I still hate CFL bulbs, but I am happy to now know why they take forever to 'boot up' - and the temperature differential fascinated me. I actually thought the bubbles pretty good; I don't remember Czerski mentioning the sandwich bit, or how to make them last longer - unless I've forgotten?

I don't remember her mentioning the sandwich part either, but I do remember her explanation for the water-attracting/water-repelling sides of molecules being pretty similar.

(And now I am chuffed that I did retain some information other than the thing about the ducks after all. Tho, the ducks were probably my favourite in Czerski's book.)
What about force an egg to fit into a bottle by creating a suction using heat...?

That was in Storm in a Teacup. :)
Ah! I still have to get that one...I seem to remember there were a lot of people here on BL raving about it...
The "lot of people" were members of the Flat Book Society reading it for one of our group reads. :)
