What is this thing 15

What is this thing 是 reddit 上的一个社区(community),上面时不时会有人发一些没见过的玩意来提问。

一起来看看吧!

窗上的怪圈

Q: These strange dust patterns keep showing up on screens of my apartment windows.

这些奇怪的灰尘图案不断出现在我公寓窗户的窗纱上。

怪圈

A: Previous tenant smoked w a fan in the window. I’ve seen this so many times turning over apartments for work.
That mark is going to keep coming back until you wash the entire window screen.
I suggest removing the screen and washing it in the tub with a good dish soap.

前任房客在窗户上用风扇吸烟。我为工作而经常换公寓,见过很多次这样的情况。

在你清洗整个窗纱之前,这个印记会不断出现。

我建议把窗纱拆下来,在浴缸里用好的洗洁精清洗。

OK 绷

Q: This was in my bandaid wrapper instead of a bandaid. Almost rubbery. Solid construction, not sticky, same on opposite side.

这是在我的创可贴包装中发现的,而不是创可贴。几乎像橡胶一样。结构牢固,没有粘性,反面也一样。

OK绷

A: Looks like a manufacturing error where that may be the start, or end, of a production run. Either that or a golden ticket to see Billy Blanca at the band aid factory.

看起来是一个制造错误,这可能是生产的开始,或结束。要么就是一张去创可贴工厂见比利·布兰卡的金票。

Q: I saw this in a theater, what it this piece of metal ? (8 years questionning myself. Please help)

我在剧院里看到这个,这块金属是什么?(一个困扰我 8 年的问题,请帮帮我)

圆柱体金属

A: Solved ! It seems it’s a light but school didn’t pay for this option.

解决了! 这似乎是一盏灯,但这是选配的,学校没有买。

小便池

Q: What is this toilet’s purpose? No additional details available.

这个厕所的用途是什么?没有其他细节。

小便池

A urinal for women: https://deabath.com/product/1950s-vintage-standard-female-urinal-prop-rental/

Here we have a 1950’s Standard “Sanistand” Female urinal. Strangely enough, these weren’t terribly popular, but Standard did make them between the mid-1950’s up through the early 1960’s.

女用小便池:https://deabath.com/product/1950s-vintage-standard-female-urinal-prop-rental/

我们这里有一个1950年代的标准「Sanistand」女式小便池。奇怪的是,这些小便池并不十分流行,但标准公司在 20 世纪 50 年代中期至 60 年代初期间确实生产了这些小便池。

紧急

Q: Large, white container found on flatbed on the highway in Midwest US. Says “Urgent” on the label.

在美国中西部高速公路的平板车上发现的大型白色集装箱,标签上写着「紧急」。

集装箱

A: It’s a shipping container for a General Electric CF34 Turbofan Engine, commonly fitted to Embraer and Bombardier Jets.
It’ll be urgent because there will be an Aircraft sat on the ground waiting for it (AOG).

这是一个装着通用电气CF34涡轮风扇发动机的运输集装箱,通常安装在巴西航空工业公司和庞巴迪飞机上。

它很紧急,因为会有一架飞机在地面上等着它(AOG)。

(译者注:AOG 应该是 Aircraft on ground,表示问题严重到足以阻止飞机飞行。)

Q: Large concrete containers with slab lid. Completely enclosed. Being buried together. Hundreds.

混凝土箱

A: Spread out along a roadway makes me think they’re used for storm water retention and they will be drilled for pipe connections once they are buried

沿着道路铺开,让我觉得它们是用来保留雨水的,一旦被掩埋,它们将被钻进管道连接。
