Wasp Sucking machine. This one gets filed under "ok, now what?" It's remarkably similar to the Bee Vac I posted a while ago, but I must admit the plexiglass window for "showing off your catch" cranks up the awesomeness index. While we're on the subject, check out the History of Apiculture in Warfare.

Stereoscopic Images of Lighter Than Air Flight.
Instructions for viewing are here, although I personally find freeviewing to be very difficult, so I'd add the suggestion that you could save the images, swap the left and right images, and view them crosseyed, or use a program such as Stereo Photo Maker to generate anaglyph images for red/cyan 3d glasses. The best way, though, is to use a viewer, even an inexpensive plastic one.

The St. Marys Challenger is a 100-year-old steam powered cement freighter operating on Lake Michigan.
Found via this set of photos on Flickr including shots of the Skinner Unaflow engine.
