Boba Fett Rings

boba-fett-rings-2

These Boba Fett themed rings are about as awesome as Star Wars inspired jewelry gets, at least in our book. Whether you’re a fan yourself or you know someone that would go nuts being gifted one of these, they make a great purchase. Granted it’s not cheap with prices starting at $280 for the silver versions, but this is a very unique looking piece of finger adornment. And of course you can get them in gold of various degrees of purity, for increasingly eye watering sums of money.

Addicted To Reddit? Don’t Cure It, Enable It!

1647_karma_controller_diy_reddit

There are worse ways to waste your life away than by browsing Reddit 25 hours a day. Others feel the same, so that’s why we’re not even a bit surprised to read about the Karma Controller DIY Reddit Interface Device. It’s an assemble-at-home kit containing a controller board, switches, buttons and other parts that eventually turn into a gamepad of sorts, with which you control Reddit. What can you do? “Upvote, downvote, select posts, toggle images, and open & close comment tabs,” which makes browsing the site “like a videogame.” You do have to have the open source Reddit Enhancement Suite installed on your browser, but it’s free anyway. The kit however isn’t, although it’s pretty cheap, at $30.

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.
