Let me share a middle school story…

“Growing up in North Alabama, middle schoolers frequently took field trip to one of the many nearby mountain caverns. On my first visit to one such cave, I was mesmerized by the various formations located inside. The stalactites and stalagmites inside were particularly fascinating to me as a middle schooler. When it came time for the annual science fair there was no question as to what my presentation would be. I planned to use wax from lit candles to demonstrate how the water dripping through the limestone caused formations from the ceiling of the cave that eventually met up with the same deposits on the bottom of the cave forming a stone-like column. I did the experiment at home the night before and it worked perfectly! The next day at the science fair I set my experiment up with brand new candles and lit them only to discover that I had accidentally purchased drip-less candles! The pride that I’d experienced the night before was quickly replaced by my total embarrassment in front of the judges.”
