A chunk of pure calcium (sodium does this as well) will explode when placed into water. I watched a video of a guy throwing a chunk of calcium into a pond and it shot straight up and made a sound as loud as a gunshot, came back down into the pond. It kept doing that until the calcium had dissolved. In fact, any mineral that belongs to the far left column of the periodic table will do this. They are known as the alkali metals and all react explosively to water. Waaay cooler than vinegar and baking soda, but also more expensive.

Looks at his calcium pill and glass of water...  Puts the calcium pill back in the bottle and closes the cupboard.   ;D

Makes you wonder how your bones and the water in your body get along so well.


And what about clams? Their whole shell is calcium carbonate.

Cesium is the most explosive of the alkali metals. Two grams will blow up your bathtub.
Sodium will catch fire when exposed to water, hence that's why it is stored in oil, to keep the water out.

Go left and down for reactivity, and and up and right too, on the periodic table of elements.

Flourine is the most reactive element of all.

Calcium carbonate is not pure calcium. It's bonded with carbon, hence "carbonate"

The earliest recorded case of a man giving up smoking was on April 5, 1679, when Johan Katsu, Sheriff of Turku, Finland, wrote in his diary "I quit smoking tobacco." He died one month later.

"The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket."


I was watching Myth Busters the other day and they were trying to cook a turkey on a radar dish.  Makes me wonder if they actually put out enough to melt chocolate.  The one expert did state that the power used was much lower than a microwave.  It is possible that after finding the melted chocolate someone was smart enough to figure out that they were being cooked as well.   ;D


Oh...and  Pie is good.- FACT...


I have a really nice mud & cow pie combo for you to try.  YUM!  I agree MOST pie is good, but not all pie is good.  - FACT.   ;D

Ahhhh.... but he didn't say "Pie tastes good."
A cow pie is good because it is in one spot as opposed to splattered thinly across a couple square yards.
Mud pie has too many definitions to get into right now.

"The thing that boggles my mind is that a photon was emitted from the center of a star 13.5 billion years ago, and it traveled--through some miracle--unobstructed through its own galaxy, and past an unimaginable number of galaxies, stars, dust clouds, planets, nebulae, and somehow it landed in our galaxy. In our solar system. around our planet. and somehow that photon ended up not only hitting that tiny telescope, but hitting the exact spot of the light sensor that is only a few inches in area, and that was only pointed in that direction for a few moments." -enotzen

It takes millions of years for a photon to reach its' way from the center of a star to space. It's just so darn think inside those ya know.
