what happens if you drink it first?

I assume nothing would happen. It appears that there is something under the lid that reacts with the water.

You couldn't drink it, b/c the moment you move it too harsh, it will freez

That's weird, I go to this school.

Ah, cool thanks - we usually don't move the samples after cooling them down so i wasn't quit sure ^^

You freeze.
#10 - gustamelusta (09/18/2012) [-]
It works on distilled water due to the lack of impurities and air bubbles, hence why agitation creates an instant freeze. if you heat distilled water beyond 100 degree's it will not boil, if you then agitate it by say dropping something in it, it explodes.

**yunablade rolled a random image posted in comment #43 at Photobomb level: win **

So now they created liquid dildos?

Man what would they invent next.

id call that a win good sir

has to be done with distilled water, taken below freezing point - because there are no impurities in the water, the ice crystals have nothing to form around. Shaking the bottle induces nucleation sites which allow crystals to form around them....

Yupp. Thank you for not being a dumb **** .

People may say magic isn't real, but if that were true, then why the **** do we have...

is it me, or does that look like the land mass of asia and europe in green..

So now I know how it WORKS, but can someone tell me how to actually DO this? I want to feel like a wizard. Pic semi-related.

Put distilled water in the bottle. Put the bottle in the freezer. Wait for it to get cold. Do what they did in the video.
User avatar #87 to #84 - raggedy (09/19/2012) [-]
Well gee. That's easy.

HOW?
User avatar #3 to #1 - BIGSEXYISBACKAGAIN (09/18/2012) [-]
Water can actually get to -40 degrees celsius and stay in a liquid state. He didn't really get into too much detail about the processes involved though so I can't really answer your question, but that is one of the ways that hailstones grow in clouds. It can either come into contact with supercooled water and freeze instantly, or it can get coated in regular water and then et lifted to the freezing level.
#6 to #3 - ninootendoo (09/18/2012) [-]
But he just shook it.. how do you explain that?

Read my other reply. You can agitate (shake) it, or add an ice nuclei.
User avatar #5 to #1 - BIGSEXYISBACKAGAIN (09/18/2012) [-]
Also, to et the supercooled water to turn to ice you either need to agitate it lie in the video, or you could add an ice nuclei which could either be ice itself or it could be something with a similar crystalline structure such as silver iodide.

Ah i see, thank you for explaining (:

its called nucleation
#86 to #60 - anon (09/19/2012) [-]
Nucleation isn't exactly the process per se. The water can only reach sub-freezing temperatures (a process called supercooling) with very few nucleation sites (where the energy required to change from liquid to solid phase is much lower) and a slow reduction of temperature (to maintain a uniform temperature). The shaking created creases in the bottle and bubbles in solution that gave the liquid the ability to heterogeneously nucleate; and the initial piece of ice formed was the base for the rest of the nucleation. You can trust me, I'm an anon.
User avatar #65 to #60 - BIGSEXYISBACKAGAIN (09/19/2012) [-]
Correct! It's the same process as Diet Coke and Mentos.

I find this fascinating. But is there a tutorial on how to do it?
