Quite a broad range – from the Terrafugia Car/Plane all the way down to Duct Tape and Bubble-Gum (er, rather,,,Soooper-Glooo)

If you haven't yet hit the Car/Plane Website, you owe it to yourself to take this 2 minute tour: http://www.terrafugia.com/

Meanwhile,  I'd choose Kaley Cuoco over Mayim Bialik in a second ,,, One Nerd in the house (me) is enough!

Nice Mix

This is a nice mix of items that any engineer would appreciate.  Duct tape can fix most things and anything it can not fix, super glue can take up the slack.  Big Ban Theory is also a classic that can be enjoyed again and again.

Duct Tape and Krazy Glue would be such a thoughtful gift!  I have to send this list out to friends!

I'll have to look for the Lomography store here in San Francisco.  Coincidentally, I just exercised my shutters on my old Canon the other day.  I miss film.

Great story--ALTHOUGH, my kids and grandkids better not show up Christmas morning with duct tape for the old man.  I will admit, like any hands-on engineer, I have use miles upon miles of duct tape over the years to cure any number of problems.  Even used tape to patch over the exterior of my Piper Tri-Pacer.  It was a fabric-covered flying wonder I loved to fly around in. One bird strike pretty much did me in one sunny Saturday afternoon but I was back in the air quickly after the "patch".
