    Because beer is best when shared with your bear friends in the woods, this is the ManCan portable keg system (starting at $195). You just pour your beers in, seal it up, and the thing keeps your beers fresh and carbonated (using a tiny CO2 canister) until you're ready to guzzl... / Continue →

    This is the Ideal Conceal Pistol, a $395 pistol being produced this summer that folds up into what looks like a smartphone. It's not a phone though, so you're going to have to find one to call 911 after you accidentally shoot a friend. The Ideal Conceal is a double-barreled .... / Continue →

    This is the $30 Spellbook Billfold/clutch designed and sold by ThinkGeek. It has 'Spellbook' clearly printed on the outside so people don't think it's your wallet and try to steal it. Although, there's probably more than one evil sorcerer who would prefer to get their hands o... / Continue →

    These are the Star Trek TNG Uniform Messenger Bags available from ThinkGeek ($70). They actually look pretty quality. Just don't carry the red one unless you want to get smacked by a bus on the way to work. These Star Trek TNG Uniform Messenger Bags feature the red, blue, an... / Continue →

    These are the handmade cat bags designed and crafted by Pico, a Japanese artist. She only makes one at a time and sells them exclusively on Yahoo Auction Japan, where they go for about $700 apiece. That is not as expensive as I was imagining for such a high quality product. ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Master Splinter trying to make off with an entire slice of cheese pizza in a New York City subway. Or maybe it was a pepperoni slice but he already ate all the meat off and was going to tell the Ninja Turtles all he could scrounge was cheese. Michelan... / Continue →

    This is the $60 R2-D2 Dome Purse available from ThinkGeek (among other places -- shop around!). It looks like R2-D2 and holds things. Not very big things, mind you. Will it be this fall's must-have fashion accessory? I doubt it. Will slap-bracelets and toe rings make a com... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Rocket Raccoon backpack available from ThinkGeek (and possibly other places but I didn't look because you never hired me as your personal shopper even though I think I'd be great at it because we have the same taste. Do you like Watermelon Sour Patch Kids? "YE... / Continue →

    The Dragonscale Handbag of Holding is a $60 handbag available from ThinkGeek. It has 15 pockets for storing a shit-ton of stuff, a faux dragonscale exterior (actually vegan leather) and a zipper pull that looks like a D20. That is probably the nicest thing about it. The nice... / Continue →

    This is the $60 Captain America Shield Backpack available from ThinkGeek. It looks like Captain America's Shield, has a padded laptop/tablet pocket, and a hard plastic exterior. Speaking of backpacks -- is it still cool to only wear your backpack on one shoulder? Because w... / Continue →

    This is the felt R2-D2 purse made and sold by Etsy shop krukrustudio ($185). It measures 17-inches (~43-cm) tall and 7.5-inches (~19-cm) in diameter and is even lined with what appear to be blueprints from the Death Star. I felt(!) like that was a nice touch. Remember when ... / Continue →

    This is a video of German waiter Oliver Struempfel carrying 27 one-liter mugs 40-meters to clench the world record for beer carrying. Impressive, but I once rolled a keg into a friend's house SINGLE-HANDED. Well, I used both hands, but I did it all by myself. That was a grea... / Continue →

    This is the plush octopus backpack made by Tumblr-er Jennifer Mones. I'm not sure how it was made, but presumably out of an existing octopus plush toy. I made a Cabbage Patch backpack like that once. Well, it wasn't so much a backpack as one of my little sister's Cabbage Pa... / Continue →

    Raise your hand if you've shit yourself in the past month. I have not (although if I had said two months it would be different). I've had lots of SCARES (mostly farts that turned evil at the end), but no real accidents. Enter UrbanUndercover (currently a nearly-funded Kickst... / Continue →

    These are the line of Nintendo cartridge flasks that Matt Cornell of Ink Whiskey LLC designed. They're currently a Kickstarter project but have already met their funding goal so paying up will guarantee a flask when they ship around March of next year. $15 will get you a Drun... / Continue →
