        @StephenChapman I had read an article about these berries, IRRC "miraculin" and how a company tried to sell them decades ago when the FDA suddenly re-classified the berries such that they needed many expensive tests. The whole project collapsed.

        I didn't know these things had made it to market, but I'm looking forward to trying some. This one item might have just made the the article worth the time! Thanks!

        @bmgoodman Hey, thanks for checking out the gallery! That's neat that you read about those berries in that context. I've known about them via ThinkGeek for a year or two now, but I *never* see or hear of them mentioned anywhere. Let me know how they work for you! :D

      @nicholas22 Wasn't there an episode of Monk or CSI where someone was murdered using this stuff... the killer gave them a little of this and then put Drano in their cocktail (which they couldn't taste)?

  • Beware flying ink

    I used to twirl my pens a lot. One slung ink all over me, which broke me of the habit (though it was momentarily refreshing).

    • RE: 20 of the coolest gadgets and must-haves for your office!

      @JimboNobody Oh man, hahaha. Thanks for the heads-up!

      That reminds me of something that happened to my grandfather a long time ago. He used to shake bottles of stuff. No matter what was in a bottle, he would shake it up. Well, one morning, he was heading to work and took a bottle of shoe polish with him. Walking from the door to the car, he started shaking the bottle for no good reason and it ended up bursting open all over him. He was a firefighter and it just went all over his uniform. lol. I imagine it may have been momentarily refreshing for him as well. =)

    It really needs to come with rounded edges so it won't cause you too much pain when the person you're pranking takes the damn thing and jams it up your @$$.

      @boothby If you *really* wanted to see someone get mad at you for something like that, look up the BSODomizer (Google it). That thing's even more devious.

  • RE: 20 of the coolest gadgets and must-haves for your office!

    @Sonic Grenade...note the properly rounded edges!
