You have to be really devoted to Star Wars to do things like cosplay, or build your kid a cool Star Wars themed room. You have to be completely devoted and also obsessed to build a full-scale replica of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit.
Way back in the day, I went straight from high school to college into a medical program that saw me going from a broke high-school student to 19-year-old with an actual career making good money. The very first thing I bought with my very first paycheck was a 3DO game system and a copy of Myst.
If you’ve ever wanted to build your own Formula 1 race car out of coke cans, this cool video will show you how. The Q channel recently built a giant Coca-Cola F1 race car using Coke and Coca-Cola Light cans, PVC pipe, and glue.
Who feels like making breakfast when you’re still half asleep? Not me. That’s why I have to build a breakfast-making robot like this one. This breakfast-making machine is amazing. It will make you bacon and eggs using two custom-built LEGO robots.

Julius Caesar was kind of a dick. So much so that all his friends ganged up and stabbed the life out of him. Even his best pal Brutus. Sometimes you gots to cut a brother.

LEGO and aquarium are two words that don’t usually go together. As versatile as the bricks are, I’m guessing the gaps aren’t water-tight. That’s why you don’t see giant LEGO ships traveling the world’s oceans, delivering LEGO sets where they are needed.
