Science For Juggalos
It has come to our attention that the fans of the band "The Insane Clown Posse" (Juggalos) lack basic scientific understanding on subjects like magnetism, light, and nature. Fortunately, several of these Juggalos will be outside the Warfield Theater on June 5th, 2010, and we feel this is the perfect opportunity to resolve their ignorance.
To that end, we will be setting up a Science Fair outside the Warfield between 6pm-8pm to demonstrate several of the scientific principles which seem to cause the Juggalos such confusion.
There are several ways to participate in this event. Just add yourself as a volunteer to any section you'd like. No matter which you choose, please arrive at NoiseBridge at 4pm this Saturday, June 5th. There will be punch and pie.
If you would like to teach science to Juggalos, please prepare a hand-held scientific demonstration based on any of the subjects from the ICP song 'Miracles'. We will be hosting a planning meeting to discuss our science fair projects at 7pm on Wednesday, June 2nd, at Noisebridge. You don't have to come to the planning meeting to participate, just show up on Saturday.
We will be providing the following equipment for scientists:
- Borrowed Lab Coats (for mad science)
- Safety Goggles
- Poster Board + Markers
- Bob Dole
Lab assistants (i.e. help prep, but not appear as scientist at the event):
If you don't want to teach, but still want to participate in this event, please bring a camera and help document our endeavor.
Several Juggalos don't want to talk to a scientist. They feel we be lyin, and gettin them pissed. For this reason, we would like a couple of volunteers to act as security for our scientists and documentarians.

- Niagra Falls
- Milky Way
- Shooting Stars
- I can take this one. However, it might be better if we had a more focused presentation on magnets, but with some ancillary experts on topics that Juggalos may be interested in. Flipzagging 17:08, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
- This is the one I've sat an thought about presentation ideas for. Really depends on how deep one wants to go - Huygens-Fresnel and wavefronts bending will need to be around if we wanna dig down, but the basic idea I've been thinking about is "Light bends when it slows down. Different materials let light go at different speeds. It all depends on wavelengths, and thus on color. Look here - a prism and a white LED keychain." Michiexile 02:10, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
