Worrisome, part 2

Found in my science book:

"During the experiment, please be careful!! Do not let your face get too close to the jar, because it might crack!"

I never thought of THAT reason for not putting your face to close to a jar. :D

After all, nothing is worse than a cracked face!

I agree! Don't you just hate it when that happens? It's almost as foul as a bad hair day.

Ah, those good old misplaced modifiers. Got to love 'em.

May I ask what experiment would make your face crack shieldmaiden? Sounds like a nasty one.

I was using copper wire to channel energy from a 9 volt battery into a glass jar full of water.
It was quite interesting.

X-ON Designer said...

Did you have baking power/soda in the water?

beatrice said...

Yes. I later tried the same thing in the backyard, only with vinegar instead of water.
The effect?
KABOOM!!!!!

This is one of the main differences between The Shieldmaiden and I-- she loves to do the experiments, and elaborate on them, and tinker with them, whereas I would just as soon take their word for it.

LOL. I had done the same thing with baking soda in water. After puting a battery in the water I cought the hydrogen in a test tube and lit it. How Fun! The little explosion was just that, a little explosion. Hydrogen is so fun. (Please do not try unless your a pyro.) Try and beat that with baking soda and vinegar next time.
