Secrets of the Magic 8-Ball Revealed

Hanttula.com opens up a Magic 8-Ball and reveals the secret workings inside! (I knew how it worked, of course, but I was surprised to learn the whole thing isn't filled with liquid.)

Then I went and dusted off my old Magic 8-Ball, and looked at it. Aww, it's getting low. There's about 1/4 inch of empty space at the top of the liquid, and I can see the top face of the message ball and parts of the adjoining faces. I asked it if it would one day spring a leak and make a mess, and it said, "IT IS CERTAIN".
