Sometimes cool science demonstrations take place right in front of your own eyes. You might throw a paper airplane at just the right angle or drop some mentos into a bottle of Diet Coke and end up seeing something you never expected. That’s what happened to this man when he dropped a handful of hydrogel beads into a hot frying pan. To his surprise they started jumping around and making a pretty hellacious noise. That’s when he grabbed a handful more, threw them on the hot stove and watched as things really went wild. Although this mini-science experiment is fun to watch, it is definitely not reccomended to try for yourself.
