ThisIsWhyImBroke

Hey there, blogographers. I have a special treat here today that, while perhaps not entirely meeting the exact criteria one may have for being a "blog," is still a very cool site with a vague blog structure.

This particular site is ThisIsWhyImBroke [sic], which is built up around the idea of displaying awesome things that the authors run across on the internet, whether it cost pennies or dozens of G's (the money kind of G, of course). While there are many practical purchase options on the "blog," it still features quite a few wacky items for ridiculous prices.

Ya know. In case you happened to be fabulously wealthy, of course. ;P

Going to their "About Us" page on the site has the following self-description for ThisIsWhyImBroke:

"ThisIsWhyImBroke is a free online magazine/blog run by a few geeky ladies and gentlemen who partake in way too much internet shopping. As such, our staff has a wide array of cool, fun, useful, and unique products that we showcase on our website for your consideration.

Our philosophy is simple: we only want to display cool things you can buy on the web. We are not interested in spamming products at you, nor are we interested in compromising the integrity of this site. When you visit ThisIsWhyImBroke, you’ll always see unique products that our staff was so fond of we felt it needed to be shared with you the viewer. Many items listed on this site do return a small commission for product referral, however this is not the sole motivation for posting certain items. Our staff regularly posts products that we receive absolutely no compensation for."

So, keep in mind that not all of the items they post about are solely for the altruistic purpose of great taste and excellent prices -- they do make a bit of buck on the side. This is no problem for me, though, because the amount of awesome products they feature is phenomenal. I'm surprised I have anything left in my bank account, to be honest!

Here's a few particularly bitchin' items from the site to leave you with today. Enjoy!


Whiskey stones, to keep your drink cold but strong!

High-tech Space Invaders-style couch!

The girl of your dreams, of course.
