Kitchen Sciense Suggestion?

Take a regular drinking straw and snip the end off so a sharp point is made. If you blow through the straw in just the right way it will make a sound somewhat like a kazoo. Now as the not plays, quickly begin snipping the end of the straw making it shorter and shorter (do be careful not to cut your nose off) It does something interersting, deminstarating the physics of music :)


Just one last thing

GO DUCKS!!!!

We used to do something similar with our paper bus tickets shortly before we got kicked off the bus.
There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force Šther.
