Earlier in the month I posted Five Great Gift Ideas For Geeks, and while I was browsing the Internets during lunch looking for gift ideas today I stumbled on to the absolutely amazing Star Wars gift section over at Think Geek. They’ve got some unique and hilarious items for sale over there, like the infamous Tauntaun sleeping bag, and a Boba Fett jetpack backpack; but none are quite as swanky as the Wampa Rug.
Yup, that’s right, nothing says “chick magnet” like a dead snow beast from the ice planet Hoth spread lusciously across the floors in your man cave. The chicks will be lining up to strap on their Leia buns and metal slave girl bikinis to lie across this velvety soft love carcass and grab a hold of your lightsaber to warm themselves on those frosty Hoth nights. Bow-chicka bow-wow!
I just hit Worldofwarcraft.com on my way to check out the forums and was completely blown away by the deal they’re having right now.
Check out this insanity! For $20 you can own the original vanilla WoW as well as the next two expansions. That’s three games, with thousands of hours worth of playtime, for the price of the first game!
There has never been a better time to start playing World of Warcraft, or to return to the game. Azeroth just went up in flames last week with a major patch, giving us a ton of new stuff to play with, new and previously blocked off zones opened up to explore, a completely new 1-60 quest leveling experience, changes to race / class combinations and tons more.
Keep in mind you’ll still have to pay normal ($39.99) price for the expansion that’s coming out December 7th, but if you were curious about WoW, now’s the time to buy the old content you’ll need to play Cataclysm. This would also make a great gift for the holidays for someone you know who’s curious. Don’t forget, WoW also has a $15 monthly fee to play, so if you’re giving this as a gift, you might want to also consider a game card as part of your package.
Give the gift of WoW, or treat yourself! Come see Azeroth burn and help us fight Deathwing!

Chances are, even if you aren’t a geek yourself, you have someone close to you that can recite Rutger Hauer’s final monologue from Blade Runner word for word, or has a vast collection of Batman underwear.
