Hey Folks!

Welcome friends to the latest version of the ThinkGeek newsletter. Please refrain from hyper-ventilating. We recommend that you read this email in a well ventilated area and that you take several deep breaths before proceeding. Please also keep your hands at your sides at all times while reading.

The ThinkGeek T-Shirt Grab Bag

The ThinkGeek T-Shirt Grab Bag

It's Our Economic Stimulus Plan!

In these tough economic times, it's important to remember the necessities: water, food, shelter, and clothing. To solve the clothing portion of the equation, we can provide you with cheap, hip t-shirts to solve your closet's economic woes. And if your order comes in a cardboard box, you may have shelter covered, too. Bonus.

What do you get when you take a spin on the grab bag? You'll get a genuine ThinkGeek-made shirt that, for one reason or another, we didn't sell in the normal course of ThinkGeek events. All of the shirts are high quality - not defective or seconds. From time to time, there may even be a stray polo shirt, work shirt, or hoodie in the grab bag, but you'll never know and neither will we so don't ask! ;) We start off with both men's and women's selections in all sizes, but once they're gone, they're gone, so shop now...

Bacteria Growth Science Kit - Grow Some Smelly Friends

Here's a little movie trivia for you: Tony Montana from the movie Scarface never really wanted to be a drug pusher. He really wanted to be a microbiologist. He wanted to culture bacteria and test its responsiveness to UV light and antibiotics and the like. And now your children can follow in Tony's footsteps. This kit has tons of supplies for your little bacteria farms (aka kids) to use and explore. Then, when they have petri dishes full of bacteria, your children can utter Tony's famous words, "Say hello to my little friends." Hey, thanks for reading through to the punch line.

Mimo Mini USB Monitor - Help Your Monitor Help Itself

Mimo Mini USB Monitor - Help Your Monitor Help Itself

A single USB connection from your computer gets you an instant high-resolution secondary display. This handy display is perfect for your IM client, widgets, PC gaming tools, your email, a spreadsheet, your PhotoShop tools, or even video.

Horror Movie Shower Curtain and Bath Mat - Creep Up Your Bathroom

The clock ticks ever louder. The falling water of the shower beats an incongruous rhythm, giving you goose bumps. You enter your shower and lightning flashes. Suddenly you see the horror. Past the "bloody" hand prints on the shower curtain and the "bloody" foot prints on the bath mat - someone has left the cap off the toothpaste. AAAAAAAAAAAAA! And chocolate syrup flows down the drain. Seriously, these two bathroom accessories will give all your visitors chills, and add some fun to your boring, way too normal-looking bathroom. Norman would be proud.

Edible Wild Hibiscus Flowers - Delicious "Alien" Garnish

On planet Koozebane, there live strange beasts. And those strange beasts eat strange plants (and sometimes, let's face it, each other). By taking great care, we've managed to secure a steady supply of these "Hi-bis-cus" flowers for your culinary enjoyment. They are great as other-worldly garnishes for desserts and main courses, appetizers and snacks.

Star Trek Enterprise 1701-D - Picard's Pretty Lady

From her maiden voyage, we knew that the 1701-D was a special ship. She dwarfed all others; and while she glided smoothly through space, we knew she was fully ready and capable for a fight. And then the saucer section separated, and we all went, "ooOOoo!" Now, finally, we have a ship replica worthy of her majesty. It's big (about 17" long) and has TV show/movie accurate lights and sound effects. And not only does the saucer separate, but this toy knows it's separating and Captain Picard warns the crew to prepare for separation! It's like two toys in one. Engage, make it so, and the sky's the limit!
