Bullet Proof Wife

A man with a rifle tests an early version of bullet proof glass (filmed in the 1930s) - with wife holding glass in front of her face. I guess, this is the ultimate test of a wife, too:

Sweet Obsession: KitKats!

The largest collection of KitKats (about 140 flavours) is in this set, plus the info - courtesy of Jon Climpson. There are blueberry KitKats, watermelon & salt, toasted soy flour (kinako), fragrant black tea, blood orange.... Some are Tokyo area limited editions, rarely seen anywhere else.

Of course KitKats are lucky in Japan - KitKat ("Kitto Katto") sounds a bit like "Kitto katsu", which roughly means "You're sure to win".

Re: Aerocar - Gorgeous! And it's especially darling with the wings and tail removed.

When I finally get around to writing the mixed-up 1930s-60s vacuum-tube-punk pulp masterpiece, my heroine will certainly drive something just like that.

And then when I become filthy rich by selling the option to Hollywood, I'll buy that one.

The angels hiding their faces are pretty cool -- but don't look away. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead.

Beware of the weeping angels....
