The Things That Are Awesome Thread

This thread is for general things that are, indisputably, awesome.

I open the bidding with these awesome Star Wars bookends.



And this awesome case mod.



Feel free to contribute further awesomeness to this thread.

I like the case! It looks like a personal computer would in a sixties TV show -had they had the fantasy to imagine personal computers back then...

The PC is well out of my price range and my level of PC building ability. As for the bookends, I'm tempted!

I also offer this third example of awesome. Video game inspired art.

I thought Lego Star Wars Storm Troopers were pretty awesome:

While the computer case is nicely designed, it's not something I'd want. I mean, can you imagine dusting that thing? All the little gaps and ledges.

Awesome does not exactly equal practical. Me, for example. I'm useless.

There's a couple of really awesome places I was just at, and in about a month I will be at again. Right here and here.

Not really an item per se, but this event was particularly memorable for its awesomeness as well as its comedy value:

Other awesome things of note (also for comedy value) include my family dog (see photo album for details).

I'm not saying it can't be. I'm just saying it is not inherently awesome.
