This week's collaboration with What is it? Blog brings us this strange contraption: can you guess what it is? (No, it's not a tweezer for an extra large nose).
Place your guess in the comment section - no prize this week, so you're playing for fun and bragging rights. Please post no URL (let others play). For more clues, check out What is It? Blog.
Have fun!Update 12/13/07 - the answer is:
all's Mineral Rod, supposedly used as a dowsing rod for finding ore, the type that you're looking for is placed in the container. Unfortunately it doesn't work for everyone, "owing to lack of magnetism in the operator"
Nbob #1 got the divining rod part right, but technically, it wasn't for water.
