These are several shots of the two story AT-AT walker that Parma, Ohio man Nick Myer built in his front yard for Halloween. Some more info while I petition my neighborhood's home owner's association to let me use black magic to revive some real corpses for Halloween (they're sticklers):
Obviously, a giant AT-AT walker out in the neighborhood has gained some pretty intense foot traffic and visitors from all over Ohio. Many Star Wars fans have taken to social media to share their pilgrimage to the Hoth land, with some even getting into character, dressing as Imperial Stormtroopers and standing next to the mighty Imperial armored transporter from Episode V. Miraculously, Nick Myer's wife and neighbors fully approve of the AT-AT walker and don't seem to mind all of the attention that the Halloween display is gaining.
I think the most hilarious part about this whole thing is how Nick is pretending he did this just for Halloween, like he hasn't dreamed of having a giant AT-AT in his front yard all year round. And can you blame him? It's going to look even better around Christmas when there's snow on the ground. Then Halloween is only another 10 months away so you might as well leave it up. "You haven't taken your Christmas tree down yet, have you, GW?" Not since 2014, no.
Keep going for a couple more shots while I speculate if Nick goes the extra mile and hands out full-size candy bars.
This is a video of total stud Jim 'The Can Man' Anderson quickly crushing a long line of aluminum cans in front of the Pure Ice Company in Yankton, South Dakota (which looks like a great place to have a few cold one outside with your buddies) with what appears to be some sort of can-stomping dance he's developed. He's as graceful as a ballerina. *laying tux out on bed* Call me if you need a dancing partner, we could make a small fortune in recycling.
Keep going for the video while I go practice outside.
This is a short and sweet video of a baby hearing her mother's voice for the first time after receiving hearing aids to help combat her bilateral profound congenital hearing loss. It looks and sounds like they both get a little emotional. And, judging from all the sobbing I hear around me, I'm guessing so did everyone in the office I sent this to. You know, I still remember the first time I heard my mothers's voice. She was yelling at me from the bottom of the stairs to clean my room. "That was this morning." I have a bad memory.
These are the Fallout inspired tiki mugs created by Geeki Tiki and available as a four-piece set from ThinkGeek for $60. The set includes a deathclaw, suit of power armor, Vault Boy and Dogmeat (who looks a lot like Scooby-Doo). Still, I'm more than a little disappointed there isn't a Yes Man from Fallout: New Vegas or a super mutant, but what are you gonna do? "Write an angry email." Exactly. So far I've got 'Now listen here you jerks!'
Similar but completely different than this ATV sacrifice, this is a video of a guy riding his ATV on a mountain trail when he loses control and falls off. His ride then takes the opportunity to throw itself off a cliff. No word if it actually made it all the way down to the ocean, but at least in my mind it's living the life it's always dreamed of being a merman now. You do you, ATV.
These are the coin jigsaw puzzles carefully cut and crafted by the folks at Coin Cut Art from real coins. Those are some tiny puzzle pieces! Prices range from $15 - $225 depending on the coin used (you can even send your own), and, just like your ex-boyfriends penis, are probably best handled with tweezers. High-five!
This is the $290 (marked down from $350) American Master Plunger designed and crafted by the Re Made Company of New York City. It unclogs toilets after you try to flush too much toilet paper at once because suicide hot wings. Alternatively, use a regular $4 plunger. The plunger I use I actually bought from the 99¢ store and it works fine. That reminds me -- a friend of mine used to live in a house that had carpet in the downstairs bathroom and one time the toilet backed up and soaked the carpet with shit water and he called me to come over and help remedy the situation, which I did with a gallon of gasoline and a lighter.
Keep going for one more shot and a weird video while I speculate why anybody with the money to spend on a $290 plunger would ever plunge their own toilet anyways.
This is the tree stump that 42-year old Romanian wood sculptor Gabi Rizea cleverly carved into a bucket pouring water. Or maybe it's pouring paint, I can't really tell. Apparently Gabi was given permission by the local authorities to transform any stumps in local parks into works of art and, amazingly, hasn't sculpted a single penis yet. *shivers* The willpower that must have taken.
Keep going for a couple more shots of the process.
