While I’ve already sent this to a scientific consulting group, and am waiting a reply, it occurred to me that the Internet at large might be quicker:
Last night I took a bottle of Corona beer out of the freezer (it’d been in there for about an hour). It wasn’t frozen at all. I opened it, and sat it on the counter. I then cut a slice of lemon, dropped it down the neck, and proceeded to watch the ENTIRE BOTTLE of beer FREEZE INSTANTLY before my very eyes.
I’m sure we learned about how such things happen back in 5th grade. But that was certainly long enough ago to justify my forgetting. Does anybody know what caused this?
