"I will be turning the bananas to ash" is a sentence that no god, merciful or otherwise, intended anyone to say.
What happened to iron ?
Excellent sound design tips for those who need glassy sounds but don't want to break a ton of glass in their studios lol
There is old joke about supposed diet of ice hockey players eating banana peels...
I tried this experiment when I was in high school, on my own. Never finished it, of course, I got to the point where I added calcium hydroxide to get sodium hydroxide but the drying residue was near nowhere enough, so I gave up from there. I still have that tertiary butanol left..
Absolutely amazing process. Thanks for taking us along for the ride!
This is why I used to love chemistry class
Your videos need to be way more popular and deserves so much more exposure. You are easily one of the best most widely varied scientist PLcliprs I’ve watched over the years, you and Nile Red. Awesome content as always Cody! Love going back and watching and rewatching your older videos!
I’ve only ever eaten the peel of a banana a handful of times, not the most pleasant eating experience, but I’ve had worse. Carolina Reaper Beef Jerky was probably the worst. Way too hot for normal human consumption, perfect for masochists though.
God, my science teachers all throughout my schooling should’ve just shown your videos (granted they’d need a time machine) because they all sucked, except for you, Mr. Vandergrift!
1:21 KITTY GET YOUR BUTT AWAY FROM THE BANANA Wow I didn’t think that I would say that sentence or anything close to it when I woke up this morning. I miss my cat.
Coming soon: Extracting truth from the teeth of politicians.
That was awesome and it makes me feel like an idiot. Seriously only a smart guy can make this kind of thing happen. I am not that guy. I am a good business guy though. . . .LOL
I find it interesting that the entire time of condensing that water has no effect on the potassium but once in metal form it is highly reactive. Great video.
Me, at the grocery store in about 10 minutes: "I require all of your expired bananas"
I imagine if he was in breaking bad it would be codys drug lab.
Duh. It's only radioactive because, your changing the chemicals make of it....stick a Giga Counter on a Banana. You get no radioactive
That's not how this works, chemical processes don't mess with nuclei so they can't make non-radioactive substances radioactive. The potassium is just a lot less concentrated in a banana.
Is this the Canadian version of Breaking Bad?
what is he trying to prove. Life in Canada is so boring you need to do useless experiments to kill time? Got to kill 8 months of winter somehow. Why doesn't he just play and watch hockey.
Every year that you grow a crop on the same land, the mineral and vitamin content will slowly decrease as they no longer and haven't done for years allowed a plot to rest, continuous crops year in and out will end with either fruit that is of no value to us or the plants will lower the amount of fruit it produces to try and keep the required vitamins and minerals that it thinks is needed, even though the fruit no longer has seeds in it. It's also why a piece of fruit when I was young had over nine to fifteen times the vitamins and minerals they have today. It will only get worse over time and is why what the amount of vitamins and minerals stated don't now match what they did when that test was done.
this content makes me crave banana i fckin love those bananas why?!!!!
So this is how they figure out how much “stuff” is in our food ?
Thanks ! Bang ! Bang !
eat the peels for more potassium OR... Pig out on dried bananas and use the peels for potassium metal :)
Why is he in snow? Why not in Spring?
fuck yeah give this man a like
Why is no one talking about the fact that he just told us bananas are radioactive
8:15 - Bんnnωnw
I was just reading a soapmaking diy treatise, and they said that ash from banana trunks and fronds is an exceptional source of potash.
Out of everything in this video, the main thing that has stuck with me is how much I want a dehydrator to make fruit chips
Next episode: Cody's Lab extracts cocaine from the original 1885 Coca-Cola recipe
Never thought I'd hear "banana" and "charcoal" consecutively in a sentence, but I'm so glad I have.
“Stop eating banana after reading this article and here is why”
Try and avocado next
Now turn the potassium back into a banana.
This video was bananas. 🍌
How does one get radiation from bananas?? Is this mans a god?
20:35 he holds the soul of a banana
Wonderfull job !!!
you need to do this with avacodos cause im pretty sure they have more potassium
This is why people who eat a lot of bananas are literally mad. Just look at those extreme vegans, nuff said.
id be mad too if i never got to eat a big juicy steak again.
great, now bananas aren't going to get through airport security.
Love you cody!
i love this channel so much
people in the comment be like ohhhhh their are people in africa who... shut the hell up
That's why where potassium name comes from pottashuim or pot ash uim
Before you burnt it, were you 100% sure that the burning would not potentially carry away some potassium? I guess no potassium-containing gases occur but maybe very fine particles could be carried by the airflow?
how can I extract heumic acid from .. 1- Leonardite. 2- black water from city waste.... sludge.
That's some high quality slowmo at the end 😨
Cody you still Extract Americium-241 from smoke detectors to see how much radioactively it is
Change your name to .. DR STONE.
ABSOLUTLEY brilliant thanks for the share I think you done more than well 💪👍
"Turns out bananas are hard to burn" So we should build houses out of bananas!
Hours of work lead to the best word: *nice* That ladies and gentlemen is what I call time well spent.
Now, show us how to extract gold from goldfish.
When life gives you bananas!
Chemistry was never so interesting.
Extract iron from blood
You seem to be doing a lot better codes. Good to have you back.
Next video: Extracting Cesium from Sunflowers 😂😂😂
Thanks, I find this video appealing
What would happen if you ate pure potassium
One of the smartest people on PLclip, and you can’t spell banana.
nice... you are the real Breaking Bad, but for now you are yet Breaking Banana.
Is that a w i t c h c r a f t
This is bananas...
i like the sound of sh.
Classic Codyslab. Really interesting video. Thank you!
8:15 that’s the best string of words I have ever heard
Now let's reverse it
I don't know how I ended up here but I am glad I did! Well done sir!
How comes the potassium reacted with the water in the pond but not the water you used for transfer and such?
I was told spinne potatoes had more potassium, maybe a future vid?
after watching this video, now I'm craving for banana chips, some chocolate fondue, and some white powder i won't mention
Fairly confident the words "banana flesh ash water" have never been uttered in that arrangement before this video
I feel very informed and uneducated at the same time
breaking bad bananas
So, you're telling me, that a "banana bomb" from "worms" is a real thing?
Walter White's teacher!
I wonder what happens if anyone sits ont that chair😂
Can same thing happens with coffee bean?
You are literally Rust...
Now that I think of it I think my science teacher In 7th grade said you couldn’t extract the potassium from a banana but it’s kind of clear it can be
sounded like a 38. lol
-shoves firecracker inside banana -paints banana gray -lights it and throws it into the water “See. I did it too”
My monkey brain is going OFF right now looking at this video.
Nobody: Pepole in math problems:*whole vid*
I love dryed banan snacks!
Heisenberg making breakfast
So when thrown in water, what did happen to the Potassium?
Little do we all know Cody is the biggest hoarder on 🌎 lolol jk 🤣😍🤣.
Cody be like: I used potassium to make the potassium
Cody just made the Banana grenade weapon from Worms game irl
Wow! That's bananas!
this is cool. I like that. fucking weird tho.
I would have been interested to see you test the banana fruit and peel charcoal with a geiger counter separately to see which is more radioactive. Or to test the potassium itself once you've extracted it.
“That is not how banana is spelled lmao” Any askers?
