  1. Actually, it isn’t.

    It’s a German encryption device that whenever you key in a letter, a light comes on that corresponds to that letter, which is either written down by hand, or the letter that is “lit up” is actually printed via a typewriter (I forget which).

    It was used during WWII, and was quite effective as encryption, because eachtime a key was pressed, the system would reset the light system accordingly, making it (for all intents and purposes) impossible to crack.

    oh… wait. xD I get it, the name of that gizmo is the enigma.

    Kaze are teh dum.

  2. Yes. It’s an enigma. An enigma that has was solved in 1932… Which also makes it a paradox, since by definition, an enigma cannot be solved…

    Ok. I admit it. That was sad.

    Phyreblade r teh stupid.
