Lightning Bolt: Who needs steel wool when you have Hypermagic Mountain?
I was washing dishes at home and listening to the noise rock band Lightning Bolt at a moderate volume. I started with the plates because I find those the easiest to clean. I left the frying pan with caked on baked on grease for last. I moved on to the untensils and glasses after the plates. When I was finally ready for the frying pan I was amazed to find that it was clean. How?! The only possibility I could manufacture was that the abrasive aural nature of Lightning Bolt cleaned the frying pan. I am sharing this secret with you... here... now!
Your results may vary... because... this blog was for entertainment purposes only.
While it is true that I do sometimes listen to Lightning Bolt when I clean my dishes I have always had to use old fashioned elbow grease on the frying pans.
If you thought this was a blog about actual lightning bolts from the sky... I apologize.
