Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate
Did you ever dream of living in the arcade when you were a kid? Every morning, you'd eat your cereal on the air hockey table (turned on, of course, so your spoon would float ever so slightly). You'd get in a few rounds of your favorite game before school and when you got home, you and all your friends would mash buttons together. Then you'd go to bed, snuggled up in the ball pit...

Pixel Time Wall Clock
Back when videogames cost a quarter per play, and nobody had phones in their pockets, geeks would spend their hard earned cash in dimly lit yet brightly colored arcades. The din of bleeps and bloops was hypnotic, and drew passers by within, like some kind of insidious 8-bit pitcher-plant. Arcades, like Las Vegas casinos, were designed to lure you in and keep you there, so as to keep collecting your coins. No view of the outside world, no clocks, no sense of time at all...

Panic Button Light Switch Replacement Kit
In every sci-fi film or TV show, there is usually one easily recognizable trope - no, not the hypersexual female alien in the skin-tight cat-suit, though she does make a fairly regular appearance. The answer we're looking for is the panic-button. You know, the Red Button™! The big shiny candy-like button that erases history, ejects the warp core, blows the emergency seals, activates the self-destruct, sounds red-alert, engages the hyperdrive, activates the halide fire-retardants, or simply flushes the waste-disposal system is a regular character in most sci-fi. It's curious, then, that the Big Red Button™ doesn't appear in your home or office! Wouldn't it be great to have one of those buttons, even if pressing it doesn't warn the sentries that the world-killer virus has escaped containment? What about your light-switch? Isn't that little flippy-lever overdue for a makeover? Sure it is, otherwise, you wouldn't have read this far! What we're offering is a wired replacement for your light-switch. Just turn off the breakers, pull out the light-switch and replace it with this one. It's a wire-for-wire swap, so it should be easy. Please be safe, though, and double - nay - TRIPLE CHECK that the breakers were switched before doing any home wiring. When you're done, you've got a Big Red Button™ that, when slapped, will turn on and off your lights. Also, if you just want to dim your lights and your computer voice-activation phrase isn't recognized by your home-automation equipment, your new Big Red Button™ also acts as a dimmer. Instead of smacking it, a gentle turn will lower the illumination to a level suitable for alien seduction. Features US Light-switch replacement kit 2 3/4" by 4 1/4" brushed aluminum wall plate and large red dimmer switch Not suitable for fighter ejection panels, nuclear rod extraction, or fire suppression systems Let's be serious here: Please use caution when performing any electrical work in your house Make sure you trip the breaker to your outlet to the off position before attempting to replace your switch

If you're like most geeks, your work environment can be a depressing and sterile place.

Unfortunately, you've got bills to pay, so you punch in every morning and punch out every night feeling a little more dead with each passing day...
Horror Movie Shower Curtain & Bath Mat
You are sound asleep when suddenly a piercing noise jolts you out of bed. You slowly slink to the bathroom and flip on the lights. Your eyes are assaulted with the goriest of sights - a shower curtain smeared with bloody hand prints and a bath mat stained with bloody footprints. Your heart is now racing; there's no way you're going back to sleep now. Which is perfect because the piercing noise was your alarm clock, the gory sight was your new Horror Movie Shower Curtain & Bath Mat, you're now fully awake, and it's time to get ready for work. Of course the Horror Movie Shower Curtain & Bath Mat are completely practical - you can use them to keep the water in your shower and rub your toesies on when you are done. But that's not why you want them. You want them for the thrill, for the little jolt down your spine every time you turn on the lights. But even that's not the real reason you want them. You want a Horror Movie Shower Curtain & Bath Mat so that your mom will just shake her head and wonder what she did wrong when she sees them on her next visit. And if she doesn't - if she doesn't think anything is wrong and just goes to clean up the "blood" on your Horror Movie Shower Curtain & Bath Mat as if she's done it before - well then that's really scary.

The problem with most food is that it either grows out of dirt, or it poops. Sorry to be so graphic, but it's true. Whether your food is of the dirt-growing variety or excretes solid waste, you're going to want to make sure it's clean before you eat it. Back in olden times, you know - before the XBox - ancient man would rinse their food in the local stream (ignoring what Grog was doing in the stream just a few feet away). They would hold as much broccoli in their hands as they could. Back then, ridiculously huge hands was a good survival trait as you could wash more produce at one go. Now we've got colanders - bowls with holes drilled in them - that can hold a bunch of veggies at once, and let the water drain out. Due to their geometry, colanders take up a lot of space in your kitchen cabinet. Sure, you can find ways to store them so that they take up less space - try wearing it as a hat! I'd rather use a colander that folds. Yeah, you heard right - this colander folds! Dishwasher safe, hacker black and awesome - evolve and wash your veggies.
