    What can be considered one of the longest running, single experiments finally has some closure after 69 years. The exiting moment that brought it to a close? A drop of “pitch-tar” finally fell — and someone saw it.

    That’s right, the experiment at Trinity College Dublin was set up in 1944 to show the high viscosity of pitch/bituman/asphalt (the substance goes by many names), according to the college’s website.

    Wow, just wow, I can hardly contain my excitement.

    Now back to watching grass grow.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    In the FWIW column, glass is actually a liquid. It'll also sag over time, but that takes centuries. It's visible in the windows of ancient buildings and churches in Europe. Sorry, no videos available.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    Boobs are liquid too.
