    The Workaholic Pillow Book isn't so much a book as a bound pillow. A $62 bound pillow. Still, if your boss is stupid enough to think you're reading when you're actually asleep at your desk, I want your job. You have a designated parking spot, right? Well I think I just back... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO scene constructed in the form of a pop-up book. It's absolutely amazing and has a giant pagoda that folds together in the middle. I couldn't even imagine building something so impressive so I'm just going to hang my head in shame and cry into this pile of DUPLO... / Continue →

    This is a massive gallery of chicks with Twilight tattoos. Because Twilight is like the female equivalent of blowing shit up with fireworks for a guy. Most of the tattoos are quotes and the book cover art. This one about the lion falling in love with the lamb seems to be par... / Continue →

    This is the $29 Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual for all the vehicles and equipment used during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. I'm still gonna pick up a copy, despite deciding to build my own rocketship for scratch (I'm hoping for pointers on seducing moon-women). On 20 J... / Continue →
