Child’s Tombstone Shows Him Playing Pokémon
Redditor Paramorgue found an extraordinary tombstone in his hometown in Lund, Sweden. He says it’s dedicated to a boy who died when he was just five years old. The statue immortalizes the child enjoying perhaps what was one of his favorite pastimes: playing Pokémon.

Skee Ball machines are a lot of fun. There is something just so satisfying in the act of rolling a ball and watching it bounce into a target. I played as much Skee Ball as I could when I was a kid.

That’s No Soccer Ball, It’s a Death Star!
Since there’s no mention of soccer or any other sports in the Star Wars universe, I’m not sure it’s even still a thing in a galaxy far, far away.

Furniture Made Like Stretchy Fruit Packaging
I’m sure you’ve bought fruit or had some at home when it was still wrapped snugly in the box in its foam rubber packaging.

Girlfriend Is Making This Guy Sell His Giant AT-ST Walker
Man, it isn’t easy being a geek with a girlfriend or wife sometimes. You know the story. You find something you love and you display it. You love it, but she hates it. That’s what happened with the gigantic AT-ST Walker that is for sale on eBay right now.

Study Says Eating Bacon Will Make You Live Longer… Sorta.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, bacon is proof God loves us. Crispity, crunchity bacon is easily my favorite food. The problem is a lot of people want you to believe bacon is bad for you.

Stick Your Head in the Clouds of ‘Cloud Pink’
Has anyone ever told you that you’ve always got your head in the clouds? Daydreaming isn’t a bad thing because it stimulates your imagination, just as long as you don’t lose sight of reality. If people stopped dreaming, they’d stop thinking outside of the box and unusually amazing art installations like Cloud Pink wouldn’t come to be.

“Talking” Tauntaun Stuffed Animal Will Keep You Warm at Night
The Tauntaun was the best way to get around the frigid surface of the ice planet Hoth. It was also the place to keep warm if you were hypothermic, assuming you have a friend with a lightsaber ready to cut the beast open.
