The 60 Second Experiment

Ever felt like amusing the person sitting right next to you or wanting to tell them something they won’t believe but then actually physically proving it to them right that second?  Well now you can.


It’s simple. Just follow the instructions to this anti-common sense experiment/trick that will leave give you one of those “I can can do something awesome” feeling. I founded this and other upcoming experiments through research and they take only 60 seconds to perform(including the time required to gather the material).

Making Tea in a Plastic Bag:

Imagine that you’re stuck on a Nazi Island with nothing else then a plastic bag, some logs of wood, a matchstick and the contents of some good quality Lipton Tea. What to do? Make some tea and calm yourself down.

You’re stupid. How the heck we’re supposed to make tea without any container?

That’s where I come in handy. Following are the materials required for the experiment:

1. An average size Polythene/Plastic Bag. Thinner the better.





2. Tap Water





3. A Kitchen Stove





Fill the plastic bag with the water from the tap. Turn on the stove. Heat the plastic bag containing the water. After awhile you will observe the water will start heating up and eventually start boiling. (Caution: Make sure the heat is touching only the water containing part of the plastic bag, or else you will fail miserably and make a fool out of yourself).

So what Irfan. Whats the freaking big deal about this? Its just water boiling up!

Ok ok you are right. It is water boling up but the amazing thing about this is that even though its a known fact that platic bags deteriorate extremely quickly when exposed to fire, this charisma of a plastic bag doesn’t.

Hope you try the experiment at least once. Stay tuned for the simple science behind this one(which I am sure you smart people would have guessed so please feel free to post in the comments section) and for some more even better tricks to amaze your amigos.

  1. You can do the same with a baloon filled with air and a little water. The concept is simple. The water absorbs the heat which otherwise would have been used to climb the activation energy required for combustion. Courtesy of God Damn CIE 😛

Come on. It only takes a minute. Comment please.
