Nick’s Friday Round-Up

What happens when you give somebody 150,000 LEGOs? A HUGE MESS! Oh wait... that's if you give them to me. If you give them to some much more creative people, you get a recreation of the Battle of Helm's Deep. [gammasquad]

Ok, what if you give someone a bunch of multi-colored twistie-ties? Once again, if you give them to me, all you're gonna get is a bunch of spiral shapes because I wrapped them around my fingers. If you give them to someone else, you get twistie-tie sculptures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. [geekologie]

As of about a week ago I FINALLY beat Dead Space. Yes, the very first one. So I find this fitting that someone built an IRL burning Dead Space plasma cutter. [geekologie]

Hooray for Microsoft making a smart move! The next-gen XBOX will NOT require you to always be connected in order to play singleplayer games. [geekosystem]

MORE HOMEMADE STUFF!! Someone made an 80,000 volt Thor's Hammer. [geekologie]

If you've never played Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem on Gamecube, I HIGHLY recommend you go play it. With that said, there's plans to make a "sequal"/"successor" game for it. A lot of people don't want this to happen for one reason or another, but I, for one, welcome it. [gamesradar]

For those who were looking forward to Jurassic Park 4, especially since the 3D release of the original, then I'm sorry to let the wind out of your sails, but Jurassic Park 4 has been put on hold. [gammasquad]

Time travel seems like it would be an amazing experience if it were possible. Just look at all the adventures from Doctor Who and Marty McFly. Most people don't consider the annoyances and frustrations that time travel might actually cause. [blastr]

In really stupid news, Disney has hired EA to create Star Wars games. Seriously, Disney? Seriously? [gammasquad]

So you think you're a true Star Wars nerd? Test your knowledge with these 7 terms from Star Wars that don't mean what you think they  mean. [dorkly]

When it comes to movies in 3D, you either like it or hate it, but there are some video game franchises out there that could really benefit from a 3D CGI movie release. [gammasquad]

What does it look like to wring out a washcloth in space? Let's find out. [youtube]

I don't have a motorcycle, but I do have a bicycle, which is reason enough for me to get this Predator motorcycle helmet. I'll be the coolest kid on the street! [geekologie]

The time is nigh! Xbox is finally revealing their next-gen console. [geekosystem]

I love the Power Glove, it's so bad. My friend gave me a Power Glove many years ago, but I lost it very soon afterwards. I've been sad ever since, but maybe this Power Glove oven mitt will help with the sadness. [geekologie]

After all the craziness about the upcoming Ninja Turtles movie, they've officially changed the title back to what it should be. TEENAGE MUTANT Ninja Turtles! [blastr]

If you've been absent from the internet the past couple days, then maybe you haven't heard that Nintendo won't be at E3 this year. [geekosystem]

A RATCHET AND CLANK MOVIE!! I AM ALL KINDS OF EXCITE!! [ign]

I haven't posted many things food related in a while, so I found this pop-tart ice cream sandwich to be appropriate. [geekosystem]

What would a round-up be without something LEGO related? Well here ya go. Sci-Fi movie posters recreated as LEGOs. [blastr]

I love me some oldschool Disney games. Here are 5 classic Disney games that need to be remade, and some that don't. [gammasquad]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Awesome Videos Edition

The first video today is Toy Story. I know you're asking, "Toy Story? What's so great about that?" My reply is, "This is the entire Toy Story movie, re-created, shot-for-shot, with real toys." Enjoy! [geekologie]

Next on the list, we have a live action, Sonic the Hedgehog fan-film. And to add that extra little bit of awesome, they got Jaleel White to voice Sonic. [howtogeek]

This is a stop motion video, in Minecraft, that shows the building of a house. Trust me, it's WAY more amazing than it sounds. If you're any kind of fan of Minecraft, you can appreciate all the work that went into making this video. Even using creative mode, this still would have taken an extremely long time. [howtogeek]

Making a snowman is always a fun thing to do during the winter, but how about destroying them? Here are 10 ways to destroy a snowman... in slow motion. [youtube]

Even the most simple tasks, like clipping your fingernails, becomes over complicated in outer space. [youtube]

In the past, I posted a picture of the TARDIS from Doctor Who mashed up to look like the DeLoreon from Back to the Future. Well it seems someone took that concept and made a short animated video of it. Doctor Who in the world of Back to the Future. [howtogeek]

And to end out the awesome videos, I have a Buffy/Twilight video mashup. Buffy meets Edward. Edward stalks Buffy. Buffy kills Edward. Sounds good to me! [blastr]

This ends our awesome videos section of the Round-Up. BUT WAIT! I still have a few more links for you.

Duck Hunt 2. Need I say more? Get to shooting those ducks! Also, the dog isn't as annoying. In fact, he's pretty cool this time around. [howtogeek]

If you happen to be visiting China, you should check out their new bootlegged World of Warcraft theme park, called Joyland World. Seems legit. [geekologie]

Speaking of World of Warcraft, it looks as if WoW players have broken the fundraising record for hurricane Sandy relief. Who said gamers are lazy and don't care about real life stuff. [geekosystem]

So.... Myspace is back and all rebooted and everything. [geekosystem]

There's now a possibility that we could get a live-action star wars series on ABC. Ya know... with Disney owning Star Wars and all that... [blastr]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Hey there! For the 3 of you that read my round-up's, I'm sorry I wasn't able to post one last week, but I'm back with links galore! So let's hit the "Cray" button!

For those of you living under a rock, there was this one thing that happened with a dude skydiving from 24 miles up. For those who missed it, here's a recreation of the event with LEGO'S. [geekologie]

MOAR LEGOS, Ninja Turtle style! (not to be confused with gangnam style) [geekologie]

There was also a couple hardcore LEGO builders who built the Batcave. [howtogeek]

A flippin' amazeballs Batmobile concept car! [geekologie]

One of my favorite things from this time of year is pumpkin. Pumpkin ANYTHING! Here are 19 of the best ways to eat pumpkin for breakfast. [buzzfeed]

Tired of always burning the crap out of your mouth because you're too impatient to wait for your pizza to cool off before you take a bite? Well now, feel free to bite into your scalding hot pizza without fear. You can pop a "breath strip" that heals the burns from eating hot foods. [geekologie]

A real working Portal gun? Sadly, no. But a modded one that can levitate a companion cube exists! [howtogeek]

Let's all kick back, grab some popcorn, and watch 15 minutes of a documentary about the making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. [gammasquad]

A very well made Super Mario Bros. mod for Skyrim [geekologie]

If you haven't played Dishonored yet, then you're seriously missing out. Maybe these 5 reasons you NEED to play Dishonored will get you throwing your money at this game. [gammasquad]

Now here's 5 things you'll learn about yourself while playing Dishonored. [cracked]

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 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: Rage, Science, Retro and More Edition

When we last left off, our heroes had been turned into aliens. We now find ourselves with a new name. No longer the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not even the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. Nope. As of now, our heroes are only the Ninja Turtles, with Michael Bay saying, "WOAH THERE! This decision is not my fault, Yo. Take yourselves another chill pill." [blastr]

In other rage-inducing news, the writer/directors of Harold and Kumar will be rebooting the Back to the Future trilogy. Yes, you read that correctly. This is something that's going to happen. However, not in the immediate future. [blastr]

If you haven't heard, Silent Hill is being re-released in HD. You would think this would be a most excellent thing. Sadly, the developers felt that it was a good idea to sacrifice the dark, atmospheric, grainy feel, for the sake of HD. Completely causing them to miss the mark of what Silent Hill is all about. Take a look. [geekosystem]

For everyone who loves video game music. Here are the 9 best current-gen video game soundtracks. [gammasquad]

What would you say if I told you that you can go supersonic without the sonic boom? You'd think I was crazy, right? Well guess what. Some dudes have developed a supersonic biplane that, when it surpasses the speed of sound, it doesn't create a sonic boom. Maybe now a flight from LA to NYC won't take 6 hours. [geekosystem]

The future is upon us! We don't have holographic touch screens just yet, but we're close. Flexible E Ink is now in mass production. It's kinda like a Kindle if it was a flexible, thin piece of plastic that'll get lost once you set it down and walk away, or your dog finds it, mistaking it for your homework. [geekosystem]

Playstation 4: Codename Orbis [geekosystem]

Do you love pizza but find yourself too lazy to call the pizza place to order it? Why not move to Dubai?  A pizza establishment there will give you a refrigerator magnet, that, at the push of a button, automatically orders your favorite pizza for you. No fuss, no muss. Ahhh, laziness at its finest. [geekologie]

Thinking of getting engaged? Married? Why not go super ape-geek with it. You can propose to her with a TARDIS themed engagement ring, then, on the big day, you can both exchange Darth Vader/Lightsaber themed wedding bands.

Just an 64-bit girl, livin' in an 8-bit world! (didn't I make this same reference last week?) Check out these movie posters converted to their 8-bit versions. [behance]

First Nickelodeon gives us "The 90s are All That". Now Cartoon Network has decided to follow in their footsteps by giving us CARTOON PLANET. [buzzfeed]

Speaking of old 90s TV shows. Let's take a look at some 90s TV supporting actors, THEN and NOW. [buzzfeed]

For those fans of Terra Nova, with that last ray of hope that Netflix would pick up a second season, it looks as if our hope has been shattered. [blastr]

I present to you, in all it's glory, the Doctor Who season 7 trailer! (insert angelic music. Just don't blink) [geekosystem]

Prepare yourselves for  a battle of EPIC proportions. Man VS Goose. Hold on to your seats, this battle gets serious. Who will be the victor? [youtube]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: (insert edition here) Edition

Hello, and welcome to the Round-Up. (I totally stole that from the Yogscast) I have to say it's been a pretty mellow week. The only exciting thing I did was place my Pineapple Mint plant from a small pot into a large pot, and placed it outside. DON'T ALL JUMP UP WITH EXCITEMENT ALL AT ONCE. Be still your hearts.

Wow, there's so much random stuff this week, I don't know where to begin... I guess I'll just close my eyes, point to my computer, and whatever link I point to, that's what I'll begin with.

And the winner IS..... AH! A link from last week that I decided to cut, because it didn't quite fit, and I had a ton of links already.

If Star Trek's warp drive were possible, it quite well could destroy the Universe, or at least anything in front of the ship as you came out of warp drive. Yes, people actually did a study about this. It's good to know we're researching important things, like cancer, and aids, and how many licks it actually DOES take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop. [universetoday]

Check it out, it's a REAL flying DeLorean! No, seriously! SERIOUSLY! Ok, fine... it's an RC flying DeLorean, using a quadricopter, but it's still freakin' awesome, and just 1 step closer to the real thing. [geekologie]

Last week I showed you Superman vs Hulk. This week it's Stan Lee vs Superman. This time it's words and not fists doing the fighting. This is Stan Lee arguing about the lack of "science" behind DC's superheroes. Mainly Superman. (also I started 3 sentences in a row with the word "this") [blastr]

Wake up in the morning feeling like L. Skywalker. Grab my bag, I'm out this tauntaun, gonna leave this city. You know your hatred for your alarm clock as soon as it beeps. That urge you get to just throw it against the wall. WELL NOW YOU CAN! With your very own Jedi Training Remote Alarm Clock! [geekosystem]

What's better than Darth Vader playing the bagpipes? Darth Vader playing the bagpipes in a kilt? Not awesome enough for  you? How about Darth Vader playing the bagpipes, in a kilt, while riding a unicycle. AWWW YEAH! Your dreams have finally come true. [geekosystem]

You know back in middle school, you would always try to sneak in some contraband. Yes, that's right, evil things that you hide in your locker and hope they don't do a locker search. That's right... a Tamagatchi! Here's a list of the top middle school contraband from the 90s. [buzzfeed]

Speaking of things from the 90s, guess what show they're bringing back. If you guessed All That, you're... WRONG, but kinda close. It's Figure It Out. Yep, and not just reruns, but actual new episodes and everything. [buzzfeed]

Why didn't anyone tell me my old-school Game Boy could do this?!? [geekologie]

Oh, Mario... We all love that little red plumber, right? Well guess what... if you look closely, you'll find out that Mario is actually a huge d-bag, and Bowser really isn't such a bad guy. [cracked]

Most all games have the huge mega-boss you have to defeat at the end of the game, but there are some instances where there are regular enemies that prove to be much more difficult to defeat. Here are 6 terrifying baddies, from video games, that you underestimated. [dorkly]

With the new Sim City 5 trailer and screencaps, it's kinda bringing back nostalgia for other Sims games. Remember Sim Ant? Yeah... that happened. Here are 5 Sim City spin-offs that should be revived. [gammasquad]

The game we've all been waiting for, for so long, has finally gotten a release date. That's right, kids. Diablo III is finally here... well... almost. [geekosystem]

Speaking of release dates. The Ninja Turtles reboot has also announced a "time frame" for it's release. [comicbookresources]

Finally, I'll leave you this week with not one, but TWO games.

Sushi Cat. I started playing for the cute, fat kittycatness, but stayed for the jiggle physics. [armorgames]

Shoot the Aliens. It's cowboys vs aliens with a little bit of angry birds thrown in. [howtogeek]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: UMAD BRO? Edition

This is just soooo wrong, making fun of Canada like that. We all know Canadians have Mounties, not a CSI.

This week has been awesome, cuz it finally snowed, and not crappy snow, but the good kind you can make snowmen with. I made a tiny snowman in front of the movie theater last night. When I perfect my skills, I'll be making snowman works of art such as this. Welp... there's not much to talk about, so let's just jump into this thing.

We all know Whitney Houston passed away recently, and in Save Point fashion, I've found the best tribute ever made. Vegeta's tribute. [youtube]

What would you say if I told you that Link and Samus action figures will soon be released, with two versions of Samus, both with and without armor? What if I said, the Armored Samus action figure would be fully poseable, like seriously poseable for all your action-packed posing needs. *pew* *pew* *pew* [geekologie]

Speaking of "*pew* *pew* *pew*", what do you get when you shoot a large acrylic slab with a particle accelerator? Freakin' amazing fractal art, that's what! I'll take two, thanks. [geekosystem]

Normally you wouldn't think it dangerous to light a firecracker and drop it down a sewer manhole. Well guess what... Looks like this dude thought the same thing. Boy was he wrong. Hey, two little kids next to him, you might want to run away before you get crushed. What has this video taught us? Don't throw firecrackers in the Ninja Turtles home. Their booby traps will MESS YOU UP! [youtube]

TMNT 1 and 2 were awesome movies. TMNT 3, well... meh. Maybe we can rectify TMNT 3 with a TMNT live-action reboot? What do you think? Turns out Jonathan Liebesman, the guy who directed Battle L.A., is in negotiations to direct a new one. I LOVE me some live-action Ninja Turtles. If this goes though, he better not screw it up, that's all I'm sayin'. [gammasquad]

Another franchise in the works of becoming a live action movie is Twisted Metal, to be written and directed by Brian Taylor. This was one of my favorite games to play on the PlayStation. Over time it has developed an in depth and dark storyline for each of the characters. This has the potential to become a seriously amazing movie if Brian does it right. [geekosystem]

We have 3 years until 2015. That's the year when hoverboards are suppose to be made and already widely circulated. Mattel will soon be releasing Hoverboard replicas. Sadly it's only a replica of Marty's hoverboard, and as it clearly states on the packaging, it does not work on water. Looks like I'll have to wait a few years to get a Pitbull, because it's got POWAH!! [geekologie]

Whether you love or hate the fact that Star Wars is coming out in 3D, the fact is, that it's happening, and there's nothing you can do about it. George Lucas will keep finding ways to re-release the Star Wars movies, and he'll keep finding little things to change about it. Even if you hate this, is it really all that bad? Here's 4 things you need to accept about George Lucas. [cracked]

Are you only familiar with 3 or 4 Darths in the Star Wars universe? Educate yourself, with a list of ALL THE DARTHS!! in all of the Star Wars. (darth maul will always be my favorite darth. come at me bro) [ugo]

What if Star Wars actually took place within Feudal Japan? What would the characters look like? Let's find out, shall we? [howtogeek]

I'll finish up this Round-Up by destroying small bits of your childhood. Or at least show you things about it that you never realized. [buzzfeed]

GAME BONUS: Do you love Shadow of the Colossus? How about a simplified, yet still nearly as fun flash game with the same gameplay style? I present to you, Heir. [armorgames]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Angry A.D.D. Edition

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]

MOVING ON!

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.

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Only PARTIALLY Super Bowl Related Edition

HELLOOOOOOOOO SAVEPOINT!! IF YOU CAN'T TELL, I'M A BIT OVER-CAFFEINATED. THIS PAST WEDNESDAY WAS MY BIRTHDAY, AND MY PARENTS GOT ME AN ESPRESSO/CAPPUCCINO MAKER. WOOOHOOO!!! Ok... slow, deep breathes... I think I'm good now. Let's DO THIS!

As we all know, this Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. A day where people all around the world come together to stuff their faces with empty calorie foods, and not get judged for it. Also, to watch football. Now, if you want my opinion, which you probably don't, but I'm going to give it to you anyway, I usually always enjoy the Super Bowl, however, I don't like either team playing this year, so I hope nobody wins. Score 0:0. First tie in Super Bowl history. Giants suck. Patriots suck. Cowboys FOREVER! Yeah, THAT'S RIGHT! COME AT ME, BRO! So in celebration of this year's crappy Super Bowl, I'll start off with a few SB related links.

Let's begin with 5 reasons NOT to watch the Super Bowl this year. [bleacherreport]

We all know that a lot of people don't even care about football, and only watch the Super Bowl because of the commercials. I can respect that. Some of the best commercials ever have spawned from the Super Bowl. Here are the 5 funniest Super Bowl ads that aren't Doritos. [bleacherreport]

If you recall, a couple weeks ago, I posted a link to a teaser ad with a bunch of dogs barking the Imperial March. Well if you can't wait until the Super Bowl to watch it, here's the actual commercial that will be playing. How do you think it compares to last year's L'il Vader commercial? [blastr]

Did any of you see the teaser ad with Ferris Bueller? Well once again, if you're too lazy to wait until SB Sunday, here's the full ad that will be airing. [geekosystem]

Jerry Seinfeld + Soup Nazi = another SB ad you can watch before it airs. [geekosystem]

Ok, here's a Super Bowl ad, from Budweiser, that will ONLY be airing in Canada, so it's not a spoiler for the rest of us, since we won't be seeing it anyway. It's not a funny ad, but one of those "heart-warming" style commercials. But don't let that deter you, it's still a good commercial. [buzzfeed]

OK ENOUGH ABOUT THE SUPER BOWL!

If you're like me, you know a lot of people who are completely ignorant when it comes to computers, and that's the nice way of putting it. The second something goes wrong, they have NO CLUE what to do, and totally freak out. Then they either come to me to have me take time out of my day to fix it, or drop $200 to have it fixed by a computer repair shop. When if they took a little time, they could run a couple programs, and completely fixed the problem by themselves, without having to waste my time, or going into debt. For all of you people like that, here's 5 things you should know before trying to fix your computer. [cracked]

Ever wanted to build your own Borderlands Claptrap, or more accurately CL4P-TP? Well this guy did. It may not move around or talk, but it's still pretty dang awesome. [baronriot]

Hill Valley re-created with LEGOS. That should be incentive enough to click the link. [geekologie]

Have you ever looked at a video game controller and thought to yourself, "Man I wish I could wash myself with that thing." I know Lisa sure has. Well now all your dreams have come true, and not only with controllers, but other geeky things as well. How about scrub-a-dub-dubbing it up with a Rubix Cube? [geekosystem]

Click the picture to see a larger version.

HOLY EVERYTHING THAT'S HOLY! NEW NINJA TURTLE ACTION FIGURES! Move over little snot-nosed 12 year old kiddies, these suckers are MINE! [geekologie]

Thursday was Groundhog day, and if you're anybody who's anybody you have love the movie. It's a classic, and hilarious, and is on the list of required movies to watch or be shunned by humanity for the rest of your life. So with that said, here are 12 things you probably didn't know about the movie. [buzzfeed]

Whether you love 3D movies, or hate them, the honest truth is they're here to stay, and aren't you tired of the same old black, uncomfortable 3D glasses? For the release of the upcoming Avengers movie, you can get a pair of special edition 3D glasses for an extra $5.00. I'm sure they'll be more comfortable, and you can wear them to other 3D movies as well, and be the envy of all your black-glasses-wearing friends. [ology]

Remember the Abominable Snow Monster from the most awesomazing Microsoft Windows game, Ski Free? Well it looks like he's getting a bit more creative in trying to catch the skier as he ski's down the endless mountain-side. [howtogeek]

Finally, if you recall a few weeks ago I presented you with a video called Skyrim 2012, created by the GroBroPros. Well it seems it was so popular, that the guys have made a part 2. Let us watch, and bask in the hilarity, shall we? [gammasquad]
