Time Marches On

No, it doesn't; it runs out. See for yourself with this hourglass full of iron filings. The steel base has a magnet, so time flies when the glass is on it, and the filings make pretty stalagmites. Stick a magnet on the neck, however, and you can stop time altogether. Glass is 5-1/2" tall on the base and filings run out in about 40 seconds (three trips make a two-minute egg) with the magnet, somewhat longer without it.

It also has a frame to hold it up off a work surface, so it doubles as a vice. Ours have wooden grips and measure 6-3/8" long with 2-7/8" serrated jaws and a 2" x 1-1/2" stand.

Hatch A T-Rex In Your Tub

Maybe. Could also be a stegosaurus, triceratops or something else--that’s part of the fun of paleontological parenthood.
