I'm much more comfortable with this. In fact, I'm a pro.
Pause your game, put down that comic book, stop thinking about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas episode for 2 seconds, and gather around. It's time for everybody's favorite part of the week, Nick's Friday Round-Up!
We start off with a THIS is THAT of the day. What do you get when you cross Star Wars with Dr. Seuss? How about a very entertaining Darth Vader as the Grinch mash-up. [blastr]
This is one talented dog. He loves his snack foods. Dunkers more specifically. Although there's something a little suspicious about how he's eating them. [geekosystem]
I finally got to see the Muppet movie this past Wednesday, and I loved it. It was one of the best nostalgia brain explosions I've had in quite a long time. It'll make you sing. It'll make you laugh. It'll make you
cry get all choked up. <_< But what you may not have known is while the Muppets were apart, a few of them tried out for other TV and movie roles. [buzzfeed]
This isn't the nerdiest of news stories, but it's about monkeys throwing poo. MONKEYS. THROWING. POO. SRSLY, how could I not add this to the Round-Up? [geeokosystem]
This right here is another Skyrim related post. Yep, sure is. While playing the game. (that you just lost) I'm sure you've noticed there are many ways you can quickly come to your demise. This video will show you 100 ways to die. A few of my personal favorites, are numbers 7, 8, 10, 18, 22, 49, 54, 72, and 96. Enjoy. [uproxx]
So who doesn't enjoy a good opera, AMIRITE? Anybody.... anybody... yeah. Ok, well let's make an exception for 2 minutes 49 seconds, and watch this Mario opera. Trust me, you won't be disappoint. [geekosystem]
As we go about our day, we rely on many gadgets to help us get through it. We put a lot of our trust in them.
Probably definitely too much. Especially in things we rely on the most for our safety i.e. cars. Here are 8 gadgets that lie to you every day. [cracked]
To finish it off, and in honor of the beginning of December and winter approaching, I'll leave you with a winter escape game. Allowing you to take that much needed break from Skyrim. Yep... I mentioned it again. [howtogeek]

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.

He should had done a barrel roll. =(
It's 11/11/11, and you know what that means? NOTHING! Except a lot of 1's, so it makes it easy to remember today's date. Also, Veteran's Day, so a big thank you goes out to all the veteran's who helped to keep this country safe and free.
Video games are awesome, but then you hear that one of them is educational, and you think to yourself, "Wow, that game must be super lame." Right? WRONG! Here are 6 educational games that were awesome! [dorkly]
Cute little animals. We love and adore them. We even allow them to become our best friends, but underneath that cute, loyal exterior is a troll. A cute, fuzzy, conniving troll. [geekosystem]
We all love Muppets, and probably grew up watching Sesame Street. I know I did. What you probably didn't know was they used to have a black stereotype Muppet that quickly got the axe. Here's are 10 fun facts that you didn't know about Sesame Street. [buzzfeed]
Nothing is faster than the speed of light, at least that's what most of us believe. Well, in actuality, you can break the speed of light in your own backyard. Curious, are you? [howtogeek]
Technology has come a loooooong way in the past 20 years, and people's skills in using this technology has evolved with it. I thought Lisa's Photoshop skills were pretty top-notch, but this guy blows her out of the water. A guy uses Photoshop to create a drawing that looks like a photograph of a real girl. [youtube]
Keeping in theme with the Photoshop skills, here's some fantastic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan art. Some are amazing, some are super cute, and some will give you nightmares for weeks. [buzzfeed]
You know as a kid you always wanted some sort of secret passageway or hidden room in your house. Ok, who am I kidding, I STILL want a secret passageway in my house, and there are people out there who made that desire into a reality. [mentalfloss]
I'll leave you with another fun game to waste time playing, that is if Solip Skier hasn't occupied enough of your time this week. Zombie Trailer Park, is quite simple. Build up your trailer park and keep the zombies at bay long enough to overpower them and destroy their base. Stage 1: Easy and fun. Stage 2: inb4uragequit. Stage 3: I'm still rage quitting from stage 2, but I'll be back. [addictinggames]
