Surfing the bioluminescent red tide in San Diego
InsideOut Martini Glass
"Much easier to hold than a standard martini glass as this version requires no balancing act. Also, your drink won't warm as fast as it would in a normal martini glass as you are not touching it at all — and if you really want it cold, chill the glass in the freezer."
"Glasses are hand made and hold about 4.5 ounces + a couple olives (120 ml)."
Set of two: €45.
New York States of Mind
"The population of New York City equals that of five entire states."

Facebook voicemails from my mom
Magic Geek Ball
"Ask any yes-or-no question and it will respond with an answer like "Can Has," "Fail," Meh," "LOL," or any of 16 others.

The way we like it.
Fair warning: there goes the day.
Caption for "Tourist Go Home," the 1959 short up top: "Hospitality is making your guests feel at home, even though you wish they were. Take a humorous look at the Canadian tourist industry with this 1959 short that illustrates, in tongue-and-cheek fashion, what not to do to tourists."
