1. Bond 26 atoms of Nitrogen into a single molecule.
2. Produce until you're satisfied with the amount.

Congratulations! You've just made the most powerful explosive substance ever formulated in the lab (to the best of my knowledge).

When he was 8 and I was 6, my brother joked that he could make nitroglycerin using hand cream ("with glycerin") and a candle (supposedly that's how he got the nitrogen). Being little, I thought that he could actually do it.

Well, I don't have any recipes for explosives myself (which, all things considered, is probably just as well :roll: ), but that reminds me of a couple months ago, when my fiance finished OCS and then told me he still had det cord left over...

I wonder if he's done anything with it yet. Probably not. I should ask him whatever happened to it...
