Unfortunately it turns out we've all been had. Last week, researchers in Germany somewhere decided to actually test the "opposites attract" theory. Surprisingly, or rather not so surprisingly, materials with similar charges wanted to hang out instead of the other way around, which they all agree in hindsight, made no sense.
The reason for this deception by the scientific community dates back to the coining of the phrase "opposites attract". Scientists of the time wanted a pick up line they could use on the hot cheerleader types in a time before science was considered "cool". They went so far as making sure magnets were always painted in such a way to support their claims. Now that science and even dorkiness is cool, the phrase and its false scientific backing can be abandoned.
"We hope that the public can forgive us and we can all move past this. We came up with this theory in a rather lonely time for scientists, but we feel we've grown past the need for it now," said Danny Carlton, King of Science.
It remains to be seen what effect this will have on those cartoony U shaped magnets.
Animation: I finished up the music video for the Happy Horse Band! The final version of it got okayed yesterday. They're super happy with it, as am I. Once they post it, I'll share it here on the website. I think you'll like the song and the video.
Film: May have run into a bit of a snag on Two Lunatics concerning crew, but I have hopes that it will all come together in the end. Did get some essential props put together so that's just about all set.
Comic: I thought I was all done making comics for a while, but my good buddy D.B. Rouse is putting out a new album in a couple months and he wants a comic to go with it. So I've started working on that. It'll be black and white and loosely follow characters in the album.
That's what I got.
