What Happens When You Drop a Red Hot Nickel Ball in Molasses

The red hot nickel ball has destroyed many foes, but it seems to have met its match ... in molasses.

This may be the least dramatic RHNB video yet. No fire, no explosions, no melty destruction. Just a fiercely bubbling cup of molasses making an uncomfortably bowel-y gurgling sound. Aside from the occasional sploosh and splop of molasses over the edge of the cup, this video is surprisingly calm. Although we have to imagine that by the end, that superheated slop was no longer "slow as molasses".
