Although I usually have a rule that I never, ever play games based on movies under any circumstances, Inception for the NES seems like it would be a rather interesting experience. One element that the NES lacked, like most ... Read More »

The Newly Patented Self-Burying Screw-In Coffin

When I die I want to be locked inside of a hermetically sealed screw-shaped chamber and screwed into the ground, rather than buried, with little, if any assistance from a grave digger.

The Good, The Bad and the Dark Side: R2-D2 Stormtrooper Helmet

“Hey, Artoo, you look a little different today.” “Who? Me?” “Yeah… you. Did you get a haircut?” “Uhhh… no, no, I’m on a diet. I’ve lost a few pounds.” “Ahh, that explains it. Wait… could you speak English yesterday?” “Ummm… yes?” “Oh, alright then. Carry on.” If Darth Vader ever wants to send a mole over to infiltrate the geniuses ... Read More »

Ambidextrous Street Artist Shows Off His Skills

I can’t even come close to what he’s drawing, even using one hand and taking as much time as I need. Maybe if I traced it. Maybe. But even then, I’d find a way to mess it up. That’s no exaggeration.
