Did you ever have a coworker who just freakin annoyed you all day long?
Well, get ready to suck no more. ThinkGeek brings us this wonderful little gadget to get your revenge on! The Annoy-a-Tron is small enough to hide under a phone or on the side of a desk and powerful enough to annoy that coworker that you have an oh so special relationship with.
The Annoy-a-tron generates a short (but very annoying, hence the name) beep every few minutes. Your unsuspecting target will have a hard time 'timing' the location of the sound because the beeps will vary in intervals ranging from 2 to 8 minutes. The 2kHz sound is generically annoying enough, but if you really really want to aggravate somebody, select the 12 kHz sound. Trust us. The higher frequency and slight 'electronic noise' built into that soundbyte will make a full-grown Admin wonder where his packets are.
I'm giving these to all my office working buddies for Christmas.

I stumbled across this amazing toilet seat on the web today. This one, along with a few other varieties such as the keyboard toilet seat are available at Jammin Johns. (ha!)

Last year, Bush said the following about America's economy: "A future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy – and that is what we have. … This economy is on the move, and our job is to keep it that way, not with more government, but with more enterprise.." – President George W. Bush, State Of The Union Address, 1/23/07

The end of summer is approaching fast, so it's time to squeeze in as much fun as you can. Today I came across this amazing Ice Cream Ballat Amazon.
From the website:
"With the unique Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker, you can make ice cream while on camping trips, at picnics, barbecues, and many other places. You don't need electricity to make great tasting ice cream, but rather just add ice and rock salt in one end and ice cream mix in the other end. Then, have a ball as you shake it, pass it, or roll it around for 10 to 15 minutes. The ice cream mix can be as simple as cream, sugar, and vanilla or you can try a more adventurous flavor from the included recipe list or make up your own concoction. Made of durable polycarbonate, the Ice Cream Ball is lightweight, portable, and easy to clean."
I want one.
Damn. I bet this thing would make amazing frozen cocktails!

A recent publication by S. Zarrintan, entitled "Ejaculation as a potential treatment of nasal congestion in mature males" has my head and nasal passages spinning. Published in the 2008 Journal of Medical Hypotheses, the article suggests that sinus sufferers simply masturbate as a way to clear nasal congestion.
The author suggests that ejaculation stimulates the adrenergic receptors, causing a side effect of decongestion. With proper masturbatory and sexual intercourse scheduling, you have a clear sinuses for the rest of your life!
If I had only known about this when I wrote that artlce on the benefits of masturbation!

If you're a geek like me, you're always looking for new nerd stuff to sit around the house. The Periodic Coffee Table is a beautiful, if expensive, addition to the home or office of any scientist! It is a beautiful acrylic block situated inside a table of burred oak. Actual element samples are blocked into the table, aside from several of the radioactive elements, which would just be unsafe.
You gotta love a coffee table that comes with it's own instruction sheet about "safety issues". I would LOVE to have one of these, unfortunately, this geek girl can't afford the $8500.00 price tag. For now, I'll just stick with the periodic table shower curtain that my SO got me for my birthday last year.
True geek love.

I am a grown woman, which means society says that I cannot decorate my bedroom with these amazing Nintendo wall graphics.
I LOVE THESE!
ThinkGeek sells this version, plus a beautiful Donkey Kong version as well.
If I had a game room, I suppose society would let me put them there. Oh well. There are red bricks and mushrooms in my mind and there's nothing anyone can do about it!

I've been an Amazon affiliate for quite some time now. They have ads on my sidebar and I profit from any purchases made.
Today when I was browsing my site I noticed that Amazon had this in my Ad bar. I spit out my coffee. I actually purchased this product for my boyfriend last Christmas.
I wish I could have been in on the board meeting.
(insert hazy scooby doo flashback scene here)
Crewcut ad guy #1: We have to think of some way to market this weed grinder. Who IS our target audience?
Crewcut ad guy #2: I don't know. Let's google stoner and see what comes up.
Crewcut ad guy #3: Hm...here's some quote about how stoners watch the daily show. Mostly smart liberals watch the daily show.
Stoner ad guy: That's it! We'll market the weed grinder to geeks!!!

My love affair with computers began in junior high. There were no computers in our school, so the first time I saw one was in the home of our wealthy neighbor. I never wanted to take apart anything so badly in my entire life! Using a program called Print Shop, you could even use the computer to print out a banner! WOW!
The other thing you could do was make a little stick figure man go up and down the stairs of his stick figure home and answer the door. It was amazing!
The introduction of computers into schools came about during my high school years. While I certainly played my share of Oregon Trail, no one in the school had a clue as to how these things worked. Finally, my first year of college, I used a student loan to buy my very own PC. The first thing I did after turning it on and booting it up (a 30 minute procedure) was to turn it off and take it apart. SWEET!
Then I loaded Prodigy and the rest of my love affair with the internet is history. My son was three at the time and could click and scroll before he knew how to tie his shoe.
I see him now, 17 and a senior in high school. He's just as fascinated as I was. I was so proud of him in junior high, the way he secretly loaded Firefox onto all the school lab computers and deleted IE. My baby!
I can't imagine what the world must be like for him. Growing up with computers and never being without the internet. No wonder he feels as if there isn't anything he can't learn.

My goal when I started freelance writing was to save up enough money for a nice, new, geek-tastic laptop. I'm happy to say that last month, I met my goal and am as of this moment, typing on it with a satisfied grin on my face. I am a certified nerd who is in love with her own gadgets.
I had a delimma over which one to purchase. My heart told me to get an apple, but my savings account begged to differ. My teenage son wanted to to get something that I could easily run Ubuntu on. While I am a well known geek girl, I'm concentrating on my writing skills right now. When I get ready to earn my computer freak-hood badge, I'll let him know.
Instead, I decided on a Toshiba Satellite computer with Windows Vista. So far, I have absolutely loved it! I can't keep my hands off it and I think my significant other is becoming jealous. I'm curious to know what everyone's preferences are. Mac, PC, EEeeee....? What is your weapon of choice?
My mother called today to ask for my help with her email. She is 75 years old and uses AOL Dial up service. Her problem, you see, was that she could not open an email attachment from something called "you tube".
Here's where the moral dilemma comes in. The attachment was an Obama bashing video that she wanted to see.
I compromised. I opened the attachment for her, but explained that because of her connection, it would take over an hour to buffer. She decided not to wait.
These cool ice shot glasses can be found on the ThinkGeek website. I ordered some for my boyfriend and they are fantastic. They come as a mold of four shot glasses. You fill the mold up with water and put it in the freezer. Once it's frozen, you just pop them out of the mold and pour in the tequila!
If you don't like the ones at ThinkGeek, they have some pretty nice ones on Amazon, as well.

LONDON (AFP) - Renowned British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has bet 100 dollars (70 euros) that a mega-experiment this week will not find an elusive particle seen as a holy grail of cosmic science, he said Tuesday.
In the most complex scientific experiment ever undertaken, the speed of light before smashing them together.(LHC) will be switched on Wednesday, accelerating sub-atomic particles to nearly the
"The LHC will increase the energy at which we can study particle interactions by a factor of four. According to present thinking, this should be enough to discover the Higgs particle," Hawking told BBC radio.
"I think it will be much more exciting if we don't find the Higgs. That will show something is wrong, and we need to think again. I have a bet of 100 dollars that we won't find the Higgs," added Hawking, whose books including "A Brief History of Time" have sought to popularise study of .

Contrary to what you might be thinking, this article is not about my previous relationships...which can only be classified as mutual ego masturbation. Nor is it about my lovely present relationship.
Let me explain.
I've been doing freelance writing for several months now and I have to say that I am enjoying it more and more every day. I write a lot for Demand Studios which produces content for Ehow.com. I log in and choose from a list of articles to write about. A couple of weeks ago I paused as I came across the "How Does Masturbation Relieve Stress?" title.
Of couse I chose it! People always tell you to 'write what you know'. Right?
I had a little too much fun doing that article. The photo I chose was a shirtless guy pumping lotion into his hand and the article got quite comical as the process went on. So much so that I was afraid of getting a little note from my editor saying "NO WAY is this getting publsihed".
Quite the contrary, I'm pleased to report. I got a note back saying excellent writing and grammar and that it was quite clever. Also, that I should add more "hard data" to paragraph two.
HARD DATA!!! Bwahhahhhaaaaaaaa!
Since this article is for a new, unlaunched part of the site, it is not yet available for viewing. As soon as it is, I'll be sure to post a link.
However, I would appreciate it if you have time to check out a few of my favorites.
How to Increase Your Wife's Libido
In my mind, the subtitile is: Do the Fucking Dishes.
Or you could take a look at
How to Do Unique April Fool's Pranks
Either way, I have begun to choose all the titles relating to sex and alcohol.
write what you know..write what you know...write what you know...
