Stunt Granny Audio Presents: OHPA 88 – Antikythera Mechanism, Wintergatan Marble Machine, Short Wave Radios & Titanosaurs

Ken & Kevin are back with OHPA trying to bring both quality and quantity to this site. They do so by talking about the normal wide ranging topics. Up first on their docket is the Antikythera Mechanism, which is considered by some to be the world’s oldest computer. When was this device originally found? Why have some few of these mechanisms been found? What would have happened to our world if generations after the Greeks had truly strove to create a computer at a much earlier stage than they were invented? Was this mechanism created by aliens? They move on to a machine that was built by a human and it involved a lot of marbles. It’s called the Wintergatan Marble Machine as the video above notes. What is the machine made out of? How long did it take to come up with this machine? Can it play more songs than the one the video plays? How talented are you to be able to play this music and come up with the machine? There’s one short wave radio in Russia that no one is sure who is playing the static coming over it. Is there anything on there aside from static? Is it possible that these are message for Russian spies? If so, why hasn’t anyone solved the code to this point? What else could it possibly be used for? Last on the docket for Ken & Kevin is talking about the Titanosaurs of Argentina. How much larger are these land walking mammals compared to regular dinosaurs? How large is a modern day hump back whale? The guys also have a tasting at the end of the show with Sevent Son’s 2015 and 2016 versions of Chester Cooperpot, a Smoked Altbier. Grab a Bell Time Beer of your own and enjoy the show!
