According to a post on the forums, future Crimbo was accidentally open for a couple of minutes: http://forums.kingdomofloathing.com/viewtopic.php?p=2153323#2153323 . I bet that's where this comes from. --Barstool 18:22, 4 December 2006 (CST)

Apparently there are 16 "devices". I've uploaded the rest of the images. Here are all 16:

Refs

For no particularly good reason I uploaded a diagram I found of a Feynman gate:

Could "Billiard Ball Model gates" refer to Bill Gates? Especially with the computer ref? --Andy00 23:52, 8 December 2006 (CST)

I don't think so; the phrase is used elsewhere (just check google); the word gate is just part of the terminology of the subject. --Starwed 09:38, 9 December 2006 (CST)

Another Ref? BASF used to run commercials for themselves with the tag line "At BASF, we don't make the products you know; we make the products you know better." Is this a possible reference in the line "Somehow, that makes computers work...more...better" or is it just a coincidential similarity in phrasing? -- Tanstaafl 12:10, 14 December 2006 (CST)

Message for the Closet

Interesting thing...

I tried to put my Feynman Gates in my Colossal Closet. It worked, but also produced the following message:


ferret bait (22) moved from inventory to closet. Feynman gate (11) moved from inventory to closet.

(That's ridiculous. It's not even funny.) filet of tangy gnat ("fotelif") (15) moved from inventory to closet.

Obviously some reference to the gate in the closet, but i'm not sure exactly...

That's the standard message on moving or receiving 11 of any given item at a time. Nothing special. --Lordebon 23:55, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
