Are we not doing phasing anymore?

A lot depends on how you define phase. It can get pretty abstract out there.

Really seemed more like a semantical argument.  It's not like they put plasma in there created a quadruple phase.  They just  claim they jammed two solids and two liquids in with a gas.  Still a triple point.

For pure substances, the Gibbs Phase Rule predicts a maximum of 3 phases.

...the researchers worked with a mixture of two substances in a background solvent: rods and polymers.


Yeah, when you have a three-component mixture, the rule for pure substances doesn't apply.  Go farking figure.

That's physics - rules and laws are more like, "Well this is really, really improbable, barring specific local conditions now and again maybe - we don't know for sure because we don't know everything.  And we never will - and that's the fun part.  Sometimes anyway."

I assume Japanese mayonnaise has 6 phases then

I'm kind of shocked this got to print. It really is that stupid.

That's a lot of tampons.

That's pretty bad-ass. I can't wait to bring it up at my next scripture meeting
