Dragon Hoodie Will Warm Geeky Hearts, Cost A Fortune

dragon-hoodie-1

It’s a cotton hoodie. It kind of looks like a dragon. Comes with a velcro detachable tail, and “hand-crafted arms with escape claws.” You wear this on the street, and you’re sending a clear message: you, my friend, are into dragons. And you better be if you’re willing to pay the $400 asking price. Comes in only one size, and in black and white.

Ultimate Gamer Proposal: Guy Hacks Contra Cartridge to Propose to Girlfriend

NES Proposal

Times have changed. Getting down on one knee and popping the question after a romantic dinner isn’t good enough anymore. At least, not in the eyes of the many men and women who constantly see the amazing and definitely unusual proposals that people have been coming up with these past couple of years.

Another proposal that can be dubbed as “amazing” is the one Redditor Equinn0xX came up with.Continue Reading

Jupiter Cake Puts The Yum In Nerdalicious

ccjupitercake08

See? That’s an awful headline. Why? Because it doesn’t make sense. But at the same time, you get the idea. Right?… Anyway, the cake you’re looking at is Cakecrumb’s rendition of Jupiter. We like it because as geeks we’ve found that we’re fond of all things science (as well as tech), so we tend to look up at the skies occasionally, and we read space exploration news when they become available. And while this doesn’t count as space exploration, it does count as a delicious looking reminder that the little rock we inhabit has cousins that are as beautiful to look at as they are inhospitable to life. The multiple layers you see represent a theoretical “core comprised mostly of rock and ice… surrounded by a layer liquid metallic hydrogen, and the outer layer is composed of molecular hydrogen.”

We’ve posted about Cakebrumb’s geeky cakes once before, and we’re sort of starting to become fans. And yes, she does take on commissions, so if you’re really into it, she could make you one.

The Times We Live In

diner-out

Well… maybe this applies only to some small portion of the population. Don’t go reading into this comic too much, I’m just saying this does happen from time to time, and a jerk will be a jerk, smartphone or not. It was just a brief bit of entertainment.

Carry on.

These Wedding Rings Say ‘I Do’ in Wavelengths

I Do Wedding Rings

Of course, both parties in a couple have already said “I do” to each other prior to buying the rings or walking down the aisle. But nothing makes that point across or any clearer than these wedding bands by Japanese artist and designer Sakurako Shimizu.

These custom-made bands are simplistic but contain a very strong message. Whether it’s “I do”, “Forever”, or “I Love You”, couples can say anything they want to and then wear it on their ring fingers afterwards. It sounds confusing, but that’s where the beauty and uniqueness of these rings lie: Shimuzu’s unique design will have the couple say their word or phrase of choice, which is then recorded. The wavelength form of these recordings will then be featured on the rings.

The wavelength bands are available in silver, 18K and 14K white, yellow, and red gold, and platinum.
