Retrieving the Hot-Ometer
Hot-Ometer: the product of a collaborative effort between Henry Busse, Naval Special Ops and the Al Cass Valve oil corporation; originally designed to ameliorate the Aestheto-Military Gap verified by U-2 fly-by's of the 1959 Pinsk Jazz and Hermitage Festival. Some elements of design remain classified, but it is known that the system utilized loading coils in parallel with reciprocating mirrors, the impulses generated therein being directed toward a photograph of Mezzrow's legal guardian, dancing the rhumba with a bottle of cheap rye balanced on his head. When the head was turned upside down, one of three answers appeared: "Yes," "No," or "Antimacassar."
