Tequila Diamonds

Check it out fellas, now you can propose to your lady with a round of margaritas. This might be the best scientific discovery ever.

That’s right, they heated tequila to 1,470ºF, breaking down its molecular structure resulting in an almost perfect diamond film. Among its many uses, the film can act as silicon in computer chips.
