Good one.

Hahaha, I can feel your pain!

What was inside your beaker?

Maybe I can find an old video from my high-school. A video in which my teacher demonstrated an Al Fe2O3 thermite without closing the sash of our side of the fume hood. The reaction didn't go as planned: the flower pot cracked, and all the iron flew around our ears. If I find it, I'll upload it!

The beaker just had mineral oil in it.

Not 100% sure it was 100% mineral oil, so perhaps Lady Luck smiled on me once again.

Edit :

If anyone is replaying the video a lot to try to work out the word at the end it was 'Cock'.

I've got quite a few of these, and was thinking about compiling them into a 'blooper reel' for my YouTube channel. Mistakes are ok as long as you learn from them! (and aren't seriously injured by them)

@MHS
I would love to see these.
Although I rather suspect your blooper reel might be my standard practice. :) You set the bar pretty high.
