*how to spawn demons: a beginner’s guide to chemistry
1) chlorine is a gas in its elemental. it looks like cola over dry ice.
2) no cesium’s not that energetic.
"As you can see, the rubidium and cesium explosions are, frankly, rather pathetic. We were very disappointed, and began to doubt our own ability to create proper explosions. One idea was that perhaps the rubidium and cesium were in fact so reactive that they blew themselves off the surface of the water before most of the material could react. In this clip I explain this theory, which was supported by the fact that we often found exciting little bits of explosive material on the surrounding concrete (which we rendered safe by use of a large squirt gun)… [When replicated with an underwater setup] Rubidium did a reasonable job (although the bowl was not shattered as we had hoped), but cesium again disappoints. What’s going on here? Are rubidium and cesium really not that reactive after all? Were the consulting chemists (assuming they had any) just playing a joke on the Brainiac team to see if they could get them to fake some explosions?" source
3) its copper sulfate and iron. look at the colors and the redox chemistry.
12) calcium just doesn’t do that - it looks like a version of the diy sterno gel. see the flames? that looks like alcohol vapors.
