Black Light Jell-o

Black Light Jell-o


“So why does the Jello glow? Quinine (an ingredient in tonic water) is a fluorescent substance. These substances absorb ultraviolet light and then re-emit it. The light emitted has a longer wavelength than the one absorbed which makes the light visible and causes quinine to glow. When you substitute tonic water for regular tap water when making the Jello, it adds the quinine which adds the glow. It is better to use light-colored Jello for maximum glow.”


Step 1:

You will need the following:

  • *Jello (light-colored Jello such as Lemon or Lime will work best for this project)
  • *16oz of tonic water
  • *Stove
  • *Liquid measuring cup
  • *Small pot for boiling water
  • *Mixing bowl
  • *Mixing spoon
  • *Refrigerator
  • *Small Table Lamp with fluorescent blacklight (The blacklight must be fluorescent and not simply a colored bulb. It can be purchased at most Wal-Mart locations for around $4.00)

STEP 2: MEASURE OUT TONIC WATER

  • Measure out 8oz (1 cup) of tonic water in a liquid measuring cup.

STEP 3: POUR TONIC WATER INTO POT

  • Pour tonic water into pot.

STEP 4: TURN STOVE BURNER ON HIGH

  • Put pot on burner and turn on high.

STEP 5: POUR JELLO PACKET INTO MIXING BOWL

  • While water is boiling, pour Jello packet into mixing bowl.

STEP 6: POUR BOILING WATER INTO MIXING BOWL

  • Once water has boiled, pour the boiling tonic water into mixing bowl.

STEP 7: STIR UNTIL DISSOLVED

  • Stir together Jello and boiling tonic water, making sure that the Jello powder fully dissolves.

STEP 8: ADD COLD WATER

  • Add one cup of cold tap water to the mixing bowl.
  • Alternate method: If you would like your Jello to glow more brightly, add one cup of cold tonic water instead of tap water. However, doing this will make the Jello taste more bitter than normal.

STEP 9: CHILL IN FRIDGE

  • Place the mixing bowl in the fridge and chill for four hours.

STEP 10: REMOVE AND TEST WITH BLACKLIGHT

Autumn’s False Dawn – Tonight, September 29th, 2016

Autumn’s False Dawn

“The next few weeks offer a wonderful opportunity to catch the mysterious zodiacal light – aka the false dawn – of autumn. The moon is out of the morning sky for the next two weeks, leaving it dark to see this elusive phenomenon. The zodiacal light can be seen in the east, preceding dawn’s first light. Look over the sunrise point on the horizon about 120 to 80 minutes before sunrise.”

“If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, where it’s the spring equinox (rather than the autumn equinox) that happened a week ago, the zodiacal light appears in your western sky, beginning about an hour after the sun goes down. However, the moon is about ready to enter the evening sky, so watch for the zodiacal light about 80 to 120 minutes after sunset.”

“This light can be noticeable and easy to see from latitudes relatively close to Earth’s equator, for example, like those in the southern U.S. To those in rural locations, it’s often visible at this time of year while driving a lonely highway far from city lights, in the hour or so before true dawn begins to light the sky. In that case, the zodiacal light can resemble the lights of a city or town just over the horizon.”

“Meanwhile, skywatchers in the northern U.S. or Canada sometimes say, wistfully, that they’ve never seen it, although in recent years we’ve seen many photographs of the zodiacal light taken from northerly latitudes.”


“You need a dark sky location to see the zodiacal light, someplace where city lights aren’t obscuring the natural lights in the sky. The zodiacal light is a pyramid-shaped glow in the east before dawn (or after twilight ends in the evening, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere now). It’s even “milkier” in appearance than the starlit trail of the summer Milky Way. It’s most visible before dawn at this time of year because, as seen from the Northern Hemisphere, the ecliptic – or path of the sun, moon and planets – stands nearly straight up with respect to the eastern horizon before dawn now. As seen from the Southern Hemisphere, the same is true of the western horizon after true darkness falls.”

“The zodiacal light can be seen for up to an hour or so before true dawn begins to break. Once again, look for it about 120 to 80 minutes before sunrise. Unlike true dawn, though, there’s no rosy color to the zodiacal light. The reddish skies at dawn and dusk are caused by Earth’s atmosphere, and the zodiacal light originates far outside our atmosphere. When you see the zodiacal light, you are looking edgewise into our own solar system. The zodiacal light is actually sunlight reflecting off dust particles that move in the same plane as Earth and the other planets orbiting our sun.”

Get Rid Of Under Eye Circles

“If you want to learn how to get rid of dark under eye circles, you need to find ingredients proven to be effective, and look away from the mainstream big name brands as they never live up to expectations, as you may have found. Here are my tips for the best to take years off your appearance.”

IMG_4073.JPG
“Most eye gels fail to work as they contain so little of any worthwhile ingredient because they’re expensive and far too many harmful chemicals like parabens and mineral oil which harm your skin and health with long term use.

Probably the best ingredient is called Eyeliss™, to reduce any puffiness and reduce those dark circles and bags that give away your age.

In a recent clinical study of Eyeliss™, 65% of volunteers showed a marked reduction in bags under their eyes in just 28 days and 62% showed a significant reduction in wrinkles around their eyes.

The best one to combine with this is called Haloxyl™ as it helps to thicken the under eye skin up as well as reduce those dark circles to help you look younger.”

“Learning how to get rid of dark under eye circles is just a matter of knowing these ingredients in an eye contour gel which may be new to you but only because the niche skin care companies that provide them do not waste money on expensive advertizing but on using the finest ingredients possible.

There are many other excellent ones too which further enhance the anti-aging benefits for your eyes and include Homeo Age, Cynergy TK, Phytessence wakame and active Manuka honey which also deliver many essential nutrients to drench your skin in goodness and boost your overall health too.

Now you know how to get rid of dark under eye circles, you can soon look forward to fading them and looking and feeling younger as well.”

The Dark Secret Of Garfield

Thought Catalog

Garfield 3Garfield 

Let’s get this out of the way. I hate cats. I don’t especially like Garfield comics, but they were around when I was a kid. Garfield was a pop culture phenomenon, apparently, even though its description melts as you speak it. There was a fat orange cat? He was mean and hated ? It went on for book collections, TV shows, movies, and of course, a long-running comic strip. I can’t be bothered to Google exactly how long the strip ran for, but suffice to say it outlasted presidencies, marriages, and lives.

Macabre? Perhaps. But Garfield conquers all.

Except for love.

That’s right, internet. Because Garfield – snarky cat icon – had a deeply hidden love for Jon Arbuckle, his sad-sack owner. Consider, for a moment, the evidence for love that’s hidden in his hate.

1. Garfield Hates Odie

This seems normal, at first glance. Cats hate dogs, dogs…
