How To: Put out a candle with an empty glass

Put out a candle with an empty glass

Amaze and amuse your friends with this fun magic trick! Using only vinegar and baking soda, which you may remember from some of the bottle-bomb-making videos elsewhere on the site, you can create carbon dioxide which, since it's heavier than air, can be used to invisibly fill a glass and then be poured onto a candle, extinguishing it without looking like it's done anything at all! No word on how long the gas will stay in the glass, so set this one up right before you want to do it and then hide the chemicals!
