Ebay item of the week: For the heart that has everything

Marquette Electronics MAC PC EKG Electrocardiogram.


This is the next SoCal party craze, following up on oxygen bars and botox parties. Come over, have a glass of wine, and get your heart rhythm checked.

Seriously, I had no idea they sold these on Ebay. In a strange way, it would be completely badass to have one around the house, like on a table in the living room next to a Lladro figurine.

Runner up (non-Ebay) item of the week: Neuticals. (H/t gswift.)

    TGW has such impeccable taste in table curios.

  5. A biofeedback-based drinking game sounds like a great idea actually. But you can’t have everybody at the table take a shot — seems to me like the way to do it would be with partners — like 6 people at a round table, wired to 6 EKG (or better, EEG) — the person directly across from you is your partner. When your partner’s waveform is irregular, you have to take a shot. So the point of the game is to help your partner maintain a healthy wave form. (My grandpa and dear departed grandma do/did this stuff for a living.)
