It's day 7 of our holiday. Day 1 was travelling; day two was meet-n-greet with the fam, followed by a bit of a nap-collapse, and Days 3-6 were WorldCon for him, and the pukebucket for me - and I never, ever get sick. Strep throat plus normal flu (how did I manage to get normal flu? Brilliant!), PLUS a severe reaction to this horrible new giant antibiotic "Bioxin". Disgusting horse-pill that you take once a day. The course cost me $100 (!!!) and of course, you don't get a refund if it makes you puke every 15 mins (which it did). 59 vomits later, I'm on amoxycillin ($25) and it's time to head back to Toronto.
I know this is old, I remember seeing previews of it a while ago, but Thinkgeek are now selling them (under "computer accessories", heh) and the description of what it does is just so FREAKY.
Eight pneumatic impact hammers stitched into the vest pound you where
you were hit - four front and four back - giving you the authentic
(though less bloody) feel of the hit. Wearing the vest makes you feel
more like you're in the game, and could even improve your gamerscore!
You can get your guild tabard on a teeshirt too, with a load of guff around the edge. Again, not pretty. But someone, somewhere will figure out how to get your guild image on a tee of your tabard colour choice sooner or later.
This outfit consists of a half-helmet with printed jumpsuit and EVA moulded chestpiece and gauntlets. Master
Chief's mission is to protect Earth against the Covenant, an alien
empire threatening the world in the 26th century. This could be you!
