I've been meaning to blog - no, I haven't given up on it yet - but was having some serious blogger's block.
And then I remembered this fantastic video I've been meaning to share:
"How to Charge an iPod Using Electrolytes and an Onion"
Ok, so maybe it's really nerdy, and really kind of lame (blame the blogger's block again), but it WORKS! amazing.
I can't imagine that the USB cord survives after this little experiment, but I'm not about to sacrifice mine to try the experiment for myself (stupid expensive Apple proprietary devices).
And I have to give serious props to the site responsible for this video, Household Hacker. Definitely way too many ways to hurt yourself/burn down the house/get arrested, but fantastically entertaining.
This puts me in the mood for some kitchen science.
I promise I'll break out my safety goggles from undergrad research...
