Musings

These are my random thoughts. I like to pretend to be very intellectual. Sometimes my posts are deep and sometimes they are about the weather, but they are always worth reading ;)

Solid CO2

So today I stayed home from work to clean up the house a little bit in anticipation for the arrival of Lucky Lime and Miss Moon from Flo. We got a UPS delivery which was very exciting. Frozen burgers and franks from Omaha, YUM. The best part though was underneath all the meat was a package of dry ice. I told Max I had a surprise for him and when I gave him the bag of ice he was not very thrilled. I told him it was dry ice and his reaction was "so?". I told him it was cool ice, no pun intended. So we started playing with it and pretty soon Bruddy joined in the fun. Here are some pictures of our different "experiments".

First thing you do is take a small piece of dry ice and pour water on top.

TA-DA... "smoke".

Then we put dish soap in it...

The bubbles were frozen...


So when you popped them they turned smoky again.


Bruddy got a pretty tall stack but it broke in half shortly after this shot.


Notice the concentration :)


Then we decided to put Germ-X(one of my favorite things) in on top of the soap. This is what happens... bigger bubbles.


The thin dark piece is the dry ice.


I think this is baking soda and vinegar but I'm not 100% sure.


"NO, Bruddy!" (*Please do not eat or inhale dry ice*)

Closed off.... and OPEN!

The little scientist


Here is a view of all the "experiments" going on... Bruddy is taking videos on his phone.

You're such a professional photographer...with MY camera! Seriously, these are good shots.

So glad you didn't get a picture of my butt in there whilst taking all those fantastic pics.
