Well, scientists have come up with an invention where it just glides out. Watch. It's not just for ketchup. It can work for toothpaste, make-up, hand cream, even glue. Here at MIT, they've developed this clever new technology. What I have here is our patented of super-slippery coating technology. Wow.

When it comes to branded words, there isnt an exact formula to explain why some brands become “verbified” and others dont. For example, why has Super Glue been “verbified,” but Gorilla Glue hasnt? Lots of brands have cracked the code for becoming a household name (or verb), and we’re diving into how we think a few technology brands accomplished it in this blog post. Four Brands That Replaced Product Names 1) YouTube What it Replaced: Video streaming website YouTube replaced phrases like “search for a video” or “watch a video online.” Used in a Sentence: “You should YouTube the latest Saturday Night Live monologue, Kate McKinnon was hilarious in it.” Why it Caught on: A huge part of YouTube’s widespread popularity is its first-mover advantage -- it was one of the first video hosting sites ever founded, and after Google purchased it in 2006, it started growing rapidly.

For example, liquid latex, polymorph plastic, wax, silicone, fake blood, and more. “Plenty of items are either expensive or difficult to get in Malaysia. Hence, I usually DIY because there are creative alternatives. Say, instead of using polymorph plastic to make fake teeth, I use cotton, aluminium foil and a hot glue gun,” divulged Hammada. Similarly, Neb makes fake blood using mouthwash, food colouring and cocoa powder. Due to its affordability and ease, the three of them strongly advocates for one to DIY. Eclipsing normality Besides their love for SFX, Asmawati, Neb and Hammada also share another similarity: they are all self-taught SFX artists. Through the wonders of technology, they learnt their skills via YouTube then improved through trials and errors. Despite the incredible SFX looks that Hammada has created thus far, he is actually a novice.

On the body: I lack the basic DIY chops to fashion these panties together in an attractive way, as the underwear is coated with roughly 8 trillion sugar granules. No more than 90 seconds after walking around my apartment in my new outfit did things go terribly wrong. The glue holding together the lace, strings, and candy malfunctioned. And my crotchless panties turned into a papaya-colored loin cloth dripping sugar all over the floor. On the tongue: As soon as I opened the packaging, I was hit with a sickly sweet, chemical-esque watermelon smell. No surprise that the gummy panties didnt taste great, although the flavor was better than the smell would suggest. Verdict: Skip. Unless you dont mind getting sugar all over your sheets. 3. Female Edible Undies (Passion Fruit) Party Accessory First impression: It looks like a female anatomy diagram in hot pink.

This is the one part of the design that gives me pause; if the high voltage ever works its way into the low-voltage wires, the ESP-14 on the outside of the box might become hot. I separated everything with as much air-gap as I could, and applied liberal amounts of hot glue to keep it all in place. Still, I'll treat this thing with respect when I have to handle it. As it stands, it's tucked away behind the washer anyway. Since the signal from the current transformers is (low-voltage) AC, and symmetric about ground, a capacitor and voltage divider put the offset back into a reasonable range for the STM8's ADC. I did this on the same PCB as the high-voltage circuitry, but in retrospect I could have done all of the low-voltage signal processing outside of the box. The PCB was a convenient module for testing on the bench with some lightbulbs and my oscilloscope during the transformer-prototyping phase.

Traveling Beyond the Veil So what is the experience we get when we go beyond the Veil? Already in August of 2012 Cobra gave us a taste of what this might be like. He then had to wait another 18 months to have his very own trip beyond the Veil. Friday, August 10, 2012 Beyond the Veil Beyond the Veil, beyond the confines of quarantine Earth, there is a totally different reality, a totally different universe. If you climb above the tachyonic membrane that exists 8.6 miles above the surface of this planet, you enter a universe of Love. The experience on this planet has taught you that life can be mean and cruel. Most of us have accepted this as an underlying basis of our reality, learning not to trust other beings but fear them instead. This premise is the basis that the Cabal is operating from. It is the glue that keeps their reality together and keeps us enslaved into it.

"First of all, they are top-class, not just by the league table," said Dyche. "Pockets of their play are excellent and you can use it as a guideline to see we have moved forward. "The team looks more assured. You are playing against the top end of the market. The mentality as well, we have plenty of that glue to hold a team together." Dyche paid tribute to Brady, who also scored against Conte the last time he faced the Chelsea manager, when he was playing for Ireland against Conte's Italy at last year's European Championship in France. "It was a sublime free-kick against a top-class goalkeeper, a giant of a man," said Dyche in reference to Chelsea number one Thibaut Courtois. "To find that area of the goal was fantastic. To get put into that game was not easy for him. "He's just signed for a new club, he's getting a feel for how the team works, but he held his own in a really tough game." — AFP

The Grammys are finally relevant because they have a human ball pit on the red carpet. This is not the awards show play it safe, especially if you're relatively unknown and competing with Rihanna. So the only answer is to glue relics from your childhood to a gown and smile. Girl Crush Image: Jim Smeal/Shutterstock Girl Crush, who apparently is a human and not that "Little Big Town" song, took a pit stop on the way to the Grammys, spilled a McFlurry on herself and then jumped in the McPlayplace.

Fair enough. But even if they lack Dylan's sheer linguistic display, might one ask if Cash's lyrics possess the verbal resonance, lapidary phrasing, and suggestive imagery we find in great poetry? In Don't Make a Movie About Me," Cash warns, "If you don't know my tune you can't get it right," and everything about Forever Words suggests that one needs to know the tune, to be invested in Cash's music in order to be moved by his writings. As his son John Carter Cash admits in the foreword, "When I hold these papers, I feel his presence within the handwriting." The handwriting, not the writing itself. That's not to say there aren't moments of genuine poetry here. At his best, Cash reads like a down-home Renaissance lyricist, as in "Chinky Pin Hill", with its echoes of Christopher Marlowe's famous invitation, "Come live with me and be my love / And we will all the pleasures prove": Come along with me and we Will get away from it all We'll go through the mountains past The shining waterfall John Donne might have chuckled at the mordant humor that emerges in "I Wish You a Merry Christmas" through a series of curses for one who broke the speaker's heart: "I wish that you had choked on the glue / Of the goodbye letter you wrote" and "I hope you'll be committed / On the dawn that Christmas breaks.

Another innovation was hinges for the control surfaces like the rudder, ailerons, and flaps. Unsatisfied with plastic hinges, [Martin] made his own nearly-frictionless and nearly-weightless ones complete with re-centering springs. Each weighs 1.6 milligrams. Control surface hinge design [Source: Warbirds at 1:100 Scale by Martin Newell] The hinges on the left are made from 0.008 nickel wire and a 1 mm length of 0.4 mm plastic tube. The centering spring is a nylon bristle from a paintbrush, which [Martin] observed was pointed on one end and seemed quite springy. The tip of a single bristle is inserted into the model and by adjusting how far it is inserted, the amount of maximum deflection the control surface is allowed can be controlled. Once satisfactory, it is secured with a tiny bead of glue. A sample micro actuator. They get even smaller.

Kilns also use steam to lower this shock and keep the fibers more pliable. Take that same tortilla but wrap it in a wet paper towel then bake it. You will get a warm, but more flexible tortilla. (Anybody getting hungry yet?) Air-dried wood does not rely on heat to force evaporation, so the fibers do not harden and they retain their natural pliability. The woods that are the strongest and handle dynamic forces best are ones that are air-dried regardless of species. Sawing Goes Against the Grain Sawing by its very nature cuts the wood fibers and rarely follows the natural grain. When you cut across the wood fibers you weaken the wood dramatically. Riving the wood splits it along the grain and exploits the natural weakness between the fibers while leaving long, continuous strands of wood fiber which are ridiculously strong. A board comprised of a bunch of short fibers relies entirely on the "glue" between the fibers to hold it together.

XKCD 936 , the comic that introduced the phrase, correct horse battery staple' into both the lexicon and password dictionaries, is the best way to generate a password. Your passwords should be random phrases of random words, hopefully with a few random numbers or symbols sprinkled about. It's the most entropy you can get that's also easy to remember. However, generating your own correct horse' password is generally a bad idea. Humans are terrible at coming up with random bits of information. Thankfully, the EFF has come up with a wordlist containing 7,776 random words (6 5 , or five rolls of a six-sided die.) ready for the next time you reset a password. [m145mcc] thought the EFF's word list should be a book, so he made it a book . With the clever application of a laser printer, glue, thread, and some card stock, [m145mcc] has a handy password generator that fits in his pocket.

This month Ikea released their KUNGSBACKA line of cabinet faces, which are made from 100% recycled materials. Interestingly, they're using a blend of both post-manufacturing and post-consumer waste: The particleboard is made from factory-environment wood cut-offs as well as old broken pieces of furniture, and what Ikea refers to as the "foil"—the melamine-like veneer—is produced from plastic bottles harvested in Japan. A lot of people have picked up on the KUNGSBACKA story, but I noticed that no one (including Ikea, in their publicity materials) has mentioned what kind of glue they use. For those of you unfamiliar with manufacturing, wood glue is used both to bind the components of particle board together during its production process and subsequently to adhere laminates or veneers to it. This glue can contain formaldehyde, which offgases into the air.
