Incredible video shows how just one tablespoon of olive oil can calm half an acre of waves on a lake within 2 minutes

If you like being out on water but aren't keen on waves, you might want to consider bringing some olive oil with you.

A new video shows that just one tablespoon of olive oil poured over water can spread out within minutes, calming the waves around you.

The oil spreads out to form a layer just one molecule thick, preventing wind from whipping up waves on the surface.
