Banana Slicer Reviews on Amazon.com

Banana Slicer Reviews on Amazon.com

The Amazon Reviews For This Banana Slicer Are The Best Thing On The Internet Today

Amazon sells a banana-shaped banana slicer called the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer.

For some reason that’s better left undiscovered, the user-contributed reviews for the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer on Amazon.com are wonderfully absurd.

You must read them now.

This is no joking matter, you must read them now.

That’s when I found the 571B Banana Slicer. Our marriage has never been healthier, AND we’ve even incorporated it into our lovemaking. THANKS 571B BANANA SLICER!

The New 52 Batgirl Vol 1 Comic

The New 52 Batgirl Vol 1 Comic

Gail Simone is awesome and Syaf and Cifuentes are amazing. This collection has issues 1-6.

Elsewhere:

PS. Gail Simone is important to comics — check out Women in Refrigerators.

…it occurred to me that it’s not that healthy to be a female character in comics.

FUN - Kid’s Spaceship Bed

Old TV panel transforms kid's bed into awesome spaceship

Old TV panel transforms kid’s bed into awesome spaceship

What could be more fun for a little kid than getting to drift off to sleep in your own amazing spaceship? That’s the feeling five year old Finn must get each night, ever since his dad used some old discarded TV broadcast gear to create this fantastic spaceship bed.

The panel is a Grass Valley video switcher, which a friend of Finn’s dad had fished out of a dumpster behind a local TV station. It probably cost the TV station more than the price of a house when it was new, but today it’s apparently worth nothing. Don’t tell that to Jeremiah Gorman, who used the switcher to make the spaceship control panel.

I totally want this, just not as the master bed — I’d never get a wink of sleep.

Don’t judge people based on what you would do.

Pinokio — a Desk Lamp like Pixar’s But Real

tcr! · Dec 27, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Holy Crap, Someone Made a Real-Life Pixar Desk Lamp

Great news for anyone who’s ever dreamed of their boring desk lamp coming to life as their lovable sidekick. Inspired by the animated Luxo lamp that greets moviegoers at the start of every Pixar film, Adam Ben-Dror, Shanshan Zhou, and Joss Doggett created the Pinokio lamp which moves and reacts to its environment with what appears to be genuine emotions.

It’s similar the Pixar’s Luxo Junior but with more awesome.

If you’re not getting what you need from someone, stop needing it.
