Nifty Tea Gadgets & Aardvarks
Never let it be said that the Internet is a place where you can find really, really specialized information. But if it was such a place you might run across an entire Web site devoted to...oh, I don't know, something like "bedside teamakers with an alarm function".
Now, if there were actually an entire Web site devoted to "bedside teamakers with an alarm function" - not that there is, mind you - I'm thinking that it might look something like this. It might have an entire page that lists a dazzling and bewildering variety of such gadgets, kind of like this. You might be able to find an entire page devoted to geeky technical stuff and you just might - in the best of all possible worlds, that is - be able to find more information than you'd ever dreamed of about the Samuel Rowbottom Gas Tea Maker, which was devised by none other than Samuel Rowbottom, circa 1891.
Speaking of off the wall tea sites (and I think we were), let me once again direct your attention to the Tea with George and His Aardvarks site. I've mentioned it before, but a tea-drinking gent who claims to be "an ardent advocate of aardvarks" deserves more than one plug.
