purse or a murse to keep it on hand. Go for Kershaw's ultra-thin nail clippers that fold down to an easily pocketable 4mm package.

There is iron in cereal. That's good! But it looks pretty gross. Here's how to find it: soak a cup of cereal in a Ziploc bag with water, mix it up and then rub a magnet over the bag. You'll see the metallic iron trailing the magnet. You eat that!

In space, even the most mundane routines become elaborate tasks. Like cutting your nails: if you're not careful, your fellow astronauts will have face full of clippings. Gross. Fortunately, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has taken time out to explain how the folks on the ISS cope.

Trimming your nails sucks, and it's not your digits' fault. Technology is to blame. Nail clippers. Blech. With a one size fits all design, it's impossible to get your whole nail in one clip. And hunching over the bathroom bin doesn't make us any more likely to keep the floor clean of our cast offs.

Nail trimmers are pretty lame and usually nothing to be excited about. Usually! But the Khlip is pretty cool! The redesigned clipper applies pressure above its single blade, claiming a smoother cut and sparing you gross nail trimmings flying around.

I never liked nails painted with any motif - I personally use plain hot-rod, metallic red nail polish for mine - but I have to admit that these tech icons, from iPhone apps to Mario to Domo-Kun, look preeeeetty nice.

There are plenty of odd USB drives out there—especially ones shaped like food. But those drives are meant for happy-go-lucky types that may or may not have an eating disorder. But what about hotheads that have a love/hate relationship with their computer? Plankon's 1GB "Nailed" USB drive fills that void with a design that almost begs short-tempered nerds to smash an unruly laptop with a hammer. Available for the steep price of US$45.

If Home Improvement was still on the air, this is exactly the kind of modified tool Tim Allen would have used to create an entire episode's worth of grunting wombat noises. He may even have shot that sidekick of his, Al, for minutes worth of canned laughter.

Tool and machine gun fan David Wiggins created the mod in response to another machine-nail-gun he saw online. He didn't think twice about it after having just picked up a new M16 (as you do).

Apparently is can drive a nail through a 2 x 4 at 200 yards. Not that you'd want to try that, of course. In any case, I highly doubt that DeWalt will be looking to bring this new line to market - at least not in Australia. Maybe in gun-loving America, but not down under.

What the hell is wrong with people? Seriously. Anyone who has seen the endless stream of Jackass copycat videos floating out there knows all to well that there are some frighteningly stupid people out there. As if you needed yet another example, check out this vid featuring a bunch of tools testing out their homemade nail gun bazooka. Spoiler: It doesn't end well.

Where others use watercolors, one man uses metal. This artist (if you know his name, hit the comments) re-creates masterpieces using nothing but nails. The process appears to utilize a computer grid to map dots onto plyboard—we're betting a projector and pencil is used—after which the artist nails thousands of metallic dots onto his "canvas." He's the Monet of metal, in a sense, with yet another trick up his sleeve—toothpicks. galleryPost('NailArt', 4, 'NailArt');
