    A bit bored, bbattle? Try the following if you've never done it before.

    Take a 2 mL rubber pipette bulb. Stick in on a faucet with one of those adapters on the end that allows you to stick tubing on. Turn the faucet on at a very slow drip. Observe. Not nearly as amusing, but not nearly as messy, either.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Try this: take some dry ice and put it into a latex lab glove. Tie the glove in a knot, leave in the stairwell. Several minutes later, KaBoom!

    I've tried. Repeatedly. I seem to be unable to get it sufficiently leak-proof for this to happen. That said, the results (unexploded) make nice decorations around Thanksgiving.

    I heard that Alka Seltzer and greedy seagulls can make for an interesting combination. (I couldn't bring myself to perform the experiment)
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I know someone that did that when he was a kid. Very sickening, as he recounted it without a trace of remorse.
