Mr. Wizard

(Due to a nasty infection in my leg which led to a five day hospitalization and weeks on the couch,this post is quite overdue and was first created on 6-12-07)

Anyone remember a shows called Mr. Wizard's World? I found out that Mr. Wizard (on Nickelodeonm) died. I used to love watching his show, doing all sorts of cool science experiments. He even had children on his show to do them with him. They asked questions and hypothesized what would happen in each experiment. I had forgotten about this show until today and cant even remember why I stopped watching.

Writing this post reminds me of growing up, I asked mom and dad for a chemistry set. I don't remember doing a lot of experiements (especially the examples) but the one thing I do remember is mixing together some liquid chmicals and it making a powdery substance that was different colors depending on what you added.

Science and math were alwasy subjects I seemed to struggle with, but never the less, I still had fun with doing the experiments in classes and at home.
