    States of Matter

    So, there's solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Are there any other states? And what are sources of plasma besides stars? Is fire plasma?

    Fire isn't plasma, it's just visible heat/chemicals released from some oxidation reactions.

    More states are predicted to exist at extremely low temperatures. No idea if they have actually been demonstrated in an experiment yet.

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    The wikipedia entry has a really good list:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_matter

    Though oddly it lumps my favorite, the supercritical fluid, under gas.

    I believe that one is called a bose constant, but you have to be near subzero to get it.
