Happy Birthday, Captain Tightpants!

It's Nathan Fillion's birthday, and we couldn't let it pass us by without giving him a shout out for being one of our favorite actors and also a great human being. Proof? This year again for his birthday, he asks that you donate to My Charity Water. In return for a $10 donation you get the knowledge that you've given children safe drinking water and a chance to sit down for a meal with him. But if you click, be sure to come back to the newsletter, or you'll miss all the cool new stuff, such as...

Insect In Amber - Hold history in your hand

If your images were on you'd see Insect In Amber - Hold history in your hand

This little specimen is a tiny piece of Earth's history preserved. This amber is from the Oligocene period, which puts it somewhere between 33 and 23 million years old. It comes in a 1" square acrylic box with a magnifying lid so you can more clearly see the insect trapped inside. Since this is from the Dominican Republic, it's likely to be a small fly, gnat, midge, ant, stingless bee or beetle. None of which contain any dinosaur blood and/or DNA, so you're going to have to put your awesome idea for a themepark on hold.

Superman Diaper Bag - Baby of Steel

If your images were on you'd see Superman Diaper Bag - Baby of Steel

Your standard diaper bag is best described as "cute." Pastel with polka dots and whatnot. And although that look may work fine for your little one, it probably doesn't really work for you. That's where this Superman Diaper Bag steps in, fortunately. Apparently, you can have super strength, but that doesn't necessarily mean you can carry everything. Messenger-bag style, this tote comes with a changing pad decorated with a comic book sound effect ("WHAP!") and Superman's insignia repeated plus a burp cloth that looks like a tiny red cape. Swing the bag over your shoulder before you hit the streets of Metropolis and you and your tiny super one will be ready to dole out justice to evildoers or at least dole out Cheerios in an emergency.

New Titanfall Peripherals - Make your whole team better

If your images were on you'd see New Titanfall Peripherals - Make your whole team better

Here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ, when we really love a game, we tend to optimize our rig for it. New graphics cards. Dedicated peripherals. If it makes us better, we go for it. But before now, that just made us better. We play some multiplayer, but we also do a lot of campaign-focused soloing. With Titanfall's focus solely on multiplayer, dedicated peripherals make your whole team better. If your responsiveness is better, you're the player folks want to team with. And with so much 6v6 going on, we don't want our presence to slow anybody down. So we're opting for some Titanfall peripherals, because we are not about to be the last kid picked for the team. Check out the new R.A.T. 3 Mouse, S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 Keyboard, and F.R.E.Q. 4D Stereo Headset, all optimized for use with Titanfall.

Borderlands Gentlemen Caller Claptrap - 'stache Your Loot

If your images were on you'd see Borderlands Gentlemen Caller Claptrap - 'stache Your Loot

Following the explosion of priceless material from vaults all around the galaxy, Claptrap has assured us that his minion, you, would pay the full price for his overly eccentric and lavish body upgrades with mountains of eridium! Without verification of impending payment, we will presume you have absolutely no desire to retrieve Claptrap. He will be broken down for parts and his processors incinerated to ensure his AI personality does not replicate or spread to any other sentient prone machines. We also presume you've already read this and have decided to go with the latter, thus incineration has been scheduled 7 to 10 days from 8 days ago. Please reply if you have decided otherwise.

Blobfish Plush - Grumpy Cat of the sea

If your images were on you'd see Blobfish Plush - Grumpy Cat of the sea

It seems unfair to vote Blobfish as "the world's ugliest animal" based on what they look like when we dredge them up from their natural habitat, over 2,000 feet underwater. It doesn't look like this at its proper depth. So we're going to call this Blobfish, proper name Psychrolutes marcidus, "cute." That's the least we can do after pulling it up half a mile from its home and pointing and laughing at it. After all that maybe it could use a little hug? Part of the reason it ends up looking all sad and floppy is because it doesn't really have any muscle, and after a long weekend of binging on Netflix TV series, we can relate. Come over here, little guy, and sit on the couch with us.

Kids' Zipline Outdoor Fun - You guys, it's a ZIPLINE.

If your images were on you'd see Kids' Zipline Outdoor Fun - You guys, it's a ZIPLINE.

Because who doesn't want a zipline? Ziplines are one of the good things about being outside, and now you can put one in your backyard. Designed for ages 7+ and able to hold up to 250 lbs., this 90 ft. long zipline comes with a removable seat and a break that brings the rider to a comfortable, gradual stop. We would hang ours between the board room and the printer for quick handout delivery, except for the slight problem that you're supposed to zip over grass for your safety and we don't have a 12" diameter tree in the kitchen or the conference room. Currently.

Walking Dead Fish Tank Fleece Blanket - Get a head in life

If your images were on you'd see Walking Dead Fish Tank Fleece Blanket - Get a head in life

There's really not much we can say about this fleece without giving away spoilers (albeit from several seasons ago). And it's such a WTF!? moment when it occurs on screen; we don't want to take that from anyone. So we'll just say that you should probably keep this fleece behind a locked door. Some collections are best kept private.

Gun Shot and Knuckle Shot Glasses - Literal shot glasses

If your images were on you'd see Gun Shot and Knuckle Shot Glasses - Literal shot glasses

These mugs are threatening... if you're a squirrel. A gun grip and brass knuckles can only be so threatening when they're actually too small for the wielder to grip as originally intended. But much like the Noisy Cricket from MIB, these little weapons pack a punch. These tiny black mugs with handles that look like a gun grip and brass knuckles hold 2 oz. of whatever you're jonesing for. Fill them with a shot of your favorite rum, tequila, or even espresso. Just don't have too many of any of the above or you may rack up the new fastest KO time.

Pro Tech Precision Screwdriver Set - Have just the thing for that

If your images were on you'd see Pro Tech Precision Screwdriver Set - Have just the thing for that

We love bit driver kits. The only problem is that we're disorganized, which means it's better just to have a screwdriver for each thing. This Pro Tech Precision Screwdriver Set has 15 individual screwdrivers, each with SVCM (Silicon, Vanadium, Chrome, Magnesium) steel shafts. iFixit estimates that these screwdrivers will cover 90% of electronics repairs, and they'd know since they make a point of taking apart every new piece of technology that comes out. (Including the iPhone 5-Point Pentalobe P2 Screwdriver.) Engineers after our own hearts, they are.

Classic Console USB Controllers - Travel back in time

If your images were on you'd see Classic Console USB Controllers - Travel back in time

There's just something about those classic games. Sonic. Galaxian. Super Mario Bros. 3. Jimmy Neutron. 007: Golden Eye. Super Mario World. But now we have emulators, which allow gamers to mimic their old systems on their modern computers and fall in love with their favorite games all over again. Jabbing at the keyboard just isn't the same as that old Fire button. But you can get that same feeling again with these old-school controllers. Each connects to your PC or Mac with a USB cable and lets you play your favorite games again. Choose Atari, Gamecube, Genesis 6-button, N64, NES, or SNES.

Supply Drop No. U1 - USB Gadgets - USB all that you can be

If your images were on you'd see Supply Drop No. U1 - USB Gadgets - USB all that you can be

Your USB ports are lonely. They told us. They have so much potential, and for what? A thumb drive every once in a while? A quick hookup with your camera once in a blue moon? Face it. You're wasting them. We'd like to suggest you waste them entirely differently - on fun things for yourself. A soda chiller/warmer. A humidifier. A plasma ball. A programmable LED board. You don't need any of these things. But your USB ports do. Do it for them. *sniff*
