It has now been over TWO WEEKS since it was possible to buy a pizza in this town.

I think I'm suffering withdrawal.

@Austin_Dern

In a Purge scenario, I have to imagine a lot of documents are destroyed. If you can delay an investigation so that it happens after purge day, you can embezzle as much as you like, or commit whatever business crimes you like.

Oh, you say I made millions by ignoring union rules? Too bad all my payroll documents burned last purge!

Figured out what that weird gun I found in a stock photo was.

Not a gun at all (despite the stock photo's description). It's a powder tester. There's no place for a bullet, just powder. The force of the shot spins that dial around, and you can precisely measure how good your powder is.

@Catpult Oh. I get it now.

The lack of a barrel was the key. The barrel is actually that vertical can to the right of the hammer.

It's a powder tester. You fire it and the blast spins the wheel.

@Catpult I also don't know if the legs up front are part of the piece or just for the photo.

Looking more closely, I'm not even sure it IS a gun. If it has a barrel, it must be very narrow.

@Catpult Just a stock photo site. The entire description is "Antique Pistol". So that's useless.

Any gun nuts out there?

What's the mechanism that's attached to this antique handgun?

Is it a self-timer like on a camera? That seems like a bad idea.

@Taweret Oh. I guess you mean those monitor's behind the desk.

I'm sure that the computer could add some modesty blurs as needed. Although I wouldn't put it past Odo to just scoff and disable that functionality.

@Taweret Are the cells visible from the promenade?

I thought there was a door between his office and the holding cells?

@Taweret You're making it too complicated.

They could just be playing poker with Riker.

@glintacp It may be overheating.

First steps should be to make sure that the fans are spinning and that it's not caked with dust.

I bought a calculator watch off eBay for One Dollar.

Now I can be exactly as cool as I was in 7th grade.

@squerk @Taweret I think most spider legs are only hydraulic in one direction,and they rely on muscle-like tissue to pull the limbs back the other way.

So that makes them cyborgs. Obviously.

There are no problems with this logic.
