looks cool but I keep on getting a Facebook error every time I try using it.
Why do you have to remove the bones before you eat? All the pleasure is sucking the meat off the bones, isn't it? ....Or am I strange?
I don't think you are strange at all.
What we do have in common is that we all don’t want to leave ANY meat around bones in any way !
most science majors get to do this in lab, and it's dece, but on this scale it's awesome.
oddly, the guy in the video calls this "quantum levitation" and talks about "locking", which i'm pretty sure is the wrong way to describe it. anyone care to expound?
i can't find any literature referencing "magnetic levitation" as "quantum levitation", but oh well, i guess it sounds more viral (OMG VIRAL, LIKE BUTTON, DERP).
for anyone interested, some more info: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meissner_effect
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flux_pinning = "locking"
regardless, this is the best demo of this effect i have seen.
such a cool phenomenon.
i haven't read enough to say why, but I think that this is indeed different from the Meissner Effect so they may be justified throwing "quantum" in there.
Quantum Locking is what happens when you expose a super-cooled superconductor to a magnetic field. The super-cooled semiconductor allows the magnetic field thru only at certain weak points called Flux Tubes. In this way, the superconductor material can be 'locked' into a particular position in the magetic field.
FYI - I posted a link in my re-recommendation that shows a larger experiment using quantum-locking.
Even better Chiddy Bang. Visualize it! gattis.github.com/milkshake/?tracks=http%3A//soundcloud.c...
I have yet to see the movie but I am torn between amusement at the idea of real superheroes, horror at the trauma (or delusion) that drives these people to do this, and a deep hope that one of these "heroes" will turn into a real Batman.
I'm not ashamed to say it. I WANT TO SEE BATMAN.
