  Robert B. Fredricksen I think even if we had a matter/anti-matter powered device that could seperate matter at the sub-atomic level all bets are off. I think it would be easier to just re-dye the play dough.

  Dan Bressler Right after we can unscramble an egg.

  Shane Fahrnow I have no answer to this. All I know is that when I smell Play-Doh, I want to eat it.

  AmyBeth Fredricksen Still?

  Shane Fahrnow If nothing else, I can serve as a bad example.
