Wrote Kevin Kelly:

I don't care what you say, the World Weekly News was an awesome publication.

I subscribed to it for years.

I had it mailed to my office at Wired.

I read it because it had the greatest headlines EVER.

Now entire decades of its epic awesome back issues are available for free here.

The way we like it.

Fair warning: there goes both the day and your mind.

The big question is, can you take it through airport security? 

No idea.

I'm thinking sometimes it'll be confiscated, other times not noticed.

You pays your money and you takes your chances.

If, like me, the rest of your life is a No-Fly Zone, you're all set.

One more thing: if you look closely at the photos you'll note that a tiny Phillips-head screw secures the blade to a metal shaft integrated into the device,

allowing you to remove the business end.
