Night Dragon Tapestry

The Night Dragon tapestry is made of 100% cotton, pre-shrunk, color-fast and machine washable. The image of the Night Dragon is positioned on the entire tapestry, featuring large bat wings, long tail and large nails. The size of the Night Dragon tapestry is 80" by 100". The tapestry is available in blue.

The dragon symbolized evil in the ancient Middle East, and the Egyptian god Apepi was the great serpent of the world of darkness. The Greeks and Romans sometimes represented dragons as evil creatures and sometimes as beneficent powers acquainted with the secrets of the earth. In Christianity the dragon symbolized sin and paganism, and saints such as St. George were shown triumphing over it. Used as warlike emblems in many cultures, dragons were carved on the prows of Norse ships and depicted on royal ensigns in medieval England. In the Far East the dragon was a beneficent creature, wingless but regarded as a power of the air. In China it symbolized yang in the yin-yang of cosmology, and it served as the emblem of the royal family.

Deck LED-Backlit Keyboard

ThinkGeek Gadgets

Adjustable illumination!

Take a nice long look at the only LED backlit keyboard with every character on every key individually lit, not just the frame and gaps in between. Deck's lights are rated at 200,000 hours of life. That's pushing 22 years if the Deck is never turned off. The LEDs can be easily adjusted to one of seven brightness levels to reach the desired level of illumination.

This thing looks great and is built to last. Deck keyboards are constructed with 50-million cycle switches and gold cross point key switches. (Putting it into perspective, the keyboard you are using right now is most likely using 1 million cycle switches and no gold). It is built to operate smoothly in environments from minus 40°C to plus 70°C. So you're safe in both Antarctica and Death Valley. You never know, you know?

Available in four colors, Fire (red), Ice (blue), ToXic (green), and Gold (yellow). See additional images to check 'em out!

Gold-filled Celtic Brooch

Gold-filled Celtic Brooch

Gold-filled Celtic Brooch

The Gold-filled Celtic Brooch is very elegant, yet simple! The Celtic brooch is filled with 14K gold over pewter, which makes it much thicker than gold plated. The Gold-filled Celtic Brooch measures 1 ½ inches in diameter.

The design featured on the Gold-filled Celtic brooch is the ever-famous Celtic knotwork. Celtic knotwork is so stunningly beautiful in its simplicity; a single path that never terminates except within itself. Some knots were used as magical talismans for protection. Celtic knotwork is an ancient tradition. Its origins can be traced back as far 500 BC.

There's no single meaning for a knot. Its symbolism differs from person to person, country to another. However, there are no known authentic knotwork designs meaning love or loyalty or many of the other common meanings ascribed to the designs. Nevertheless, the Celts believed that all life was interconnected, and these knots represent that particular belief.

Belgian Crossbow Pistol, 17th Century

Decorative 17th Century Belgian Crossbow, safe cannot be fired.

This little crossbow was more likely developed for target and sporting purposes than as a serious weapon, but it was able to throw a bolt a considerable distance under the power of the spring-steel bow. This replica is not functional, except to the extent that the workings of a crossbow are clearly demonstrated.

Never Threaten to Eat Your Co-Workers: Best of Blogs

ThinkGeek Books

A Voyeuristic Collection Of The Internet's Best BLOG Entries...

Do you occasionally wonder,

What kind of person works at a porn video store?
Do public defenders believe in their clients?
What does a reporter feel when he visits war-torn Iraq?
What happens after a child star falls into obscurity?

Thanks to Web logs, or "blogs" as they're affectionately nicknamed by Net-savvy voyeurs, anyone can jump into the shoes of a video salesclerk, a criminal court lawyer, an international journalist, or a TV star, among others.

While entertaining and educating, these virtual diaries represent a cross section of the people who dwell online. This book features the Internet's most provocative writing, by unknown writers and underground celebrities.

Neil Forrester, former cast member of MTV’s The Real World, gives new meaning to the phrase "Bite your tongue." Meanwhile, Star Trek:The Next Generation actor, Wil Wheaton, gives his take on the Hollywood system and fleeting stardom.

Elsewhere, web designer Heather Hamilton finds herself unemployed after postin on-the-job stories to her personal blog. And humorist Choire Sicha shares advice about broken hearts and timeshares. Plus: tales of creepy video-store customers, office pranks gone awry, a childhood encounter with Darth Vader, and so much more!

T-Shirt: Hot Coffee - Gird Your Loins For Love (100% Cotton)

ThinkGeek T-Shirts

Too Hot For Some...

As any monkey will tell you, here at ThinkGeek we love delicious Hot Coffee. Sometimes we like it standing up, sometimes on our knees, and sometimes we just like to sit back and enjoy someone else serving us Hot Coffee. A lot of people like Hot Coffee, and a lot of people have been talking about it. Too many people have been talking though, and the goverment is taking away our Hot Coffee. They're replacing it with Decaf. Decaf sucks.

Stand up, sit down, or get on your knees with us and morn the demise of Hot Coffee. If you don't get it, you won't get any. But if you do get it, you might still be able to get some. At least with a shirt.

Black t-shirt in heavyweight 100% cotton with "Hot Coffee, gird your loins for love." printed on the front in white ink.

Wi-Fi Digital HotSpotter (Canary Wireless)

ThinkGeek Computing

WiFi Detection with LCD screen

We haven't seen any WiFi sniffing dogs at the airport but we suspect that somewhere there is a small group of individuals dedicated to training such useful helpers. Until these canines are trained and domesticated we have a device that can assist in "sniffing out" the presence of WiFi. It's a nice unit that offers several improvements on currently available WiFi detectors.

Your typical WiFi detector will only show the presence of a signal and relative signal strength. This Wi-Fi Digital Hotspotter, from Canary Wireless, has a 12-character LCD that provides information on signal availability and strength as well as essential network information, including SSID, security status and channel. When multiple networks are present the LCD will allow you to scroll through information for each network.

Also has these great features.

Greenies Smart-Treats for Dogs Value Packs

Greenies Smart-Treats Jumbo Size Value Pack
16 Oz - Jumbo - For Dogs Over 90 Lbs. - 4 Pack

There's never been anything like Greenies for your dog.
These delicious bone-hard treats clean your dog's breath while they clean his teeth. Greenies with natural chlorophyll help reduce odors, control dental tartar and plaque, strengthen gums, and diminish oral bacteria.

Greenies is the first and only treat to provide all of these benefits in one nutritious, enjoyable chew:

Dogs can't resist the taste.
Helps clean teeth and freshen breath.
Abrasive action decreases buildup of dental plaque.
No by-products, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors.
Created by a veterinarian, clinical nutritionist, and agricultural specialist.
Enhances nutrition.
The Greenies Story
Dr. Joe and Judy Roetheli are dog lovers with a strong interest in animal health and nutrition. But the idea for Greenies was actually inspired by Ivan, their male Samoyed who suffered from terrible breath.

The Roethelis decided to formulate something Ivan would love to chew on that would get rid of his doggie breath and be good for his teeth and overall health.

The results were amazing. With help from a veterinarian and clinical nutritionist, the Roethelis developed Greenies, the first and only smart-treat for dogs. Greenies not only satisfy a dog's natural desire to chew, they contain the natural green advantages of chlorophyll, which comes from plants. And Greenies offer the most complete list of terrific benefits for you and your dog--from dental care to nutrition to fun.

No artificial coloring added, no preservatives, and no plastics or other inert ingredients.
