He said made of glass and water!

Doesn't look like a thermometer to me, more like some lava lamp  Smile

Is that a Van Der Graaf generator in the background? They can be good fun if you can find an unsuspecting victim!

The bubble thingies rise with the temperature. Note the absence of a power cord which is a requisite with any type of lava lamp (battery-operated lava l;amp? hmmm.)

Here it can be bought at every major photographer's "etc" store... one of those stores carrying GPS units, night visors, weather stations, telescopes, and yes, thermometers. I never understood what this equipment's got to do with photography, but hey, they sell it.

The glass shapes are all slightly different weights and their buoyancy means that they rise or sink depending on the density of the water that decreases as the temperature rises. Each one usually has a metal plate attached to the base with a number showing its temperature. My parents have got one.

Ok, Ok.

So that one was too simple. It is indeed a Thermometer. It was purchased at a retail store called The Museum Company.

I'll have to step it up a notch or two for Parts 3 and beyond.
