You're getting warm. It's a bit closer to home, though. 'Rings' is a keyword.

Maybe put on the intro theme from 'Independence Day' to get you into the right mood. The picture is courtesy from a certain space agency, indeed.

It's not a battery at all. In fact it has no electrical components whatsoever...it's a solid disc, with a concave dent in the middle of the top.

When you put that they're sponge-backed, it got me thinking. Sponge backing is typically used to absorb shock, cut down on vibration, or prevent slipping. Do they maybe go under speakers?

YES !!

But only for a very specific reason. To protect nice wooden floors from the Spikes screwed into the underneath of speakers to fix them in place and so disperse the energy through the cones instead of through the cabinet !...same applies to smaller speakers on speaker stands which also have spikes.....sorry for the anticlimatic answer....still love me ?



If your floor is carpeted then you don't need them..they are purely to protect  nice wooden floors from speaker spikes, which make nice holes !!

Nipples [:)]You people, that's all you ever talk about sex sex sex sex sex your all sex mad if you ask me.

Take a look at the photo again, notice the central peak  follow by the complex ring-shaped uplifts. The geological evidence proves beyond all reasonable doubt its the center of a complex impact crater of around 50 km across formed by a meteorite hitting the earth, and judging by its fine detail i would say the shot was probably taken last Thursday at 08:56 AM using the Hubble telescopes (ACS) high resolution camera.  

Damn i'm good[:)]

Is it either...subject to vibration or the moment has been caught when a drop of milk hits it ? [:)]

Correct Neilep, vibration it is.
the cup of coffee is on a surface which is vibrating close to a "normal mode " frequency (about 20Hz),
 which produces this pattern of standing waves.

You may have seen similar patterns in cups of liquid when the washing machine goes on to spin cycle.

OK, May be too easy.



Radula of a snail ?

" Definition of radula:-
 The ribbon of teeth possessed by most gastropods (and most other molluscan Classes). The Muricidae have a ribbon of numerous lateral rows of teeth. Each row has a central tooth flanked on either side by a lateral tooth. Teeth may bear smaller teeth called cusps. The shape and disposition of the teeth are of taxonomic importance."

CA-CHING! (slot machine pays off) ROBERT gets the jackpot.

Congrats! (No consolation prizes will be given - sorry.)

Michael, limpets as well as slugs (BUT NOT SEA SLUGS) have readula. The radula is often mistaken for a tooth and does function as a tooth for many species. It is actually a tounge with a builtin rasp. Besides snails, both the ones found on land and those in the sea, radula are also found in limpets, abalones and snails. They are not found in sea slugs, which are (were?) Nubibrancs. (DNA is making my taxonomy obsolete.)

Pictured is one of the many varieties of a radula.

The deep sea limpet's tongue, or radula (above, left) is used to scrape algae off rocky surfaces, and it is strong enough to bore a deep-set scar into the rock to which the limpet attaches (see the superfamily, Patellacea). The recurved tooth is hardened with iron and silicon oxides at its tip, in effect a sharp rasping tool. By comparison (above, right), the feathery structure of the slit shell mollusc's radula lacks hardened teeth. It is more suited to sweeping and filtering fine organic debris from the soft sands along the bottom, where this mollusc normally lives --a   mode of living like that of the other slit shell molluscs (see, for example, the Pleurotomariidae family).

Carnivorous Radula

(https://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi38.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fe111%2Fgeezer69%2FRadula_Urosalpinx.jpg&hash=df103b3d5f245e242c995de1de42298d)

(Right) The array of horny teeth shown belong to the radula of the Oyster Drill, Urosalpinx, a member of the Murex family noted for boring drill holes into heavy shells of mussels and other molluscs. The left and right ranks of teeth are hooked, and the middle tooth shows three cusps. Like all gastropods, the radular teeth are continually renewed from top to bottom, as they are worn away. In the case of Urosalpinx,  rather than depending on silicon- or iron-hardened radular cusps, drilling is facilitated by secretions of an accessory salivary gland used to soften shell materials.

No answere yet on the gastrodod shell guess (above) about the pict. (No not your, your emminence, a "picture".)

But then, if the sheel is wrong, it could always be 1.) the space between two couch coushions.

Or, 2.) it very well could be part of a flower.

One of these should work.

It really does look like a swallow! I love swallows, we have them here by the tons. They are very cool and can get ptreyyi brave and come very close to you. Hummingbirds get used to you also and will actually come and sit right at or around your shoulders and body if you remain pretty still. I love birds!!!!.....Karen

It is a raptor or some type IF it is a bird because the eyes are faced forward. BUT I dount think it is a bird. It is a mammalian carnivore. The streamlineing and, above all, the good offices of the emporer in letting us know it was dry, suggest to me a seal. Unless of course Hadrian tried to drown his cat. [xx(]

Jim bob I think you are right, It does look so much more like a seal! I was having trouble with the bird although the only trouble was the beak, it looked like it did not have one. So I was thinking it was an optical illusion with the camera angle! A seal is much better option now that I am looking at it with your eyes. Interesting I did not see that til you said it, now I don't know why I saw anything else!

It is named after the planet Saturn, but it is actually microscopic.
Its name also includes the invention associated with Guglielmo Marconi.

Radiolarian. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the shell (skeleton) of Saturnulus planetus, a type of radiolarian protozoan. Radiolarians build these hard, mineral skeletons around themselves as they float in warm seas with other plankton. They extend their protoplasm as pseudopodia (false feet) through pores in the shell to feed on tiny organisms. The radiolarians can change their density in order to vary their depth. Large numbers of radiolarian skeletons litter the sea bed; these become fossilised to form minerals like flint. Magnification: x536 at 6x7cm size "

Romeo is in the orchard under Juliet's window

Now will he sit under a medlar tree,
And wish his mistress were that kind of fruit

The medlar, rotten with ripeness, popularly was believed to have the likeness of the female genitalia, and 'to meddle' meant to perform sexual intercourse. Mercutio happily also cites a popular name for the medlar, the open-arse, and the slang name for a French pear, the Poperingle

As for this picture, Is that a mark on top green rim, perhaps a "N", or something with a "J"? I have no clue! Maybe a honey pot Or a ceramic glass insulator, for electrical wires..HEE HEE!! I can't tell!

Well done everyone I do love it so much when you get there. Yes this is a advertising (or merchandising) match holder.  As I told Neil it’s made in England or London to be more precise. They are called James Green & Nephew. Isn’t it amusing that they used the word Nephew. I bet there was a story in that. [^]

Hi Carolyn,
We Italians use to say "Mamma mia!" -that means "My mother"- when something awful shows up or is reported to us.
Actually, in this particular case I was joking, 'cause I don't think this is an awful wild beast visiting Hadrian's neighbourhood...I would go for veggies...or other stuff.  I might be totally wrong.
By the way, how is your fish-oil-propelled kid doing?
Ciao

You probably use something like "Oh my God" in the same way.
So...is that an animal or a plant?

IKO, we use your term of Mamma Mia, the same way in my family, meaning "oh my goodness" or "for heavens sakes" or "aye yie yie" or "Lands  sakes alive"! "Oh my gawd" qualifies also, so for me, it means the same as your meaning! I got it, no mis interpretation.... YAAAAY! I did not misunderstand you this time YAAAAY! So Glad!! LOL

You know, I learned English from a book...
So I deserve more information about your persistent and ripetitive:
LOL, lol, every 5-10 words, in any size and colour available.
Does it , mean Lollypop? Left-over-light? Light-on-luxury?
Is all this lolling around a typical devastating sign of a chronic "lol syndrome"?  Is it contagious?
May be it means liver-oil-literature...and I would be deeply  concerned about it.
Any suggestion?

Hi Iko - I'm sorry, I didn't think about you not knowing about LOL.  Simply put, it is internet slang for Laugh Out Loud.  I don't know if you use google or not, but it can be a very useful tool.  Go to www.google.com and type in what you're looking for.  I use it on a daily basis.  Hope that was helpful to you.[:)]

Carolyn

p.s. - Thanks for asking about my fish-oil kid.  He's actually not taking it right now, the bottle I had was expired and the local store is out, but hopefully, he will start on it in the week or so.

Hi Karen,
If you click on 'insert image' and then go to the Google Image you selected and displayed alone on the screen...you should copy the http address (by the right key of the mouse) and then 'paste' it in between [image]here![image].  Copying images in other ways does not allow you to 'paste' later.  There are probably zillions of other different ways I do not know.
Enjoy

To post pictures like images from your PC you should follow Neilep's instructions in the 3rd topic of General Science.  It is a bit tricky, but not exactly impossible!
Have fun!

They only were popularised in the 1990's, and were often a differentiator for upmarket units ( though they moved into mainstream very fast) that were actually made in Europe. B&O have had them since the 1980's AFAIK, and there are even pins in the connector that were used by the Beolink system for data transfer. In a unit made for the US market the connector probably was omitted, though you probably did have a place on the board for ther socket, and a blanking panel on the back that covered the hole. If you look on the back of most non HD flat panels, and on all recent CRT units the socket will be there. Allows better quality video and audio interconnects, at least as good as the PAL system allows. You will find it on all european digital satellite units, even if most of the time they are not used.

I think Geezer was closer with his second guess than the watermelon holder.  But, he still needs to set down and think about it a bit more.

As a hint.

These tools have separate tasks...  but you might use the first tool in conjunction with this second tool (which also has nothing to do with watermelons or kettles).

Well, the second thing is a watermelon plane, so I have to conclude the initial object is a thingy for detecting highspots on your watermelon so you can plane them flat. It would probably work on wood too.

In the Geezeresque style, your hints are above.  Read my comments carefully.

In case you missed it...  Geezer???

The third tool hanging on the wall is a 2 man bucksaw.  Before the chainsaw, they would have been used for cutting down trees, cutting up logs, firewood, and etc.  They are still used in wildernesses where motorized engines are prohibited.

The first tool is called a spider, and is used to check the set of the tooth as is shown in this Government Document (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/fspubs/02232324/)

(https://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fhwa.dot.gov%2Fenvironment%2Ffspubs%2F02232324%2Ffig2.jpg&hash=053d8d6a3925d6cea0d8bfaf430fb655)

Every 5th (double) tooth on the saws above is called a raker tooth.  They remain flat (no set).

The second tool is used to measure the depth of these raker teeth.

I believe this is a double-bit axe.
It is used to Perform the same function as single-bit axe, only difference is it has two cutting edges one on each end of the head so that the lumbermen or person using the axe can rotate it in their hand and use both edges.. I believe the marks are the falling count.. how many trees its cut down.. but thats just kinda what I remember as a kid hearing. It was a long time ago so I can't be sure that my memory is correct.LOL

   The Double-bit axes have straight handles that are symmetrical with the double-edge head.
 I know one type or pattern head is called a western and then I think we used to have one that was refereed to as a reversible head. There are likely more but those are the types I have seen around here.
We are in the land of lumberjacks and most of them use the double bit axe wen downing  trees and working with the logs.. ect

I've sharpened axes...  but never retempered them.

Single blade axes suffer from being used as sledges and wedges, but that isn't an issue with double-bitted axes. 

I doubt that anybody has whacked into railroad irons or something enough times to warrant multiple major rebuilds of the axe head without also breaking the handle.

Old steel would blunt quickly after much use - my uncle used to get his chisels redone (he was a cabinet maker since before wwii - now sadly gone).  He claimed that over time the whacking used to make all the steel the same all over - the body of the chisel would go brittle from being soft and flexible and the tip would become soft from being hard and brittle.  whether this was an old wives tale I do not know

Never heard that one before. I think it's a bit suspect, but maybe he was right. If he was in the habit of using a grinding wheel to sharpen them, the heat produced could affect the hardness, but it's more usual to sharpen them on a stone by hand.

Wot we need is a meta-lurgy-cal person to 'splain this to us.

I don't think axe heads are hardened that much. Last time I sharpened my hand axe, I seem to remember I used a file, then a stone to put the final edge on it.

Ok,

I think we got sidetracked a bit.  So much for woodsy stuff.

Anyway, the axe in the photo above is a feller's (or faller's) axe.  The flat edge on the bottom is supposed to make the axe into a T-Square that can be used to determine the direction a tree will fall.  What if the axe handle is warped as above?

http://www.fs.fed.us/t-d/pubs/htmlpubs/htm99232823/page04.htm
(https://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fs.fed.us%2Ft-d%2Fpubs%2Fhtmlpubs%2Fhtm99232823%2Fimages%2Ffig085.jpg&hash=ccf1630ad39cb26868120752630431d4)

As far as the notches.  I thought I was told that it was providing a guide for the crosscut saw while cutting down the trees, but the best I can tell, it has to do with underbucking with a buck saw.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underbucking
(https://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fen%2Fthumb%2F5%2F50%2FUnderbuckingPATC.jpg%2F800px-UnderbuckingPATC.jpg&hash=e5a41a7fdd15c91c90b8f19dfcf3441b)

Although the Wikipedia article does suggest using a single-bit axe, presumably so you won't fall into the axe head.

As mentioned, it will give a crude count of the number of underbucks that have been done.

Geezer suggested a burnt effect, but it would be friction burning.

Good question.  And, it does appear to be graphite, or a high carbon compound.  And it did chip when I dropped it.  The screw appears to be a copper alloy (copper, brass, or bronze), and does not come out the other end.

I note that both graphite and brass are used as electrical conductors, but I don't know hat this object is for. Could it be the carbon rod from a leclanche cell?

As far as the pulley, it is light (which is good), but as mentioned, it chipped easily when dropped, and the screw doesn't seem strong enough to take much abuse.  So, I'm doubtful.

I haven't tried scraping  it, but if it is carbon, it would likely crumble more than a whetstone.  It also has a gear tooth like shape that would be inconvenient for sharpening many items.

Geezer?  Your thoughts?

The battery post is down my line of reasoning, The carbon part reminds me of the carbon rod that one finds in the middle of typical alkaline batteries, just much bigger.

The screw reminds me of the screw-on top on many 6V lantern batteries.

Unfortunately I haven't taken apart many larger alkaline batteries.  At about 6" long, it would be tall for a lantern battery, and everything I see indicate that at least the modern 6V batteries are made of multiple independent smaller cells wired together.

I was thinking it might be a brush for a large dynamo or motor. The fluted section is likely to prevent rotation, which is required with a brush.

Interesting idea.  The end is flat and not worn concave.  However, it doesn't mean it isn't new.  The profile, however, is round (with flutes).  Most brushes I've seen are square or rectangular because they are designed to match the shape of the commutator.

The piece was found in the mountains near a long abandoned remote homestead which is also in a mining region.

The voltage put out by a galvanic cell depends on the chemical reaction that takes place when electricity is generated. The maximum possible for any practical system is around 2.5 volt, and most of the practical cells produce about 1.5 volt. (Lead-Acid as in a car battery is 2.0 volt). So any 6 volt battery must consist of 3 or 4 cells wired in series.

But we are here looking at a rather old artifact, so 6 volt is probably rather irrelevant. I think that Bored Chemist's suggestion

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leclanch%C3%A9_cell
is the least problematic of the various suggestions so far put forward.

The fluted profile is consistent with trying to maximise the surface area of an electrode, while maintaining the mechanical integrity of a rather fragile material.

Give the location, and the rather wimpy connection, I think that's a good assumption.

Clifford, can you measure its resistance?

Awww heck,
I just use my meter as a go/no-go gauge. 

Anyway, the resistance in the wires of the meter seems to be about 0.3 ohms.
The resistance from end to end on the "handle" seems to be about 0.8 ohms, or a difference of about 0.5 ohms.

I may have to do some polishing as I seem to get some very high resistance across the screw.

Isn't there a lttle thingy you can adjust to zero the reading? Either that, or you are needing to change the battery before it leaks and ruins your meter [:D]

If it's about 0.5 Ω, it does sound a bit high for a motor brush, so that would suggest it's the carbon  electrode for a primary cell as BC and the dangly sword guy suggest.

It's a high tech refrigerant condenser. It could also be an evaporator. Some sort of fluid flows through an orifice, and a sudden drop in pressure by an expansion chamber, Blah, blah, refrigeration simple, to cool, or warm, some thing that generates heat.

Perhaps I'm off my rocker with my interpretation...  let's see what the group thinks.

RD had found a similar candle holder...

Boy it is quiet here.

Maybe I should have posted it under "Geek Speek" (hint) as they certainly would have had some good interpretations there.

Perhaps this was not quite what it seemed. Not a celebration of the turn of the millennium, but a doomsday prediction that we would all be using candles after the millennium bug put an end to life as we know knew it.

Or there again, maybe it was a very early attempt at making a torch (flashlight) with a rating of 2000 candle power.

Very close, there was such a prediction...  that many people took far too seriously.

Ok, not much in the comments about the Candle.

In the late 90's, people became aware of a potential issue with dates, in that if the year was written with two digits (99), then the new year (00) would have a couple of issues.

00 < 99, rather than being larger than the previous year.
If one simply incremented the value for the year, 99+1 = 100, which could cause a number of unexpected errors when one is expecting a 2 digit date.
Dates might be calculated by concatenating the strings 19+the 2 digit year, so the new year might read 1900, or 19100.

This became known as the Millennium Bug. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2000_problem)

Anyway, so there was a huge effort to clean up the code....  so that programs would work properly on the new year.  Many companies such as Microsoft released special Y2K patches.

Nonetheless, there were many people who were convinced that there would be a critical failure, such as a loss of major public utilities such as electricity.  Oregon Health Sciences University rented a huge semi-truck generator and wired it into their electrical system as a precaution. 

Of course, there were a number of other people who weren't convinced that power would be lost, but perhaps at most, utilities would have to do an extra run of their billing.

Of course, on January 1, 2000, there was not a single power outage anywhere in the world, but at least a few dates were written incorrectly.

So, it is my interpretation that the candle holder not only celebrates the new millennium, but also celebrates the millennium bug, and preparing for the predicted mass power failures.

Yeah I was watching the magnificent moonrise out of my window last night and the Earth's moon looked many times the size of Mars.

Our moon, of course, is larger than Pluto.
It is nearly the size of Mercury.

And, if Syhprum had moved to Jupiter or Saturn, then perhaps he is thinking that both Jupiter and Saturn's largest moons are larger than Mercury, and approaching the size of Mars.

Ok...

Here is something entirely different...
I have a guess on what it is...  we'll see if my guess is the same as what others come up with.

I'll answer any questions that you come up with (that I can answer).

Finally I've found another!  I've been trying to figure out what I found for months- and here you have something quite similar- Mine is 25mm diameter, 140 mm length, no flutes, copper nail sticking out one end.  I also found mine in the wild- specifically in the Angeles Forest just outside Los Angeles, miles from a paved road, just off a fire road and near an old abandoned civil defense platform.  My first guess was that it was an arc light electrode, but it wasn't tapered on the end as you'd expect it to be.  I think research also showed it wasn't the right size.  I'd love to know if you've found anything more out about it Clifford.

2.0 volts is too low for a lead acid battery they work best if they are charged from a constant voltage 2.35v source (current limitation if they are well run down)
