The decomposition book looks just like the composition book, but it’s way cooler. It’s made from one hunded percent post-consumer recycled paper and produced with a little help from biogas, which comes from … wait for it … decaying matter.
ThinkGeek has gone and done what many never imagined and few ever accomplished: improved one of humankind’s most genius inventions – the candle. Yes, their skull-shaped candle, which drips red wax out of the eye socket as it burns, is quite possibly the awesomest candle ever. And reasonably priced as well. Happy Halloween!
If you really want to be hands-on in the upbringing of your child, why not design his/her toys yourself? Which is what computer programmer and geeky dad, Jonathan M. Gruberman, did for his son. He created a set of alphabet blocks, ingrained with pop culture references the kid can grow up with. In this exclusive interview, we asked him more about his cool parenting style and got a behind-the-scenes look (read?) of how the alphabet blocks came to be. [Read our original post about these blocks here]
Geek dads and geek-dads-to-be, rejoice for we have found a way to educate our sons and daughters to be just like us. Computer programmer and bioinformatician Jonathan M. Gruberman decided to be really hands on in the upbringing and education of his newborn son. So together with the missus (she insisted cats are a must in the blocks), they created a set of alphabet blocks, ingrained with the iconic images of things they wanted to share with their child.
If you think your packed lunches are boring and dull, take some lessons from stay-at-home-mom-turned-Bento-artist Samantha Lee. In 2008, she started making food art to encourage her daughter to eat independently while mommy tends to her little sister. Samantha says that she did not have any professional culinary training and she used only knives and scissors to cut up ingredients for her dishes.
If you’re the sort who’s a bit of a control freak about how every single stalk of celery that lands on your chopping board always has to be the same exact length, we found an OCD Chef cutting board in the Think Geek store and thought you might like it. Why? It comes with measurements […]
Maybe we’re just too cool for new school. Maybe we’re just tired of getting motion sickness in a perfectly still, motionless cinema hall. Yes, 3D movies make us want to throw up, and Think Geek has these marvellous 2D glasses with radial polarised optics that show just the right eye image to both eyes, so the 3D effect never has to destroy your moviegoing experience. Of course, you could simply go to a 2D movie screening instead. But you know, at least you have options.
In the food world, Sriracha Rooster Sauce is the must-have accessory du jour. This king of condiments kicks up any dish with its chilies and garlic ground into a smooth paste and tucked into an all too convenient squeeze bottle. It can – and does – go on just about everything, from cocktails to barbecue. And […]
So, that Batman guy. He fights crime, zips around in a Batmobile and lives the high-flying life as billionaire Bruce Wayne when he’s not all caped up. No reason why he can’t guard our hard-earned money as well. The Batman money clip by Think Geek — essentially a matte black rubberised batarang that folds — will see that you never lose these cash wads in a fist fight.
Think Geek is singularly responsible for providing me with all my post-peak-oil needs, such as this Swedish FireSteel — a sort of compact flint that you can keep on your keychain — that can be used to light campfires, gas stoves, and grills without the use of electricty.

I am so excited for Ghostbusters III. It comes out in 2012, just before the world ends. The folks over at Think Geek have these awesome caffeinated Stay Puft marshmallows. Genius. Let’s wrap this earth party up proper.
Be careful what you wish for. Or, in this case, what you open! Evil Fortune Cookies by Think Geek actually hate you. With a combination of rude, insulting and hilarious messages hidden inside, they come packaged in a ten pack take-out box to ruin your Chinese dinner nights. At the same time, the box is […]
We recently posted about ThinkGeek’s meaty April Fools Joke: Fake Unicorn Meat. Well, it seems not everyone found it quite as amusing as we — and, evidently, you — did. As our friends at URLesque have noted, the National Pork Board have sent ThinkGeek a cease and desist letter. Read it in full after the jump.
