You can never be too careful, there’s no saying when a crazy vampire will just jump out of the shadows looking for blood. The solution of course is to keep a vampire killing kit at hand. Made out of ivory, the kit was constructed in the early 19th century.
It includes “an ornate ivory-mounted Christian cross integrating a steel, spring-loaded, .41 caliber single-shot percussion pistol, the center mounted with an ebony shield surmounted with a 8-pointed crown, the tips made from tiny semi-precious red stones. A ruby red five-pointed star adorns the center. The vampire pistol is contained in an ivory case, together with steel dagger blade which attaches to the end of the cross, an ivory cleaning rod, ivory powder bottle, and cap and ball supply” The kit is up for auction.

Key cards are commonplace in every hotel, this one though, is all full of them. Designed by Holiday Inn, this hotel is made of 200,000 key cards and weighs 1814 kilos. Hell, even the toilets are made from key cards, and I have no idea how they intend to get that thing to work. The exhibit was built by Holiday Inn to celebrate the relaunch of 1200 of its hotels.
This image shows how satellite cameras for Google Maps see airplanes. Apparently, the planes move too fast for the cameras to handle well, so we get those RGB phantom planes as well. The image is of the Hyde Park in Chicago.
The idea behind the tongue bookmark is to tone down the looks of the conventional bookmark a bit. Rather than sticking out blandly from the book, this piece of beech wood remains placed softly in the books.
Apparently inspired by Japan’s giant Gundam statue, Chengdu Guosetianxiang amusement park in Sichuan, China, is building its very own giant Gundam-lookalike statue. The 49 feet statue is probably just a model and not a functional/robotic Gundam.
A true warrior would never leave the side of his weapons, even if all he/she needs is a toothpick. Ergo, the Samurai sword toothpick holder finds plenty of use. The set has a mini sword handle and a scabbard style case, setting the ambience for the war with food. Costs $83.
