In a crazy game show, contestants have to willingly wade through a swimming pool full of acid to win points for their team. Five of the contestants decide to go through this acid, and when they get to the other side of the pool, none of them are hurt. How is this possible?

So one could say this is a "ci-trick" question.

Lol, I said Citric Acid. Well, I guess that's still correct, since lemonade comes from lemons, and lemons have citric acid.

Posted by sashomarine on Apr 01, 2013

Yep, citric acid is in lemonade, and even if it wasn't, it would still be an acceptable answer.

I just said "it is not a strong acid, maybe vinegar or something similar". Both lemon juice and vinegar have a Ph of about 2 so I think I was on the right track as well. Not sure which I'd rather we through - sticky lemon juice, or smelly vinegar.

Cool teaser. I wonder what show this is?

By the way, Habs, I'm weird and like the smell of vinegar.

Lemonade is not technically an acid, it is an acidic substance. Lemonade is usually around 80% water

Seriously, who uses that emoticon but my dancestor?

@kittygirl
Huh? Trolls have dancestors, not humans.

I said acetic acid, thinking it is vinegar...but upon looking it up, vinegar is only 8% acetic acid, and it is strong enough to burn your skin. So yeah. Fail.
