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.

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.


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.

3/16 = 0.1875

Maybe 1875 is a hint ?

Just one highlight of that year :

The math just works out right don't it? and changing hands? oh my and three shots? imo
just saying ss

Another word for flask can be jar. Who jarred him...?
The right blaze..

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

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

RE: Binocular Guy - OUAW
16-6 leads you to a magical area of the poem on line 16 as well as the glow of the gold

and gold is word 166

the magic gypsy drawing has a 16 in the grass and 6 people

the other way here is by using another fraction that is the same. 16/6 = 8/3

word 83 is the middle of the poem. halfway

use this fraction to multiply by the size of the flask and the product is a half. 1/2

RE: Binocular Guy - OUAW
Gold comes from latin aurum

you will find meaning and etymology to be .... glow / dawn / glow of sunrise / shining dawn

so, imo, line 10 is saying the end is dawn (drawing)

that drawing is hiding dawn is reinforced by the multiple hidden "norths" in nigh

north and nord (german/french) in the crossword

if you look up the origin of north, it comes from the same words which meant nigh/left, because as they faced the sun rising/dawn, north was on their left

so the end is dawn, or the glow of the sunrise, is saying the end is gold

so it is self referential to gold being the end of the poem

the "go" in line 16 has both "gol" and "glow" in the poem crossword

go is line 16 - 6, and gold is word 166, so the importance of this number in connection to a golden end is being reaffirmed

if you count to letter 166 it starts this letter series n-b-e-l-o

go in peace is connecting 166 to both gold and nobel peace prize

there are additional prominent placements of rewar and reward, the "er draw" in line 10 placed right on the "dawn" hint, again a connection of "the end" with gold and nobel peace reward
Go Rams!
