Those were really cool
minus the superfluid helium, the video was kind of boring.

But in general, why didn`t they teach me any of THIS in chemistry class?

Number 6 angered me. I recognized the song at the beginning, and didn`t know where it was from, so I spent most of my time looking for it... Anyways, I liked the Meissner Effect, and the Thermite vs. Liquid Nitrogen...

Does anyone know that sulphur hexafluoride holds the record for most potent greenhouse gas? I did a report on that a few years ago.

I`ve seen the gummy bear one before, I did it in school.
Those were all very pretty reactions, and the Meissner Effect is really cool.

My teacher did the gummy bear experiment in my Grade 9 science... it was really cool but we had to swear safety glasses.

and we got bonus marks if we wrote a farewell poem about the gummy bear - I miss grade 9 :P

^ You`re way to dense for that, nothing personal. ;)

It might be possible though, if you could make a "boat" large enough and light enough though, but I`m too lazy to do the math right now.
