We visited the Cleveland Science Center. I’ve never been a big science center kind of guy but when you’re in Cleveland in December, you either have to find indoor activities for the kiddies to burn off their energy or suffer the consequences.
There were some really cool exhibits. They had a working Theramin. That’s the device that makes weird spacey sounds when you wave your hand near it. It’s featured in Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys. They also had a plasma tube. There’s an electric current running inside and if you touch the side of the glass, the current attached itself to your fingers.
How neat is that?! I called 3-Year Old Daughter over. I wanted a picture of her grasping the tube. I thought it would make for a nice blog photo. She reached up and lightly touched it with the tip of her index finger. I wanted her to have a better connection so I pressed her palm against the tube.
WAAAHHHH! Daddy you PINCHED ME! AAaaagghhh! I want MOMMY!
Do this, don’t do that,
can’t you read the signs?
