Who had a kick-ass chemistry set as a kid?
I figure today about 95% of the chemicals provided are probably on a 'ban' list or not available.

I had one and the only real thing we ever made was invisible ink.

The rest of the time we would just add random stuff together, add a drop of random liquid, and shake it.

My brother had one... He use to light the sulfur on fire to watch it turn blue... I wonder if the fumes we inhaled was bad for us...?

Did everyone’s neighborhood have the urban legend about the kid who was blinded by an exploding glass bottle containing chlorine and Coke or was it just mine?

They must have used Pinesol on the good side of West Napoleon.

It was the 90's so it was probably not as kick-ass as some others here, but I loved the hell out of that. Same year I got the rock candy crystal growing kit.

Probably why I love science and I'm chubby.

Oh yeah use to live to burn sulphur and I did not know what I was doing.

I even burnt up my mother’s new leather couch accidentally. I set the test tube with sulphur on fire and accidentally panicked throwing it in the couch when I was 5.

Let’s see that leather couch.
- I stabbed it 4 times when my mom went outside to put the garbage can out when I was three. Remember it well. Locked her out, used the stool to get a kitchen knife, and cut up the couch, and let her back in blaming it on the poodle. Got spanked and sent to my room.

- I watch my mom iron and when she put the iron down I put it in the couch and burnt a hole in it at 4 yrs old. Got spanked and sent to be without my dinner.

- I poured a burning test tube of sulphur on it a year after she had it recovered. Got the board of education on my butt and sent to bed without my dinner.

- Beat the heck out of a kick in kindergarten for taking my tricycle. Grandpa gave me a high five and mom spanked me sending me to bed without my dinner.

I had creepy crawlers and it was dangerous.

It was basically a little oven that cooked plastic in metal molds. What could go wrong?

I mixed two chemicals together from a 100-piece set that came in a red metal box. I had no idea what I mixed but they began foaming rapidly so I threw the jar I mixed them in out an open window. Next day the grass beneath the window was dead and nothing ever grew there again.

Awesome memory 'cause I survived.
