School assighnment

  1. Nov 5, 2007 #1
    hi I have a school assighnment where I hace to ask other people questions about what I'm doing in my course right now so here it is.

    I know this has nothing to do with physics or math but my question's are.......

    What kind of a chemical reaction happens in your house on regular basis?

    What do you think the world would be like if we never invented plastic?

    I hope you enjoyed the questions and have fun answering them thanks.:smile:

    Since this is more of a survey for completing your assignment rather than a request for homework help, I've moved this thread to General Discussion where it's more likely to get a wider range of responses.

    The first:

    In my house, baking, in my sisters house, burning.

    The second:

    Much less plasticky.

    Who knows? I don't think it would be right to just think "oh crap, half the stuff sitting in front of me is gone, what will IV bags and plastic wrap be made of? We might be much less advanced, we might have a substitute for every place plastic would be, or we might even be more advanced because we didn't put so much effort into inventing plastic!
