None of the above. You could whirl it over your head if you want to, but that's not its use, design or purpose. It doesn't play ambient noise. It doesn't detect weather. It doesn't sharpen pencils.

You *might* use it to help with the main purpose of this forum...

YT, I think his "atmosphere" response was probably an answer to my question about the plant (there for a reason or for atmosphere).

So it has something to do with cooking? Do you put it in a pot of something to let something slowly disperse into a soup or something? I don't know if anything like that actually exists, but it's all I could think of right now!

Is is put in a pot to "alert" you to a potential boil-over? Perhaps making a rattling sound or such in the pan?

Ackkk, are you kidding me? I just started searching through scuba stuff thinking that depth is measured in atmospheric pressure (or something like that).

I've been sidetracked!

Is it the world's smallest flute?
Is it a dog whistle?
