A Candle Based on Gestapo Agent Toht’s Gory Face-Melting Scene From ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark’

by Justin Page

Melting Toht Candle

Firebox has released a fantastic candle based on Gestapo agent Arnold Ernst Toht‘s gory face-melting scene from the classic 1981 adventure film Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. It is available to purchase online.

No, we’re talking about when ruthless Gestapo agent Toht gets his gory comeuppance at the end of the film – you know, when his eyes roll back like a couple of boiled eggs and he lets out a blood-curdling scream as his entire face dribbles off his skull. That bit. Just awesome. He did Nazi that coming.

Whether it left you with nightmares for weeks or just had you repeatedly hitting the re-wind button, celebrate one of the greatest deaths in all of cinema history with the Melting Toht Candle. Thankfully this detailed replica won’t melt quite as fast so you can really savour the moment.

The original face-melting scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark for the sake of comparison:

The Schizophrenic Programmer Who Built an OS To Talk To God

by Soulskill
rossgneumann writes: Terry Davis, a schizophrenic programmer, has spent 10 years building an operating system to talk to God. He's done this work because God told him to. According to the TempleOS charter, it is "God's official temple. Just like Solomon's temple, this is a community focal point where offerings are made and God's oracle is consulted." [The TempleOS V2.17 welcome screen] greets the user with a riot of 16-color, scrolling, blinking text; depending on your frame of reference, it might recall DESQview, the Commodore 64, or a host of early DOS-based graphical user interfaces. In style if not in specifics, it evokes a particular era, a time when the then-new concept of "personal computing" necessarily meant programming and tinkering and breaking things.

IKEA has created a desk that converts from sitting to standing via a simple button

by Adam Epstein
Ikea convertible desk

By now, everyone probably knows that sitting all day at your desk can pose some health risks. And so the standing desk craze was born—promising hundreds of calories burned per day, and all kinds of miracle cures to boot.

With specialized standing desks costing well over $1,000, it’s not surprising that people soon figured out a hack to make a version on the cheap, using a table and a shelf from the Swedish furniture behemoth IKEA to cobble together a sturdy upright setup for around $30.

But even the most fervent standing desk proponents have pointed out that standing stationary all day, without sitting breaks, can cause some unpleasant side effects—meaning a standing-only desk isn’t ideal.

To address that problem, IKEA is now selling a desk designed to seamlessly switch between sitting and standing. The Bekant desk—which runs from $149 for its basic model to $916 for its “workstation”—offers an affordable option to people who want to avoid sitting all day but also don’t have the stamina or emotional resolve to emulate the Queen’s Guard at their desks.

Watch the Bekant in action:

There are a number of other standing desks on the market, but most are much more expensive than the Bekant or require manual adjustment. All Bekant models are adjustable between 25 5/8″ and 33 1/2″, which should comfortably fit most human beings.
