      Hey GAV AND DAN! I was watching random videos and came across something that may interest you guys but I have no idea how to send a message, anyways it's playing music with a Bunsen burner and it's really interesting by itself so i think slow mo would be incredible. This is the link It's called "Musical fire Table" and uploader is "Veritasium " just in case you get too nervous to click the link, you can just search it lol a lot of people post spam and links to virus's so I get it if anyone's fearful to click a random link lol

    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.

    I know we are told to plug in from outlet to machine but go the opposite way when using multiple cords. Watch that third prong at the bottom, it is the grounding wire and can get a shock. Replace the cord or check that the house and outlets are properly grounded.
