in my chemistry class(we were using Magnesium for an experiment) there were these 2 girls who thought there magnesium was dirty (oxidization) so they were getting ready to wash it in the sink... if i wasnt standing next to them the could have really hurt themselves. this is when i realized the teacher never said what the hazards of magnesium were, like you cant put out the fire with warter, because it makes it burn faster.

I`d rather see phosphorous mixed with potassium carbonate (potassium silicate, magnesium carbonate? something like that...)
But don`t try that at home (unless you have a camcorder)

This is about as exciting as air. Seen and done thousands of times before.
