Say What? You've heard this before...

Overheard in the next room:

(The ice disenser in the fridge door is going.)
6 year old son: "What are you doing?"

11 year old son: "I'm doing an experiment."

Me: (unable to see what's going on) "It better not involve a mess!"

11 year old son: "It doesn't."

(More ice rattling and water running.)

11 year old son: "Success!"

Okay, guess what he was doing.

He filled one part of the kitchen sink with ice and cold water. He put hot water in a 2 liter bottle. He dumped out the hot water, put on the cap and submersed the bottle in cold water. The bottle collapsed on itself.

He made the ice cube dispenser, dispense a little faster than usual!

HEY that's an experiment I saw a professor at the U do one time in physics class. Did he speak to the same professor? LOL

Did Ben explain what he did?

Yes, he told me what he'd done after I got off the computer to see what it was that had happened.
