37 thought on “Pythagoras Cup (Greedy Cup) filled with Mercury”

  1. I thought the mercury would stay put all the way to the top dam I was wrong. On my first use of the cup and told not to be greedy I’d fill it to about 25mm from the top but upon seeing that gold blob in the middle my ocd says drown that lump and I’d go without as it’s now on my shoes.

  2. Wouldn't the amount of mercury in the displace more or the same volume as the extra wine would occupy at the top? Not really getting more wine, just a higher fill?

  3. I love the smile he has starting on his lips, when he's already thinking about the words he's going to say next, about the students drinking mercury and poisoning themselves.
