  • Assemble-It-Yourself 'Zombie Proof' Log Cabins For Sale

    Assemble-It-Yourself 'Zombie Proof' Log Cabins For Sale
    zombie-log-cabin-1.jpg This is Tiger Log Cabin's 70,000 (~$113,000) Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1). That cost is just for the materials though, you have to assemble it yourself though or pay another 13,000 (~$21,000) for them to come do it for you. I suggest letting them do it though. You try putting it together yourself and that shit's probably gonna get stormed by zombies easier than the little pig that built his house out of cereal boxes.
    The ZFC-1 comprises of three sections, all of which are independent from each other with two lockable doors securing each building. This means for a zombie to breach the main large section they would have to somehow breach three very securely locked doors - which even your most advance lock picker would struggle to compromise. One of the smaller buildings is a garage with secure roller shutter doors - still large enough to secure a military vehicle or getaway car. The other building comes with a built in storage unit for food to help you last the duration of the apocalypse. There is also a great place to store any other weapons you require to keep the undead at bay. The third larger building at the back has two floors (containing a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room and even a gym) as well as an upper deck to give you a 360 degree vantage point with smart slots in the decking wall to allow you to shoot at intruders in the surrounding area. In the middle of the three buildings protected by walls around the outside and a mesh roof is a small garden to allow you some outdoor time and to plant and grow vegetables.
    You know what the major flaw with this thing is? Actually, a couple things: 1) there are windows to break if zombies manage to infiltrate the garden, and windows are easier to break than walls. 2) there are doors. Zombies might not be that smart, but they do recognize something that looks different. Doors should blend in with the rest of exterior. 3) It's wood. Wood is flammable. It would only take one flaming zombie to come knocking to ruin your whole day. And trust me, zombies do catch fire -- I've killed enough in video games to know that. Speaking of, what percentage of people do you think have absolutely zero concept of zombie preparedness minus what they've picked up from video games and movies? My guess is at LEAST 85%. Those people aren't going to last long. Check it: you and a small group of survivors are running from a horde of zombies, what do you do? "Blow another survivor's leg off and leave them to the zombies to buy yourself enough time to escape." Exactly. You know, you might just survive a while after all. Just not in my group, because I don't want anybody else trying to use my own survival tactics against me. Keep going for a bunch more shots.
  • Moving: Ziplining A Couch Out Of A 3rd Story Apartment

    Moving: Ziplining A Couch Out Of A 3rd Story Apartment
    couch-zipline.jpg PROTIP: Turn the volume down, commentary is entirely not worth it. This is a portrait mode video (I give up) of a couple geniuses ziplining (technically not a zipline but whatever) a couch off the balcony of a 3rd story apartment so they don't have to carry it down the stairs. The video is called 'red neck couch moving', but this definitely not how rednecks move. I lived in Alabama for 10 years, rednecks move by backing their truck up to the trailer and towing it somewhere else. Me? I move the same way I always do: burning the entire apartment building to the ground and starting fresh. Keep going for the video, then just throw your couch over the balcony when its time to move.
  • Labor Of Love: Guy Spends Two Years Building Final Fantasy VII's Midgar In Minecraft

    Labor Of Love: Guy Spends Two Years Building Final Fantasy VII's Midgar In Minecraft
    final-fantasy-minecraft-1.jpg Minecrafter Killerx20 has spent the last two years recreating Final Fantasy VII's Midgar in the world of Minecraft. This is that (links to forum where you can download the map). Creating a video game inside a video game, that's deep. Maybe not as deep as my soul, but my soul i a bottomless well. One with lots of complex feelings and emotions swirling around the dark waters at the bottom. "I don't think you understand what bottomless means." You ruin everything for me.
    "As a lot are probably wondering," Killerx20 writes, "yes, more then 85% of this build WAS indeed hand placed. The only things that were not are the outer plates, tower, and reactors BUT that doesn't mean they were completed when imported, they were basically detail-less empty shells and I wanted it that way so everything on/inside them had to be hand placed for optimal detail."
    Now that, that's a serious labor of love. But do you know what the biggest labor of love is? Having a baby. Just kidding, it's making a table or chair out of wood with your own two hands. If anybody makes you furniture, you hold on to that person. If anybody makes you leave the bedroom to fart while you're pillow-talking before bed, well, that one can go either way. Keep going for several more pictures.
  • Family Builds Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet Out Of LEGO

    Family Builds Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet Out Of LEGO
    lego-wonder-woman-invisible-jet-build.jpg This is a short pictorial of father John Wray and his children building a fictional LEGO set of Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet. Pretty cute, right? It's cool, I'm man enough to be able to admit when things are cute. I like kittens, I like baby animals. I even like those little Precious Moments figurines. I mean, I don't COLLECT them, I can just appreciate how cute they are and how amazing a bunch of them lined up on my mantle would look. "Let me see your apartment." What? No. It's, uh, it's being fumigated. Thanks to TBTMH, who agrees invisibility would definitely be a sweet superpower provided you can turn it on and off and not just constantly get ignored at restaurants.
  • Fill The Oceans With Concrete: Squids Attacks Submarine

    Fill The Oceans With Concrete: Squids Attacks Submarine
    This is a short Vine video released by Greenpeace of a couple squids attacking one of their submarines in the Bering Sea between Russia and Alaska. I'm not even sure what the hell I'm watching, but I guarantee you that evil sea-witch Ursula is behind it. Now raise your hand if, at any time during the 'The Little Mermaid', you thought about what Ursula would taste like. Now look around the room. Everybody with their hand up needs help. Especially the guy with both hands up yelling, "I thought the same thing about Ariel!" Thanks to me, for being man enough to admit the oceans are so terrifying I'm starting to not even feel safe on dry land anymore.
