You're Killing My Vibe, Man: What Happens When You Pour Molten Aluminum Into A Lava Lamp

This is a video of TheBackyardScientist pouring molten aluminum into a giant lava lamp to see what happens (previously: a watermelon). Just to see what happens is arguably the number one reason for the science experiments I see performed on Youtube. No scientific method, no constructing a hypothesis, let's just see what happens. I think that's how I want to start living my life. Also, who comes up with these ideas? Who sees a lava lamp and realizes they need to pour molten aluminum into it? What HASN'T this guy poured molten aluminum into? Did you know you can drink molten aluminum? You can drink it once, just like lava. You have to pick one or the other though, you can't try both.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Sticky, whose hand I politely declined to shake.
