Some people have no idea how to decorate their living room. Well this guy did. He figured, "Why not turn it into a huge diorama of the battle of Hoth." "Honey! Do we have any cardboard?!?" [geekologie]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: It’s My Birthday Edition!

Yes, folks, as is states in the title, today is my birthday! After an entire year of gaining XP, I've finally leveled up. So other than that, this Round-Up will go on as usual. Please enjoy.

I grew up watching the original Transformers series. I loved, and still love Transformers. Yes, I even enjoyed the Michael Bay movies. Why? Uhhh.. Transformers, that's why! I have no reservations about saying that on this site, because Lisa's not even gonna read this, so it don't even matter. haha OK, BACK ON POINT...  During the course of the existence of Transformers, there have been a few... bizarre ones to say the least. [geekosystem]

Want to be a genius, or at least look like you are? Try these nifty tricks! [cracked]

If you enjoy a good pair of high heels then why not buy yourself a nerded out pair of R2D2 high heels. You'll be the envy of everyone at the party. [geekologie]

None of you can say you haven't imagined how awesome it would be to have a super power, but there are a few super powers that look like they'd be amazing to have, but in real world physics and what-not, they would suck. [cracked]

Now why isn't everyone's grandpa as awesome as this guy? Grandpa plays Call of Duty and Halo, and totally enjoys every minute of it. To be honest, he'd probably kick my but. I've stated many times in the past... I suck at FPSs. I won't even front. [geekologie]

There is now, officially, a director for Star Wars Episode VII. [geekosystem]

Do you have a video game room, but it's missing that one thing that you can't quite place your finger on? Well look no more, I've found it for you. You need this wooden NES controller coffee table, DUH! [geekologie]

Most of the time video games based off of movies or TV shows, to put it mildly, SUCK! However, once in a while you get a gem or two that don't. Here are the 10 greatest videogames based on TV shows. [dorkly]

Let's take a look at 16 "gross" pizza's from international pizza huts. To be honest, some of these really don't look that bad. [buzzfeed]

We've all talked about how awesome it would be to mount laser beams onto sharks. Well guess what... this dream has been made into reality. [buzzfeed]

We all love our theme songs, and so does Youtuber 331Erock. In fact, he loves them so much, he decided to reimagine many of them with a metal overlay. That's right, folks, you can listen to metal versions of TMNT, Dr Who, Zelda, Star Wars, Megaman, and more. [geekologie]

Our dreams are slowly coming true. A Back to the Future LEGO kit is a definite possibility, with different LEGO's to redesign the DeLorean to match all 3 movies. [geekosystem]

For those of you who still haven't been able to purchase an XBOX 360 over the past 6 years, now's your chance. XBOX is offering a $99 XBOX 360 with Kinect, with a 2 year XBOX LIVE contract at $15 a month. [geekosystem]

Video games have inspired many things, including movies and TV shows. Some of them turn out well, others, well, don't. Here are 8 of the worst TV shows inspired by video games. [dorkly]

All of us have our favorite super hero, but when it comes down to it, we ALL must respect the Batman. Or should we...? Here are 6 ways that Iron Man is objectively better than Batman. [cracked]

One of my favorite shows on TV is Mythbusters. It's so awesome to see real science put up against myths, stereotypes, and even Youtube videos. I'm also not ashamed to say that the explosions and Kari Byron also play a part in my interest of this show. Here are 5 reasons that Mythbusters is one of the best nerd shows on TV. [gammasquad]

Speaking of explosions, let's watch a video of people explosively launching 55 gallon metal drums into the air. This seems perfectly safe. [geekologie]
