Three wrong ways to choose an awesome geeky gift

Today with vast availability of fan stores from all kinds of fandoms, people believe it’s easy to choose a gift for a geek. Just get the guy another Harley Quinn figurine to gather dust on the shelves, right? Wrong! Geeks don’t care about mainstream pop culture. They only care for what’s close to their heart.

That’s why nobody wants an average, thoughtless, mediocre present. It is time for a geek to speak up for one’s needs by pointing out some of the most common mistakes others make while choosing geeky presents only a wannabe YouTube nerd-streamer with 37 views will enjoy.

Fire-breathing remote controlled dragon can actually fly @ 100mph

What’s the freakiest thing you seen all day? Not sure about you, perhaps for us it has to be this remote-controlled flying dragon that shoots fire. Conceived by Rick Hamel of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the lime-green colored, red eyed dragon, clad in fiberglass and Nomex honeycomb body, is powered by a Jetcat Kerostart P80 engine and uses liquid propane for fuel that’s ignited (within the mouth) by a 55,000-voltage stun gun.

This monstrous toy by Rick is inspired from Disney movie How to Train your Dragon, and is immaculate, measuring 7 1/2-ft long, and featuring a 9ft-long wingspan, which allows the dragon to do up to 100mph in 10-12 minutes of a single charge. The dragon that’s taken Rick over five months to build, as we said has a stun gun in the mouth, on hitting the R/C switch the jaw opens and a micro-switch is activated to turn propane gas and stun gun on to execute fire from the dragon’s mouth – scary, but it ought to be fun.
