Let’s get this weekly post started right. I am surrounded by weird technology. For my first Stuff, we have this… thing. I have no idea what it is. None.
It, along with many other random pieces of technology that remain unidentified, was found as we were tearing down the old school lab to build our new one. I asked around and nobody know what it was for. We do know that it came from our local smelter when they were giving way a bunch of glassware to the local high school. It was an “all or nothing” gift. This was part of the “all”.
Over the last few years we have come up with many possible uses for it. It’s often been a piece of equipment that, when asked, I tell the students that they’ll find out eventually, then I laugh the Dr. Evil laugh, pet my cat and turn around slowly in my chair… of course, I then have to turn back around to teach the class again.
It’s been a device that is used to separate Midi-chlorian from the bloodstream of people so that I can steal it to become a Jedi (that one I want to be true, but I’m still mad a George for ruining my childhood). Finally, there is the obvious “glass-object-with-a-place-to-put-a-herb-and-a-place-to-light-stuff” section, but this is a classy website, so I won’t mention that use.
Any ideas of what it is?
