One of the most important exports of Gifville is gas for the generation of massive belly burps. To increase productivity, scientists at the Gifville Burpee Gas Research Institute developed a purple liquid replete with oxygen and methane, which they hope will make drinkers exceptionally gassy and ready to blow.
We all have standards of ugliness and beauty, defined by our tastes and the society. We often focus on the appearances, forgetting that being pretty inside is even more important than being beautiful outside.
In this cool science experiment, an anvil weighing 50 lbs. (23 kg.) floats quite easily in a tub of mercury in its room temperature, liquid state. No matter how hard the demonstrator tries, the anvil refuses to sink beneath the silvery waves. Jawdropping.
Material scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a technique to print three-dimensional structures made entirely of liquids. Using a modified 3-D printer, they inject streams of surfactant-sheathed water into silicone oil to form tubes of liquid within another liquid. The threads of water have been printed with diameters ranging between 10µm to 1mm with a variety of spiralling and branching structures. The researchers hope to use the technique to construct liquid electronics, perform molecular separation, or precisely deliver components to more complex structures.
