Acid vs Lava- Testing Liquids That Melt Everything

Most people I asked predicted the wrong winner here. Go check out the new CrunchLabs Roblox game where you can build rockets with your friends and fly to distant planets to defeat the evil Fat Tail!

Here is where you can find the details on how to win a platinum ticket by beating the game-

    Used cars for sale - slightly acidified/melted/crushed but with GREAT history.

    William is 100% the type of person to enter a video unannounced and I legitimately couldn’t tell if he actually did until everyone else showed up

    What a thrill ride this video has been, Mark! The breakdown of the experiments was fascinating and your humor really added to the experience. A very innovative and exciting way of presenting science! Looking forward to the next showdown at CrunchLabs. 👌🚀🔬
  • Two videos in a few days. What a treat! Thank you to Mark and to the whole entire team. I'm sure there are a lot of people who help make these happen. Happy Thanksgiving!
  • The real problem here is that Nigel didn’t pick the correct acids… He pick all the strong but still fairly safe acids. Had he put the safety “not last” this would have been a complete wipe imo.
  • Now this is peak big kid content. Makes me feel like I'm back on the playground. Thanks for this, Mark.
  • I still can’t believe you can do all that to a diamond! I never would have guessed how tough they are..I’m still too scared to try it myself though 😅
  • @user-nc2jq6eq8g
    he literally just invited all the safety third members together to destroy stuff. how fitting.
  • @kingofplayer2
    Honestly some of the best content on the platform when engineer YouTubers get together to do whatever shenanigans they feel like.
  • I've never actually seen acid at word before!

    And I'm amazed nobody got hurt. None of that looked safe.

    Great video 👍
  • @WheatleyCrab
    I like how instead of specifically designing something to thrash the competition he just rented a steamroller

    I've never been more surprised that Mark Rober, a person known for bringing a nuke to a gunfight, brought another nuke to another gunfight
  • @mellow3995
    Nigel used a weaker acid solution because he knew they'd be keeping the cars they'd destroyed at the end, truly a mad genius
  • What a line up for a video. Mark Rober is easily one of my favorite content creators. I love the editing style and music choice :)
  • Any time these guys all get together, you know it's going to be massively entertaining!
  • @MrFishBlood
    Way to give yourself a HUGE advantage Mark! You're not stuck with acid or lava as your only tool of destruction, you get to tailor your method to your target.
  • @user-wv2js7iw8u
    I love the glitter bombs and other pranks, those are goated, but as a big fan of engineering/science YT this held a special place in my heart seeing all my favorite creators that I already watch collab together. Fantastic stuff guys.Used cars for sale - slightly acidified/melted/crushed but with GREAT history.
  • @justin9202
    So fun fact about the anvil mark was using. Thats a common one sold by harbor freight, they do not harden their anvil's work surface like most normal anvils would have. Therefore the diamond was actually harder than the soft steel. While diamond is harder than regular soft steel it would be much more of a challenge if they tried denting a hardened steel anvil
  • @Seed
    1:48 Mark’s hand wash detector is coming in handy!

    I do not know why we all needed this video, but we definitely did. Thank you, Mr. Rober. For always providing premium content, even when we didn't know we wanted it.
