    Now that goes back to your first statement holes. There was holes in the popcorn machine to let water in and that made it not to be buoyant.
    That hole is for butter!!

    I don't think that's quite true. Ice is lighter than water. It is the basis of the mixing that occurs as water drops in temperature and then freezes. I forget the magic number but as water chills, it gets denser/heavier and sinks, taking nutrients with it lower. But as it chills further and freezes it will float as it gains weight. It is the reason ice forms on the surface, protecting the underlying water and its various fishes and thingies from fully freezing. The reverse happens as it warms in Spring. The chilled melt water sinks, stirring the pot so to speak, and then warms some more and mixes thoroughly. Or something like that.

    But then, maybe I don't remember any of that!

    No he's not? It's so it can float around and find boats to crash into and sink! Just like the one I'm on?

    And yes its all of the above density, surface tension, and displacement.

    That's good. We would not want all those bacteria you introduced on the surface of the paper clip to drown!

    I believe your tension is more than surface deep - so is that water waiting to envelope you!

    Mmmmmmmm and there I was thinking displacement and surface tension was physics not biology? You learn something new every day don't you? Just goes to show that having a Masters Degree makes you thick. Hold on I have a Masters Degree..................ah at last I understand why I'm thick?
