Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson

You gotta love the cool way which he uses far more bacon than is in a pack and yet still demonstrates the easy reseal with 3 or 4 rashers still in there. If this was a proper ad it would never make it to screen but because it's just a sponsored demonstration they can make up any old bollocks! Don't you just love advertising!
Very nice - I didn't realize the inside of those bottles could be so flawless (so as not to nucleate freezing).
I've done (not on purpose!) the complimentary deed of super-heating water in a really new glass in a microwave oven. Drop in tea-leave and 'fooosh'. This is probably the (false) proof of urban (and rural) legends about microwaves staying in food and being unhealthy.
Also - did this for real crystallization. Usually containers are used enough to have tiny flaws so that crystallization starts at the point (a point of higher potential energy - don't worry about why). Every once in a while, when the containers are smooth and new, one needs to either drop in as seed (like touching ice to the super-cooled water in video) or try to scratch the inner surface to create a nucleation point. The crystal growth is rapid and often beautiful when you do this (also, because it's quick, it defeats the purpose of crystallization for purification).

I've done it with beer myself, though unintentionally. Left one in the freezer a bit too long, but it looked fine when I took it out. Popping the top gave it just enough of a shock to start the crystalization, which descended from the top of the bottle like falling snow.
It looked amazing, but was a total waste of a beer.
So they reckon the universe is expanding. And they reckon the rate of expansion is accelerating. This is so wrong! The laws of gravity dictate that the rate of expansion should decrease over time, not increase.
What is powering this increase in expansion rate? It has to be dark energy fuelling the Dark Side of The Force, which is slowly blasting the universe asunder. Humanity is so screwed! And you think your problems with Windows 10 are important? Get your priorities right, Bubba.

I don't have any problems with Win10 - I'm running Win7 and Ubuntu
But at least there's no doubt about your name, huh Bubba?
