Dick Cooper It is a 17th century tea cooler from Krakow. In the old days, the Dutch perfected the technique of pouring hot tea on to a saucer and blowing on it to cool. Then a small group of Polish Tearistas invented this red ceramic cooler called a “rufaschiwesselski,” (Polish for red tea cooler) poured the hot beverage into it and pointed the opening to the prevailing wind. The process was short-lived because the American inventor Steve Jobs discovered you could get four ice cubes from the freezer, put them in the tea, and get the same effect.

Laurie – Portable Urinal

    This new hoseless fire hydrant eliminates the need for tangled hoses — it just sprays water directly at the fire once the cap is removed.

    A French device for baking herbs in duck fat. If eating too much duck fat, or alcohol to heroin, try a 12 step program!? We’ve made a fun introduction via illustrated fine original art http://www.the-twelve-steps.com
