WE’VE GOT YOUR (ATOMIC) NUMBER…

If you’re anything like us monkeys at ThinkGeek, your education about atomic particles evolved in the same order that the different models occurred chronologically. When you’re very, very small and someone shows you a representation of an atom, they show you something that looks like this – the Rutherford model. As you get a little older, maybe 5th or 6th grade, you graduate to the Rutherford-Bohr model. Finally, sometime in high school you’re introduced to the electron cloud model. This is unconfirmed, but a certain copywriter monkey might have possibly burst out in tears (just a little) in the middle of physics class when introduced to this version. Our teachers had already admitted to lying to us intentionally once on this subject. Now we’re to believe they’ve lied to us about the same thing twice? And why? Because they thought we couldn’t wrap our heads around the truth? WTF? Give us the idea. If we can’t integrate it, we promise to fall back on another mental model. Just give us a chance, at least.

Kitchen Nightmares!

On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.

Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.

First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.

Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope

Star Trek Captain’s Tea Set

There’s more to Starfleet than seeking out new life and civilizations. You’ve got to spend time teaching the replicators how to make your favorite homemade foods. It’s also important to bond with the rest of the crew while on shore leave enjoying rays on Risa. And when sipping a nice cuppa back in your cabin, why not do it with a tea set that reminds you of your greater purpose?

Dragon Ball Z Goku Power Level T-Shirt

Goku has gone through a lot of changes since we were first introduced to him in the mid-80s. We saw him grow up for starters. We’ve seen him get stronger by leaps and bounds, all the while taking on everything from armies to a literal god. It took a lot of hard work and training, but let’s be honest, that is what Goku is all about. That and eating copious amounts of food. 50/50 split.
