it be cool to do somthing like led throwies and take 100 of these and throw them into a lake and a few minutes later they all pop up

thefunktopus (author)mman15062009-09-27

might be a bit damaging to fish-100 sugar cubes?

mman1506 (author)thefunktopus2009-09-27

ok then a pool but a lot of food like apples do have large amounts of surgar

thefunktopus (author)mman15062009-09-28

but apples have skins which stps the water entering and dissolving the sugar

mman1506 (author)thefunktopus2009-09-28

but the skin compost and allow the surgar disovle

mman1506 (author)2009-01-06
