El secreto de la bola 8

This innocent-looking outer shell houses the mysterious inner-workings of the magic 8-ball

We're all familiar with its sage advice. But how is such wisdom generated? Are you ready for the truth?

Once cracked, an astonishing secret is revealed. The inside is not a sphere but a cylinder... a CYLINDER ! ! !

This shot reveals the simplistic construction of this portable oracle.

A close-up of the 'magic' cylinder.
But, what is inside, you ask? What is inside?

Finally revealed, for all the world to see.
The previously clandestine mechanics of the magic 8-ball. If you're wondering what the blue fluid inside the cylinder is, well, we're sorry to report that our tests have found it to be nothing more than water with blue dye.

But, you may be asking yourself, "How can these simple plastic forms have so ingeniously guided my most important life decisions?"
Yes, it's true. Much of the magic 8-ball's power remains a mystery even after this in-depth exploration. But, at the very least, you have come a step closer to the truth of the power that is "the magic 8-ball."
