... they had one of those in my highschool physics classroom. I wanted SO BAD to know what it was. Because it was out of place, up on a shelf all alone. It looked weird, it was intriguing. But our teacher didn't know, he was just a student teacher doing the last unassisted portion of his student teaching.
I got a parma ham recipie that chefs dont publicize because it makes them look so good if you are interested, but only if you say you are interested, I mean I will PM you it it can't just float around on the net
Why do I feel like I know this is used for measuring something on spheres? Does the part that is attached to the middle rotate? The rod\spike on the fixed piece moves in and out right? I want to say it's kind of like a caliper but I honestly don't know where I would know that from.
It was found in one of the cabinets at the school. None of the staff can figure out what it is. We all figured it was probably some form of measuring device, but beyond now having a name (a goniometer), we still know nothing more about it.
There are a lot of companies that produce teaching supplies that change from year to year. I suspect it is some old thing from ten or more years ago that doesn't exist anymore.
I only hoped that it was more common than not and that someone could tell me exactly what function it had in high school science pedagogy.
The parma ham looks interesting. I'll have to get me one of them.
@duoas, parma ham is great, you can get into it like you do good wine but its easier to spot a great one from a good one, buy the kind of parma ham you want in small portions before you buy a whole one and dont just eat it in samiches, that would be a waste, you can do loads with it if you like european cooking,
anyone want to impress girlfriends with cooking PM me, i know dishes that can get you laid
