Sometimes the easiest experiments are the most impressive ones, as the Reardon Bros show with their 10 best dry ice experiments.
You might remember these guys from the Carbonite chocolate Han Solo + Chocolate Lego stormtropper article, and even if I still can’t warm up (pun intended) with the music and some of the attitude, this video is pretty cool (again pun intended). It reminded me of a show I used to watch on TV ages ago called “Knoff hoff” (yes, the wrong German pronunciation of “know how”). This was more scientific with explanations, but the idea was the same, namely using household stuff and showing the often surprising results.
I guess some of the Reardon experiments could actually happen on today’s Rosenmontag (Red Monday) in Germany when all kinds of drunks do stupid things (not only dressing up as clowns, but behaving like them as well). Anyway, if the dry ice rocket or coke and ice experiments are done in a safe environment, these could turn out to be pretty awesome. Speaking of awesome, the milkshake fail is my personal favorite in addition to the moving coin and floating bubbles. So make sure to check out the whole video.
Have you done any of these experiments? Or do you know of any other hilarious videos? Let me know, as this could actually turn out to be something I’m looking into more in the near future.
