It is used as it is, with the hinged side pointing toward you.

I have tried!

Okay, you can laugh when I say it does something to something else, but not everything does something to something else!

I have indicated that you should pay attention to the clues about the mirror, magnification, etc. Notice the hole near the top. And think about naughty boys and ants.

P.S. I am in the process of switching things over to another computer, so I will appear to be here but will be in and out.

Nope.

What do naughty little boys like to do to ants? What practical application can you think of?
