If you saw this picture and got super excited about being able to buy these guys, I hate to disappoint, but they aren't for sale. These amazingly intricate Minifigs were actually custom created by LEGO fan Julian Fong. It took him over a year to paint the whole set, so if you want to follow in his steps to make your own, you'd better get started.

If you thought superhero weddings are generally too casual, here are some classy, stunning gold and black wedding ideas all based on having an elegant Batman wedding. These are just ideas, not an actual wedding, but it would be great to see someone actually take this nugget of an idea and run with it.
We've all seen plenty of modern LOL cats, but these bulldogs dressed up in formal wear are an awesomely old-school version of the meme we're all accustomed to.
When Geeks Wed usually focuses on wedding topics, but every now and then, they have generally awesome geek fashions like these sweet Dark Knight nails. There are even more cool Batman nail designs over at the link.
While a few of the flavors on this list actually sound alright although they are still certainly unique (avocado shakes are surprisingly heavenly) all I can think of when I see these buffalo wing shakes is "DO NOT WANT."
It might not seem like the most efficient use of money, but you have no idea how badly we need one of these in the Neatorama office. Alex and Zeon are always harassing John and me to make them pancakes at least once a day. It's amazing we are ever able to find time to actually write. Of course, there's no relief in sight for Miss C and Tiffany, who are our go-to bacon and scrambled egg chefs.
Fans of Seinfeld certainly remember The Soup Nazi and while he was always just an imaginary character, the actor who played The Soup Nazi is now going on tour with his own "No Soup for You" food truck. Wondering what he might actually offer hungry diners? Well, the menu includes show favorites such as “mulligatawny soup, Junior Mints, muffin tops, black and white cookies, Twix and Snapple.”

I always thought that Netflix's movies were categorized by the movie studios when they submit them, but as it turns out, there is an actual job where people get paid to watch movies and classify them. You can read more about the job over at the link, but personally, all I want to know is how I get a job as a movie tagger.

If you aren't already pumped up about the Olympics and need to be reminded of some of the amazing things that happen at the games, then you'll definitely appreciate this collection of touching stories. My personal favorite:
At the 1936 Berlin Games, Japanese pole vaulters Shuhei Nishida and Sueo Oe tied for second place. The teammates were offered the opportunity to have a jump-off for the silver medal, but the two friends declined out of mutual respect for one another. For the purposes of Olympic records, Oe agreed to the bronze while Nishida took the silver.
Upon their return to Japan, the teammates came up with a different solution. The pair had a jeweler cut their medals in half and fuse them back together, creating half-silver, half-bronze pendants. The “Medals of Friendship,” as they’re now known in Japan, are enduring symbols of friendship and teamwork.
It's hard not to get excited about the games after reading these fantastic tales.
