1997, Japanese machine shop owner Hitoshi Takahashi started building this 17-ton robot. Two diesel engines allow the machine to walk at a brisk 2.5 MPH, which is just fast enough to walk straight into my mecha-loving heart.

Redditor GatorMacheteJr loves Fallout more than you do.  Don't feel threatened, dude loves Fallout more than any of us.  This brave vault dweller collected a grand total of 2,240 bottle caps (around 11 lbs) over the last seven and a half years, and then had the stones to send those to Bethesda as payment for a Fallout 4 pre-order. 



His gamble (and very expensive shipping bill) paid off, because he's receiving a copy of the game.  According to an email he got from Bethesda, since he was the first person to try this method of payment, they'd honor it (read: don't get any ideas, rest of the internet!).  Well done, sir!

Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).

20 Cosplay Getup's That Had Us Beside Ourselves With Joy and Appreciation

It's no easy business assembling the kind of cosplay getup that pays proper homage to your favorite video game/superhero/anime character, etc without looking plain old ridiculous...but every now and again someone goes above and beyond, and pretty much ends up looking like, let's say Geralt of Rivia, walked off the damn screen.

Screenshot of the best Craigslist post ever of a guy who is trying to honestly sell his Koala with excellent description of the experience. Once he is in water he is fine getting him into the water is the challenge he will scratch you, he will bite you and you will bleed
