Hot ice, everyone. Or supersaturation. I’ve done this in a lab and it is fun as hell. I’m going to explain the process of what the thing I did was, and assume it applies to what is going on in this gif. If I am wrong someone let me know.
I’m going to guess this is sodium acetate, as that’s what I worked with. You can make it with baking soda and vinegar. You very slowly add bits of baking soda to the vinegar and stir between additions - slow enough that you don’t get the volcano effect that kids love to make. Once the baking soda has been added, you boil it to further concentrate it, and stop boiling once a film has started to form over the surface. Covering the liquid to prevent evaporation and cooling it results in a supercooled liquid - a liquid that is actually at a temperature below its melting point. Something as simple as touching it - either with a fingertip or with another crystal, which could be what the ‘ice cube’ in the gif is - should activate the exothermic reaction that results in instant crystallization. And the crystals will be warm to the touch. Hence the name ‘hot ice’.
Vulcans don’t like getting wet
Cats don’t like getting wet
Vulcans are sassy assholes who show no emotions even though they have emotions

there is so much science fiction I have to watch
Greg Koukl (via gwyon)
The fact that an fetus is a human person doesn’t change one single thing.
One human cannot use to body of another human without their consent. EVEN if that body is the only thing in the entire world that will keep them alive.
If I had a very rare blood disease and there was only one person in the world who had blood that could save me, they wouldn’t have to give it to me.
Would that be sad for me? Sure. Would it mean that the government should deny that person their right to bodily autonomy to save my life?
No. No. No.
No one is obligated to use their body to sustain another human being.
Similarly, a woman has the right to decide whether or not she is physically and emotionally capable and willing to be pregnant.
Ok. No, of course you can’t force someone to give you blood. Obviously.
But your point assumes that the woman has more of a right to not be taken advantage of than the baby has a right to live. And if a baby in a human person, it has all the rights of a human person. One of these being the right to live. So who’s right is “stronger”? The right to live, or the right to not be used? Well, that’s a hard call, but one thing I do know is that, unlike the blood example, if nothing is done in the case of a pregnancy, the dependent, the baby, will live, while if nothing is done in the case of a blood disease, the dependent will die.
We do not go out in the streets and round up everyone who isn’t able to support themselves, all the people living off of government help or charity, and kill them simply because they are dependent or because they are using others without their consent (i.e. tax dollars). Obviously, pregnancy is more inconvenient and difficult than taxes, so it is not a perfect example. But there are dependents everywhere, and for the most part people recognize that something should be done so they can continue living. A baby has just as much of a right to live, even if it is totally dependent. Even if it is living inside a woman who doesn’t want it to be there. It is a human life, and it has human rights.
Yes, the woman may not want it to be there, and she may have a thousand very good reasons. But the baby is there, and it is a human being, and it has rights like all the rest of us. The rights don’t just disappear because it’s unwanted.
