Besides, the TARDIS isn’t smart about Earth colloquialisms. It once told a friend of the Doctor’s that the advertising phrase “Coke adds life” translated as “Class-A drugs bring your ancestors back from the grave”.

The Rainbow Fizz experiment (Acids and Bases)

"Sodium carbonate solution is added to a burette containing a little hydrochloric acid and Universal Indicator. The two solutions react, with effervescence (fizzing), and the liquid in the burette shows a ‘rainbow’ of all the colours of Universal Indicator from red through orange, yellow, green and blue to purple."

Find the method here, with my old friends at the Royal Society of Chemistry.

"It’s that thing when you’re with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it… but it’s a party… and you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining… and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes… but - but not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual… but because… that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s - That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess." - Frances Ha (2012)

Sun-Pumped. The image of Richard J. Tarzaiski, an RCA physicist, is reflected in the parabolic mirror that collects the sun’s rays to power a sun-pumped laser. Such a device, which requires no other power, might be a communications link from a spaceship 50 million miles from the earth  (UPI Photo).
