Electric Pickle!!!

So last week in chemistry was the day of the amazing electric pickle. Even my teacher seemed a bit scared of what he was doing so i wouldn't really suggest trying this at home...... or if you do dont blame me if something goes wrong. but anyways it was pretty crazy. he has this electrical wire that he split into the two wires and attached a metal spike on the end of each. he then stuck one spike into each end of the pickle, making sure the tips had some distance between them within the pickle, and then he turned off the lights and plugged the cord in. one side lit up with an orange glow and then the other, alternating back and forth with an electrical sounding buzz. pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt. it was so cool. he turned it off fairly soon just to be safe. some of us ate the bits of the pickle that werent touching metal. some of it tasted normal and some of it tasted a tad burnt but it was still a durn good pickle.

pickle fact

i changed the layout so it's not so obnoxiously bright yellow and green.

Pickles played an important role in Colombus’s discovery of America in 1492. Around the time of Colombus, many transoceanic voyages were thwarted because crews suffered from scurvy, a disease caused by lack of vitamin C. Colombus’s ship stocker, a man named Amerigo Vespucci, stored ample quantities of vitamin C-rich pickles on the Niña, Pinta, and Santa Maria, helping to prevent scurvy outbreaks on the historic voyage across the Atlantic. As it turns out, America’s name is derived from the pickle merchant Vespucci, who became an explorer.

this is a tribute to the chick-fil-a that is now in decatur because of the pickles on chicken sandwiches you can now get whenever you want!
