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

Time is an illusion - lunchtime, doubly so. The truth is, time is an arbitrary construct created by limited beings trying to make sense of causality. We perceive time as a sequence of events in a progressive chain of cause and effect. Were we to lose our perspective of cause and effect, time would lose meaning entirely, and it would seem to sag and melt like soft cheese left out in the sun - metaphorically speaking, of course...

H2O Instant Water Candle Kit
"Two packs per order for even more candle-ness!! Candles have been used for hundreds of years to spread light where there was dark, not just because no one had invented electricity yet, but because they were so beautiful. And ever since about 10 minutes after the first candle was created, the first candle-lit romantic mood was created. But regular candles are boring. Time to play with some liquid density and cooking ingredients (also romantic) and put an H2O Instant Water Candle Kit or few to good use. Ok, so first you get a jar or vase or something (something glass with a wide mouth). Fill it 3/4 full of water, and mix in some coloring for . . . well, color. Drop in any other crap you want in the jar for to make it more beautiful. Add a centimeter layer of cooking oil on top of that water, and gently float a wick (which you already inserted into a floater) on the water. Then light it. It will burn off the cooking oil (since said oil will be floating on top of the water), and look gorgeous. By using some H2O Instant Water Candle Kits, you will have unique candles that won't drip wax all over the place. Oh, and, if the candle gets knocked over by accident, the water will extinguish the flames. H2O Instant Water Candle Kit - a simple, science-y, exquisite way to add some beauty to your world. Please Note: You'll need to supply your own vase/jar, water decorations (rocks, etc), water, and oil. H2O Instant Water Candle Kit Just add water, cooking oil, and a jar (or vase) to make a beautifully unique candle. Fire not included, either. Non toxic, but that doesn't mean you should drink it. Colors: Blue, Green, and Red. Each Pack Includes: 3 floaters, 18 wicks, and 20g (0.71oz) of coloring). Super Six Pack Contains: 2 of each color - for super decorating and stuff. Package Dimensions: approx. 2.75"" x 5.5"" x 0.75"""
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...
