Whew......

OK, I don't think this has been asked before, but what size is this thing; shot glass, cocktail glass, 23 oz mug? Give me something I can relate to Everything I've looked at is around eyepiece to lens body size with some resemblance, but no exact matches.... nor would I think any of the things I've looked at be used as a toy or made into a toy. And I've looked at quite a few science kits. Way, way too many
BTW, do you know someone on the web is selling gasoline super soakers? Complete with gas can and matches?

Sounds like whatever it might be has the "thar" or "there" or you want us to unscramble the misspelled words??

Thar has come up a couple times now, but I would say it is more slang than misspelled... how else would you say "that thar over yonder"? Well, I wouldn't say that at all, but you know what I mean But I have singled out thar anyway for its repetition and also spin and scope and maybe broaden.....

Now, they haven't lead me anywhar,,,,
So a couple "WAGs" would be a simple monocular and/or a night vision scope, but those guesses don't hold true to the "if you know what it does, you know what it is" clue, as they aren't really broken apart that way. And the dang thing is a modern toy now. That one really has me stumped.

So............ that's where I'm at. No closer today than I was yesterday.
