Instructables
I made this Portal Turret egg cup using materials I had at home. These materials are also widely available at hobby shops. It may be easier to create the egg cup with other methods, such as welding, machine working, 3D printing, etc., but I used what I had at hand. Makes breakfast a little more science-y.

Oh, how we laughed and laughed.
Except I wasn't laughing.
Under the circumstances I've been shockingly nice!
Portal 2 ftw
You want your freedom? Take it.
That's what I'm counting on.

I used to want you dead but now I only want you gone

SHOULD TOTALLY BE DONE WITH THIS:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Egg-cakes/

portal turret egg filled with cake.
i want one.
Cant be done. The cake is a lie.
noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
glados promised not to lie
the cake is not a lie
the cake is not a lie
the cake is not a lie
THE cake is a lie. that SPECIFIC one.

and actually it isn't even a lie. the model is in the game, and you can get to it by glitching yourself out of the level. This video is completely mindblowing. all of the first game in 15 minutes, and then he gets the cake.

I've done that myself. It is amazing that someone actually found how to do that.
The cake is in the game anyway. No glitch needed. Even though it's been around for a while it'd still be a spoiler for anyone who hasn't played it.
yeah. the guy who did that speedrun spent HOURS and HOURS and HOURS figuring some of that out. like how he uses the turret to bounce himself higher so he doesn't need the companion cube. that one took him thousands of tries to get right, and then he only got through the level completely twice. so absurd. that playthrough isn't one take, btw. each test chamber is recorded separately. it would be IMPOSSIBLE to do on one take.
lol
nice...

I love this. I love this so much.
Now someone needs to make incendiary lemons. Shall I be first?
 
Would an exploding carrot do?
Ah well... it has to be Lemon.
St Jimmy Kaiven3 years ago
But don't make combustable lemonade. That would be counter-intuitive
When life gives you lemons, GET MAD!! GO TO LIFE'S HOUSE AND BLOW THEM UP WITH COMBUSTIBLE LEMONS!! YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, I'LL HAVE MY RESEARCHERS MAKE COMBUSTIBLE LEMONS, AND BLOW UP LIFE'S HOUSE!!

God, I love Portal 2.
Hahahaha
I haven't finished it yet (much less gotten to that part), who says that, was it Wheatley?
No. Play the game all the way through, and then find a friend or extra pair of thumbs and do the co-op. This game is friggin' epic
I'll play it with my brother. And it is EPIC! I love it! By the way, I take it you're not going to tell me who says that?
Erm, no. Either you're not up to there and you'd get confused, or it would ruin a hilarious point in the game
Okaay, I'll wait :)
Yeah! Take the lemons!
