The Crystal Jewel

The other day, I was reminded of a recent visit to Questacon, our National Science and Technology Centre where my favourite exhibit involved swapping a rather large jewel with a bag of sand.

Sense-a-Swap

Swap a ‘diamond’ sitting on a pressure sensor with a bag of sand, so you don’t wake the statue

Much like the Indiana Jones movie, the skull (or in this case, diamond) was sitting on a pressure sensitive plate so you can see the similarities.

I admit I had to try this a couple of times but I’m happy to report I emerged victorious.

Meanwhile, it seems my NPC is getting a name change to something more fitting for a Blood Elf. Too bad I can’t just be an anomaly. :P

  1. Sorry to hear about the name change.

    cough Johnny Awesome cough

    (Since Jones derides from the name John, and Johnny is canonically a Blood Elf, Jones isn’t so far a reach!)

    • Oh you’re right, I forgot about him. It’s ok though, at least ‘Cymre’ is still being used.
