Filed under: Life Savers, Week 10: Questions

I was really having a hard time coming up with something for my last post this week. I find our directive of “Questions” to be incredibly hard, because there are so many things one could ask, and then so many ways one could portray the question. I finally decided to reach out for inspiration. After thinking about this all day, I decided to turn to my favorite commercials right now—which are the Geico Rhetorical Question Commercials. I’m sure you all have seen these and they range from everything from the Little Piggy crying wee-wee-wee all the way to Abraham Lincoln being “Honest Abe.”

This took about 2 hours to make and I created everything via Illustrator, Photoshop, and Comic Life. The only thing I can not take credit for is the picture of the guy from the Geico Commercials.


42. Question: Do Sparks Fly?

Question: Why do Wint-O-Green Life Savers produce a Spark in the Dark?

***I would just like to state that I did NOT create this video.***
I found this video on youTube after experimenting. I decided to find something online, because I thought it would be too hard to capture it on film.

Early this evening, I was searching the internet for interesting questions about Life Savers and came across the fact that Wint-O-Green Life Saver Mints create a spark when biting them at the right angle and force. At first, I thought this was crazy, but then I experimented with one in my bathroom and found it to be true. This is due to effect known as, triboluminescence, which is similar to the electrical charge build-up that produces lightning, only much less grand.

For a really great explanation, check out this cool website.

40. Question: Guess Who?

As a child, my favorite board game to play with my brother was Guess Who? Since this week’s directive is “Questions,” I couldn’t think of a better way to display this because the whole point of the game is to ask questions about the other person’s character of the card they drew from a scrabbled deck. Each player has a board of the same characters in front of them and with each question, you eliminate the possibility of the character your opponent does not have.
