I got a periodic table jigsaw puzzle! It looks like a lot of fun for a real geek. (If only I knew one...)

Got a handful of very nice used(but are honestly brand new) advanced organic chemistry books.

Yes! I found an ancient bottle of formaldehyde while x-mas shopping at an antique sale. The bottle itself is beautiful and its about 1/3 full of white solid paraformaldehyde after polymerizing over the years. Looks like at least WWII era. I'm sure the lady was quite happy for someone to take it off her hands.

I got 2 road flares (use-by date 2003 lol) that I plan to extract strontium nitrate from

Clamps, lab stands, iron ring with ceramic mesh... ordering a bunsen and vacuum tool (either an aspirator or a hand pump), as well as a few other basic things. Also got 25g of KMnO4 and a few grams of elemental Mn (both from HMS-Beagle). Got a ground-glass stopper (wrong size, so re-ordering or something).

I got nitric aicd and hydrogen peroxide to the face... Seriously I got 113g niacin, few beakers and a very used microscale glassware set but with useful part.

I also got some money and bought a biofilter for my nitrosononomas/nitrobacter experiments.

I got the same periodic table jigsaw puzzle that Dr. Bob got! I also received a periodic table poster and a copy of <u>The Periodic Table: Its Story and Its Significance</u> by Eric R. Scerri.
