This site has entertained several mentions of the Slinky Toy, a copyright of Poof Slinky, Inc., Plymouth, Michigan. The metallic Slinky has been put forward as a potential helical antenna, as a clever way to dodge a high expense.
Today I entered a dollar type store, where everything costs $5, but their slinky was plastic. Yet the young woman who helped me find it went way out of her way to serve me, while her boss was screaming for help at the register.
Second stop was K-Mart where I encountered a shopping couple in the toy aisle and asked if they’d seen a Slinky, and they allowed that they hadn’t seen one in years. The second person I came to I asked to please report to me if she saw a Slinky and she said, “I know where they are!” That’s why now I own a metallic slinky, and look forward to tinkering with it antenna wise.
If life makes sense in any way at all, it is with regard to Part 15 activity.
