  Gold fish swimming in the tea that you’re about to drink? Sounds pretty nasty, but these fishy tea bags will make most people wonder why you’re sipping that tea

This reminds me of my (now dust-collecting) Facebook account, where I set my religion to "Hedonist" and my political views to "Appalled."

I confess: I want one.
Just because a product seems perfect doesn't necessarily mean there isn't room to squeeze just a little more usefulness out of it. Take the humble binder, or bulldog clip, as it's often called. Its simple design lets it keep giant stacks of paper in order, prevent loose cables from sliding off your desk--but with a tiny design tweak, it can also serve as a handy spot to hold a cup of coffee.

Gimme a pliers and a wire hanger, and I'll give you one in about five minutes.

When a ‘crate-digger’ found a massive vinyl collection at a flea market, he couldn’t understand how a soul star who’d released over 100 records could just disappear. But the truth turned out to be even stranger. Jon Ronson goes in search of Mingering Mike

It's moments like these that make me happy to have picked up the hobby of sewing.

+Krista Park Yes, I hear you on the destashing. You just inspired me to give a pass to this fabric...for now. I should use what I have and stop being greedy and buying every "shiny" bit of fabric or yarn which crosses my path.

You, ma'am, have done a good thing here today.

A multi-tool toolbox. I may need it, for two reasons:

* I've reached max capacity on my current (admittedly small) toolbox
* Integrated whiteboard. That alone sold me, so even if I don't get one of these I'll definitely be adding a whiteboard to my existing workspace (dunno why I haven't before now, to be honest).
Last summer we told you about the Coolest Cooler, a smart cooler that integrated so many extra features that it went on to become the most successful crowd funded project

Docker seems to be suffering from a severe case of Gartner Hype Cycle.  Everybody's suddenly in the Trough of Disappointment.  Give Docker a break, the tech is less than 2 years old.

It's not often that you can describe a soup ladle as “cute” or “unique,” but that's exactly that this adorable Loch Ness monster ladle is – it's a cute, soup-serving version of everyone's favorite Scottish terror of the deep.
