Wrote Benedict Evans: "A fascinating murder trial in London from 1769 — skip to the end and see the character references. (The whole archive of the Old Bailey, London's central criminal court, is searchable here from 1674 to 1913 — see what else you can find.)

Fair warning: there goes the rest of your life.

One-Handed Bottle Opener

From the website:

Charleston architect Rush Dixon's innovative throwback lets any host handle the drinks and entertainment with just one hand.

Inspired by the long-forgotten Theodore Low bottle opener from the 1930s, Dixon's one-handed marvel references the old while meeting the demands of the modern entertainer.

With a squeeze of its thumbhole trigger, this seamlessly designed device pries off the top and catches the detached cap with the help of an ingenious magnetic fulcrum.

This sophisticated interpretation of the classic bottle key is cast from stainless steel, then polished to give it a little sparkle.

Plus, each stylish accessory comes in a keepsake tin case with an old-fashioned aesthetic that evokes the nostalgia and charm of the soda fountain.
