  • Dude, judging by the readings on that scale, and the volume of aerogel by comparison to your hand, I think my weedman sold me a solid much lighter than that.

  • CAP-ah-Larity, CAP-ah-Larry You know... like veins and capillaries? Same way trees ‘drink’ water from underground. If it was scalable, our fast food beverages would be like dribbling geysers. The effect is created by the surface tension (cohesion) of the fluid, and the forces of friction and cohesion between the tube and fluid. It occurs at ambient temperature and pressure, so it appears sort of magical. A counterintuitive illusion, an emergent phenomenon. Not unlike gravity in that respect. I dig your videos, kid. I love that you show how sloppy science can be. Makes it very accessible. A So makes me yell at my screen sometimes, like “No! Don’t do it like that! Do it like THIS!” It reminds me of how my dad used to yell at the TV while watching football when I was a kid. Lol Keep up the good work. You keep making, I’ll keep watching!
