This high-speed video shows a liquid crystal fluid vibrating on a tuning fork. As the surface moves, tiny jets shoot upward, sometimes with sufficient energy that the fluid column is stretched beyond surface tension's ability to keep it intact, resulting in droplet ejection. The jets and surface waves create a mesmerizing pattern of fluid motion. (Video credit: J. Savage)

    It’s amazing that you can make a fancy, “intelligent” sentence out of “the liquid bounces when the fork vibrates.”
