637- Pitching Curry and Moranis on Hall and Oats

Bedtime is a time to talk musicals not sing them, or in this case pitch them. Will Rick and Tim make a dreamy Daryl and John? (story at 14:48)

    I had just about nodded off when you said the word “sublimation”. I put photos on items that have a polymer coating. The process is sublimation. I’m NOT a chemistry teacher like Stephen but all I can say is that it is a cool process!

    I’m a chemistry teacher at my local community college and the misuse of the states of matter in the first part is keeping me up.
    -Sublime – Turn from a solid directly into as gas.
    -Deposition – Turn from a gas directly into a solid.
    -Non Newtonian fluid – A subtype of liquid scoots incorrectly attributes it’s propertis to a plasma. This is a catch-all for oddly behaving fluids, such as you go-yuk or your elephant glue, but they are still technically liquids.
    States of matter:
    – Plasma – Matter heated to the point that not even atoms can hold themselves together. All molecular bonds brake and the atoms begin shedding charged particles. This gives plasma an electrical field which gives it drastically different properties to normal gasses.
    -Super critical fluid – At a certain temperatures and pressures a given compounds at equilibrium between gas and liquid will find that the density of the gas state and liquid state have become equal to each other. The liquid and gas then stop being separate things and mix together creating a new substance with interesting new properties. Some are very useful. Supercritical CO2 will pass right through coffee beans but will also dissolve caffeine creating decaf coffee and isolating caffeine crystals for soda!
    -Boys Einstein condensate – New state of matter discovered by quantum physicists. Has freaky properties that defy common sense. To complicated to explain here.

    and those are the states of matter. For a long time we didn’t no any more then the first three so that is what made up the elementary and junior high curriculums. As each new one was discovered they decided to leave those out of early science education for simplicity. If you had a good highschool chemistry teacher they would have mentioned one or two of the new ones, but we really don’t dive deep until College these days. There, may be now I can sleep.

      Thanks! I feel better informed already. I attribute my issues to my plasma addled brain. My poor chemistry teacher!
      This is really great stuff and has the makings of a podcast episode…I may call it “Matter, matters”.

      Steven can I use your first name in an episode with some of these comments? I really think this could be both lulling, fun and instructive.
