Dead animals on the walls are creepy, period. I can take them in a restaurant with a hunting theme, but that’s as far as my tolerance goes.
The only thing weirder than dead animal heads? Carboard animal heads. Take this Animal Friendly Carboard Moose Bust, for example. I guess it could double as an interesting toy, sort of like an oversized 3D puzzle, but… come on, would any sane person put it up on a wall? Yeah, it’s all sustainable, locally designed and produced, but… a cardboard moose head?!
Also available in the rhino and deer variety. Different animals, just as weird.
I’m a sucker for smart storage space. I would live in a house full of small boxes each for one thing if I could. Of course, everything would likely end up thrown on the floor, but that’s beside the point.
What drew me to the Picnic Time Lunch Tote was the cool pocket for the cutlery and napkin, of course. But that’s not all there is to it: it also has a harness to keep a bottle in place and, best of all, it’s insulated, so it will keep food at a pretty much constant temperature for a long while. Good news for people who can’t pack light, too: the tote has an expandable drawstring top to cover all the food and drinks you’ll stuff it with.
Coordinating a large number is difficult enough as it is, I can imagine that it get ten times as worse if they can’t hear you, so if you’re in that line of business you could carry a Mini Megaphone around and save yourself a lot of trouble. It’s not exactly small enough to fit in a pocket, but its size (5″L X 3¼”Dia) makes it slip inside a bag with no problems.
One of the other suggested uses is for sporting events… but please think of the people around you. Would you like a guy with a megaphone yelling in your ear? Didn’t think so. So only get this if you need it, most people don’t go to watch sports to end up with a headache.
Even if you’ve only had a cat for a few days, you know: it’s not your chair anymore, it’s the cat’s. It’s not your flower pot, it’s the cat’s toy. You’re only around to feed her and pat her – unless she doesn’t feel like it, in which you will cease to exist for her.
This Cat’s House Sign says it all: “It’s the cat’s house. We just pay the mortgage.” How can anyone argue with that? You know you became a slave the moment that cute fluffy feline walked in.
The pirates vs ninjas debate is endless, but if you, like me, feel that pirates are way better (and they have Johnny Depp!), you will be interested in this.
The Pirates Skull and Crossbones Black Domed Lunchbox will make you the envy of the lunch hall. The skull and crossbones pattern will stand out among all those plain boxes, and who can make fun of someone who brings his meal from home as long as it’s in a box that looks as cool as this?
And remember: if someone’s looking at you funny, he’s a ninja sympathizer. Beware.
We’ve come a long way since the simple alarm clocks that just rung or beeped. Technology has been very friendly to the oversleepers and companies keep coming up with the most cunning ways to make sure you get up.
The Laser Target Alarm Clock requires you to be awake enough to aim at a bull’s eye with a laser, which makes sense. I know I couldn’t do it when I’m sleepy, so by the time I could really see the damn clock that’s disturbing my sleep, I would already be awake. Since it’s difficult to impossible to create a reflex to accurately aim a laser, this has potential of working in the long run, too. I just wonders what happens if the remote runs out of battery… You might end up with an alarm that never stops. Would a laser point work?
My first personal blog sported, at one time, a header saying “Will work for books”. While books still are my free item of choice… the internet is a close second. Or maybe it’s a tie for first spot, since I like to look up stuff while reading.
The Work for WiFi Messenger Bag is just great. What better way to send your message to the world? It might not be large enough for your laptop, but you can cary your EEE or BlackBerry or PDA and get online on your breaks from scrubbing the dishes or mopping the floors. Really, how much can you survive without checking your e-mail? What if someone important happens in Blogland and you’re not there to witness it?!
I think I’m one of the few lucky people whose wallet was never stolen. Several mobile phones, yes, but never a wallet. Better not talk about it and jinx it, though.
Anyway, this post is about wallets and thieves. About the Pickpocket Wallet, to be precise. I’m not quite sure what the “Beware pickpocket” sign should do. Remind you to be careful everytime you use your wallet, probably… Personally, I doubt a picture can help very much – you need to create a reflex of always placing your wallet in the safest spot in your bag. And please, never ever put it in your back pocket. Even I could steal it from there.
Buut… it’s funny. I like the stick men. The insides are well organized. It’s unique. And it might just help a few people be more careful. Thumbs up from me.
Modern vampires are more concerned with frilly shirts and melancholy thoughts, but if you happen to run into an old school bloodsucker you must be prepared.
The Garlic Mints will make Dracula steer clear of you, so you needn’t worry you’ll end up as someone’s Bloody Mary (or Tim, or John). However… there’s a side effect. Everyone will steer clear of you. Your friends will suddenly become extremely busy. Girls will find something important to talk to a friend on the other side of the hall.
You need to decide what’s more important: having friends or being protected from vampires, because you can’t have them both.
This is one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen. Like all kids, I saved coins and I went out once in a while and bought myself some candy… I want to thank the people who invented the Face Bank Brick for not thinking of it 15 years ago. It would’ve given me nightmares.
It’s a piggybank. But not a normal piggybank in which you drop coins: this one eats them. Literally. The “face” moves and swallows your money. You can’t properly understand the weirdness until you see it, so just check out the following video.
If you want to scar a child for life, by all means, give him a Face Bank.
