“Chili represents your three states of matter:  solid, liquid, and eventually gas”

A popular line about chili was said by American actor John Goodman, playing the role of Dan Conner on the television sitcom Roseanne, “Don’t Make Me Over” that first aired on May 5, 1992:

“Chili represents your three states of matter-- solid, liquid, and eventually gas.”

“Three states of matter” is often written as “three stages of matter.”


Wikipedia: Roseanne
Roseanne is an American sitcom that was broadcast on ABC from October 18, 1988, to May 20, 1997. Lauded for its realistic portrayal of the average American family, the series stars Roseanne Barr, and revolves around the Conners, an Illinois working-class family. The series reached #1 in the Nielsen ratings, becoming the most watched television show in the United States from 1989 to 1990. The show remained in the top four for six of its nine seasons, and in the top twenty for eight seasons.

I just learned that chili represents all three states of matter (solid, liquid, and eventually gas). What other foods have unique chemical properties? (self.shittyaskscience)
