You cannot fold a piece of paper in half seven times. Go ahead and try.

Note that Mythbusters finally found a way to beat this, but it required a sheet of paper half the size of an airplane hanger, a gang of people and a steam roller.

+1 on MythBusters!  They take a look at really different stories and bust the h___ out of them.

Why is it that when I drink a beer out of a bottle and take a couple of swigs then set it down look somewhere else and then it bubbles foam out of the top?

Hmmm, sounds like your drinking defective beer Jim. Keep your eye on it next time you set it down.

It never does this when I look at the bottle...

Well, a couple of ideas here Jim- 1) put your fob in the other pocket and 2) use a coaster. Maybe one made out of some kind of wood.... something nice that you would be proud to have your beer sit on. Perhaps something like Amboyna Burl from Southeast Asia?

Kirby suggested using a glass and not drinking like an animal but I told him to quiet down and look after his nuts.

The trick is to quickly make more room in the bottle for the bubbles.

I cannot believe we (the collective 'we') have let this thread die. So just to start it up again....

If you mix raw eggs with hard boiled eggs, how can you tell them apart without breaking or cracking the shell? Easy- spin them on a counter or table top.... raw eggs will not spin well but cooked eggs will spin very well. If the egg makes more than about four turns, it has been boiled.

A chemist goes into a bar with a friend. He orders H2O. The friend says "I'll have H2O too". When the drinks arrive the chemist's thirst is quenched but the friend takes a big swig of his drink and starts to gag. Why?

Probably should have ordered an H20 also :-)

It is amazing where that stuff has turned up (hydrogen peroxide)- it has been used as a propellant in some really interesting things like rockets and submarines. The stuff is highly reactive and exothermic though and tough to handle, transport and store. Every now and then a container of high purity H2O2 springs a leak and that almost always gets out of control. That is also why the stuff we buy in drug stores is only a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution and is always sold in an opaque bottle (usually dark brown); it reacts to light too.

A mushroom walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender says "we don't serve your kind in this bar". The mushroom replys "but I'm a fun guy". (fungi) ;D
