The design of this air gun reminds me of certain teapot.
Without actually clicking through to garner context, my first thought was "The designer of the air gun played old-rules CtFwS?"
Was it "I'm a little teapot" before it was "Yankee Doodle"?
No, the _other_ belt that no longer exists was "I'm a little teapot".
Neither of them exist now?
That's crazy talk.
Wait what? No the "yankee doodle" one still exists. "I'm a little teapot' is gone.
Aha! A case where heavier marking helps avoid ambiguity. I love these. (I read that the same way jcreed did; two commas would've made it clear.)
Oh, I see. Some people would also say that you're supposed to say "which", not "that", but I think the commas' presence or absence completely trumps the whichthatness in determining my perception of [non]restrictiveness in this case.
Ohhh. I couldn't parse it at all until I read your suggestion about commas.
The former still exists; the latter was culled in v2.0.
Oh yeah, I think I remember something about a Belt of Chastity that prevents the opposite sex from capturing you. Never played that version--I'm guessing Deanna told me about it at some point.
Because of keming, I honestly thought that this comment said "gamer context" and wondered what anything had to do with gamers.

The iPhone livejournal app taunts me with blue highlighted words. Which can't be clicked on.
Before clicking on the links, I thought I was going to see a gun that bore a striking resemblance to the Utah teapot

Rob, your link worked. Why didn't jcreed's?
Me too. I was really excited!
You've read the comments on the air gun thing? It is, as one might expect, a consequence of the gauge bring on the air canister. The canister is only mounted when shooting, a time during which the pressure is not important data because, not being an idiot, you checked the gauge beforehand and filled the canister. It is stored removed for pseudo-safety issues I don't fully understand.
