Okay one last for today...the story has to be explained.
My dad worked as a haz-mat trainer in the fire department, so he had lots of books on chemicals. A couple notes for kids, the other for parents.
289. Do not attempt to use household chemicals to create what you think will be a small chemical reaction.
290. Small chemical reactions can easily blow the garage door off the hinges without even trying. (indefinite grounding number 2)
291. A flying garage door can do serious damage to the front of your dad's car.
292. Rule 289 can lead to a lack of facial hair.
For parents....NEVER LEAVE A HAZMAT MANUAL IN REACH OF YOUR TEENAGE CHILD.
293. Never scratch yourself in private areas after a day in the woods.
294. You think poison Ivy itches on your hands???? Think again.
295. I am not so sure insurance covers the damage inflicted to your dads car in light of #290.
296. Muratic acid (undiluted) is not good cleaner for anything other than the pool, with the exception of cement.
297. Parents get really mad when you use muratic acid to etch your name in 5 foot letters on the driveway. (20 years later...you can still see it!)
298. Never play "I wonder if acid will dissolve (insert item)", trust me it will.
Peace and Tranquility all depends on your frame of reference.
