Trivial Pursuits

Some people say I'm contrary. I disagree.

This awesome mechanized Xenomorph costume was created by professional cosplayer Peter Kokis using an impressive variety of everyday objects such as knife sharpeners, toilet plungers, drain mats, and conduit tubing. He spent 16 months simply gathering all of the parts he needed and then about 400 hours assembling the suit. The fearsome costume weighs 120 pounds and has been dubbed the “Brooklyn Alien.”

Since the Geyser of Awesome team is at Emerald City Comicon today, we thought it was appropriate to make it Notably Nerdy Day!

In a delightfully nerdy effort to stand out from the competition, an enterprising Redditor named Pastlightspeed (aka Leah) created this awesome LEGO-themed resume consisting of a minifig version of herself wearing her interview suit, a set of custom instructions highlighting her skills and beautifully designed packaging tailored to match the branding and colors for each agency to which she applied. For an agency that specifically requested a ‘persuasive advertisement’, she also created a fantastic 11x17 poster advertising both her minifig and her skills.

"I wanted a fun way to stand out to agencies and get my resume out of the trash can — I’ve always loved LEGO and I created this set to highlight my creativity, skills and initiative! It’s something I hope to be able to send out along with a job application."

We have to agree with Redditor ThisIsTheNameIHaveToType, who reacted to Leah’s employment-seeking efforts by saying, “You win. Nobody else can apply for the job. You get all the jobs.”

This woman seems unsure where to look as Triple H and Daniel Bryan share a tender moment.

Sad, and kinda touching.

I didn’t realize that Titus was in White Chicks.
