Try as I might, I can't recall how they were called. Maybe I never knew in the first place, but they were all the rage for a period in time.


Here's what I was talking about earlier. Slime wasn't the real deal unless it had worms.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!

The liquid that bubbled in your hand was Dichloromethane I think, a very low boiling point so the heat of your hand would boil it. Also used in those "drinking birds" for the same reason.

Yeah, but what was that gimmick called? It looked like a sandclock and if you closed your palm around it, the liquid bubbled to the upper end. A bit like communicating vessels.

I can't even search for it, since I don't know what to look for.

If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

I remember Pop Rocks quite well. Candy that sizzled in your mouth. Would not advise drinking cola with them though.

I also remember: candy cigarettes, the bobbing glass bird that wore a hat, a little plastic gorilla that smoked tiny cigarettes, trading stickers that were goofy takes on then current advertising (e.g. "shake and quake" for Shake 'N Bake)--those really cracked me up.

On a similar note, everyone and his brother was into nunchaku in the late 70s.  Can't tell you how many times I took a shot to the bollocks.

Oh yes. Everyone was....
