I only talk to myself when I'm tired.  Does that mean I'm smarter when I'm tired?

Just ask yourself, "Do you want my Styrofoam peanuts?"

The caption for this was something like,
 "my lizard killed a guy . . .  but he probably deserved it."

That... looks an awful lot like somebody re-made "The Creeping Terror".

Hopefully I'll remember in 2 months to order one of these, looks like a nice model.

I just REALLY want a full size BB-8 for Christmas that can roll around the house. What can I say? He's a cute little booger.

Wow... I don't think I could even begin to afford all the parts I'll need. Believe me though, if I had half the technical savvy and didn't have a serious bipolar disorder, I might have leaped at the chance to make one in a heart-beat. I guess you can't always get what you want, right Mick Jagger?

Do you know someone with some mechanical skills and the tools to help build it, the cost wouldn't be as much as you would think:

Not sure how much the batteries he uses are, but the arduino, motor controller, wifi card, and toy car motors add up to probably less than $50, I've made some projects at work using that stuff recently.  The cans of spray paint probably cost as much as the electronics.  Craft paint (thick acrylic in mini-shampoo bottles) would be cheaper.  The stuff to make the body and head probably only adds up to $15 maybe $20.  If no dead speaker magnets are available those would add $10 or so.  Probably $10 for the styrofoam ball for the head.

Prices for that size Li-ion battery vary a lot, $2 to $6 per cell, looks like he uses 12 of them.

So it could probably be done for less than $150.
