Physicists twist water into knots with 3D printer

Nature: More than a century after the idea was first floated, physicists have finally figured out how to tie water in knots in the laboratory. Creating a knot in a fluid bears little resemblance to tying a knot in a shoelace. The entire three-dimensional (3D) volume of a fluid within a confined region, such as a vortex, must be twisted. Physicists Dustin Kleckner and William Irvine have now created a knotted vortex using a miniature version of an aeroplane wing built with a 3D printer. The researchers submerged their tiny wings in a tank of water and gave it a sudden acceleration to create a knotted structure. This research was conducted at the Irvine Lab at University of Chicago.

The Last Words of Famous Suicide Notes:

  • “I feel certain that I’m going mad again. I feel we can’t go thru another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices.” - Virginia Woolf.
  • “The act of taking my own life is not something I am doing without a lot of thought. I don’t believe that people should take their own lives without deep and thoughtful reflection over a considerable period of time. I do believe strongly, however, that the right to do so is one of the most fundamental rights that anyone in a free society should have. For me much of the world makes no sense, but my feelings about what I am doing ring loud and clear to an inner ear and a place where there is no self, only calm. Love always, Wendy.” - Wendy O. Williams.
  • “The future is just old age and illness and pain…. I must have peace and this is the only way.” - James Whale.
  • “To Harald, may God forgive you and forgive me too but I prefer to take my life away and our baby’s before I bring him with shame or killing him, Lupe.” - Lupe Velez.
  • “No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun – for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax – This won’t hurt.” - Hunter S. Thompson.
  • “Frances and Courtney, I’ll be at your altar. Please keep going Courtney, for Frances for her life will be so much happier without me. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU.” - Kurt Cobain.
  • “When I am dead, and over me bright April
    Shakes out her rain drenched hair,
    Tho you should lean above me broken hearted,
    I shall not care.
    For I shall have peace.
    As leafey trees are peaceful
    When rain bends down the bough.
    And I shall be more silent and cold hearted
    Than you are now.” - Sarah Teasdale.
  • “Dear World, I am leaving you because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool - good luck.” - George Sanders.
  • “I must end it. There’s no hope left. I’ll be at peace. No one had anything to do with this. My decision totally.” - Freddie Prinze.
  • “They tried to get me - I got them first!” - Vachel Lindsay.
