James' Soap Bubbles,
Slime, & More Page

I created this page as a diversion from finals almost three years ago. Since then, I've had some interesting mail. I can't believe such a small page, consisting entirely of links, could have such an impact, but then, it's not the page, it's the bubbles. Bubbles are a wonderful diversion (and stress therapy) from real life. I started this form of stress therapy as a sophomore in undergrad when my roommate and I would blow bubbles off the balcony in our dorm at Trinity University. The bubbles would drift out over the stadium and surprise joggers who didn't know that bubbles were coming from above the cliff overlooking the stadium. We considered it a great way to meet women, as there was a walkway between our balcony and the cliff. Unfortunately, I think they all thought that we were a little to weird (you know, the big kid syndrome...).

I was always curious about how bubbles worked and how to make homemade solutions, so I started doing a bit of research on the Internet and found lots of pages dedicated to the subject.

Later, I also became interested in homemade slime and other fun things. Hence, this page has grown from more than a mere page with a few links to other bubble pages, though that is still its primary purpose. I hope that you have fun with it!
