    I think that it is the static in the sky and lighting is about to strike her. ( PS. I don’t literally mean it just for the experiment on Bad Hair Day)

    • Alaura (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

    • Lydia (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

      i think it is the static electricity conducted from the metal orb at the museum. by touching it, it makes her hair stick up. it is quite ELECTRIFYING!!!!

    it was a ballon that she rubed on her head

    • Logan (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

      well, the ballon would have to have been rubbed very long and the ballon must be close enough to keep the static energy link. ;D

  20. jasmine (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

    • Logan (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

      :D maybe depending on the size of the field of the electricity

  23. Alex (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

    this happens with static electricity if you have long hair, but with short hair the item with electricity with it will stck to you without falling :D

    • Logan (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

      Yeah thats true because the more hair, the more positive adams and that means more negative adams would be able to combine to create a link of static electricity.

  24. Anna (Reply) on Wednesday 16, 2013

    Hi Idaearyah. I’m smiling because you are thinking about whether or not it is nice to post this. Rest assured, this was a volunteer in a science lab who knows her hair is a little wacky because of the electricity flying through it. We will never make fun of people on this site and I’m glad you are watching out for rude behavior!
