I'm not sure "belong" is the right word, but I'll say "yes" it's most likely found in the kitchen.

I don't fish, and neither does anyone my family, but my mom used to. Is it a bobbing thingie?

Chet
24th of December 2009 (Thu), 21:15
Nope. Fish is correct, but nothing to do with fishing, bait or tackle. Throw the whole fishing thing out the window.

drop on a disc?



I figured it wouldn't take long. Anybody that shoots macro, it's kind of a requirement to do the "water drop on CD" shots. Obviously I didn't take the time to do it properly. Plenty of dirt and lint and such...


http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a399/katodog/IMG_0026c.jpg



You're up Lava.

US viewers may not be familiar with seals like this on account of their being contraband since about 1963.
