    10 Classic Toys That Could Kill You

    10 Classic Toys That Could Kill You including at number 7 "Atomic Energy Lab". I wish I had had one as a wee lad; certainly puts my chemistry set to shame! My sister did have Creepy Crawlers and she escaped unscathed.

    Am I the only one that thinks the 1950's glass blowing set sounds awesome?

    When I did chemistry at A-level I had a lot of fun accidentally nuking various bits of glassware. I melted more than one boiling tube and several glass stirring rods and there was a particularly memorable explosion one day in Organic chemistry when the side of a stoppered beaker in a closed condensing system perforated... Yeah that was fun.

    I seem to remember an experiment on distillation that resulted in a rubber bung being shot clean through the flat roof of the portacabin the lab was in!

    I had a chemistry set when I was young.

    Some of the chemicals tasted quite bitter.... That could explain a few things.
