    Welp, we're boned.

    Sure, we all made jokes when the Pacu, an exotic fish species with an unusual (and apparently false) reputation for biting at people's junk, was found in a Denmark River recently.

  10. I Wanna Go Fast: New Jersey Gas Stations Accidentally Pump Cars Full of Jet Fuel

    Gas stations don't tend to feature prominently here on Geekosystem, but when they do the stories tend to be pretty epic. Over this past weekend, gas stations suddenly got even more interesting when three stations in New Jersey were mistakenly refilled with jet fuel, and they then passed said jet fuel on to the cars that refueled at them.
