Know any chemistry?

Particularly the chemistry of, um, highly unstable, heavily nitrated compounds?

I just dare you to try to read this latest missive from Derek Lowe with a straight face.

Not really any knowledge from chemistry expect what I remember vaguely from school, but funny to read

I remember in high school we were doing some simple experiments with calcium metal. I borrowed some from my neighbors, we pooled-it and I dropped the pieces in the sink, covering the sink with foil. Next, turned-on the water, waited a little bit, and dropped-in a match. Ka-Pow!
I love his entire blog.
