Jackalope Ranch's Gift Guide for the Culture Geek
The Carolina Reaper. The Trinidad Scorpion. The Ghost. While it's true that you may have had your virtual ass kicked by someone with these gamertags, that experience is no match for what Mother Nature can do when she's good and pissed off. The crew at PuckerButt Pepper Company (go ahead it's SFW) are ready to sell you a packet of flaming pepper seeds to populate your geek's garden. Even for a newbie, it's really the perfect nerd plant - rife with superlatives (the hottest pepper in the world) backed by quantifiable data (in terms of Scoville units) and a great excuse to don industrial fire retardant gloves.
1. The Unkempt Nerd
Now that Movember is over, it's time to rid upper lips everywhere of their patchy, unkempt soup strainers for at least another year. Since the mustache was a throwback anyway, you might as well lop it off with an old-school device like Uncle Harold used to use. Discussion boards all over the Web abound with wet shaving enthusiasts, wielding hardened steel grooming implements and crowing about the pleasures of smooth faced nostalgia. It you have a nerd for mid-century aesthetics in your midst, shop for and buy a double edged, Don Draper-era razor/bacon slicer from various merchants across the Web.
