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.

Cute! Gets you the right (ouch!) to come up with the next one... gnagna.

It's hail, Simeonie. Once was in one of them myself, we were very lucky to be able to shelter the car in time, others weren't and quite a few looked like this...just imagine the noise...

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.

Hmmm..it's possible this may be too hard !

You can buy them in packs of 8 or 6...
