The tangled web woven by Week 22 of the Caption CERN Contest has come to a close. It's been another bumper week with 112 comments. Thank you to everyone who submitted a caption! We realize it may have been hard for some of the network engineers out there to type through their tears, but thank you for persevering! While we don't know exactly what these two CERN scientists were wiring up, rwells97 did figure out that the scope in the image is most likely a Tektronix 545/A, which was a popular scope back in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The weight on a beast like that was around 70lbs!
- "Dude, this one's full of wires too! Every single one of these is full of wires! Why would anyone need so many wires? What in the name of God were they DOING down here?" - The Green Gentleman
- "Getting to blinky" required a whole lot more work then the engineers realized..." - Kieran Paulger
- "I think I lost an electron back here, Bob. I'm positive." - Christine Hampton
This week's winner is alan with the following quote:
Alan is a Computer Science PhD candidate, with focus on computational biology, specifically population genomics. Hopefully he has some hardware in the mix somewhere, because we're sending him a Stickvise from The Hackaday Store!
