Whatever happened to the Tied Bean? Did Steam N-O ever escape?


I spent a good portion of my childhood making concoctions in paper cups in my bathroom. (Red mouthwash is spectacular for this purpose.) I couldn't begin to tell you what I was trying to create, but I did end up majoring in chemistry...


Yes, Steam-N-O (pronounced "STEEMinoh") got out. I can't remember how, but it made about as much sense as getting tied up in a bean.

Jonah's experiment involved checking on the Dixie cups every morning and night to see if the cotton balls had melted. They hadn't, but the waxed-paper cups had, releasing a bluish lake all over our counter. So after Jonah was in bed, the experiment ended.
