and many of 'em turn into geeks!
Well, if you're stuck for what to buy a geek this Xmas, try ThinkGeek.
This website is chocka with the weird and wonderful, for those among us who are themselves weird and...er...wonderful.
For example, here's the perfect gift for entomophagists: an Edible Bugs gift pack! Let's face it: bugs are all around us. They suck our
blood, invade our houses, scare people. So bite 'em before they bite you!
Around the world, many people eat insects - and many think eating insects is the thing of the future. They're healthy, abundant, and quite yummy - especially when they're seasoned.
Time to share those bugs, with this Edible Bugs Gift Pack. Six tins of flavoured and cooked bugs, plus one tin of giant waterbug chilli paste! For eating. Really! Why hold back from the taste of Sour Cream and Onion Dung Beetles? How about Bacon and Cheese Grasshoppers? BBQ Bamboo Worms, or Salted Queen Weaver Ants? And just US$39.99.
But if that's all just a tad too weird for your resident weirdo, ThinkGeek can tempt your geekazoid with logo-emblazoned Star Trek socks, a 'World Of Warcraft' Trivial Pursuit game, Canned Unicorn Meat (500gm of delicious unicorn meat from a small independent cannery in County Meath, Ireland)... and how could any left-minded galactically-fixated geek resist Astronaut Ice Cream? It's freeze-dried ice cream in three flavours (great for the survivalist with a sweet tooth!), and can be stored (unopened) for up to 3 years.
Geek goodies for everyone this Xmas! Ho-ho-ho!
