Dart Automatic Pet Laser Toy
Since we've already given our children handheld video game systems for self-amusement, we now turn to the automagical entertainment of our pets. After all, with all the damage we're doing to our median nerve typing on a computer all day, the last thing we need to do is pick up a laser pointer and twirl our wrist about. Ouch! Clearly, the gods invented technology so we could sit on our butts and be lazy and let technology amuse our little ones, furry or otherwise. The Dart is an automatic rotating laser light that will delight the feline or canine in your life. And if we're being honest (scout's honor!) it's pretty amusing for people, too. Place Dart on a level and stable surface (oh hai, floor!), turn it on and watch the chase begin! Variable speeds and timer settings offer 16 exciting play combinations. Our personal favorite is using it to distract the kitties when the humans are going to bed. By the time the timer shuts off the Dart, all the humans are snuggled in bed and asleep behind closed doors. Do we miss the snuggles? Yes. Do we miss pointy paws between our ribs and being meowed in the face at 5 am? Not so much. Product Specifications Automatic rotating laser light for hours of pet amusement Exercises and entertains - great for fat cats and chubby pups Variable speed settings, from tortoise to kitten-high-on-'nip Adjustable timer saves battery life by shutting Dart off automatically after 10, 15, or 20 minutes 16 exciting play combinations keeps pets on their paw pads! 360 degree laser patterns for round and round excitement Batteries: 3 AA (not included)

LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp
Blackbeard was just about the most ruthless pirate ever. His management style was unique, to say the least. If one of his crew misbehaved, he would drop them in a large tank full of jellyfish and delight as the jewels he kept at the bottom of the tank reflected different colors into the ballet of agony that played out before him. According to the infamous pirate's diaries, it really calmed his nerves, too. Wow...

Original Sock Monkey
"ThinkGeek is accutely aware of the strange phenomenon that exists between monkeys and geeks. What we are less aware of is the reason for such a phenomenon. We suspect that the word 'monkey' itself is partly to blame. It is such a damned addictive word. Try it out sometime. You can use the word 'monkey' in a variety of ways if you really put your monkeyminds to it... One of my personal favorite uses of the word is 'monkeypork'. I have no idea why, since I've never had monkeypork, don't even know what it is, and certainly wouldn't try it in the first place. It's quite perplexing but truly attests to the magic intrinsic in a monkeyword. 20"" stuffed Sock Monkey, infinitely cute in its ugliness, makes a lucky addition to your office space. Tail and appendages included! Features: For Ages 2 and Up Approximately 20"" tall"

Sundial and Stardial Pendants
Technology is awesome, but can we trust it? How can we be sure that our cell phones aren't recording our brain waves and transmitting our ideas to evil corporations? How can we be sure that our watches aren't silently recording our pulses and sending the data to Big Food so they know when to advertise those juicy bacon cheeseburgers on TV and ruin our diet plans? Yeah, see, now you're paranoid too. We've taken the mirrors out of our bathrooms to avoid that classic horror movie moment, too. We recommend you do the same. Preventative paranoia is the key to success. Part of our plan is eschewing traditional watches for the sundial. Inspired by designs from Babylonia, Egypt, the Celts of Northern Europe, the Mayans and Incas and Aztecs, we've found the most imaginative and accurate wearable sundials anywhere. Instructions for reading your new sundial are included. Batteries, however, are not. They're not needed! Who needs batteries to sense the rhythms of the solar system? Guaranteed to work as long as the sun rises... and we don't want to think about the day that stops happening. How the Sundial works... On a sunny day, suspend the sundial by its black satin cord. Through a tiny hole, a thin ray of sunshine will illuminate a number on the inside of the dial showing the time of day. This Aquitaine sundial was named after Eleanor of Aquitaine, who gave one to King Henry II of England so Henry would know when to return from the hunt for their love trysts. (One must always be timely for love trysts. Tryst us on that one.) How the Stardial works... Set the middle wheel to the month, hold the dial upside down, and sight the North Star through the center hole. Move the top of the dial's arm to align with the uppermost stars of the Big Dipper, and read the time on the inner dial where the arm crosses the hour mark! Star dials were first used in the 15th century by navigators and are extremely accurate because they are based on the North Star. Product Features Pewter sundial & stardial ring pendants Tell the time without electricity, gears, or other technology Modeled after historical timepieces Approximately 1.3 inches (3.3 cm) in diameter Comes with a 30" black silk cord (or supply your own chain)
The Ex - Unique Knife Set and Holder
We'll get right to the point with this product - it's a wicked cool design for a knife holder and certainly a lot more edgy than the standard old block of wood. We're not sure who the designer might have been thinking of when he created this but we definitely like the results. And it includes five knives!. This unique artistic knife holder is made of heavy duty ABS plastic and will be the talk of the party! It's an innovative knife suspension system with individual protective knife sleeves for each blade. The five knives are made from heavy gauge durable stainless steel. The slots are magnetized to secure knives in the holder. Overall, we'd say The Ex Knife Set is very cutting edge!
If you're like most geeks, your work environment can be a depressing and sterile place. Designed to crush your soul to squeeze the last few ergs of energy out of each and every wageslave, grey walls, grey carpeting, and anemic flickering fluorescent lighting all combine into something truly evil. 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...

Hello My Name Is Inigo Montoya Babydoll
"We hate going to events that require nametags. We don't like encouraging strangers to talk to us. Plus, we always forget to take the damn thing off when we walk out of whatever it was that required the nametag, so we're headed home, stopping by the grocery store, accidentally encouraging the produce manager to address us by name. Which is just creepy. The one exception would be if you had a really long name such as Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lim bus stop F'tang F'tang Olé Biscuitbarrel. Or if you had something complicated you had to say with your introduction, such as, ""Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."" Saying that over and over gets tedious (just ask Count Rugen). So in this case, we figure we can condone the use of nametags. Just this once. Black babydoll (fitted) shirt with white and red ""Hello my name is..."" sticker over the chest, with Inigo Montoya's full spiel wedged in there."

Dreamlights Fireflies in a Jar
"As the days get longer, and the nights get warmer, people are venturing outside their doors and enjoying the moonlight. As they walk down streets and paths, the flickering lights of fireflies are hard to miss. During some summers, trees would light up with more fireflies than there were stars in the heavens, turning the whole sky upside-down. As kids, many of us ran through our parents' back yards, collecting fireflies in jars. They'd flicker inside, blinking out their little buggy code to each other. We would wonder what their bioluminescent blinkenlights were actually saying. Were they discussing the merits of Proust? Perhaps engaging in a rabid defense of French Existentialist poetry in an age of materialism and excess. No - nothing that heady. In fact, their gentle flickering communicates their ability to mate and their location - the entomological equivalent of ""Hey baby! Yo! Over here, good-lookin'! Yo!"" Of course, unless you're an 8-year old boy, or an entomologist, bugs are kinda icky, so handling them may not be your favorite thing to do. Also, there's the cruelty factor of shaking a jar full of bugs giving them tiny buggy concussions in an effort to stimulate their bioluminescence simply for the joy of a child who, in a few short minutes, will lose interest in favor of their Nintendo DS and some new Pokemon title. So where bugs fail us, robots fill in. These robots come in the form of tiny LEDs inside a frosted glass lantern. During the day, the lantern soaks up the energy of the sun, and during the night the little robot bugs glow, flickering and throbbing like real fireflies. You can set them to glow as long as they have power, or only when you shake the lantern. Don't worry about harming the little fellas - they aren't real. Your karma is safe. So traipse across your moonlit garden again, like you did when you were a kid. Set it on your night stand to offer a soft soothing glow while you sleep, or just take a walk using the lantern as cool illumination as you go. The fireflies won't mind - in fact, they'll probably come to check out the hot little robotic numbers inside. Ooh yeah, baby. Features Glass lantern full of flickering LED ""fireflies"" Rechargeable solar batteries keep your lights going for many hours Switchable to glow when it gets dark, or when you shake the jar Soothing light that's cruelty free! 4 inches in diameter, 5 3/4 inches tall"
