Waaaay better than your average potted plant. And all you need to make one is, “a playground ball, a plastic bowl, some felt and dowel. Oh, and some Atomic Fireball candy, if you want to upgrade your piranha plants to Super Mario Bros. 3‘s Venus Fire Traps.” Genius! (TDW: Geek)

 

Monopoly, Fallout style. Sadly, this isn’t a reality…yet. This is from DeviantArtist PinkAxolotl, but I think we should be writing to Bethesda and Hasbro and be like, “Bitches, give us a Fallout version of Monopoly. Bitches.” (TDW: Geek)

I’m guessing Nintendo could sell these today and plenty of people would still buy them. Sure, the 64 is way out of date, but it’s a classic. Add in a special modded case, and you’ve got a collector’s item. (TDW: Geek)

 

It’s always Loki. The source of all Norse frustration. (The Mary Sue)

 

Awe, yeah you are. (Fashionably Geek)

 

Ooooh. So it’s the shirt that kills the man, not his ineptitude as a Starfleet officer. (Fashionably Geek)
