Bizarre plastic shape-memory

star and circle slinky

This is a slinky, singular.

The slinky was broken in half by enthusiastic children yesterday, and one half left on a car’s dashboard during the heat of the day. Et viola, the circle is complete...

...ly unlike the original star shape!

Was also pleased to see the new laptop’s serial port seeing immediate use. #1 nephew Christopher was given a Lego SpyBot, which interfaces through an RS-232 port and is pretty close to useless until it has been initialised by the main application. Mum’s new laptop doesn’t have a serial port.
