Anybody who knows me knows I have a slight obsession with science.  There isn’t any one particular area of science that dominates my interests as I am interested in knowing everything I can about the universe around me although I would probably say that the time I spend reading science related articles tends to skew a bit towards the worlds of particle physics and astrophysics.  I suppose my love for science largely comes from growing up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy as a kid (I still watch it on occasion) and that is also a big reason why I love this shirt!

The incredible folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this awesome Bill Nye Science Rules t-shirt for $19.99!  This shirt is 100% cotton for those who care about such things (not me).  And in the interest of full disclosure, that is an affiliate link so that we get credit for referring you assuming you are cool enough to buy this shirt.

If you have a love for Bill Nye and his bow tie or you just think that science rules, then this is the shirt for you!  Also, if you have a science loving family member or friend that you are looking for a gift for, then this is the shirt you have been looking for!

It has been a really long time since I have posted a geeky ring on here because normally I save posts like that for my other blog, Fanboy Fashion.  However, since I already have something picked out to post over on there this morning (amazing steampunk Tinkerbell cosplay), I figured I might as well share this awesome World of Warcraft ring here on Global Geek News!

I think by now it is pretty well known that I won’t touch World of Warcraft with a ten foot pole for reasons ranging from my refusal to pay a subscription to play a game I already paid full price for to the addictive nature of the game however I still enjoy seeing cool things that people make that are inspired by the game like cosplay and cakes.  Well, now somebody has designed a WoW engagement ring that I think is pretty cool.

Etsy seller is selling this stunning World of Warcraft Horde engagement ring for between $490-4,600 depending on the type of metal you want and if you want natural or created stones.

If you have a special someone who loves World of Worcraft and is a Horde player that you are looking to marry, nothing will say I love you any better than this awesome WoW Horde engagement ring!

In the past, I have seen and posted about people don’t some really cool stuff with stained glass but never with glass rods.  Honestly, I don’t think I realized that glass rods were even a thing until I saw this picture below.  However, I think this might just be cooler than all of those stained glass things I have posted in the past if for no other reason than this is 3D!

Reddit user LizWrong spent around 24 hours over two weeks making this incredible 2′ tall R2-D2 out of bent and welded glass rods.  I’d say it was time well spent because I think it turned out amazing!  This is definitely the glass droid I haven’t been looking for!

I wish I had the knowledge and skills to do something like this.  Heck, I didn’t even know you could weld glass until I saw LizWrong’s description of it.  I can now say I have learned something new today!

If you like to play with glass and make geeky things like this, let us know in the comments below and we might feature some of your work!

It has been a long time since I have posted a geeky cake (two months to be exact) so I thought today would be the perfect day to post one since I came across this cool Mario cake in my normal visits to my favorite nerd sites.  I’ve posted a ton of Super Mario themed cakes and even cupcakes in the past such as this mind blowing Super Mario Bros wedding cake and this sweet Mario warp pipe cake but I’m pretty sure this is the first one that has featured a giant mushroom as a house.

This cute Super Mario inspired cake was created by Cake Central Member KOs Cakes.  It features all kinds of Mario staples like Mario (obviously), a goomba, piranha plants, fire flower power ups, stars, mushrooms and more!  As for the tasty details of this cake, Mario, the chimney, clouds and plants were made out of modeling chocolate and the mushroom house is made with fondant (not so tasty).

Even though I may have a major dislike of fondant, you can’t argue with how good of looking cakes you make out the stuff.

It never ceases to amaze me how people will put such tremendous amounts of time into a project just to make something cool.  Whether it is some giant piece of bead art or a massive LEGO build, I am always blown away by the things that people spend months making just to make something amazing.  Well, speaking of amazing things that took a long time to make, I woke up this morning to find this incredible Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past map cross-stitch that took 9 months to make!

Like most mornings, when I woke up, one of the first websites I checked was reddit and unlike some mornings, it really paid off because on the front page was this incredible Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past map cross-stitch created by user tibtibs.  It took her 400-500 hours over 9 months to make this incredible cross-stitch for her boyfriend who is obviously a big Zelda fan and an extremely lucky man!

She didn’t have a link (pun intended) but she says she found the pattern on Etsy so if you have some cross-stitching skills and want to make your own, you can probably find the pattern on there somewhere.

If you are like me, you are already at the point where you have more Doctor Who shirts than you can ever wear regularly but you just can’t stop yourself from buying more.  I didn’t count them but last night I ball-parked the number of shirts I have at somewhere around 100 and I see no signs of me slowing down in my shirt purchases.  It is thanks to dirt cheap yet awesome shirts like the ones below that I have outgrown my closet and have a stack of t-shirts as tall as my ceiling (I’m not even joking).  Well, with the shirts below, it looks like I will have 2 more to add to the pile.

The super geeks over at TeeFury are selling these two fantastic Doctor Who shirts for just $11 each today only!  The one with the 11th Doctor painting the 9th Doctor while looking at his reflection which is the 10th Doctor is called Doctor Rockwell by Creative Outpouring and the other shirt featuring the 10th Doctor is called The Oncoming Storm by Jhimmelman.  Also, you get some sort of Gali

Whether you are a Doctor Who fan or know one who would like one of these shirts, I suggest ordering them now before they go away!
