    I have been watching those "dry ice bomb" videos, and think that the concept is really cool. But, I am unable to get ahold of dry ice. How other than dry ice could i make a mixture that produces enough gas to rupture a bottle? I was thinking filling a bottle half way with vinegar, and putting a coffee filter full of baking soda in and shaking after i put the cap on. OR putting mentos inside, but inside of a roll of paper, so when i shake the paper will saturate and the soda and mentos will mix... These are all probably stupid, Any suggestions?

    Thats not a bad idea. Even just coke and mentos with the cap on and slamming it down will give you a fiss. Just try something stupid and easy like sugar and Potassium Nitrate. Just light that on fire and you get some fun out of it. Or even better light it than enclose is, than throw it. Thats kind of a risk though.

    School lunches...

    I saw an episode of the Transformers long ago where they traveled back in time and derived potassium nitrate from seagull droppings. (Turned it into dragon's bane.)

    Also, it's supposed to crystallize out of basements in certain areas?


    But. The real answer?
    You don't.
    If you need to ask. You're not gettin' it.
    Plus, you're probably going to be under investigation now. Good luck.

    at any ordenary basic chemical shop..

    i think it is just fertilizer.. those little white balls you throw on the grass to make them grow..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
