Ummm. Yeah. Don't throw water on burning oil. Because OUCH.
 
If you ever have an oil fire in your kitchen, the most important thing is never to pour water on it. The physics reason is that the water will sink straight to the bottom of the burning oil, hit the bottom of the pan, evaporate nearly instantly, and now you have a rapidly expanding (not quite exploding but close) cloud of water vapor propelling burning oil in all directions.

What does that mean in practice? +The Slow Mo Guys decided to test it out, and film it at 2500fps.

Let's just say that their decision to pour the water on the fire from the end of a long pole, from behind a barricade, while wearing protective gear, was very wise indeed.

(The correct way to put out an oil fire is to starve it of oxygen: put a metal [not glass!] lid on the pot.)

SQUEEEEEE
We’ve known for a while that The Flash would be bringing in the original Flash, Jay Garrick, in its second season. Now we’ve got our first look at Teddy Sears in action as the Flash of Earth-2, and it’s in a glorious, glorious homage to the iconic comic cover for The Flash #123: Flash Of Two Worlds!

And then there's this.

Why yes, the #workingpoor really do live like this. It was just as bad in the '70s and '80s as it is now. Only now there's more people living like this, I think.

I'm published again over at SQLServerCentral.com. It's a free read (just requires a free registration if you don't have one). Stop on by and read The ABCs of Database Creation.

I'd love to hear your feedback.

After a more than nine-year, three-billion-mile journey to Pluto, it’s show time for our New Horizons spacecraft, as the flyby sequence of science observations is officially underway. This view from just under 5 million miles away is centered roughly on the area that will be seen close-up during New Horizons’ July 14 #PlutoFlyby. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1gojoDp
