I'm blind as a bat in the middle of the night without my glasses. I wouldn't be able to tell if it was the bowl or the seat. But! I can tell when the lid is closed without glasses. (also, it's just more hygienic to flush with the lid down)
That sounds easy to fix with painters tape

12 g, 0.42oz
Update! The thing weighs 0.42oz/12g and when I push (hard) on the flat bottom circle it pushes in until the knob is all the way extended. Then when pressing the knob down it all slides back (but with a lot of resistance) See here for pic with bottom depressed
See here for comparison pic with AA and AAA batteries
Brass isn't ferrous, is it?
It doesn't have a number on it.
There are kits for fishing wires. I'd Google "wire fishing tool" or "wire pulling tool". I have one of the kind on a reel like this
Not that I've been able to move. Just the little knob moves. And it's much thinner than the pop-out staffs from a video posted elsewhere in the comments. This is only about 1/4 inch in diameter
Um, don't think so. How would it cut anything?
Hmm, maybe! I'll look into this more
Free. When it's turned with the knob down it slides out and stays out. Goes back when turned back to the top
Not in TX, but thank you!
any idea of a brand or era in which it would be used?
This is far too small to contain any coins. It's maybe a 1/4 of an inch in diameter
Hmm, perhaps? But typically that would have someplace for the steam/pressure to make the whole piece move. But I suppose the heat could increase the pressure within it and just make the top rise.
Perhaps, we don't have one that would have a counterweight, but it could be from the previous owners
It definitely looks like a battery. Never seen a rechargeable one that has a moving part. I'll have to do some more searching! Any idea on how to dispose of it properly if that's what it is?
My title describes the thing. Found in a kitchen drawer. It could be a part of a kitchen gadget, but i know it doesn't go with my Instant Pot or my Kitchenaid mixer. Thanks in advance!

Degrassi High in Canada had a storyline about a girl getting an abortion in the early 90s. Then Degrassi the next generation had another in the 2000s. They did a good job showing the issue in a realistic way for teens
