Rummage sales! Interesting. Very interesting. You can pick up some pretty cool stuff. So tell me about your adventures. I just got something.

Only problem with having this is that I would need 3 ... I repeat THREE 22.5 VOLT BATTERIES ....

To run it.

Name what it is, can you? Hm? It's pretty old, also very... Odd and unique I guess, never seen another one of these anywhere. I know what it is, do you?

It's, quite obviously, a transmogrophyer!! tongue.gif

Okay, okay, I haven't got a clue!! My Nanna used to buy tons of crazy crap at rummage (or for those in the UK: "jumble sales"), sales - she bought home a marijuana plant once not knowing what it was... or so she claimed! wink.gif

THAT could be a geiger counter. I dunno, but it might ... Put it this way: if it isnt you could easily pretend that it was. Just weld some headphones to it, stick'em on and walk into the local spuermarket chain wearing a white exosuit (preferably inflated with air) and looking worried, and I'm sure you'd get a reaction ...

Ding ding ding... I think the "CD" on the side would give it away. CD would be "Civil Defense" and well... It's a "Radiological Survey Meter Chatam Electronics model CH-720"

It's from the cold war time period.

$3.00!

Oh and Pab, this particular one doesn't have headphones.

Cool! smile.gif

Now are you wearing an exosuit and looking worried, as Pab suggested, or hanging around outside government buildings??

I need to get a white exosuit and three 22.5 volt batteries.. Then lock the meter at like 4r/hr laugh.gif

We could use Mata's idea of how to have fun... Only have somebody with the geiger counter walk around the park a bit!

Ah but if you cant get the batteries, headphones would go a long way to make people think there was a problem ... You could walk past a person, look confused try somebody else, fiddle the nobs, go back to the first person, look a bit pannicked, go to a third, quickly go back to the first again, and in a fit of pannic take out your mobile and pretend to talk on it urgently whilst quickly walking away so they can't tell that you in fact called the speaking clock, and occasionally looking over your shoulder with a worried look on your face ... The summer holidays would fly by ...

Why exactly did you need to buy something to check radioactive activity?

You could of course walk around an old "disarmed" submarine they have in France that I went around. And look worried, then run out screaming "WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!"

Its what they use to detect readioactivity in a place ... its that one that makes those clicking sounds and when the radioactivity level goes up the clicks get faster and when it suddenly starts screaming blue murder then you know that you're about to grow a third arm and have your skin fall off in scaly lumps ...

Dagnabit, you beat me to it!


Why would one sell that a garage sale? Who has a geiger counter just kicking around the house? Either a civil worker with light fingers or some... group of anarchist militia who planned on starting a new world order and started buying up government surplus for when after they had destroyed every other facet of the government but only got as far as the geiger counter and some surplus boots before they got bored and decided to go have a beer instead.

Actually I believe the guy who invented it was called Whassisface Geiger.

I know that Becquerel was a guy too...he named the measurement of radioactive decay after himself.
