My Magic 8 Ball seems to have died. What's up with that! Some type of chemical degradation has occurred in the 8-ball solution. The fluid is bubbly and no longer sufficiently buoyant; the multi-sided fortune-telling die is no longer monostable inside the fluid and, thus, not a decisive predictor of one's future or a reliable answerer of one's life-changing questions.
I wonder if it is heat-sensitive; the 8=ball has been sitting near my TV, VCR or DVD player for the most part.
What is that stuff, anyway?
It also seems that, somehow, some evaporation has taken place, since more of the die is revealed.
I need to look into this. Seriously. Cause I don't have enough to do.
Also, a Magic 8 Ball would make a swell non-Valentine's Day gift. Just saying.
