120-sided-die-e1462137031792When French-Belgian mathematician Eugéne Catalan came up with the concept of the disdyakis triacontahedron or 120-sided die over 150 years ago, it was, in theory, the most mathematically fair die possible.

Catalan’s theory has become a reality thanks to the talents and efforts of Robert Fathauer, Robert Bosch, and Henry Segerman who have created the first actual D120. Luckily for dice fans, they’ve started The Dice Lab to make it available.

They also made a video about the D120 and the mathematical magic behind it, which you can watch on Nerd Approved

Here’s one for my wine loving geeks (and I know you’re out there!). Check out this Harley Quinn Mallet Corkscrew And Wine Charm Set.

I mean, think about it, Harley would probably be down with using her mallet to open a bottle of wine. Plus, a wine charm makes sure you know which glass is yours—just in case you want to, I dunno, poison someone? Not really, but you know what I mean.

knightmage-afro-samurai-topCosplayer Michael Wilson aka Knightmage has put together an Afro Samurai cosplay that makes me think we need a lot more Afro Samurai cosplay in our lives.

I love the hair and I’m kind of fascinated with the headband. I wish I could walk around looking like the wind was constantly blowing around me.

One of the best things in the recent Lootcrate Firefly Crate was a little 4-pack of paper drink umbrellas based on Kaylee’s parasol. I didn’t want to use them because I only had four, but QMx has solved that problem.

They’ve released the new Kaylee Parasol drink umbrellas in packs of 30, so you can have a Firefly shindig and make sure everyone gets one.

How shiny is that?

On February 23rd, undercover agents from the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control went to see Deadpool at the Brewvies theater and bought beer. Now Brewvie’s is facing fines and the potential loss of their liquor license because of a Utah obscenity law prohibiting the sale of alcohol in the same place where nudity or sex acts can be viewed.

Apparently, an R-rated movie qualifies. I mean, c’mon.

Brewvies has decided to fight back, declaring that the law itself is unconstitutional. In order to fund the legal action, they’ve set up a Go Fund Me page to cover the cost of legal fees and fines.

Ryan Reynolds heard about Brewvie’s plight and it appears that he may have donated to the cause himself. He also had something to say about it.

maisie-williams-prankWhile Game Of Thrones is known for being generally SERIOUS, the actors are really funny and likeable any time you see them out of character.

If you follow Maisie Williams on social media, you know just how much fun she is. Thanks to HBO, Maisie got the chance to delight and humiliate some unsuspecting fans at Aero Hobbies & Games in Santa Monica, California.

It’s pretty wonderful. Check out the video on Nerd Approved

Instead of Kaylee in her coveralls with an adorable teddy bear patch, this is a teddy bear in coveralls with an adorable Kaylee patch—which is so cute that I added in a couple pictures of it specifically because KAWAII!
