  1. Batman, This Is The Tumbler Golf Cart You Deserve

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    If that S.H.I.E.L.D. SUV wasn't quite up your alley, perhaps we can interest you in this one-of-a-kind Batman tumbler golf cart? RaysHollywood is currently selling this item on ebay for a "buy it now" price of $17,500 but you can make an offer if you're feeling bold. The tumbler golf cart once drove on the Warner Bros. set and parked next to the real tumbler, if that makes it more appealing.

    Hoo boy.

    People choose to commemorate important events in different ways. Here at Geekosystem, we thought to honor the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech by wondering how far the original broadcast has since travelled into space. Over at the official Twitter for the Golf Channel, they had other... ideas. About golf.

  3. Watch a Robot Trash Talk Golfer Rory McIlroy While Hitting Balls at Washing Machines

    Is this what golf is always like? Because if it is then it turns out I am an avid golf enthusiast.

    I've been to golf courses and country clubs a few times for various reasons, but I've never actually been out on a golf course, so I have to ask -- do they all have sassy robots that hit balls at washing machines? If so, then I take back anything I've ever said about golf being boring. In this video for the European Tour, golfer Rory McIlroy faces off against a mouthy robot as they compete to be the first to hit a series of washing machines with golf balls. It's everything golf should be.

  5. This Somewhat Horrifying Drone Has a Surprisingly Mundane Purpose

    Robot drones have a wide array of applications that range from spying on things to killing them. They're usually pretty unassuming to look at, but sometimes they're the stuff of nightmares, like the one pictured above. Proving that you can't judge a book by it's cover, this terrifying drone actually has one of the most mundane jobs we've seen. It isn't used for surveillance or killing, it's used for...

    Today is a Good Day For Someone Else To Die

    It was just another day on the course for Swedish golfer Daniela Holmqvist. Until she was bit by a Black Widow spider, that is. Did the rookie run off to seek medical attention? No, she used a golf tee to cut into her skin and remove the venom. Daniela Holmqvist, you are a superhero.

  7. Falling Shark Causes “Rain of Terror” on California Golf Course (Get it!?)

    If you're planning to do any outdoor activities this weekend, make sure you keep an eye out for signs of hurricanes and fish falling out of the sky. Yes, that's right folks: There are sharks falling of the sky, and there's nothing we can do about it... Ok, so it was actually just one shark: It fell onto on a golf course in California. It may only be one shark right now, but this could be the first sign of a falling fish epidemic the likes of which we've never seen!

  9. Golfer Makes Hole-In-One, Wins Body Weight In Ham

    During the Madrid Masters, Scottish golfer Elliot Saltman managed to get a hole-in-one on the third hole at the El Encin Golf Hotel. For his accomplishment, he recieved much praise and many golf claps. Also, his body weight in ham. Each hole had its own prize for a hole-in-one, some of which included a car or a watch. Saltman had the great (mis)fortune of landing it on the third and winning ham.

    Saltman weighs in an at a respectable 235 pounds according to the European Tour media guide. Ironically enough, he says that he has recently been trying to lose weight and almost regrets the progress he's made so far. The ham, heavily salted and cured, is a delicacy in Spain and is oddly appropriate considering Saltman's name. His biggest concern at the moment seems to be how exactly he will get the ham home. "I don't think they'll let me take that on the plane," he said in an interview. Despite the great shot, Saltman isn't doing particularly well overall at 3 over and 14 strokes behind the leader. He has his body weight in ham though, and if that isn't winning, I don't know what is.
