A 45 RPM record adapter.
What it’s this thing in my friends mouth? It’s a hard mass, and when he rubs it, it turns white for a second, then fades back into the gum colour. by [deleted] in whatisthisthing

Found it in our boat. Probably came with something, but can’t remember what.. About 5mm thick and plastic. by kauder in whatisthisthing
[–]brock_lee 0 points1 point2 points 21 hours ago* (0 children)
Hmm, something just like this was posted the other day. It had two protrusions, one on each side, and metal in it. Don't think it was solved for sure.
Not sure if its meant for the same thing.
Oh, I guess not.
1/4" TS jack to needle? Vibration Sensor? by supaju1 in whatisthisthing

Funny thing is, microwaves really suck at roasting meats. Plus, with the advent of the turntables, the probes don't work well since they'd get all twisted.

Well, she does kinda look like her.
TIL that since statehood, Alaska, Hawaii, and Michigan have never executed a prisoner. Meanwhile, Texas has executed 553 people since 1976. by CipherInTheKnow in todayilearned

They didn't call GW Bush "the Texecutioner" for nothing.

Temperature probe for a microwave. Probably an older one.
TIL used cars in America are so much more expensive than other countries, because once reliable companies, like Kelly Blue Book, were bought out by companies that sold used cars and they inflated the prices by [deleted] in todayilearned
[–]brock_lee 3 points4 points5 points 1 day ago (0 children)
I buy all my cars used and I usually get great deals. In fact, in adjusted dollars, used cars seem much cheaper than they were 30 years ago. Plus you get more.

Progammable Water Flow Device by dmiller224 in DIY
[–]brock_lee 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (0 children)
How accurate does it need to be? They sell lots of timers at home depot. If you measure your flow rate, you can specify the time to run so you get 20 gallons (more or less).
Found on the floor of an old Shoney's restaurant. About one foot long. What is this thing? by MarcMaronsCat in whatisthisthing
[–]brock_lee 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children)
The holes are so you can see if it's got something in it.
But why? by mediummorty in WTF
It's a control thing, I think. Apparently, they are quite common, although I've been working 30 years and generally refuse drug tests as a condition of employment. I only took one, because my 4-year job had a new owner who demanded it, and I wasn't going to lose a great gig.
Fetish morning pee.
[–]brock_lee 29 points30 points31 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Because selling fake urine for passing drug tests can be illegal, so it's sold as a "fetish item."
Found in friend’s kitchen, what is it? by PozPozPozPozPoz in whatisthisthing
Part of a milk frother for coffee.
Something similar in the center of what he's holding.

This thing holds my dryer door shut, but it's supposed to have 2 and one is missing. What's it called so I can replace the missing one? (More info and album including the "male" part in comments) by mghoffmann in whatisthisthing
Dryer door catch. I've replaced them. Can be found at RepairClinic.com (not plugging them specifically, but they have everything). I've replaced this very thing on my Kenmore.
This is Kenmore, but just search for your model

TIL the Trash is called the Recycle Bin in Windows because on older computers once a file was deleted, that space could not be reused even though the file was gone. It's also why people had so many floppy disks in the earlier days of computing. by LiberalJewMan in todayilearned
[–]brock_lee -1 points0 points1 point 1 day ago (0 children)
We need to be sure we're talking about the same thing.
When you deleted a file, even in the earliest DOS, the space occupied by that file was now marked as free for use for any new files. The disk would not fill up with deleted files, contrary to what the headline states.
When you deleted a file, the file was technically still there and still mapped in the File Access Table, until all or part of the space was overwritten. Norton Utilities, among others, allowed you to often undelete a file, since the file data was still there. DOS only indicated the file was deleted by replacing the first character in the name with a "?", but it was programmed not to show those files since they were "deleted". When you undeleted using a utility, it would ask what the first character should be, because it didn't know.
What camera is this? by jewbo23 in whatisthisthing
You might try /r/analog/
[–]brock_lee 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago* (0 children)
Title is absolutely inaccurate. I used the first IBM PCs starting in the early 80s. You deleted a file, the space was marked as no longer in use and could be used by new files. It was this way even in CPM.

It looks like an IBM Type 1, hermaphroditic token ring jack.
Here is a jack on a token ring MAU as an example.

TIL that dogs sneeze to let us know they’re playing and don’t want to hurt us, and they yawn to calm themselves down and also communicate no harm. by [deleted] in todayilearned
Dogs also sneeze to convey agreement, or "I'm not challenging your decision".
My dog sneezes whenever I ask if she wants to go for a walk. It's a little ritual. "Want to go for a walk?" She gets up and we walk over to where the leash is. She keeps walking, and I say "come here, sneezy" and she sneezes and turns around and comes back to get the leash on.
