This is a submission for a new thread called Guess what this is. A picture is posted and whoever correctly guesses what it is posts the next pic. 24 hours with no correct guess and the thread is open to any new post.

For example this pic..

8828

is the German built Bagger 288, the world's largest machine. It's a bucket wheel excavator used in open pit mining and moves on its own from mine to mine using 16 house-sized treads.

Edit: Well this thread is over 1 year old and still going. Thank you all for participating. I found something funny on the web today when I went back to check on the Bagger 288 hoping a new model might be out. Somebody got the idea to turn it into a Transformer and I love the way it turned out so I will share it here. For a second I thought the machine actually folded up this way...LOL. When I saw the cars in the same positions I knew better.

No, it's not that. In this picture the item has been taken apart but those two pieces make ONE item :) Hint: mend things :D

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:14:53
Taken apart? :o
A tape dispenser :?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 01:21:36
YAY! Well done dear da alien!! Here is what it looks like when in one piece

Crimsonthread
03-16-2008, 01:41:27
A massager?

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:42:56
No, it's not a pancake flipper.

Well... ummm... no, it's not really a massager, ROFL :haha:
Sorry, I had to lol ;)

gh1
03-16-2008, 01:45:06
it's some sort of utensil as it has a hole in it, unless it's a spaceship that Mistery uses to hang-up when she's done.

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:46:23
Yes, it's a kitchen tool :)

gh1
03-16-2008, 01:47:30
is it an icecube tray

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:47:47
No.

gh1
03-16-2008, 01:49:10
a frying pan

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 01:50:34
Perhaps one of those gadgets for pressing garlic in? :?

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:50:49
@gh1 and Lilli
No, it isn't.

Another hint: you prepare a certain "ingredient" with it.
Well, the massager from Crimson was already not bad, but ... :rofl-smilie:

gh1
03-16-2008, 01:52:07
:D is it a secret ingredient:? *raises eyebrow*

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:52:36
:D is it a secret ingredient:? *raises eyebrow*

No, not a secret ingredient, lol.

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 01:55:22
You prepare... the NUT yes :D

Mistery
03-16-2008, 01:55:55
No.

It is used to prepare non-vegetarian food.

gh1
03-16-2008, 01:57:26
non-vegeterian food.!??!?!

is it used to prepare chicken?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 01:57:46
:o... Oh Crimson is so out of here :S
It is a meat beater/hammer? :?

gh1
03-16-2008, 01:59:03
it's a kitchen utensil "tool" to prepare a chicken for meat beating. yes..

hm something about fish?

Mistery
03-16-2008, 02:00:47
It's not to prepare chicken, nor is it a meat hammer.
It's sort of a "massager" :haha: :P
But what do you do with it exaclty?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 02:02:28
*Is at loss for words* Ahem... fluff the cat fur before coffee? :P :P :P

Mistery
03-16-2008, 02:03:45
Hmmm, you come nearer - but it's not used on cats :haha:

What is there aside from chicken and pork and mutton?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 02:05:43
Pleeeeeaaaaase tell me you don't mean fish :S

Mistery
03-16-2008, 02:06:24

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 02:07:12
Fish Bone Tweezers? :?

Mistery
03-16-2008, 02:07:51

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 02:10:23
Some sort of fisch scale utensil to remove the scales?

Edit: It's the Magic Fish Scaler :)

Mistery
03-16-2008, 02:11:05
Yeeeeeeeeeees!!!! :appl:

It's a fish scaler :)

(I had to laugh about massager, because it's sort of a dead fish massager :P)

gh1
03-16-2008, 02:13:18
it's a kitchen utensil "tool" to prepare a chicken for meat beating. yes..

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 03:22:36

ShiningStar
03-16-2008, 03:23:34
haha! yeah must be :P

Mistery
03-16-2008, 03:23:43

No, no juicer.

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 03:26:58

gh1
03-16-2008, 03:27:08
is it a computer device?

Mistery
03-16-2008, 03:27:50
No web cam.

Not really a computer device, but might be used as such - maybe.

gh1
03-16-2008, 03:29:14
does it record data such as audio?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 03:29:32
O’hEocha Audiophile’s Speakers :)

Mistery
03-16-2008, 03:29:47
No, it doesn't record sound or other data.

EDIT
Correct Lilli, speakers :appl:

But it could also be a lamp maybe... :?

ShiningStar
03-16-2008, 04:00:13

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 04:14:08

Mistery
03-16-2008, 04:17:15

Or do we have to guess more... it could be a hair dryer.

Jones
03-16-2008, 04:17:59

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 04:21:13
@Jack
Uhm... I would not call it that no.

@GH1

@Mistery

Jones
03-16-2008, 04:23:10
Dust buster/vacuum cleaner?

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 15:22:27
a heating thingy for bad backs?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 15:24:06
No... not that either. Methinks this is more of a kitchen item, really :)

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 15:25:41

Mistery
03-16-2008, 15:26:30

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 15:33:03
expresso machine?

Lilliputt
03-16-2008, 15:42:26
Close enough, I think. It is a coffee maker, da Sumitra. Don't ask me how it works. It is still an enigma :haha:

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 15:43:54
what the heck hahahahah it looks more like a shower head to me :P, ok let me go look for an equally mad creation :P

Not quite, its more towards insect use D

Jones
03-16-2008, 16:03:10

1.it depends very much on the sun
2.a play's venue

=........

RBS
03-16-2008, 16:26:35
stage?

Cant get the first part.

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 16:29:59
riddle part 1:

whats the word used when somethin runs on the power of the sun?

part 2:

no stage as such, but more the whole arena of where the play is performed, sometimes confused with a cinema.

Jones
03-16-2008, 16:33:52
Aha! It's a solar insect theater! Right?

RBS
03-16-2008, 16:34:34
maybe solar + odium = solarium. Getting warmer I hope?

LOL, jones. Now playing...ANTZ!

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 16:34:42
yes!!! well done Jones....to be more exact its a solar powered insect theatre but good answer! bravo :appl:

very well thought of RBS but Jones got the answer :)

Jones
03-16-2008, 16:35:38
Okay, I'll find something now...

Brimful-Asha
03-16-2008, 16:36:34
Well done Jones ;)

Whoa, Jack! You are very smart. That's right! :D

It was basically the first laptop released on the public, I'm pretty sure.

Crimsonthread
03-16-2008, 17:34:00
Jack already got it. :haha: I'd entered every adjective I could think of, but not "portable."

Crimsonthread
03-16-2008, 17:44:28
Um.... this is way too obvious, so I know I'm missing something, but an octopus toy? :?

EDIT: Is it one of those sticky toys, the ones you can throw against the wall and they'll stick?

jack
03-16-2008, 17:45:59
Yes. It had a specific name though. They were very popular in the 80s.

Jones
03-16-2008, 17:47:59
I know what it does; you throw it at a wall or someting and it sticks, then it starts to "walk" down as the tentacles lose their grip.

Tarheelz
03-16-2008, 17:50:57
a suctopus? lol

Jones
03-16-2008, 17:51:55
The name was Wacky Wallwalker!

Crimsonthread
03-16-2008, 17:54:01
Wacky Wallwalker! Somehow, although I'm an 80s child, I missed out on that fad. Now I want one. :)

EDIT: Darn! I was late!

Would help if we could tell the size. From the shape and the large opening at the bottom I will get a pizza machine/cooker of some kind.

Googling all kind of keywords with pizza but nothing so probably not right.

jack
03-16-2008, 20:27:37
Is it a coffee grinder?

Crimsonthread
03-16-2008, 20:40:59
No, Jack, and nowhere close, RBS.

Size--It would fit in the palm of your hand. :)

jack
03-16-2008, 20:59:11
Is it some sort of container?

It's the Parc Olympique, and is used as a stadium for sports? (i.e. soccer, baseball, football)

@Wirodeu--It's not the biodome. :)... Erm, well, now that I research more, the biodome is part of Parc Olympique... but... I'm confused now. :?

OK, I'll hand this one to Crimsonthread, but the story behind this was that after the olympics, they converted it into a Biodome, and it has been one ever since (I'm pretty sure).

(you're both right in my technical mind, though);)

Nope, it's not something of an old game like kirby's adventure for NES (I take it that you refer to that game? :P).

It's something for a newer game platform, and I believe somewhere from 2004-2005 ;)

24 oz. chocolate chips
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)
* Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder.
* Cream the butter and both sugars.
* Add eggs and vanilla, mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda.
* Add chocolate chips, Hershey Bar and nuts.
* Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.
*Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.
