For those of you who haven’t gotten a chance to know me, I’m a sucker for anything cute, nerdy, or otherwise amusing that you can buy online. Sometimes I stumble on it by accident, sometimes I look for it on purpose. You’d be amazed by how the human mind comes up with the weirdest of things to sell. Whether it’s for show, has a practical use, or is just for your own entertainment (cause boredom is for the weak!) Either way, it’s still amusing what you find on the internet.
What kinds of things am I talking about? I’ll show you some example with links galore in case you want to buy them!
1. Tetris Icecube Tray – I could probably be backed up by the older, geeky generation when I guess that nerds and geeks back in the 70’s or 80’s weren’t known for throwing awesome mixer parties, unless you count late night “Mountain Dew and Cheetoes” fueled DnD romps in your mom’s basement a mixer party. But for some unknown reason, the nerds and geeks decided to take a cue from the college party animals and thus the Tetris Icecube tray was born! Put your pieces in drinks, or play a fun, chilly game of tetris, your choice! Why does this amuse me? Cause the thought of bringing a tray of tetris cubes out of the freezer while blasting the Tetris Hardcore Remix on the speakers at a LAN party is too fun to resist in my mind.
2. Squishy Bowl Set – Combining two of my favorite things in the world. Bowls, and “squishy”. Seriously, this isn’t so much amusing as it is awesome. I keep wanting to buy a set of these things, but apparently the store keeps running out of them. Why amusing? Cause my weird-ass brain can only think that somehow this is how Card Crusher got his start.
3. Survival Bracelet – This goes into the section of “questionable practicality” simply due to the fact that I’m not much of an outdoorsman myself. Maybe that’s not grounds for that, but damnit, this is my post! Anyways, this handy little bracelet holds 14 feet of 550lb strength paracord. Use it to rescue kittens and babies, lasso that wasciwawwy wabbit. Hell, even rappel down building in a covert operation or reconnaissance (for those non-geeks out there) This is funny cause of the fact that one, I’ll never have a practical use for this, other than tying Sibby to a la….. okay, you know what, maybe there are a couple of uses I could have for this thing after all! Yay for practicality!
Yup, I’m a sucker for stupid stuff… *adds to cart*
