Apparently, there are instructions out there on the internets about how to make a Barbie doll electric chair—like a real one that works and will melt Babs' face. It was some crazy (and when we say "crazy" we mean "awesome") kid's science fair project. So here's what we're gonna do: We're totally making one this weekend, and we're flipping the switch on Barbie. But you guys should do it, too! And send us photos.
My friend and I in high school once hung a barbie from a tree and lit it on fire. Her legs melted right off, but somehow the rest of her was fine. A little charred, but fine.
My friend was bummed, but I was secretly pleased because I was feeling guilty for destroying something I had liked so much as a kid.
