Basically, a local radio has a challenge where if you guess the source of this sound...


...you win a bunch of cash. So I come to the Pit for help. What the hell is this sound?
These are things that people have already guessed wrong:

An old credit card machine
An old rotary telephone
An old cassette player
An old camera flash
An old ViewMaster
An old abacus

The radio station did say though that it is something old, and that it was recorded at their office place.

Any ideas?
It's probably the sound of you not having much of a chance of winning.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
I think it may be a typewriter.

So we're supposed to figure the answer for you so you can win the money and not share it with us?

No. You get no help, my friend.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

I think it sounds like a typewriter or some sort of gun, but let's keep them coming.

Edit: that video is supposed to be a pixelated video of the actual thing that makes the sound.

I'd recognize that sound anywhere.

It's a plastic banana machine.

You don't want to know.


They say when they finally attack, all the impostors will peel themselves. In order to tell if you have been assimilated, check for a zipper somewhere near your pelvis.

Everything everybody's already guessed all going off at once.

Your post was the only bright spot in this disgusting piece of thread.

From further examination, this is exactly what it is. Makes every bit of sense.
Quote by chev311e
whoever said the clock in/ out thing might be right

Definitely is. Timecard punch machine.

or something technical sounding like that.
You can even tell in the video he's putting his time card in and it's getting stamped (or whatever it's called).
