"While anecdotal evidence would suggest that many people have thrown sodium into the lakes and streams of the world, they have been reprehensibly lax in documenting the results....The first step was the procurement, through eBay, of three and half pounds of solid sodium metal for about a hundred dollars. This is a decent price for a small quantity like this. Small being a relative term: It's used by the ton in industry, but anything more than a few grams is a dangerous quantity if found in your home. Three and a half pounds is enough, for example, to blow your home to bits under the right conditions."
What I thought would be the ravings of an puerile lunatic obsessed with blowing things up turned out to be the ravings of a nature freak obsessed with blowing things up. Rather a dandy combination, I must admit. Don't miss the part about the butterflies.Posted by tmonkey at October 09, 2002 11:04 AM
