    So - the BIG ONE would change the meaning of the term "skimmer cup party"!!!!! One could ACTUALLY have a party INSIDE the skimmer pump!

    When I mentioned the concept of a skimmer for a fish tank to my Mining Engineer brother-in-law, he says they're using them on many mining plants. Possibly where the origins of our skimmers came from.
