You should see his mercury, liquid nitrogen and artillery shell fireworks test videos. They're just as bad.

The video of the Samsung Galaxy S 5 in mercury - it hurt my brain.

Besides, you just KNOW that a person so cavalier with expensive gadgets and such large amounts of mercury, is just going to dump it all somewhere in the forest.

I'm impressed with the number of people here who think it's a bad thing to try something out to see what happens. Compressing TATP in aluminum foil with your hands? Stupid. Because you're going to die. Leaving a phone to sit in a tub of mercury overnight? Come on. Why the hell not?

Are you kidding? This is great?



I'm not a liar, I'm just an enthusiastic celebrant of opposite day.
I post pictures of chemistry on instagram as bismuthate. http://iconosquare.com/bismuthate
or this viewer if you don't have an instagram (it sucks though) http://web.stagram.com/n/bismuthate

and the alpha aminitin molecule..

he only has 3 videos so far but i think he should absolutely do more....

No, he easily could know. But he's probably either ghetto or smart, but not both.
He deserves more views though, that's for sure.

Your assumption based on him being "cavalier with expensive gadgets" (rich) is so pathetic I think you are actualy joking. I really hope you are...

supposing hes high its not really that bad, to be honest.. but damn, so much wrong

500g TATP C1 (dangerous??)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Z9wG9XbW2k

however the one who created the video did test this composition's physical stability, which were very unexpected, he couldnt detonate it with a hammer and took more than 2 grammes of TATP to detonate
but still its not one of the most chemically stable compounds, anyways

more edit: this gem: he performs runoff even before the .. cellulose is in the acids

credits for making nicely simplified videos tho, sometimes incredible it didnt go bad

~25 drops = 1mL @dH2O viscocity - STP
Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.

That's awesome, really. I just reshared that video with my institution's mailing list (well, the microfabrication group at least).

Yep, I am serious, I stand by my statement and hereby I double down on it.

Why on Earth would he dump the mercury in the forest when it fits into a pint container and he clearly enjoys owning it?

He's got no qualms destroying expensive gadgets - he'll just discard the mercury just as easily.

He destroyed the (sure, we'll say "expensive") gadget for an experiment, out of curiosity. What exactly is he going to gain from dumping mercury out in the woods?

I'm curious about the back story. How is it that he has so many phones that he is (presumably) unable to offload onto friends or relatives or sell? I don't for a.moment believe he is buying all those phones himself.
He comes across as cavalier and unknowledgeable. Whether this equates to irresponsible disposal or not is another question. I wouldn't be surprised.

It would be nice to see some more shockingly bad chemistry in this thread. That TATtP in alfoil was unbelieveable

I finally got around to watch those. Rather terrible. Unlike other terrible videos, these were almost unwatchable because of a hefty dose of boringness.

I have some videos that could be put on this list. Not for bad chemistry, but i havn't really gotten the whole how to make chemistry interesting thing down yet. So they are long and boring. My voice is dull and hardly exciting.

I'm surprised no one seems to have linked to this one yet (correct me if I'm wrong on that): extraction of uranium from a high count carbonaceous U ore by the pool side:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRdZouC7CRo

Watch him dry his impure U compound with a blower heater! (in the comments he claims it was fine because... the garage doors were closed! Ooo-kaay)

It's an impressive case of a guy who on the one hand seems to understand the chemistry well, yet on the other hand is clueless with regards to radiation hazards...
