Any idea what this is? [Nov. 6th, 2007|11:55 pm]

The police want to know... Looks like lab equipment of some sort to me.

Oh and if you're missing some under suspicious circumstances there's good news.

That’s an acrylic thingymajig, if ever I saw one.
It ‘interestingly’ has a knurled circumference, indicating provision for some kind of belt drive?

Apparently they are glass. I couldn't tell if that knurling was on the inside or out... But yes it looks like it could be for a drive belt.

They are in individual flight cases and the police have lots of them.

Looks like something pinched from Area 51 to me. I hope they've checked them out with a giger counter... Wouldn't be the first time some fools pinched something with radioactive contamination. Hot in more ways than one... and not much fun for the poor souls who find it. I remember a story about radioactive iodine and some twit who took a fancy to the storage flasks.

Umm, individual flight cases, made of glass, talk of radiation!. These are murky waters Watson. It calls for mulling over of the evidence *Gets down violin, lights up the calabash*
