So I think this is the coolest gadget/invention/technosexual necessity I've seen in awhile. Enter the PowerSquid! I've got a lot of electronics...PCs, monitors, stereo, video game systems, chargers for tons of gadgets....and they all require e-lec-tricity. Now obviously unless you've got a freaky house just FULL of outlets and don't mind spreading your technology all around the house, you're going to need a lot of outlets to plug all those jiggys into.

The majority of my gadgets reside in my bedroom near the computer. I think all told the number of outlets I need is around 18-20. A standard powerstrip or surge protector houses about 5 outlets. Most of my gadgets have odd or annoying boxy-shaped adapters tha allow for maybe 3 of those outlets to be used, while effectively covering up the others. Some genius (I think he IS a genius because this may be the one of the best things I've bought in awhile) decided to create short cords extending from the actual base unit so that you *could* utilize all 5 jacks. Love it.

If you've got a nightmare of wires and cables look into one. ThinkGeek's got 'em :)

Unicef bombs the Smurfs in fund-raising campaign for ex-child soldiers

The short film pulls no punches. It opens with the Smurfs dancing, hand-in-hand, around a campfire and singing the Smurf song. Bluebirds flutter past and rabbits gambol around their familiar village of mushroom- shaped houses until, without warning, bombs begin to rain from the sky.

Tiny Smurfs scatter and run in vain from the whistling bombs, before being felled by blast waves and fiery explosions. The final scene shows a scorched and tattered Baby Smurf sobbing inconsolably, surrounded by prone Smurfs.
