Outing My Inner Geek

If you havent been to Think Geek go now. No, now. Why? Because of all the cool shiz that they offer.

I'm glad they only accept PayPal as it's the only reason these virtual nerds havent absconded with all of my savings. If I did have a PayPal account... or if the Geeks decided to accept credit card payment, I can only begin to imagine the financial carnage.

I personally love:

- The carnivorous desktop plant set. How awesome would it be to have your own Venus flytrap?! The answer? Super cool.

- The assorted microbe plushies and the Ugly Dolls.

- Swedish Fire Steel. Described on the site as "a flash of genius. Its nearly 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel's dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues. Amazingly enough it also works equally well when wet. We think geeks will appreciate the power of being able to start a fire with such a simple tool." (see photo of it sparking!)

- The desktop ninjas are nifty too. It isnt every day you can send ninjas named Eric, Roger, Al, and Takashi to attack your co-worker.

- The shirts are pretty cool too. Personal favorites are "Obey Gravity, Its the Law", "There's no place like", and everything that has the Caffeine molecule on it.

- Gotta give props to the Swiss. And not just because they created gentlemen like Yves and Flavio (right Millie?). So, the Swiss raised boys like those two... and then went on to not only make good cheese, they've also inspired geeks to create a Swiss Memory USB which contains a USB flash drive, an LED light, a Swiss Army knife,and a ballpoint pen.

- Why stop there right? The Swiss Beat Mp3 is a swiss army knife that also has a built-in mp3 player.

- And while we're at it: I *heart* the concept of the Gorillapod, a tripod that "firmly secures your compact digital camera to just about anything - anywhere and everywhere." And they mean everywhere. Check out the action photos of the Gorillapod at work. It too is neat and nifty!

So many brilliant geekoid gadgets and toys... go now! Check it out! Indulge your inner geek!
