    I feel like this should be a standard science experiment in schools.

      @Not Ben they would have a length and width to be in 3D(ignore the tiny length and width on the string), now that theyve been strtch into a string its just a vertical 1D.

    It feels weird that remembered that this is what I draw when I was a little kid before becoming an Animator who animates a "real person" (basically anime and normal animation related stuff) the nostalgia of the stickman I drew that looks like a monster that haven't eaten for eternity instead of ordinary stickman

    "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Usually I imagine a completely different application of silicon when that quote comes to mind. No semi-conductors this time; just dry erase markers, water, and magnets!

    I just realised that you said that the two materials being silicone would stick together. New one on me - silicone will not bond to silicone, that’s why, when re-sealing around, say a splash back, the existing silicone has to be removed and cleaned off before new sealant is applied.
