Thursday, May 23rd 2019, 6:43 pm - If you live in a warm climate, you don't need to visit the dollar store to make bubbles.
It's a trick that's well-known to people who live in subtropical areas around the world.
Take a leaf off a Jatropha Curcas, snap its stem and blow. If you're lucky, you'll be treated with a handful of bubbles.
The tree's sap contains up to 40% oil, creating the perfect sticky substance for maximum bubble creation.
The oil can also be processed to produce biodiesel fuel that is compatible with a standard diesel combustion engine.
"This plant is prevalent in place I grew up, Dhading Nepal," Reddit user Tom Lawrence said on the info-sharing site.
"Growing up, we used this to blow bubbles with this, [especially] in monsoon season. According to my parents, its stem ... was used to brush teeth before toothbrushes were a thing."
Nature: It never ceases to amaze us.
