Twinkle Toes' First Attempt

Twinkle Toes found an amazing experiment where you take bacteria from the mouths of your participants. Then you have them use different mouthwashes and determine which one kills the most bacteria by growing little bacteria samples of all of these testings.
She was very excited to try it. I began to wonder if the results would be so amazing that I would need to start insisting everyone in the family use mouthwash nightly.

However, no bacteria ever grew. We waited. We watched. Nothing. Finally, Campbell Clansman announced that he had the perfect conclusion to this experiment..."No Campbell has any mouth bacteria." Twinkle Toes decided to switch to another project. (I could have given her samples from my fridge...but oh well.)

Is it me or is this one down right gross . . . I know. I would have been just like you, mouthwash every day!! :)

I remember Kathleen's last science experiment . . . Seeing if raw beef could be dissolved with Coca-Cola . . . How morbid is that?

Okay, a scientist I am not but a fan of all these young people, I am. :)
