Saw the videos most of these came from.

Save yourself the trouble and find the videos, the GIFs suck.

This isn't microgravity, it's just the rag he's had in his sleeping bag for the past 166 days....

An electronic circuit that dissolves in water. Haven't they had those in cell phones for years?

Their explanation for the bead chain one couldn't be more wrong.  That is to say, it could be more wrong, but it's wrong enough that I feel like employing some hyperbole

One drop every nine years or so.  World's most viscous liquid - that we've bothered to test, anyway.

This is pitch.  It looks solid, feels solid, and can be broken like a solid.  But at room temperature it is actually an extremely viscous liquid, such that it takes roughly nine years to create one drop through a funnel.  This past year was the first time the "drop" from a pitch experiment was recorded on video.

That's me on the toilet after eating a burrito from the all-nite mexican take-out.
