World's Largest Collection of World's Smallest Versions of World's Largest Things. If you need that explained, you're in luck. Consider it the ying to this thread's yang.

So if quantum mechanics only works with small things, and classical mechanics applies only to big things, then this collection should give us the long anticipated Theory of Everything.

It is not surprising, as a native Kansan, that this comes out of Kansas.
So little to do, so much time.

Hey, the Mefi Swap mix I just sent out was titled "Yin/Yang". Spooky.

Also, I love the description of the curator. I wonder if she's ever met Wile E. Coyote at a convention or something?

Neat post. Many thanks.

Through her travels, she has written a Graduate thesis titled "Driving Around Looking at Big Things While Thinking About Spam"

What school was that? I've been meaning to go back to school to earn my masters.

This is very neat. I wish there were more pictures.

Also, the Challenger Start kits make me giggle.

Well, this demonstrates the value of specialization, I guess.
