You can't kill stuff
What about molecules, though? Where do they go? Check out this video that explains it by clicking on the picture below.
Pile of stuff
Finally, we’re on to something I really get…The Conservation of Stuff. At least I get that stuff doesn’t ever go away. I’m into recycling. In fact, that’s one of my jobs at home. Sammy doesn’t do diddly-squat, but I recycle. I get all the newspapers and magazines together and put them in the recycling container. I add the dog food cans, plastic containers from the store, and other recyclables. Every other week, I take the container out to the curb and somebody picks it up. Hmm. Where does it go? I did some research on the Internet and found out that it goes to different places where is made into new products. Paper and metal go off to mills to be made into new products. Plastic gets shredded and melted to form new plastic products. Glass gets crushed and heated to make new products. Even clothes that aren’t in such great shape get shredded and processed to make new material. So nothing is wasted.
Experiment on your own
Try it yourself. Here is an experiment that helps you prove that matter is neither created nor destroyed. A little whipped cream and vinegar can prove this. First, look at the experiment as it is done on the video below, then get the containers, vinegar, and whipped cream to do it yourself. It’s so amazing that even Remi’s jaw would drop. Well, maybe not.
