Pitch-Tar Drop

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I give you the most boring science experiment ever: The Pitch-Tar Drop.



Earlier this month the decades long experiment came to an exciting, yet expected conclusion – it finally broke off.

The project leaders were quoted as saying “We were all so excited”, “It’s been such a great talking point, with colleagues eager to investigate the mechanics of the break, and the viscosity of the pitch.”

While the impact to the broader scientific community is yet to be determined, one thing is clear: you can make a living for decades by watching tar slowly ooze through a funnel.
