Burple oxide

 

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.

Metal floats on metal

 

 

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.
