I haven’t seen the inside of the gym in years, but if we had a gym around here where people would work out like this, I would definitely sign up!  Apparently this woman decided it would be best to do her stretches in a bikini, Darth Vader mask, high heeled shoes and with a lightsaber.  This is almost inspiring enough to make me want to get off my chair and work out right now!  Almost.  Remember, a geek at rest tends to stay at rest and if there is one thing I enjoy, its resting!  This picture was taken by modelxing (my new hero).

I usually make an effort to stay out political discussions whenever possible because I consider it to be a giant scam and show business for ugly people anyway.  Other than maybe Ron Paul, I can’t say there are any political candidates for this presidential election that I even care for.  Well, it seems I’m not the only one because some Star Wars fan is proposing that Obi-Wan Kenobi is our only hope for 2012.  While I’m not sure he is the best person for the job, he couldn’t be any worse than the nut jobs we have running for President now.

By now, I would assume that most everybody is familiar with not only Star Wars, but the original Legend of Zelda game on the NES as well.  Or at least they are familiar enough to understand the take this meme.  As you may recall from the Legend of Zelda, Link is told it is dangerous to go it alone so he should take this sword given to him by an old man.  Well, some Star Wars fan decided to adopt that idea and translate it to Han Solo and Chewbacca.  The result is that rather than going alone, you should take a wookie with you!

Despite the tiny 1.44MB of storage on the floppy drives of yesteryear, I have to admit that I kind of miss those big things.  I miss the sound of a noisy floppy drive and being able to snap that little metal door back and forth when I was bored.  However, if there is one thing I don’t miss, its the number of them that you had to have for things like Windows 95.  Speaking of large numbers of floppy drives, this picture gives your a good idea of just how far we have come with making storage smaller since 1995.  Here is a picture of 8GB worth of floppy disks (looks like less to me) and one tiny 8GB Micro-SD card today.  Wow.

When it comes to gaming on my mobile device (mainly on my iPod Touch since my Motorola i1 Android phone is garbage to put it nicely), I have never thought to myself that it would be a better experience if I could put the mobile device on a gun and play my games.  However, thinking about it, it seems like an interesting idea!  Well, that is exactly what the folks over at Metal Compass have done with this Xappr Gun (which works on Apple, Android and Windows phones) and thanks to deniath, you can get your hands on one cheaper than anywhere else!  Although it is only available for pre-order at this time, it retails for $34.99 but with deniath, you have the chance to get it for just $24.99 (shipping is $15 since it is coming from overseas)!  Similar to sites like Groupon, for this deal to happen, at least 50 people have to use Deniath to pre-order this interesting little accessory. This private pre-sale begins March 12th so you have a couple days to save up your pocket change to pre-order the Xapper (pictured below)!

However, to take advantage of this deal or any other deal that they offer, you must be a member of their exclusive site!  Becoming a member of Deniath is free, but if you want to skip the line and get in now so you can take advantage of this Xappr deal and others, send an email to community@deniath.com with Global Geek News in the subject.  This invite offer only lasts until March 16th, so fire up your e-mail client before its too late!

One last thing, be careful traveling with this as I would seriously doubt that the TSA goons will have any idea what this is and will suspect it to be an actual gun.

Although I have a tremendous appreciation for music, I can’t say I have any musical talent.  I could peck out a couple songs on the piano when I was a kid like Jingle Bells, but that was about the extent of my musical career.  However, if I ever decided to try my hand at becoming a real musician, I would probably want to use a custom instrument like this guitar that looks like the TARDIS from Doctor Who.  It may not be as intricate as the Millennium Falcon guitars I have posted in the past (like this one or this one) but I don’t think I would want anything as fancy as those.
