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.

Hold on a second while we get our gigantic Gameboy Classic out and reflect on the original Pokémon games. Back in the “old days,” there were only three Eeveelutions, and at the time we thought that was a lot. But now there are so many adorable options, we just can’t choose. We must have them all.  

Marvel Infinity Gauntlet Heat Change Mug

There’s nothing like watching that sweet waterfall of delicious, warm coffee fill up your favorite mug in the morning.

Imagine, if you will, the power coffee holds over your morning. Now picture what it’d be like to drink coffee from the Infinity Gauntlet – the strongest source of power in the universe meets the strongest source of power on Earth… and the power is yours to control.  

Game of Thrones House Stark Pint Glass

What a loaded comment to make, Arya. That sounds like it’s foreshadowing something. But surely the youngest Stark child couldn’t possibly be threatening some sort of revenge. No, not young Arya.
