Just recently I've purchased:
A steam engine (model stationary type) plan to see if I can power a computer with it.
A hand cranked dynamo (it comes in a nice wooden case). I wonder what happens if I attach the electrodes here and here, then turn the handle really fast.
I also have my eye on more weird stuff.
Someone please stop me! I'm like a kid in a sweet shop.
Or more like an addict... "Just one more weird thing off ebay then I'll stop. I could stop now, if I wanted... I just don't want to right now. You don't understand, I need these weird things!"
