We were pleasantly surprised this morning to find a very exciting and suggestive photograph in our inbox. The sender included no details about the image except for the ransom style message below with the phrase “All UR Nanoz R Belong 2 Us”. The half dollar obscures most of the pump’s design features but what little we can see seems to indicate that this is some kind of propeller style water pump. Going from the size of the coin, we estimate the visible part of the water pump to have a diameter of 2.5″ but that is where the trail ends. We have some thoughts about what this photo could represent and hopefully we’ll learn more about it at this weekend’s Marine Aquarium Expo. Let us know what you think in the comments.
