Vomit physics

Sick science!

How much do you need to vomit in order to levitate?

That's the kind of thing we've all thought about, right? Minute Physics investigated!

You'd have to vomit around 5 gallons (nearly 20 litres!) of milk per second in order to levitate. That's a lot of milk.

Or you could use special super-dense milk, with lead or mercury in it. Planet Science doesn't recommend that - lead and mercury are poisonous!
