Everyone knows that cats play by their own rules, even when it comes to science. Are they solid? Yes. Liquid? Yes, too. Here are 19 examples of how cats can take the shape they want, regardless of physical rules. Bemorepanda collected some funny pictures for you.
The most real liquid cat
"My cat leaked to the floor"
"I have 5 liters of a cat"
Slice of Processed Cat Cheese
"My cat's mood is to melt while lying on the carpet."
This is some otherworldly creature
Maybe not quite liquid yet, but definitely melting
"Yes, it is busy here, put the spice in another jar."
Once it fits, it means it's convenient
"My mom and her melted cat"
"Today she decided to be an egg."
"Something is leaking from my sink"
"I had to look at my couch twice before I figured it out."
As it gets warmer, watch your cats and make sure they don't melt!
It fits perfectly there
"The dough seems to have risen enough and will soon run away."
He overfilled this bowl with himself
Marie Curie (1876-1934), a Polish-French experimental scientist, became known worldwide for her scientific discoveries in the field of physics and chemistry, which played an essential role in the scientific revolution. And her merits did not go unnoticed by the scientific community - Marie Curie became the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize (for research on radioactivity), and the first person in history to receive the Nobel Prize twice. In addition, Maria was the first female professor at the University of Paris. From the above, it is easy to understand that she had extraordinary talent and thinking. And this at a time when the opinion of women was not listened to, which made her career even more impressive.
On science and life from the first woman in history to receive the Nobel Prize
Such outstanding personalities are always of great interest, so if you want to know more about Mary's way of thinking, not only as a scientist but also as a person, read the quotes that Bemorepanda has collected below. Moreover, she deserved it thanks to her discoveries that saved millions of lives and changed the world for the better.

2. "It's always good to marry your best friend."
3. "I was taught that the path of progress was neither quick nor easy."
4. “Radium should not enrich anyone. It's an element, it belongs to the whole world."
5. “Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, self-confidence. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that it must be achieved."
6. "First principle: never allow yourself to be overwhelmed by people or events."
7. “The older a person gets, the more he feels that he needs to enjoy the present moment, comparable to a state of grace.”
8. "Be less interested in people and more interested in ideas."
9. "In science, we should be interested in things, not people."

11. “Decide. Have fun and get to work! The world is waiting for you to reveal your gift!”
12. "You will never make me believe that women are made to walk on stilts."
13. “Pierre Curie came to visit me and showed a simple and sincere sympathy for my student life. He soon got into the habit of telling me about his dream of an existence entirely devoted to scientific research, and he asked me to share this life.”
14. “My husband and I were so closely connected by our affection and common work that we spent almost all the time together.”
15. “I was only fifteen when I graduated from high school, and I always won first place in my class. Fatigue from growth and study forced me to rest in the countryside for almost a year. Then I returned to my father in Warsaw, hoping to teach in free schools.”
16. "A scientist in his laboratory is not just a technician: he is also a child, faced with natural phenomena that amaze him like fairy tales."
17. "I am one of those who think that science has great beauty."
18. "You should never be afraid of what you do when it's right."
19. “There is nothing to be afraid of in life, it only needs to be understood. Now is the time to understand more in order to fear less.”
20. “All my life, new views of nature made me rejoice like a child.”
21. “You never notice what has been done, you can only see what is yet to be done.”
22. “During 1894, Pierre Curie wrote letters to me that seem to me admirable in their form. None of them were very long, as he was in the habit of expressing himself briefly, but they were all written in a spirit of sincerity and with an obvious desire to make the one whom he wanted to have as a companion know him for who he is.
23. “Sometimes I had to stir the boiling mass for days on end with a heavy iron rod almost the same size as myself. By the end of the day, I was exhausted. On other days, on the contrary, the work consisted in the smallest and most delicate fractional crystallization in an attempt to concentrate the radium.
24. “You can only analyze the data you have. Be strategic about what to collect and how to store it.”
25. “More and more I feel the need for a house and a garden.”
26. “But humanity also needs dreamers for whom the selfless development of an enterprise is so exciting that it becomes impossible for them to devote their concern to their own material gain.”
27. “It was like a new world opened up before me, the world of science, which I was finally allowed to know with all freedom.”
28. “Thus perished the hope based on the miraculous being who thus ceased to exist. In the office he was never destined to return to, the water buttercups he had brought from the village were still fresh.”
29. "I am one of those who think, like Nobel, that humanity will derive more good from new discoveries than evil."
30. “In 1903, I defended my doctoral dissertation and received a degree. At the end of the same year, Becquerel, my husband and I were awarded the Nobel Prize for the discovery of radioactivity and new radioactive elements.
31. "In the course of my research, I had to investigate not only simple compounds, salts and oxides, but also a huge number of minerals."
32. "The death of my husband, which came immediately after the discoveries with which his name is associated, was perceived by the public, and especially by scientific circles, as a national misfortune."
33. “I don’t have a dress other than the one I wear every day. If you'd be so kind as to give it to me, please keep it practical and dark so that I can wear it later to go to the lab."
34. "The first experiments on the biological properties of radium were successfully carried out in France with samples from our laboratory, while my husband was still alive."
35. "My experiments have proved that the radiation of uranium compounds can be measured with accuracy under certain conditions, and that this radiation is an atomic property of the element uranium."
36. “If I see something vital around me, it is precisely that spirit of adventurism that seems indestructible and akin to curiosity.”
37. “I have the best husband you could ever dream of; I never imagined that I would find someone like him. He is a real gift from heaven, and the more we live together, the more we love each other.”
38. "I sincerely wish that some of you will continue this scientific work and keep in your ambitions the determination to make a permanent contribution to science."
39. “Sometimes my courage leaves me, and I think that I should quit my job, live in the countryside and devote myself to gardening. I also don't know if I can live without a lab even if I write science books."
40. “In the study of highly radioactive substances, special precautions must be taken if you want to make accurate measurements. Various items that are used in the chemical laboratory and those used for experiments in physics become radioactive in a short time and act on photographic plates through black paper. Dust, the air in the room, and clothes, everything becomes radioactive.”
41. "After all, science is essentially international, and it is only because of the lack of historical meaning that national qualities are attributed to it."
42. “We must not allow ourselves to believe that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gears, although these mechanisms have their own beauty. I also don't believe that the spirit of adventurism is in danger of disappearing from our world."
43. “Unfamiliar with Paris, I was lost in the big city, but the feeling that I live there alone, taking care of myself without anyone's help, did not depress me at all. If sometimes I felt lonely, then my usual state of mind was peace and great moral satisfaction.
44. “You cannot hope to build a better world without improving individuals. To this end, each of us must work towards our own improvement and at the same time bear a common responsibility for all of humanity, our special duty being to help those to whom we think we can be of most use.”
45. “I have often been asked, especially by women, how I can combine family life with a scientific career.
45. “I have often been asked, especially by women, how I can combine family life with a scientific career. Well, it wasn't easy."
46. “When radium was discovered, no one knew that it would be useful in hospitals. The work was purely scientific. And this is proof that scientific work should not be considered in terms of its direct usefulness.
47. “In 1906, just at the moment when we finally abandoned the old laboratory in the barn where we were so happy, there was a terrible catastrophe that took my husband from me and left me alone to raise our children and at the same time continue our research work.
48. "Stability can only be achieved with inactive matter."
49. “Pierre Curie voluntarily exposed his hand to radium for several hours. This resulted in a burn-like injury that developed gradually and took several months to heal. Henri Becquerel accidentally received a similar burn as a result of carrying a glass tube containing radium salt in his vest pocket. He came to tell us about this pernicious effect of radium, exclaiming both admiringly and annoyedly: "I love him, but I have a complaint about him."
50. “We believe that the substance that we have extracted from pitchblende contains a metal that has not yet been discovered, related to bismuth in its analytical properties. If the existence of this new metal is confirmed, we propose to call it polonium, after the name of the country of origin of one of us."
51. “Chemically, radium differs little from barium; the salts of these two elements are isomorphic, while the radium salts are usually less soluble than the barium salts.
52. “All my thoughts were focused on my studies, which, especially at the beginning, was difficult. In fact, I was not sufficiently prepared to take the course in physical sciences at the Sorbonne, because, despite my best efforts, I did not manage to get in Poland the same complete training as the French students attending the same course.
53. "The first time I met Pierre Curie in the spring of 1894 ... A Polish physicist whom I knew and who was a great admirer of Pierre Curie once invited us together to spend an evening with him and his wife."
54. “I tried various experiments described in treatises on physics and chemistry, and the results were sometimes unexpected. At times I was encouraged by a small but unexpected success; at other times I was driven to utter despair by accidents and setbacks caused by my inexperience."
55. “If it takes a hundred years, it would be a pity, but I will not stop working for this as long as I live.”
56. "I will devote only a few lines to expressing my belief in the importance of science - it is through this daily pursuit of knowledge that man has risen to the unique position that he occupies on Earth, and his strength and well-being are constantly increasing."
57. “Certain bodies ... become luminous when heated. Their luminosity disappears after a while, but the ability to glow again under the influence of heat returns to them under the influence of a spark, and also under the influence of radium.
58. "The various reasons we have listed lead us to believe that the new radioactive substance contains a new element, which we propose to call radium."
59. "This means that we have here a completely separate kind of chemistry, for which at present we use an electrometer, and not a balance, and which we may well call the chemistry of the imponderable."
60. "A sensitive plate, an ionized gas, a fluorescent screen are actually receivers of another kind of energy, chemical energy, ionic energy ... light energy."
