I have to agree with Snowbird. That is what I figgered out. I do like Tgallagher's timer much better.
Regarding the term "hourglass" I've often wondered if the sand in an hourglass was supposed to take one hour to fall.

Speaking of terms for items. I have two sticks of wood at my house. Both or marked in "one inch" increments. I call the one that has 36 one inch increments on it a "Yardstick", but the one that has 48 one inch increments on it, I don't know what to call it.

I have a couple of hour glasses. And yes, they are fairly accurate in measuring an hour's time.
I don't know what the name for a 4 foot measuring stick is.
Yardstick is 3 feet
Meter stick is 39.3 inches
Cubit is 1.5 feet
Fathom is 6 feet.

I think that if somebody here has a grandkid that is in 2 or 3 grade than ask them. They will know the answer.

Next time you go to a hardware store ask them if they have a yard stick. When they show you one ask if they have one shorter. The look on their face is priceless.

My 48 inch "stick" is a level. If yours doesn't have a bubble glass in it, then it's just a 4 foot measuring stick.
