Since my funny answers are being ignored (where's Macguru when you need him), I'll ask a serious question, to wit: Does it have anything to do with volcanos?

Lawman, I love the funny answers...keep them coming!

I'm working on one of my own involving smurfs and railroad crossings and hair gel.

Hi lawman, can't type very well when I'm laughing, and it doesn't have anything to do with volcanos.

Seriously, Scotty used a similar device to reverse some type of polarity, but I can't remember what it was called. I do remember that it had to be inserted precisely. Feel free to jump in Oilman, Mivox, or Macguru.

Actually, coconutz is cheating. "Immersed" is only a good synonym for one of the two versions...

Now I'm really serious. Does it have anything to do with multi-phase graviton polarity flux?

Snowgeese use this device to warn of impending tornados and beer cans. An optional attachment, noted for it's vocabulary and great taste in music, is a child-proof, tamper-resistant stapler.

7 out of 4 snow geese recommend this device to neighboring ducks. Although not normally displayed as a primary indicator, it is known for it's impact in local radar systems and diaper sales.

Sometimes mis-identified as a cow.

On topic:

Is this device a transmitter or receiver?

Good synonym for both versions....

[edit]my apologies bird, it was my understanding that both variations could be embedded.[/edit]

You guys got the function, but the original question was

"What is it?"
