Marvelous Mantyhose: The latest Geek Chic

Whatever the time of day, it's time for retail therapy!

If you need a little excitement — or an amusing diversion from the mundane business of making a living — it's always a winner. And where better to go than Geek Alerts for the latest in Geek Chic.

There's everything here, from the fantastic to the faintly ridiculous. Ever heard of Mantyhose — the pantyhose for men? Don't laugh. It could be the next big thing, as more and more men turn their backs on bland conformity.

Some are going one step further, and choosing a design that complements their female companion's attire. (They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.)

But Mantyhose is only one of the thousands of cool garments, gadgets, gizmos, and geeky stuff on offer through Geek Alerts, complete with all the information you need to get the most out of your new gear.

There's even stuff to tickle the taste buds. Fancy a refreshing pick-me-up at the end of a hard day? Then another recently featured item — Hot Chocolate on a Stick — could be for you. Simply dip it into a cup of milk, and stir.

Something that caught my eye, as a person who lives in an earthquake-prone area, was the Quick-Shelter Door. This purely practical device functions as a regular door — until a quake strikes. The top half of it then folds down, within seconds, to create a pyramid-shaped shelter. It could save your life. Ingenious.

Anyone counting their pennies can relax. It actually pays to shop through Geek Alerts, thanks to the discount coupons and promo codes for some of the best online stores and services. For information on these amazing deals, go to 48 Hour Print coupons and Express Copy coupon codes.

It could be the smartest move you make today.

Fast food's sponsorship of sport

The key paragraph is the one in which Rasmussen points out that "a lot of the [sports] events, such as the fun runs and triathlons, wouldn't happen without such [fast-food-industry] sponsorship arrangements and would therefore leave the people without that exposure to good, healthy activities". Putting aside the fact that, grammatically, this is an illogical statement, it's exactly what was said about tobacco-industry sponsorship of sports events in the 1980s.

The date, if you can't read it without enlarging the image, is January 13, 2012.
