The Avalon Project at Yale Law School

This collections bills itself as "Documents in Law, History and Diplomacy". While some of the documents are purely of historical interest, many have current legal standing in international affairs. This is the place to go to find the text of the Dayton Peace Accords, the peace agreement that ended the Bosnian war; the Hay-Bunau-Varilla Treaty, which gave the US a chunk of Panama to build a canal; the Good Friday Agreement, which has brought some peace to Northen Ireland; and a wealth of many other documents.

Bert's Quarter Shrinking Gallery

Small tube electromagnets with very large power discharges make for a way to magnetically crush coins placed inside the tube. Bert's gallery has a selection of photos and description of the shrinker and a larger collection of photos of the effects.

The Museum of Communications

As described at String Can Phone:

The Museum of Communications is a no-frills homage to the history of conversing with others unhindered by distance. Located in Seattle, WA, the museum is a virtual warehouse of every communications device ever devised, including wired, indoors telephone poles. Of particular note is the display of six generations of fully-operational central office switch frames. We are so stirred upon seeing this collection that we are inspired to pick up our plastic, magically cordless telephone handset and ask the operator for Pennsylvania 6-5000.
