Hot ice, everyone. Or supersaturation. I’ve done this in a lab and it is fun as hell. I’m going to explain the process of what the thing I did was, and assume it applies to what is going on in this gif. If I am wrong someone let me know.
I’m going to guess this is sodium acetate, as that’s what I worked with. You can make it with baking soda and vinegar. You very slowly add bits of baking soda to the vinegar and stir between additions - slow enough that you don’t get the volcano effect that kids love to make. Once the baking soda has been added, you boil it to further concentrate it, and stop boiling once a film has started to form over the surface. Covering the liquid to prevent evaporation and cooling it results in a supercooled liquid - a liquid that is actually at a temperature below its melting point. Something as simple as touching it - either with a fingertip or with another crystal, which could be what the ‘ice cube’ in the gif is - should activate the exothermic reaction that results in instant crystallization. And the crystals will be warm to the touch. Hence the name ‘hot ice’.
HOW CAN ANYONE NOT LIKE MOTHERFUCKIN SCIENCE

Its been so crazy since I got back here.
I know I haven’t been posting much but hell I’ve been a little nuts too.
I got to find a local job and work here for now. That sucks..
Spending time with my boys.. they were so happy to see me and I was to see them. Live will be good..
I’m Rob and I’m in RI again..
Saw my Kids and they are so huge..
Also had to change a tire that the belt was worn out so bad the tread came off of it, almost and a bald tire as in a bald as fuck tire… I had a extra full size and fixed the dangerous one in new York And got the second done up in providence..
About to go to karaoke and see a Dj friend of mine and surprise him that I’m here..
Have a good night.
So there has been a development. The family needs me back in RI to deal with some thing and I don’t know if I’ll be able to return to my job. This saddens me greatly but if not for family, whatcha gonna do?
Hey tumblr. See that guy in last place, Cameron? He’s the reason I exist (in that he’s the reason my parents met, so, ya know). Would you mind voting for him, for me? It’ll take you like 2 seconds. I think it would be really fantastic if he came from last place and won. Plus, I like existing.
Who doesn’t love an underdog… (If you voted yesterday, you COULD vote again today) 👨👍🙏
Guys!! Cameron’s not in last anymore! Vote if you haven’t, it’s super easy. Literally takes 1 second. No registration. Make my dreams come true.
Just 57 votes needed to put Cameron in 4th place! Just 2 button clicks required on your part!! 👨🙏
please click this.. I have a few times
