Five o’clock sunsets. Subzero temperatures. Winter tornadoes.
Wait—that’s not lovely at all.
Or is it...
Let a ray of sunshine in for Tempo Drop, a handsome bit of desk candy in the form of some archaic weather-predicting technology, available now.
Yep, this is just your average teardrop-shaped snow globe endowed with powers of meteorological clairvoyance. (That old story.) Charles Darwin actually used something like this during scientific voyages—so in a way, you’re following in his footsteps here. Except instead of discovering evolution, you’re just procuring the most awe-inspiring desk object since the drinking bird.
Inside the orb is a mix of water, ethanol and something called camphor, which is apparently an embalming agent. (So maybe don’t drink it.)
Now, while the “scientific community” doesn’t consider this a “reliable” means of “weather prediction,” we think you’ll find it plenty effective. You’ll put it on your desk. The skies will darken. An intricate network of ice-like crystals will form. And you’ll become a valued source of midday whimsy and pseudoscientific entertainment.
Kind of like a real weatherman.
