November FCP stories

November stories at the main FCP site: (1) Caught in a snow avalanche, you can avoid being buried by immediately inflating a special balloon that surrounds your head and torso. (2) The Kaye effect, in which a falling stream of shampoo can leap up from the mound it forms on a hard surface, has finally been explained. (3) The sounds of “snap, crackle, and pop” made by Rice Krispies breakfast cereal when milk is poured into the bowl. (4) Pub trick: can you lift a shot glass (containing liquid) with just your palm and without using your fingers?
