If you are a hardcore Mario Brothers fan, you might be interested to learn that ThinkGeek is selling the very 1-Up mushrooms so you stay alive in the case of death. (Now, that’s a joke, please don’t go out there and kill yourself plz!)
The instructions are pretty simple. All you do is add potting soil to the green sewer-pipe-shaped flower pot, and push the spores deep into it. Soak the soil with water using the dropper, add a squirt of the food solution, and then it’s off to a dark location for a few weeks. We left ours in the darkest corner of our server room, and broke out our NES to relive some classic Mario memories. Three weeks later, we checked in on it. To our surprise, what you see in the photo above is what greeted us – a perfect 1up mushroom
. Thrilled, we jumped up in the air, punched the ceiling tiles (earning 10 coins), and instantly bought the entire stock of them to offer to you, our friends.
