Parenthood can be looked at two ways: you either adore your kids and your life changes for the better… or, it doesn’t. One anonymous dad named ‘UKJoel25′ might be one of the dads out there who doesn’t exactly embrace fatherhood.

We have a weakness for wind-up toys, and what’s the greatest about these is that they can be completely random and daft. Here’s some of the best ones we raked up from eBay.
Ebay is a strange, strange place — it essentially hosts a bunch of stuff that people have and want to get rid of. Recently I’ve become quite fascinated with looking at its listings of space toys from before 1970. These are future-themed toys from the past, so it makes so much sense to actually see […]
