When I play Jenga, I’m lucky to get maybe 10 levels high before the whole tower comes tumbling down and scattering pieces all over the floor. But there are some serious Jenga experts out there who can do much better.
You know what the problem with Twinkies is? They simply aren’t big enough. Like who only eats just one ten-count box? Nobody I know, but admittedly I only truly know myself. Introducing the Hostess Party Size Twinkies Holiday Baking Kit, obviously one of only a handful of good things to come out of 2020.
The internet never stops turning. Case in point: this Device Orchestra cover of Smash Mouth’s 2001 hit “All Star”. I know, I know, it almost sounds too good to be true, but quite often the internet knows what you need to see and hear even before you do.
Are you the kind of person who likes making other people feel uncomfortable? Well, you’re in luck, because now you can pre-order one of these creepy ‘What’s your FACE?’ programmable LED masks from Neon Culture on Kickstarter (provided they meet their $15,000 funding goal).
How do you remind someone to practice social distancing? Personally I just yell. LOUD. But maybe you’re a quiet person. Maybe you just want to politely remind someone with a 4.5-volt shock to the arm from this Socially Distancing Zapper from Firebox.
Pac-Man was the first video game I ever played in the arcade back in the day. I remember not making it very long because I was always trying to gobble up the power pellets and didn’t do a good job evading the ghosts.
InstaPots and other pressure cookers have become insanely popular in recent years, with millions of households putting what basically amounts to a bomb on their kitchen counter in order to cook dinners more quickly. Thankfully, these heated and pressurized vessels have a pressure-relief valve on them to let steam out, making a catastrophic failure far less likely.
Were you a good boy or girl this year? Doesn’t matter, 2020 has spoken and we’re all getting ketchup flavored candy canes for Christmas anyways. Created by Archie McPhee, a six-pack of “rich tomato flavor” ketchup candy canes costs $6.50 and is sure to be absent from every single Christmas list this year.
When I make a run to The Home Depot, it’s usually because I need some 2x4s, drywall compound, or drill bits. So go figure that while I was shopping on their website for some completely unrelated hardware, this thing popped up on my Facebook page later in the day.
Because ghosts need busting and you’re just the person for the job, Reebok and the Ghostbusters franchise have collaborated to release these $150 Ghost Smashers sneakers. Obviously, I must have them and will throw a temper-tantrum when they sell out before I can get my hands on, and feet into a pair.
Want to own your own giant murder hornet (Vespa mandarinia) as a memento to remember 2020 by? Well, you’re in luck, because BicBugs has got some very nice specimens available. Sold with their wings spread, they’re available either unmounted ($47), or pinned and framed ($59), and are sure to be one of this Christmas’s must-have gifts.
This is the Amazon exclusive Monopoly Longest Game Ever Edition (affiliate link). The game doesn’t end for anyone when they go bankrupt; oh no, the game only ends when a single player owns every single property on the board – of which there are three times more than in a regular game.
This is the Mad Fly Sports Raptor Football, a toy football/plane hybrid that can be thrown over 100 yards. So maybe for once when my brother tells me to go long, he’ll actually mean it. The toy does require a unique throw (read: not a football spiral) for the creation of maximum lift and distance though, so there is a learning curve involved.
When you think of Halloween, it typically conjures up images of dark and scary places. Trick-or-treating is generally a nighttime activity except for maybe the tots. One thing that I don’t associate with Halloween is sunrise and breakfast time.
I’m at a point where I probably do 90% of my reading on some kind of digital device. But there are times it’s just nice to crack open a good old paperback. There’s just something that just feels right about flipping through actual pages rather than swiping on a touchscreen.
Have a Coke and a smile every time you open up this bright red desktop fridge. It’s the real thing. I’d like to buy the world one… if I could afford it. Coke adds life. Now that I’ve proven my deep knowledge of classic Coca-Cola slogans, it’s time to get back to the product.
