he`s a witch!

this is one of those great experiments you can show to a god fan, and see if they can prove or disprove his magic.

I had a great 8th grade science teacher. He sold us LSD and then when we were getting off on it he`d show us stuff like this.

@1911colt No, it`s not flammable. It`s inert. Explosions could have been caused by over-pressurised gas though.

"You could fill up an otherwise empty in-ground swimming pool with sulfur hexafluoride and paddle an inflatable raft across it."

"Unfortunately, your idea just won`t float. Though the raft may, MAY, float, your weight will be too much for the SF6 to handle."

But if we inflate the raft with Helium it should be able to hold the weight of one Squrlz.

Watching this, I had an idea: You could fill up an otherwise empty in-ground swimming pool with sulfur hexafluoride and paddle an inflatable raft across it. That`s the next sulfur hexafluoride stunt I want to see. *Mythbusters*, where are you?
