The Tea Bag Rocket

I saw this project for the first time about a week ago, but it was only today that we had time to try it ourselves.

It's very simple. Starting with a fresh, dry tea bag, not a used one, cut the top (the stapled part) off the bag and empty out the tea. Open the bag up, so that it forms a tube. set it on a fire-safe surface and light the top edge on fire. Just before the tube has burned down completely, it will shoot up into the air.

Hi guys! Our flight was late, we weren't able to get our registration done. I have the Brit Track welcome scheduled at 10am, but the rest of my day is all over the place. I have a black underskirt with white lace, and a blue taffeta bustle. Black short sleeve shirt and my bodice matches the skirts. Plus I'm half-Korean. If I see you I'll give you a shout!

We aren't there yet. My husband had to work yesterday. We'll be leaving home around 6 a.m. and it will take us about 5 hours to get there. We have reservations at the Sundial restaurant in the Westin at 2 p.m. and then we'll be at the tea duel at 4 p.m. I'm wearing my explorer costume with the pith helmet.
