Made in Occupied Japan Pink Celluloid (Faux mother of pearl) Opera Glasses.  Made in Occupied Japan (MIOJ.  These collectibles are becoming exceedingly rarer these days as they were only made during the allied occupation from 1945-1952, a mere 7-year time frame.

Just finished playing Bioshock Infinite Burial At Sea Part 2 - I  enjoyed it, but once again, they managed to jerk at my emotions and made me want more.  I’d pay for a Part 3 & 4 - I just don’t know if I’d wait 4 years to see it.  And thus concludes the most hyped video game ever.  Loved it, but the DLC was too damn short.  Borderlands 2 knows now to make a proper DLC that lasts. :)  AFAIC Burial at Sea should have been Part 1, 2, 3 - instead of that joke of a first installment (shoot em up nonsense).  Part 1 of Burial at Sea was great, but Part 2 was superior thanks to a first person sneak strategy needed to play/succeed.

Concealed…
A very interesting walking cane that is actually a single shot .410 gauge shotgun. The trigger folds away so it is hidden and looks completely like a harmless cane. It’s of Belgian origin and design, somewhat old in design. I’m not sure what this would be classified as in the U.S…this example is located in the U.K.


Very nice concealed cane gun, shoots a single .410 shotgun shell.

Blowtorch lamp conversion: an old ordinary blowtorch that was sitting around my shop forever became a table lamp.  It wasn’t worth much as it was (maybe $20), and I had $3 invested in the thing.  I drilled out the burner to make a path for a cord.  The lamp parts came from a gutted lamp I paid 50 cents for at a garage sale that was fugly and in another box of junk.  It’s got an inline switch for turning it on and off.  All it needs is one of those cool retro flickering flame bulbs and it’ll look great in my shop or office space.  MAKE ALL THE THINGS!
