So earlier today, we finished out the pitcher of kool-aid, and made another. When we got home from watching Sin City (fantastic, by the way), we went to the kitchen for some kool-aid. Upon pouring the glass of kool-aid, we realized it was very clear. I thought that maybe I didn't shake it well enough, and that since it was sitting there for hours, it had just kinda solidified in the bottom. We tried stirring it, but it was too clumpy to mix. So we poured that out and cleaned the pitcher, and started a new one. I shook it thoroughly. Very thoroughly. But when I poured it, it was close to clear again. This time stirring DID work, since it hadn't had a chance to get too clumpy. But what the heck could have caused this? The sugar hadn't gotten clumpy or anything. The kool-aid powder seemed perfectly fine. The water doesn't appear to be any different, and tastes just like SW-VA tap water should. So what's the deal? Maybe it's the Spring Equinox, and the force of gravity is higher? If you can stand an egg up on it's end on the Equinox, maybe it could have some effect on the kool aid not wanting to mix? No. Upon some Googling, I found that the equinox was 14 days ago. So how did this happen?
Does anyone know what could have caused this? Maybe some Physics majors or something out there?
