m035_3_0000_BKS_00: okay .
so , -/what I think/- +/I/+ I've had the experience of having +/alm=/+ done this in sixth grade , +/and/+ +/and/+ but we had the option of using any materials we wanted in creating anything . +/and so/+
and so , what I had% done% was , +/I/+ I took an egg and +/I/+ I slathered it with a nail polish hardener to harden the shell , and then I drew pictures on it , +/then I/+
and then +/I/+ I like encased it in something . but , other people had clever things and -/they had it padded with/- you know , +/th=/+ there was some parameters , or something like that , obviously can't do that , but , I wonder if we could get it inside this balloon .
m035_7_0001_OEIYZJ_00: yeah , I had to do that , too , actually . <%> <*T>t
m035_7_0002_OEIYZJ_00: <%> <*T>t
m035_7_0004_OEIYZJ_00: I was thinking that
we need some kind of lubricant .
m035_4_0005_VCOVWP_00: I was thinking the same thing .
m035_2_0006_QXE_00: it will break if you put it in the balloon , because it will go +/on the/+
on the bottom of the balloon .
m035_7_0007_OEIYZJ_00: +/how far/+ how far does this stretch ?
m035_4_0008_VCOVWP_00: yeah .
m035_4_0009_VCOVWP_00: yeah . yeah , it would .
m035_2_0010_QXE_00: what +/if/+ if we tape it completely , first , if we put tape around it
to prevent +/the/+ the shell to break , as you did with your polish ?
m035_3_0011_BKS_00: -/or we could always just/-
go ah= <*T>t
m035_4_0012_VCOVWP_00: that is a good idea , I think . no ?
m035_3_0013_BKS_00: no , +/I/+ -/I'm thinking ma=/- well , I mean , +/that/+ that is possible , maybe we should keep trying these ideas . +/ev=/+ even if we can't get it in here , we could always blow up the balloon . -/I wonder what would happen/- I wonder if this is one of those balloons that floats in the air .
you know , if you blow it up and then it stays in the air , and then you tie the egg to it and it gradually falls to the ground , -/or something like/- or we could always encase it in these things , like , you know , and then tape this together and , you know , we could stick the balloon in here as is like padding or <*T>t
m035_4_0014_VCOVWP_00: I don' t know .
m035_7_0017_OEIYZJ_00: yeah , you know , we should do that .
m035_7_0019_OEIYZJ_00: I think that might work .
m035_2_0020_QXE_00: mhm .
m035_3_0021_BKS_00: but , now , let us see , what can we do with a paper-clip ?
m035_2_0022_QXE_00: we don't have to use it .
m035_7_0023_OEIYZJ_00: poke the hole in the top of the cup to get the string through ?
m035_3_0024_BKS_00: see maybe% we% <*T>t
m035_2_0025_QXE_00: maybe , yeah , if
you put the balloon on the bottom
as an airbag . the egg , this , and
then we want this to fall like this ,
in this side +/to the/+ +/for/+ for the egg to be over +/the/+ the balloon .
maybe we can use +/the hair-clip/+ +/the/+ the clip to put here . and then , this , to drop it like this , maybe it will stay .
m035_3_0026_BKS_00: hm .
m035_3_0027_BKS_00: wouldn't% it% be interesting . well , what would happen if we did something like that ? if we poked a hole in here , and we had our string dangling down through here , and then it was tied through the hole after we blew up the balloon to this thing , so , it was in there , and then +/we/+ we , like , tie this , like , sort of around the egg , and then +/we/+ we tape the string to the egg , so the egg is sort of dangling in the middle , -/and if it hits/- +/and then/+ and then we like tape this around here , so that the egg isn't actually touching anything .
and if it falls , +/it is not/+ it is just kind of like in the air .
m035_7_0028_OEIYZJ_00: yeah , but the thing is , you don't know +/how/+ if the egg is gonna hit against this . -/like you can't really guarantee/- like even if the weight is like this , it can still fall like this and bang
off of it , like that .
m035_3_0029_BKS_00: mhm .
m035_2_0030_QXE_00: oh .
m035_3_0031_BKS_00: yeah , I'm wondering if there is some way that we could stick tape on the inside that would keep it immobile , or something like that ?
m035_2_0032_QXE_00: we can put tape like this ,
maybe shoul= <*T>t
m035_4_0033_VCOVWP_00: just bunch tape up .
m035_4_0034_VCOVWP_00: -/just/- you know .
m035_7_0035_OEIYZJ_00: oh , as like a cushion ?
m035_4_0036_VCOVWP_00: mhm .
m035_2_0037_QXE_00: yeah .
m035_3_0038_BKS_00: oh , well , well , that would take a lot of tape .
m035_2_0039_QXE_00: but , we have a lot .
m035_7_0040_OEIYZJ_00: we have a whole roll , that doesn't matter .
m035_3_0041_BKS_00: well , then . we could do that . we could also maybe <*T>t
m035_7_0042_OEIYZJ_00: but you don't think like if we use this as a parachute <*T>t
m035_4_0043_VCOVWP_00: I don't think it would work , unless we had that right kind of stuff in it , -/to make it/-
you know , if you just blow it up , I don't think it'll float .
m035_7_0044_OEIYZJ_00: -/like if/- I mean , if we did <*T>t
m035_7_0045_OEIYZJ_00: no , I mean , like if we used her idea of like putting little pieces of tape as like a cushion ,
and then really tried to insulate it in here and close it up . and then -/put like a/-
blew up a balloon and put a string around it , and had it like that .
I mean , +/it would/+
it would save it from a <*T>t
m035_2_0046_QXE_00: we can blow the balloon +/just to sa=/+ just to see how light it is .
m035_7_0047_OEIYZJ_00: what happened ?
+/do/+ any volunteers ? it hurts my ears when I do it .
The rest is omitted.
