This is intense. Turn your sound up real loud and watch. I love the guy at the end, "Let's Go! Let's Go!"

This is perfect with July Fourth coming up and all! Looks like I'm gonna build me some Freedom over this weekend. Thanks Caltech!
Do you, like Abu Zebaydah, want your very own H-bomb? You're in luck, thanks to these handy directions from Caltech! Read the whole thing, it's fantastic.

_First pour a few gallons of concentrated hydrofluoric acid into your uranium oxide, converting it to uranium tetrafluoride. (Safety note: Concentrated hydrofluoric acid is so corrosive that it will eat its way through glass, so store it only in plastic. Used 1-gallon plastic milk containers will do.) Now you have to convert your uranium tetrafluoride to uranium hexafluoride, the gaseous form of uranium, which is
convenient for separating out the isotope U-235 from U-238._

To get the hexafluoride form, bubble fluorine gas into your container of uranium tetrafluoride. Fluorine is available in pressurized tanks from chemical-supply firms. Be careful how you use it though because fluorine is several times more deadly than chlorine, the classic World War I poison gas. Chemists recommend that you carry out this step under a stove hood (the kind used to remove unpleasant cooking odors).

First transform the gas into a liquid by subjecting it to pressure. You can use a bicycle pump for this. Then make a simple home centrifuge. Fill a standard-size bucket one-quarter full of liquid uranium hexafluoride. Attach a six-foot rope to the bucket handle. Now swing the rope (and attached bucket) around your head as fast as possible. Keep this up for about 45 minutes.

I'm not one to drink energy drinks, but I think I could make an exception.

Would you travel across a valley to lick a camera lens?

I will make it a mission in life to own the ketchup robot and the hands free feeder.
