i have a question regarding this.....in the 2nd case when midas touches the duck it turns to a gold duck through the process of rearrangement of protons, neutrons, electrons to form gold atoms...how can you be so sure that after turning into gold the duck will retain its structure...what i mean to say is if the rearrangement of protons, neutrons, electrons happen then its not necessary that the duck after turning into gold will still look like the duck when it was alive, the shape may not be retained, it may look like a cube made of gold or a rock made of gold or anything else made of gold but not necessarily a duck made of gold because the arrangement of atoms will change. i do get why there are gaps but even after the gaps it looks like a duck as per your video, although it is not necessary that it will still look like a duck after the rearrangement of protons, neutrons, electrons has happened. Same thing applies to earth as the earth may not retain the shape of earth after turning to gold as the arrangement of protons, neutrons, electrons changes and forms gold atoms it is not necessary that the earth will look like earth, it may look like a paraboloid made of gold or any other shape but not necessarily the same shape as before being turned into gold by midas. i think you guys might have gone wrong in this particular case. if not then pls explain why?

Third scenario, despite the quadrupling of pressure, the boiling point of pure water will be less than the mentioned 150°C temperature. Now the ocean water will obviously have a higher boiling point. But still won't the oceans start to evaporate till the atmosphere is like saturated with vapors, considering it won't be able to escape due to immense earths gravity. I am not sure how drastic will the evaporation be, but shouldn't it expose some golden lands 😅 I could be wrong or might have missed some important factor.

My initial response to this comment was: "Muscles, that's a good one. Hydration, I already know some things about that, but it would be interesting." *Pirates of the Caribbean 2 flashback* "Gentlemen, what do bees do?" "An explanation of how mammary glands work could be interesting. Blind people don't see because their brains can't process the information sent from their eyes. Eyebrows prevent sweat from getting in the eyes, I wonder what else they do." Yes! Make videos!
