Since we've been talking about chemistry and physics and the problems we have in applying the subjects to "real life," why don't we all watch the following video clip (you've probably seen it before anyway) and see how these 2 nutters interpret "applied science":
Now then, is this experiment a demonstration of a chemical or physical reaction? or magic? How would you explain what we've just seen? A gold star for anyone who attempts some kind of plausible, rational explanation!
