What is it?


Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: smaller than a bread box.

Another: no animals were harmed in its design or production.

A third: with 100% certainty Diana Adams will buy one as soon as she finds out what it is and does.

Ostrich Pillow (Light)


If you thought the original iteration was a bit over the top,


then perhaps this toned down version will be more to your liking.

"Astimagtismo" — Nicolai Troshinsky

YouTube caption: "A boy, having lost his glasses, can only see one thing in focus at a time. His sight gets attracted by the sounds that surround him. He will have to explore a blurry world of unknown places and strange characters."

Find X T-Shirt


I can't explain why this shirt cracks me up but it really does.

Likely it's the smartypants Steve Martin-esque tilt of its punch line.

I dunno.

A dusting of snow, two deer, and one Gray Cat — through Google Glass

Saturday morning revealed a smattering of whiteness outdoors, where it was a brisk 30°.

Second Glance: SodaStream's latest looks remarkably like an '80s brick cellphone


Am I right or am I right?

From Wired: "Fans of bubbly water swear by SodaStream's do-it-yourself system. The latest version [the Source] has been fully reimagined by design boss Yves Behar.... It boasts a refashioned bottle, and you can dial in your desired level of fizziness via the LED interface."

Below, the 1983 Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, the world's first commercial handheld cellular phone.


It weighed 1.75 pounds, stood 13 inches high, stored 30 numbers, took 10 hours to recharge, and cost $3,995.

That's $9,400 in 2013 dollars.

But I digressed.

The SodaStream Source pictured up top is a mere snip at $129.95.

The Drop Catch is a smart way to keep from finding bottle caps all over your place after a party.

Just mount it on your wall and when you use it to pop open a bottle the embedded magnet catches it.

A perfect addition to any kitchen or home bar area.

Features and Details:

• 60 pounds of pull force

• Holds 52 bottle caps

• Hand made in U.S.

• Finished with linseed oil


Wheat (light) or Porter (dark): $62 (drinks not included).

Stephen Colbert in the mid-80s


From celebs.answers.com: "Before he won our hearts as the ruthlessly clever host of 'The Colbert Report,' Stephen was a slightly reclusive young man who loved playing dungeons and dragons. As a student at Northwestern University, Colbert began doing improv comedy at Second City in Chicago where he made a name for himself. The comedian became a frequent contributor to 'The Daily Show' and eventually landed his own show on Comedy Central."

Colbert turns 50 next year.
