    Is that rifle ammunition on the desk? Random…

  2. jim

    haha. this is great

    Hope that’s not a heart in that beaker on the top shelf. With the ammo on the desk that zmarsh saw, it could be a 21st cuntury Frankenstein lab. Maybe the local “villagers” will storm the place with laser pointers instead of torches. OK- I’m done.

    Don’t touch those hard drives! That’s the backup!

    Safest ever, most of those look like Linux terminals

    dang, that pic is old. i say this not because the hardware looks old, but because i’ve seen it several times when lurking the interwebs throughout the years. please don’t recycle the internet :(

    The “beaker” is a CD or DVD cake box. And that is ammunition on the desk.

    Rest assured your workspace will be safe from other users. Surely that is what HTG meant by safest ??

    That is ammo on the desk. Take a look at the bottom monitor, far left, and you will see a box of Remmington ammo. So, it is possible, the ‘beaker’ contains the heart of his most recent kill. He could be pickling it.

    All the CRTs are going to turn that person into a mutant.

    i didn’t see the ammo box, but did see what looked like two 7.62 nato rounds and the rear end of a third half hidden under something. no big deal, i’ve got about 400 rounds of 7.62 nato, plus about 1,500 of .45 acp and 500 rounds of 9mm nato pistol, some .38 special and .38 super auto stashed away around my house. also some 12 guage 00 buck for the riot gun when the zombies invade.

    mutants? no sweat, we can handle them too.
