A dangerously desirable but expensive collection of old (and occasionally gorgeous) scientific and technical instruments. And 'clandestine' radios and cipher machinesI doubt that anyone on here can afford to buy any of the items, but it's well worth a look for dreams and inspiration.

I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.
Cry "Have at!" and let's lick the togs of Waugh!
Arsed not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for tea.

By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion

I wish I had money to buy some of the vintage electrical stuff.
