...but I wish table salt didn't have such a high melting point. :( Take a look at this.

Nice, rather nice indeed.

Any links on information for this? Might want to see if I can give it a try after all.

:)

Do you know how much salt was in that?

No, the guy purchased pure sodium. It's extremely dangerous trying to make sodium at home by melting table salt and then going through electrolysis. First off, most stoves wouldn't be able to get hot enough. Second, the chlorine gas being released can kill easily (Depending on surroundings).

He used about 100g.

Hmm, I think I remember doing that in sophomore chemistry.

:P

Meh, if I want to see stuff blow up and look pretty, I'll go old fashioned and shoot something. Still some cool footage you have there.

Oh, yeah, about that chlorine gas. It was a very common chemical weapon in World War I. Saying it can kill easily is both an overstatement and an understatement. It easily kills almost everyone exposed to large amounts of it. The death, on the other hand, is not easy. Burning of mucous membranes, burning of the eyes, your throat feels like it is on fire. You're lungs literally burn. Nasty stuff, really.

I know, but in a confined area like a kitchen/stove, it wouldn't take a lot of gas. The problem is people not knowing the dangers and trying to make huge amounts of it...
