No geek is immune. The allure of, for lack of a better word, stuff. We see it, we must have it. It doesn’t matter how much it costs or if we already have one that looks just like it, we will shell out our hard-earned cash. Do we need it? Absolutely not. That doesn’t matter. What matters is we possess an item that reminds us of something geeky we love.
Whilst surfing the internet recently (as I routinely to do), I happened upon an R2D2 swimsuit. You heard me correctly. A swimsuit, made to resemble the small droid from Star Wars. And if I wasn’t broke and it wasn’t eighty-five dollars, it would be in my hands right now. See what I’m saying?
