Placing a test tube into a beaker of glycerol can make it turn invisible! How? A trick of the light. You can still see a transparent test tube placed in water as light passing through the different materials is bent & refracted. But if you switch the water for something with the same refractive properties as the glass of the test tube, the light passes straight through without refracting, thus appearing invisible. Learn how to perform this scientific magic trick at home in this video: http://youtu.be/UIovk_LgHRA

There are more than forty thousand Chinese restaurants across the country—nearly three times the number of McDonald’s outlets. There is one in Pinedale, Wyoming (population 2,043), and one in Old Forge, New York (population 756); Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania (population 1,085), has three. Most are family operations, staffed by immigrants who pass through for a few months at a time, living in houses and apartments that have been converted into makeshift dormitories. The restaurants, connected by Chinese-run bus companies to New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, make up an underground network—supported by employment agencies, immigrant hostels, and expensive asylum lawyers—that reaches back to villages and cities in China, which are being abandoned for an ideal of American life that is not quite real.
