Last night I got the biggest surprise ever. I am completely and utterly floored that my CA buddies got me something this awesome for my birthday.

Now I'll just say for those who don't know, I am a huge Rocketeer buff and I have been jonesing for this helmet for at least half of my life. In fact, the only thing that I want more than this is a Delorean, and that's a freaking car. This helmet is a limited edition reproduction of the hero prop used in the film, and is hand crafted out of solid brass just like the one Cliff wears in the comic. It is gorgeous! And it proves that I have cooler friends than you.

Thank you guys so much, you made my 22nd birthday a special one indeed.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...check out what this warning tag on the helmet says.

Um...yeah right.
