Found the perfect piece of decoration to hang beside my soldering bench at a thrift store this morning - an instructional poster for a 1960s Soviet military geigercounter (type ДП-63-A), complete with circuit schematic!

@solderpunk I actually had one of those back when I was crazy. Bought it about three months before getting committed :)

@xmanmonk Yeah, I have to admit I searched eBay pretty much straight after making that post, and found one in the Ukraine for about US$35. I thought about it very briefly! Hope that's not a sign of impending madness...

@solderpunk There probably is a valid entertainment value to it, so I think you're okay :)
