it has taken me awhile to complete the investigation of your find,
there have been so many custom options offered in 'streams...
but it is absolutely ONE of TWO or THREE things...
i created a prototype safety device in jan/08 for folks trapped in the shower, that need to break out...
but also care about hygiene...
so smell the rope and if there is a whiff of lavender or lemon grass...
please send it BACK to me 4 a refill of the ducky part and a new axehead, the bubbles are free.
(there is a LONG thread here about the origins of this invention, BONUS points for ne1 who can FIND it...)
when conventional travel by 'stream on the ground is TOO slow,
or ya just need to make a quick trip 2 town for groceries...
but primarily to make a RAPID ESCAPE
from wb' events (note the nametags)
we devised a personalized bubble tube for teleportation
now again the prototype needed some modification, this rigid loop didn't fit ALL sizes and shapes...
so the rope allows for any size streamer to BEAM UP.
regardless PLEASE return yours for service, the battery needs replaced,
and we cannot guarantee WHERE it will teleport the user without updates.
occasionally at gatherings of the MSSS (most secret streamer society) we make bubbles....
large, irregular bubbles.
we've been looking for the bubble wand, it's been missing since the last drunkn'debacle (the soap was spiked)
we cannot hold the annual meeting WITHOUT it, so again please return it post haste.
recently there's been a rash of 'whut iz et' threads,
which reminded me of THIS old one.
the thread goes back so far, it predates zep's name change from 3is'...
as you can see from the varied replies, it ALWAYS helps to add a pic of the mystery item....
but the answers always involve bubbles.
yours truly the speculator...
