After wowing us with his homemade Predator costume, Shawn Thorsson does it again, this time with great-looking Halo Master Chief costumes. Shawn wasn’t content to just make one though.

If anything ever proved holding a high rank in any military the world over doesn’t mean you aren’t a dumb ass this does. Apparently, an error with a border on Google Maps has led to a bit of international scandal down in Central America.

Klaus Diebel has always been a modder. He started out modding bicycles, then surfboards, then furniture, and now coffee-making computers.

Clean Bottle Makes It Easy To… You Know… Clean
I hate cleaning stuff. I generally wait until there is enough toothpaste caked on my sink that I can’t lean over it without getting dirty. I also hate doing dishes and once went two weeks eating from napkins and paper towels to avoid dishes.
