neat. now do sodium!

I like the cut of your jib, m'boy! It's in the name of Disarmament!

Fuck that, do lithium.

Cesium is less impressive than sodium, it turns out.

Lithium's a good choice, though.

halon - 2008-06-14
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

It's funny, because he sounds a little like you cap'n

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.
Albuquerque Halsey - 2008-06-13
Sandals are good protocol for carrying liquefied gasses. Closed shoes can trap the LN against the skin, preventing your body heat from forming a layer of gas between the skin and liquid. (which acts as an insulator) Thus increasing the chance of frostbite.

Albuquerque Halsey - 2008-06-13
id like to amend this that wearing sandals is OK when handling LN in small amounts, but not in a laboratory/industrial setting. (duh)

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-06-13
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.

Big Name Celebrity - 2008-06-16
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

Look at all those fucking dorks. Holy shit.
