You're looking at the wrong web site; the only PuTTY we know about here is the name of a computer program. If you want the kind of putty you can buy as an executive toy, the PuTTY team can personally recommend Thinking Putty, which you can buy from Crazy Aaron's Putty World, at www.puttyworld.com.
Silly Putty is made primarily from silicone and color pigments. Silly Putty was discovered in 1943 by James Wright who mixed boric acid and silicone oil together. Colors are also added to Silly Putty to create a broad array of fun shades. The combination creates a "solid liquid" which can be molded, stretched and bounced.
There are a zillion uses for Silly Putty, 101 of which were humorously cataloged by author Linda Sunshine in her book, "101 Uses for Silly Putty." Some of those uses include: Cleaning typewriter and computer keys; plugging leaks; removing lint from clothing; leveling the leg of a wobbly table; helping smokers kick the habit; as a stress reliever; and as a forearm strengthener.

A man-eating flowering plant from the deepest, darkest jungles of the Amazon...only kidding. Silly Putty was discovered in 1943 by scientist James Wright, who was working on a synthetic rubber substitute for General Electric during World War II. While the mixture of silicone oil and boric acid was a dud as a rubber substitute, the substance did have some unique properties. Wright found that it could be molded, stretched and bounced.
Prominent physicists and basement experimenters have been pondering over this one for years. Several treatises have been written on the subject, highlighting the super bouncing properties of Silly Putty. How high it bounces depends on how high you drop it from, the surface you're bouncing off of, and the size and shape of your Silly Putty piece. Our scientists have done no conclusive testing on Silly Putty's bouncability.
Well, we can try. Maybe it's because it comes in an egg (see above) or in a bunch of cool colors. It's been around since your parents were kids, and we all had one when we were kids (many of us still do!). It's part of our collective consciousness, like the Slinky, the yo-yo, the 64 box of Crayola crayons, the Barbie doll, the GI Joe, the Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars. Most importantly, though, even after 50 years, it's still a ton of fun.
Today, Silly Putty is available in its original pinkish color, a brighter pink, blue, yellow, and orange; four glow-in-the dark colors (green, pink, yellow and blue); three changeable colors (purple to pink, orange to yellow and forest green to bright green); and, for its 50th Anniversary, Silly Putty is available for the first time in commemorative metallic gold.
You know, we're a little cloudy on that, too. Some say its because the egg shape provides the ultimate package for this unique liquid solid. Others believed Peter Hodgson, the marketing mastermind behind Silly Putty did his most creative thinking over scrambled eggs and bacon. Still others say its because, well, eggs are kind of silly in their own right...
Here's the scientific skinny on color-changing Silly Putty: "Silly Putty uses thermochromic (a big word for color change through temperature change) to change color. Changeable Silly Putty is formulated with a base color, to which an additional thermochromic dye is added. When the putty is handled, body heat causes a chemical reaction that makes the thermochromic dye disappear, leaving only the base color.

No, not if you don’t want to. Any Hypnotherapist will not make you do anything you would not normally do apart from facilitate positive change. This area of Hypnosis is left for Stage Hypnotists.
These protocols are all used to run a remote session on a computer, over a network. PuTTY implements the client end of that session: the end at which the session is displayed, rather than the end at which it runs. In really simple terms: you run PuTTY on a Windows machine, and tell it to connect to (for example) a Unix machine. PuTTY opens a window.

What silly clothes? Oh, you don't like the breeches? You can train in track-pants if you like, but you will have to wear a protective jacket and mask. Breeches are only required for higher-level competitions, and really, you do get used to them.

No phobia, fear or anxiety is silly. Almost certainly our well trained hypnotherapists will have seen it before and will be able to deal with it. No worry is silly if it is affecting your life and it is worth doing something about it.
