To satisfy the inner Gyro Gearloose in all of us, try the Museum of Retro Technology, a well documented and perfectly delightful site hosting pictures of wonderful late 19th and Early 20th Century technology, such as monocycles-of-war, aerial sonar systems for detecting enemy bombers, steam-powered Segways, gyroscopic railroads and an underwater cannon system designed for sinking Confederate ironclads. Those combination armored troop carrier/dirigibles you drew on your notebook in third grade have found their home!

Petronius, Thanks for the very enjoyable and educational time sinkhole. From there.. I found GizMag, almost as bad.
