Pretty much the most awesomest t-shirt tag ever. Yes, I love Top Gear, but don’t actually have this tee. Although the tag alone is worth it. Right from the mouth of Jeremy Clarkson I’d presume.

That probably means end of summer / fall for the U.S. audience, but you can always find the current episodes posted on some site or another. I think Streetfire.net is one.

LIghted Slippers

A pretty ingenious use of LED lights, and great if you’re tired of tripping over your kids toys in the middle of the night. Bright Feet Lighted Slippers are both light and weight sensitive so the LED lights only come on at night, and when you’re wearing the them. The LED beams illuminates 20-25 feet in front of you and even have a delayed off swith so you’ve got time to get back into bed before they turn off.
