irritatingly, the included graphic is one cited as a plot with conflict.

Totally trying this tomorrow.
Flash! "Handheld thermite

Chemistry and materials science teacher Edmund Escudero from Summit Country Day School in Cincinnati has a different take on the classic thermite demonstration. In the reaction, iron oxide (aka rust) and aluminum metal react energetically to yield iron metal, aluminum oxide, and tons of light and heat. Normally, the person running the demo mixes fine powders of the two substances and ignites them using a magnesium fuse, a sparkler, or potassium permanganate and glycerine. But Escudero (who is wearing safety glasses in the photo) simply takes two rusty iron spheres, wraps one in aluminum foil, and then smacks them together. “The impact generates sufficient energy to initiate a small, but dramatic, exothermic reaction,” he says.

Dropping off bike parts at a local shop, saw this collection of bumperstickers on one of the employees' cars.

Bad ideas in action: pig-n-ford races at Tillamook, Oregon. It's like a relay race where the baton is a squealing piglet and you have to hand-crank the car to get it started every lap.
