Scroll to the 30 second mark and start it, otherwise it's Madonna.

Supercooling, also known as undercooling, is the process of lowering the temperature of a liquid or a gas below its freezing point without it becoming a solid.

A liquid below its standard freezing point will crystallize in the presence of a seed crystal or nucleus around which a crystal structure can form. However, lacking any such nucleus, the liquid phase can be maintained all the way down to the temperature at which crystal homogeneous nucleation occurs. Homogeneous nucleation can occur above the glass transition temperature, but if homogenous nucleation has not occurred above that temperature an amorphous (non-crystalline) solid will form.

Still a very strange demonstration.

I've never seen this happen. Any water bottle left in the car in the winter has without exception frozen solid. Perhaps this is a uniquely Canadian phenomenon. 13.gif

Tossing a pot of boiling water into the air in at least -15 to -20 temps is pretty damn cool too.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Teach proved that boiling water freezes faster then cold water

later, when i turned 21
I saw teach at a bar

and I proved a HOT Chick will lay you faster than a Cold Chick
