No one had been injured…that was important to remember. As hindsight with spectacular telescopic vision showed, the procedure was not smooth in its execution.
Science Fair Booth 206 wanted to create floating incandescent orbs by using plasma globes with various neon gases within, connected to stacks of framed sheets of copper. Then five car batteries would be connected, the switch thrown, and Bob's your uncle.
Many scientific safety protocols and principles were not applied here. Booths 206 through 210 were not occupied at the time.
Thanks go to Delores at Under the Porch Light for challenging writers to create poems, prose, fiction, etc. Each week Delores provides six unrelated words with which to create something comprehensible, or not. The above underlined words above are the words provided. Please click on the freezing cardinals in the right sidebar to access her site. Interesting stuff, there.
