If you've been meaning to gently stoke fear among your pesky, nosy neighbors but haven't figured out how best to do it, may we suggest investing in a set of these Human Skull Logs and prominently scattering them in your backyard firepit.
Best Pizza Restaurants NOT in NYC
These morbid curiosities -- each roughly the size and shape of an adult human skull -- are fashioned from the same sort of steel-reinforced, high heat-resistant ceramic material that NASA uses to test on rockets, meaning they'll easily endure being whipped by flames in your firepit/fireplace since they're designed to handle temps up to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. They're also totally weather-resistant and each weigh a hefty 10 pounds, so you can safely leave them strewn about outdoors year-round -- you may want to keep a closer eye on them though considering they're $65 apiece. And if the charred black model doesn't evoke quite the sinister vibe you're striving for, there are also versions available in brown or white.
