Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Why is World of Warcraft the biggest MMO in the world? You'd think people would get bored of it and quit, but that doesn't seem to happen. Here are 6 reasons why it's impossible to quit WoW. [cracked]

Valve received a very special gift from the WETA workshop. Nothing too crazy or anything, just a fully functioning Portal turret, that's all. [geekosystem]

What do you do when you wake up in the morning (now the Saved by the Bell theme song is stuck in your head) and you want to know the weather for the day, but can't bring yourself to get in the internet before you've had your coffee and toast? You purchase a toaster that burns the days weather into the side of the toast for you, that's what. [geekologie]

For those of us who've always wanted to shoot that stupid dog, from Duck Hunt, in the face for laughing at us, well now you can, with this NES zapper that's been modded into a real burning laser. [geekosystem]

Now let's jump from an amazing weapon to the 15 worst weapons in videogame history. [dorkly]

We move on to the most annoying weapon ever created in any videogame ever, on any planet, in any dimension. The Hyperion Energizing Bane from Borderlands 2. It may be one of the most powerful guns ever, but can you handle the troll factor that it throws at you for using it? [geekosystem]

There have been many people who have said that Borderlands 2 is way too difficult. Well hey, guess what. URDOINITWRONG! [gammasquad]

Here are some amazing pics of Link visiting the Lon Lon Ranch as imagined in real life. Also, click through to visit The Zelda Project. [geekologie]

For all you Trekkies out there who also love your cookies, your 2 favorite things have been merged. Star Trek cookie cutters. [geekologie]

This is a huge blow for bacon lovers all over the world. There is literally a worldwide bacon shortage! I can just hear all your tears flooding your bedrooms right now. [geekologie]

You know what I haven't posted in a while? an OMG ADORBZ OF THE DAY! Well, I shall fix this right now. A baby that stops crying every time it hears the Star Wars theme song. [blastr]

For those of you who are still confused about the Star Wars and what's really going on, here's a minimalistic, informative infograph for you. [murera]

For all you fancy schmancy pants Star Wars fans, here are some luxury-style, limited edition Star Wars watches you can purchase with all your fancy schmancy pants money. [geekologie]

As a tribute to science fiction stuffs, here are 32 fan-built sci-fi LEGO creations. [dvice]

In some, "Really... are you seriously, freakin' kidding me?" news, "cowabunga" is being replaced with "booyakasha". Guys, you can't make this stuff up. [blastr]

And finally, here's an SUV driving down the road that gets struck by a bolt of lightning. "What did you say?" "A bolt of lightning. Unfortunately, you never know when or where it's ever gonna strike." Seriously though, what are the chances that a guy is going to be recording himself driving down the road and happens to capture a bolt of lightning hitting a vehicle. The odds are ridiculous.

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition


Yesterday was a day of giving thanks, and as American's, consuming gratuitous amounts of turkey and other foods, is how we celebrate. God bless America! The day after thanksgiving is just as sweet, with all the leftovers. You gotta love a good hearty turkey sammich. MmmMmm good. So this week's Round-Up is chock full of Thanksgiving leftovers.

As you're sitting there, enjoying your turkey sammich, sitting in your living room chair, why don't you entertain yourself with 14 of the best Thanksgiving episodes from "Sci-Fi" TV shows. The Buffy episode happens to be my personal favorite. [blastr]

I've never actually had a turducken before. It's just a bit too much to handle, but I would be more than happy to have a Cherpumple. A cherry pie, pumpkin pie and apple pie baked inside a 3 layer cake. *droooool* [buzzfeed]

Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without the turkey, and don't even give me your crap about a tofurky. GET THE HECK OUT OF HERE WITH THAT TOFURKY! Ok, sorry... (not really) Now wouldn't it be even greater with that sense of accomplishment knowing that you hunted your own Thanksgiving turkey? Yes it would. So go ahead and learn how to be a turkey hunter. (lulz will happen) [geekosystem]

Everyone loves and appreciates a good infograph. You can find one for anything, including Thanksgiving. [buzzfeed]

Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without watching the Cowboy's football game. This year's game was 82% better than usual, simply because of the super hot Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader that got tackled by one of the players. [youtube]

I've mentioned leftover Thanksgiving sammiches a few different times during this post. I now present to you 24 of the best looking Thanksgiving leftover sammiches you've ever seen. [buzzfeed]

I'll leave you with something non-Thanksgiving related. If you're anything like me, you've been playing Skyrim like crazy, and still not yet even put a dent in the game, but if you've powered though and actually run out of map to explore, why not travel through Morrowind and Oblivion as well... Inside the Skyrim game. [geekosystem]

Three words. BACON. COVERED. TURKEY.

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Random, “I DO WHAT I WANT” Edition

Watching The Lion King in 3D is cool, and seeing it in HD on blu-ray is neat, but there's nothing better than seeing it IRL.

Hello drones, Nick here. This week, Stuart didn't have time, or something, to put together a Friday Round-Up, so I took it upon myself to compile a short list of semi-compelling and sort-of interesting stories to end out your work week.

- Do you love bacon? Do dream about it? Are these dreams the kind of dreams you wouldn't dare tell anyone else? If so, then go get some help. If this isn't you, but you still really enjoy bacon without the awkward, disturbing dreams, then check out Van Gogh's Starry Night made completely out of bacon. [Instructables.com]

- Growing up, I was a big fan of Where's Waldo. I still own a book or two, although I'm not quite sure where they are, but I digress. Here's 12 cool facts that you may, or may not know about Waldo. [Buzzfeed.com]

- Star Wars geeks, go scrounge up your spare change, and by "spare change" I mean "$150.00". If you've ever wanted to wear a Wampa on your feet, then I point you to my advice earlier to the bacon dreamers. If you want to wear Wampa fur on your feet, then I guess that's not as bad, so go have a look at these shoes. [Geekosystem.com]

- HECK YEAH SCIENCE OF THE DAY! Everyday it amazes me the advances we  make in science. A girl who was born deaf, regains her hearing through a hearing implant. CAUTION: Watching this video may cause tear duct leakage. [Thedailywh.at]

- Have you ever been eating a cookie and wished you could eat cereal inside it? No? Oh... well maybe it's just me. Well what about ice cream, or berries or PEANUT BUTTER TOPPED WITH NUTELLA? OMG... BRB! Here is a simple idea, but seriously life-changing. Make your own cookie bowls. [Celebrationathomeblog.com]

-Last, but not least, I leave you with another picture. This is for Lisa, because I know how much she loves her some comic sans font. [SRS FONT IS SRS]
