Scary Science?


The mask I wore to two Halloween parties last night. (Click for larger view.) I got the raw mask at a costume shop and then built some interior support into it to have it sit over my glasses without pressing on them uncomfortably… Then I inked and painted some symbols on it. The idea? People often get scared when I mention science or being a scientist at a party anyway**, so why not go with the flow, for a change? So put some science right on the face, and watch ‘em run screaming…

I’m pretty sure not a soul got the joke except me. Oh well, it was a fun evening anyway…

**They usually immediately start saying how much they hated science at school…. etc. On the other hand, there also many cases of quite the opposite – people being really excited to talk about science, and even if they hated it at school they got really interested later on through books, tv, etc…
