Play Tetris on your fridge

Tetrismagnets Now you can get your Tetris fix while deciding between a late-night snack of cold pizza or leftover Chinese takeout.

The guys over at the Art Lebedev Studio in Russia are currently taking preorders for this 7-piece magnet set that can be adorning the white wonder in your kitchen as early as November for less than $10.  I agree that the price is a little suspect, but how much do magnets normally cost? Another odd thing is that the set is being advertised under the name "Tetrius." Then again, any site that includes  a quick lesson on Greek etymology is reputable in my book. So here’s a little "Did you know?" trivia gleaned from a little blurb that used to appear on the page:  the Greek word "τέτρα" (tetra) is roughly translated as the word "four," which is why all Tetris pieces are made up of four little squares.

Leave it to the Russians to teach Americans a little Greek.
