For quite a while, I have thought it would be a good idea to have a gas mask laying around just in case.  I have never got around to actually buying one, but one of these days I will make a trip to the army surplus store and pick one up.  However, I would much more prefer to have one of these awesome Portal inspired gas masks, even if they may not be as good as the real thing.

For those that want one of these awesome Aperture Science Portal gas masks, DeviantART user Two Horns United is taking names on a waiting list and will be making them this summer.  The bad news is that they cost $280.  But can you really put a price on something cool like this?

From all of the hacked construction signs I have seen, it seems like construction companies or departments of transportation don’t seem to care much about their security so anybody with a little knowledge can change the message on the signs.  In this case, one of those light up road signs owned by the Colorado Department of Transportation that was stationed in Boulder has been hacked yet again.  Last year, the sign warned about zombies ahead but this time in hopes of putting the fear in Doctor Who fans, the sign is warning of Daleks ahead!  EXTERMINATE!

I can’t say I have a huge desire to ever get married but I do have a huge desire to have a really geeky wedding cake if I ever do.  Well, apparently one couple (sadly, I don’t know who or even who made this cake) had this awesome Star Wars Death Star cake made for their special day.  This is probably one of the more simple looking Death Star cakes I have posted, but it still looks pretty cool, especially with all of the various Star Wars logos on the side.

The real question is how yummy was this cake?

Having never played Diablo, I can’t say I have been that interested in checking out the new Diablo III game, especially with all of the server problems and account hacking issues that I have been hearing about.  Instead, I figured it would be enjoyable to just poke fun at the botched video game launch with some bathroom humor.

I don’t know who did this to an out of order urinal, but if this was at some place that people will understand the reference like a video game retailer, then I would say this is absolutely genius!  Error 37:  You can’t pee right now!

If Pokemon isn’t your thing, you probably didn’t care too much about the Pokemon coffee cup sizes I posted a while back, but if you are a Legend of Zelda fan, than you are sure to flip over this awesome set of Link coffee cups!  I’m not sure what coffee house is serving coffee in awesome Link cups like this, but I would definitely visit that place often if it was near me, even if I don’t drink coffee!

Depending on what size coffee you want, you can order an 8-bit Link coffee (12 oz.), a Wind Waker Link coffee (16 oz.) or Skyward Sword Link coffee(20 oz).  Not being a Wind Waker fan, I would probably go with any size but that one.
