260: The Glass Necklace
|The Glass Necklace|
Title text: Well, for some value of 'actually work'.
The heat from a lightning strike can fuse sand into glass. When this occurs in nature hollow tubes called fulgurites are formed. Cueball uses this knowledge and a spark of handiness and ingenuity to create an entirely home made glass necklace for Megan. Here is some inspiration to do it yourself.
- [Cueball draws a diagram of a cylinder with electrical terminals on either end.]
- [Cueball is shown at a workbench making the device in a workshop.]
- [Cueball kneels down on a beach and scoops up sand.]
- [Cueball pours the sand into the cylinder.]
- [Cueball ties a spool of string to one end of the cylinder, and ties a deflated weather balloon to the other end.]
- [The weather balloon is inflated, and raised up into the clouds as thunder rumbles.]
- [The end of the string is tied to a stake in the ground, and lightning is flashing in the background.]
- [Lightning hits the balloon, travels through the cylinder, and fuses it's contents.]
- [Cueball follows the string to find the cylinder.]
- [Cueball detaches it, opens it, removes a solidified piece, and admires the piece.]
- [Cueball takes the stone to a jeweller.]
- [White Hat examines, grinds, and sets the now-shining stone in a necklace.]
- [Cueball approves of the final result.]
- [Cueball gives it to Megan.]
