GIVE THE GIFT OF NOSTALGIA: If You Once Had to Be Fluent in DOS In Order to Play Civilization on the PC, You're Probably Gonna Love This Retro Mouse/Mousepad

It's nice to see some of the things of my youth coming back into fashion for the kiddos to appreciate (although I am a bit miffed you all think you started slap bracelets).

And this ode to the clunky computer mouse (complete with the little wheel) is not only a nostalgic nod to a time when every fucking thing on a computer glowed neon green, it's also clunky and ergonomically incompatible with your hand, just like the old-timey ones were.

Ahhh....the sweet, sweet pain of carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you happen to be/know/belong to a person who was alive during the heyday of desktop computers that took up entire desks with their behemoth monitors, then perhaps this mouse/mousepad set might be a terrific gift for them this upcoming holiday season.

Or, you could buy it for your young self to show off how cool you are to your other stupid friends and pretend you know everything about the 80s (which you don't).

Either way, it would be nice to have.
