    Stupid crap I've bought? Well a couple weekends ago I bought this huge lot of Player Piano rolls! Most are dated from the 1930s.

    And no, I don't own a player piano, there is an apple orchard out in western MN who still has a working model.

    Pocket cannon, eh? I have a cousin who used to work at a foundry, Alamo Iron Works. He took a large piece of billet steel and made a cannon that is about I guess, three feet long, and the barrel diameter is about that of a beer can. He does not shoot projectiles, but on New Years and other holidays he fires it off. Quite the report, and if you are standing behind it, quite the shock wave. No pictures, though.

    That pocket cannon is really neat. Quite a projectile weapon...

    Also 3D printers are intense.

    For some reason I am a container freak, so the stupid things I buy include a lot of tins with artwork, decorative jars, little wooden craft boxes, empty cigar boxes (though a lot of those are empty because I smoked them. :P), etc. Also shelving with drawers or boxes with lids. Most get used, but not usually in the most efficient way.
