Trump Election Stein's Vote Recount

Green Party candidate Jill Stein has absolutely no chance of becoming the next US President. That position is already filled by President-elect Donald Trump who did what many thought impossible on November 8th.

The multi-functional Balldur is a Swiss Army lamp

balldur_h2 At its minimalist worst, the Balldur is a cool looking lamp. Smooth wood and ceramic with a bulb that would make Thomas Edison proud, the Balldur (whatever that means) feels like an artifact from a Terry Gilliam movie—and that my friends is a good thing.
