Happy Tuesday! As you can see, we’ve begun the giveaway madness; there will be many more in the near future.

Today’s links are not necessarily steampunk, but are historic. For the most part.

Remember the gag boxes of the 1920s? No? Well, fear not, because Collectors Weekly will show you what you’ve been missing!

A few of the “artifacts from literature we wish were real” in this Flavorwire article are gorgeous mechanisms, like the alethiometer and nearly everything in Willie Wonka’s factory.

Is icycling real? Well, it was for a short film, at least. Seems fraught with peril, though.

Lastly, consider the Nutmeg Wars. It’s sort of a ghastly story.
