Fuzzy binary blanket from ThinkGeek

Binary fuzzy blanket

What's better than a case of "No, I will not fix your computer" t-shirts and caffeine-molecule mugs? And no, the answer is not "A 'killer coding ninja monkeys' bumper sticker." C'mon. You're past that now. You might even have furniture! Or perhaps you've answered the call of the wild and are living out of a special tech-outfitted van. Anyway, you're a geek, and geeks gotta stay warm. Winter's a-comin'. You need this--to snuggle up, to brave the blizzard, to fend off the arctic blast.

Deeply fuzzy, with its two-centimeter-thick furriness. Deeply sentimental, since its pattern replicates the antique green phosphors on the CRT from your earliest programming days (before you even had a cup of C8H10N4O2.) And deeply geeky, since its digits spell out "blanket" in binary code.

How can you resist such wit, such soft, luxurious pile, vivid colors, quality manufacturing, and extensive field testing? And at around 40 bucks from ThinkGeek, it makes a stylish, sassy addition to your cubicle retreat, lovers' nest, or at-home "Matrix" marathon.
