Ding, dong -- we have a winner for the kookiest answer!

Chet
27th of April 2010 (Tue), 13:44
So we have to guess what kinda gyro it is? It's not a Piezo electric gyros so it's some sort of mechanical gyro.

katodog
27th of April 2010 (Tue), 13:51
Okay, I leave for a few hours and all hell breaks loose. Maybe you guys should go back a few pages and look at the posts. I posted the crop, two posts later it was guessed, I posted the original and said who had guessed it. I didn't give it to hqqns because it's not technically a toy. It is but it isn't, and even so, he would have had to guess what kind of toy anyway.

It is a Gyroscope, the kind you play with and do balance tricks and such with.


Again, for the record...Jr#8 is up

Chet

to recap the last couple pages -the last actual posted macro was indeed a gyro - we're all waiting for JR#8 to post something.. but I think the time has passed.

Mike said he was posting something but it appears no one can see the image.

the rest is just us being crazy :-)

You guessed a toy, which technically it is. But, I would have made you be more specific, and JR#8 guessed it on the head, so he won. To be honest, I could give two craps who posts, just as long as somebody posts and we can continue.

Chet
27th of April 2010 (Tue), 16:50
