12/28/2005: From the Files of "Haven't Tried This One...Yet"
The article is a fun description of the Silly Putty-esque Escapade that followed.
[Hat Tip to Digg.com]
Haven't tried that one yet. Though the family story is told about my eldest brother who got his *egg* of Silly Putty back when the stuff first appeared in 1957.
He had so much fun squishing and forming and bouncing the fabulous-goop that he refused to part with it or put it back in its egg container. Clutching it tightly in his hand, he even took it to bed with him.
One of the properties of this amazing polymer is its ability to "flow" when warmed up...as my brother found out.
Grasped tightly in his *hot* little hand, the Silly Putty melted and flowed right out his hand sticking the side of his head, his hair and hand to his pillowcase. The next morning my mother had to cut all his hair off the side of his head to free him from the Silly Putty. (And that pillowcase and glop of Silly Putty was consigned to the trash never to be seen again.)
But it still FUN stuff. Tho' I don't think I'll be Bulk ordering 250 pounds of it any time soon. *teehee*
