A Nerd’s back to school essentials

So, after 3 straight months of Minecrafting (with periodic breaks to Google questions nobody cares about the answers to) it’s time to go back to school.

These Nerd approved school supplies will help you get through the next 9 months in nerd style!


Tetris sticky notes

Not sure how functional these are (unless you already write in an “L” shape) but we LOVE the idea of them.  We think that to add to their authenticity, it should come with a bunch of L’s, T’s, Z’s and squares, but only a couple of straight lines!

Techy Pouches

Show off your true colors with these supply pouches.  Sure, 3.5″ disks haven’t been used since you installed the original Wolfenstein, and there’s probably an app where you can snap a picture of an angled line instead of using a protractor, but that’s what makes them great!  Relive your glory days through your children’s school supplies!

Mustache paper clips

Mustaches are classy, we all know that.  But it’s important to make sure everyone knows how classy you are even when you’re not around!  These mustache paper clips are perfect for holding together your lists of favorite Cabernet Sauvignons or your autographed Marx Brothers photographs.  Attaching them to any written document automatically adds an implied British accent to whoever is reading it.

Game Controller Calculator

You have to keep your gaming chops up while you’re at school.  You think your opponents on the other side of the globe are allowing their thumbs to get lazy?  No.  They’re not.  They’re keeping them in tip top condition with thumb cozies, regular stretches and a gamers diet (Cheetos and Mountain Dew.)  This calculator will give you the edge you’ve been looking for.  It also maths for you too.

Lego notebook

If you’re breaking out a notebook, chances are something boring is about to happen.  These Lego notebooks will help you spice it up a little.  It comes with some pieces you can actually rearrange to make your own creation.  Best part is, they’re squishy – so stepping on one won’t mean your life has literally ended.

Dr. Who TARDIS Lunchbox


This lunchbox has the unique ability to produce a different lunch every time you open and close the lid.  You just keep opening it until you find something you like.  This is powered by its proprietary Chameleon Circuit.  We have heard, however, that many units are shipping with a faulty Chameleon Circuit and just produce peanut butter and jelly every time.

Cleaning Putty

The ultimate nerd school supply.  If being nerd is defined in any way – it’s caring about certain things more than anyone really should.  And this proves it.  Shaking out your keyboard isn’t enough.  Using a can of air isn’t enough.  You need a putty that slowly molds itself to your electronic device and picks up every last spec of dust.  From your keyboard, your phone, game controller, whatever.  There is one thing we found it’s not great for picking up though……….girls.
