neat. now do sodium!
Fuck that, do lithium.
CESIUM OR GO HOME, FAGGOTS
Cesium is less impressive than sodium, it turns out.
Lithium's a good choice, though.
Who told you that?
The alkali metals get more exciting as you go down the periodic table. Sodium doesn't do much other than slowly smolder unless it's finely powdered.
I learned it first-hand in high school, when some friends and I stole some alkali metal samples from a local community college. Cesium just sputters and sparks, but sodium burns steadily and then explodes.
Well, I won't say that you're lying, but I think you may be genuinely mistaken. Chemically, cesium is WAY more electropositive than other alkali metals, making it highly more reactive with oxygen. I can only guess that you probably didn't get an actual Cs sample; if you had, you probably would have detonated the vessel you submerged it in.
Fun cesium fact: its melting point is around 81 degrees Fahrenheit!
Here's another fun alkali metal reaction video:
My understanding is that sodium makes a better bang because the steady reaction produces a cloud of hydrogen gas. Cesium will also produce hydrogen, but the hydrogen will almost instantly ignite without getting a chance to accumulate.

-1 star for the überdork narrating the filming in the last 15 seconds

God gave us chemistry so we might go forth and do crazy shit to pools.

I would love to have seen that from under the water.

Wearing sandals while carrying a huge, open bowl of liquid nitrogen right in front of your junk, always a good idea.
id like to amend this that wearing sandals is OK when handling LN in small amounts, but not in a laboratory/industrial setting. (duh)

Fuck you Halsey, first chance I get, I'm gonna buy me some dry ice, cut it into bite-sized chunks, and SWALLOW THEM BITCHES!
I'll be breathing smoke till I die!
Anyway yeah, glad y'all liked the crazy "Pool Filled With..." video.

Now if you can find a similar video with dumber dorks using dry ice, and then jumping in the pool, I'll 5-star it.
'Cuz I like snuff films.

i'm no scientist but i gotta say this looks spectacularly dangerous

Someone threw Stripe into the pool.

Look at all those fucking dorks. Holy shit.
