Any ideas?

Unread postby birdi_gurlie » Sun May 31, 2009 1:53 am

For a school project, my group is testing which lubricant works best on a slip n' slide...Dawn dish soap, Suave conditioner, and baby oil....versus water.

Sooo...basically, we're greasing up a slip n' slide and slingshotting a babydoll down it and measureing the distance :D :yes:
lol.

Any ideas for a snazzy title?

So far, the best idea is "Slip and SLIDE!: which lubricant statistically works best on a waterslide".

I used "Slip and SLIDE!"
I edited the slip n' slide logo on photoshop.

Haha, oh, we did...but we had to have the rate constant. As it turns out, you travel statistically shorter when you use Dawn soap on the slide.

Makes sense... Dawn "gets grease out of your way", hence less "slipperiness"...
