Video Description:

Some people collect stamps. Wolfram Research co-founder and author Theo Gray collects elements. Step into his office, and you’ll see a silicon disc engraved with Homer Simpson, a jar of mercury, uranium shells and thousands of other chemical artifacts. But his real DIY masterpiece is the world’s first “periodic table table.” Within this masterfully constructed table-top lay samples of nearly every element known to man, minus the super-radioactive ones.

Theo Gray is 2011 winner of the ACS Grady Stack Award for Interpreting Chemistry for the Public. The Periodic Table Table is a testament to Theo’s love for chemistry — as well as his Ebay buying habits — and is full of fascinating stories. Come see for yourself in the latest episode of Bytesize Science.

Strap down your brain because this video is mind-blowing. This guy is a street vendor, but more: he’s an artist who has perfected his craft. Watch this vendor paint a thin layer of caramel with a ladle, then mount it on a stick.

Ordinary people are extraordinary in their own ways.

Once upon a time there lived a king.

The king had a beautiful daughter, The PRINCESS…

But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt.

No matter what; Metal, Wood, Stone,

Anything she touched would melt.

Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her.

The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter?

He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king,”If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured”.

The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.

The next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king’s wealth…

The first brought a sword of the finest steel.

But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted.
The prince went away sadly.

The second prince brought diamonds.

He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted.

He too was sent away disappointed.

The third prince approached. He told the princess, “Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there”.

The princess did as she was told, though she turned red.

She felt something hard. She held it in her hand.

And it did not melt!

The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed.

And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.

Question: What was in the prince’s pants?

M&M’s of course!

They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.

What were you thinking?
