    Baby Poop Might Help Make Sausage Healthier, Tastier, and Way Grosser

    Baby poop is being used by scientists to improve sausage. Thankfully, it's not an ingredient, but they did study a bunch of dirty diapers to sample and culture bacteria, and that bacteria could make sausages not only tastier, but healthier. You know, if you can get over the idea of poop-sausage and actually eat it.

    Smart Diapers Track a Baby’s Health with Smartphones, Because Why Shouldn’t Diapers Make Themselves Useful?

    Smart diapers bring obsessing over infant health to a new level by letting you check up on your baby's vital stats with your smart phone. The diaper has a small patch that tests urine and gives you all kinds of pee information to overreact about and bother doctors with. Oh, and it can detect early signs of infection and diabetes, so that's good.

    KinderStuff Launches Secondhand Kids’ Fashion Company Online, Sounds Vaguely Familiar

    If you're a regular reader of the site, you know I'm a new father. That's probably why KinderStuff caught my attention. My daughter is less than a month old, and she's already outgrown a lot of the Batman outfits she has. Don't worry, she has more, but it raises the issue that children quickly outgrow clothing, so parents are constantly having to buy new clothes. New online clothing company KinderStuff offers premium, organic clothing, and when your kid outgrows it, you can send it back for a discount on new clothes. The site launched in the U.S. today. Letting kids wear high-end garments for a limited time? Where have I heard that before...

    Incestuous, Meth Smoking Washington Couple Arrested on Charges of Being Worst People Ever

    A woman and her boyfriend -- who is also her half-brother, for those of you working to fill out your "Degenerates on the Internet" bingo card at home -- were arrested in Lake Stevens, Washington earlier this month for smoking meth in their car. The official charge, though, was child endangerment, because of course the woman's 11 month old baby was  with them in the frigid, out of gas, meth smoke-filled car. As if you even needed to ask.

    Hide Yo Kids, Hide Yo Wife, Fake Eagles Snatchin’ Everybody Out Here

    Death from the skies! There's a video on YouTube right now that allegedly shows a golden eagle swooping down in a park and attempting to carry off a small child. Golden eagles are one of the largest birds in North America, but could one actually lift a baby? Nope. They can't. There were few things about this video that made us suspicious, and with good reason. It turns out it was fake after all.

    Baby Fighting A Dragon Ends Better For The Baby Than You Might Expect

    The above video aside, we here at Geekosystem want to register our strong disapproval of teaching dangerous martial arts techniques to small children. Ignoring for a moment the obvious dangers inherent in a child being able to beat up its own teachers, babysitters, and parents, the training necessary to master these skills is more than any small child should have to bear. Unless dragons are a problem in your neighborhood. At that point it's just responsible parenting.

    This Assault Rifle Is Made Of Baby, And We Want To Know Who’s Responsible

    It looks like someone tore a baby apart and wrapped it around an assault rifle. The blood bag could mean it is still alive. The leash could mean it tried to escape. We have so many questions, but no one seems to have the answers.

    Mom-of-the-Year Trades Infant for a Truck

    I've been meaning to see how much I could get for the pickup that's been sitting in my garage for the last few months. Well, if I drive over to Kentucky, I could get myself a baby. A couple from the Bluegrass State swapped their 1999 Dodge Dakota for a 6-month-old child. It turns out that the Kentucky authorities don't take too kindly to that sort of thing.

    You Wanted to See A Horrifying Robotic Infant, Right?

    No, this isn't the terrifying spawn of C3PO and the thing from Virus. According to the YouTube information, this delightful robot baby was constructed for an soap opera by British animatronics expert Chris Clarke, so I suppose we can blame him for bringing this abomination into the world. Perhaps I shouldn't be so harsh. Besides its metal wire fingers, stubby legs that abruptly end mid-calf, and horrifying face-hole covered only by an array of moving panels, what's not love? If you think it looks creepy now, just wait until you see it start moving. See the video, after the break.

    To This Baby, a Magazine is a Broken iPad. This Holds Significance

    Submitted for your approval, a child introduced to the iPad at a young age, exposed to its various delights of  light and sound, unable to comprehend a magazine. The video shows that this 1-year-old baby, after being introduced to an iPad, has become trained by its (admittedly elegant) user interface to repeatedly try and use a glossy magazine the same way. Needless to say, it doesn't work.

    Of course, on one level this is cute, but on another, it could speak to the incredibly powerful way the technological innovations of the past 15 years or so will affect the next generation of human beings. We have generally thought of technology as being something hard to grasp and hard to teach, but this video seems to illustrate that that has fundamentally changed. Forever. Of course, as terrifyingly poetic as that explanation may seem, there's way more to it than that.

    Justin Bieber x Slipknot. ‘Nuff Said.

    While I will confess that I am neither an aficionado of Justin Bieber nor of Slipknot, this is the most wizardly mash-up I have heard in quite a while. Artist Isosine, a.k.a. Steven Nguyen, explains the magic:

    [The songs were mixed in] Ableton Live. The vocal recording is from Rock Band when you don't play anything, it gets most of the other tracks out of the way, but there are still some residual stuff like drums. ... The screams were left unaffected since I didn't hear any specific pitch to them. Plus tuning the screams made them sound wonky. However, the chorus is +5 steps up. It has doubled effect because there are actually three vocal tracks playing during the chorus. +5 (the one you hear the most), -7 (give it some beef and thicken the track), -7 (another one with a slightly different formant to make sound a little more natural).
