What in the Heck? Episode 2
[editor's note: I've placed this back up at the top because no one has answered correctly. We have decided that it is a thermometer ... but for what?]

WE HAVE A WINNER! Tom Oakes has answered correctly. It is a wine thermometer. And incidentally, no one ever said you couldn't search the web for your answer.
