SmartNudge

I personally think the toilet seat should be left in the up (vertical) position. I know, I am going against the grain here but hear me out. Guys will be messy pigs guys and would you rather they ‘accidentally’ pee all over the bowl or seat? The last thing you want to do when visiting the bathroom to sit down, is have to clean off a bunch of disgusting sticky urine. If the seat was up, it would be clean and protected. OK, I am done with my rant about that – on to this cool product for the rest of the world who likes pee on seats.

The SmartN?dge, currently a Kickstarter campaign, is simple genius. This little robot runs on four AA batteries and sticks to the toilet lid via adhesive tape. After 90-seconds of the seat being in the up/vertical position it flicks the seat down. This is great for folks who already have a slow-lowering toilet seat. For those who don’t have a slow-lowering toilet seat, they will hear a loud slam shortly after finishing their business in the bathroom.

Yoda Snow Globe

Looking for the most unique gift for the person who has everything, or just want to have an awesome/strange conversation piece on your desk? The Bradford Exchange STAR WARS Jedi Master Yoda Musical Glitter Globe with Lights and Movie Music ($100) fits the bill. It runs off of three AAA batteries and illuminate Yoda and the base while playing music from the movie.

Christmas Tree Delivered

So much for the tradition of hopping in the car, picking a tree, cutting it down, and hauling it home for Christmas. Oh Amazon, you know no boundaries.

This year you can pre-order your Christmas tree from now until November 19th, heck you can even pick between a fraser fir , a balsam fir, or a black hill spruce. Price is about $100 which is more expensive than most local tree farms, but hey, the deliver it to your door!

This is my type of prank. You simply drop off a wonderfully scented candle that smells great for an hour or two of lit time, then it smells really bad. Even the packaging and product keep the secret of what is to come. Get yours here for about $17 with free shipping.

This hand-crafted candle literally starts out smelling like the sweet scent of Apple Pie and turns into Dirty Fart after about an hour or two. This isn’t just a poop scented candle. The top layer smells pleasant & incredible prompting your unsuspecting victim to light it at a dinner party, on a date, when they are relaxing, or any inopportune time to get pranked. Our patented process creates a clear and distinct switch from good to bad scent.
