I love ThinkGeek. Today I checked out their USB Snowbot:
There is a chance that the artificial intelligence which created the robot armies of the future originated from a massive connection of small USB desktop devices plugged into computers connected to the Internet. Please don't blame us if, by attempting to find a way to save humanity, we have inadvertently doomed it. Thank you.There's also an AYB reference in the advert. True geekish excellence.
I also looked at their Despair, Inc. 2007 Calendar. Some of my favorites:
January - Wishes. When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.I may have to get one of these calendars. Mmmm... more geekish goodness.
September - Cluelessness. There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
December – Idiocy. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
