at 12:45 am. Filed under Contests

No emails this time, we are going to do another Guess what this isn’t contest since the last one was so much fun! Simply reply in the comments what this device isn’t. 🙂 Make it funny, crazy, weird… Just use your imagination. You can enter more than once if you come up with more than one thought. With a short vote the best comment will win the prize. The prize this week will help you install or trouble-shoot your LAN, it may save you some time when hunting out the problem wire connection. This contest will run from August 16, 2008 – August 21, 2008 . Ending time is based on central standard time.

Have a look at my first comment for an example entry.

The winner is Bill Beaty

"It’s the beam generator for DOCTOR LENARD’S HAIR TATTOO(tm). Whether your goal is a Lily Munster patch or a full body zebra-stripes treatment, Hair Tattoo comes through(tm). After the painful radiation-blisters fall away, hair follicles will be permanently altered to only produce filaments of frosty white."

Thanks to all who entered.

    Its what you put in your tv to get free cable…

  2. Slinky Says:

    Its the one and only scope for James Bonds one and only glass gun which will be shown in the new 007 movie “Quantum of Solace”

  3. Fran Says:

    It isn’t a heated cathode CRT with deflection plates, deflection
    yoke assembly and shadow mask with red, blue and green
    phosphors and electron beam velocity modulation with dynamic convergence. That’s what it’s not. And, no I never was
    a TV repairman.

  4. Eric Says:

    It’s definitely a 1940’s thermometer for babies with Hydrocephalus.

  5. steven Says:

  9. cde Says:

    That isn’t a water bong. That CERTAINLY isn’t MY water bong either…

    Give me three minutes, a filter and some duct tape, and it might be…. ;P

    It’s gotta be the at-home three step colon detox kit. I went through three of these puppies back in the 1960’s during the great colon scare. They were state of the art at the time, an oasis in the desert, replacing the traditional finger method. A true testament to the ingenuity of man. This one doesn’t look like it’s been used yet though.

  11. Slinky Says:

    Its what my dad burned me with when i spilled paint in the garage…

  12. kiwitv Says:

  14. Almost_There Says:

    That isn’t a Chamber Pot, is it?

  15. Fran Says:

    It looks like Alan must be on vacation or he would have removed
    about half of the comments. My great-great grandfather was from
    Ireland, btw.

    So, does anyone know what contest #56 was?

    One more guess as to what it’s not. It’s a test apparatus for an automatic
    cow milking machine. If the machine can get something out of this, it’s
    working really well.

  16. Nuclear Says:

    I can tell you what it’s not. It’s not what you think it is.

  17. Fran Says:

    Actually, it is what I think it is, I just can’t tell you what I think it is.

  18. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Fran,

    Not on vacation. 🙂 The last contest winner will be announced tomorrow.

  19. Garv Says:

    The Braun tube, this small early 1900 tube is in fact a cold Cathode Crookes tube with an internal mica screen covered with phosphorescent paint. The neck contains a glass diaphragm with a small 2mm hole to let only a tiny electron beam go through (focus) which can be deflected by an (electro) magnet to produce a spot on the screen.

  20. Jacob Says:

    This is obviously a time space continuim distortion array used in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III however in the movie they had to disguise it so people would not try to steal it and they also wanted to use the sound effects from the classic Dr. Who.

  21. tim Says:

    duh. its a glass dildo for squirrels with large hands.

  22. OnkelGrape Says:

    It’s the past home of a genie-in-a-bottle genie.

  23. spiders88 Says:

    It’s not a dick of a glass-elefant, because glass-elefants don’t got weird extentions on their dicks.

  24. harald peters Says:

  25. nuclearfirebox Says:

    It definitely isn’t what it’s never supposed to be, it is however what it isn’t supposed to be.

  26. yon Says:

  27. nuclearfirebox Says:

    It’s the only way to make a good cup of coffee around here
