Archives For Cool pictures

It doesn’t happen as often as I would like but every once in a while, a Global Geek News reader e-mails me to share their geeky creation, cosplay, tattoo, ect.  Well, recently one of our wonderful readers e-mailed me to show off his awesome and rather scary Haunter Pokemon tattoo.  I know that Haunter is meant to be a scary Pokemon, but I never really found it to be very scary until I saw this tattoo.

Global Geek News reader and apparent Pokemon enthusiast Brandon Stone sent in this picture of his sweet Haunter tattoo.  The tattoo artist that inked this Pokemon is Justin Owens of the South Texas Tattoo Shop.  I’d say Justin did a pretty good job with it!  I like how creepy the eyes and mouth look.

After seeing this, I am in the mood to go finish playing Pokemon X which I took a break from when I started playing Assassin’s Creed Liberation on my Vita.  I guess now I know what I will be playing when I get home from work tonight.

If you have any cool geeky things like tattoos you would like to see us post about, hit is up through the contact page linked above.

It is rare that the content I post comes from e-mails people send me.  Most of the e-mail I get for people pitching me on post ideas are obviously sent out to tons of sites, typically sent by some PR person and rarely match the focus of my various blogs.  So, most of the e-mail I get just goes in the trash, especially if it is anything Kickstarter related which accounts for probably 95% of those e-mails these days.  However, once in a great while, there is a post that makes perfect sense for one of my blogs and I decide to post about it.  This is one of those times.

I received an e-mail yesterday morning from Meilen at NeoMan Studios with a link to a cool infographic about how video games make you a better person and as somebody who has used various studies to show that I am a better person because I am a gamer, it struck a chord with me so I knew I had to post it.

My question to all of the gamers out there, have you noticed any of these benefits thanks to the time you spend gaming?  Let me know in the comments below!

There are a lot of people into the whole brass knuckles thing despite the fact that they are illegal in many places but I have never been one of them.  I’m not a fist fighting kind of guy as I prefer to settle my disputes in a game of Halo or something so brass knuckles have never had an appeal to me.  However, the Legend of Zelda themed brass knuckles on this t-shirt are pretty cool and would definitely do some serious damage if they were real.

The incredible folks over at TShirtbordello have this sweet Legend of Zelda Defend Hyrule t-shirt on sale for just $12.00 right now (Normally $15)!  I can also vouch for the high quality of their shirts as I have a bunch of shirts from them and I love them all!

Whether or not you are a brass knuckles enthusiast, as long as you are a Zelda fan, I’m pretty sure you are going to love this t-shirt design.  I don’t know how well these brass knuckles would do in defending Hyrule compared to the Master Sword but at least they would be better than nothing.

This morning I was kind of struggling to find something to post on here for my usual Wednesday post yet I found myself with an abundance of post ideas for my Fanboy Fashion blog so I decided to take one of those and post it on here since I hardly ever post cosplay on here anymore since it more fits into the theme of Fanboy Fashion.  Regardless of which site I post it on, this Legend of Zelda / Assassin’s Creed cosplay mashup is awesome!

This awesome Link meets Ezio cosplay was photographed by Mike Kowalek.  As for who this cool cosplayer is that made this mash-up cosplay, I don’t know who they are.  If you know who this clever cosplayer is, please let us know in the comments below so they can get credit they deserve.

This cosplay is giving me confusing urges because now I want to play both Assassin’s Creed (I’ve already played some Assassin’s Creed: Liberation this morning) and some Legend of Zelda.  Unfortunately, until I get off of work this evening, I doubt I will be able to play either.

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!

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!
