Milk On Fire

When I was in high school, I was more appreciative of fire.  My friends and I used to pour powdered creamer over a lighter or a lit match and watch the fireball slash “explosion” (approved by my parents, no less).  When I went camping last month, I tried to explain this to my friends, and they didn’t really get it.  We wanted to try it, but forgot before we left so didn’t get a chance.

I found an article about it here.  Chemistry teacher Neil Dixon demonstrates how exciting and practical chemistry lessons can still be taught in the classroom.

I’m not kidding, I used to do this in my driveway while my parents watched.
