Speaking of geek toys... I do not have too much money but apparently Santa did. Received one of these as christmas present (it was gift for both of us):

From the site :

"Each blade is constructed with true 360° EL (electro-luminescent) lamp technology, housed inside an indestructible polycarbonite tube. "



It says the swords are made from indestructable pipe material.

.. Yeah right.

Powerballs are really funny. It was surprise to me that they were so fun. But then again, I do like weird stuff. I have no idea are they any good to muscles but it's fun to make it roll and hum. It feels good when it vibrates and hums in hand and sound is quite funny also. To feel that ball jerking, pulling and twitching in it's own rhythm... It's hard to describe. It's getting on muscles of arm really quickly and harder you make it spin harder it gets. I love to make it spin so fast it start hurting and then loosen up the pace. Making it start is not so easy, thou.

Powerballs are not only fun, they're really good training for your wrists, and probably quite allright for your grip. Just rev it up to 9000 rpm or more, and keep it there for a while. I guarantee you will feel it.

And you'll soon learn how to make it start. Actually, your first goal should be to be able to start it without the thread. Just spin the inner ball with your thumb and work on it. It's not only possible, once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy.

Yes it is... But before you get hang on it it's really frustrating. It took about six hours to learn how to make it spin with thread every time. I have tried that finger thing already dozen times, so far no luck. But I will keep practicing!
