    ^ 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.

    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

    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.

    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...

    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?
