Gallium is a silvery metal with atomic number 31. It’s used in semiconductors and LEDs, but the cool thing about it is its melting point, which is only about 85 degrees Fahrenheit. If you hold a solid gallium crystal in your hand, your body heat will cause it to slowly melt into a silvery metallic puddle. Pour it into a dish, and it freezes back into a solid.
While you probably shouldn’t lick your fingers after playing with it, gallium isn’t toxic and won’t make you crazy like mercury does. And if you get tired of it, you can melt it onto glass and make yourself a mirror.
Someone get me this for my non-birthday.
THIS WAS IN A BOOK I READ IN SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS USED TO MOLD THEM INTO SPOONS AND THEN GIVE THEM TO OTHER PEOPLE WITH THEIR TEA AND THE SPOONS WOULD JUST MELT AND THE SCIENTISTS WOULD LAUGH AS THE PEOPLE GOT ALL FLUSTERED LITERALLY NO ONE ELSE FOUND IT AS FUNNY AS I DID
Just because you work for a municipal service doesn’t mean your shit doesn’t stink. You came from a private service! The same private service you were just ragging on. You think just because you’ve got a different truck now, that you’re high and mighty? No, you’re the same arrogant asshole you’ve always been.
I haven’t seen my brother in about two months. Haven’t even really talked to him more than the occasional “Hey” in the same time frame. How can two people be related and be so close and then just fall out like this?
So I’m standing outside the firehouse smoking and this car pulled up. Some skanky looking whore got out, asked me for a cigarette, and then propositioned sex for a full pack of smokes. It’s official, my firehouse is now in the ghetto.
