Death Ray of Cleveland

According to this historic article a death ray machine was created in Cleveland, OH in 1934. This death ray apparently had the capability of killing things with frightening efficiency "turning blood to water." Witnesses to demonstrations of the machine are said to have seen it kill dogs, cats, and rabbits instantly when the ray was directed at them. The ray was supposedly supressed by the government until it could be used for "defensive" military purposes. Check out the full original article scan HERE.

Stuck in Asphalt

This Flickr photo set from user STR820 has some truly unique images of random things that have been pressed into asphalt. Cans, keys, and random scraps of metal. The most interesting thing about these pictures is that they almost seem like fossils of our current time which one day may be studied like we study the dinosaurs. There is sort of an eerie nature to them. Check out the photo set HERE.
