Being the computer geek I have always been, I never leave the house with any less than two USB sticks in my pocket.  Why?  Because you never know when I might need them.  Always be prepared!

While I always carry USB sticks with me when I am away from home, I rarely use them at home since I just transfer files around my network if there is something I need on a certain machine.  However, if there is one thing I do use at home, it is slippers and considering mine are worn out and ready for the trash, I could really use a pair of super geeky USB stick slippers like these!

Etsy seller UniquePcrochet is selling these crocheted USB stick slippers for $40.  However, if you have some awesome crochet skills and are more of the DIY type, you can get the crochet pattern for these USB stick slippers for just $5.50.  Whether you want to buy a pair or make one, these would be perfect for any computer lovers you know!

Tired of playing with just normal dice?  Sure, some color can change things up again but they still look pretty much the same so it doesn’t put that much spice into your tabletop game.  However, if you are a Portal fan and are looking for a dice that is a little different, how about playing with a Companion Cube dice?

Etsy seller niquegeek is selling these awesome Portal Companion Cube dice for $29 each.

I will admit that $29 for a single dice is a bit crazy but these aren’t your average cheap dice.  These Companion Cube dice are 3D printed and then fired to make them into solid steel.  You also have your choice of numbers on the side or traditional Companion Cube harts (which seems like it would kind of defeat the purpose of being a dice).  They are also hollow so they are much lighter than they look which I would say is a good thing.

For as absolutely uncomfortable as high heel shoes look, I have to admit that I am kind of jealous of women because they can wear some amazing looking heels and I can’t.  Of course my definition of amazing is probably different than most women because when I talk about amazing heels, I am talking about shoes like the Avengers high heels or the R2-D2 high heels.  Well, speaking of awesome high heels, now I have found some really cool Batman ones too!

These blinged out (is that a term?) Batman high heels were created by Green with Envii clothing.  Apparently just one shoe took 5 hours to make and I think you can still buy the pair from them for $120.

This might be a bit too flashy for some Batman fans but if you like some bling on your feet, these might just be the pair of Batman heels for you!

Here on Global Geek News, most of the stuff I post is targeted at the somewhat stereotypical geek who likes video games, science fiction, fantasy and superheroes.  Of course not all geeks like all of those things (I am only now getting into the fantasy stuff and have never read a comic book in my life) but I try to keep things diverse enough that there is something for everybody.  However, that kind of begs the question, what kind of geeks are there?

The infographic below called The Sacred Order of Geeks lists a bunch of different types of geeks and their descriptions.  I find myself falling somewhere between Das Ubergeek and the Internet Geek although I see a little of myself in a couple of other categories like Star Trek geek and Gamer Geek.  What about you?  Tell us in the comments which one best describes you!

It wasn’t until this weekend when it was on Syfy that I finally got a chance to sit down and watch Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome but I loved it!  It really put me in the mood for watching some BSG again.  I don’t know if there is a chance it will happen or not, but I would really love it if they made more in the Blood & Chrome time period as the mini series or whatever you want to call it was awesome!

Speaking of Battlestar Galactica, it seems like a wonderful coincidence that the popular What the Frak t-shirt is on sale for just $11 over at BustedTees until Monday night!  That is 45% off of the normal $20 price!

I suspect I will probably pick up this shirt sometime this weekend as it would go great with my three other BSG t-shirts.  I have seen this shirt for sale at sci-fi conventions for several years but have never purchased it because I don’t like spending the really high convention prices for shirts if I am pretty sure I can find it cheaper somewhere else.  Now that I have finally found it cheaper, I definitely will get one!

You aren’t sure if you are going to buy one?  What the frak?!  Just do it!

Having gone through a couple of toilet seats over the past couple of years, I have noticed that they just don’t seem to make them with the same quality that they used to.  They use to make toilet seats that lasted me for years and now I seem to be going through one every year or two.  The worst part is most of the ones they have at my local hardware store are ugly so I don’t really have much of a choice in what I get.  I wish they sold a Millennium Falcon toilet seat like this one!

Sadly, I don’t know who this ultimate Star Wars toilet belongs to so if you know, please let us know in the comments below so I can give them the credit they deserve!

Not only does this toilet feature a Millennium Falcon toilet seat but anybody that uses a lightsaber for a plunger ranks right at the top of my cool person list.
