Prolific hacker Craig Smith digs up a toy from his childhood:

About 1983, when I was fifteen, I dropped my dad's red Bakelite soldering gun and broke the casing. Of course he was upset, so I did my best to "fix it." So I took my original Star Wars Han Solo pistol and gutted it to hold the soldering gun components. I even ran the lightbulb up into the scope on top. The button on the handle worked well for the trigger switch. Ten years later, when the old house was sold, the gun wound up in my belongings. To this day, when an underpowered iron just won't do, I pull out the "Han Solderer" and get the job done. Half of me likes the mod, the other half is ill over the fact that I gutted my vintage Star Wars toy. What's done is done.

If I don't blast your face off with my gnarly klaxon, maybe the justice gun on the hood will. Rumor has it the engine doesn't sound like combustion, just Iron Maiden guitar riffs.

Oh yeah, she's a real beaut. Brand new, loud, attracts all the ladies. The emissions are awful though.

In the Chinese province of Heilongjiang, the Public Transport Company replaced the emergency-use hammers with pairs of yellow bricks on all city buses.

"The special hammers are expensive and people were always stealing them," explained a spokesperson from the Harbin Public Transport Company. "We don't think anybody will be interested in stealing bricks."
