When Canadian scientists get all hot and bothered about a cooling neutron star in the constellation Cassiopeia, their thoughts quickly turn to glasses of superfluid.

"If you could put some of this superfluid in a jar it would flow up the walls of the container and over the edge," stated University of Alberta astronomer Craig Heinke.

Considering that the interior of a neutron star is about as dense as what you'd get if you squeezed the Earth to the size of a golf ball, and the Earth weighs about 5,972,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons, it makes you wonder what kind of pint glasses they use in Canada that can stand up to that sort of pressure? Just because a glass can contain Molson ale doesn't mean that it can stand up to superfluid, and if you did have a glass that would stand up to the pressure of superfluid, wouldn't the properties be completely different from a pint glass or a jar, so different that maybe the superfluid wouldn't flow up the sides? Chew on that Mr. so-called scientist-guy.

The last time I put that much mass in one of my beer glasses it put a hole right through the bottom of the glass, through the bar the glass was sitting on, and through the front porch the bar was standing on. I'm pretty sure it would have kept going straight through to the center of the Earth if I hadn't poured a bottle of champagne on it to extinguish the flames.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
