40 MINUTES

Did you hear “Mars Time” from AirSpace, the podcast from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, down the street from ThinkGeek World Domination HQ? If you missed it, it was about how trying to keep your body synced to a Mars day, 40 minutes longer than an Earth’s Day, wreaks havoc on your naturally circadian body. Apparently beanbag chairs and ice cream makes it better. That’s pretty much true for anything, honestly.

This watch celebrates the glory that is the red planet, but it’s a standard Earth watch so as not to mess with your head. The Mars Orbit watch has 3-hand movement, with Phobos as the minute hand, Deimos as the hour indicator, and a little rover as the second hand. (At least we think that’s how they line up based on which one orbits closer to the planet. The inside one is the minute hand, which should be obvious after a a few minutes.) Does not include life and / or any Earth-shattering kabooms.

Pitfall! Atari Cartridge Throw Blanket

The original Pitfall! was a blast to play, but the time limit of 20 minutes (while challenging) made us crave more! If only there was a way to blanket ourselves in that nostalgic joy for longer than 20 minutes.

Magic the Gathering Planeswalker Backpack

Wandering the magical realms can be exhausting, especially when you have to carry so many magical artifacts. We really need access to some sort of pocket dimension. That might be excessive though. Maybe something small and portable. Is there such a thing that exists? A device for holding things? Oh yeah. A bag!

X-Men Xavier Institute Crest Hat

So, you know how there are different X-Men teams? Obviously, the most powerful mutants go on the A Team, and then the next powerful group is the B Team, etc. Well, when we went to the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, they put us on the Z Team. We were the mutants who basically went to the institute to learn. And while the other students got costumes and access to jets… we got to study. At least we got this awesome hat though.
