These things are amazing, hilarious, and super fun. The Shock Ball functions as a random timer turning the game Hot Potato into Shock Potato! Instead of a buzzer telling you that you are out you get shocked and you get to stay in. The Shock Ball is a great time filler when we need a pick-me-up at the beginning of our time together or when our small group ends a little early.
I know, it is only Tuesday, but this Friday I will be picking two winners to receive a FREE SHOCK BALL!!! All you have to do is leave a comment below, tell us the summer block buster you are most eager to see.
If you do not win, head over to ThinkGeek, at $14 these things are a great investment…you might need a waiver.
Warning: The Product Emits An Electric Shock. Keep out of reach of children. Not suitable for those under the age of 14. This is a novelty item, not a toy. May interfere with electrical devices such as pacemakers.
What’s inside Cam’s Bag?
Cam, a youth pastor from Kansas and one of the winners of the 50% off shopping spree at Timbuk2, sent over a list of the contents in his new Timbuk2 Commute 2.0 Messenger Bag and a pic for another “What’s in your Bag?”
Cam made a great choice, I have this bag and I love it. I recently took it on a flight and going through TSA was quicker with its TSA compliant external laptop compartment. It unzips and lies flat for going through security without removing your laptop.

Earlier this month at SYMC I had a few people ask me about my bag so I thought I would share about it and it’s contents. I love looking through people things…that just sounded creepy, but I mean it in the most appropriation way…It is a source of inspiration and gaining ideas, I am an idea junkie. I have seen the “What’s In Your Bag” at Flickr and lifehacker.com, check out the ymtechstuff version. Here is a rundown of my bag this time last year.
I really like my Timbuk2 Commuter 2.0 (messenger bag. It is spacious, light, and TSA friendly) and think you should check out Timbuk2. I have 2 codes good for 50% off a purchase!

I have a bunch of tech tools and gadgets that make life easier in ministry and on trips. One of my favorite gadgets is the Pick Punch. Ever have a band member forget of lose their guitar pick? Never again with pick punch, grab an old gift card or hotel key card and BAM! Pick…I can get about 5 or 6 picks from one standard size gift card. Check out this video from SYMC.
