    I don't mess with things like equations and such. I passed chemistry only because the instructor feared having me in class again the next year. Fear is a good: fear works.

    The scary thing for me is that my kid's school does an annual Green Up Day where all of the students pick up the trash around the roads.

    Leather work gloves and safety glasses. Gloves are a good idea anyway with or without the remote possibly of a bottle bomb.

    True, but I was referring to the chemical aspects, not the legal ones.
    Sometimes people even provide free instructions.

    That's the same formula that my chain saw uses. I can never get the darn thing to start. Maybe I need to throw it.

    I have never heard of such things before. Just yesterday I was going to Walgreens and I noticed a plastic soda bottle sitting by the Red Box machines and I picked it up and threw it in the trashcan.

    Two of my son's best friends were chemistry majors, all 4.0 students thru all grades, college, etc. They were always showing 'interesting' things they could do.

    Non-destructive, you clearly never got an RF burn or put them near your computer! I've had my fair share of zaps, shocks and smoke from electrical projects. Chem never really bit me.

    Chemistry is not my thing, either. I have converted a few op-amp chips into smoke, however, and I've set a few polarized SMD capacitors on fire as well.

    Rather, I experienced an unexpected thermal event which was not the stated objective at the time.

    A quick google on "long reach gripper" brought up a number of tongs. If you don't want to cough up the $10 or so, you can make some tongs out of two slats and a block of wood.
