“It’s a classic,” Boghardt says of this 4.5 millimeter single-shot weapon, presumably taken from a KGB agent in the mid-1960s. While it’s unclear whether this dangerous “kiss of death” was ever used, a cyanide pistol was used for assassination in that era. These covert weapons are surviving examples of the “active measures” that were taken in this time period, unlike many of their intended targets.
And I’ll wrap it up with this. Because between the giant racing exoskeleton and this showcasemobile from the luxury RV-outfitter — equipped with a hot tub, helipad and automatic seat-lifting toilet (with 2 modes for…figure it out) — I declare that Furrion wins CES 2017.

It has a sophisticated 153-point AF system and 9fps bust shooting speed. The D850 is just as home shooting wildlife, landscape, and portraits. He thinks it could perhaps be the most well-rounded camera he’s ever seen.
“I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on my next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I was so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550
That became even evident this week when the FBI announced the arrest of 10 alleged Russian spies living and working in the United States and a couple of years ago, when the CIA released World War II era personnel files, including one for chef Julia Child, who did admin work for the intelligence service back when she was Julia McWilliams.
This is is a simple character-building game. It relies on reaction time, calmness, and the ability of a player to tune his her own reflexes to the point where they are lightning sharp. The idea is for each player to grab a handle, press the button, and wait for the suspenseful music to play. Once the music finishes, a light will shine in the middle, at which point all players have to pull the triggers on their handles as fast as possible. The last player gets a very small and very mild electrical jolt. Quite exciting, to say the least.

The Pocket-sized: While this offering from Anker will only give you about one full phone charge worth (3,350 mAh), the fact that it’s only a little bigger than a tube of chapstick more than makes up the difference. It can also auto-detect your device to offer the fastest charge speed possible up to 1 amp.
Messages sent over the wireless in the World War II era could be intercepted so the Germans used a cryptographic device. On the surface, the Enigma cipher machine looked like a regular typewriter, but it wasn’t. A keyboard was linked to rotors, powered by an electric current, which transposed every keystroke several times. Corresponding messages went out in Morse code and required keys, which changed daily, to decipher — get it? “De-cipher. ” Which is exactly what the Allies did, cracking a code the Germans thought was unbreakable.

If you’re not able to press the button, don’t stress—you can also set it so that if the case is too far away from you and somebody tries to open it, the shock is released and a loud alarm sounds. To really add insult to injury, you can also have the manufacturer customize it to release tear gas and/or dye explosions when the case is opened.
