    This is the $20 Mitten Flask. It's a pair of mittens with a 3-ounce (5-ounces too small) flexible flask hidden inside the palm of the left-hand mitten, with a bite-valve at the thumb. That sucks because 1. I'm left-handed and would prefer the flask be in the right mitten, whi... / Continue →

    Remember world-class performance artist Sara X's Mozart inspired breast dance? Well now she's back for the holidays with a titillating performance of Jingle Bells. I think we can all agree, it's just about as perfect as a video can be without being the trailer for that new Ju... / Continue →

    This is the $40 fallen AT-AT lawn ornament being sold by ThinkGeek. It would look perfect covered with a light dusting of snow, invisible after a heavy snowstorm, and entirely out of place in the summer. You might want to keep that in mind when you're making your purchasing d... / Continue →

    For the past couple years Anthony Herrera has designed a new series of do-it-yourself Star Wars paper snowflakes for you to cut and out and decorate your home/office/cubicle (previous posts with a ton of other designs HERE and HERE). And these are this year's batch, including ... / Continue →

    This is the video of James Nolastname and his father rescuing two deer stranded in the middle of Albert Lea Lake in Minnesota. How the deer managed to get that far out in the first place is beyond me. Apparently the father/son team managed to rescue three deer that day. And,... / Continue →

    This is what it looks like to shoot boiling water out of a Super Soaker in -41°C (-41.8°F) temperatures. I'm sorry, but that is just too f***ing cold. Any of you live in places that get that cold? Here's what I want you to do. Look outside. What do you see? "Snow." Anyth... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of the different geometric patterns created by artist Simon Beck marching around in the snow of France. How he knows what the design he's creating will look like from above when he can only see it at ground-level is beyond me, but I suspect he does the same t... / Continue →

    This is the alien facehugger winter mask hand-knit and sold by Etsy seller Knitrocious ($150). It looks pretty accurate. Plus nobody will think you're weird for wearing it. And if they do, send them over to my place and I'll answer the door wearing nothing but a gas mask and... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Sweden of ice crystals beginning to form on a soap bubble in -30°C (-22°F) temperatures. Sure it would be cool to do yourself, but the only experiment you'll see me running when it's that f***ing cold is how long I can stay under the covers. Hit th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of tigers destroying snowmen. I heard afterwards they all made snow angels then retired inside by the fire to sip hot cocoa. I'm joking, I don't know what they did after that. Probably licked their privates or whatever the hell else cats do. Truth... / Continue →

    This is designer Aga Brzostek's comfy looking Autumn/Winter Chair. That's a bad name, but a good idea. It's a chair with an integrated sweater blanket cover that you can get into and wrap all around you to stay warm on those cold winter nights. Plus if there's a house fire y... / Continue →

    This is a full-body sweater made for lumberjacks to model in their bathrooms. It buttons up at the top, which is where you have to climb in. It also looks like it has a zipper crotch which is handy because I doubt this thing is pee-proof like those panties we saw earlier. Yo... / Continue →

    SOULFUL PATCH BROBRO. This is a crocheted knight's helmet for sale by Etsy seller HattieHooker. You know, I was friends with a hooker once. She was always asking if I wanted a HJ but I could never tell if she was being serious/if I'd have to pay. That never happened. $40 g... / Continue →

    Hey -- you want a scarf that has all the words from the One Ring on it? Well consider this your lucky day (at least until you see I sideswiped your car in the parking lot and didn't leave a note) because knitter Diana Stafford has got you covered with this DIY pattern. The pa... / Continue →

    This is a $25 Severed Wampa Arm Ice Scraper from ThinkGeek. It looks like a wampa arm, but no wampas were harmed in the making of the product. OR WERE THEY? I could tell you no humans were harmed when I made coffee in the breakroom this morning, but I know for a fact I hurt ... / Continue →

    Seen here after effectively breaking me down and making me to do the impossible (buy a Snuggie), this is a $30 Joker themed blanket-robe from SuperHeroStuff. Mine just came yesterday, and I've been wearing it ever since. Oh, hold on, my roommate wants to talk to me. Yes, Der... / Continue →

    Looking cool is just a bonus. This is Seqinetic, a pair of €59 (~$75) glasses that have six LEDs and a reflector to shoot a comforting white "daylight" spectrum of light around your eyes (but not directly in them) to improve your mood in the long, dark winter months. Me? I j... / Continue →

    This is the $105 Beer Hunter Jacket from skateboarding company Enjoi. It has insulated pockets to keep your beers cold and you warm. Plan on downing a forty? It has a pocket for one. Planning on downing a bunch of wine coolers? *smack* HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT, MAN. I'm jo... / Continue →

    The Klymit Ulaar Jacket is a jacket that has a bunch of air pockets that can be inflated a la Reebok Pumps. Allegedly they help keep you warm, but I couldn't reach my weather wizard on the crystal ball this morning so I have no idea if that's actually true. I think he's busy b... / Continue →
