Now I know where those whacky computers seen on old sci-fi TV shows come from.

Someone can tell me what this thing was supposed to do? Control the hatch door of the anti-nuke shelter, maybe?

We've all realised by now that the picture is actually a fark photoshop of a submarine control panel, haven't we?

Either that or MTB Babe's return made slashdot after all.

The giant steering wheel would appear to be for playing early sailing simulators. Now the periscope add-on peripheral, that was an optional extra.
