Recommended by sciencegeek on Oct 31, 2008

In honour of this weekend's NYC Marathon, here's a shirt which summarizes how I feel about running.

"you should try running a marathon"
"you should try sticking knives into your eyes"

Cotton shopping totes in vintage handbag prints. The explosion in reusable bags to carry your groceries has generated some really great bags and these are among my favorites.

I've found that this sort of bag makes a great gift - the initial cost of purchase can be somewhat off putting for your friend who is used to getting free plastic bags at the store. If you buy him or her a bag like this, you've removed that barrier and have allowed him/her to boldly go into the green future.

Witty ... that's the word I was looking for to describe these bags. (via Poppy)

Strictly Ballroom

Recommended by sciencegeek on Feb 28, 2007

A cross between comedy, documentary and romance. If you tell your friends that they'll love a movie about ballroom dancing they may give you that look which is reserved for the times when you suggest playing doctor slalom in the hospital (in which you yell "Doctor Slalom!" and then run as fast as you can weaving through the clouds of doctors who tend to just stand in the middle of the hallway).

This is a marvelous satire on the ballroom dance community. You'll recognize (from flipping channels through PBS on the weekend) those insane costumes, tortured expressions of passion from tango competitions, and total obsession with a world of polyester and feather boas. Somewhat similar in spirit to Best In Show.

It is even viewable by men.

Piled Higher and Deeper: comic and comic book

Piled Higher and Deeper is an online comic strip about being a graduate student in the sciences. One of those incredibly funny and incredibly insightful comics that I keep sending to my science and non-science friends - to laugh at ourselves or to explain myself respectively.

The guy who does these, Jorge Cham, has published two books of this now, they are worth picking up. They are the perfect gift to your friend who is just starting graduate school.

The Douche Card

Recommended by sciencegeek on Dec 22, 2006

We've all been in this situation: in a bar, at a meeting, in line at the cash register, on the elevator, on a date, and someone is being an idiot. Now you can let them know.

Give them the douche card. Much like a yellow or red card, it conveys its message succinctly, although in this case you might want to run after handing it out.
