What is this thing?
    #977923 - 10/20/02 08:01 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

The other day I was cleaning up and found this little thing on the ground. I know I've seen something like it before, but, damnit, I can't figure out what it is. It was found under a computer chair... looks like its a little rusted and made out of metal.
I have to figure out what this damn thing is because it's driving me crazy  :mad:

I took some pics of the thing: 





... So what the hell is it?

it looks like the screw that is used in glasses. Maybe it is some sort of mind control device.

Maybe it's the fossilized remains of a wooden nail from 10,000 BC?

Or perhaps even some sort of late-neolithic stone nail? :grin:

I think we, at least, need to run it through a gas-spectrometer? :wink:

Great idea!  :smile:

What about carbon-14 dating? Think we should go so far?

:frown: But stone doesnt rust. I think it might have come from 1 of 3 things.

1. Computer/Desk chair(has penumatic lift thing)
2. Pelet gun
3. Lighter

It looks like some kind of piston or valve or something like that... but I really just don't know.

How about not hi-jacking the thread with useless crap? That would be a nice change.

I'd like to see if we could replicate it -- sort of clone it -- for further testing... :laugh:

It kind of does look like an upholstery nail.

My first thought was the spark-gap from the starter for a gas bar-b-q.

That is very strange indeed.
The fact that the second one has a coin attached to it, makes one wonder.
