Eddard Stark Action Figure Still Has His Head

Eddard Stark Action Figure Still Has His Head
I made it through almost the entire first season of Game of Thrones assuming that Ned Stark would be a main character throughout the entire series. Having not read any of the books, it was a decent enough assumption that happened to be very wrong.

Ants March Around iPhone When it Rings
I find ants to be creepy. I mean, they aren’t as bad as spiders, but still, I would crush every one of them if I could. At least now I know how to make them march in a perfect circle and stay away from me.

Star Wars Wall Décor: A Long Time Ago, on a Wall Far, Far, Away
I always figured the Dark Side of the Force had a better recruiting program than simply waiting for your kids to grow up and trying to turn them to evil.

Guy Builds Homemade Flying Machine Using 54 Drone Rotors
Like the Wright brothers before him, this man has a serious need to fly. Some might call him adventurous. Others would call him innovative. I call him crazy. The custom-built aircraft you see here is called “The Swarm,” but I call it, “Let me off ths crazy thing!” A single drone can’t lift a person, but wire 54 drone rotors together and it’s not a problem.

Steampunk Gas Mask Looks Like Fallout, but Won’t Save You from It
Halloween will be here before you know it. They already have Halloween stuff in the stores, and the giant Halloween pop-up store in my town is already open. That means it’s time to start thinking about what you want to dress up as.

Wild West Batman: The Hero Deadwood Deserves

Wild West Batman: The Hero Deadwood Deserves
Normally, city slicker Batman wears a cowl that has pointy ears on it, but his country cousin Western Batman has a cowboy hat that has pointy ears on it. I love this alternative Batman character, it reminds me a lot of the Gunslinger from the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.
