The SS Officer belt buckle pistol was an experimental German World War II firearm consisting of four 7.65 mm or .22 long rifle barrels and lockwork concealed within a Nazi Party belt buckle. The barrels were 2" long and the wearer needed to get very close to their victim. A lever was pressed which allowed the spring-loaded buckle to pivot downwards, exposing the barrel. Noted firearms authority S.P. Fjestad claims that they were designed by Louis Marquis while he was in a prisoner of war camp during World War I and that fewer than ten of these guns have been discovered.

YouTube can be an entertainment, learning, money making, and even a tutorial platform. Cara Brookins, along with her four children, followed the latter to build "Inkwell Manor". In 2008, Brookins and her four children (then aged 7, 15, 11 and 2) left her abusive husband in search of a better life. So, they temporarily found a tiny home outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, until a more permanent place could be established. Her initial plan was to buy a house, but they passed by a house ravaged by a tornado, and thought it would be a perfect project for the family. "Once I had bought all these supplies and they were all piled up, there was no way out. There wasn't enough money to pay anyone to put them together. There was no plan B. This was 2008, so YouTube was not then what it is now. There weren't really comprehensive videos or channels devoted to this sort of thing. But there's a lot of ways to frame a window or to put a foundation together. So, we would watch three or four videos for each stage of construction and then think, 'Which one of these is going to work the best for us?,'" recalls Brookins.

Unlike traditional hybrid-yachts, the "Solarwave 64" has been specifically designed for long-range solar-cruising, using the power of the sun only, thus removing the need to start the diesel-engine since battery-capacity is predetermined for more than one night of permanent cruising. However, if he sun doesn't shine for several days, a range-extender offers a safe alternate power-source, guaranteeing fully-charged batteries while removing weather dependency.

Reddit user "MeTarzanYouJane" tried taking pictures of a full moon, but accidentally captured a mysterious ghoulish figure while in burst mode. This isn't a lens artifact the uploader says, as the figure casts a shadow. "The time frame between the two photos was approximately 2 seconds. What interested me is neither of these family members have heard of photo shop; much less used it. This was taken in the front yard of a house they had recently purchased and hadn't even completely moved into," adds the user.

Bellus 3D takes cameras to a whole new level, or to be more specific, they've created a 3D face camera for mobile devices that scans 500,000 points on your face in high resolution. Once scanned, the company sends you a file that can be transferred to a 3D printer to be fabricated into a mask. This is made possible with the infrared scanners on its camera, and once the Bellus 3D app is launched, you basically position your head within an outlined parameter, look ahead, turn to the left when asked, and then again to the right. You can see and zoom in on every wrinkle, pore and hair follicle in full color on the scans. Click here to view the first image in this week's things that look like other things gallery.
