There’s a ton of great collectible merchandise out there for fans of sci-fi, comics, and fantasy. While they’re not all perfect, most of the merchandising tie-ins are at least somewhat logical these days. And then there’s stuff like this.
It’s 2019, and ordinary beer bongs just won’t cut it. Gravity just doesn’t deliver beer fast enough for some people. That’s why we now have the Q-bong pressurized beer bong, a device designed to shoot beer down the throat of its recipient faster than ever.
Is a game of frisbee not high-tech enough for you? Well, Brookstone, is selling this VFO (Video Flying Object) with a 720P video camera for you to destroy. Okay, they say it’s “super rugged” but clearly you haven’t seen me throw a frisbee.
Apparently, a drunk guy got into a scuffle with a Knightscope K5 security robot, and by scuffle I mean he knocked the 330-pound robot over. Maybe in an effort see if Weebles really do wobble, but don’t fall down, since the thing does look like a giant Weeble.
So your company has a wildly popular product that people are clamoring for to the point that there are widespread shortages, and you can’t keep up with demand? What do you do? Well if you are Nintendo you say EFF THOSE GUYS and discontinue the product.
Youtuber TechRax likes to buy expensive gadgets and destroy them for views. Yeah, this kind of stuff gets old pretty quick, but it’s gotten him over 5 million subscribers. And the only reason I’m sharing this video with you guys is because his latest video has Rax at the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
Have you ever seen someone do something and just wondered what in the actual f**k they were thinking? This is certainly one of those cases. A pair of idiots went into a Phoenix, Arizona Wal-Mart with possible plans to set their Snapchats ablaze with followers and comments by setting fire to a display of fireworks.
Ugh. Taking selfies is so much work. If only there was a selfie stick that would do all of the work for you, while you make your duck face. Well apparently there is. The UnREAL Selfie Stick is the selfie stick to end all selfie sticks.
You know those newfangled hoverboards that are prone to explode and are really not that great anyway? Looks like people are just getting started making stupid accessories for them. Take, for example this hoverboard sitting attachment that lets you ride across the beach sitting on your lawn chair throne like redneck royalty.
The Pooch Selfie is surely one of the signs of the apocalypse. Like the Selfie Spoon, it is a product that shows a society on the decline, and makes me want to run around freaking out, pulling out my hair.
Selfies. A vile habit for the vain? Or just a fun way to be forever alone? Maybe both. Selfies jumped the shark a long time ago with such products as the Selfie Stick. Just when you thought the selfie accessories could not get any stranger, along comes the Selfie Spoon.
We like our LEGO around these parts and a new story has surfaced from Sweden that makes our hearts and heads hurt. As the story goes, a LEGO collector is being forced to sell his LEGO collection by his wife.
I don’t know why this keeps happening to people. Maybe because some people just don’t do their research first before handing over their money?
Regardless, this story should be a cautionary tale to most people who buy gadgets from unauthorized and unverified merchants online.
