View Full Version : Any chemists in the house?
03-27-04, 01:17 AM
Alright, myself and a friend saw this video and immediately decided that we MUST do this ourselves. However, we can't seem to find out what exactly is needed to do it, so I'm banking on the theory that collectively , The Safehouse knows everything that need be known. *cough* Of course, I'm assuming (and hoping) that based on the name of the video, that the end result is an edible (and friggin' 'UGE) marshmallow...
Our gigantic graham crackers await...
All that glitters... Even the stars
All things precious... Even your life
The King of Bandits can steal them all

Before trying the Safehouse-suggested chemicals in your experiment, I hope you've made out your Will and had it notarized?
*edit* and watch the end of the video, it's just some foamy stuff that's created, you can already see it melting away by the end. Edited by: Andorion at: 3/27/04 1:23 am

Okay, so maybe it's not a good idea to ask Safehousers about stuff which involves chemical reactions... and maybe it isn't a good idea to eat anything that Safehouser-suggested reactions happen to produce... but dammit, I want a gigantic marshmallow!
And damn you Andorion for bursting my mallow-inflated bubble with your... logic, and stuff . And I hate misleadingly named... things!

that's what happens when you mix bleach and amonia... don't believe me? Try it!

You take saltpetre, carbon and sulphur, and then light it on fire. Booya. where anger is big and fueled by hydrogen

Darn it guys, he's just asking how to make Polyurethane foam, not how to get himself killed.
Do we get anything special if we are somehow related to his darwin award?

A pack of lawyers crawling up our asses... actually... they'd probably go after the safehouse rather than us, individually - you know, sue the mod's and stuff. *devilish grin* in that case...
Has anyone here ever flushed a brick of concentrated sodium?
03-27-04, 09:10 AM
umm no but i also dont want my Septic tank to become a crater. but id love to drop a chunk of sodium the size of a Yugo into the nearby lake.........

Theres something on theWing....

There was/is a website with pics/video of that guy catapulting a brick of sodium into a small manmade lake.
His first experiments involved a kiddie pool.
EDIT : that site with the foam video also has this video.
Some idiots mixing bleach and alchohol in a bottle, then they seal it and shake it up. Edited by: Ackar at: 3/27/04 9:49 am

Just stick a normal marshmellow into a microwave, instant giant marshmellow =)
03-27-04, 01:57 PM
Then do the same thing with a fork =-)
You know, I tried to microwave 2 Pop-Tarts when I was a kid...still in their foil wrapper. Note to self: don't do that again!

While this isnt exactly Chemistry, it made me laugh when I first saw it a few years back www.twinkiesproject.com/ . Farnyr Shrubhugger

Lot easier ways to make bombs with simple household items
Good ol days of the Jolly Roger
I think I still have some homemade napalm in our garage Works wonders for firestarters

Crystal draino and gasoline, seriously don't try this though. It could blow up and make you a flaming person. Hara

Sugar water + concentrated HCl?
Give that a shot. I don't know if you can get ahold of it... but 12 M HCl or greater might be able to get the job done like that.
Also for a fun little side show... get some 15 M Ammonia, and 12 M HCl... and combine them in something that conducts heat really well. It'll get hot. Really hot. Hahn Pirate -- Arrr Matey!

Actually whats more fun that sodium, is potassium. Drop a 1cm cube of the stuff into a bathroom toilet flush and run.

For anyone who wants to try this on a smaller scale...
Disclaimer: I will not be held responsible for any damage caused by anyone actually attempting this.
Edit: After a bit more searching, I found the site that has the video of the guy doing the experiments with sodium here. Caldiien

I've always wanted to drop a bowling ball sized chunk of potassium into a large body of water... and watch... from very very far away, hehe...

I also liked the guys Magnesium burning page.
Edit : I just finished with his Radium page where he writes about the radiation health fad that included radioactive water jugs for 'energizing' your drinking water. Edited by: Ackar at: 3/29/04 1:45 am

Time to mention the get a 1inchx1inchish tab of potassium, coated in oil, stick it under the lid of the toilet sit. Person sits, it shoots into toilet, wait for oil to seperate in water.. watch as the bathroom door violently shakes when someone gets exploded off the john and into the door.
