Anybody who has been a reader of Global Geek News for any significant amount of time (I’ve been blogging here for 7 years and I will be hitting 2000 posts very soon!) knows that if there is one thing I love, it is women in Link cosplay.  Why do I love it so much?  Simple, because I find pointy ears to be attractive.  Well, unfortunately this Legend of Zelda cosplayer has her hair covering her ears so I don’t know if they are pointy or not, but even without them, this is still some great Link cosplay!

If there is one thing I love, it is giant geeky tattoos and this is one of the coolest ones I have ever seen!  DeviantART user graynd is apparently a big fan of both Star Wars and the artist Salavador Dali because they designed this amazing Dali-style Star Wars tattoo!  I’m not sure who did the actual tattooing, but the design is absolutely amazing!  I wish I had the artistic skills and creativity it takes to create something like that but unfortunately, I don’t have an artistic bone in my body.  I guess I will just have to stick to admiring those like graynd that do!

NEW YORK, NY - JULY 29: Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson answers science questions from the crowd at the Williamsburg Waterfront on July 29, 2011 in New York City. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

It seems pretty hard to find people that are truly inspired to achieve something greater these days when everybody is worried about things like the economy, job market, education and the list goes on and on.  However, have you ever stopped to ask yourself why we seem to be going backwards while countries like China seem to be about to shoot right passed us?

Well, in the 28th National Space Symposium keynote that is well worth your time to watch in the video below (it really starts at about 6 minutes and runs for about an hour), Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson suggests that our lack of motivation and inspiration is because we have stopped trying to expand man’s presence in space and that it can all be fixed by simply doubling NASA’s budget to $.01 on the tax dollar.  He proposes an extremely compelling argument that I completely agree with and I find the speech to be one of the best speeches I have ever heard so please watch it below (40 min of speech and 20 min of Q&A)!

Although I don’t have the rhythm necessary to play an instrument, I am always fascinated when I see that a musician has gone above and beyond to customize their instrument of choice.  In the past, I have posted numerous Millennium Falcon guitars and even a Halo guitar, but this is the first time I have ever come across a customized guitar and amp!  Unfortunately, I’m not sure who the proud owner or creator of this amazing Super Mario Bros guitar and question block amp is, but it is one of the better looking custom guitars I have seen!  The guitar itself is perhaps the best looking part of this picture but there is just something really cute about using Yoshi, Mario and Luigi heads as the knobs for the amp.

Whenever I see an amazing console mod it makes me absolutely giddy.  I may not have the skills required to do any modding behind putting a custom faceplate on my PSP, but I can always dream of owning one of the amazing console mods that I stumble across.  In this case, I would kill to have this absolutely amazing Assassin’s Creed PlayStation 3 console mod.  Of all the video game console mods I have seen, this is likely my all time favorite and definitely the only one I have seen with a sword sticking out of the top!

The only school I ever attended that had lockers was middle school, but unfortunately we weren’t allowed to do any kind of decoration to the lockers.  Well, it seems some lucky students go to a school that is cool enough to let the students paint up the lockers however they like so three of the students apparently got together and painted their lockers to look like the TARDIS.  This is the awesome stuff that happens when you let students be themselves and express themselves instead of trying to make them hide their individuality with school uniforms and garbage that tries to condition them to be mindless drones rather than individuals.  Thumbs up to this school!
