from the article: I'm debating whether or not I have the skill and time to finish a paint-scheme.

Waiting for him to make Barbie/calamari leftovers into tentacle pr0n.

check out the pimp my cup article, much more enjoyable.

html skills suck

Mother of Heaven, it has begun. If this guy can do it, then soon all over the world, people will begin putting together crappy, smelly war machines. Small skirmishes will break out in rural areas between police and growing bands of mech warriors. These gangs will fight each other until they unify under a few capable regional leaders in the enormous garbage dumps of metropoliton areas. With more and more resources at their disposal, the mechs will grow larger and larger until they are knocking down buildings and fighting Godzilla.

After, that it's only a matter of time before some lunatic with a gang of super powered mercinaries attach cruise missles to the largest of the mechs. Aster the government only sends in only one man to put a stop to the threat and he is killed due to poor camera control, nuclear powers the world over launch missles. ICBMs cloud the sky and every city you've ever been in is destroyed.

The survivors flee to space or stay to fight the zombies or the vampires or the nomads. Then the CHUDS come out.

Oh, yeah, the mech is cool and all...

Poor mans Gundam kits I guess.

Course my theory has always been that large mechs are just like large cars. Nerds compensating for something.
2005-08-27 09:40:06 PM  
If I say that this is actually pretty cool, do I risk never getting laid by the mostly male, mostly geek, mostly overweight Fark population?
2005-08-27 09:41:34 PM  
I thought it was cool...

...but then i'm very, very drunk
2005-08-27 09:44:50 PM  
Did anyone else read the headline as "Guy creates METH entirely out of garbage, proving once again that one man's trash is still pretty much just garbage"?
2005-08-27 09:47:40 PM  
Good lord, Americans are fat.
2005-08-27 09:50:20 PM  
This is both cool and pathetic at the same time. I'm torn.
2005-08-27 09:53:00 PM  

If you are male, then does your question imply that you are gay?

If you are female, than does your question mean you are worried about the mostly male overweight geeks not having sex with you? Cuz I can assure you, that if you are female then any geek and for that matter most guys would want to have sex with you.
2005-08-27 09:53:15 PM  
Not impressed. The BBC made about 25 seasons of Doctor Who that way.
2005-08-27 09:54:35 PM  
Wow...just wow.

Prince of Cosmos unavailable
2005-08-27 10:21:09 PM  

Sorry, I won't have sex with you.

And I am also male.

/sarcasm continues its slow death
2005-08-27 10:21:51 PM  
What kind of pose was that?
2005-08-27 10:25:15 PM  
Did anybody else thing of forty year old virgin when they saw that link?
2005-08-27 10:38:38 PM I hope this 35 year old guy's mom knows that he's using aerosol paint in her basement.

Could we all chip in a dollar to get this guy a prostitute?
2005-08-27 11:02:21 PM  
Could'a swore that said "Guy creates meth entirely out of garbage"
/ methheads without jobs line up to read article

Good, I thought I was the only one who read it that way.
2005-08-27 11:41:52 PM  
what a douche
2005-08-27 11:46:56 PM  
I read it as METH as well.
2005-08-27 11:49:28 PM  
not impressed
[image from too old to be available]
2005-08-27 11:58:25 PM  
I read it as meth too, lol
2005-08-28 12:09:46 AM  
That's pretty sharp -- takes a good eye to take random bits and assemble them into something like that.

/"I'd show you how I do it, but it'd only spoil the trick."
2005-08-28 12:36:23 AM  
Very cool. I was expecting more duct tape.
2005-08-28 12:37:16 AM  
Note the sharp knees.

/no... really
2005-08-28 12:47:01 AM  
i like it.

If memory serves me correctly, Bobo Bot on Tranzor Z was built from garbage.
2005-08-28 01:44:55 AM  
very cool.

anyone in this thread that says otherwise is just trying to be a dick.
2005-08-28 02:04:59 AM  
link is farked.

anyone got a mirror?
2005-08-28 02:23:50 AM  
karmasore: very cool.

anyone in this thread that says otherwise is just trying to be a dick.

They probably think its knees are too sharp...
2005-08-28 02:45:18 AM  
Bobo Bot? Tranzor Z. Bad dubbie! *hits Chibisuke on the head with a rolled-up newspaper*

Bos(s)borot! Mazinger Z!

And that was the first thing I thought of, too. >>;
2005-08-28 02:47:06 AM  
I would not hit it. It is way below my standards. Those knees are too sharp.
2005-08-28 02:55:18 AM  
Cyber_Junk: They probably think its knees are too sharp...

Well, its knees are made out of disposable razors.
2005-08-28 02:57:18 AM  
That's actually pretty ingenious. "Kit bashing" to its logical conclusion.
2005-08-28 03:50:09 AM  
nowhere near as cool as items from the bolt gallery
2005-08-28 04:25:25 AM  
This Giant Mecha is still for sale, last time I checked. And it's not made from garbage.

Shipping from Alaska is a bit spendy, however.

imagination + ingenuity + dedication + fascination with technology + appreciation for fiction
virgin + living in mom's basement

ignorance + conformity + laziness + obsession with sex + obsession with money
exhaustion from mindless 9 to 5 job to pay bills to show off for the ladies
cool and "having a life"

average mathematics scale scores of fourth-grade U.S. students == 12th in world
average science scale scores of fourth-grade U.S. students == 6th in world
U.S. teen pregnancy rate == 2*(any other industrialized nation's teen pregnancy rate)
United States poverty == 11.9% of population


Just wanted to make sure my math was right -- I'll be sure to get right back on that "getting a life" project...

// And what have YOU done today, hmmm? ;P
2005-08-28 10:32:05 AM  
this is farking wicked.

wow. i feel inspired to hit some dumpsters now.
2005-08-28 11:31:39 AM  
Hahahah, awesome!
Hey guys, that's my article right there. I wonder who submitted the link. Anyway thanks a lot for the attention and traffic (and support?). I'm actually surprised at how positive everyone's comments are - thanks a lot!

For those "40year old virgin" comments, that's completely expected but the fact of the matter is that I'm 24 years old, happily married, and enjoy a fantastic sex life. Heh.

I also love whisky and gin and enjoy donations of either.

Check out the rest of the site for more examples of my nerding it up.

And once again, thanks to whomever submitted the link to fark! The site's not farked, but my host was having a bit of service trouble. Everything seems to be fine now. Hopefully my 40gigs of monthly bandwidth will withstand both Fark and Collegehumor traffic!


....also about that pimp cup (pops) article, I just had it featured in the current issue of FHM.
2005-08-28 12:16:15 PM  
He made Tranzor Z?

How about a Tesla Coil made from junk:

That's cool. Great way to recycle all those non-biodegradables.
