      Help Identify These Mysterious Scientific Objects

      Thought this was pretty interesting. I have no idea what these things (accept for maybe the wooden heads), but maybe they will strike a chord with some of you.

      That was very interesting.

      "It's not normal to label and categorize and index the things we have and use," she said. "It's not in the habit of people who use tools every day to do that. Obsolescence and technological change happens much sooner than you think."
      That quote really struck me, because they is so much truth to it...and I'm realizing that the very tools that I am and will be working with through grad school and longer will soon be obsolete. As will I. It just...puts things into perspective...

      Oh and I loved the Ozymandias quote too haha.

      The Square Wood-Framed Instrument With Two Dials was possibly used as a Manganin resistor which served as the legal standard for "ohm" in the U.S from 1901 to 1990. Either that or to measure high pressure shockwaves.
