Got extra money? You should totally buy some of this sh*t

There's nothing I enjoy more than getting my paycheck, buying a bunch of cool, random sh*t that I don't need, and then getting berated by my loved ones for being irresponsible with my money. #YOLO amirite? I actually just threw up in my mouth a little.

Okay, so seeing as how I appointed myself as the Indiana Jones of the internet, I find a lot of cool items online that would be great to own. These are some of those items. In now way am I telling you that you should go out and spend all your money on this stuff. No — make sure you pay your bills first. But if you do find yourself with a little extra cash and you want to pamper yourself, these can be yours...

Han Solo Frozen iPhone Case

Little known fact: Apple was on the fence about ever making the iPhone. Then they saw concept art for a Han Solo in Carbonite phone case. It put them over the edge and they decided to run with it. The iPhone was specifically made with this case in mind. Another little fact: George Lucas got the idea to put Han in carbonite from this case.

It can be yours for the low price of $15.99. You can check it out at This is why I'm broke or Amazon.

Bill Murray Coloring Book

If any of you follow me on Twitter or GameZone (odds are you don't), you'll know that I'm a huge fan of Bill Murray. If I was presented with the option of having relationships with Blake Lively or partying with Bill Murray, I'd party with Bill. I nearly sh*t myself when I saw Bill Murray coloring book where you can bring color to scenes from all of his movies.

My birthday is coming up in August, and you should totally buy this for me for $14.99 from This is why I'm broke or Amazon.

Mini Ballista Launcher

Yes. Yes. Yes. Wage war on the other people in your office with this little desk ballista. Comes with mini wood ammo that shoots up to 30 feet. Who will challenge your office might when you're armed with this? Sure, it might get you fired, or even sued if you shoot someone's eye out. But Rome wasn't build in a day, you can't handle the truth, and there is no 'i' in 't-e-a-m.' And your coworkers might not have an eye if you have a good aim.

Wage war for $24.95 from This is why I'm broke or Think Geek.
