    OY!

    Can anyone tell me WHAT THE FASCINATION IS? Kevin got one from work the other day (gift or something...who knows) and he brought it home and put it on MY desk.

    NOBODY in this house seems to be able to walk past without clacking it. I'm thinking it may end up hidden in a closet very soon 'cause I can't take much more of clickclackclickclackclickclackclickclack!!!!

    Seriously, do you understand the draw?

    For those who don't know/forgot what a Newton's Cradle is:

    No idea what the fascination is but I will admit, I am powerless to resist as well :D

    I used to intern in a lab and the woman who worked next to me had one of these and LOVED the thing. Like a metronome, she said it made her think better/focus

    I HATED IT I HATED IT I HATED IT! It was like chinese water torture. I do not get it!
