Dr. Carlson!!

It's Ethan from good ol' Bigelow. I'm a junior now. These videos are great! Haha, now I don't need to go to science class anymore now that I've discovered your website

Yep, the paint is heat sensitive.

Good luck on the college apps. A friend was reading a book the other day that explained how it is acutally easier to get into Caltech for qualified applicants than the Ivy leagues.

This is because so many people attending Ivy league colleges get in as "exceptions" for either being famous, kids of alumni, kids of donors, or even just good at sports that only well-to-do folks would be able to be good at. (Go ahead and explain how a polo scholarship to an Ivy league school isn't slightly biased towards well-to-do students...)
