Along with the Spelling Bee at Monocacy Elementary School last night, we were also entertained with a Science Fair. HOOoooo-Doggy did we see the gamut of ideas…everything from one end of the science spectrum to the other.
We’re talking a range from Mom-and-Dad-Had-A-Serious-Hand-In-This, to, Are-You-Kidding-Me?-Simple.
There were way cool projects on Bio Fuel and Kinetic Energy, to homemade plastics (made with vinegar and milk…go figure…)
Some were extremely intricate like this one:
And some were simpler. For instance, my personal favorite….MOLD.
I mean, come on, to be able to look at your lunch and see a potential science project, you’ve got one heck of an analytical mind (or a piss poor cook for a mommy).
But had you ever wondered how fast mold would grow depending on the food source? Well, wonder no more…this little person has figured it out for you.
And what we can come away with here is the knowledge that Twinkies are better for you than bread because they won’t carry mold or other harmful bacterias.
At least, that’s what I came away with.
You never saw that series of links about mcdonalds and mold? Someone had cheeseburger n fries from Mcdonalds..and 6 months later looked like you just bought it. NO MOLD. NO KIDDING. They had a homemade cheeseburger and homemade fries to show a difference.
Did you see the movie “Wal-E”? Besides LOVING the movie, I found it hilarious that after hundreds & hundreds of years TWINKIES were still fesh in their packages! Incidentally, after the movie Melissa decided it was very unfair that she had NEVER been given the opportunity to enjoy one of these delicacies. So I bought her a box (‘cuz you can’t buy just ONE). She took ONE tiny bite & said, “BLECH!! That’s GROSS!” Uhh Huh… THAT’S why I don’t buy them! Tossed them into to trash (where they’ll be nice & fresh in the dump in a coupla’ hundred years)…
