Not a joke, but interesting. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it.

Just as amazing is the same type of action that certain liquid polymers will perform. Polymers are created when molecules link up in a certain way. A liquid polymer will actually flow uphill. If you have a beaker almost full of a liquid polymer, you can start pouring it out, and the liquid will continue to flow out of the beaker even after it is set upright. It will flow up the inside of the beaker, then over the rim and down the outside. It will continue until the beaker is empty or the flow is cut off by some means.
