I can’t say I have ever been much of a fish person, but I have seen a lot of amazing aquarium setups in my day.  However, this is the first time that I have ever seen an aquarium built to look like a video game.

Reddit user jennyleighb has a roommate that is apparently a big Super Mario Bros fan and used some LEGO bricks to turn their fish tank into a Super Mario Bros themed aquarium.  If you hit up the source link below, you can see a gallery of pictures that show the making of this awesome Super Mario Bros aquarium but this pictures below show off the fish tank in all of its glory.

For whatever reason, I have never really got into the the whole MechWarrior series of games, but apparently this cat has!

This cat, which I think I will call Grumpy  just based on the expression on its face, seems to enjoy laying on its awesome cardboard MechWarrior.  I don’t know who built this awesome MechWarrior out of cardboard but it is quite impressive!  I can’t even imagine how much work went into making that cardboard MechWarrior!  I hope this cat appreciates just how awesome their owner is!

I don’t do a lot of cooking, but if I had something like this awesome 8-bit Mario wooden cutting board, I would be much more likely to spend time in the kitchen!

Of course as with almost everything, there is good news and bad news about this epic 8-bit Mario cutting board.  The good news is that thanks to Etsy seller PrairieOakStudios, you can be the proud owner of this wooden Mario cutting board.  The bad news is that this 8-bit Mario wooden cutting board is going to set you back $110 if you decide you can’t live without it.

As absolutely amazing as this is and as much as I love Mario, I don’t think I can ever see me spending that kind of money on a cutting board.  If only I was rich…

If there is one thing I can’t seem to get enough of, it is cupcakes.  They tend to be both great to look at and delicious to eat!  Since I can’t tell how delicious they are based on the pictures, I would say that these LEGO Star Wars cupcakes at least fall into the first category.

This awesome LEGO Star Wars cupcake tower was made by Cake Central Member Andytibaby.  C-3PO, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Yoda are all featured on various cupcakes with an awesome R2-D2 at the top.  I can’t even imagine how much time it took to make all of the LEGO Star Wars minifigs, not to mention R2-D2 or the cupcakes themselves.  Definitely time well spent though!

With as obsessed as people seem to be about Diablo III right now, I figured it would be the perfect time to share these awesome Diablo III Mistress of Pain socks.

I have never played a Diablo game but with all the hype around Diablo 3, I think I am going to have to give the game a shot.  However, I don’t see myself becoming a big enough fan to buy these socks, no matter how awesome they are!

Well, for those that are huge Diablo 3 fans, you can order these awesome Diablo III Mistress of Pain socks from Jinx for $11.99.

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?
