View Full Version : Soaking Chalk in Milk Results

So i decided to do the little experiment today.
I removed the wrapper then soaked a piece of triangle chalk in milk for exactly ten minutes and ten microwaved it for 1:30. Then I took a screw driver and murdered out the inside a little bit to get rid of the hard "shell" that formed.
And now my microwave has a slight stench of ass.

I can honestly say in my mind I think that it is a little different. It might be just cuz I heated it but it does have a different feel to it.
Try it if you want, see what you think.

That quote reminds me of this classic at about 2:10 of this long cut.:D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok81XE4QWpk&feature=related

I wonder if soy milk will work.

I'm not sure soy milk is the best choice...what about fat-free buttermilk???

I can't imagine what you hope milk-soaking will do to improve the chalk, but I have to say that the idea just cracks me up. :)

Like Neil said i don't think the milk soaked through. Especially with only ten minutes of soaking. It was probably just the microwaving part that made it feel different. Also the milk wouldnt have had to have gotten to the center to see results because that only part of it I have used was on the mere edge.
Whatever it was though I am almost certain it played different.
and I would never raise a homosexual microwave, even though I eat out of it

Has anyone thought of using a pressure cooker, put your milk and chalk in it, and cook that S.O.B. ? That way it would pressurize the milk into the chalk and if the chalk doesn't dissolve or shrink in size, you can put it in the oven dry it and see what the results would be. :D

Intentions----> joke, but a thought I got looking at my parent's pressure cooker lol

the heating from the microwave alone draws out moisture. That's the basis of how a microwave works....it heats up the liquids.
Not sure how the milk changed the situation....changing the temp so quickly, probably caused the smell....lol =)
This was definitely entertaining!

is there that much of a problem with chalk that a person would find the need to soak and microwave it...

i say dip your oreos in milk. let the chalk alone...

If you used an energy drink instead of milk, would it give you a stronger break?
Just wondering. ;)

How about running the chalk and milk through a blender, then pour the mess into an ice cube tray to dry. If you're going to spend time on chalk alchemy, you might as well try everything. :deadhorse:

They should combine this thread with the one about baking chalk. Perhaps, someone can even write their own chalk cookbook.

That's the funniest damn thing I've heard all day!!!! Good thing I wasn't drinking milk because it would be all over the keyboard.

You said you removed the paper. Did you scrape off the glue that held the paper on? I strongly suggest that the chalk did not absorb the milk. If it had soaked through to the center, and you then heated it up that much, I think it would have exploded due to the steam pressure inside it. You might have to try this test again!

I think it need to be soaked for a couple of days, then left on a sunny window to dry.

Will likely take a week to fully dry. LEt us know how it tastes.

:D I think we are on to something here, it would dehydrate the chalk and would have the same effect as the oven. But is this with or without the milk?

What if we adapted it to milk duds. Soak the chalk into the tip and then press it. Would the chalk be infused? I think chalk infused tips woould be the way of the future. I'm bored at work and this thread is too entertaining.

If that's the case, why not just glue a piece of chalk on a shaft and play with that?

I don't think you would get the same play as infused leather. The chalk would have to be as dense as a phenolic tip. JMO.

Well to all the people saying to add orange juice and red bull to the chalk, the thinking behind this is that chalk contains calcium the way it is (I think) and if you add milk to it, this could "alter" the formula, possibly making it better.

So I'm completely insane for doing this lol

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billiards#ChalkCue tip chalk is not actually the substance typically referred to as "chalk" (generally calcium carbonate, also known as calcite or carbonate of lime), but any of several proprietary compounds, with a silicate base.

Along those same lines, maybe you could mash up some old firecrackers and then "infuse" your tip with those. It would make your break... dare I say it... explosive? :groucho:

That's a pretty good Wikipedia article. So actually IF you really want to alter the properties then I suppose that one could buy a gross of Masters for like $20 and start experimenting by crushing it into powder and adding stuff to it. Try everthing in the house :-)

Build your self a little compression jig so you can get the chalk back into a useable shape and there you go.

Since the Blue Diamond is like $15 a cube???? there is obviously a lot of room between $20 a gross and that to make a killing in the chalk biz.

Okay, I'm not even gonna start with the why's and what-for's and how-to's of "milking your chalk" or "re-milking your chalk" or "de-milking your chalk" or "super-duper milkifying your chalk" ...

But I will ask, if you are telling me your "microwave has a slight stench of ass", why the hell would I try it for myself? You just told me your microwave stinks, why would I do that to my microwave? I don't want it to smell like ASS! LOL :rotflmao1: That's like going out to dinner and telling your date "Ewww, this tastes gross! Here try it" :lmao:. Does the chalk smell like ass too?

Gotta know, do you live with anybody? If so, what did they think of your experiment? LOL

ya'll is talkin bout some funny $hit. this thread is nuts.

Chalk is supposed to be dry and not a trace of lubrication in it, not even finger oils. Haven't you ever heard of people putting saliva in the chalk to jar the other guy? What about rubbing the oils off their forehead and onto the balls during racking? Pool and lubrication don't go fellas. Except when nits are getting bent over with lots of KY.

Humidity, dirt, and excessive body oils in combination with your equipment is undesirable in everyway. Milk has saturated fat in it and just plain don't belong anywhere near the pool table, unless your pool hall is a restaurant like mine.

Stick with the milk and tip invention. It works. I've made my own compressed tips and experimented even to the point of having my theory, but milk and chalk? No sir. Hah uh. Leave that one to the chemists.

Want to experiment? Why don't you experiment with different drills on the table and when you've completely exhausted that, try drinkin' some milk and see if that works. ;)

One of the best threads ever! I've been laughing my ass off for a while now!
JB, it seemed like you were hinting at doing something like what drug dealers do. But with chalk... I think someone needs to look into John's history here :)

20 years ago master chalk was very rare in my country. My friend walk close to the shore and he accidentaly dropped chalk in the water.
He immediately jump and save chalk, and let for couple days to dry.
He claim that was the best piece of chalk he ever try :D

So if someone is close to the coast, drop that pre flag box and make money ^^

Cost of a new microwave (smells like a$$): $79
a piece of pre-flag Master chalk: priceless (but costs $2-$3)
