1. What is it? I got rid of my great-grandfather, who was a mathematician in the war.

Cryptographic machine of the Second World War. It works like that – in upper alphabets make up a word in a line, the lower alphabets will show how to encrypt it. Example with a similar encryption device Sphinx –

2. I call them “banned beach balls,” but what is it really?

These are special balls that are attached to wires and warn pilots of aircraft and helicopters at low altitude about the presence of the line. Thus, the pilot does not touch the wires.

3. We with the chef can not understand what it is. No, the plates do not hold. It’s worth this crap in the kitchen in the cafe.

As it turned out, this is fruit. Sadly, sadly …

This is a special container for cooking lontonga – the national dish of Indonesia. Lontong is a compressed sausage made from rice, cooked in banana leaves.
