and no cheating!



Warning, Spoiler:
What you're looking at is a single groove in a vinyl record, magnified 1,000x. Those lumpy parts? Dust.

A record groove, perhaps?

No, honest injun I didn't cheat. I was a radio disc jockey for several years, was a musician who did a lot of recording, and have seen photos, not that particular one, of record grooves before.

Makes one wonder how the heck the doggone needles stays in the groove.

I probably shoulda kept my mouth shut. Didn't mean to spoil the fun. I think many who view the photo will still be amazed by it

Kinda looks like my straight lines that I've dug while repairing some of the PVC sprinkler lines in our yard.

But than again I dunno, my lines usually aren't that straight ... is it a quart of chocolate ice cream after somebody sneaked the first scrapings off the hard frozen top with a spoon?

I've bent spoons doing that BTW.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Interesting. I'm surprised how much "flat" there is on either side of the groove.

I though a piece of milled metal, under an electron microscope... sheesh just not on the same page as everyone else i guess....

I have been thinking about getting a record player lately though............

Anyone have a Rega?

I agree with Rick. My first thought was that it was chocolate ice cream that had a little spooned out.
