Just when you thought ThinkGeek couldn’t be any cooler, we’ve found this great set of coasters that make the perfect addition to any macabre lover’s living room. Introducing Brain Specimen Coasters, which come in a stack of ten, each with a slice of the human brain printed on it. When the coasters are stacked neatly together, they form a full brain. I feel like this is a metaphor for parenting somehow, but I’ll have to explain it when my brain is not scattered in pieces around my house.
Of course, coasters can get scattered everywhere – just like brains – but worry not; each coaster is numbered so that you can easily re-assemble your brain in the proper order (if only it were that simple in real life). Each 4″ x 4″ glass coaster has rubber feet so that it won’t leave scratches. Protect your furniture and impress your guests at the same time! Just because you’re doing the adult thing and buying coasters doesn’t mean they have to be boring.
If you’re a science geek, or you’ve got an unhealthy obsession with the brain (zombie much?), this set is perfect for you. It would also be an ideal housewarming gift for the neuroscientist or psychologist in your life.
