I have never been big on camping, but the Tentanic might just change my mind. In case you’re wondering, the Tentanic is a tent of massive proportions, with a name that was drawn from one of the most well-known cruise ships in history: the Titanic.
This officially-licensed 1966 Batmobile replica isn’t as destructive as the 21st century Batman’s Tumbler, but at least you can drive this one on the streets. Imagine riding this home for the holidays this year. You’ll be a smash, but only if you live some place warm because even if it has a flamethrower, you’ll get a bit cold and wet if you’re not careful enough.
I’m not a very big fan when it comes to putting puzzles together. I find the task extremely time-consuming and pretty hard to figure out, especially those 1000-piece puzzle sets where you have to piece a picture of Mona Lisa or some random view together.
I was raised by pretty conservative parents, and sometimes, I think that their paranoia has rubbed off on me. For example, whenever I go out of town and stay the night in some hotel, I always go to great pains to ensure that all the double locks are in place and that all the windows are locked.
I grew up listening to several varying versions of Little Red Riding Hood. My favorite part was when (sort of slow-brained) Little Red notices how different her grandmother looks, who’s actually now the sneaky wolf in disguise.
One thing that I had always wanted when I was still a kid was a trampoline, right in my own room. Sad to say, my parents didn’t get me one. They were always the overprotective kind and reasoned that I would probably fracture my skull or break a leg if I had one.
In this day and age, most people get motivated to do things only because of instant gratification. Feeling lonely? Get a puppy. Feeling dissatisfied? Go on a shopping spree. Feeling sad? Go get drunk.
Maybe it’s become our culture because so many things out there just scream “instant.”
There was a time when I tried living without a wallet, and after losing a few important cards, I quickly reverted to carrying one again. This QWERTY leather wallet is certainly distinctive with its keyboard embossing and will serve all geeks well.
