As Christmastime nears...

Since it is almost Thanksgiving, many new products are rolling onto store shelves everywhere for the giant commerce-fest that is the birthday of the christ child.

The most stupid one I have yet seen is the Oakley Thump.

Yes, it is a pair of sunglasses with a built in mp3 player. How fucking brilliant. Never has the presence of sunglasses prevented me from wearing headphones, nor has the wearing of headphones prevented me from wearing sunglasses.

One thing I do know about sunglasses is that they are easy to lose, and people frequently do lose them. Fortunately, with Oakley's patented new "Thump" technology you can now lose your sunglasses and mp3 player at the same time!

With the invention of newer and smaller electronic technology, it has never been easier to lose two things at the same time. For instance, it used to be easy to lose you cell phone, and easy to leave your camera somewhere, but now you can easily lose both at the same.

Thats what I call effiency. Notice the following chart:

You've got to admit its getting better, getting better all the time.
