I think it is safe to assume that at some point, all of our parents told us not to play with our food.  However, I’m not a big fan of that idea as I think it stifles a kids creativity and inner scientist.  Not to mention, if you play with your food, you can get things like this awesome 8-bit Mario and Link make out of Skittles!

Yesterday morning, I was hanging out on twitter looking for the latest news from the Waldo Canyon fire which is burning around 50 miles north of me when I stumbled across a tweet with this awesome picture of an 8-bit Link and an 8-bit Mario that had been made out of Skittles candy.  The tweet came from @raidz3ro although I’m not sure if they made these or somebody else. Whoever made them, they are awesome!

Ever since I lost about 5 inches of chain off of my Gears of War dog tags a week ago that I have worn around my neck for years, I have been looking for something to replace it with.  I am still wearing it, but I think the breaking of the chain was a sign for me to move on to something else.

Well, perhaps I should move on to this awesome Legend of Zelda Kokiri’ Forest emerald necklace!  Etsy seller dweebishdelights is selling this awesome Legend of Zelda Kokiri’ Forest emerald necklace for just $12.50.  Obviously, for that price, it is not a real emerald, but it is an emerald green rhinestone that looks close enough that I don’t think anybody will notice the difference.

Now I have to decide if I would rather wear this Legend of Zelda Kokiri’ Forest emerald necklace or the Diablo 3 necklace I posted about recently.  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments!

When it comes to lawn chairs or deck chairs or what have you, I have always been a big fan of those ones that you can fold up into a bag and take anywhere.  Especially when they have a footrest.  However, I would gladly exchange my fold-up chair for this amazing Stormtrooper helmet deck chair.

This amazing Star Wars inspired wooden Stormtrooper deck chair was created by gotWood workshops.  I might have to hit them up to make me one because I could really use at least one chair for my patio and I can’t think of a better chair to put out there!  Actually, I think I might prefer a Darth Vader chair but that is just because my inner dark side runs the place.

In the days of Snuggie blankets, I generally look down on any blankets/quilts that don’t have sleeves.  However, occasionally, one comes along that is so awesome that it doesn’t even matter that it does have sleeves and this Doctor Who quilt is one of them!

This amazing 92″ x 92″ Doctor Who quilt was made by graverobbergirl as a wedding present.  It took her two months worth of free time to create, but it was worth every minute of it!  I can’t help but hum the Doctor Who theme while looking at this quilt featuring a ton of Daleks surrounding the TARDIS.

If this is what married couples are getting as wedding gifts these days, maybe I will reconsider my general dislike of marriage.

Working for a towing company, I see a lot of semi trucks, but never have I encountered one as customized as this Legned of Zelda semi truck!  The customizations I see on trucks are usually small things on the interior like bobble heads and other trinkets on the dash.  However, it seems somebody has a little more pride in their truck to do something more with it!

This amazing Legend of Zelda semi truck is painted green and features the Hylian Crest on the back and the Triforce on the side.  Apparently it was spotted parked in a Walmart parking lot by redditor teslas_notepad.

I declare this the coolest and geekiest semi truck ever!  If you have seen something better, link me to some pictures in the comments below!

I’ve posted a couple of amazing Mario Kart cakes before such as this mind blowing Mario Kart wedding cake, but as far as a Mario Kart cake that is just focused on the carts goes, this cake is the ultimate Mario Kart cake!

The level of detail, shininess, and smoothness on the karts as well as Mario and Princess Peach is amazing!  These fantastic Mario Kart cakes were created by Divalicious Specialty Cakes / Q Cake Architects and I don’t think they could have done a better job if they had tried!  I don’t know what kind of occasion this cake was made for, but if somebody actually ate it, I frown upon those lucky people for eating one of the coolest looking cakes ever!  I’m just a little jealous.
