The Graflex 3-cell Flash Gun, originally used for large-format photography, was chosen for use as a lightsaber. There were, of course, several lightsabers used in the different movies. The most recognizable of them is the Luke Skywalker lightsaber, either Episode IV or Episode V.

This one should be pretty easy for people on both side of the pond.

What is this, what is it used on and what is its name (not the type of object, but the actual name given to this specific piece of art)

Yes, it's a Rolls Royce hood ornament, but it's not called The Flying Lady.

That's a Durian. They smell really bad, so don't think I could ever eat one, though they are supposed to taste really good.
