Irish physics
 
The thaw caused a lot of waterpipes to burst.

Yes, we had one too.

A pipe burst due to inclement weather.

Way back in my physics teaching days, we used to do
an experiment with an expendable iron tube.

We filled it with water, sealed it with a well-fitting screw,
froze the fucker and eventually saw what happened.

Don't remember waiting to see what happened when the
shooting match thawed out.

My favourite demonstration experiment was convection:
two tubes in a box. Candle lit under one of them.
Hot air rises.
To prove that dragged air down the other tube, a source
of smoke was required....

Fine. Use whatever reasonable experiments you need to
prove you're correct.

at first I thought this was a place for things like what did the Irish physicist say when he didn't believe someone ? O'Reilly , just joking for anyone of Irish descent.

Irish Physics means the science of physics as
understood in Ireland, which of course is
exactly the same physics as understood
everywhere and anywhere else.

Math too. Math rules !

Wouldn't that qualify as a backhand personal slur, or are the moderators
still unable or unwilling to stop personal vendettas?

I guess the title and OP of this thread require that I now stop
posting here.
