Great Holiday Gift Idea - Viking Beard and Helmet

Do you want to be the hit of this year's holiday party?  While everyone else will try to Out-Cosby Sweater (that's my new term) each other, you can be the talk of this year's party with this Viking beard and hat and quite possibly take home a few of the fair lasses without having to hit them on the head with a club, which was only customary standard protocol of the Viking, unfortunately we have "laws" that make this kind of practice "illegal"...(damn lawyers

While federal, state, and local laws will hinder your desire to be a Viking (blame this one again on bureaucracy) this beard and hat will certainly make you look like one.

Though I think this wasn't accounted for in the equation:

Steampunk 20" Widescreen Flatpanel Monitor -Computer

Here's another badass gift idea I found on This Is Why I'm Broke.   It's for a vintage victorian style flat panel monitor, wireless mouse and keyboard which is fashioned into a typewriter.  You can choose from different styles such as painted marble, oak, cherry, hard maple, rusty patina or anything else that comes to mind.  This will transport your favorite Steampunk back into the Victorian Ages without the fear and anxiety of catching typhoid fever.

Batman Slanket...Great Holiday Gift Ideas

relaxing, yet always vigilant
     After a long day of fighting the scum of the city, you would want to do nothing more than retire in your manor, have your butler get you a warm refreshing beverage, and catch the latest episode of America's Got Talent.  This Snuggie will help you keep warm during those cold Gotham City winters, but will also keep you vigilant, prepared, and in uniform just in case you get a Bat Signal from the Commissioner.

coincidence much?
Not only does He know how to turn water into wine, but He knows the outcome of every World Series, the theory behind Occam's razor, and the synopsis for every episode of Lost.  He also has performed the modern miracle of helping many high school students pass US History...................................................except for the time Washington defeated Han Solo in the Battle of Gettysburg[citation needed].

Most 3D devices project pictures onto a 2D screen making the picture appear 3D through an optical illusion. This device has the potential to show images in mid-air and enabling 3D objects to be viewed naturally.

Conan in NYC All Week

It's so great to see Conan O'Brien back in NYC.  Doing his show at the famed Beacon Theater to a full capacity crowd, it seems like Conan never left for the doomed Tonight Show stint in LA.  It's vintage Conan with the remote comedy sketches, which is what I, like many other fans of the old Late Night Show have missed immensely.  His show airs on TBS at 11 PM/10 PM Central (I think?). Coming upon the halfway point for his visit to NYC   (note  :,(     ) , here are some highlights...
