Which brings us to here

We've had a very James Burke's Connections kind of week. On this day in 1868, William Davis patented the refrigerator train car, a big step in transporting perishable goods. Earlier we were reading an article about the unlikely extinction 100 years ago of the passenger pigeon and how the development of the refrigerated train car hastened its demise. Based on how Connections works, we think Timmy may be about to develop gunpowder or stumble upon penicillin. Or maybe just create some really cool light-up shoes.

Firefly Inevitable Betrayal Dinosaurs with Sound - This is a fertile land and we will thrive

If your images were on you'd see Firefly Inevitable Betrayal Dinosaurs with Sound - This is a fertile land and we will thrive

These two dinosaurs may look familiar. That's cause they, along with their handler, Wash, are the stars of the the pilot episode of Firefly. The show may be long gone (*sniff*), but ThinkGeek has brought this Stegosaurus and his theropod "friend" together again for a reunion tour. Hold one in each hand and squeeze the dinosaurs' torsos in turn to recreate the moment in Alan Tudyk's own voice. You know, if all operating instructions had the words "Starting with the Stegosaurus" in them, more people would read them. We're just sayin'.

Doctor Who Shower Rack - A ThinkGeek creation & exclusive

If your images were on you'd see Doctor Who Shower Rack - A ThinkGeek creation & exclusive

Free up some of the limited space in your bathroom by adding this Doctor Who Shower Caddy to the mix. It's designed to wrangle the stuff that normally teeters precariously across various ledges in the shower area. It loops over your showerhead to provide additional space for your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, razor, rubber duckie with a fez, and various other bathtime necessities. Perfect for bathrooms which are smaller on the inside (which is basically all of them).

Star Wars Character Cases For iPhone 5 - Give your phone some character

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars Character Cases For iPhone 5 - Give your phone some character

Think of a character you disliked in the original Star Wars trilogy. It's hard, right? The good guys are good, but not too good. The bad guys are good. Even the characters who just get moments of screen time are worthy of fandom. Maybe that's why the audience reacted so violently to Jar Jar. Wait! No, come back! We're not going to talk about He Who Must Not Be Named, because these character cases are all from the original trilogy. We promise. Choose C3PO, Chewbacca (complete with fur and integrated bandolier), Darth Vader, or R2-D2.

Catbug Backpack - Sugar peas!

If your images were on you'd see Catbug Backpack - Sugar peas!

Like Catbug, we also like to throw a blanket over our problems to make them go away. The printer permanently looks like it's in somebody's grandmother's sitting room. Bring Catbug from the Bravest Warriors with you wherever you go with this plush backpack that makes it look like Catbug is hugging you or hitching a ride. Potential bonus: maybe if he's attached to you you'll get to jump to the See-Through Zone, too? We can't make any promises.

If your images were on you'd see 3D Unicorn Mug - Add the magic back to your mornings

It's no secret that those of us here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ are, for the most part, not morning people. We could all use something to add a little more magic to our mornings - something like this Unicorn Mug, which is a ThinkGeek creation and exclusive. Featuring a unicorn, blue skies, and a rainbow, it holds 13 oz. of whatever makes you happy, whether that's coffee, hot cocoa, or the blood of your enemies Mountain Dew.

Ninja Mug - To Perk up Silent Assassins

If your images were on you'd see Ninja Mug - To Perk up Silent Assassins

Dressing up like an ordinary ceramic mug is the perfect disguise to infiltrate any workplace. Accidently leave this Ceramic Ninja Mug on your boss's desk, in your co-worker cubicle, or at your significant other's house, and it will gather vital intel on the terrain, communication, and coffee and tea-drinking habits of the inhabitants. It comes with a removable sleeve (with a cutout for the eyes) and a shuriken coaster. Just drop in your sugar and cream, and stir things up with the included ninja sword. Unless you like it black, like our little ninja friend here.

The Other Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver from "The Day of The Doctor" - Same software, different face

If your images were on you'd see The Other Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver from "The Day of The Doctor" - Same software, different face

Spoiler alert: We're about to talk about the 50th Anniversary episode, 'The Day of the Doctor.' We'll have to admit: seeing three Sonic Screwdrivers together during "Day of the Doctor" was pretty epic. The War Doctor's Sonic seems fitting. It's spare and sleek, not so much like The Doctor it was made for, but similar in tone to his avowed purpose. The War Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver features 4 authentic sound effects and a light-up amber/red diode. Use it (along with the 10th and 11th Doctors' Sonics) to create a Dalek force field. Note: Force field function not guaranteed.

The fate of the entire galaxy is on the line. The Alliance and the Reapers and Cerberus are all fighting for control. And that's the war you'll play in Mass Effect Risk. Choose your faction, gather all your little playing pieces, and get ready for war! Plus, you get to play in three different gaming modes. There's "Basic Training," which is standard RISK game play. Then there's "Galaxy at War," a fast-paced and strategic game with individual and team play. And if you're in a hurry, try "War Assets;" a quick card and dice game. Mass Effect Risk - this time, your game decisions really WILL affect the outcome. ZING!

Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson - Steve's father

If your images were on you'd see Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus

Long, long ago (not that long) in a galaxy far, far away (actually, in the one we're in right now), a person was born who would one day change the way people commute into big cities. That person is not who this book is about. The Persson this book is about goes by the handle of Notch, and he's the wonderful brain behind the game Minecraft. And in one easy to carry volume, you'll get his life story. It's a story of unlikely success, fast money, and the power of digital technology to rattle an empire. And it is about creation, exclusion, and the feeling of not fitting in. Plus, this English edition has pictures!! Everything is better with pictures.

Bloodpool Pillow - Do not disturb - already disturbed enough

If your images were on you'd see Bloodpool Pillow - Do not disturb - already disturbed enough

The secret to napping at your desk is making it so that no one disturbs you, and with this pillow, we can help you make that happen. In fact, because of the bystander effect, the more humans are around, the less likely you are to be disturbed while sleeping on this pillow. You see, it gives the impression that you've got a massive headwound, with blood puddling under you. And surely somebody else must have noticed before now and told HR or called an ambulance or something, right? Bonus: it's made from super-soft polyester fabric, so it's just the right amount of snuggly for that afternoon nap.
