Honey is dribbled off the end of a chopstick into a pot below. As the falling stream stikes the pool of honey below, it turns itself into tight circular coils which rapidly begin to pile one on top of the other. A growing column of liquid coils of rope begin to emerge from above the surface of the honey in the pot in an effect referred to as the liquid rope-coil effect.

Uneveness in the amount of sinking at the base of the growing column of coils causes it to collaspe before a new column of liquid coils re-emerge and begin to rise up again.

The rate of coiling is increased as the height from which the honey is allowed to fall from is raised.
