Man Flushes 240 Pounds of Mercury Down the Toilet and it’s Weirdly Hypnotic

Pop science YouTuber Cody’s Lab has created a viral video of quicksilver being flushed down a toilet that’ll mesmerize you into a hypnotic stupor. The video, which now boasts over 2,000,000 views, shows Cody flushing the liquid metal down a special toilet installed outside his home, with the plumbing connected to an ordinary tin bucket instead of draining into a public septic tank. The mercury stays pretty much solid and showcases a pretty spectacular pattern while being flushed.
