I learned in another thread in another place from someone who quoted Wikipedia and this was confirmed by Vandy who I respect immensely though what could he know personally about such things, the following:

"Silly Putty is composed of 65% Dimethyl Siloxane (hydroxy-terminated polymers with boric acid), 17% Silica, quartz crystalline, 9% Thixotrol ST, 4% Polydimethylsiloxane, 1% Decamethyl cyclopentasiloxane, 1% Glycerine, and 1% Titanium Dioxide."

They don't have Silly Putty in Germany. Do they have it in Old Zealand? What is the point of silly putty, anyway?

And do any of you know my mother?

It bounces.

And you can take prints from newspapers and comics with it.

Have you lost your mum?

Is Silly Putty just Play Dough?

I'm the hiphopapotamus, my rhymes are bottomless, sounds a little preposterous, spewing from my esophagus.
But, my ryhmes are so potent that during this small segment, I've made all the women in the last three threads pregnant.

Silly putty is used by people who can't make bottom noises. You can push your finger into a container of silly putty and it makes smell noises.

No.

Silly Putty is composed of 65% Dimethyl Siloxane (hydroxy-terminated polymers with boric acid), 17% Silica, quartz crystalline, 9% Thixotrol ST, 4% Polydimethylsiloxane, 1% Decamethyl cyclopentasiloxane, 1% Glycerine, and 1% Titanium Dioxide.

Play Dough is...well...let's check Wikipedia:

"Its exact makeup is a trade secret, but it is primarily a mixture of wheat flour, water, deodorized kerosene or another petroleum distillate (which provides the smooth texture), salt, a drying agent such as borax (which deters mold), an alum-based hardening agent, and colorings and perfume."

Fauna, do you know my mother?

Silly putty is pink and sorta stiff , er, ummmm. yeah.


It isn't like slime that makes "bottom noises", it was inviented by NASA I think or something like that. It is like a loose rubber.

After you make a contact print from a newspaper, you can stretch and distort the images. It also breaks when you pull it quickly and bounces when rolled into a ball.

Have you noticed that newspaper ink doesn't come off in your hands the way it used to? Bad thing is it doesn't come off in silly putty the way it used to either.

Bummer.

Similarities between Silly Putty and Play-Doh...

1) a five year old kid can screw up your carpet with either one of them.

2) both make wonderful Christmas or birthday gifts for the kids of people you can't stand.

3) both are more fun when not in your mouth.

4) both were failed attempts at something useful, and hence became children's toys.

What's actually kind of neat is placing a coin on top of a blob of silly putty and then leaving it alone for a few days. It should be more or less obvious to you what happens, but I still think it is kind of neat.

Silly Putty was developed so that geometers could understand topology.

Way more than any one would want to know about Silly Putty can be found by attending the Silly Putty University - http://www.sillyputty.com/ where you can earn your "Master of Silly Putty degree."

Now there's something to add to the ole resume!
