The gun that John Wilkes Booth used to kill Lincoln in 1865.
Gun used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln
Friends of mine proved why we treat ALL guns as loaded. They pulled one like this out of a trunk and were discussing how it was like the one that killed Lincoln and had been stored for a few generations and it was "Not loaded" and then shot a ball of lead a half an inch into the wood floor when the trigger was pulled.
The quite incredible Land Of Giants in Iceland
Sculpture, Electric Pylon, Idea, Design Concept, Products Design, Landscape, Human Figures, Human Body, The Wire
American firm Choi & Shine Architects designed these conceptual electricity pylons shaped like human figures to march across the Icelandic landscape. Each pylon would be assembled from modular parts, which could be adapted into various positions to given the impression the the statues are walking, climbing or crouching. Over long spans, the pylon-figure stretches to gain increased height, crouches for increased strength or strains under the weight of the wires.
Iceland. Kudos go out to American architecture firm, Choi+Shine Architects, for this innovative and fun design concept featuring 30-metre tall electricity towers that are shaped like human figures. The project, entitled Land of Giants, was awarded the 2010 Boston Society of Architects Unbuilt Architecture Award for its unique conceptual approach to power solutions in the Icelandic landscape.
There are few things as universally loathed as electricity pylons, and a few years ago Iceland’s Landsnet held a competition calling on designers to create more aesthetically pleasing varieties. One notable entry was the sculptural...
Choi + Shine proposal for new Icelandic High-voltage electrical pylons. Dubbed “The Land of Giants”, the proposal would create pylons shaped like human bodies made up of recyclable, prefabricated sections. How cool is that!?

Behold the Glowing Glory of a Sunspot In Unprecedented Detail. When you stare at the sun it just looks like pain. But when the New Solar Telescope (NST) does, it can catch glimpses of truly mesmerizing solar activity, and all without going blind. Here, for example, is the most precise picture of a sunspot ever taken, in all its flaming glory. It's like a solar black hole in a field of molten stained glass

T Rex Skeleton made of balloons
When you think of 'balloon art,' you probably think of a birthday-party clown twisting rubber into things that are supposed to be Schnausers and giraffes but end up looking like, mostly, balloons. In truth, though, balloon art can be so much more. Check out these selections by Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle of Airigami.
