    So many more cat videos to watch. NEED ENERGY. Caffeine: it's a drug. It's a drug and people want it inside them. Most people drink coffee or energy drinks, some people use caffeinated soap in the shower, and other people wake and bake because they don't give a shit about c... / Continue →

    This is a visual comparison of the caffeine content of some of the most popular coffee brands. Personally, I don't drink any of these, I like to make my own. "You're stirring dirt into a cup with a stick." Is this not how you do it? "Oh no, it totally is." Thought so -- no... / Continue →

    This is the $34 Mario warp pipe coffee mug from Fangamer, the same company that brought us the Mega Man energy tank coffee mug. It makes a great stocking stuffer. Or, should I say, stocking clogger? Get it? Because it's a pipe and sometimes pipes get clogged if you flush to... / Continue →
