You've seen thought bubbles in action in comic strips and comic books and other comical environs, but now they can be anywhere you want them to be. So go and unleash the power of the mind.
Free the knowledge!
Step 1: Get Supplies
The big thing here is the nice circular dry erase board. Thoughts are ephemerally effervescent things that need a home or it's just poof! My thoughts need roughly 10 inches or so so I bought a 11" board. You can even fit a couple thoughts in there if you're careful and efficient.
Of course the thoughts require ink to appear. Some recommend the condensed nature of your ancestors, but I prefer dry erase markers. These new ones even have a little afro/eraser on the tip. Is this new? It's not like I buy dry erase markers that often so maybe this is old news. I'm not that kinda guy, right?
Thoughts need some structure and either some scrap wire or clothes hangers will be good enough.
No structure is complete without the most powerful glue on the planet, duct tape.
To provide some direction for your thought finder you'll need a stick. I have some bamboo that I scavenged and it worked great.
Some electrical tape is a help, but this has no effect on the thoughts or their surprising effect on your unprepared psyche. Watch out, this is some serious Jungian stuff.
Step 2: Make Support Bubbles
I'd say a bad one.
So cut some smaller bubbles out of the white ether that floats through your home and fix them in place on a couple pieces of wire with that wondrous substance, duct tape.
If you want the bubbles to have some extra dignity, wrap some of the wire with electrical tape. It's so ninja-style with its blackness.
Step 3: Duct Tape Is Your Friend
While you're at it, cover more of the back of the board with duct tape. This gives you more areas to place the thought bubbles as they will stick a little too well to the cardboard and you won't be able to reposition them.
Step 4: Attach Thought Bubbles
No, it's more duct tape. Go at it.
Step 5: Record Those Thoughts!
You are now a thought hunter. You can even use caps and put it on a business card. You are a Thought Hunter!
Go and catch some thoughts!
Step 6: Say Stuff!
Don't these guys know that all we do on the west coast is chill? Dude, come on.
And what's with all the shouting? I'm like two feet from you. I can hear you.
