The life of a Mad Scientist is a trying one. There are so many giant death robots to build and mind-control serums to develop that by the end of the day, you’re exhausted! Time to send the minions off to bed, and enjoy a delightfully refreshing libation in your secret lair. Our barware set is made from steel and borosilicate glass and will fit right into your laboratory’s design scheme… Brought to you by ThinkGeek.
These sorts of folks think they’re more important than you. Know how we know that? No matter what you’re doing (which was saving the world, BTW, not that they asked), it’s less important than whatever they need you to do. Am I right? Printers. Networking. Even proofreading. Whatever it is, the world will end if you don’t fix it for them. Right. Now. Whatever you’re doing can wait. Never mind that the stars only align like this once every 172 years. There’s a fax machine broken…
I finally found a pen I love and will not loose… well almost never loose. I was given a peweter dragon pen from French Quarter Pens a couple years ago and for the longest time I never lost it, misplaced it yes, but always found it. One day, on my way to the bus my purse went upside down in the car and partially out into the snow! I thought I’d lost my beloved pen forever and couldn’t find it anywhere. So for Christmas I was given a replacement. A couple weeks later I was looking in the car for something else and found my original pen! I was delighted as I now have 2 of these beautiful pens!
They are heavy enough that they glide over the paper but don’t make your hand hurt like most heavier pens. Having it in my purse adds a little weight and so I know it’s always there! They are a delight to write with and frequently I bring out my pen specifically for meetings at work which causes discussions n good writing tools.
I ride the Valley Mover, a local bus system in Alaska and whenever someone needs a pen I’m quick to bring out my beautiful pen for loan. More than a few times the hour drive is spent talking about how wonderful the pen is and how well it writes along with where it was purchased!
We’ve also purchased several more pens and the accompanying letter openers and magnifying glass to give as gifts.

No, I get nothing but the satisfaction that I have helped several people find a lovely pen and a small business in Louisiana, all the way from Alaska!
The Chinese takeout box is pretty much the universal sign for Chinese food in America. And also like most Chinese food in America, its origins have nothing to do with China. It was actually developed in Chicago by inventor Frederick Weeks Wilcox who was looking for a better way to package shucked oysters. Our favorite Chinese takeout boxes are filled with Chinese food (something spicy, plz), but these days you’ll find Chinese takeout boxes filled with anything. Wedding favors… Brought to you by ThinkGeek.
That night when you’re rolling well, when the dice are with you, when everything’s going your way… those games are great. Better if it’s going that way for the whole adventuring party. And stellar if somebody remembered that can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies for the queso. But you know where your war stories come from? The failures. The really epic, spectacular failures…
