The US military is still inundated with obsolete and unusable ordnance from as far back as the beginning of the Cold War. But rather than simply dispose of these old bombs by, say, blowing them up, one enterprising design studio is transforming them into helpful house wares.
Created by Stockpile Designs of Brooklyn, NY, the Megaton floor lamp utilizes the hand-polished casing of a Korean War-era 100-lb kinetic bomb seated 42 inches above the ground on a narrow stand—its explosive guts replaced with coax-wiring for its dual-bulb socket.

Man shouldn’t be able to see his own face – there’s nothing more sinister. Nature gave him the gift of not being able to see it, and of not being able to stare into his own eyes.

Only in the water of rivers and ponds could he look at his face. And the very posture he had to assume was symbolic. He had to bend over, stoop down, to commit the ignominy of beholding himself.

The inventor of the mirror poisoned the human heart.

Toho was a partner on the [new Godzilla] movie, and I was very lucky that I got to go over there before we started pre-production and meet with the whole studio. I had the whole tour and even got to hold the Oxygen Destroyer, which is what killed Godzilla in the original movie. They even gave us the original sound files for his roar for us to base our roar off. My idea was: Imagine that this was a real animal that really existed and back in the 50s. Someone saw this creature and went to Toho studios and tried to explain what they’d seen, this real thing. Then they tried to draw it and then they built a suit and made a bunch of movies made off of that description. In our movie, the idea is that this is what they saw for the first time, so you understand when you see it how they arrived at that design and that suit and all those movies that you made. Hopefully in our film it feels like the real thing, because of the effects and CGI and the technology we’re able to use in this film.

Someone described it as “I normally can’t stand horror stuff, but this one was short enough to stomach. Once. After that, it’s all nope nope nope, and I’m never turning my lights off ever again.”
