It is that time of year again, except this year I actually get to participate instead of just consuming.

Sometime December-ish, the Our Internet Monkey King, the [livejournal.com profile] benchilada, performs his state & hosptial mandated public service to assist the world with holiday shopping as the clock runs down on the month lest we all have to join him in the bouncy room. I've found THE BIG SHILL to be a gold mine of gifts for the last two years, so go forth and check it out. It tends to update rather often, so its worth going back to check again and again to see what's popped up since you were last there five minutes ago. If you too create things, you are welcome to participate in the shameless whorebaggery and pimp thyself.

Also, Dr. [livejournal.com profile] warren_ellis (OBE, VC, Internet Jesus) has compiled another lovely etsy list on his little bit of Hyde Corner-On-Internet, whitechapel.com.

GO FORTH AND CONSUME.

I seem to have gotten a mention in the American Chemical Society's weekly newsletter for their holiday shopping guide.

Scientific Drinking (TM) indeed!

Alright, I have made an Etsy site with which to sell my wares.  A lovely line of Steins O' Science are available ranging in size from 350mL (about a soda can) to 4.3L (a bit shy of a mini-keg).  I don't currently have a 665mL available yet, but its only a matter of time.

Yeah, they're expensive, for which I apologize.  Such is life when you play with laboratory grade equipment but they've been an awful lot of fun to engineer.

I have also been pimped thusly by the [info]benchilada.  Bless his sTone-y heart.  He always thinks of the children.

So I ran the numbers to figure out what the price is for you, The Public, to have a Stein O' Science of your very own.  It goes as follows:

350mL stein: $275
665mL stein: $325
1L stein: $375
1.9L stein: $600
4.3L stein: $800

(The 1.9L & 4.3L wissenschaftenstein are proudly featured here)

I could make them cheaper by using an inferior quality dewar, but the inner cryogenics technician balks at the idea.  I know for a fact that both of the steins I've made so far are at least 15 years old and still holding vacuum.  This is no mere thermos; this is a dewar that you can fill with liquid nitrogen (LN2) and it will still have most of the LN2 in there three days later.  That's how good the vacuum is.  Now imagine how cold it will keep your beer...

If you really want one, let me know and I'll see what I can do about making it happen in time for Christmas.  It's already a titch late for Oktoberfest 2009.
