Following on from my Serious science experiment post from a few days ago, the Muirs decided to have a go at this experiment (on a much smaller scale) for themselves.
So in honour of daughter number three's birthday, we bought the equipment, set it up in the back garden and without telling the girls what we were up to, set it off. The results were captured on video... well almost. Since daughter number two, who was doing the filming, didn't know what to expect, the top of the "experiment" was cut off. However, I think it's clear from the reactions just how successful it was.
P.S. Still playing with blogging directly with Flock. I was well impressed with the spell checker in Flock. Much smarter than the one built into Blogger... and it has a UK English dictionary. Hooray! It was almost what I needed to tip me over into being a Flockr rather than a Firefoxr. However, I discovered that the spell checker is available as an extension for Firefox and is called SpellBound. It took a bit of fiddling to get it to work with the latest version of Firefox, but it's working now.
