According to my subscription(JK) of "Modern Drunkard Magazine" (not kidding, a real thing just found it)

a 2 oz. flask is called a breath freshener
a 4 oz. flask is called a casual carry
I didn't see a name for the 3 oz.

Also, the bottom will come off on some of them to serve as a cup.

Enjoy.

Good info. I guess Forrest's flask is not that small then, just somewhat small. However, I can't help thinking that 3/16 means something if he is prone to putting hints in scrapbooks.

I think it is still on the small side as far as flasks go.
I read the most common flask size nowadays is 6 or 8 oz.
Not that it matters.

The stick man in the image on Dal's site is different than the one Decall posted from the book. I think the difference is meant to draw your attention to a clue.

He's holding a pair of "real" binoculars in his left hand instead of his right hand, and the old binoculars have been edited to remove one lens so it looks like a cup/flask. Does the hint have something to do with left/right?

I don't think so.

3/16 = 0.1875

Maybe 1875 is a hint ?

Just one highlight of that year :

RE: Binocular Guy - OUAW
ALVIN MFG, in 1800's, created a process of pouring the silver over/around glass and carving away the silver to make the design. Much like carving everything away from the wax mold that doesn't look like a rabbit, or buffalo...

An example...[Image: 2a1b212010a6a8b1c849dde804ae6f20.jpg]

RE: Binocular Guy - OUAW
maybe we're supposed to take 3/16 and multiply it by 16/6

RE: Binocular Guy - OUAW
3*16=48

16*6=96

3/16 * 16/6 = 48/96 = 1/2

why are we supposed to multiply by 16/6?
Where did the 16/6 come from?
