Crying statues and other sneaky scientific magic?


My chem karate is wannabe grade and I can think of at least a couple ways to make crying statues. It is amazing just how much influence a dab of dessicant in the right place can have.

Do any of you know about other instances where a little chem knowledge was used so deviously?

I meant devious. Chemical warfare was obvious. Even chimps throw crap at each other.

St. Januarius' blood seems to be another religious instance.

I have seen a marketplace bomoh/shamen/mystic/healer.... suck a tumour out of a person and spit out blood without breaking the victims skin,
after rinsing a KMnO4 loaded mouth with a glass of water :P

I think a good one would be to make flash paper, like flash cotton. Nitrate the paper, make sure its stable and neutralised, write notes to friends, attach the snap from a xmas cracker. Pull the cord and the note is gone, just watch your fingers. (probably a little advanced)

Or use an indicator as an ink, say Phenolphthalein as it is sometimes colourless but i bet there are better choices, then expose to ammonia to reveal.

A) I recognised the colour
B) There was a clump of un-dissolved crystals where he spat

He should've used Fe(SCN)2+ instead:P

In one telling of his escape, John Dillinger broke out of jail by carving a fake gun out of a potato and then painting it with iodine tincture to turn it blue-black.
