Look! Birds!

Current mood: happy

At my university centre today, a group from the WildLife Haven were advertising their volunteer program. They brought birds!




I might consider volunteering. Animals always fascinate me.

What animal is this?

Current mood: intrigued

Happy December 1st, 2011! Last month of the year. Damn, that was fast

I found a peculiar animal taking a snooze this morning. Do you have any idea what it is? Check out the photo:

As you can see, it's that white blob in the photo (that shadow belongs to me ). Got any ideas on what it is? It shouldn't be too hard. Good luck!

An Interesting Guitar String Substitute

Current mood: weird

Ello!

Usual day, usual boredom . I'm casually playing my acoustic guitar (nylon strings FTW) when suddenly...


!!!

My D
(4th) string snaps in two and I have no replacement strings. We all can agree that this is the worst feeling in the world. My guitar looks so bare without the string:


D string missing :(

The only way I would get a replacement string is if I could cough up five bucks and drive for about 45 minutes (got no guitar stores close to where I live ). I wasn't feeling up for the trip, and there was a heavy thunderstorm so I didn't bother. I kept trying to jam out but without the string, but I just didn't get the same feeling I usually get when playing .


After a lot of pondering, I thought about the possibility of replacing the string with this:


Dental floss

What was I thinking, you ask? Well to be honest, I wasn't thinking. I was desperate. So I cut myself a long piece of floss and applied it to my guitar like I would a normal guitar string. To my shock, I was able to tighten the floss to the point where plucking it actually produced an audible sound! 


ZOMG!

The floss didn't show any signs of strain. I was (and still am) actually able to play some songs on it and even play natural/artificial harmonics on the floss string! The only downside to it was that to keep the floss from slacking, I had to tighten it quite a bit which would result in a very high pitch sound being produced from it when it was plucked. Also, the string went slack quite often on it's own. But still, a floss guitar string!

So if you're ever missing a guitar string and you have no replacements, could you use dental floss as a substitute? Yes, you can. Consider this myth confirmed.
