May the Force be with your lawn

"We find the idea of a Jawa lawn ornament a bit puzzling. After all, aren't Jawa desert-dwellers? What makes anyone think that a Jawa is going to be able to turn your grass green? We could see a Jawa feeling comfortable in the southwest, maybe in Phoenix or Albuquerque. When your lawn is more of a rock garden, a Jawa would really feel at home. But maybe these are freethinking Jawas. The kind that are sick of desert life and want to sink their stinky toes into some grass.
Sculpted to look like a classic garden gnome, the Garden Jawa Lawn Ornament comes in just under a foot in height. Made of solid resin and fully painted, he's ready for any weather, rain or shine. And the ultimate bonus - he'll totally sell your junk at your next yard sale and get top price.
Product Features
  • Solid resin, fully painted Jawa lawn ornament is ready for rain or shine
  • Sculpted to look like a typical garden gnome, but way better
  • Measures close to a foot in height"

Crinoidea Plush

"The gravel driveway of my grandparents' house is full of crinoid stem fossils - as a child it was thrilling to find such neat fossils so easily.

Crinoids, also known as sea lilies or feather stars, are echinoderms related to starfish and sea urchins. They originated in the Ordovician, and still exist today.

Would be a great decorative pillow or plush for a paleontologist or fossil enthusiast!


Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Echinodermata
Class: Crinoidea"

Ivan Drago's School Equipment

"Is that a BLT or a spleen?
Perhaps you've heard this story before? You spend the time to prepare an awesome lunch, and carry it with you to work only to find that, when the lunch whistle sounds, some filthy thief raided your tupperware and has stolen your juice-box. Sure, there are plenty of ways to combat the dreaded lunch thief. You can leave passive-aggressive notes, but those only get laughed at. You can resort to shelf-stable items that require no refrigeration, but they kinda suck. Or, you can hire Dolph Lundgren to guard your lunchbox.

As awesome as it sounds to actually have Ivan Drago personally watching over your BLT and Monster Energy Drink, he's just as likely to eat it himself. You just can't win.
Or can you? Engage in some tried-and-true social engineering! Our new Organ Transport Lunch Cooler employs three different methods to dissuade your would-be sammich pilferer: One - Your new lunchbox is going to be pretty unique and will get jaws a-flappin' over the cool design. Everybody will know who it belongs to, and personalized knowledge of the owner would make the thief feel guilty about stealing. Two - the gross-out factor that the contents of your bag is actual human organs dissuading your thief from even wanting to open it let alone steal it. Three - if the bag actually contained human organs, opening the bag would contaminate the contents, ruining the potential for transplant, and that would be morally reprehensible on a scale that far outstrips simply stealing a lunch.
So save your sack from getting pinched by a coworker too cheap or lazy to get his own lunch. Do so in a way that looks cool and is guaranteed to turn heads and get people talking!
  • Insulated lunch box with reflective inner lining
  • Designed to resemble an organ transplant donation cooler
  • Will keep your food chilled while keeping lunch-thieves away
  • A ThinkGeek Exclusive!"

Land Before Time

"We are the dinosaurs marching, marching...
Except these friendly rainbow dinos are marching for peace and tolerance, not to mention recycling, as they are made from lovely soft eco-felt derived from 100% recycled plastic drinks bottles. For all I know they are probably vegans too.

"For the molecular biologist in you...

These lacy beaded earrings use a variety of glass seed beads woven together to resemble a double helix of DNA. Bugle bead rungs separate the color-coded base pairs of molecules.

The coloring of the base pairs comes from the enzyme PpiI which is found in the microorganism Pseudomonas putida. Pseudomonas putida is a safe strain of soil bacterium, and is the first patented organism in the world. Because it is a living organism the patent was disputed and brought before the United States Supreme Court in the historic court case Diamond v. Chakrabarty which the inventor, Ananda M. Chakrabarty, won. It demonstrates the ability to biodegrade organic solvents such as oil. The specific base pair sequence shown in each earrings is

Well, Hello Dali

"When Salvador Dali created his masterpiece The Persistence of Memory some suggested he was making some kind of statement regarding Einstein's newly published treatise on Special Relativity - that the melted clocks represented a surrealist meditation on our notions of a fixed cosmic order. In fact, Dali just thought the melted clocks looked like slabs of camembert left out in the sun too long.
The truth is, time is an illusion - lunchtime, doubly so. 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 - metaphorically speaking, of course.
So when performing truly boring tasks, for example: work, we require time pieces to remind us that the passage of time persists without us even being aware of them. Clocks on the walls, in our computers, or in digital watches (which is a pretty neat idea). They show us the passage of time, but they don't show us the ooey-gooey consistency of time that has stretched out into something barely recognizable.
This clock, however, succeeds where those others fail. Here we can accurately see the passage of time whilst being reminded that time drips and flows like fatty rotten milk. Don't worry, though - even if the clock is stretched and pulled like taffy, it still tells accurate time... unless you're spiraling towards the event horizon of a black hole, or traveling at relativistic speeds where time tends to slow and stretch. Hmm... maybe Dali was thinking about special relativity after all?"

Can you see anything?

"A microscope (from the Greek: μικρός, mikrós, "small" and σκοπεῖν, skopeîn, "to look" or "see") is an instrument for viewing objects that are too small to be seen by the naked or unaided eye. The science of investigating small objects using such an instrument is called microscopy. The term 'microscopic' means minute or very small, not visible with the eye unless aided by a microscope."

I was looking for a purpose for my arsenic.


"Now with FIVE nucleotide base pairs!

Everyone knows that a NASA funded research team claims to have found a bacterium (GFAJ-1) in Mono Lake, California, that when starved of phosphorus substitutes arsenic and continues thriving. Some folks say bunk, some folks wonder why astrobiologists are bothering to study things on Earth, and others just want to know what's in it for them.
Well, we now know what's in it for them, See, the arsenic chomping bacteria are cool, but what's even cooler are the Artemia monica found eating said bacteria. Duh, what? Artemia monica is the fancypants name for Sea Monkeys (specifically, those found in Mono Lake, California). And what's even cooler, by eating the GFAJ-1, the Sea Monkeys have also gained the ability to substitute arsenic for phosphorus. Promptly removing this new breed of Sea Monkey's eggs from the water instantly puts them into cryptobiosis (another fancypants word meaning, "suspended animation.") Because of this cryptobiosis and the fact that Sea Monkeys breed at an alarming rate, we have tons of eggs which we can now offer to all of you. That's right, you can get your very own Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys today!
sea monkeys Straight from Mono Lake (just like GFAJ-1), these Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys are 100% pure science and 100% fun, which means 200% awesome for you!
You get everything you need to grow your own: from the eggs to a neato habitat, and we also have an optional face mask with respirator! We've really pulled out all the stops with this kit. And of course you get some arsenic. Seriously, we couldn't call them Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys and not give you some arsenic, right? Well, you get some, and you also get some stickers to decorate the included habitat with! Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys are a great way for children to learn about the wonders of science and when not to put things in their mouths. Treat your Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys well and if you're lucky (and have the right background music), you'll notice them mating and laying tons of Arsenic-Based Sea Monkey eggs for you to grow even more!
** Bonus ** Dr. Mindel's Family-Friendly Science Fact: Did you know that because of all the regicide committed with it, arsenic was once called the King of Poisons? It's true! So, that means Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys are really Sea Monkey royalty! Bow down before them, pull on your protective suit (included in the Optional Safety Pack), and get ready to grow the most awesomest of the instant pets: Arsenic-Based Sea Monkeys.
