I really shouldn't have won the last round, but I don't know whom to bribe to get the results changed.

Thanks for waiting.

Depends what the bribe is.

I want to join the game again - feel like I'm totally ready :P

Is the round thing attached to something, and does it turn? :)

Now now... That's no way to start a new The super macro guessing game thread... You deserved the win. :)

Outter edge of a speaker cone?

It's attached to something. It can be turned; it doesn't turn spontaneously.

Not a speaker cone.

I thought earlier answers had excluded a drain auger. The object was "sort of" related to juice (reality: not at all related) and "sort of" related to pipes and drains (reality: it couldn't be more closely related). I didn't know that augers have a narrow part that looks like a spring.

See, I didn't want to win at that time. I'm preparing for a trip. This includes pushing back my rising time this week so I can get up at 5 on Sunday to catch a train without feeling too sick all day. Night person, not cool with early hours. So my evenings are truncated.

Sort of relating to juice meaning it's used where liquids are located. There has been juice in my sink when I've had to snake the sink drain. I was also using juice as a more... pleasing way to say urine and other fluids deposited into toilets. Maybe that hint was a little far fetched. I was going to try and bring that clue to a better clue but I didn't want to give it away. I actually thought Chet would get that...

As far as the sort of being related to pipes and drains, I may have seen something else. I might have thought the guess was a pipe. I'll have to go back and look at all of my answers.

As far as my next guess for your picture here... Is it a dial on an appliance like a washer or dryer?

A lock?


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

I was really stuck on it being a coil from an old toaster or one of those dangerous wall paper stripping instruments of death. Sure I had it figured out in the end, but that's after the final clues had been turned in.

I did kill a big black fury spider in the basement last evening with a hammer. After I had nicked it I realized I should had used something with a larger surface area. Alas I was in bear feet and would had screamed like a little girl if it would had lunged at me. It was probably macro worth before it's demise.

That's a pretty large radius on that object, probably in the range of a tin cup.

A picture of a dead spider would have been an example of a perfect Chet macro.

It's still embedded into the basement floor, I could capture it for a future project this time void of candy.

I don't go beyond a PG-13 rating here.

Poor thing. It was probably harmless. Please see "Relocating The Spider" on this page (external link).

That's a pretty large radius on that object, probably in the range of a tin cup.

The whole object is 1.25" (3.25 cm) across, and the photo shows a small bit of it. The yellowish and whitish areas, the ones obviously not metal, are parts of the same surface, just lit differently. This surface is part of the object.
