Did You Know?
While the group is attempting to create a sensory-deprivation chamber, they dissolve 1500 pounds of salt into a kiddie pool of the time period.
To test the specific gravity of the salted water, they see how well an egg floats. During the first test, the egg sinks. During the second test, the egg floats with a large portion sitting above the water line. Were this a real egg, it would be impossible to float that high on top of the water. But as the egg turns on the water, the hole the crew used to remove the insides of the egg can be seen.
Additionally, the pool holds roughly 100 gallons, or 800 pounds, of water (if the pool is 8 feet in diameter and the water is 2 feet deep). Even under boiling conditions, it would be impossible to dissolve much more than about 320 pounds of salt. See more
Honey, we have to trust them. Okay? This is our government. They're on our side.
