Good to the Last Drop

If you're old enough, you may remember the ketchup commercial to the song of "Anticipation" by Carly Simon about waiting for the extra thick ketchup to pour from the bottle. Have ever tried to pour ketchup at a restaurant and had to slap the bottle or insert a knife to start it flowing?

It was rather clever of MIT to use ketchup to demonstrate its new non-stick coating for the insides of bottles. Scroll down the page at MIT’s Freaky Non-Stick Coating Keeps Ketchup Flowing to see a video of ketchup pouring out without leaving even a drop behind. This reminds me of a chemistry lab partner in college, born of two PhD chemists, who could empty a test tube with not a single drop left at the bottom of the tube.
