Want: Never Ending Slinky

Every true geek wants just a few simply things in life, a decent bookshelf, a nice computer, and a perpetual motion machine to power the world and impress their friends. This doesn’t qualify as any of those but it is closets to the last so I’m going to tentatively put it in that category.  We …

Impressed: A Man and His Swords, and Things

This is swordsmith and armorer Michael the Elder God with one of his many swords. He’s kind of like that Tony Swatton guy in the sense that I idolize him for his manliness. In his own words he makes “swords and things.” So I just want you to take a moment and bask in the …

Want: Burger with 17 Kinds of Beef

“I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is more cow…” Quick, what’s on a Big Mac? That’s what I thought. No one can answer that question anymore. Go ask your mothers to tell you what’s on a Big Mac. I guarantee they’ll know. They’ll probably even sing you the answer. This isn’t a Big …

Would Eat: Spam Filled Doughnuts

Unlike most Americans spam doesn’t frighten me. I don’t eat it often but when I do I’m rarely disappointed. For that reason I was happy to see these spam-filled doughnuts. Not only are they doughnuts filled with spam, they are also deep-fried. And that’s just great. John Clarkson, owner of Mister Eaters fish and chips …

Want: New Coca Cola Bottle Lids Give Old Bottles a New Life

Coca Cola has released a group of 16 different cap adapters to transform old empty bottles into something useful again. I have to say, I love it. It’s great when garbage that we all know isn’t going to be recycled is given new life. Here’s some of the new adapters: A paintbrush, pencil sharpener, bubble-blower, …

Want: Laser-Guided Tactical Neck Tie

Still can’t think of what to get dad for Father’s Day? How about a laser-guided tactical neck tie? He’ll love it. He may even put you back in the will, but I’m not making any promises after what you did. It’s a good thing he didn’t just beat you to death right then and there. …
