mini smoke monster

The other day we had a package arrive that was shipped with some dry ice. I attempted to teach kids about the science of dry ice and take some pictures. The kids ended up spending the next hour popping the bubble wrap. So much for science.

This was pretty much the only picture that turned out halfway decent. I took a lot. Believe me.

Hey, it was no contest. When it comes to packaging entertainment value, bubble wrap always wins. :-)

"But really, the Smoke Monster is [*reaches forward to pull off the rubber mask*] Mister Whitherspooner, the malt shop owner!"

Cool experiment - better luck with the pictures next time, although the one you posted is actually pretty neat.

Today's captcha: "pricalog" - that's just weird.

Florinda: Yeah, I know. But it was making smoke. Cone on! :)

Unfocused: And he would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for us meddling kids.

Capturing the smoke was tough. I think a lot had to do with the lighting.
