    Egg Drop

     While taking a summer extra activity class once way back when, we had an egg drop contest. The object of the contest, for the uninitiated, is to design an enclosure for an egg and drop it from a height. A successful design means the egg is intact.  Well, I had come up...

    As a chemist, I've made lots of things explode...usually intentionally.  There's an old joke among chemists that people become chemists for three reasons; to learn to make drugs, to learn how to poison people, or to blow **** up.  I don't do drugs, and there's nobody I...
