Memory Lane: Gumby

This is the introduction to the 1967 Gumby TV show. Created by the late Art Clokey, Gumby was a kid-TV fixture for many years. I have to confess I’ve always been fond of him as an adult. I mean, what could be more innocent than Gumby?

I hope this brief video brings back pleasant memories for you. As for me, it’s time to go out and stand in the snow before it’s finished melting.

Some Harmless Fun

I don’t know about you, but I need some comic relief, and I need it now.

What happens when you toss some pieces of Mentos candy into a bottle of Diet Coke? The above video will show you what happens. There is a very violent reaction–which is still perfectly safe as long as you avoid doing certain idiotic things.

Don’t try this indoors.

Don’t put Mentos in your mouth and then pour in some Diet Coke. Please do not do this. They’re calling it a “challenge” and filming themselves doing it. If you insist on trying this, remember–this blog told you not to.

Don’t do this inside your car.

These mistakes are very easy to avoid–and you can still have fun with this simple, albeit simple-minded, home science experiment.

Happy landings.
