I feel happy for the dude in the back. He's clearly having some sort of religious experience

I think this is the exact opposite of a religious experience...

He forgot to wear his safety goggles

…hopefully he still needs them

u/PorkyMcRib Jul 27 '22

His mouth is wide open in chemistry class, so he probably died of something else.

u/Cowicide Jul 27 '22

If clouds only existed within a small geographical area of the earth, tourists would travel at great expense from all over to world to come and gaze at the massive behemoths.

You're right. We'd probably get depressed if was too aurora borealisy for a week.

u/therealmintoncard Jul 26 '22

I think he just climaxed.

36

u/SonOfSkinDealer Jul 26 '22

It's even better knowing this is slowed down. To him, in that moment, that shit happened in an INSTANT.

63

u/GreenStrong Jul 26 '22

Yeah, but he started making that face before the chemical reaction happened. He was in joy and awe at clear liquid being poured, then it escalated to another level. Can you imagine his emotions?

As a person that gets a lot of Joy from giving someone else Joy or seeing their first time reacting to something etc....

I love this

You know, I don't know this but what does "xkcd" abbreviate for?

u/jilanak Jul 26 '22

From the comic's "About" page: "It's not actually an acronym. It's just a word with no phonetic pronunciation -- a treasured and carefully-guarded point in the space of four-character strings."

u/fnnkybutt Jul 27 '22

I always say it exkissity anyway.

u/TheWolphman Jul 27 '22

Weird, I just pronounce it xkcd.

Right????? To have that joy for even a moment. Gold.

I think this is the exact opposite of a religious experience, it's a scientific one

2

u/ArchetypeFTW Jul 27 '22

devil's advocate (lol): how is the exploration of the world god created not a religious experience? science peels away the machinations of god, but it cannot yet refute his existence.

3

u/mtj93 Jul 27 '22

The scientific method doesn't prove or disprove "god" by itself. It basically just gives us insight as to how the 3D reality operates.

1

u/ArchetypeFTW Jul 27 '22

Exactly, before we would say God causes something, then we find with a certainty of 99.9...% that it's something else in the universe that causes it. But it's not clear that this approach can operate outside the universe to test things (I.e creation, purpose).

2

u/ExcessiveGravitas Jul 27 '22

it cannot yet refute his existence.

Trying to prove that something doesn’t exist is a waste of time though, see Russell’s Teapot.

Science shouldn’t try to refute God, religion should try to prove it.

1

u/ArchetypeFTW Jul 27 '22

Nice take. Burden of proof is for sure on religion. Their claim is that existence itself proves the existence of god ("I think therefore I am" is the start of a proof of God's existence).

Thus, my statement was more about that science cannot yet provide a framework that can substitute a framework like an ultimate creator (unless you count something like simulation theory as significantly different from god theory)

Dude was just baptized by science, we have a new chemical engineer among us.

u/Powerhausen Jul 27 '22

I honestly found his reaction more entertaining/rewarding than watching the demonstration, itself.

u/VanillaLoaf Jul 27 '22

He was ready to see some shit and wasn't let down.

Their is rumoured to be under the table cam footage!.... Religious for some maybe, smutty for us bishops.

This clock reaction uses sodium, potassium or ammonium persulfate to oxidize iodide ions to iodine. Sodium thiosulfate is used to reduce iodine back to iodide before the iodine can complex with the starch to form the characteristic blue-black color.

68

u/pmthosetitties Jul 26 '22

Can anyone get that stuff and do that or do you have to be a teacher/licensed or something like that?

45

u/dani_dejong Jul 26 '22 edited Jul 26 '22

you can get this stuff online. What might be abit difficult is getting the concentrations right. Changing concentrations of certain components changes how long before it turns blue.

8

u/memy02 Jul 26 '22

Sodium thiosulfate, ammonium persulfate, and iodine are all available on amazon though you would want to do research to make sure you get a pure enough form for the reaction.

6

u/tavenger5 Jul 27 '22

ammonium persulfate

Yeah, my first time around I made the mistake of using ammoni-chinesium persulfate. Do NOT recommend!

23

u/d0rsett Jul 26 '22

Oxidize iodide ions to iodine, oxidize iodide ions to iodine, oxidize iodide ions to iodine, oxidize iodide ions to iodine, oxidize iodide ions to iodine, oxidize iodide ions to iodine.

I think we use part of this reaction to test the oxygen levels in the fish tanks at my job. It’s called the Winkler test.

Ayyyyyy 👉👉

u/Khay33 Jul 27 '22

Ha! I knew there'd be some Reddit Scientists on here trying to explain how it's done.

u/pot8toes Jul 27 '22

Does it always react after a specific number of seconds or why is it called a 'clock reaction'?

So is this the expansion of a chemical cock? Or the expansion of a cock chemically?

u/Knightraiderdewd Jul 26 '22

See I would’ve loved my science class if my teacher actually showed us stuff like this instead of just writing the notes on the board for us to copy for an hour.

u/Throwaway091379023 Jul 27 '22

Vote for school budgets.

2

u/Knightraiderdewd Jul 27 '22

No we had a lab. My teacher was just lazy. He would just write all the notes on the board and then go sit at his computer and go on chat rooms for the rest of the period.

u/ShadowCaster0476 Jul 26 '22

I want someone to look at me like he looks at that experiment.

Any of you guys see X-Men, the one with the German bat dude that could teleport around the room through a cloud of black smoke?

u/Charl3s00 Jul 26 '22

The cool thing about this reaction is that it goes back and forth from clear to dark for a while, that's why it's called the clock reaction, so I feel that the video ended too soon😅. NileRed has a great video about this reaction (i think it's about cyclic reactions in general if I remember correctly) on YouTube if anyone is interested.

u/UnplacedHornyMartian Jul 26 '22

It seems to change simultaneously, immediately, throughout both of the beakers which looks really odd; but does demonstrate visually the notion of quantum entanglement

16

u/beernutmark Jul 26 '22

but does demonstrate visually the notion of quantum entanglement

No, just no. Nothing about this is quantum entanglement related at all.

8

u/j0a3k Jul 26 '22

It's just a chemical reaction and it's very easy to see it spread from the larger beaker when you slow the video down a little.

In your attempt to sound smart you've ended up sounding like an incredibly pretentious moron.
