did you know soap doesn’t really clean your hands it just makes the water molecules smaller so the water can go into smaller crevices in your skin isn’t that the weirdest shit you’ve read today
how the fuck would you make a water molecule smaller that makes no sense do u know how much energy that would require to overcome the electrostatic forces between the protons and the electrons bye
science side of tumblr here:
soap actually works because soap molecules are incredibly hostile and aggressive. when they make contact with dirt particles, they become so unpleasant and verbally abusive that the dirt particles have no choice but to flee, leaving your skin cleaner. this is part of the reason soap is so abrasive and dries your skin out.
I have three doctorates in soapolopsism, and I am here to tell you philistines how soap *really* works, which is by creating a a dialectic between dirt and water, with water taking the transcendentally ideal position of Kant, and dirt maintaining that the absolute ground of being is evinced by their own existence as historically dynamic subjects— that is, the absolute idealism of Hegel. Soap insists on pure pragmatism, everyone is tired and fucks off.
And that’s real.
