Hi all!

As I say in the intro to this animation, if you don't know of Dr Crippen or of Cilit Bang then this will be totally lost on your, but... Well, it stops the idea from knocking around in my head, and it's given me something fun to work on for the day:

http://www.matazone.co.uk/animpages/crippen-bang.html

As always, if you like it then please pass it on!

'Til next time, take care and have fun,

Mata

... well, I am not familiar either with Dr Crippen or Cillit Bang, so, as predicted, I simply stared blankly at the screen. Woo!

I do know about both Dr Crippen and Cillit Bang so I laughed like a monkey who had just been informed about a new type of pantaloon

Dr Crippen was a murderer from 1910 (although it's possible that he accidentally gave his wife an overdose). He didn't do a very good job disposing of the body and was caught. It was a major scandal because he was a well educated man and seemed so mild. These were the days before it became obligatory to have an interview with the neighbour of a mass-murderer saying 'he always seemed so normal. He kept himself to himself...'

Cilit Bang is a stain remover with a very crude but effective series of adverts.

I certainly have a brain that goes for niche audiences, don't I?

I know what Cilit Bang is - I have some and it works rather well...

Look what it does to this old penny...

Actually I tried it on an old penny and it made it ever so slightly less dirty, before trying it on a pound... and it took the finish off.

Anyway, I like the animation, although I can only relate to the Cilit Bang part - 'tis an interesting mix of murder and cleaning produce...

If you want to make a penny clean, dunk it in kool-aid and let it sit for about an hour or two. I'm serious!

To my knowledge there was evidence that Crippen didn't actually do it.
Evidence was left out of the trial that actually proved that his wife had moved to America with a lover. Letters written by her, one even arrived at the prison that Crippen was being held at but the gaoler withheld it until later.

It was never actually proved that the remains found were hers....

But then again... *shrugs*

Well, there was the possibility that she was given an overdose by mistake. That's quite a popular theory these days. I hadn't heard that there was doubt about whether the remains were really hers, but that does raise the question of exactly whose recently-dismembered corpse was buried in the basement!

Oh, and try leaving a tooth in a glass of coke and watching as it dissolves away over a few days. It put me off coke for life!

Cilit Bang scares me, don't know why but it very unnerving that something can clean so well (or so they say). It shouldn't be able to be kept in a plastic bottle for extended periods of time without disolving it...

On the subject of coke, the syrup stuff you get for post mix drinks (like the ones you get in fast food places) is like a super concentrated version of coke, reputedly with a pH value of somewhere in the region of 2, I also remember hearing stories of authorties using it to clean dried blood stains off roads after major accidents...fun!

I loved the animation. I thought it was very clever. I did know of the murder, but not the Bang stuff. Just goes to prove I am obsessed with murder mysteries but not cleaning.
However Texas Pete hot sauce will take the brown off a penny. Just thought you may need to know that if you are shinning pennies.

Apparently Cilit Bang does clean pennies, but the day after the sheen goes and there's a weird film on them (a chemical film, not a piece of French surrealist cinema). It's a bit like fairy gold.

I thought it was absolutely hillarious as I knew of both things... You could always also go down the lines of Jack The Ripper and a set of new kitchen knives used for boning. (I'm not sure if there is an e or not. And its not that sort of boning! My brother is a chef and came home from work one day to say that he had just been boning a 30lb fish. I laughed my socks off biggrin.gif

I doubt there'll be any more like this, but my mind does work in odd ways, and it was quite a fun way to distract myself for about ten hours (it really is silly how long even simple things can take to make).

I knew both stories although it took a second for Crippen's name to become associated with the story.

Along the Coke lines: Aparantly the coca cola company uses it to clean the engines of it's trucks. Surprisingly though I can't get enough of the stuff. That and Lipton Ice!

Sues loves coke and Lipton Ice too! How odd. Maybe they've both got a chemical in them that you react to?
