11thCommandment, what is wrong with you and what kind of a crowd did you hang out with?
I remember a science teacher telling us a story about a kid who took a piece of sodium from school to try this and stuck it in his pocket. It was a hot day and the kid was sweating on the way home, and when he got sweaty enough, the sodium went off in his pocket. Probably that was just to keep any of us from taking his sodium.
If a high school (?) chem teacher had told us that story we would have turned to one another and said, "Cool! Let's try it."
And for the females on here that is exactly how males think, which is why most of those videos you see of people doing weird and dumb stuff which results in minor disasters and injuries involve guys; because, what the hell, let's give it a go.
