meat0918: Goddamn it, none of that stuff defies physics.
id10ts: #7: My penis.heh, penis.
Fish in a Barrel: LesserEvil: I wonder what Gallium would do to somebody's aluminum rims....I wonder what it would do to a soda can that was still unopened and pressurized.
Quantum Apostrophe: meat0918: Goddamn it, none of that stuff defies physics.Seriously, this *IS* the laws of physics. What defies the laws of physics are the relentless hopes and fantasies of the crowd that thinks empty vacuum is the future of the human race.
Saiga410: I need to find out how to make Hot Ice. My son would love that.
skozlaw: What's worse? A Cracked article or a bunch of Fark posters biatching about it because they don't understand the phrase "figure of speech"?
madgordy: if you DNRTA there is not reason to as the author just does not understand.
LesserEvil: I wonder what Gallium would do to somebody's aluminum rims....
wingnut396: We get it, he's black... er I mean you hate manned space exploration.
maxheck: Dammit, no glorp.It did have Sulfur Hexafluoride though... I have fond memories of being the physics aide in high school and having access to the chemical closet which had tanks of SF6 and helium. One time the physics teacher came in and asked if I had a demonstration ready, and I and the chem aide both nodded wordlessly. As soon as he left the chem aide went Whoo! like a chipmunk while I went Whoo! like James Earl Jones.
DVDave: One of my chemistry profs said he did the same thing as a grad student, but that it took forever to cough the stuff out of their lungs after they were done having fun. Can you corroborate?
jfarkinB: DVDave: One of my chemistry profs said he did the same thing as a grad student, but that it took forever to cough the stuff out of their lungs after they were done having fun. Can you corroborate?Never had the opportunity to try it, but:1) You expel a good bit of the total volume of your lungs whenever you exhale deeply. It would only take a few deep breaths to get back up to mostly-air.2) You could always bend over.
neongoats: "Gallium attacks most other metals by diffusing into their metal lattice. Gallium, for example, diffuses into the grain boundaries of Al/Zn alloys or steel, making them very brittle. Gallium easily alloys with many metals, and is used in small quantities as a plutonium-gallium alloy in the plutonium cores of nuclear bombs, to help stabilize the plutonium crystal structure"According to wiki... It makes me wonder if the military has thought of aerosolizing it, blow a big cloud of that at enemy hardware and suddenly it crumples like that pop can.
