I didn't know I needed a Poodle in a Cup but I do, I really do.

I usually have to spend hours looking across various sites for stuff like that. If I was buying presents this year instead of making them, I'd pretty much be set.

Impress your friends and freak out your office mates with your very own USB powered chameleon pet. This little guy perches on your monitor as its eyes rotate, and tongue rolls out at random times. Perfect for scaring away the cute girl in the cubicle down the aisle!

What?

Also absurdly badass is this Facebank.

$500+ for a knife-resistant shirt? I'll take my chances without it. I wonder how many people get up in the morning and get dressed for knife fight.

Understanding sexual dynamics in Japan: it's not only the women who seem stuck at age 11.

The name makes it sound like a major supplier to the Japanese Bukakke porn industry. A place that exploits its workers so badly, they create labour songs to keep their spirits high as they labour to produce the enormous volumes of Giz that are needed just for one film.

For example:

Working in a Gizmine,
Goin' down down down,
Working in a Gizmine,
Whop! about to slip down,
Five o clock in the mornin'
I'm already up and gone,
Lord I am so tired,
I'm gonna need a fluffer to deliver another one...

And then there's...

Stroke, bash,
Sploosh, splash.

That's the sound of the man,
Working at the Gizmine
That's the sound of the man,
Working at the Gizmine
