May 2017 Update

Damn, it’s been a full months since my last update. There’s a really good reason for that – I’ve been on vacation for half that time, and in that time I haven’t kept up with any of my habits.

  • This one’s my favorite:

It’s a surprise robot toy. The surprise is, when you open the helmet, a dinosaur appears. I love the anachronistic nature of this one. The dinosaur’s probably roaring because of its impending¬†existential crisis.

  • I love this guy’s idea of stealth:

  • These last two are presented without comment.
