I learned a new phrase today. The Leidenfrost Effect. You’ve seen it happen, but probably didn’t know the name of such effect.

The article has an explanation, but in short: When a liquid meets a hot surface, the bottom layer of liquid instantly evaporates. This leaves a protective layer of gas between the surface and the rest of the water droplet, preventing contact between the two.

This is why Crazy Ivan here can, very quickly, swipe his hand through liquid hot metal.

It’s why you see water beads dance on a hot pan when cooking. Who am I kidding, you only microwave your food and this probably blew your mind.
