THE JUNK BOX IS GOING OUT TODAY!

 

Duct tape added for extra longevity!  No burnishing though. 

 

I added a little wrinkle for myself -- I put something in the box specifically for the first recipient.  Will my guess be right?  It will be interesting to see if they take that specific item.

 

In any case, the box should arrive Tues or Wed in Atlanta,  THANKS!

No worries, we are an easy-going bunch.  Let's see how the timing works through the next few people on the list.  If we need to adjust the list, we'll move you down.  I'm going to guess you'll be just fine right where you are.

Looks cool -- what's the oval blue thing, and the circular black thing lower left?

 

The internet says that the Pong unit is one of the last ones to be made -- sold in 1983!

A handheld tetris game. Tetris being my favorite game ever i ahd to grab this and a 20 question game. You think of an object or a thing and it asks you 20 questions and tries to guess what you are thinking. I remember having one and it actually works really well.

Also are you next in line ballblazer?

YES!  I knew Justin liked Pong, so I added one from my personal collection just for you!  I love it when a plan comes together.  :mr_t:

 

 

Next question any kmow what ac plug goes with this pong? My 2600 plug doesnt fit

 

If you have a universal adapter (that's what I used), it's the one smaller than the 2600 plug.  I think they call it a 1/8". 

 

I'm so glad you found some good junk to keep.

You are always welcome to join.  I think we've set the timeline to have a junk box (or secret santa) once per quarter.  So start saving your junk!
