1. Anyone remember buying "snakes" at the fireworks dealer ?

I had no idea at the time those contained mercury.

Google "ammonium dichromate volcano" to see LOTS of videos -- or "mercury thiocyanate decomposition" (actually (NH4)2Cr2O7 and Hg(SCN)2, FWIW) to see video of snakes alone. Combining them was pure genius!

I was expecting to see video from the Discovery Channel tonight ...
