This Is How the Assassin's Teapot Works

It goes without saying that you should not be trying to murder anyone.

YouTuber Steve Mould often brings us interesting experiments and physics questions like this video that describes what protons taste like and this one on logic gates running on water. Now, he is back with another exciting video on the Assassin's teapot.

This teapot, as its name suggests, allows you to kill someone by pouring drinks out of the same pot that are actually completely different. You then take a sip to illustrate that the drink is completely safe, fooling the poor other guy who has been in fact served a deadly drink. It goes without saying that you should not be using the teapot in this manner.

Instead, you can use it to pour three drinks of different colors. How does it work? According to which hole you block when pouring the liquid the teapot pours from a different section. This means it is carrying three different types of drinks in the same container but in different areas.

How does it manage to do that? How do you pour the drinks into the different sections? How come they don't all get mixed up together? Can you make your very own assassin's teapot? This video answers all these questions and more.
