Watching Paint Dry — paint that never drys
Watching Paint That Never Dries
Mixing motor oil with paint prevents the paint from drying.
Invite fellow dull men over to your house to watch paint dry. Before they arrive, paint the wall they will be watching with paint mixed with motor oil. Please email us letting us know how it turns out.
The scientific background behind this phenomenon is explained here: http://www.ccmr.cornell.edu/education/ask/?quid=1000
A classic — by Norman Cousins
The nurse brought a lunch tray to Norman Cousins who was in a hospital “laughing his way to wellness.” The nurse also brought Mr. Cousins a cup for a urine specimen, saying that when convenient he should put a specimen in the cup, that she’d pick it up when she came back to pick up the tray.
Mr. Cousins, seeing some apple juice on the tray, put two and two together. He poured the juice in the specimen glass.
The nurse came back. She picked up the specimen, held it up to the light and said, “Mr. Cousins, this looks a little off, the color doesn’t seem quite right, are you feeling okay?”
Mr. Cousins reached out his hand for the glass and said, “Here, let me look.” After looking at it, he said, “Okay, I’ll run it through again,” then drank it.
The nurse fainted.
