Heh, we’ve got a show about collecting on (funnily enough called “Collectors”), and each week they have a mystery item.  Last weeks was the ballot box!  It’s fun trying to figure out what some of this stuff is, and what it may be used for.

There’s a new set posted up. There are two of them that I may be able to figure out (#844 & 845) because I KNOW my grandfather had both of those things in his garage. Problem is, he’s dead, so I’m going to have to either call my father or my 95 year old grandmother and hope they know wtf I’m talking about (highly unlikely, lol)

I have to say that all of these items are extremely cool and if I came across them in a junk shop, I’d definately buy them.

I think I know at least 3 of the new ones, but will keep it to myself as to not ruin it for others.

I know three of them, and should know the fourth but I’m blanking here.  The fifth is obvious what it does, but what specific purpose it was intended for eludes me (the puncher).

Generally, I think clever wrong answers are better than the real answers.

Of course there’s the one-size-fits all answer:  you put your WEED in there.

I’ve got a Twilight Zone DVD—and among the “extras” was a clip from a game show that Rod Serling hosted.  I disremember the name of it, but it was just like this—a celebrity panel was given some thing (usually bits of machines or obscure tools) and had to come up with an explanation for it.  One was secretly given the right answer, and the others were trying to trick the contestant.

This Old House has a similar segment.


Joe, I don’t think it was the same show (because I don’t think Rod Serling hosted it), but there was a game show in the 70’s called Liar’s Club that had the same premise. It was my favorite show when I was little.
