Make Glowing Water

It’s easy to make water glow very brightly under a black light. You can use the water as an ingredient in slime, crystals, or other projects to make them glow-in-the-dark.

    You got a whole glass of dye from the tip of a high lighter pen . . . ? No really, what did you use?

    I am hoping you have an open scientific mind. I know gases and liquids can be separated with heat and pressure. What I am saying is everyone applies the heat to the liquid, and the liquid boils, extracting added chemical combinations. Gasoline has defragmentation to separate the chemicals. None of these processes can produce a change that I first produced to gasoline, some 30 years ago. Gasoline’s lowest boiling temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Ambient temperature would require it to be hotter than that, for gasoline to become a gas. I have created a white vapor from gasoline, not by applying the heat to the liquid, but applying the liquid to the heat, spraying a fine mist of liquid onto a preset temperature (600 degrees Fahrenheit). Yes heat transfer happens first, when I do this, but due to the fine mist droplets, the applied heat is assumed by the droplets, faster than the droplets can boil, and perform a change of state from a liquid to a gas. This means I can take the fine mist liquid droplets to any temperature above the liquid’s know boiling temperature. I have found the boiling temperatures of atoms inside the liquid. I created a white vapor from gasoline and got a non flammable liquid at the same time. The white vapor has twice the power that gasoline has, having tested it on 7 different vehicles, and 2 Dynamometers. I had one smog test and got zero parts per million hydrocarbon reading from the white vapor. I used clean dry rags held over the exhaust pipe running the 7 vehicles, and after several tests, running the white vapor, the rag smelled like freshly ironed clothes. 
    To further prove what I say I sprayed a fine mist of distilled water onto a heat source. The temperature is between 212 and 230 degrees Fahrenheit, where with a combustible gas leak detector I detect a flammable gas from the distilled water vapor.
    The same basic thing happens to snow when a large amount of heat is applied to the small snowflakes. The small snowflakes go from a solid matter to a gas, and by pass the liquid state, like I have done to liquid.
    See it happen on my You Tube Channel, Bill Kendrick. I have 3 videos, one on gasoline and two on distilled water. This can be done to any liquid. Yes it can only be separating atoms, or groups of atoms.

    You need a blacklight/uv ray that you can find in stores.

    can you drink it?

    Actually, the effect you see here is called fluorescence. It is due to a chemical component added in the highlighter ink called fluorescein. As with phosphorescence, which is a different process, releasing energy over a longer time period, as fluorescence releases its energy almost instantly (nanosecond timescale) compared to phosphorescence which can last hours. Both of these processes don't produce their own light, they require a source, as opposed to chemoluminescence, which does its own.

    i cannot stand people like you with no sense of humor whatsoever. Maybe if you were smart and knew context you would know that is was a joke and obviously everyone but you knew that. Don't ruin somebody's joke just because you cannot understand it.
