Matt Smith and Karen Gillan have been making more appearances on the convention circuit, and you never know what you’ll see happen during their photo ops. At Wizard World’s Louisville Comic Con last month, a couple walked up to Smith and Gillan and the guy promptly dropped onto one knee and proposed. The newly minted fiancée and Gillan look incredibly surprised while Smith is just gleeful. It’s absolutely adorable.

Add some warm and fuzzy to your day and check out the short video of the big moment after the break.

It’s something special when a guy can use the most mundane of everyday objects to effectively explain something as complex as fluid dynamics. That’s exactly what Destin does in his Smarter Every Day series, and in this video he uses a minivan, a balloon, and his adorable kids in his demonstration.

It seems like a simple question. Which direction will the balloon tethered to the floor of the minivan move when Destin accelerates? You likely have an answer in your head and that answer is likely wrong. Watch as Destin explains the science behind it all in the video after the break…

bean bag throne 1

Want to bring a little taste of King’s Landing into your home? Nerd by Night has come up with a way to turn the Iron Throne into the most epic bean bag chair ever. You’ll have to put in time and effort to create this throne and steps include painting the fabric, sewing it into place, and stuffing it with foam and bean bag beans. But at the end of the day, all the sweat and tears are going to be completely worth it.

See the chair in use after the break.

real bmo

An Adventure Time fan by the name of Bob H built this BMO and, I’m going to just say upfront that you can’t break into his house for it.

But you can learn how he built it so you can make one of your very own. You will probably want to get on that right away after you watch the following video and see it sing, see all the animations, or the facial expressions or DAMNIT BOB, NOW I WANT ONE!

time is a flat circus

One of the great things about Tumblr is that it gives gifts you never knew you needed or wanted until you’re presented with them. In this case, it’s a new Tumblr called Time Is A Flat Circus which I happily stamp with the “True Detective 2″ meme and present to you.

See what I’m talking about after the break.

New York-based artist and illustrator Sam Spratt usually focuses much of his artistic talent developing art pieces for his various clients (who range from National Geographic Channel to Donald Glover), but he recently shifted his attention over towards GoT and created a beautiful illustration of everyone’s favorite Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen.

disney firefly 1

Once Joss Whedon signed on to work with Marvel with films, I couldn’t help but let my mind wander to a happy place that involved a merging of Firefly and Disney. It could never actually happen since Firefly is a touch violent and has, you know, prostitutes—but a girl can dream.

Artist Stephen Byrne apparently had similar thoughts when he created this precious art featuring the crew of Serenity drawn in Disney animated movie style. The little River Tam is my favorite.

See some close-ups from the illustration after the break.

These incredible Titanfall weapon replicas are the work of Nick Brick. There’s a EVA-8 Shotgun, Smart Pistol MK5, and R-101C Carbine and each is life-sized. He made the pistol and rifle months before the game came out so they’re not exact replicas, but they’re still darned amazing. He’s even got videos showing how each works.

iron throne made from toys

You know what Westeros? Keep your Iron Throne with thousands of pointy swords; I’d rather have this striking version made from toys. The creative folks at Happy Garaje are huge fans of Game of Thrones and were inspired by the series to create their own version of the monstrous chair. Instead of using weapons, they forged the seat from toy soldiers, teddy bears, action figures, toy cars, LEGO bricks, and more. You can see them take shape as you get closer and closer to the throne, and it’s stunning.

Check out more photos of this incredible piece after the break.
