MOAR creepy robots! DARPA is at it AGAIN with a humanoid robot that can traverse crazy obstacles. [geekologie]
Science fiction is slowly becoming science fact. Those crazy scientists have once again laughed in the face of physics, or whatever, and created a real life tractor beam. [geekosystem]
Once again, someone has come along and ruined our childhood. Severely creepy humanized versions of our favorite cereal mascots. [geekologie]
To make up for that last link, here's a Disney themed Voltron. [geekologie]
When you popped in your NES cartridge, and the game didn't work, what was the first thing you did? You popped it back out and blew on it. Well let's look at this, scientifically, to see if blowing on the cartridge really had any effect. [mentalfloss]
When I get my own house, every single window is going to be one of these. Stained glass video game stuffs! [geekologie]

Who says you can't log into multiple accounts on the same website at once? Let's stick it to the man! [howtogeek]

One of my favorite shows, growing up, was Are You Afraid of the Dark. SNICK was my favorite time-block of the entire week. Forget Rugrats, it was all about AYAOTD and Ren & Stimpy, but that's off topic. Here are 50 of the most terrifying characters from Are You Afraid of the Dark. I apologize if I bring back your nightmares. (no I don't) [buzzfeed]
Most of the time we associate lighting your house and having it go along to music, with Christmas. Well a few people have extended this tradition into halloween. [geekologie]

This week I decided to do something a little different and post some retro commercials. My brain nearly asploded from the massive jolt of being thrown back in time to the good ol' Saturday Mornings. I want some Mr. T. cereal now. I pity the fool who never had some.

Mmmm, I sure hope those pizza-shaped marshmallows taste as good as they look!
I don't know how I'm suppose to follow-up Lisa's post from yesterday with some crappy Friday Round-Up, but here we go.
In relation to the opening picture. CEREAL IS AWESOME! I LOVE CEREAL! One thing that makes me sad about cereal nowadays is the fact that they never put good prizes in them anymore. What the heck?!? I remember when you could buy a box of cereal, and get a full-sized Ninja Turtle as a prize inside! (that previous statement may be slightly exaggerated for emphasis) /mini-rant Cereal boxes have changed their marketing over the years to appeal to a different generation of kids. Here are 15 examples of how cereal boxes have changed over time. [buzzfeed]
We've become very familiar with how some of the biggest websites look. Usually they're clean and stream-lined and can go 0-60 in under 5 seconds. Unless you're on dial-up, in which case, I pity you. Let us take a quick trip back in time to see how websites such as Google and Youtube looked like when they first launched, shall we? [mashable]
This right here will be the only thing I post, related to Single's Awareness Day. I will spare you all from a Nick Rant about how ridiculous I think this day is. So yeah... here are 35 geeky Valentine's Day cards. [gammasquad]
Apparently the Super Bowl Half Time Show was a secret ode to Skyrim
Looking back to last Sunday and the Super Bowl halftime show. SRSLY?? C'mon... SRSLY? When will the people in charge of finding these performers realize that they are making horrible choices. The only person not lip syncing was Cee Lo. Who actually thought that having Madonna do the HT show was a good idea? UGH! /mini rant. There are only a couple halftime shows that I consider to be awesome. SB XXXVII with No Doubt, and SB XXVII with Michael Jackson. SB XXXV with Aerosmith wasn't too bad either. I got to thinking who would be an amazing person to play the halftime show? Strangely enough I then found this article. BRILLIANT! Why Weird Al should play the Super Bowl. [gammasquad]
Back to the Future. One of the best trilogy's to ever grace the silver screen, but what about the stage? There's a possibility of BTTF becoming a stage musical. [blastr]
With the sponsorship of Red Bull, a man attempts to break the sound barrier without any vehicle, only his body, by jumping from a height of 22 miles. It makes all the sense in the world! Let's do a skydive, in a space suit, from just under the ozone layer so as to not burst into flames, and try to break the sound barrier with my body, because, hey, SCREW YOU TERMINAL VELOCITY! [geekologie]
What happens when two of the best video games from completely different time periods collide? A MASS EXPLOSION OF AWESOME! Skyrim, meet Portal 2. Portal 2, Skyrim. That's right folks, not only did Skyrim officially release their mod tools with a bonus Portal 2 mod, BUT hidden within these releases are hints to either a Portal 2 related quest, or a future Portal 2 related quest. Seriously, my brain can't handle this. [geekosystem]
This kid decided to say "Screw you!" to his DNA encoded fear of falling. Then he decides to do parkour from the edge of the roof of a 20 story building, and the arm of a massive crane. My legs were shaking just watching this guy. You know... that feeling you get in your legs when you get too close to the edge of a high place? Yeah, that feeling. [dailywhat]
Here are 25 animals who think they're people. [buzzfeed]
There are very few shows that can literally make me laugh out loud during nearly every episode. Even fewer that make me laugh so hard I can't breathe. A few examples are Home Improvement, Psych, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, and the newest addition, New Girl. New Girl has made me laugh more in just the last 2 episodes, than I have at any show in a long time. As of 2 weeks ago, New Girl had one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen from any show ever in the history of television. If you disagree, your argument will be marked as invalid on the basis of "your sense of humor is broken, and may God have mercy on your soul." Here is the scene I speak of. I warn you now to put down any food or drink you may be consuming at the moment. [youtube]
My my, Batman, you're looking quite dapper this evening.
