The video below has been shared with us countless times, with the suggestion that Cole might like to try it and share his experience . . .
because, well, we are the kind of family people make these suggestions to. Mostly because I don’t mind the risk of my kitchen catching fire whilst trying to cut a bottle in half, risk having the police called when a dry ice bomb explodes, the mess of experiments that include exploding twinkies, or a swimming pool filled with Oobleck in my living room. And hey, this week, I became the proud owner of a 17 gallon galvanized bucket. Cool, right?
Often, other people performing the experiments lie about the results that ordinary families can expect to achieve. I can tell you right now that you will never be able to construct a t-shirt gun from PVC pipe that will launch t-shirts to an impressive height. But that shouldn’t stop you from giving your kid the go-ahead and trying it. Try it together because it’s all about the process, the fun, the bonding experience, the mess. And much, much later, you can show the videos to your grandchildren!
And now, let us show you what you can realistically expect to achieve when you peel apples using a drill.
Thank you, Sarah, for being the person who gave us the final energetic push to give this a try. Others encouraged us, but your Facebook tag was the inspiration behind this video. By the way, you owe us a peeler, and does your sixth grader have an e-mail address?
