It’s amazing how an idea can seem so flawless, and then cause a completely unforeseen, yet perfectly logical conclusion.
Ok, so here’s the idea: We have a squeezable, bear-shaped, honey bottle. I need to get honey out of the honey bear, but there’s not much left, and at this rate, it’ll take 3 days before I get any honey from the bear’s butt (where it’s all been sitting) to the bear’s head (where the spout is). Solution: turn the bear upside-down (it has a lid that’s meant for that you know), and put it in the microwave for a few seconds
Well, it worked beautifully. After 10 seconds in the microwave, most of the honey was sitting cooperatively in the bear’s brain area, ready to be squeezed out. Then I learned something about physics which I’m sure I already knew: hot air has a greater volume than cold air. So when I opened the cap (that was full of honey, mind you)… let’s just say there was no need for squeezing.
So I made a little mess, and learned a little lesson: Squeeze out a little air before putting your honey bear in the microwave.
