    soap and cereal questions.

    I Was making breakfast the other day, and it dawned on me, if cereal is meant to be better for you than biscuits, then why do biscuits go stale if left in an open container and cereal doesn't, for months!!!
    And then while I was being thoughtful I wondered, if, when you have a bath, does soap clean as well if you are under the water level or if you're wet but above the water????

    Well Tiffany...that's a lot of pondering I'm going to have do to come up with any sort of a response. And that much pondering is going to take a fair amount of beer...and as it's only 10:19am (and I'm not Toutouche), that'll have to wait until later today (like after 11:00am). So I probably won't be able to respond until tomorrow - if I don't forget what I came up with.
    Keep passing the open windows!

    what kind of cereal are you talking about? mine goes stale rather quickly! as for the soap question, I would think that above water is better as the soap has longer contact time on your skin therefore more time to lift the oil residues/dirt.........now go to bed, you study better after some sleep!!
    thanks.

    Tiff,
    Perhaps your cereal is already stale to begin with and you simply don't know what a "fresh" cereal tastes like?!!! Cereals that I know of, also go stale if left opened.
    As for th soap thing, well..., if you need a lab assistant to help you do some experimenting, give me a call...
