Secret Skateboard – For Office Women Under the Table

This right here is a skateboard with style, for the woman skater with an desk job, just waiting to get back on the streets to do some sick 50-50 grinds, but currently filing papers and being a boss in the office.

Angry Birds plush characters announced

Of all the mobile games that I have on my iPad and on the iPhone, my daughter loves Angry Birds the most. The first thing I had to do when the Galaxy Tab came in was add Angry Birds to it as well. The game is a lot of fun, even if it can get frustrating on some levels after you try to beat the stupid pigs a hundred times.

Electric Butterfly in a Jar is not cruel

My Little Pony Soldering Iron Brilliance

One of the dreamers behind this Magical Soldering Unicorn, mister Sean Bonner, said in april of this year that "The value of something like this is pretty obvious." I think he's completely right, and not just in a "OMG THAT IS JUST SUPER" sort of way. Think of all the traffic the site he's working with is getting now, all because of this relatively simple DIY hack on a piece of plastic and metal - together, these bits form an alliance that is truly synergistic.
