Is it part of a stand that keeps paper upright for viewing?

Not a primary consideration, but it could be of some use for that.

It isnt just a super exotic paper clip is it ?... sorry for the down-time, 10 hour flight

And an added question .. is it spring-loaded?

Mostly endemic, I'd have thought. Springy, yes

Well then, I might as well get involved.

Well done sir, you have the (dubious?) honour of winning:-D
Welcome to the game.

The part in the picture is where the arm goes into the main triangular part so it can flip and lie flat.

Your task is to decide whether to run away quickly, or venture into the game which is surely so simple, based loosely on "20 questions" . What could be difficult ;-)a;-)a :rolleyes:

I hope you choose the latter :)
and post an image!

There aren't many rules - they evolved. Questions should broady be answerable by degrees of yes/no. Answers can yes or no, or more loquacious and revealing, depending how quickly you want to get the darned thing finished!

It can't be one of those. See the question below that was answered "No."
Those binder clips were used in almost every darkroom at one time or another. They were used to hold up film (and prints by some users) in the darkroom so they could dry.

I worked on and off in a darkroom for a rather long time and would have slung this sort of rust-stain-prone rubbish right out. We only used lead weighted stainless steel clips. I still have some.
I know some people used wooden clothes pegs, but they weren't designed for the purpose, either.

I was helping a bit, but mostly getting my own work done free - and learning a lot.

I went back and read all the questions and answers very carefully a second time. Your response to a bulldog clip didn't declare that the photograph did not depict what people commonly (and it seems incorrectly) refer to as a Bulldog Clip ... namely a Binder Clip ... the response merely declared the picture not to show a de facto Bulldog Clip. The Wikipedia article then helpfully linked me to Binder Clips - which is what I, and I think several others, had suspected it to be all along.

The darkroom question I had decided to disregard as I had started to try and think not in the use given to the item but in its intended use, which was not as part of the photographic process.

Chris, since I feel you were a worthy adversary, I shall accept your invitation into this noble (albeit frivolous) game. Et voila! Let the games begin ...

Does this item use electricity?

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

In the Uk the Bulldog clip was the only one you'd get, when I was young. The much better foldflat type is relatively recent, so we use the more accurate names.

Your thing - does it contain liquid?

I'm not sure what bearing that has on anything. (Nope, not a bearing in the photograph and the item does not contain any.)

I remember using proper Bulldog clips at my Nan's house.

It does not contain liquid. Nor is that its intended or general function.

Is the black curved part something like a rubber seal?
