Firescreens based on famous fires (link roundup)

Firescreens by BBM based on the skylines of London and Rome (which suffered through massive fires). Via the whole internet.

And a few more links:

1. Supposedly, CBS' The Early Show on Monday will highlight "critical flaws in the police investigation (of Steve McNair's death) and raises troubling questions about the events leading up to the two deaths."

2. "China now controls 98 percent of the world's so-called rare earth oxides that are needed to produce sophisticated commercial and military components, such as electronics, lasers, optics, surveillance and communications systems, magnets and batteries." Via.

3. Photos of and information about James Dyson's new $300 bladeless fan. (And I thought Vornados were expensive).

*Previously: Fire demon.

*Buy vintage fireman toys at eBay.
