Public Service Announcement:
Starting March 1, Google is implementing their new and improved user policy. Apparently they’re simplifying it to cover all platforms and it does indeed affect everyone with a Google account. If for some reason you don’t want your search history to be part of this, you do have the option to delete it as well as turn it off so Google doesn’t save anything you search. Big brother is nosy enough, we don’t need them knowing the random things we search for right? Right! Follow the link to the instructions on the turn off option. (via Dvice)
The Force is Strong With This One
This is so frakking cute I can’t even stand it. This is one kid’s Valentine to his teacher. He (I assume) thinks she’s great even though she doesn’t serve on the Jedi Council. Nice of him to overlook that. (via Nerd Approved)
Prepare for Summer
Do you often find yourself on the losing end of a water gun battle? Do you need a non-violent way to keep those pesky kids off your lawn? Or do you just want to say that you have a monster of a toy? Whatever your reasons, I’m pretty sure that you this. This, my friends, is the new Nerf Super Soaker Lightning Storm. It holds a 37 ounce water drum and can shoot a stream up to 25 feet. That’s serious business. It’s battery-powered, available this spring and will cost you $25. Now you can drench the crap out of your kids while doing your best Tony Montana impersonation. Say hello to your little friend indeed. (via Dvice)
Best. Wedding Cake. Ever.
So if you’ve followed me for any length of time you know that I dig cakes. Especially science fiction themed cakes. You’ll also know that I love Battlestar Galactica. So what happens when the two things I <3 the most come together? Pure awesomeness! I don’t know whose wedding cake this is, but I love it. When the day comes, I just may need to copy their idea. Because it’s that awesome! (via imgur)
Oh That’s All??
$852 quadrillion. That’s the amount of estimated cabbage it would cost to build a real life Death Star. The brainiacs over at Centives figured out how much it would cost, how much iron would be needed, and how long it would take. The numbers are ridiculous. The good news is that the Earth has enough iron to produce 200 Death Stars. The bad news is that it would take 833,315 years to produce enough steel to even begin working on it. The good news is that if Return of the Jedi taught us anything, it’s that the Death Star doesn’t have to be complete to be a fully functioning battle station. (via Centives)
This Week….on Etsy:
This week on Etsy happens to be one of my favorite things ever. I love oven mitts. No idea why, but it all started with a whale oven mitt Roomie got for me years and years ago. I still have it and use it to this day. I don’t collect them or anything, but I’m always on the look out for fun, themed mitts. Etsy seller Dee Ryan has loads of oven mitts for everyone from Elvis fans to Marvel fans. I think I might have to get a couple of these. You know…just because. (via Etsy)
The only suitable reaction warranted here is a facepalm. What I really want to see are the succeeding comments. I can only image that first commenter took a beating. If they didn’t, they deserve to. I’m just sayin’…(via Dorkly)
Think you know movies? Well test your noodle with this 60 second video that goes through the alphabet of films. I’m proud to say that I got through this with pretty decent results. A few of them stumped me, but overall I did well. How many will you get right? (via Vimeo)
I had a couple of thoughts while watching this second video, the first being did they go out to shovel the snow first and think “oh hey, this would make a great video”. Such a boring chore shouldn’t work in a video like this, but strangely, it totally does. I especially love the music and the version of a power up that they use. Plus, everything is better with zombies right?
