When you are at the bar, place a little sugar or salt to the top of your cocktail napkin....and the bottom of the glass will not stick to it as you lift it up.

If you eat Wint-O-Green Life Savers in the dark you'll see flashes of light

Actually, all hard sugar-based candies emit some degree of light when you bite them, but most of the time, that light is very faint. This effect is called triboluminescence, which is similar to the electrical charge build-up that produces lightning, only much less grand. Triboluminescence is the emission of light resulting from something being smashed or torn. When you rip a piece of tape off the roll, it will produce a slight glow for the same reason.

Triboluminescence occurs when molecules, in this case crystalline sugars, are crushed, forcing some electrons out of their atomic fields. These free electrons bump into nitrogen molecules in the air. When they collide, the electrons impart energy to the nitrogen molecules, causing them to vibrate. In this excited state, and in order to get rid of the excess energy, these nitrogen molecules emit light -- mostly ultraviolet (nonvisible) light, but they do emit a small amount of visible light as well. This is why all hard, sugary candies will produce a faint glow when cracked.

But when you bite into a Wint-O-Green Life Saver, a much greater amount of visible light can be seen.

This brighter light is produced by the wintergreen flavoring. Methyl salicylate, or oil of wintergreen, is fluorescent, meaning it absorbs light of a shorter wavelength and then emits it as light of a longer wavelength. Ultraviolet light has a shorter wavelength than visible light. So when a Wint-O-Green Life Saver is crushed between your teeth, the methyl salicylate molecules absorb the ultraviolet, shorter wavelength light produced by the excited nitrogen, and re-emit it as light of the visible spectrum, specifically as blue light -- thus the blue sparks that jump out of your mouth when you crunch on a Wint-O-Green Life Saver.

cool.


I got a good one;

If you ever drop your cell phone in water.....NEVER try to turn it on, instead; take out the battery without opening the phone (You might turn it on by doing this) immediately and let it dry.....for one day at least.
These phone are ruined because people turn them on once they drop them into water and when the chips are activated, the water creates a short and hence you are SOL.

Despite what most people believe, the giant squid is not the largest squid in actuality the less talked about colossal squid is.

Natural gas has no odor. The smell is added artificially so that leaks can be detected.

Toilets in the southern hemisphere flush in the opposite direction from toilets in the northern hemisphere (the water in one goes clockwise, the other counterclockwise--can't remember which, but I can't be bothered to go down the hall and check it out right now!!)

The actor who played 17 year old Cameron in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" was actually about to turn 30 years old when they offered him the role of a high school student.

The plan to assinate Lincoln also included assinating the Vice President and the Secretary of State as well.
