Nerdtastic Accessory Trifecta

Ancient nerd legend has it that anyone in possession of these three things will have REAL ULTIMATE POWER.

Its a pin. Its a synapse neuron. Sweet.

From now on all my eating and drinking implements will display the chemical structure of their contents.

Pong. Batteries. Shirt. Need I say more?

Those last two came from the ever-awesome ThinkGeek, but the neuron pin came from an amazing site aptly-named Neuromart. Neuromart contains items of such phenomenal nerditude that I died a little inside that I didn’t think of it first. Neuromart, I salute you.

Hat tips to Charlie and darkman.

    Erm WARNING: THE MATERIALS USED AS COLORED DECORATIONS ON THE EXTERIOR OF THIS PRODUCT (CAFFEINE MUG) CONTAIN LEAD AND/OR CADMIUM, CHEMICALS KNOWN TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS OR OTHER REPRODUCTIVE HARM. I think I’d prefer things that were labelled on the exterior with the chemical structure of what’s on the exterior.

    not a synapse… that’s a neuron pin, right? or it could be the most neuron-looking synapse i’ve ever seen.
