As a kid in the later 50's we made all sorts of pipe bombs and other
interesting things. Potassium Nitrate was available as Saltpeter in
drugstores as was other stuff, like Glycerin and Potassium Permologate.
Amazing, we had a fun time, and, no one was ever hurt. Today we would be
deemed as "terrorists". We could even go into a gun store and buy shotgun
shells to take apart just for the powder. Regards - Mike

Yeah. I want fries with my fries. :=))

As a kid, doing real chemistry and physic was what made school fun. We had
real labs too! With real glassware and real chemicals.

I'd have been utterly bored stiff with what they are teaching now.
