hogans: From the way the students reacted, I'd say either they never covered basic safety procedures, or they don't have proper equipment in the classroom. Probably both.
Eeteetoo: Why you gotta bring up that show... have to wait until summer time :(
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Eeteetoo: Why you gotta bring up that show... have to wait until summer time :(I KNOW!I can't wait either, but...So... you think he's gonna get cancer again? His family gonna get killed (not Walter Jr. I hope) or will he become the new Gus?
ThrobblefootSpectre: "Students said Reddington always makes class interesting."Well, there you go.
Rezurok: The demonstration in question?
OnlyM3: Obviously due to teachers not being paid enough.
planes: Back in 1958, you know, right after the Civil War, our chemistry teacher was demonstrating what a dust explosion in a flour mill is, with a bunsen burner, above a funnel full of flour, with a rubber tube attached to the funnel. He blew through the tube, sending a cloud of flour past the burner, resulting in a HUGE fireball, heading up to the old 12 foot ceiling, where is spread from corner to corner, lingered for maybe 15 seconds, then died out."Oops, too much flour", he said. Pretty amazing. Ever since then, I've always wanted to try this on the 4th of July, out in the driveway and late at night, with a propane torch, a shop vac, and 5 pounds of flour. Maybe next year
Krymson Tyde: Our high school teacher brought in sour mash and let us make moonshine to teach us distillation.
whipbambucket: I "liberated" some lycopodium power from the chem class in high school to show my stoner friends in art class. I had the powder in the cellophane wrapper from a pack of smokes, and had a buddy hold a lighter out while I smacked the package. When that crap hit the flame it blew such a fireball, that it turned the ceiling tiles black!We stood around like Bevis and Butthead laughing our asses off... until to teacher walked in./Csb....
Gough: Krymson Tyde: Our high school teacher brought in sour mash and let us make moonshine to teach us distillation.So did ours. That cured me of drinking 'shine.
Gough: Rezurok: The demonstration in question?I was thinking it was that one. I rarely get to use the term "carboy" anymore.
