    EDIT: Sorry about the thread title, should read "I <3 ThinkGeek", but I've had this nasty habit of hitting the enter key too soon lately. I suppose we could just turn this into a thread about things we like...

    This morning I woke up and decided I needed a sonic screwdriver. Naturally, the first place I find it is ThinkGeek. I think it's wonderful that every time I need something useless and geeky, it's on ThinkGeek. Anyway, I thought I'd list off the stuff I've bought from ThinkGeek and ask if anybody else here has made a habit of shopping there.

    • Countless shirts ("Keep out of Direct Sunlight", "Bow before me, for I am root", "Come to the Dark Side, We Have Cookies", etc.)
    • Dinosaur Plant (a gift to somebody)
    • A watch that I've since lost and I don't remember which one it was.

    And that's all I remember right now, which is sad considering the money I've spent there.

    This one?

    Ack, I'm usually horribly against using punctuation in hyperlinks...

    That shirt is AMAZING.

    It says it runs for hours off of three AAA batteries. Would that mean after one day of wearing it, you would have to replace batteries? A decent set of AAA batteries are like $4! That would be ridiculous.

    Easy solution: rechargeable batteries. And only wear the shirt when you're out piggybacking or trying to impress.

    over the years, I'd say that I've spent about $1,000 there. My last purchase was a dog humping USB drive.
