Transformer Man

You really need to check out Neogentronyx.  I'm a bit too old to have played with Transformers as a kid, but this guy apparently did.  And it would seem that he never outgrew them.  This whole project is obviously the culmination of years of childhood daydreaming.  Actually I'm glad that this guy has "way too much time" to work on this, because I don't.  But I'd love to have one of these!  ;)

Search Engine Belt Buckle

From a purely technical standpoint, this is really cool.  But they crossed the "Way Too Much Time" line when they opted to make it into a belt buckle.  Dorks.

Project ICECE

If you've been thinking about putting a SUN E450 in your car to operate as an MP3 player, you might want to check out Project ICECE.  You should have no trouble swapping notes, because it's obvious you both have way too much time on your hands!

Mapping Springfield

Not Illinois or Massachusetts, but as in the Simpsons!  I can't imagine the amount of time that went into making this "Guide to Springfield USA".  Really cool stuff if you're a fan.  But in reality a likely colossal waste of time!  I'm just guessing, but it might benefit the guys who did this to read this and then head outside for a long, long walk or some other physical activity.

Another example of living vicariously through movies.  (A previous example can be found here.)  This time it's Ghostbusters.  A good movie, but this is about one fan-dork's desire to be a Ghostbuster for Halloween.  Okay, so you find a jumpsuit, strap on a cardboard box with a vacuum hose duct taped to it.  Alright, let's start drinking!  But, noooooo that's not good enough for fan-dork.  His costume has to be authentic!  And if you now want to be authentic next Halloween, you can buy his and save yourself some time at the expense of a lot of cash.

Pac-Man Live

What happens when you take a classic video game and cross it with the idle time of your average college student?  Why Pac Manhattan of course!  Oh, it gets better…it's part of a graduate course at NYU!  Ah, the pointless life of a liberal arts major.

TRON Geeks

I'll admit that I've seen the movie TRON several times.  A major film it's not, but there have been a lot worse movies that this one.  And maybe you can become obsessed with it…learning bits of the dialog, occasionally acting out a brief bit.  But some people have clearly gone over the edge.  You can find more of this freak show via Google.  It's time to go out and get some fresh air boys!

Giant Paint Ball

Good grief Charlie Brown!  This guy needs to get out more.  Mike Carmichael is his name, and obviously about 26.9 years ago he inhaled way too many paint fumes.  Dear God, why have you not purged these types from among us?
