    I have an experiment for you king of random.
    I really like your videos and I have seen you help ppl with curiosity
    I wanted you to do this small experiment.
    Take three jars
    Label them 1,2,3
    One should be able to handle high pressure and other low pressure and the other one a normal one.
    Put water in those containers and then pressurize, vaccumize(if that's a word) and then put all the three containers in the freezer.
    Then which one freezes faster and which one slower.
    Explain in details
    Thank you.
    Like if you want him to do the experiment
    Edit: you can replace water with other liquids to insight us more or for fun!

      Solid means the molecules are closer, so under high pressure it is gonna faster. Someone above told it wrong so I thought I should tell...

    You can't use a "Nickel" 5 cent coin to electroplate nickel onto other metals, because those coins are made of 75% copper.

        You can nickel plate steel easily, but you most likely need to nickel plate steel before you copper plate it

                                  You probably could, but I wouldn't recommend growing nickel crystals of any kind due to the fact that nickel salts are generally toxic and are suspected to be carcinogenic. However, with proper handling and preventive measures you probably wouldn't poison yourself.

                                    What would happen with paint like maybe glow in the dark paint if you boiled it or froze it or you could mix something like salt or some glowstick fluid into the rubber from a sticky hand
