Vampire killing kit, because it is better to stay prepared

Vampire killing kit, because it is better to stay prepared

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.

A hotel made out of key cards

A hotel made out of key cards


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.
