Water is actually an odd liquid in many ways. It condenses when cold until just above the freezing point, then starts expanding again.
Hot water freezing faster than cold is known as the Mpemba effect, after the Tanzanian student who in 1963 noticed that hot ice cream mix freezes faster than a cold one, though Aristotle actually first wrote about it. Now a team of physicists from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, led by Xi Zhang, have found evidence that it is the chemical bonds that hold water together that provide the effect.
They propose that when the water molecules are brought into close contact, a natural repulsion between the molecules causes the covalent bonds to stretch and store energy. When the liquid warms up, the hydrogen bonds stretch as the water gets less dense and the molecules move further apart.

The stretching in the hydrogen bonds allows the covalent bonds to relax and shrink somewhat, which causes them to give up their energy. The process of covalent bonds giving up their energy is essentially the same as cooling, and so warm water should in theory cool faster than cold. The teamís calculations suggest that the magnitude of the covalent bond relaxation accounts for the experimental differences in the time it takes for hot and cold water to freeze.

I think that guy just hates QD sitting on other people's heads.

@robybang they used to mean the same thing, because "awe" implied both amazement and fear originally, so both words suggested a huge and terrifying thing. Awful shifted to mean terrible, at the same time terrible shifted from "evil" to what we now know it as. Awesome shifted the other way, to suggest major amazement, and more recently positivity.

The duck is fine with the hot chocoloate most likely because it is coffee. Or tea. Or some other dark-coloured hot beverage. Come on, don't be so certain of something that there is no proof of.

It is a phrase that, as a whole, has a meaning opposite to what its words put together would mean. This is ridiculous, completely grammatically incorrect, and a perfect example of what is wrong with the english language. The phrase is valid, as the purpose of language is to communicate meaning, and everyone knows the meaning of the phrase, but logically, the phrase should mean the opposite of what it does, and someone who understood speech through logical connection of the words would be utterly confused by the phrase if they had not encountered it before.

I think the phrase came into being because it suggests they don't care enough even to say that they couldn't care less, as couldn't implied that they'd try and they don't care enough to try. It makes a sort of sense then, but is still ridiculous.

The chinese zodiac =/= the zodiac of stars (the astronomical zodiac) =/= the astrological zodiac (which is used in horoscopes and such)

The three zodiacs are all based around the constellations that, at some point in the year, are on the opposite side of the sun from us. There are thirteen of these, one only recently found. The chinese zodiac took note of these constellations, but did not have meaning for them, merely used an animal for each. It eventually evolved into the way it is now, with the year of each animal (also I believe the chinese zodiac had some position in religion, but I'm not sure about that). The astrological zodiac is based off of the same constellations, but used the names and symbols from the astronomical zodiac. Each zodiac symbol represents one twelfth of the year, and, while the dates were originally connected to the constellations, but due to the planet's year being not exactly what they had though it was, the dates shifted from the times the actual constellations were behind the sun. The astronomical zodiac is merely the thirteen constellations that pass behind the sun. It is the only one ophiuchus (the serpent bearer) is in, as the others are no longer based on this one.

So many people seem to recognise the robot from Laputa, but nobody recognises/has-heard-of the Ghibli Museum?
