    Yes however experiments must be duplicatable, should be documented using cursive on velum in Indio ink. Then and only then will science experiments stand the test of time unedited

    In all honesty, I am glad all of the crazy stuff I tried when I was a kid is not written down any place!!!

    I don't think any of mine made it to hospital, police, or insurance records!

    I think I was 9 years old when I learned how to make gun powder. If the internet was around in the 60's I am sure I would have learned much earlier. I think that was the year I also got a chemistry set.

    Ah yes, gun powder, this forum sure does spark some memories. We will not discuss the recipe here, but that was fun to make. A friend and I made model rockets. Found an add in the back of Popular Science or Popular Mechanics magazine. Had to get the engines by mail order. Sent away for a catalog. Put together an order so the total with postage was an even dollar amount. Scrape together the cash from mowing lawns, shoveling snow, etc. Mail it off and wait for them to arrive in red card board tubes.

    One day we decided we could make our own engines. Before the internet, you had to REALLY dig for information like that! Even talked with our 8th grade science teacher about it. Mr.Allen, one of those teachers you never forget, told us a few secrets and told us how to work so we did not blow ourselves up. We never got a good recipe, and we both still have all of our fingers. it might be a good thing that we did not discover about sugar rockets then.

    After school one day, Mr. Allen even showed us what happens when you sprinkle locopodium powder from 5 feet above a flame. I have never forgotten that word since that day! LOL. Of course now we have Wiki... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycopodium_powder

    Here's my wife with some of the black stuff we can't discuss in public. Freshly made to be shortly used.
