Hooray! It's time for our weekly What Is It? Game! Can you guess what this strange swirly object above is?
Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please - though you can enter as many as you'd like. Please post no URLs or web links - doing so will invalidate your entry. You have until the answer is revealed tomorrow at the What Is It? Blog.
Two winners as usual. The first correct guess and the funniest but ultimately wrong guess will win T-shirts from the NeatoShop. Please write your selection of T-Shirt alongside your guess, otherwise you forfeit the prize. (May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt, and Artist-Designed T-Shirt categories?)
For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!Update 8/13/10 - the answer is: A Helter Skelter Drink Cooler with an internal ice block, once the the chiller is frozen it is placed at the edge of a table, a drink is poured onto the top and by the time it reaches the glass at the bottom of the ramp the liquid will be cooled.
Mike Fuellbrandt got it right first, but didn't choose a T-shirt. Congratulations to Augie who guessed "Tiny Hadron Collider" ;)
