    Try this bigger, and with something more viscous. Something like oil based paint.. adding colors would be interesting. Use a clear base. Thanks for the vids.. every time is like seeing the secrets of the universe. Oh.. Americans drink their tea cold.. even on ice. Try some Georgia sweet tea. The original diabetes creator.

    You guys should let SciManDan use the droplet footage at 5:02 as proof to flat earthers that objects in free fall such as liquid droplets & planets form into spheres. Flat earthers say water is always flat. Objects in free fall are weightless & automatically form into a shape with the least surface area due to isostatic adjustment. The molten matter during planetary formation seeks the centre of mass & so forms a ball. It only changes shape slightly under other influences such as spin or atmospheric drag. As long as a body’s own gravity is greater than it’s mechanical strength it forms into a sphere, if it’s gravity’s weaker, as in a small asteroid (or the sugar cube at 10:45) it’s shape will be irregular. If you see this & do get in touch with him please ask him why I’m blocked from his great channel because I’ve absolutely no idea ☹️. I can’t ask him myself because I use no other social media.
