Battery Life

Quote:
Minnesota teenager Ethan Manuell didn’t expect to make a major medical breakthrough when he was asked to make a science fair project. As he told USA Today, his main concern was getting a good grade. After receiving the assignment from his eighth grade science teacher, Mrs. Omland, Manuell started tinkering. Using materials he had at home—including old battery-operated toy bugs and the batteries from his hearing aid—he discovered a way to extend the lifespan of zinc hearing aid batteries by 85 percent.

Some hearing aid battery packages instruct users to remove the plastic tab on the back of the battery and let it sit for one minute. Manuell further tested this suggestion, allowing the tab-less batteries to sit for various amounts of time before testing their longevity in his vibrating toy bugs. He found that five minutes was the golden length of time needed to achieve maximum results.

The information is shared in doctor’s offices today. By using Manuell’s trick, hearing aid wearers can save an average of $70 a year on batteries.

Now I have to figure out what to piss away that $140 savings on.

A slow woman at this point, or I'd never catch her.

This is a handy bit of knowledge...

This memorable opening theme ran every Saturday morning from 1986-1991.

The vocal bit kicks in at 1:03... after a really nice interlude written by DEVO's Mark Mothersbaugh.

Now, who's the SINGER of that vocal?



Well it's Cyndi Lauper.


I Did Not Know That but it's one of those things where, once you know it.... oh sure! Hell it's so obvious!

IMDB says Chairry was "Alison Mork" who has a bunch of other IMDB credits.

I'm an old crone, I don't do none of that mobile app shit.... but thanks. I thought it was just the new computer the first time, but I'm back on the old one now (where I've never had problems with this sort of stuff before) and still nothing. However, while I wasn't playing with old computer, stupid windows updated to an even stupider version which I had also thought was just new computer, so I'mm'a blame that.

thanks, that worked. How times have changed, that so much time could be wasted on an opening theme! Did kids really have that long an attention span to wait through all of that when they'd seen it a zillion times before? must've been a good show!

I can see the UT's embedded video in Chrome but not in IE. I can see it in chrome and IE at sexo's link.
Kids love the repetitive lead in to the show because it's familiar and they can sing along.

UT's embedded video plays in Chrome but not IE. Sexo's link plays in both.

that was kids of yesteryear.... today's kids like repetition and singalong too, but only for 30 seconds, then it needs to move on. boom boom boom. like their games.
