Ever been to Cracked.com ?  We highly recommend it if you haven’t yet!

They had a fun article on Magic Water with “5 Scientific Ways to Make Water Do Magic

Since we LOVE water here at Lugez and are so thankful for this essence of life… we wanted to post

one of the magic tricks!

 

”  #3 WATER AND WHISKEY ANTI-GRAVITY SWITCHEROO  ”

 

“This one happens with the help of the only liquid in the known universe with more magical properties than water: whiskey. Pour a shot glass full of whiskey, and another full of water. Slap a playing card over the water, and turn it over on top of the whiskey, like so.

Pull the card aside slightly, and the water and whiskey, instead of mixing, will neatly switch places:This does require some patience though, since the whole thing can take 10 minutes or more.

It works because whiskey is 40 percent alcohol, which is less dense than water. When the water glass is inverted and the card is moved to allow a tiny gap, the water trickles through, unseen. The whiskey, being lighter, is forced out of the lower glass into the upper. Scientists compare it to the jocks kicking the nerds out of the dorm in Revenge of the Nerds.”

 

For the rest of their other magical water tricks including crazy stuff like making your own snow on a freezing cold winter day….

Very Tricky…

Author: Greg Albright

This is a fun trick to do with your friends!

Freeze a Beer Instantly

or atleast that is what they think!  :)

 

1. Take a bottle of beer (preferably glass)

 

2. Place upright in your freezer for 3 hours

(making sure it doesnt get shakin in the freezer)

 

3. Take it out of the freezer and when you want it to freeze, 

Tap it on a hard surface like the table.  It will begin to crystallize and eventually freeze!

 

Have Fun!

ps… this does not harm the drink… so don’t worry about wasting it.
