    So this thing goes so slow...it says 1 rotation every 4 hours...

    So do I have to wait 4 hours to see if this thing works?!

    No. It should do a slow tilt, like an ultra slow rocking motion.. So check on it half an hour or so later and if its off center you know it is working. Otherwise it is like watching paint dry, they turn so slow!! :)

    Just set like a tube of lipstick or fingernail polish on it and come back later to see if it fell off.
