      Of asking random stuff (never have I ever) what is the worst Christmas present you’ve ever given or been given. My worst recieved purely because it tasted awful was Root Beer it tastes like Dandelion & Burdock but you’re drinking it in a hospital that’s thoroughly cleaned hourly.............

      I got given; by a wealthy Uncle; a light bulb. Well, it looked like one. It was some solar-power experiment gizmo that was about as interesting and useful as a chocolate fireguard! You sat it on a windowsill and a little propeller-thing spun around in the sunlight. Very entertaining.....

      Actually, forget that. I'd rather of had a chocolate fireguard.

      Aww, I'd have done you a swap for a solar-bulb-thing...
      From an elderly relative. "I know you're allergic to coconut so I didn't get you that Ferrero collection again and I know you love Lindt so I got you these. They said they new and I knew that you liked mint".

      My Aunty got the mint ones lol.

      a radiometer?

      No, that's honestly what they're called. …No, that's honestly what they're called. https://science.howstuffworks.com/question239.htm



      Yes, sorry PBFH. I knew what you meant! Hehe. No, this had a little solar panel to work a tiny motor-prop. It really served no purpose (other than show you how sunlight converts to electricity) whereas Radiometers, from what I remember work on magnetic fields - or something? School was a long time ago!
      Nope. Shows what I remember. It's a measure of electromagnetic (or infrared/ultraviolet) radiation.

      Every days a school day eh?

      No. I had one until the cat knocked it over, works on sunlight. looks like an upside down lightbulb with four little sails in it. Put it on the wwindowsill and the propeller thing turns.

      Ah, that's a particular version - a solar radiometer. Yes. This thing did look very similar but it didn't have the black and white vanes - which is how a solar radiometer works. Same principal as when people say "Wear white on a hot day." White reflects light and therefore heat and black does the opposite.

      Some horrible tacky plastic ornament from a family member who said they saw it and thought of me. It was like the gift that kept on taking!

      That’s the kind of gift that would accidentally get smashed on purpose by accident obviously
