Here is the quiz:

Gizmo quiz [146.82.73.177]

It isn't a gadget, but I think it will make a good quiz anyway. Give me the name of this stuff.

It looks like a hi-tech gas burner.

Is there flame or heat involved?

No flame or heat involved.

The liquid looks like oil.

Those look like threads around the outer edge. Does something cover this up when its in use?

Oil is usually a component of it, they aren't threads, just part of a container. In most applications it would be contained.

Some sort of nano-polymer type things?

I don't believe it would fall under being a nano-polymer.

Nano-anything?

There is a small component, but I don't think it is small as nano.

waynet




msg:304256
 11:35 pm on May 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

Actually I looked it up, the component is in the nano size.

After a good few vodkas, a damn fine curry and a couple of glasses of wine (hic - it's half past midnight here in London town ;-))

Does it relate to cookery?

Is it a mould (USA = mold?) of some description?

I wouldn't characterize it as a mold.

No, the web page is in Japanese!

Well done, iamlost. Well done indeed.

My thanks to Syzygy:

See you all next week ...
