It's most definately milk thats 'on the turn.' I was making a latté this morning and when I put the espresso shot in the steamed milk, it seperated into what your pic looks like. Bleargh.
Luckily I had a new fresh milk in the fridge.

My guess would have been curdled milk.

Right, I will have to go with curdled milk. It's the only possible explanation.

I thought so paranormal shit was going on.

The other day, as I was making tea, I swear to batman, the cup moved. It like, skimmed across a few centimetres.

There's a good reason for that. If the bottom ridge of the cup was wet it created an air tight seal and air was trapped between the cup and the counter. As you poured the hot water into the cup it heated the air, which expanded, causing the cup to glide across the counter. It will also happen if you take a cap off a cold beverage and set it on a warm counter top, and all sorts of stuff. It's pretty neat, but it can be creepy.

Just sort of popped into my head and I ran with it. I love the abominable image it sparks. It's like a cross between those aborted baby signs catholics always trot around with and a dead walrus.

See, I thought about that, because I said specifically how no matter how little friction there is, an object cannot move without any force pushing it.
However, and I tell you this honestly. The cup moved as I was going to get the milk from the fridge. The cup was stationary for approximately 45 seconds. As I closed the fridge door and went towards where the cup was positioned, that's when I saw it move.

I was never having tea with her. She was having tea, I was talking to her, she drank it and basically said to me, "what the fuck is this shit".

The force is created by the heat energy effecting the air and causing it to expand. It most likely lifted up one side of the mug causing it to slide to one side, or the counter may not have been level and it was simply kinetic energy. It creates the sort of effect a hovercraft does, it's actually planing. It's happened to me before and the first time it happened I got curious and tried to reproduce it, and it worked strangely enough.

That's awesome. I always love it when these things are explained. The counter is a tiny bit uneven actually.
