# ThinkGeek SpillNot No-Spill Mug Holder

No spills, thanks to physics! We love our coffee and TeaEarlGreyHot and caffeinated hot chocolate, but if we had a nickel for every time we've spilled hot beverage on ourselves, we'd have at least five dollars. Who knew the walk from the ki...tchen back to our cubes would be so fraught with danger? The SpillNot mug holder will save you from spills with the magic of physics! Science FTW! Here's how it works: When you hold a cup of hot beverage, inertia keeps the liquid from moving. But when you walk, you create horizontal force, causing the side of the cup to press against the liquid, which then rises up and over the edge of the cup. The flexible loop handle of SpillNot cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the saucer or the cup. As the handle moves horizontally, the saucer and cup swing up slightly in the opposite direction, balancing everything out so the liquid stays in the cup. When you are walking normally, the only force acting in a direction that is not parallel to the sides of the cup is the force of gravity. (Of course, if you apply a vertical force by jerking your hand around or dropping the SpillNot, all bets are off!) If the SpillNot is swung all the way around in a loop such that the cup is upside down at the top of the arc, the liquid does not pour out of the cup due to the force which acts in the opposite direction as gravity when the cup is at the top of the arc. (Note: Try this outside with plastic cups first. You need to experiment to get the right amount of speed in your swing.) Ready to carry your burning hot beverage around the office with confidence? Prepared to amaze your friends with crazy stunts starring physics? Get your own SpillNot and be the Mr. Wizard of the office. Product Specifications Genius invention that lets you carry a full cup without spilling it Put the cup on the base, lift and carry SpillNot by the strap You can even do tricks (with some practice, try outside first!) Excellent gift for: science teachers, people who spill drinks a lot Black plastic base with non-slip coaster and woven nylon strap Dimensions: 7.5" tall, 6.25" at widest point, 4.5" wide base for mug Read More

Retro Ballistics! In the days before gunpowder (at least in the west), folks had to find new and intriguing ways to throw death an...d destruction at each other. They started by throwing rocks, then progressed to hurling giant stones, and then to flinging boulders. The evolution of the machines used to accomplish this hurling is as intriguing as the things hurled. Many times trash and debris were lobbed over castle walls to rain down upon unsuspecting masses or invading armies. These kits let you bring back all the fun of flinging. Each one can assemble in just a few hours, and provides a fantastic scale model of an actual war weapon of yore. The trebuchet is better for long range targets (like the water cooler or networked printer). And, all you need to put them together are some strong fingers (or pliers), a cutting tool, and glue (not included). The Wooden Trebuchet Kit is perfect for showing your love of retro weaponry. Please Note: Though these kits are for educational purposes, they are functional. Care should be taken when constructing and using them. Don't use anything living as a target or projectile. Because kits must be glued together, opened kits are non-returnable. Wooden Trebuchet Kit Breakdown Range: 20' or more Dimensions: 8"L X 4"W X 6"H Throwing Arm: 8" (4:1 Ratio) Precut and pre-drilled Counterweight: 78 Pennies (not included) Working model with bucket Read More

Space Food for Everyone Science museums are really cool places with tons of wonderful learning experiences available to the public.... You can walk through giant heart models, see dazzling laser displays, even gawp at actual moon landers. But let's face it, the best part of every science museum is normally in a bin near the cash register: freeze dried ice cream. Four of the tastiest words in the English language. But thanks to us, you can now get the ice cream astronauts eat without the risk of accidentally learning anything. Yay! Each package of Astronaut Ice Cream is made with state-of-the-art yummy food technology. First made by the Whirlpool Corporation (yup, the washer/dryer people) for the Apollo missions, freeze dried ice cream has been a favorite of geeks ever since. We have three flavors to offer you. The "original" flavor most often found in museums is neapolitan (chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla) - and we also have mint chocolate chip (cool and delicious) and chocolate chocolate chip (very, very chocolaty) to tease your taste buds. Try one or try them all, we know you'll love 'em. And if you really want the full astronaut experience, just get some tall strong folks at your office to hold you upside down when you eat. Peristalsis is amazing, and so is Astronaut Ice Cream. Super Six Pack is two of each of the three flavors - ideal for longer space missions. Each package is 0.7 oz of joy and can be stored (unopened) for up to 3 years. For nutrition information, click here. Read More
