I DO!!! Romantically Geeky Battlestar Galactica Cylon Engagement Ring

When DisturbedRobot met his girlfriend at a Battlestar Galactica party, he knew he had to put a ring on it. So he came up with the idea of making a ring that looks like a Cylon and aimed for the stars.

Perfectly done.

Fill it with Booze!!! R2D2 Unit That Dispenses Drinks

Check this out. It is a R2 unit that has a been loaded with electronic Super Soaker parts and filled with blue gatorade. What is the BEST part about this, is that it looks like our little android pal is taking a pee right into your cup. Spell it out loud "I CUP". Works every time.

"After spraying it white and masking off the entire thing with blue painter’s tape, the shapes for the blue designs were cut out and painted. Half of a foam sphere from the hobby shop was used to form the dome."

The Green Lantern Girl Would Make Any Geek Want to Propose

Wait... she KNOWS?! This girl knows how to get to any man's heart, as long as that man is a comic book and star wars geek. All n all, a pretty clever commercial for this site that wants you to love your lady (or your man) for the relaxed person that they are. Also that they are cool with you living off of doritos and energy drinks while hiding in the basement every night rolling dice with your warlock pals.

Let the force come and guide you into buying a ring for your destiny.

LEGO... one of man's greatest inventions. Nathan Sawaya, from The Art of the Brick, decided to get a tattoo on his precious LEGO art building thumb of a LEGO brick. Everyone at the LEGO headquarters just cheered, laughed, cried and possibly shat bricks... LEGO bricks.
