Feeling quite nostalgic for the days of old when a light-sabre from Star Wars would be a wonderful gift. I told family and friends not to buy me anything sensible this year so looking forward to what I will get. As I can’t wait and love hunting around the internet I have found a few suggestions.

Solarbotics Perpetual Motion Marble Kit, I can put this in the garden or on a bright windowsill and I can pretend I can create perpetual motion. Building it sounds like fun as well.

Now I am still a Star Wars fan and I can combine this with a truly great lawn/desk decoration. Its a fallen AT-AT Walker, a what at you say, clearly you have never watch The Empire Strikes Back, it is the one and only AT-AT Walker that fell at the Battle of Hoth. How the mighty can fall, something for us all to remember.

At At walker toy for the geek in everyone

Tickets for the Armageddon Expo, I can travel to any of them ..Really! I would love to go.

Well thats enough of that. To more interesting news, interested in how the world began, did an asteroid strike kickstart life on earth? Scientists have been trying to prove this theory and this post gives an interesting but not decisive account of how they have tried to recreate the action. Not quite Star wars of Jurassic Park but interesting. To conclude this meandering post, how about how tech is catching up to Star Trek? This post argues that we are fast catching up with our smart phones being on route to Captain Kirks communicator and with the new tech bringing medical assessments to the phones we will not need Dr McCoys tricorder…Thank goodness whiskey will stay the same, oh yea a bottle of Sctoch would also do very nicely for Xmas, Thank you.

One bottle of Scotch whiskey why not three or four?
