Pirate vs. Ninja
I realized it had been a while since I updated my geek wardrobe. To that end I went out on the web looking for items that might be suitable to cover myself with against the elements. I ended up on ThinkGeek and discovered they had one of the best gimmicks I have seen in a long time.
I present to you...pirate vs. ninja batteries.
It's utterly brilliant. If you're a fan of this famous internet-and-geek debate you can also power your flashlight, your remote control or even your vibrator with these babies! And the whole time you can sit there and laugh in your geeky glory at the subtle little inside joke going on in your favorite alkaline-dependant device.
I've seen bumper stickers and T-shirts. This is an awesome idea for a product and it sort of helps revive the whole debate, which I've seen starting to lag the way LOLcats should start to any day now. (Or at least I hope so.)
By the way...ninjas are cooler. Don't bother arguing it. Stealth and shuriken will win out over a parrot, an eye patch and a hook-hand ANY day.
