Following up on yesterday's vintage drug ads: who knew 7-Up originally contained lithium? Between Coca-Cola and 7-Up, you had your uppers and downers within easy reach of the soda fountain back in the day...

Look out, Willy Wonka: a chocolate factory will be opening soon in Amsterdam.

For the fashion plates: you can buy (expensive!) Andy Warhol watches and learn, once and for all, how to tie a respectable Windsor knot. (The latter site also shows you many different ways to tie rope knots, and since it's animated you can actually follow along.)

The "By Kids, For Kids" invention site is very cool. Not only do they have a contest every year, but many inventions are truly useful (and at least one got its own patent and is being sold! Check out the Crayon Holder!).

The knot site is quite handy. Thanks for finding it.

Ah...lithium in 7-Up...

Those "soft drinks" often have such sinister pasts, since many often were initially marketed by drugstores and, well, snake oil salesmen.

Neat post. And, yeah, the Windsor tie link is very handy indeed...
