Temperature Is Magnifico!
GLASS GALILEO'S THERMOMETER
Galileo wasn’t just a character in a Queen song. He invented stuff, like this early thermometer, uncreatively named Galileo’s Thermometer. Looks sort of like a clear glass turkey baster, minus the bulb you squeeze, or a giant regular thermometer. But don’t stick this under your tongue or anywhere else. Stands 11” tall and it’s filled with water. Inside, (6) balls filled with colored liquid (and have temperature values hanging from them) float in the water, letting you know, using the principles of density and buoyancy, what the temperature is—from 64F to 84F. It’ll make you seem smart when you translate the balls’ positions for your guests. Even if you never use it to tell the temp, it’s a beauty for your shelf.
