    An investigation was carried out to find whether sulphur is magnetic or not. The guy sets up all the equipment wtf? Biggest waste of time ever. Just stick a magnet next to it. The tissue had no purpose whatsoever. Does sulphur even look metallic? Meh, this video pissed me off.

    I don`t get why they make the simple act of holding a magnet up to a clump of sulfur to see if they attract each other look so complicated. O___O

    I`ll watch the rest later because my summer is boring, because I have no life.

    ...And acting accordingly to such, may I say that sulphur is a non-metal because it contains no metal atoms but does have the properties of a metal.

    I laughed so hard when the scientist pulled out the mirror at the end of the video....just move! and the other guy pulled out another mirror. just don`t look at the first mirror!

    i`m gonna make one of my friends drink sulphagne just to see if that really happens....it`d be better if i didn`t forget my pistol.....

    or garbage can.

    I didn`t find it funny though, I found it frustratingly. I wanted to scream "get it over with already" at my computer.
    Which is why I didn`t finish watching it. I had to stop before it drove me mad.

    How is it that the Americans and the English call it "sulfur" and "sulphur" respectively, yet everyone can agree on how to spell "sulphagne"? :P

    Surely 3000 miles of water turns it to "sulfagne"? :P:D

    Yep, sad indeed. Almost worrying when it`s something so obviously satirical.

    I wonder if anyone actually thought drinking sulphagne would make you shoot lasers out of your eyes?

    KNeTG: the original spelling was sulphur, but america spelt it sulfur

    in a recent standardisation the offical speeling was fixed to the american version "sulfur", but this is the same standardisation that corrected the american spelling of aluminum back to aluminium

    truth is it hasnt changed in common use since its info no-one really hears, i only know because one ofmy lecturers used to edit american journals for international use and the fact that no-one changed their spelling after standardisation kind annoyed him

    and looks around you is awesome, season one lampoons the old open university shows, season 2 lampoons shows like tomorrows world

    what we need is a third season taking on modern demo shows

    also watch it and see if you spot the simon pegg cameo in one episode

    Right up until he threw the entire experiment away. Before that, sadly, it could have been genuine.
