I'm probabøy getting red thumbs for this, but if you look somewhat closely you can tell they reversed it. If you really did that the liquids would just get more mixed...

No, this is real, and coming from a PhD student in environmental engineering who has taken classes where this kind of phenomenon is explained.

if you watch his pinky while he turns it, it's originally on the plastic base and then he takes it off mid turning but it never goes back on when he reverses the direstion of turning. that pretty much proved it for me. so no. not reversed :)

I would like to see someone taking the second half of the gif, reversing it and putting them side-by-side... Then I will be convinced.(maybe)

Riiight. And I'm supposed to take science lessons from an angry black man whom I have not seen any certification or proof of knowing science?

Seriously watch the hands. They do the exact same things, only in reverse...

Laminar flow, which is real, is a state of flow with nearly no turbulence.

By being in a non-turbulent state, the fluid here can be acted upon by a mechanical force (the turning you see) and, if reverse perfectly, the fluid will return to its exact original state.
Perfect laminar flow is very difficult to achieve, which causes interesting problems when engineering piping systems for petrochemical facilities. Every turn, every valve, every seam in each pipe creates a change in the flow characteristics of the piping system. In some cases (such as differential pressure based flow measurement systems) a change in flow can be created using a precisely machined orifice, and the difference in pressure before and after the orifice, along with the static pressure of the line (and in more and more cases, the temperature of the fluid) are used to calculate the flow through the restriction, which allows for precise tracking of sales, production, fuel usage, mixing of chemicals, etc.

TL;DR:
It's real, it's awesome, and at the same time, it's a pain in the ass, but it's what makes the world go round.

Flow, ************.

Flow.
