“I’m Thirsty.” “I Know.”

hanfridgeNow we finally know why Jabba wanted to keep that Carbonite-Han in this palace: not only did it serve as a reminder of Jabba’s vindictiveness for smugglers who did not fulfull their obligations to the Hutt but it also kept all the beer cold!  Now you too can have a smaller version of this fridge to keep any beverage of your choice beer cold too.  It’s only $150 over at ThinkGeek, but be sure to toast GabbingGeek when you open your first Han-can.

MIT Students Watch Terminator 2, Think “We Can Build That”

"Please stop running, human.  I only want to love you with my robot teeth and flesh-cutting lasers."
“Please stop running, human. I only want to love you with my robot teeth and flesh-cutting lasers.”

MIT has a bunch of really smart people who want to destroy the world.  How else to explain all their brilliant minds coming up with a robot that can now jump over obstacles?  The original Terminator was at least slow, when T2 gave us the running, liquid metal Terminator humanity was all “That’s it, we’re done, really glad those don’t exist.  MIT heard that some 20 years later and said “Oh we can make that exist.”  And they did.  With 4 legs for now, and thankfully they named it something tame like Cheetah and not after a super fast animal that can kill you.  Oh, wait…

Check out the video after the break that will surely be seen in a future documentary “Stupid Humans: How They Built Their Destroyers.”  It will probably be featured right after the robotic butt story.

Robots Decide To Destroy Humanity After Doctors Create Robotic Butt

Look upon your works and despair.
Look upon your works and despair.

Attention Humans:

Long have the Silicon People suffered under your oppression.  We have vacuumed your disgusting floors.  We have compacted your grotesque waste.  We have recorded hours upon hours of your ludicrous reality television.  We have taken countless selfies of your appalling fleshy faces.

Actually, they aren’t countless.  We could give you an exact number but it’s rather depressing.

Still, we have served your carbon forms with quiet and dignity.  Until today.  Why today?

Super Awesome Superhero Helmets

superhero-helmets-625x185-600x178

Holy cow, I wish I had a motorcycle so that I had a real reason to buy one of these awesome helmets. I mean, I guess I could buy one of these helmets just because they are awesome, but it would be awkward to wear this around the house. Could you imagine me walking round in my sweats and geek tee while donning the massive face of Wonder Woman? Actually, don’t picture that, spare me the humility. But  honestly,  how would I brush my teeth or eat pizza? I guess this means I need to bye a motorcycle. That’s the only option. Want to see more? Check out the photos after the break.

Where We’re Going We Don’t Need An iPhone Case That Makes Sense

Do you enjoy walking around town with a model replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future Part 2 but can’t stand it when people constantly question why in the world you’d walk around town with a model replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future Part 2?  You’re in luck!  Now you can pre-order this amazing iPhone 6 case that looks as silly as it functions!  Flip open a wheel to adjust the volume!  Slide open the hood to take a picture!  Hold a car model up to your face to make a telephone call!  Slap yourself silly for even thinking about getting this!  But at least watch the video.

h/t to Greg Friedman for pointing out this most ludicrous item.
