There are many classes that we may have enjoyed in school but one that is a favorite of many people is science. I’ll be the first one to admit that it isn’t always the most riveting information that you are learning but because of the different chemicals that you are using and the situations that you put yourself in, there is always a possibility for something going wrong. Now, I’m not necessarily talking about a Bunsen burner exploding but there are going to be situations in which you have an opportunity to get a good laugh. That is something that all of us appreciate, and it’s something that the following video offers.
Although this video is a little dated, it is still funny today and it is going to continue to be funny for many years. It’s a man dressed in a lab outfit and he is standing in front of the camera, talking about some of the chemicals that do funny things to the human body. One of those is helium, and most of us are familiar with how helium makes your voice higher whenever you inhale it. There is another chemical, however, that he wants to show the world and it is one that most of us have not had the opportunity to use. It is sulfur hexafluoride, and he inhales it from a balloon with unexpected results.
After inhaling the sulfur hexafluoride, his voice gets very low. Unlike helium, which wears off very quickly, sulfur hexafluoride continues to stay in the lungs because it is heavy and it sinks to the bottom of the lungs. That is when he says that you need to clear your lungs by standing on your head. It makes perfect sense.
The funny thing is, when he tries to stand on his head, he ends up losing his balance and that is when the funny thing happens. I don’t want to ruin the surprise for you, you just have to watch this video to find out more.
