But it wasn't for science

Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
SCIENCE.


…….Close enough

The difference between Science and Engineering.

No, the difference between physics and engineering

what kind of dye do you use on your hair? I am dying my hair blue in august and I have manic panic voodoo blue but I keep hearing how much manic panic sucks and how fast it fades (which I have experienced before). do you use anything different?

i hope you don’t mind me publishing this with a really wordy answer, but i get questions like this a lot so i’m sort of turning this into a FAQ.

i would also like to preface all this by stating that i am not a hairdresser, but i have been bleaching & dying my hair with veggie dyes for the past 7 years. my hair has never fallen out and, in fact, remains pretty soft and healthy. 

i have used special effects, punky, directions, and manic panic and while special effects is pretty much the king of hair dye imho, most of my experiences with manic panic have been really great. while i really hated the purple haze that i purchased (every dye brand has at least one color that just plain sucks) i am absolutely in love with their atomic turquoise, enchanted forest, electric banana, after midnight blue, and now my current color, electric lizard.

i think manic panic’s bad reputation is a little unfair, as i personally think it measures up to all the other brands i’ve used. here are my recommendations/tips/tricks. following these steps usually lets me keep my color for 3-4 weeks without significant fading.

  1. bleach your hair, even if you already have light hair - this makes the hair more “porous”, so to speak, and allows your hair to absorb dye better and will make your color turn out more vibrant. you absolutely do not have to bleach, but dying will work much better if you do. edit: here is a really good bleach tutorial, if you haven’t bleached before i recommend it! one thing i would add, though, is to not wash your hair for a few days leading up to bleaching - this will help protect your hair from some damage
  2. if you still have brassy (or orange) tones after bleaching, either bleach again or use a toner to get rid of them, especially if using a cool color dye like blue, green, or purple (cool colors + orange = murky, brownish color)
  3. saturate your hair really well with the dye - be sure to cover it all and don’t be afraid to use the dye up! that’s what you bought it for, right? ;)
  4. use a hair dryer on your hair after you apply the dye, until the hair feels crispy to the touch
  5. i know the container says to leave the dye in for 30 minutes, but in my experience, you should leave the dye in for at least 3 hours! i like to go up to 6 if i have the time. it may sound scary but manic panic is a “veggie dye”, so it is actually good for your hair and will help replenish some moisture that bleaching took out
  6. rinse it out with water as cold as you can stand it until the water runs totally clear
  7. after rinsing, make sure to use a conditioner to lock in the color - i have been using ion’s “after color treatment”, a packet of which costs $2-$3 at Sally Beauty Supply (it closes your hair cuticles, which bleaching opens up to allow dye absorption)
  8. towel dry or blow dry, whatever you are comfortable with!
  9. continue to clean your hair with cold water when you shower/style. hot water will strip the color faster!
  10. the last and most important step is to stop shampooing your hair so much. i think this is where a lot of people go wrong, especially with manic panic. i know the idea grosses some folks out, but frequent shampooing is not good for your hair. shampoo strips out your hair’s natural oils (and your dye along with them!) and then your body tries to overcompensate by creating more oils, which makes your hair greasy. i used to have very greasy hair, but once i stopped shampooing so frequently, my hair evened itself out. i still get my hair wet, and i still use conditioner, but i only shampoo maybe once or twice a month and my hair doesn’t get greasy at all! dry shampoos are also a godsend, as they can help give your hair volume and can also diminish the appearance of grease.

that’s it! like i said, i have been using this method for about 7 years and it works really well for me, so i highly recommend it. and honestly, what’s the point of spending the time and money and effort dying your hair if you’re just going to wash it out right away, right?

forgetting hot beverages and remembering them when they are cold beverages is a cruel reminder of the passage of time and how it can appear like nothing has changed but it has 

but it has
