    This is one of the $30,000 time-traveling DeLorean conversion kits available from Bob's Prop Shop on eBay. You just buy the $30,000 kit, ship them your regular, non-time-traveling DeLorean, and 3-6 weeks later they ship your car back looking like one of the time machines from ... / Continue →

    This is the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Brick (not actually a Rubik's cube, just similar) available from Brando. It costs $320, which is pretty expensive for something I'm inevitably going to throw at the ground as hard as I can, then stab and set on fire. Just saying, you know what h... / Continue →

    This is the Blown Glass Solar System Ornament Set. It includes the sun (not shown) and all nine planets (high-five, Pluto!). Unfortunately, the set costs $375, which is significantly out of my ornament budget this year. I can barely afford to string popcorn together. Beside... / Continue →

    This is the $13 Samus Amiibo Super Smash Bros toy that recently sold on eBay for a cool $2,500 because she was accidentally made with dual arm cannons instead of just one. Apparently somebody was willing to pay a $2,487 premium for that. So now would be a great time to know s... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like some sort of fossilized dinosaur testicle, the world's largest white truffle hangs out and relaxes before going up for auction next week. The truffle, which was unearthed in Italy by Sabatino Truffles, weighs 4.16-lbs (1.89-kg) and experts (because there... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of Knightscope K5 security robots. They look like a cross between R2-D2, a Dalek, and the kind of buttplug you'd expect to find on a space station. Microsoft already tested a crew of them at its Silicon Valley campus. And you can rent some too, starting as ... / Continue →

    This is the Alien Facehugger Dog Leash made and sold by Etsy shop GCFX. It costs $150, which is a little out of my dog leash budget (I use three shoelaces tied together and a safety pin). Also, the facehugger is actually attached to a black fabric harness, which is hard to se... / Continue →
