Self explanatory. Audio over a static image or slideshow may also violate Rule 0.
This includes music visualizers and lyric videos
Political videos—including content relating to social issues which have a clear political element—should be submitted to /r/PoliticalVideo.
This includes submissions of current or recent political figures in any context, satire/political-comedy, and posts on political topics from within the last 10 years. (So a video of Winston Churchill playing tennis would be allowed, but a video of Theresa May playing ping-pong would not be.)
Or incitement to witch-hunt.
No demanding "Reddit Justice" (or even regular justice) in any way in post titles or comments.
Do not post names, Facebook pages, phone numbers, addresses, etc. Fake information (email@example.com, 123 fake street, etc) also falls under this rule.
This may also include contact information of public officials, businesses, or groups (e.g. politicians or police officers) in an any manner that could be seen as an attempt to get users to contact them.
Facebook links are not permitted. In order to have your post accepted, if you can, find or submit a copy of the video on another website like YouTube or Vimeo and resubmit it.
This is grounds for an immediate (and likely permanent) ban, so consider this your only warning.
No web pages that only embed Youtube or Vimeo videos.
No URL shorteners.
No links to playlists or to channel pages.
No asking for votes or sharing submission links on or off-site. See Reddiquette for more details.
Do not ask other users to follow your social media profiles in comments or submission titles.
Titles for posts should not try to influence users to view or upvote them. Examples of this include things like "this person deserves more views," "not enough people have seen this person's videos," or "show this person some love."
Giveaways also fall under this rule
Violations can lead to a permanent ban of accounts and video channels.
You are free to offer your opinion respectfully, but comments or posts intended to demean a group, acontextual expressions of bigotry, and the pejorative use of slurs is disallowed.
Baiting users into breaking this rule is not allowed.
Telling other users to hurt or kill themselves in any form is against reddit TOS, and will earn you a permanent ban.
Be kind to users in our community; remember the human.
No videos of real-life, malicious person-on-person assault/battery or physical abuse of animals.
This includes raw videos of fights and malicious violence.
This includes videos of child and animal abuse.
Public freakout videos belong in /r/PublicFreakout
No videos that are licensed by a third party.
If the video description says: 'for licensing enquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org', the video is most likely licensed by a third party. If the video has a watermark, it also may be licensed by a third party.
Videos that become licensed after they are posted will be removed. Please see this thread for a more detailed explanation.
Third-Party Licensing firms are often scams. Report any messages you receive of suspicious offers to the moderator team.
If your submission does not appear in the new queue, please contact us (be sure to include a link to the Reddit post (i.e. comments section), not the content you are linking). Simply deleting your post may cause the spam filter to catch future ones.
Note: Submissions from new users, and users with low karma, are automatically removed to help prevent spam.
Also, please contact us regarding spam, political or any other inappropriate videos, as this helps us remove them more quickly! When reporting, please explain why you think it should be removed.

Eli5 what I'm hearing and seeing?
[–]RedditorforMordor 36 points37 points38 points 3 months ago (1 child)
It's called the Leidenfrost effect
[–]StopSendingMeNudePMs 28 points29 points30 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Pretty sure they use this to create sounds for poker and pinball machines.
[–]redtert 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I was thinking Star Trek phasers.
[–]IPlayGoALot 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (2 children)
it's the instrument they used at the beginning of that one Police song
[–]Snatch_Pastry 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (1 child)
I absolutely adore that song, for a lot of reasons. I just wish I knew what the chorus(?) was about.
[–]spurioushamster 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I was wondering that myself. Is Nessie going to come and sort everything out? I need to know more.
[–][deleted] 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
its sending a distress beacon.
[–]RainJacketsStopRain 58 points59 points60 points 3 months ago (4 children)
No. Not. Again. Not this series of 4000 reposts of various red hot metals dropping into various liquids. No.
[–]Meatheaded 16 points17 points18 points 3 months ago (2 children)
I will be very disappointed if Reddit goes through another romance from start to finish with this god damn nickel ball. Now Nickelback on the other hand...
[–]Ragingwithinsanewolf 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (0 children)
you talking shit about nickelback bitch?
[–]aluminumdome 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
That's one of the most annoying aspects about big subs are the trends. It would be better to post those videos under the original video in the comments, but would that earn them the same karma as posting it in the sub instead? Nope.
[–]HappyDolt 11 points12 points13 points 3 months ago (3 children)
So, does the pocket around the metal sit there for a bit because the water is being heated to boiling slowly? That doesn't really make sense to me, but I can't really figure out why that pocket of what appears to be air doesn't rise through the more dense water immediately.
[–]ddpotanks 11 points12 points13 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I think it is actually steam that condenses back to water immediately. Little steam pocket. That's why it dissipates once the water reaches equilibrium.
[–]DoxBox 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (1 child)
It's the Leidenfrost effect. Basically, the ball is so hot that any water that touches instantly boils into steam. This steam creates that layer of "air" you see, and it insulates the water from the red hot nickel ball.
The same thing that happens when you put a few drops of liquid nitrogen into the palm of your hand. Your hand, being so warm by comparison, makes the liquid nitrogen that touches it instantly boil, creating an insulating layer that the liquid nitrogen floats on.

Also, don't do this, kids. Stick with the classics, like spraying deodorant onto your hand and lighting it.
[–]kr094 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Ah! One of the original RHNB videos. This was my favorite since, for the unexpected reaction. You'd think foam would just melt.
[–]frid 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
That's some throwback classic RHNB. From before they had the amazing PWIP! sound for the torch shut-off.
[–]paul_swimmer 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (11 children)
From what I understand, doing this is not very smart. Very hot metal introduced to water can explode I think.
[–]DoxBox 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (9 children)
Actually it's the other way around. When you bring pure water to above boiling without it having anything to nucleate on (i.e. some impurities in the water giving the bubbles places to form), it will just not boil until disturbed. This is why you shouldn't, for example, use a microwave to boil water. Boil your water for tea, drop a teabag or spoon in, and boom - steam explosion, boiling water everywhere.
[–]TheUndrawingAcorn 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (8 children)
correct, if you microwave your water and you don't see it boil, don't touch it until it cools down.
[–]heyylisten 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (7 children)
Why on earth would anyone microwave water? Just refill the kettle
[–]IIOrannisII 7 points8 points9 points 3 months ago (3 children)
Most people in America don't own electric kettles. I've never come across one with imperial measurements.
[–]DesOconnor 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (2 children)
That is bananas.
[–]too_many_rules 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (1 child)
We already have microwaves, and electric kettles take forever at 110V.
[–]Beowoof 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
They do? Mine takes like three minutes for half a liter or so.
[–]fizzlydizzly 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Ever stick a coffee in the microwave to reheat it? A relative learnt this lesson the hard way
[–]zzzac 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (0 children)
do it all the time whats wrong with it?
[–]kineticunt 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I don't own any pots so I always microwave mine, I just use a swinging motion with the tea bag to put it in. Usually just bubbles like crazy and spills a bit
[–]Fappening2k14 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
i was expecting something more like this :D
[–]Campellarino 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Sounds like Darth Vader taking a shit.

I'd like to see a temp probe on the cup so I can see the speed of the energy exchange.
[–]fizzlydizzly 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
It can get super heated so when you put a metal spoon in to stir it, it explodes all over you. I guess you just have never over heated it or something
[–]Cheebuschrist 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
thats some trippy sounding shit
[–]Derpybro 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Sizzle, nice and hot

I was waiting for the nice reaction, like: "Whoooooooa that was freakin amazing bruuuuhhhh!"
