Hypothesis: Can baby powder travel faster than the speed of light?
Equipment: One 4 year old boy with an active imagination, one container of Johnson and Johnson's Baby Pure Cornstarch Powder, one playroom approximately 20' x 15'
Procedure: Mema must leave the room just long enough to run upstairs to get TC out of his crib and coo and guffaw good morning at him.
Safety/Risks: Where do I even begin!?!?!?!?!
Results: Disastrous! Imagine walking down the stairs and smelling a strong and yet very familiar smell. Looking up to see the room encased in white smoke clouds. Doing a quick scan of the room and noticing baby powder six feet deep covering every square inch of said room. Every toy, every book, every surface. Feeling your blood pressure rising. 130/80, 145/92, 168/98, 3892/574!
Discussion: Why, for the love of God why?!!?!?!?!
Conclusion: Inconclusive. I'm not sure that baby powder can travel faster than the speed of light, however I do know that baby powder in the hands of a 4 year old can travel faster than a Mema up and down a flight of stairs. I also know that it takes much longer to clean the baby powder out of every flippin nook and cranny in the above mentioned playroom than it did to create the mess in the first place.
Now someone please pass me some Benicar before I have a stroke!
