Ask anyone who has had to drag a heavy object over a large distance – the bigger and heavier the object is, the harder it is to drag. This is because friction increases with size and weight for a solid, due to the contact area between object and surface being increased. When it comes to liquids, however, the picture is more complex. By filming a series of oil droplets on a surface, a group of researchers in the US has found that friction is increased if a droplet is hanging from a surface.

"Invisible Pink Unicorns are beings of great spiritual power. We know this because they are capable of being invisible and pink at the same time. Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them."
