Nerdy Moment of Awesome: Hand-Made Guinea Pig Armour

Yes. You heard those words correctly. That was not a typo.

There are some times you just have to throw your hands up and cheer on the insanity the internet era has brought forth.

Case in point: someone has hand-made a scale mail armour and helmet that is the perfect size for your Guinea Pig. You know, because you want to insure your Guinea Pig is the Boss Hog when the entire species take up arms against their human masters.

Whats more, the armour is up for sale on Ebay and bidding has reached $305. No really. Go check it out.

The seller notes:
“The chain mail is hand-made and is in great condition. The helmet was purchased and is also in great condition. Neither are “new””.

Well. Just…fuck me. Forget Fan Fiction Friday. This has finished me. I need a drink.

See you next week. That may just be long enough for me to bleach this colossal stupidity from my mind.

  1. Sorry you find it a colossal stupidity. Lucky didn’t like it that much, but I’m sure MGPR won’t think their donation check is a colossal stupidity.

    You guys are a nerd blog and you badmouth people’s strange and eccentric achievements? That’s colossally stupid in my book.

    • Hi Sean,
      I admit I did gloss over the charity element, but it didn’t fit the piece, which is mostly a humour one rather than anything serious. I’m sorry if you felt I offended you . Still, the piece is called nerdy moment of awesome, so the title is a clear indication of how I feel despite the snark.

      I don’t presume to speak for the everyone else as I’m only one author, but a lot of people who founded this blog are fans of a site called topless robot, which examines both the good and the slightly silly things in the geek world and , so the spirit has been carried over to some regard.

      I do stand by what I wrote, but I’m sorry if you took offense. Drop me a message if you want to chat further 🙂

    • Hi Sean,
      I admit I did gloss over the charity element, but it didn’t fit the piece, which is mostly a humour one rather than anything serious. I’m sorry if you felt I offended you . Still, the piece is called nerdy moment of awesome, so the title is a description of my true feelings on the topic, rather than the content itself, which is always slightly snarky.

      I don’t presume to speak for the everyone else as I’m only one author, but a lot of people who write here are fans of the Topless Robot site, which covers both the good and silly parts of our strange obsessions. I myself am a wargamer, so I take a lot of jokes in my stride as they are usually right :p !

      So, I do apologise for any offense caused and I’m happy to amend the post to include the charity part. But I still stand by it just being a fun piece.

  2. G’Day! Reecemjones,
    Thanks you for your post, If you can find me a seriously good anime, I will marry you!

    But seriously, I’m fed up with all these weak, indecisive, unlucky, nose bleeding, nerdy, small, too young main characters. For example, a really hot girl is trying to get off with the guy and he is either refusing her or dying from blood-loss due to a nose bleed.

    I want to find an anime that is a romance anime (plus any other genres) where the main character is ‘cool’. The character doesn’t even have to be overpowered, but calm and collected and funny/witty (the lead from A World Only God Knows). On the other hand, if the anime has action in it it would be better if the main char was OP.

    The anime must have 2003+ graphics!

    Basically the character must be:

    • Cool and/or badass
    • Overpowered and/or calm and collected and/or funny
    • Male (age 15+)
    • Optional: people are afraid of him or he has a dark f-ed up past

    If the anime has a moment when the guy shows off his power to people and their jaws drop that would be AMAZING

    Four perfect examples would be:

    • Kazuma from Kaze no Stigma (He is OP and has an ‘I don’t give a damn’ attitude)
    • Ousawa Akatsuki from Hagure Yuusha no Estetica (this is my fav anime atm, plus there are episodes to still come out. Check this anime out if you haven’t already, you won’t regret it! Anyway, this guy is the true definition of badass. Watch it to see what I mean.)
    • Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-sama (as far as plain romance anime go, this is my fav. Usui is perfect for the type of ‘slice of life’ anime like that)
    • Yuuki Oojima from Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate (he is funny and witty, gets a few girls, but he isn’t wimpy etc.)

    IF YOU CAN SUGGEST ANIME AS SIMILAR TO THOSE FOUR I JUST MENTIONED THAT WOULD BE AWESOME! and after we get married we can have a kid… er… anyway, I’ve seen a ton of anime, so you’re probably gonna suggest anime that I’ve seen (plus it would take me forever to make an anime list). If you can suggest more than one anime that’d be brilliant.

    I know these kinds of anime are hard to come by, so if you see me keep posting this question, I’m not stupid >.<

    And as always my friends… have nice day. 😀
    Wishes
