Listen to Static

Have you ever wanted to hear what static sounds like?  Ever since the days of analog TV went away, kids now don’t know what static is.  Well, with this device, called an Elkctrosluch, you can listen in to the unique static sounds of electromagnetic radiation all around you.

Now after you listened to that, how soon do you think it will be before some group or person puts out a study confirming that electornics cause cancer, or worse, are secretly causing mind-control?  Seriously, have you heard the strange sounds that your phone produces when you just hold it? It’s mind control.  For sure.

In case you want to decode these mind control signals, it’s not difficult to build, but it does require two of pretty much each part, and some soldering abilities.  Here’s a quick YouTube video showing how to put it together:

The Best Gift Guide

Daniel foster over at PC Fastlane has put together a true Holiday Gift guide for the Geek you know.  And, I must say, I would greatly accept anything on this list, except maybe the shirt, that’s kinda weird, and I don’t think I’d actually wear it.

But some of the other stuff, perfect right up there.

The Optimus Mini 3, I’d take that, hell, I’m supprised I haven’t bought one already for myself.

The Optimus Maximus, damn, is that not on everyone’s list of wanting?

Uranium Ore, get me uranium ore, and you have the key to my heart.  Get me some plutunioum, and I might just marry you.

So if you want to get that speical geek you know something they will truly love you for, take a look at the full list.  Trust me, it’s way better then a 3rd iPod, or a gift card.

The Ice Bullet Conspiracy with a Twist

This takes the whole Ice Bullet idea to new levels.  No longer will people need to make their own molds for their own traceless assassination plots. Just get this fancy ice tray for $15.

For an extra twist, put these Uranium marbles into the ice tray before you freeze it.  This way you have a double effect of the bullet tearing apart the flesh, some radiation poisoning happening too.

Now, there aren’t very manu Uranium glass makers left in the world, so if you want to get away with no trace, then putting the marbles inside would probably not work too well, but it adds a whole nother level of dedicated craziness to your assassination that can only be admired from afar (I am so easily ammused at that pun I just made).

Now, if anyone wants to get me a gift, those Uranium marbles would be good, and the AK-47 bullet ice tray would be good, but get them together, and that would be awesome…I am going to kill myself one day…
