The pic with the two police officers is pretty interesting to me. I like how there's a whole story captured with the Rivera guy wild eyed and tapping on the screen and the other dude so over whatever Rivera is worked up about.

I also think the one with the military officer is interesting as well. According to my old computer teacher who served as a computer operator and network technician for the Air Force in the 80's, people weren't allowed to take pictures of the computer screens. It also looks like the picture was taken at 1:30 in the morning which is interesting. I think on the locked "secret" terminal screen "25th DPU" Stands for 25th Data Processing Unit.

It's really crazy how many of those 4978 keyboards they have there. I'm counting 7?

Very sad that so many of these got scrapped, the 4978 would be my endgame keyboard, no joke.
