2010 Winter Olympics Gold Medal

The 2010 Winter Olympics are coming up in Vancouver, BC. The gold medals will be made out of recycled circuit boards, which is pretty cool, because recycling is good and waste is bad. Reduce, reuse, recycle. Also, if you are on fire, stop, drop, and roll.

Tangentially, I've read that Vancouver grows some of the best marijuana in the world. I wonder how many of the snowboarders will pass their drug tests...

Burning Cities Firescreens

The modern day skylines of Rome and London burn in your fireplace. Pretty ingenious, and the potential for other creative things to faux-burn is endless.
