Non ELECTRONIC gas pump/dispenser. i.e. computer and readout is purely mechanical (pump itself may be electric motor driven).

those ones don't look very functional, but there are ones around at mom and pop gas stations that still work, plus if anyone globally was actually playing I'm sure there would be plenty in certain countries.

100+ octane gas...I wish!

No need to be in service - any condition is OK

These babies haven't seen gasoline since it was 36 cents/gal.

BARCELONA, Spain — Cellphones aren’t the only things on display at the Mobile World Congress show. Motorola is showing off its new headset, the Golden-i, a joint venture with mini-display maker Kopin.
The headset is a prototype hands-free terminal for use in construction or other tough environments where the user has his hands busy, but still needs a computer. Designed to fit under a construction helmet, the Golden-i puts a tiny screen up close to the eye which gives the equivalent of a 15-inch display, and also has a headphone, a microphone along with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for talking to other devices.
The headset is voice-controlled, and I tried it out. Once you have adjusted the eyepiece for your eyesight, you simply read off the names of the icons to access them: My Music, My Pictures and so on. The voice detection software, supplied by Nuance and called VoCon3200, ignores normal conversation, only listening to commands when there is a gap first, so you can say "my pictures" as part of sentence and it will be ignored.
What the ... does that have to do with a TAG game now??

btw - nice tags coming after all, good on ya, mates!
still snow here....

With so many people out there speaking and texting while they drive, I could just see a tagger watching the web while driving to see the latest posts. Betcha it's gonna happen.

AllBlackPearl,
There is an ongoing "discussion", regarding the various devices used by taggers to post/claim the tag. I myself have to take a photo, ride home, and post from my computer. Others, can post directly from their mobile phones, a decidely unfair advantage .
Blue Pill has had a computer surgically implanted into his skull so he never has to leave the seat of his iron hearse....

Not as old and not as nice looking...

But I think they match the need for this style TAG...

And yes they are still in use...



This is the front panel...



If this will work for the TAG, let me know and I will get something posted for everybody to look for tomorrow...

So as I was out looking for your new TAG theme...

I found what I would have liked to have found last night...

Old Style Gas Pumps...



But could not get any closer to them then this... Oh well... And if that was not enough, I found a Pig Roast going on near by and thought...





But NO I will not get that started...

But flame on for this TAG... Something with FIRE in or on it!!!



Kind of like the Olympic's, maybe...

Thanks for the explanation!
I hope this device shown by BluePill will never become legal over here. Horrible...

As for the TAGs - I still feel the game should not ONLY be about who is the quickest, but also about making really good, creative pictures. Cell phone pics might win the game in terms of speed, but they will not drive tears of joy into the eyes of people like me, waiting for the snow to vanish...
I want to see great bike pics! Hell yeah.

Don't you worry...!
"Great" is in the eye of the beholder.

ST Ranger, if the item used for fire is unusual enough, does the fire actually have to be burning?

ST, will this do. There is no fire at the moment, but it is an aircraft fire / rescue trainer. When burning the fire is quite nice!
