Before I finish off my Shrek series I had a few more thoughts on adhesives. One being, the fzx behind Post-itÂ® notes. I recreationally collect sassy Post-itÂ® notes. You'd be surprised...but they are always applicable.
Imagine having the printed phrase, "If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?" on hand every second of the day. It's exhilarating. Or something like, "Why yes, I am overqualified." And maybe, "I think you heard me the first time." They're so so so useful, and I highly suggest investing.
Anyways, I've only had a mere use, not quite a reason. WHY do post-it notes work?
I did some research from a website that described life on Earth as, and I quote, "[A] bit like being a giant living Post-itÂ® noteâ€”only with legs!" so I think my information is fairly reliable.
With my collected data, I learned that:
A.) The back of a sticky note contains a continuous film of adhesive as well as microscopic glue bubbles. [These can only be seen with an electron microscope].
B.) These glue bubbles are called microcapsules and they are about ten to one hundred times bigger, but much weaker, than the glue particles on the average and conventional Scotch TapeÂ®.
C.) When pushing a sticky note into place, som of the larger microcapsules cling; just enough to support the weight of the tiny slice of cute yellow paper...hopefully decorated with a sassy phrase.
Well. There you have it folks. Just a quick and simple lesson on one of my quirks as well as as the fzx behind it.
One piece of advice I'd like you to take home with you tonight:
Just remember, that every time you attach and peel off a Post-itÂ® note, dust and dirt attach to the adhesive capsules. Therefore, the notes prgressively and gradually lose their stickiness. Sure, it WILL go on sticking for awhile. Alas, Post-itÂ® notes are a thing to be valued. So don't waste their magic. I mean fzx.
