Silver tetradrachm bearing Alexander the Great minted 336-323 BC in Babylon, the place of his death, plus or minus 10 years or so. It was likely struck during his lifetime, or shortly after his death, in the city in which he lived. That’s kinda cool.  Its a fairly high value coin, it would have been worth a weeks wages or so back in the day, probably enough to buy a goat. It’s worth a fair bit today, so I could probably still buy a goat with it, and have some to spare. It’s a pretty good strike, a little worn on the back, but overall in pretty fantastic shape for a 2300 year old silver coin. The face on the front isn’t actually what Alexander looked like, it’s a stylized version depicting his godly kingly self, in the form of Heracles. #coin #ancient #alexander #greek #babylon #alexanderthegreat #numismatics #silver #tetradrachm #drachma #money #ancientcoins #oldcoins #oldmoney #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #greek

4th-5th century AD Roman padlock. It’s rusted out pretty badly, but at some point about 1500 years ago, this was the lock on someone’s front door. It’s so corroded now, I can’t even pick it up to display the other side without pieces falling off, so this one doesn’t get handled. #ancient #roman #macedonia #antiquities #lock #padlock #oldlock #key #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #thrace
Uranium glass marbles are fluorescent under ultraviolet light.  They’re about 3% Uranium by weight, so they’re very mildly radioactive, but it’s really only dangerous if swallowed.  #uranium #radioactive #depressionglass #vaselineglass #marble #marbles #fluorescent #ultraviolet #glowinthedark #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious
Julian and Ethel Rosenberg were executed as spies in 1953, by electric chair. They stole atomic bomb secrets, radar/sonar, and jet engine technology, and sold them to the Soviet Union. They recruited others to spy for them, such as David Greenglass from Los Alamos labs, who provided them with nuclear secrets.  Their children long maintained that they were framed, but VENONA decrypts in the 60s made clear just how totally guilty they were. Julian recruited sources, Ethel evaluated candidates, participated in recruitment, and hid money and tradecraft tools. #spies #spycraft #coldwar #atomic #nuclear #secrets #soviet #tradecraft #spy #rosenberg #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Fossil crinoid from the Bundenbach slate formation in Germany, approximately 350-370 million years old. I fucking love crinoids. They’re filter feeding animals, similar to a modern day sea lilly, but they fossilize like flowers. The level of detail on this specimen is fantastic. #fossil #crinoid #devonian #fossilized #rockhound #minerals #marinelife #ocean #sealife #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious
Azurite sure is pretty. Even a mediocre specimen like this one still looks great.  I’m not sure what the white mineral mixed in on the front side is, but I assume the back is calcite or quartz. #azurite #copper #mineral #crystals #rockhound #blueasfuck #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #mineralspecimen #minerals
I wonder if @elonmusk has considered the merits of bubble based fuels?  If you’re gonna build a tunnel to Mars, it helps to have a combination fuel/lubricant/handsoap.

Elmwood fluorite with spessartine garnet, and sphalerite. Fluorite might be my favorite mineral, it’s just so fucking pretty.  Mines like Elmwood and Rogerly produced some absolutely ridiculous mineral specimens. This one is beautiful but there are specimens out there that will leave you breathless, guaranteed.  There was a tradition in some mines that the miners could keep anything they find that fit in their lunch box. Commercial mining companies are in it for bulk, not specimens. Miners are smart though, so they started bringing in giant rolling coolers for lunch boxes.  This is how Elmwood specimens came to the market. It’s a shame that the mine operator doesn’t allow this anymore, it’s sad to think of all the beautiful specimens that would just be destroyed and ground to bits for fractions of a penny. #fluorite #minerals #rockhound #mineralspecimen #elmwood #crystal #spessartine #garnet #sphalerite #mineralporn #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #geology

Fossil brittle star (furcaster palaeozoicus) of the Devonian period approximately 375 million years old, from the Bundenbach formation in Germany. The level of detail is amazing in Hunsruck slates, it’s almost microscopic.  I love the three dimensionality of this fossil. The way the arms are so delicately draped over each other is fucking rad. One of my favorite fossils for sure. #starfish #fossil #fossilized #seastar #marinelife #ocean #devonian #bundenbach #hunsruck #slate #germany #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #rockhound #mineralspecimen #brittlestar #seastar

WWII American propaganda exploiting common Japanese stereotypes of the era. It was commonly believed that the Japanese had poor eyesight. This stereotype was used to promote the idea of American military, and cultural superiority.  In reality, the Japanese had a highly trained, well equipped naval Air Force that was more than a match for American forces in the early stages of the war.  The turning point for the Japanese was the battle of Midway, where an American counter-trap was sprung, sinking 4 Japanese carriers and killing most of their best pilots. It was all downhill from there for Japan. #wwii #propaganda #worldwar #worldwarii #wartime #douglass #ephemera #oldmagazine #stereotypes #racism #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

The fuck?  This is for people who don’t want to hold their own cigarette while playing cards.  The weird thing is that the angle in the pic is wrong. It actually holds the cig perpendicular to your fingers, sideways. All I see this doing is ensuring that every ash falls directly on the back of your hand. Fucking stupid. Neat though.

Monster 12.5” prison shank with a 7.5”, well sharpened blade, and shaped plastic handle. This thing is an absolute beast. It’s made like an actual knife, with a comfortable handle and pommel to make it easier to maintain a grip.  The handle is made from melted plastic, probably sourced from plastic bags. The blade has a cutting edge for fucks sake, it’s ridiculous. Normally these things are built to be easily hidden, I don’t imagine it was very practical to hide this on a person. Whoever made this was an artisan, one who wanted to make a lasting impression.

Bullet wound X-ray from 1912 on glass. It’s either a funny angle, or it’s a roundish projectile, which makes me wonder if it’s a shotgun pellet?  It’s right in the meaty part of the shoulder around the upper trapezius so maybe the rest of the pellets sailed over the shoulder, I dunno.  The patient’s name was JB Woollard, and it was taken at the St. Francis Hospital in Topeka, Kansas on August 18, 1912. I have no idea what all the numbers mean specifically, but I assume they’re for the radiologist to interpret.  #xray #bulletwound #gsw #gunshot #shotgun #shooting #antique #radiology #xrayoftheday #stfrancis #topeka #medical #medicine #hospital #emergencymedicine #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Newspaper from August 14, 1945, the day before Japan agreed to surrender in WWII. The second atomic bomb had just been dropped on Nagasaki and everyone is wondering how that could possibly not be enough.  There’s an even more interesting article kind of buried under the  headline. The author of this article had interviewed Admiral Kimmel, the base commander at Pearl Harbor on December 6th, exactly *one day* before the surprise attack. He was asked his thoughts on the prospects of war with Japan. He was like “naah, ain’t gonna happen and let me tell you why.” 24 hours later, Pearl Harbor was attacked. The article was now subject to censor, so the author sat on it for almost 4 years before finally being allowed to publish it the day before the war ended. I don’t know why I never heard about this before, but that’s kinda nuts. Have you ever gotten anything *that* wrong?  #wwii #newspaper #oldnews #vintage #worldwar2 #japan #atomic #nagasaki #surrender #kimmel #pearlharbor #wartime #censored #news #headlines #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #wrong

The five Platonic solids.  There are exactly 5 polyhedrons that can be constructed where every side, and every angle are equal. Basically that means a pyramid of triangles, a cube of squares, 2 back to back pyramids, twelve pentagons in a dodecahedron, and 20 triangles in an icosahedron, like a 20 sided die.  That’s all of them, it’s not possible to construct any more. These aren’t exactly oddities, but it’s kinda neat. #platonic #plato #solid #platonicsolids #math #geometry #science #proof #cube #tetrahedron #pyramid #octahedron #icosahedron #dodecahedron  #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Chinese propaganda poster from the 1950s.  It says something to the effect of “In the Second World War, the Soviet Union wiped out German and Japanese fascists” and “The Peoples Liberation Army has been wiped out from 1946-1950 by American imperialism.  American invaders will lose.” Based on the text, I’m guessing this was during Mao’s reign, but before the relationship between China and the USSR went sour. If so that would place this poster right around 1950-1955. My Chinese is limited to google translate, so the translation is probably fairly rough. # china #chinese #propaganda #propagandaposter #vintage #ephemera #poster #vintageposter #worldwar2 #wwii #coldwar #ussr #imperialism #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #communist #communism #postwar

3 patch motorcycle club jacket for the “Devil’s Brigade” motorcycle club. Apparently it’s the name of a club in Grand Theft Auto. It was also legitimately used by a group of vets that started a motorcycle club in Southern California. It’s  in good condition, so it’s probably not that old. I’m kinda leaning towards this being some kind of GTA memorabilia, but I’d love to be wrong and find out it was from an actual “outlaw” mc club with 3 patches. #mcclub #biker #bikergang #outlaw #onepercenter #club #gang #grandtheftauto #highsierra #motorcycleclub #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Used prosthetic hip implant. Sometimes people get upgrades to newer models. It’s pretty amazing how well hip replacements work nowadays, considering how absolutely brutal the procedure is. That ball has to replace the one on the end of your current femur. So, they cut you open, yank your hip out of the socket, chop the end off with a bone saw, then hammer the spike on the new one down through the soft marrowy center like a railroad spike. Then they put you back together, and in a few weeks you’re up and walking again.  Crazy. #prosthetic #implant #hipreplacement #hip #surgery #prosthesis #medical #science #surgical #hipsurgery #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Fluorapatite from Afghanistan.  Interestingly, this is the same mineral that protects your teeth from decay after drinking fluorinated water. The enamel on your teeth gets its strength from a mineral called hydroxyapatite. Its pretty durable stuff, but it can be attacked by acids. Fluorapatite is even more resistant to things that cause tooth decay.  When you drink fluorinated water, your body incorporates the fluoride into your teeth, making them stronger. Also, it’s kinda pretty in crystalline form. It glows under UV light, which makes me wonder, do your teeth still glow under a black light if you don’t consume fluoride?  Is hydroxyapatite fluorescent too?  #fluorapatite #rockhound #mineral #mineralspecimen #fluoride #teeth #bone #toothdecay #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

A very small piece of the Moon, courtesy of the meteorite NWA 4881.  It was blown off the Moon into space by an asteroid impact, ultimately colliding with Earth. Lunar meteorites are relatively rare, largely because they’re very similar to Earth rocks, since the Moon and Earth are made of the same stuff.  If you think about it, there must be many undiscovered lunar meteorites on the earth. It’s the easiest and most likely place for them to end up.  Apollo moo rocks are illegal to sell, but meteorites are almost as good. They’re from the same moon, they’re just a little more weathered having typically hung out in a desert for a few tens or hundreds of thousands of years waiting for someone to recognize it. This particular specimen came from Northwest Africa, thus the NWA in the name. #meteorite #moon #lunar #space #achondrite #asteroid #rockhound #breccia #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Fired WWI era 100mm artillery shell. The nose is smashed, and it’s rifled so it was fired, and hit something pretty hard, but clearly did not explode. It could be a training round of some sort, or I suppose it could be a dud. It’s demilled now, so there’s no risk of it exploding on me. It does have a fuze, so I dunno if it was originally intended to explode, or not. I love militaria, but I don’t know much about it. About all I know is that it’s 100mm, and about 275mm in length, and probably WWI-ish. #artillery #shell #fired #war #wwi #ordinance #fired #pewpewpew #shrapnel #fuze #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Whales rib bone. I have no idea what kind of whale it’s from, but it appears to be relatively old, going from the patina.  I’m not sure if this was a natural find, or if it dates to the whaling era.

Sweet Bugle is apparently a mild sedative and throat tonic derived from Bugleweed. I believe it was considered useful for treating symptoms of tuberculosis, but I’m not terribly positive. It seems to be some sort of herbal concoction similar to cough syrup. The bottle is unopened, but about 80% of the contents have evaporated over the decades, leaving a thicker sludge in the bottom.  It’s quite a large bottle, about half a gallon when full. It also seems to be fairly old, perhaps late 1880s-1900 based on the bottle construction. I’m not really an expert on all those details, so I’m not really sure. #tuberculosis #cough #coughsyrup #oldbottles #medicine #quack #quackery #antique #medical #consumption #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #medicinal #antiquemedical #cough #sickness

The “Pear of Anguish” is an Inquisition era torture device used to punish heretics and blasphemers. There is a relatively common misperception that these devices were used anally or vaginally but there is no evidence of that actually occurring. In fact, these devices were used orally as a punishment for heresy and blasphemy. It was not used to inflict severe pain or lasting damage, it was used to fill the mouth, causing considerable discomfort, along with an inability to speak, or swallow yer drool. A real one would have a rounder tip, ya know, like a pear. Still relatively fucked up, but nowhere near as terrifying as getting goatse’ed by one. Mechanically, the mechanism is nowhere near strong enough to open up fully, if used “internally”. There’s no way you could apply enough force to the crank to cause it to open before the petals snapped off at the weakest point. Still, it’s a pretty terrifying thing to look at, and contemplate. #torture #pearofanguish #pear #torturedevice #inquisition #spanish #replica #medieval #heresy #blasphemy #punishment #bdsm #kink #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #historical #torturecouture
The “Pear of Anguish” is an Inquisition era torture device used to punish heretics and blasphemers. There is a relatively common misperception that these devices were used anally or vaginally but there is no evidence of that actually occurring. In fact, these devices were used orally as a punishment for heresy and blasphemy. It was not used to inflict severe pain or lasting damage, it was used to fill the mouth, causing considerable discomfort, along with an inability to speak, or swallow yer drool.

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that causes a rare lung cancer in humans called mesothelioma. With a mortality rate of basically 100%. The long fibers get trapped in the lungs, never to come out. Carbon nanotubes are probably gonna have the same kind of issues a decade or so from now, as they likely cause similar types of damage to lung tissue for essentially the same reason, long fibers that get stuck and cause persistent irritation. It’s quite useful though, and is still safely used in a number of products, like car brakes. #asbestos #poison #cancer #mesothelioma #asbestosremoval #cancerous #oncology #cancerresearch #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #mineral #mineralspecimen #rockhound

I bought this pair of thumb cuffs like 30 years ago, when I was 14 and decided I wanted to learn escape magic and impress people with my thumb escape skills. Know how many opportunities I’ve had to put them to use? Zero. Escaping handcuffs looks much cooler, but basically boils down to hiding a key.

Original US land grant document signed by President Ulysses S Grant in 1873.  It grants 160 acres of land to a trapper named Lewis M Hulet, who  founded the town of Flandreau, South Dakota. This particular parcel of land is now occupied by Flandreau Park in Flandreau, South Dakota. Hulet convinced the first postmaster to move the county post office to Hulet’s house, because it had been observed that having a post office increased the chances of convincing other people to move to your town. Hulet was in competition with a man named Gibbs who was simultaneously attempting to form Gibbsville.  It wasn’t enough to win the battle of the towns though. He went and stole Gibbs housekeeper too,  since he didn’t have one himself. Gibbs was understandably irritated, so he threatened to shoot Hulet with his musket. Hulet was having none of that, so he shot Gibbs first, while he was watering his horse.  This lead to one of the very first court cases in Moody County. Good job guys. #grant #president #usgrant #southdakota #flandreau #gibbs #hulet #hewlitt #usa #landgrant #history #historical #ephemere #document #official #ulyssessgrant #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Sodium + water = boom. Alkali metals all react violently with water. The reason is kind of interesting. See, Sodium has this one awkward electron in its outer shell that it really doesn’t like having around. It’s so aggressively trying to dump this electron that it can even break apart H2O, releasing free hydrogen, NaOH(lye) and lots of heat, which melts the metal, ignites the hydrogen, and ultimately causes the whole thing to explode when the reaction gets out of control, throwing blobs of red hot, molten, flaming Sodium all over the place.  It was fun to hose down the driveway afterwards and see all the little poofs of fire from the remaining sodium.  The Sodium hydroxide left over is lye, the active ingredient in drain cleaner.  I wouldn’t call it clean fun, but it is fun.  Science is neat. #explosion #sodium #lye #hydrogen #boom #bang #alkali #chemicalreaction #reaction #chemistry #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Wait for it!  Sodium + water = fire + bang. Alkali metals like Sodium are extremely reactive with water, producing large amounts of hydrogen gas, and heat. Throw some oxygen in the mix, and you’ve got a small explosion brewing. The reaction produces so much heat that the metal melts very quickly, forming a liquid blob of sodium that reacts even more quickly with water.  The liquid sodium sends out little spikes of sodium that increase the surface area in contact with water even more. So it starts out with some fizzing hydrogen gas, gets hot enough to ignite the gas, and then gets reactive enough to just explode cuz it’s had enough of this shit. #sodium #explosion #fire #chemicalreaction #reaction #chemical #water #boom #bang #exothermic #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Tintype photograph of a black man from somewhere around 1880ish. I have no idea who he was, but I suppose if he could afford to have photographs taken of himself, maybe he was at least financially well off. It’s hard to say he was doing well for himself, considering the civil rights situation in America at the time. Any time I come across stuff like this, I think about their descendants, what they’re doing now, and how much it would blow their minds if they saw it. It always feels a little bit wrong to find these in antique shops. For me, it’s an unusual photo. For someone else, that’s their badass of a great-great-great grandfather.  They probably don’t even know. #tintype #oldphoto #1880s #history #blackhistory #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #photograph #antique

1970s Soviet propaganda poster saying something to the effect of “Unity!” For some reason, I’ve been contemplating the complexities in unity, and wondering if it’s even a noble goal.

Prisoner of War Resistance manual produced by the US Army(FM 21-78). The guide explains interrogation techniques that can be expected, and methods/pep talk for enduring it. It’s interesting the way it describes torture. Soldiers are expected to withstand what they can, but it actually explicitly says that the only condition under which it’s acceptable to reveal information, is under extreme pain. You’re not supposed to accept favors, or special treatment. It contains sample tap codes and explains their use. The goal is to establish a resistance, undermine your captors in any way you can, and if possible, escape. #prisoner #pow #usarmy #instruction #torture #communism #coldwar #ussr #code #resist #resistance #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Early 1900s(?) Odd Fellows Conductor’s robe, hoodwinks, wire mask, some medals, lodge bannner, and a fancy velvet helmet/face protector of some kind. I bought most of this as a set from a single person so I think most of itcame from the same lodge, Golden West 322 out of San Francisco. This robe would be worn by a fairly high ranking member of a lodge, and would be responsible for receiving new Initiates, and conferring more advanced degrees to existing members. The hoodwinks would be worn by an initiate, allowing the conductor to open and close them as needed to allow the Initiate to see whatever scene they were intended to see, then blinded again before moving on to the next part of the ritual, allowing the stage to be reset for the next scene. The mask would be worn by members while acting out the role that particular mask is supposed to represent.  The Conductor would be wearing the masked helmet, I believe, to hide their face/identity from the Initiate. Of all the secret fraternal orders, the Odd Fellows are my clear favorite.  #Oddfellows #fraternal #odd #mask #hoodwinked #antique #conductor #initiation #ritual #collection #wunderkammer #oddities #oddacious #secretsociety #lodge #ioof

This Oddfellows monkey mask made from papier-mâché in the early 1900s by the Henderson-Ames company, for a lodge in Long Beach, Ca. It would have been used used during initiation rituals when one of the members adopted the character for the purposes of acting out a mini-play. I’ve seen odder things than that at Trader Joe’s.

Lead blocks radiation, right?  Wellll, sorta. What most people don’t know is how much lead you actually need to achieve reasonable protection. For example, this is a small chunk of high grade uranium ore. Outside the lead pig it sends the Geiger counter clear off scale. Inside the lead pig it’s still leaking significant amounts of radiation. I wouldn’t want to carry this rock around in my pocket. I don’t even like taking it out of the pig. It scares me more than pure uranium metal, because it’s dusty and friable.

1950s collection of daily love letters between Michael Cards and Mary Bonnickson. Mike wrote Mary a letter every single day for more than a month straight. They appear to be high school sweethearts, since they met when Mary was 16. Mike prays for her “intentions” every day at mass, meaning he prays that she will marry him.  Mary lives in Phoenix, Arizona, Mike in Excelsior, Minnesota. He’s had to give up on “prancing through the daisies” and get a day job like an adult. Mary is worried that he’s found himself another girl, after he tells Mary about meeting an ex-girlfriend who’s now engaged to his friend, so he spends several letters trying to convince Mary that she’s the only woman he’ll ever desire.  Mary is coming to visit in August, so they write to each other through June and July as Mike expresses his undying love, while she sends him pictures, and perfumes letters in return. It’s really touching, wish I could post all of the letters for continuity, but here are a couple sweet ones.  Unfortunately, I only have the letters from Mike to Mary, none from Mary herself, except for one that was obviously written when she was a child, maybe 8-10 or so. #valentine #valentines #valentinesday #love #loveletter #loveletters #vintage #1950s #lovestory #sweethearts #highschool #highschoolsweethearts #engagement #intended #betrothed #letters #writing #ephemera #lovenotes #daily #dailyletters #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #bemyvalentine #sweet #heart #hearts

In spite of their crude form, Prismatic blades are some of the most advanced stone tool making technology. In fact, they’re the the earliest example of human mass production and disposable tools. These two prismatic blades would have been popped off from a roundish core like the obsidian one on the right. Dozens to hundreds of individual blades could be produced from one single core. This allowed early humans to make single use blades for butchering meat. Rather than carry a bunch of delicate blades that break easily they could just pop one off a razor sharp shard from a durable core and dispose of it when done. If they needed a new tool one could be produced in seconds to minutes. #prismatic #stonetools #flintknapping #knapping #flint #obsidian #core #tools #stone #rock #human #ancient #prehistoric #fossil #technology #science #humanity #toolmaking #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Original 1890s photograph of a dozen LGBT women having a club party. One of the women looks a lot like Alice B Toklas, but I’m not sure where this photo was taken.  Right around this time the first consumer level cameras were being released, allowing these women to take the photo themselves, without involving a professional photographer. A photo like this would have been dangerous in the 1890s. Pretty brave. I’m super pleased to have acquired this, it feels like a piece of forbidden history.  I’d love to figure out who these people were. It would be cool to track some of these women’s  relatives down, and show them what a badass their ancestor was. #lgbt #gay #lesbian #lgbtsupport #photograph #antique #vintage #oldphoto #sepia #history #gayhistory #lesbianpride #lesbianlove #gaypride #pride #lesbianhistory #1800s #alicebtoklas #history #historicalphotos #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Written in 1961, this comes at the height of the Cold War, just before the Cuban missile crisis, so nuclear paranoia was peaking too. This guide was produced for civilian use to describe the potential effects of a nuclear attack, and what to do if one occurred. Basically, get indoors, in a concrete building if possible, as high off the ground as you can get, since the fallout will end up irradiating ground level.  Then wait your turn to die. With any luck, you’ll go in days instead of weeks to months.

Woo!  I got anthrax!  Not just any ol’ anthrax, but abnormal anthrax!  Can you tell I’m excited?  This slide is over 100 years old, from 1904. I dunno where the specimen itself is from, but this definitely came out of a collection of medical specimens. #anthrax #disease #pathology #science #medicine #medical #slide #microscope #antique #vintage #bacteria #spore #pathogen #epidemiology #epidemic #biological #biologicalwarfare #bioweapon #research #toxin #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Police mugshots of 4 suspects arrested in Alameda, CA in 1953-1955. For extra credit, try to guess which one is the sex offender.  Just kidding, they all look like sex offenders.  Especially #1. That’s a guy who keeps heads in his freezer. #2 looks like a Soprano. #3, the older guy has a name written on the back of his mugshot, “Gramps Mcgillicutty”. There’s a photo for the ol’ family album.  #4 looks like that guy from high school that was in prison by 21. #mugshot #mugshots #police #crime #criminal #alameda #policephotography #photography #photo #blackandwhitephoto #sepia #suspect #arrested #cop #blackandwhite #lawenforcement #leo #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #perp

These were sold to me as African “cannibal dolls” from the 1940s, but I’m not really sure. They do have a baby, but it considering it’s all swaddled and stuff, I’m guessing it wasn’t for eating. I’d like to find out more about these, not sure if they’re even African.  Maybe pygmy, or PNG? They’re some kind of plastic, doesn’t feel like Bakelite. #doll #dolls #baby #african #pygmy #cannibal #cannibalism #antique #vintage #dollskill #africa #tribal #tribalart #collection #wunderkammer #oddities #oddacious #png

Eugenics books always crack me up. Inside the cover it says “Designed in particular for fathers and mothers, young men and young women with the earnest hope that millions the unborn may have the inalienable right of being well born.” So, uhh...which ones have the inalienable rights, and which ones don’t?  Do only some babies have inalienable rights?  I love their strident paranoia about masturbation. Eek, it’s sex mania!  Look out! #eugenics #book #literature #antique #vintage #oldbooks #masturbation #sex #sexmania #poison #cure #anatomy #crazytalk #disease #oddities #oddacious #collection #wunderkammer

The spider and the fly trapped and preserved in 35-55 million year old Baltic amber. There are actually 2 flies and a spider, and some plant material in there, but one of the flies is obstructed. I love amber fossils because they’re just so perfectly preserved, and crystal clear. If you look closely you can even see the spiders fangs out as if it’s ready to chow down on some fly. At least it was, until it got outrun by an oozing tree and frozen in time for the next 35 million years. #amber #baltic #balticamber #balticsea #fossil #fossilized #spider #fly #spiderandthefly #insect #preserved #eocene #tree #ooze #plant #preservation #frozenintime #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #specimen #web #spiderweb #ancient #rockhound #minerals #capturedmoments #entomology

Proconsul africanus is a 14-23 million year old fossil primate. It contains a mixture of monkey-like, and ape-like features leading to its placement at the point where these two populations split from each other and diverged evolutionarily.  It may be the common ancestor of all modern apes, including humans. It’s probably closest to something like a modern gibbon. #replica #fossil #proconsul #consul #monkey #ape #oldworldmonkey #family #primate #primates #africa #fossilized #museum #animal #bone #skull #dental #leakey #anthropology #paleontology #miocene #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #head

U.S. Suspect livestock ID tags. My first thought was that they belonged to the penal system in some way, but they’re actually used to tag suspect livestock so it can be inspected for parasites or other undesirables. I suppose that’s cold comfort to something that was going to be eaten anyway. #suspect #agriculture #meat #meatlessmonday #meatpackingdistrict #meatpacking #beef #pork #cattle #pig #usda #inspection #idtag #id #tag #food #hygiene #disease #parasite #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious #livestock

Unopened bottle of “Dr.” Hommel’s Haematogen.  Feeling run down?  A few spoonfuls of cows blood and alcohol will fix you right up.  The instructions say it’s delicious with soda water. Blech. Why do they mix it with alcohol?  Probably so you can forget the cows blood. Either that, or the booze prevents coagulation.  I can imagine what blood flavored soda would taste like, and I’m pretty sure “delicious” isn’t the word.  Oh, his first name was Adolf. #blood #cow #iron #anemia #deficiency #supplement #alcohol #animal #bloody #disease #goth #gothasfuck #gothicdecor #gothicstyle #dark #vampire #vampires #oddities #oddacious #collection #wunderkammer

I’ve always wanted some tuberculosis, I’m pleased to finally have a specimen. It’s miliary tuberculosis which means it’s advanced to the degree that it’s invaded other tissues in the body outside the lungs leaving behind small lesions the shape and size of millet seeds, thus the name miliary. It’s curable with an extended course of powerful antibiotics, but the mortality rate is still about 20-30% in adults even with treatment.  Unfortunately, it’s a zoonotic disease, meaning we can catch it from animals.  It’s not likely to be something we can eliminate like smallpox, especially with really nasty multiply resistant TB bugs out there now. Some even resist the last resort antibiotics.  #tuberculosis #tb #disease #lung #lungdisease #miliary #antique #medical #medicalspecimen #pathology #diseases #who #cure #antibiotics #bacteria #slide #bacterial #microscope #microscopy #photography #microscopephotography #oddities #wunderkammer #collection #oddacious #science #medicine #

Throwing some 3-4” lightning with my van de graaf generator. Its neat to watch the hair get blasted around with every shock as it gets pulled back and forth. The shocks are coming in at about 250,000 volts, but the current is so low that it’s actually quite harmless. It feels a bit more intense than the shock you get touching a door on a windy day, but it’s fundamentally the exact same thing, static electricity.  An invigorating start to the new year for certain. #electric #electricshock #spark #lightning #zap #zot #shock #vandegraaff #generator #electricity #science #shock #newyear #electrickiss #vandegraaffgenerator #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #oddacious

Video of the SpaceX launch from Vandenberg last week. You can see the first stage reorienting itself for landing after separation.  Fucking rad.

1980 counterculture zine “Basement Nukes The Consequences of Cheap Weapons of Mass Destruction” by Erwin S Strauss. The previous owner took a lot of notes in the margins, Its always interesting to see what other people thought was important enough to highlight. The booklet describes basic science behind nuclear weapons, discusses various ways in which obtaining fissile material may become easier to obtain over time, as nuclear technology spreads beyond superpowers.  It’s pretty gloomy, but it’s not all wrong. There are definite parallels to the world we live in today. #basement #nukes #nuke #nuclear #atomic #zine #counterculture #erwinstrauss #coldwar #apocalypse #nuclearblast #nuclearwar #oddacious #wunderkammer #collection #oddities #book #books #superpowers

I’m pretty sure these are the coolest glasses ever made. They’re not just stylish though they’re mad functional. They’re fucking binoculars, I’m telling you. Binoculars with built in sunglasses that look sexy as fuck at either an opera, or sporting event. Name me one other pair of sexy ass binoculars. Go. Take all the time you need. I don’t understand why a fashion visionary like Kanye doesn’t bring these back, like pronto.
