Um, I invented Post-Its, or: Thursday Inspiration


Christie: So, Michele! What are you up to?
Michele: Oh, okay. Um, I invented Post-Its.
Christie: No offense, Michele, but how in the world did *you* think of Post-Its?
Michele: Uh…
[looks across the room at Romy talking to Billy Christianson]
Romy: And I thought of them completely by myself. I mean, all Michele did was say: “What about making them yellow?”
Michele: [turns to the A Group] Actually I invented a special kind of glue.
Christie: Oh really? Well then I’m sure you wouldn’t mind giving us a detailed account of exactly how you concocted this miracle glue, would you?
Michele: No. Um, well, ordinarily when you make glue first you need to thermoset your resin and then after it cools you have to mix in an epoxide, which is really just a fancy-schmancy name for any simple oxygenated adhesive, right? And then I thought maybe, just maybe, you could raise the viscosity by adding a complex glucose derivative during the emulsification process and it turns out I was right.


Ok, that excerpt from Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion was not really today’s inspiration, but THIS VIDEO is! I stumbled upon it via Twitter. Isn’t Twitter amazing, people? So powerful. Anyway, this stop-motion video was made by Bang-yao Liu, a student at Savannah College of Art and Design. Enjoy!
