  1. LOL. Hoax… you can tell the instant they say ‘ionized salt’… no one who knows chemistry would make that mistake. Those look like those moist beads you can get in craft stores for keeping flowers watered.

    Oh yeah, and Calcium Bicarbonate does not exist as a solid.

  2. Inoculated: Sodium bicarbonate is sold in powder form as a pool supply; it looks and feels very calcite-like? I’ve got a few pounds of it around for dissolving ink and wax off of copper etching plates.

    Yep, just a hoax. Good call on giving people impossible things to obtain so you can find out how popular your hoax is via a google search.

  3. @Inocculated Mind: “Ionized salt” may also simply be a typo. The container that’s clearly visible behind the text says “iodized salt”, which is quite common.

    Still, it looks fake to me too. Much more likely that they created a liquid with an index of refraction that is almost equal to that of glass marbles, which makes the marbles seem to disappear when submerged.

    Indeed, notice how he doesn’t drop the spheres on the countertop, where the supposed watery spheres would splatter but glass or gelatinous spheres used in a hoax would not.
