Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Edition

Picture presented without comment.

It's Friday! And you know what that means? It means you have 6 more days before you can stuff your face while watching football, after enjoying a mega-parade on TV. There's a rumbly in my tumbly now.

Ya know how when you're on the road, everyone going faster than you is an idiot, and everyone going slower than you is a moron? Have you ever wanted to let them know that, but all you had was a car horn. Well want no more! Learn how to turn your rear windshield into an LED display. [geekosystem]

You're driving along rainbow road and you just barely miss that extremely dangerous banana peel that somebody nonchalantly flung into the street. As you take half a second to breath after that near miss, you get slammed in back by a red turtle shell, causing you to wildly spin out of control. If this is your dream, then it's your lucky day, cuz it's dream come true! The guys at West Coast Customs built, not one, but TWO karts from Mario Kart. [geekologie]

Keeping in theme with Mario. PETA is on the prowl again. Apparently the new Super Mario 3D Land game has caught PETA's interest in the Mario franchise. Their complaint: Mario promotes that it's okay to wear fur. (excuse me while I place a -_- face here.) I'll post a few links here, just so you can see how ridiculous this is. [mashable] [geekologie] BONUS VIDEO: Black Nerd Comedy [youtube]

Video games now-a-days just love to offer you some extra DLC a little while after the game is released. In my opinion, this is actually a great thing, offering you more game, for a moderate price, usually. And then there are the games, that are just trying to squeeze every little bit of money they can out of you, on the basis that 'people are stupid'. You really want me to pay money to be able to ride a train in a train simulator game, I already bought? SRSLY? Here are the 10 Most Insulting Things Video Games Charged Money For. [cracked]

Tesla coils on your head and Mortal Kombat, what could go wrong? NOTHING, ONLY AWESOME CAN COME FROM THIS! [geekosystem]

Back in the day, doing 'the robot' was cool. As time went on, well.... not so much. However, a couple guys who call themselves the Robotboys, have brought it back, and more awesomazing  than ever. God bless you, dubstep. It gets good at 1:55, it gets awesomazing at 2:22. [buzzfeed]

ZOMG ADORBZ OF THE DAY: A cute little pug is dressed up as a Wampa, Wampug. [geekologie]

For those of you who just don't have any good games to play, because I know this month has been super lacking on awesome video game releases, and you seriously have not-a-game to keep you occupied, I present to you, Potty Racers! Have you ever wanted to fly inside a porta-potty, earning money for upgrades, tricks, and scrap to turn your porta-potty into an airplane? Do you love the fresh smell of steaming hot dung? Then head out on this poo-centric adventure. [addictinggames]
