So, do any of you own anything really old? Anything antique, timeworn or just plain ancient? I own this old Geiger counter, I think it's from the 60's and it came from the Oak Ridge laboratory in Tennessee. It's pretty much useless as a working Geiger counter and totally obsolete but it has these cool looking lightbulbs and it's fun to turn it on to show guests, set it to 'test' and then act freaked out when they suddenly register at 1billion rems. Spoiler : I also own some fossils I dug up but I can't find them at the moment. They are ~250 million years old Spoiler : Archimedes Screw The fossil of this that I have is a bit smaller than this but comes to a point at the end, it was the tip of the screw, so to speak. Crinoids All I have of the Crinoids are the stems, which are much more plentiful than the tip that is in the above picture Then there's a pair of flip-flops that I bought between 1999 and 2001. They are only remarkable because they're so old; usually flip flops last a year tops. I didn't wear them very much for most of the time I've had them. Now that I have a puppy and have to put him out every hour or so, they have gotten a lot more use and probably won't last the year out. Does anyone own anything really old that normally doesn't last very long such as flip flops? Any cool antique stuff? When my fossils turn up I'll post a pic.
