Today's Reading Assignment

If you've been with ThinkGeek since the beginning, you know Timmy's a fan of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). They, along with tumblr, reddit, and over 5000 other sites, have named today "The Day We Fight Back," in an effort to bring attention to the U.S. congressional bills re: mass surveillance. Take the time today to read up on the FISA Improvements Act and the USA Freedom Act so you know where you stand, because educated masses are the best smart masses.

What's New at ThinkGeek!

Geek Fashion Week '14 - Timmy sez, "Work it!"

If your images were on you'd see Geek Fashion Week '14 - Timmy sez,

Not everybody can make it to New York Fashion Week, and maybe not everybody wants to. Here at ThinkGeek in fabulous Fairfax, Virginia, we've gathered together some of our newest apparel to show our ready-to-wear Spring-Summer-Fall-Winter 2014 collection highlights (because we don't believe in seasonality - you can wear a hoodie to a cold theater in the middle of summer). So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Quite a few people out there who seem to have the proper authority declared 2013 the year of the selfie.

The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die! Party Game - Inigo's game

If your images were on you'd see The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die! Party Game - Inigo's game

You know his name is Inigo, and he knows you ate his MLT (and the mutton was even nice and lean). So, there's only one thing left for you to do: prepare to die! This party game brings all the seriousness of identifying yourself and your reason for killing with the hilarity of the very same names and reasons. What? Ok, so here's an example. The judge of the round throws down a "Hello, my name is . . . " card. It's William Goldman. Then each player picks their funniest "Prepare to die!" card, the judge picks the winner, points are awarded, the players switch roles, and the next round begins. Oh, and what was the winning card? This time, it was "You collected my fingernail clippings. Prepare to die!" Because, that's just ew!

Unbreakable Walking Stick Self Defense Umbrella - Baton of Dryness +1

If your images were on you'd see Unbreakable Walking Stick Self Defense Umbrella - Baton of Dryness +1

The Unbreakable Walking Stick Self Defense Umbrella looks like a regular umbrella. Functions in the same manner you'd expect an umbrella to. Is, for all intents and purposes, an umbrella. It is also a steel pipe in disguise. It's a large blunt weapon that doesn't require precise targeting to be effective. It's a 3 ft. long baton of dryness +1. It's the perfect at home self-defense device. Keep it next to the front door. If zombies break in, whammo, they're going to be surprised when you swing a "harmless" umbrella at them that clocks them like a baseball bat. Or not. They're zombies.

GoT Mini Statues - Ours is the fury

If your images were on you'd see GoT Mini Statues - Ours is the fury

Although they're molded plastic and the right size, these figures are more statue than action figure. With no articulation whatsoever, they work better as your favorite character, captured and frozen in a particular moment. And as such, we think they're the perfect way to memorialize your favorite characters from the HBO series A Game of Thrones before George R.R. Martin goes and kills them off. At just 7 1/2" tall each, you could have a half a dozen and watch him slowly winnow the group down, book by book.

Marvel Comics Retro Backpack - The gang's all here!

If your images were on you'd see Marvel Comics Retro Backpack - The gang's all here!

This looks like the ultimate (lowercase U) Marvel team-up to us. The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine, The Human Torch, Spider-Man, Nightcrawler, Banshee, Colossus, Cyclops, The Silver Surfer... and possibly more that we missed. As a group, they possess superhuman strength and intellect, the ability to cling to improbable surfaces, fly at supersonic speeds, manipulate fire and physical matter, and teleport. If you're a villain, this is not a group you'd want to take on. Using this collection of superheroes to decorate a bag, however, is ... super. With two main zippered sections, this backpack is ready to defend your homework, books, or laptop from the elements, so long as it falls within the guidelines below.

World of Warcraft Journals - Chronicle your adventures

If your images were on you'd see World of Warcraft Journals - Chronicle your adventures

Your WoW adventures are epic; your epicness is grandiose. But in order to be a true epic, it needs to be documented and passed on as lore from generation to generation. These journals are just the things you need to accomplish this task. Each features blank pages (acid free, so you can add your own locutionary vitriol without harming the paper) and a leather-look cover embossed with the faction of your choosing. There's a blue one for the Alliance and a red one for the Horde. Or, because we know you're like us and play multiple characters, you can get the two pack and have one of each to chronicle your exploits in style!

Polaroid Z2300 Digital Instant Print Camera - Instant Gratification

If your images were on you'd see Polaroid Z2300 Digital Instant Print Camera - Instant Gratification

There's something magical about instant photos - we're not talking about pictures that you snap on your phone or your digital camera where the image appears on a pixellated screen. We mean the old instant-photo camera from Polaroid. What if you could have that same feeling with modern technology? What if you could instantly hold a photo in your hand that came from a 10-megapixel digital camera? That's what the Polaroid Z2300 Digital Instant Print Camera is all about. It's got a 6X digital zoom. A 2.5" LCD screen. The printer is right inside, but we should really call it a tiny lightroom instead, because there's no toner or ink involved. It's all part of the development process, housed in the paper itself. It's like today met yesterday.

DC Comics Timepieces - Who watches the watches?

If your images were on you'd see DC Comics Timepieces - Who watches the watches?

In this day and age where every device we own has the time prominently displayed on it and we have an assortment of them on us at all times, watches become less about telling the time and more about making a statement. And the statement these watches make is, "I've got a pull list longer than your arm and long boxes in temperature-controlled storage and don't make me break out the secret identity, because you wouldn't like me when I'm hangry." Choose retro Superman (Action Comics), retro Batman (Detective Comics),or the Batman Studded Watch.

Halo Statue - UNSC-Approved

If your images were on you'd see Halo Statue - UNSC-Approved

Limited to 750, this Master Chief figure features his Mark V Mjolnir combat suit. He's been reimagined for 2011's Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition, but he's still the Master Chief of old you know and love. He comes equipped with the first two weapons accessible to players in the game: the tried-and-true Assault Rifle and the insanely powerful Magnum Pistol (and switch-out arms if either weapon isn't your personal style). Because what we think your interior decoration needs is 2 more feet of awesome.
