Default Anti-Gravity in our bathroom's floor and walls?

Fast forward it to the copper pipe part is you don't want to watch the first 2 minutes or so...



I am no scientist... but that is some cool stuff happening inside regular copper pipes!

The moving magnet induces eddy-currents in the copper (copper is a very conductor), the eddy currents cause a magnetic field in the opposite direction of the magnets magnetic field which slows the magnet down. You can do this with any metallic tube (obviously has to be non-magnetic).

Hate to be THAT guy, but

Anti-gravity is the idea of creating a place or object that is free from the force of gravity. It does not refer to the lack of weight under gravity experienced in free fall or orbit, or to balancing the force of gravity with some other force, such as electromagnetism or aerodynamic lift.

Must be the reason most houses are wired with copper wired and almost all great cooking pans have a layer of copper to conduct heat evenly.

Copper is not used in all houses, many household wires are made from aluminum due to cost. Most people do however use copper for antenna wires and audio equipment.

Good cooking pans are made from copper because of an entirely unrelated effect that actually has to do with antigravity...

Actually aluminum has been barred in most building codes because it causes fires from overheating. As for conductivity which is what I was talking about as noted in the hi-lited portion of your post copper is the best for cooking. Y'all can talk sy-fi all you want I'll be content with electricity and cooking.

Aluminum is only barred in the States because people have no idea how to install it. You are not supposed to connect aluminum to copper as this cases oxidation which can lead to overheating, however if you connect it to brass you are just fine, which is what is recommended by all manufacturers. Copper is a better conductor than aluminum, which is why it is used for performance wiring.

Aluminum is also used in high power lines because of weight, if overheating was a problem then I doubt they would run 200k+ volts through it.

Aluminum is only allowed in conduit on the exterior of homes for a service entrance. Homes are 100 percent wired in copper due to the brief experiement in the 60's where aluminum was used in interior wiring only to find out it can break down and oxidate causing house fires.
