The item to not to guess was an old radio., not that it mattered for this contest. πŸ™‚ I was amazed at the number of comment entries and was it ever fun reading through all of them. My sides hurt and I still have a partial tear in my eye from laughing so hard. πŸ˜‰

It was hard to narrow it down to one, the winner after much debate is TBlough for comment number 30.

“Does anyone really realize how much danger we were in during the Cold War?!?!? This is the Russian β€œΠ”ΠΎΠΌΠ΅Π½Π½Π°Ρ ΠΈΡ… Π² ад” MKIV Nuclear β€œFootball” that was used in the 50’s.

The warhead coordinates were entered by the red punch tape (this picture is a file photo showing a dummy tape loaded – you can see it is encoded with all β€œ1β€³s). The identity of the operator was verified with the um… β€œprobe” connected to the red and blue wires.”

The winner is TBlough.

Thanks to all who entered.
