The Mornin'

Woot for Democrats taking the House! Even though the Senate is too close to call, at least we won't have two more years of Republican-dominated policy-making. Yay!

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.

September - Cluelessness. There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

DecemberIdiocy. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
I may have to get one of these calendars. Mmmm... more geekish goodness.
